Search Engine Optimization can be very complexe for a neophyte, which is why companies often employ professional specialized in SEO. But a manager still has to be aware of the basics of SEO.

- Don't put too many links on each webpage

- Try to think about the terms internet users will use to search for your site, and insert them in your pages

Concerning my own statistics, I figured out by using the blogger statistics page that my blog "Six Months in SoCal" as been visited 189 times exactly, which I think is poor compared to the time I have been keeping it updated.
Most of the pageviews come from the United States, but I also have several of them coming from France, which is probably due to my french friends following me on my twitter account. It also seems that most of the traffic comes from the links from the blogs of my classmates.
On the following graphs, we notice that the stats about internet browsers are equally shared between Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari:

Concerning my facebook account, I currently have 536 friends. I created my account in 2008, but I think I got in contact with most of my friends since 2009.

As for my twitter account, I created it approximately one month ago and I now have 14 followers. I follow 16 twitter account and have posted about 15 tweets since I subscribed to twitter.
