However, there are instances when we can see that companies that may have been great in the brick and mortar age and yet do not feature in the business in these times of the new age economy of an online presence.
What then separates the men from the boys or the wheat from the chaff? The answer to that is quite simple and at once complex too. Simple when you know the way the search engines function and the phrases or even words that people use more often when they are searching for things that they want to use in an endeavor to further their convenience, if they are individuals or their bottom and top lines if they are companies.
