If you’ve just heard the phrase ‘Tag and Ping’ and are scratching your head in puzzlement – this article may be worth your time. Not that Tag and Ping is some magic marketing formula that will deliver untold riches. It won’t.

It is just one more marketing tool professional online marketers are using to give their site or sites a competitive edge over their competition. It will help put your site on the Internet map and if done right, Tag and Ping will deliver plenty of very targeted traffic to your sales pages. It will boost your rankings and increase your sales.

Tag and Ping is not some new pinball game (does anyone even play pinball these days?) nor are they the names of my neighbor’s Chinese Crested puppies.  Tag and Ping is a marketing technique that is part of a phenomenon I have only recently become aware of called SEO or Search Engine Optimization.

According to Wikipedia (anyone else remember something called an “encyclopedia?”  Sigh.  Those were the days.) SEO is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in search engines via “natural” or un-paid search results.  Sounds great, right?  So how do I do that?

There are quite a few articles out there that explain how to do that better than me.  For one, click on the link posted in the quote above.  If you prefer a video explanation CLICK HERE to get to one.  Or else join me WordPress Wednesday later this week when I report on my own experience in tagging and pinging this blog and my www.paintedblacknovel.com site using information I found on the WordPresse support forum.

It will be interesting to see if tagging and pinging is as much fun as it sounds like it should be.
