The myriad ways that businesses are leveraging SharePoint clearly demonstrate that in today's Web 2.o world, the Web site is no longer simply online "Brochure-ware." Indeed, SharePoint-built corporate Web sites act as virtual stores, online communities and portal destinations where users visit, buy and interact. Using SharePoint, it's easy to create wikis, blogs, and portals to enable groups to collaborate and personalize content based on the user's profile and needs. In addition to sharing and managing content, SharePoint allows businesses to deploy search functionality as well as analyze important corporate data. It is a little known fact that SharePoint is also being used more and more to optimize search engine rankings.
