Daily SEO copywriting candy: March 2, 2009

overcome seo challengesWelcome to a bright and sunny Monday! At least, it’s bright and sunny here in Canada — though it was a bone-chilling -27 degrees Celsius this morning. Will spring ever come? It can be so very hard for us this time of year as we anxiously await just a hint of warmer weather, a tiny patch of green grass, one strong ray of sunshine. By March, we’re all so sun-starved that we’re starting to look like the “people under the stairs.”

But on a more positive note, these are challenges we face every year, and it makes us that much more appreciative when the season changes at long last. This gets me thinking about challenges, looking on the bright side, and overcoming obstacles on a day-to-day basis. So today’s SEO copywriting candy is about just that–overcoming SEO challenges. Enjoy!
