Search engine optimization (SEO) is one of the trickiest aspects of MLM marketing, and one that most network marketing companies and distributors constantly struggle with. The main reason for this is that SEO and paid search (PPC) can be very complicated, multi-faceted areas of MLM marketing, and the landscape is constantly changing. In order to stay competitive, you have to push to keep pace with the accelerating speed at which Google and other top search engines are innovating Internet search.
For network marketing companies, it’s important to know how potential distributors and customers are searching online for your type of business opportunity and products. Chances are if you’re ignoring SEO, you’re losing a lot of ground quickly to savvier competitors and new MLM companies, and you need to get in the game…NOW!
Distributors are also looking to rank in search engine results more and more, and this can be seen by the quickly growing number of independent reps that are blogging like gangbusters. Most distributors agree – company provided replicated websites with little personalization allowed will leave you buried in search results – and they’re right.
