Update your site often
This keeps the search engine "spiders" coming back to your site regularly. Keeping your website up-to-date is not only good for your results in the search engines but also for how your brand and business is perceived by potential and current clients. We offer web updating and support.
Consider your keywords
When updating your website, keep in mind that you always need to keep your keywords up-to-date as well. Read our article 'Where to start with 'Keywords' for SEO.
Create links to your site
In addition to the search engines that we have submitted your sites to, it is important to create as many other links to your site as possible. Search engines use the number of links to your site, to determine the popularity of your site, which in turn helps to determine how they choose to rank your site.
Some ideas for link building include:
Type the word "directory" into Google and search through the listings provided - you can often find sites that are directly relevant to your business that are free to list on.
Set up a Facebook business page, and regularly link the posts you make back to your website.
Other social media sites include:
...and there are many others - research the key ones to join for your industry!
Reminder - don't forget to make sure you put a link on your website to any of your social media accounts.
Encourage friends, family, business partners and customers to link to your website (and you can reciprocate with links to their sites)
Articles and Blogs
Another popular method of getting links to your site is to submit articles and blogs that you have written to appropriate sites.
