Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft said “Content is King” and that is true in the digital world. Billions of contents are being developed and published in the internet. Being an internet entrepreneur if you don’t understand this, it’s hard to sustain. I agree with what Mr. Bill Gate said but what if people are unable to find your great content that you have written? It is the biggest problem for most of us. I went through many blogs those are developed by so called Internet Marketing Guru’s, found the same silly mistake, none of their contents are fully SEO Optimized. I am not calling myself, a Guru, whatever I know and implement, only I share those information’s here. Being an internet entrepreneur, you should build the skill to Write Search Engine Optimized Articles or Contents for your business.

I believe most of the people know how to write the url’s for their articles. I do see very few websites with non-opimitzed url. Still let me tell you why it’s most important to have proper optimized url’s.
As you already know that Google first looks for the optimized title and based on the optimised title, it checks how the article url’s organized.
