It is commonplace to hear people talking about buying art as a art_-_145516_-_beach_access_-_26x34financial commitment, but should this be the true reason we buy art?

They treat art more like a investment than what it truly is, which is loveliness to be enjoyed by anyone.

Lloyd Dobson “Author And Artist”

1_-_BOOK_COVER Lloyd Dobson “The Author & Artist” – Sounds Kinda Nice, Right? The title of my new book is “How To Get Page #1 In Search Engines” and is now available on Amazon as a Kindle eBook at $3.99, a Paperback at $12.99 and soon to be released an audible book at $9.99.

A few years ago I was paying Google (PPC aka Paid Per Click) anywhere from $100 to $500 per month to rank on their #1 page to drive traffic and buyers to my oil paintings. After several  months of this type of advertising I began researching why the 10 listings through the center were appearing without paying Google for those positions and found the answer.

How To Use Google To Drive Traffic To Your Business. Okay you are now in business and need traffic or you have been in business for awhile and need traffic. With today’s technology such as our smart phones, if you do not have a presence on the Internet, you are losing business to your competitors. Why? Because they are utilizing this strategy to help drive traffic and buyers.

1_-_Book_-_Google_MattersPeople now days are going to Google Search to find a solution to their wants or needs. So does it not make good sense to be in front of what they are searching for? Answer! definitely yes, if you are serious about making a profit with your business.

So how do you get on Google’s first page? That ranking requires some knowledge and application of that knowledge. However it is not that complicated, if you are consistent with positioning your business on that first page.

Basically, Google doesn’t believe that you exist. On the off chance that Google doesn’t believe you, you’re not going to rank on first page SERPs. You’ll be lost in the midst of a huge number of others who’re attempting to work their way to the top. In this way, the main genuine directing standard of SEO is trust. When you have Google’s trust, you’ll reliably rank profoundly. When you do not have its trust, you’ll be lost in a wretched ocean of low-positioning site pages. What’s more, nobody needs that.

1 - Book SEO - Siesta Key Florida Artist - PAINT REVISEDFrom its earliest days, Google’s core search algorithm offered the most relevant and most organic search results quickly and accurately on a  simple site with an iconic logo that has now become synonymous with the search giant’s business. Searching amidst the world’s vast data, Google cleverly cataloged and categorized pages using its PageRank formula,  which assessed the quantity and power of links to any given web page.

Have you at any point thought about how you could get on the main page of the web search tools like Google, Bing, and Yahoo? It doesn’t make a difference what sort of business you are involved with. On the web or a brick and mortar business. The end goal for you is to remain in business, and with that said you require TRAFFIC and BUYERS. The condition for progress has an exceptionally straight forward equation: TRAFFIC + CONVERSIONS = SUCCESS. Period!

Well after a few years of trial and error I have figured out how to position myself on Google’s Page #1 driving hundreds of customers to my website or market events to purchase my oil paintings. I have collectors throughout the US, Canada, the UK, Germany and Switzerland. As the Siesta Key Farmers Market manager I have also applied the same strategies to rank many of our vendors.

SKFM_-_Jeanne_HeereI made a decision recently to share how I accomplish my presence on the Internet by writing a book titled: “How To Get Page #1 In Search Engines” The book is now available on Amazon as a Kindle eBook at $3.99,  a paperback book at $12.99 and an audible book will soon be released on Amazon. You can go to http://www.Amazon.com and in the search window type in my name, Lloyd Dobson. Or click this link http://bit.ly/DobsonPaperbackBook

I was surprised when a friend at college said to me, “I envy you. As an artist you see beauty in everything”. Until then I had not realized that we don’t all see the same thing and that my talent was not just a propensity to create but also a unique way of appreciating what I saw.

It is not just the view, scenery or objects that matter but how, as an artist I am able to perceive and interpret them. I see things that are uplifting and inspiring to me and I capture my vision in my paintings from the subjects I feel a deep connection with.

My paintings shine a spotlight on the beauty of God’s palette that I see and I am always pushing myself to hone and evolve my artistic skills to create art that is fresh, original and a genuine expression of my personal view and connection with my beautiful surroundings.

You can find me and my paintings every Sunday from 8am to 1pm at the Siesta Key Farmers Market in the Village at 5104 Ocean Blvd. Siesta Key, Florida. Come by and say hello. My paintings are shipped FREE to the lower US 48 and Canada.
