There are more than a billion sites on the web. Search engine optimization doesn't mean being one of the top 500 websites in the world. It means placing high on an Internet search when people look for you or your goods and services.

I use and recommend email and several other features of Google's G Suite > email, online storage, calender, file sharing, video conferencing and more. $5 per user per month is well worth it!
