As business owners we have to weigh up the choices we make about our marketing budgets. Getting a return on the advertising dollar is all important in these tough financial times.

Once your web site has been online for 6-8 weeks, do a report on your web site’s results to date. You should have access to your web site’s statistics to check your unique visitors for the last calendar month, and you will be able to see which search engines have started to send you visitors.
