What do you do when you can’t remember the hours of your favorite grocery store? What about when you need to find a cup of coffee near you? What about when your drain is clogged in the middle of the night, and you need emergency plumbing service? You Google it! Small businesses rely on search engines to generate leads and get the attention of interested consumers, so it makes sense that a primary concern of many of our customers is search engine optimization. If you’re ready to get your website found on Google, here are some of the best ways to make it happen.
Have a Website
Okay, don’t roll your eyes. Having a website is the first step to getting search engine attention. You can’t put a doormat out unless you have a door to open, so make sure that your website is ready to go before you worry about directing customer attention. Once you have a website, it will be submitted to Google. While Google would eventually find your site anyways, this gives the search engine a heads up that you exist.
Put Your Links Out There
Next, you need to distribute links to your website in a number of non-spammy places. Having your URL in the biography of your business on every social media platform is a good place to start. You can also submit links to your website to online directories for your industry. The more quality places that you can get your link posted, the more times search engines will take note of its existence.
Use the Right Keywords
Keywords that are relevant to both your business and your target audience should be distributed throughout the content on your website. At 49dollarsites.com, our copywriters who know how to write copy that your visitors and search engines can read. For example, if you are a plumber and want to market to customers who need emergency service, some of the keywords used for your website could include:
- 24/7 emergency plumber
- Emergency plumbing services
- Emergency plumbing services in California
The right mix will help you to show up earlier in search results and get your website found on Google.
Pay Attention to Meta Tags
If you’re like most people, you’re currently contemplating what on earth a “meta tag” could be. Thankfully, that’s why you pay us to get your website found on Google and not yourself. Meta titles and descriptions are what show up in Google that a visitor chooses to click on. The meta description doesn’t show up on your website itself. Instead, these brief blurbs are what entices searchers to become website visitors.
