How Helps you build Traffic

Post content that people are searching for

High-quality content posted in classifieds that back link to your website or blog is a win for the HortHub community and most important a positive vote for your search engine rankings! If your classified ads. and business listing contain useful information, their content will attract many visitors and entice other Horthub members and non-members to link to your site. In creating a content rich call to action will get you listed higher in search engines! Write content that clearly and accurately describe the topics. Think about the words users would type to find your business in a search engine such as Google or Bing and include those words in your content. If your not a member of HortHub yet sign up !

Make sure that other sites link to yours

Links help search engine crawlers find your content! When returning results for a search, Google uses sophisticated text-matching techniques to display pages that are both important and relevant to each search. Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote by page A for page B. Votes cast by pages that are themselves "important" weigh more heavily and help to make other pages "important." So in other words relevant content that is rich in keywords that relate to the article topics will rank high in Google and other search engines and when we put links to your website or blog it will give you a vote. We encourage other HortHub Members to link back and fourth as well. Relevancy is one major key factor in Google Algorithms, hence the reason we created for the Horticulture Community to share and prosper in the the improvement of individuals SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Are you lost... Don't worry! It is easier than it sounds!

Things to avoid

Don't fill your content with lists of keywords, attempt to "cloak" pages, or put up "crawler only" pages. If your content contain pages, links, or text that you don't intend visitors to see, Google considers those links and pages deceptive and may ignore your writings. In other words just write content as if you were talking to a gardening friend. 

Don't be duked by SEO companies! Some companies claim to "guarantee" high ranking for your site in Google's search results. While legitimate consulting firms can improve your site's flow and content, others employ deceptive tactics in an attempt to fool search engines. Be careful; if your domain is affiliated with one of these deceptive services, it could be banned from Googles index.

Lets Have Fun

Speaking to all business owners and managers involved in the Horticuluture Industry. As the owner of and Kigi I like to think we have gained some real world experience both online and in the local retail/wholesale sector. In order for your business to be taken serious by the major search engines (No matter what size your company is) you have to follow the online rules. We have outlined some important ones above for you to start using right away. In order for everyone to benefit from this online marketing strategy of and beyond, we need to work together! below I have volunteered some financial information from Kigi Nursery to help prove our point!

Case Study

I would now like to share our revenue $$$$$ success from just one Classified Ad. that ran for two years. created a single (call to action) Classified Ad. on running for 2014 and 2015. In 2014 Kigi Nursery ran an exclusive coupon code: HORTHUB20%OFF2014 that brought 104 sales with an average sale of $135.00 for a total of $14,040.00. In 2015 a similar coupon code: HORTHUB10%OFF2015 that brought in 90 sales with an average sale of $148.00 for a total of $13,320.00, yes the 20% OFF brought in more sales but the 10% OFF preserved more margin dollars.

The Big Picture! For a small $100 per year advertising expense into a HortHub membership that gets all the premium placements on You could also turn $200 into $27,360.00 in revenue! Not to mention that is just one classified (call to action) ad. creating those proven $$$$$. HortHub also helps Kigi Nursery rank organically on search engines, gives customers valuable content and is a nice Business Directory Listing. Get creative and drive some business!

If you want to see the proof. Enter Kigi Nursery into Google Search to see where the HortHub coupon ad. is ranked? Thats right, ahead of all the big directories that Kigi Nursery is also listed! Whats the difference? They are not Horticulturally related!!! Bigger is not always better!!!

Side Note

HortHub builds out all Category and Locations manually for HortHub listings, If you need a Category or Location built to suit your website or blog please contact us.

The key to Improving rank on Google and other search engines is Keyword Rich Unique Content. If you want to take your articles and post them here that would be great, just be sure to change up the wording and content a bit to not be duplicating what you already have indexed, we will take care of the linking back to your site (so it is search engine friendly) let me know if you need more categories built for your article topics.
As far as content just be sure to write legitimate content as you would read in a magazine or Wikipedia style, educate your readers without overusing keywords.
