E-commerce success remains frustratingly elusive for many even as trends clearly show that the Internet is a medium that will continue to have a huge impact across the board on the entire business landscape. This impact will not even spare totally offline companies, as they too will need to adjust to the rapidly changing offline business environment that has been affected by developments online. So while everybody knows that they will have to pay a lot of attention to the net, many failed web entrepreneurs can’t quite put their fingers on what they did wrong, or where exactly the problem was. So what is the most overlooked hurdle to success?
Websites get a vast majority of their new visits through search engines. Most net surfers will go straight to their favorite search engine and then use keywords to look for the information that they are looking for. In this way, they make use of the internet’s advantage of having virtually unlimited information and a wide choice of service providers in virtually any discipline one can think of, plus thousands of others one will never think of. Already a clear distinction has emerged between sites than bother themselves with search engine optimization (SEO) and those that do not.
The World Wide Web is a huge place and so if keywords in a search engine will not find you, it means that hardly anybody will be able to find your expensive, state-of-the-art website. Life is now being made easier by some good hosting companies. These companies have realized that search engines are a key to success and have therefore included search engine optimization services into the range of products they offer as web-hosting providers.

When a customer is in a store then the merchant has access to the credit card and can process it through a “terminal” right next to the cash register. In the online world that is not possible though. In the online world, we have “virtual terminals” which is where users give all their personal information and credit card information. This information is used to verify that this is really the owner of the card. If the information the customer gave matches what the credit card company has on record then the sale will go through.
