Search engines love SEO websites. You will get lot of traffic there. All you need to do ~ get lot of incoming links as you can. Personally, I don’t blog purposely for search engine. There are some who do so in order to make money online. And it is proven that it work. I would like to have more direct traffic. Why? This mean that your blog is informative and people are willing to visit again. And indirectly, it will bring more incoming links too. Finally, I always keep this in mind.

Write good content, do proper marketing == money money traffic traffic come. 😀
