HICKORY — The Catawba Valley Community College Small Business Center will present two free seminars Sept. 30, to assist small businesses with getting found on the Internet.

The SBC will present “Secrets for Optimizing Your Search Engine Ranking” from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Catawba County Chamber of Commerce. Getting a website up and running is great, but having customers find your website on the Internet is critical.
