A constant desire/struggle of all website owners is how to get more traffic to your site. We all want to have a regular and high-level stream of engaged visitors coming to our site and hungry for our new content and product offerings.

We just have to ensure we’re doing it right. Check out my “4 Rules of SEO” infographic for how to do SEO the right way, since Google’s Panda, Penguin and Hummingbird algorithm updates, which changed the SEO game somewhat.
