The Power of Good SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

This morning, I was reviewing the traffic from one of my websites and I was very surprised at the annual traffic growth. Early in 2010, I migrated the site over from a static HTML site to an SEO-optimized WordPress site. You can see in April of 2010 when I made the switch and the growth started.
