You've got this great website, but there it is stuck on Page 12 of Google's natural search results and it doesn't seem to be moving anywhere! Time to get your finger out and make that website work for you!
It's no use putting your head in the sand you know – if you don't put the effort into marketing your website you'll stay as you are or slide down those Google ranks. Sorry to be brutal! Just having a great looking website sat on the Internet will achieve very little. You need to remember that your potential customers are fickle creatures. Unless your website is listed on Page 1 or 2 of Google you might as well not be there at all.
So how do you get your website up there in the search results right in front of your customers eyes?
There are quite a few ways to help you on your way up those tracks. Remember though, the journey isn't an overnight one! You can expect to wait quite a few months to see the fruits of your labours. Here are 2 top tips…
Get Great Website Content:
Is your website content relevant? Does it clearly inform customers of who you are and what products/services you specialise in? Does it contain 'search phrases' that customers are using to search for the same products and services that you offer? Is it kept up to date with the latest news?
Create In-bound Links:
In-bound what? You can give your website real credibility by having other websites linking back to yours. There are quite a few ways to do this – through Link Directories, Article Directories etc.. Getting a nice big bunch of external links to your website is a sure way of making Google smile at you.
