Many, many people published their new web sites onto the Internet, entered them into the search engines, then sat back waiting for the phone to ring. Unfortunately, many, many people found out it doesn't work that way. If it were only that easy. There wouldn't be a need for professional web developers, or Internet marketing specialists.
