I was wondering if anybody have done SEO in hosting because i know it's really tough to get any search results from this subject. Personally i think all the "big dog" company out there pretty much got all the organic searches and also adsense and such.
Well i'm trying to figure it out before i start a web hosting company. Love to hear some opinions
I agree with bluedreamer, I'm a member of this forum since 2001 and have read and tried to start up my own hosting business without much success since there are so many of them around the net.
Competition are always good IMO as they drive me to do better and better. Like what bluedremer said find your niche, since i love designing i decided to start up my own graphic/web design business that also offer web hosting though i'm not a millionare yet, but i manage to make ends meet.
Anyway i was talking to one of my clients the other day chatting away about business and he said there are so many of the same business now days and everyone is fighting for clients back a decade ago there were hardly any.
Find your niche and find your point of difference.
SEO takes time and work. Like any business there is always the chance of success in Hosting, but don't rely on Search Engine rankings. You need to take time and give that time before you can expect much traffic from there.
My recommendation (if you aren't going to hire a professional) would be to research SEO and start optimizations. Then all you can do is wait.
