Why can’t we be found in Google?
As you’d expect, this is the most popular question from website owners we speak to! I suppose the first question in reply would be “does your website deserve to be Number 1?” If your answer is “yes”, eg your content is much more worthy than your competitors, then we have a chance to make it Number 1. Often you will find poor quality websites commanding high positions, this is short lived as Google will always find spammy websites eventually and banish them into cyberspace.
There are many factors which determine your search ranking and most of it is common sense – Making your website search engine friendly; Providing good relevant content; Keeping your content up-to-date; Being linked from other worthy website; Actually mentioning your keywords in your text and so on.
For a website to reach high rankings in the major search engines – Google, Bing and Yahoo! – it needs to be optimised in order to squeeze every little bit of advantage you can get from it.
When a search engine adds your website to its database, it takes into account your website content, popularity as well as selected information within the code that makes up your web pages.
Optimising your website includes many techniques including optimising page titles, descriptions, keywords and image alt tags to ensure that relevant information is supplied and displayed on your search engine listings.
These techniques are collectively known as Search Engine Optimisation or SEO.
Optimise your website for improved results
Better optimisation brings more potential customers to you, it’s that simple!
If you want people to find your business on the web, you need to achieve good rankings on Google and the major search engines.
Search Engines send out their ‘spiders’ or ‘crawlers’ which look right across the web, collecting information on all the websites which they find. This information is stored in the search engines’ database and forms the core search results that are shown when a visitor to the search engine types in a search request.
These search results are shown in order, based on relevance, so the websites / pages that are most relevant to the search term are shown first. It is therefore extremely important that you appear as close to the top as possible for the types of search terms that your potential customers would be putting in, otherwise they just won’t find you.
