Today I read four articles and books I got off the web today promising a page 1 rating from1 day to 12 days. I then being in SEO must get 6 to 10 Emails to day from SEO companies with their latest EBook offer to help you get higher Google ratings. In SEO one source I used to search for the number of sites said there were 842 million websites. I am not sure if that is accurate but it does make you stop and wonder if there are so many and we all have the answer why are we all not on the 1st page.
The real key to SEO is to design a website for the customers that will look for it, use the proper keywords or words that someone not in SEO might type in the search box to find the site. SEO professionals have tools to help them find the correct words, or word’s search engines recommend.
But you need real and changing content that use those words to help search engines find you. You need a sitemap so search engines can find you, and there is no fast way to get to a first page Google ranking. Google changes their search engine algorithm constantly so one day you’re up one day your down.
And many Website Designers forget some simple tasks such as a title and description Meta tag. And yes while they may not be used to help you in search engines, this is the information displayed in the search see below:
I have seen sites without the Meta’s that barely let you know what the site does, because without these Google pulls from the text on the home page and if you start out with something like we started business in 1922 and have 50 employees now working in three states
This is what is displayed in the search, even though you are selling roof repairs you didn’t grasp the searchers attention.
So when you have your website designed make sure the little things are looked after. If you want to see how your page is seen just type your website name in Google’s search box. If it doesn’t look good if you can change it then do, or you can contact us Killerbee Marketing and Website Design to help you.
After you do the basics then go after all the social sites you can make pages and get known it ‘s the current SEO buzz word.
