Building Trust with your site, with Google, and with your visitors

In 2013, Google is putting more emphasis on "trust" than anything else, when determining what websites to show for any given search phrase.

When you distill it all down, as a business owner, everything you do is about building trust.  Every interaction with your customer done with integrity at its core helps to build trust.

Nothing is more important to Google than Trust

This presentation will show you exactly how to demonstrate and build upon that trust at your website, and show your visitors and the search engines that you're the best choice for their needs.

      I've used Grasshopper on my own business for almost 10 years. (It used to have another name that I can't remember at the moment) but another option I found when I wanted a really low cost service was Kall8­. we've had that in use on a dropshipping site for over 5 years now and it's been great - starts at just $2 per month

    If you trust Google you might also trust the good intentions of Craig Berkman if he told you he had a great investment deal for you to consider.

      Great point Tom, and I'll bet someone could put together a presentation on "Why you shouldn't "trust Google" - ;)

    At the East Portland Chamber of Commerce, we voted to invite you all for free, rather then have low attendance. C'mon down and bring a friend too!
