    The only way to get search engine exposure is to do SEO and be patient, or to do PPC advertising. But otherwise you cannot buy rankings in the search engines.

    Have you tried using adwords on websites rather than search results?

    I like the idea of adwords on websites. You can target sites that have people looking for what you offer.

    I always had better results only going with AdWords Search Engines. The site content never went well. :/ Not sure why.

    Yeah, that'll pay the rent. :-)~

    And while he or she is doing that, thousands more are doing the same thing.

    Not everyone can fit on the first couple of pages of a search. And even if one is lucky to land on those pages, it brings in very little $.

    Willard, if your site isn't converting, could it be the look of the site or the product itself?

    Advertising, and, word of mouth are, of course the answers. Mainly advertising. Of course. You just have to work at it to make it work for you, just like everyone else has had to do.
