When starting a new home based business online there are several essential steps you should follow if you want it to be a successful money making venture. There are five ways you can jump start your home business in order to put it in front of the online masses almost immediately.
The first way you can get your home business off to a fast start is by Optimizing your website for the major search engines. If your website gets ranked on the first page of Google or any other of the main search engines you’ll receive lots of free traffic to your site. You can accomplish this in several ways.
Keyword research is one of the most important ways of getting your site ranked because when someone enters the keywords you used your web site will be listed in the search engine results.Two very useful tools to use to generate a list of keywords related to your market is the free word tracker tool or the google adwords tool.
Meta Tags are another useful optimization tool. According to Wikipedia Meta Tags or Meta elements are HTML or XHTML elements used to provide structured metadata about a Web page. Such elements must be placed as tags in the head section of an HTML or XHTML document. Meta elements can be used to specify page description, keywords and any other metadata not provided through the other head elements and attributes. Be sure to use your main keywords in each of the descriptions.
A second way to get your web page noticed is by writing articles which contain backlinks to your home page. Submit your finished product to the many different article directories online and before you know it you will reap the benefits of free traffic to your site.
A third way to make sure your website stays in the public eye is to update it with fresh content on a regular basis. You can accomplish this in several ways including writing and posting new articles daily as we discussed earlier. You can also add free news feeds and a sports update page to your site which will insure new content daily. You can achieve this by adding RSS feeds to your web pages.
You can also add content by Blogging on your site on a daily basis. Also allow comments on your blog. You can also freshen your content regularly by adding an RSS feed from an article writing website that you respect. Also adding a Forum to your site is a good way to attract and hold the attention of your visitors and turn them into customers.
A fourth way to establish your home business online is by adding Google analytics to your site. Google Analytics is a free statistics tracking and analysis service that allows website administrators to analyze traffic flow on a web site. One of the biggest advantages Google Analytics provides over other analysis software is its ease of use.
With a few clicks, you can define any range of dates from which statistics can be viewed. Among other things it helps you distinguish the number of new visitors from the number of repeat visitors. It’s a tool that can help make your website better.
The fifth and final way to help make your home business website well known online is simply by giving away stuff. If you have an Internet marketing site for example you can give away software or you can write an e-book to offer to your visitors. An important component of any give-away is to update or change your free products on
a regular basis in order to keep people coming back.
These are just a few of the many ways you can get your home business off to a fast start online. By implementing as many of these tactics as you can will almost guarantee you will have more visitors than you can handle in no time at all.

This is my new Blog and having been away from it for a couple of years it’s great to be back because I really enjoy it. Just to tell you something about myself, my wife and I are currently working with Autistic adults in the state of Maine and we love it. Although we’re from Canada, originally from Newfoundland, this is our second stint working in Maine and the two men we are working with this time around are great. We’ve become very attached to these young men and we consider ourselves to be a family. Actually our job title is that of Therapeutic Foster Parents and of course we take it very seriously. One of the main reasons we take it so seriously is that we are advocates for these young men because at times they can’t speak for themselves.
The sad part about our job here in Maine is that we have to leave the country after 18 months. The reason for this being the company who hired us and sponsored us into the US could only get us into the country by way of a Training Visa with the main condition being we have to leave after 18 months. We were here under the same circumstances in 2007 and had to leave the guys we were caring for at that time at the end of 2008.
This of course was very difficult for the three men we were working with and living with at the time and it was also very difficult for us because we became very attached and as I mentioned earlier we became a family. One of the main benefits of coming back is that we get to see the guys we worked with on our first visit and we also get to do what we enjoy which is caring for and helping these young men.
Because of our love for what we do and for the people we work with I will be dedicating a Page on this website to Autism and to the people who live with it on a daily basis. I’m hoping this will help educate people who aren’t familiar with what is fast becoming a global concern and help to raise funds for research.
The other objective of this website is to offer Home Business advice and present opportunities to people who are interested in making a legitimate living by working from home.
I’m hoping to have a great deal of relevant content added soon and I hope people will make it a point to visit often. Thank you for visiting and for taking the time to read this information.
The following two videos should give you some idea of the majestic beauty of Newfoundland:
I’ve added a video below, one of which is actually an advertisement by a local brewery located in St. John’s, Newfoundland which is where I’m from. But it contains some great shots of the area and I like to think portrays what we, as Newfoundlanders, are all about: People who care about people, who work hard and play hard but aren’t afraid to laugh at ourselves. In the following videos you will see many examples of this outlook on life as portrayed by local entertainers performing at what we call “Kitchen Parties”.
These are events where neighbours come together to have a few drinks and entertain one another through song and dance. Please take the time to have a look.
