Google's recent announcement about starting to use Mobile Optimisation as a ranking factor in their search algorithm from April 21st has got a lot of people worried. Some unscrupulous web design agencies are also contacting companies saying that April 21st is some kind of deadline where non-mobile-friendly sites will be penalised or rejected altogether.

So what's the truth? Should you be worried?

Google AdWords is a very popular way to advertise your website. But with all of the different settings and options, and with all of the analytical data that you're given, how do you make sure it works for you and doesn't just become a black hole for money.

There are an endless series of factors which can affect how much an website will cost when it comes to selling online. An article like this can't possibly do the subject justice.

But there are a few basic principles which you should address in your budgeting regardless of your functional requirements.

There are lots of free resources on the internet which are entirely funded through advertising. Online advertising is big business!

So, how can you get a piece of the action?

The title of this article is possibly misleading, because the 3 methods I'll be discussing aren't "cheats" in the sense that they're dishonest, or "black hat SEO". They are cheats because they are not the normal ways that you tend to try to get a first page ranking.

Let me just be clear, these are all legitimate techniques, recommended by Google.
