Football is the ballet of the masses.

are soccer slaves.
Well, if this is slavery,
give me a life sentence.

highest goalscorer for England and Manchester United)
In his life,
a man can change wives,
political parties or religions
but he cannot change
his favourite soccer team.

at most, tens.
Intellectuals’ ideological riots
sometimes kill millions.

John Jay McCarthy

paid their shillings
to watch twenty-two hirelings
kick a ball
is merely to say

is so much paper and ink.

the game lasts ninety minutes,

There is always a reason for a product not selling well. There may be no real need for it, no money within your currently targeted audience, no desire to have the product, or simply no trust in your services.

SEO Quote - Demand Creation: Before setting out to sell, ensure you have a good sense of what you’re aiming to achieve - Ryan StarrImage: Bruce Rolff (Shutterstock)

Before abandoning products that are not selling well, it is advisable to try increasing demand for them. Move the masses to buy your product or service!

Read what other professional bloggers and website owners say about demand creation

You may have designed an exceptionally creative website,
written compelling content,
or developed a useful Web application.
But if your work cannot be located
by your target audience, it’s all for naught.
After all, we can’t appreciate what we can’t find.

5 Defining Elements for Creating Demand for Your Products and Services
Most people who hear about a product remain fence-sitters,
unwilling to try or buy until a trigger moves them to act.
Some great products failed to take off
because their creators didn’t figure out
how to overcome consumer inertia.
Great demand creators constantly
search for the right triggers,
always experimenting until they get a response.

Adrian Slywotzky
The six Secrets of Demand Creation

Many products fail to connect with customers on an emotional level. Newly developed products, which are not yet established household names, struggle to gain recognition. Customers may not realise the benefits from, or understand the necessity of, possessing them.

The success of a page should be measured by one criteria:
Does the visitor do what you want them to do?

Link Building and Back Links – What professional SEO Experts say https://www.soccerwidow.com/enlightenment/quotes-quotations/website-quotes/link-building-back-links-seo-experts/ https://www.soccerwidow.com/enlightenment/quotes-quotations/website-quotes/link-building-back-links-seo-experts/#respond Thu, 15 Aug 2013 15:49:49 +0000 https://www.soccerwidow.com/?p=3263 more »]]>

Do you feel uneasy at the thought of having to “build links”? If you do, your tactical approach to link building may need re-adjusting.

SEO Quote - Link Building: Websites dont link to other websites. People point to other peoples work - Lyndon AntcliffImage: Shutterstock

Try to think about building links as a way of connecting to ‘colleagues’ working within the same industry. This mindset will serve you far better than just spamming blogs for links; the effects will be longer lasting, far more genuine, and ultimately fruitful.

Read what leading SEO experts and professionals say about back-linking…

Don’t build links. Build relationships.
Neil Patel
The advanced guide to Link Building
(co-founder of Crazy Egg and KISSmetrics)
If I added up all of the referrals from domains
that sent less than 4 people a week to my site,
together they would be my fourth largest source of traffic.

Wendy Piersall
The Ultimate Guide to Getting Lots of Link Love
I think many people underrate the value
of brand building in terms of link acquisition.
When you become part of the casual conversation
people will link to you out of simple convenience
because they remember your name and don’t have to go
searching for someone else’s name.

Michael Martinez
Positive, Forward-looking Methods of Acquiring Links
(Building and promoting websites since 1996)
If you’re trying to build links
through blog comments you’re probably doing it wrong.
I would get back to domain relevance
over individual page relevance…
Your energy would be a lot better spent
creating relationships with other bloggers.

Dave Snyder
Long Term Link Building: What’s The Best Strategy?

To succeed in the world of SEO, it is crucial to understand that search algorithms are an opportunity to flourish – but this can only be achieved through ethical search engine optimisation practices, and certainly not by resorting to mediocre back-linking strategies.

Always remember that Google engineers work hard to remove poor content and inadequate reader experience from their top searches.

Websites don’t link to other websites.
People point to other people’s work.

Lyndon Antcliff – cornwallseo.com
There’s been so much fear pushed around the web
about reciprocal link exchanges and link trading programs
that the message has been muddled up
into the completely nonsensical
“never link to someone who links to you”.
To my mind, that’s a touch of lunacy.

Rand Fishkin
5 Common Pieces of SEO Advice I Disagree With
A web page without links is like an uncharted island.
It’s sitting there, right in the middle of the ocean,
but most people don’t know it’s there.
The island could be littered with diamonds.
The plant that grows there
might heal every disease known to humans.
None of that matters if no one knows
the island is there.
