While it's true that just about anybody can put up a Web site nowadays not everyone knows how to get people to visit their site. Good or excellent placement in search engines isn't the only thing that determines how many visitors a Web site gets, but it's certainly one of the most important components.

That's where Search Engine Optimization comes in, the art of making Web pages search engine friendly so they have high rankings in search engine result pages. Learn more about SEO with these Search Engine Optimization articles.

Pros: You should be able to work remotely with clients for the most part. There is/will be a growing demand for Search Engine Optimization Services by small businesses as more people realize the importance of Search Engine Optimization but don't have the time or expertise to do it themselves.

Cons: Competition in this area is fierce. It may be difficult to find/establish a clientele if you're a "one person shop".

What You Need to Get Started With This Home Based Business Idea:

  • The expertise to provide the service.
  • A portfolio of Web sites and results that you can show potential clients; start with your own Web site and those of friends to get going.
