One of the newer aspects of internet marketing is social media optimization and marketing. This is utilizing websites such as twitter, facebook, squidoo, blogger, myspace, and others within your marketing campaign. SEO (search engine optimization) has been and will be the foundation of most internet marketing campaigns. When you SEO a website what you do is make it easily indexed and take certain steps so it ranks well for certain keywords. The last topic, but certainly not the least is branding. The simple definition of branding is when you as a webmaster take the title of your presence or your own name and make it a brand that everyone knows. You work diligently to associate your name or website with your niche so when someone thinks of the niche they think of you.
