web marketingBusinesses of all types do a lot of strange things when it comes to online marketing. Sometimes logic seems to take a back seat.

Online marketers and other corporate executives are often bright folks who actually lead successful businesses. But some of their Internet-related decisions are just mind-boggling.

Here are just some of the ones I've encountered over the years - some shared by friends and others I experienced first-hand. Unfortunately, it's apparent that many of these happen all of the time.

Businesses would avoid a lot of aggravation if executives just turned to some seasoned experts before going down costly paths. You can learn a little by getting a free copy of my new study, "Small Businesses Just Don't Get SEO."

Free Study: Small Businesses Often Mess Up with SEO

Most small businesses don’t have a good handle on search engine optimization (SEO), missing opportunity after opportunity to connect with prospective customers who could help them be more profitable.

They aren’t fully grasping just how many factors must come together to ensure high rankings on major search engines – variables like page titles, keyword-rich page headers, inbound links from other web sites and more.

As a result, our free study of 200 diverse small businesses, "Small Businesses Just Don't Get SEO," found that 62% of their web sites don’t rank on the first page of Google for even one keyword phrase. More than half (51%) don’t use page titles with keywords (they merely list “welcome” or “home” or usually only a company name). We selected the ReferenceUSA database to randomly select small businesses for the study (we are not affiliated with any of the companies we identified).

The wide range of small businesses we studied offer such products and services as:

  • Pizza
  • Legal counsel
  • Catering
  • Local package deliveries
  • Hair care
  • Engineering consulting
  • Toys for children
  • Real estate agents
  • Plumbers
  • Gymnastics training
  • Beer kegs
  • Commercial signs
  • Psychologists
  • and many more
