So you’ve got your website made to showcase all your products or services to people… but nobody’s visiting! Why?
Search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing drive up to 80% of all website traffic that you receive (the remainder usually coming from referrals such as business cards or direct marketing such as flyers or banner advertising.) If your website can’t be found in Google, then the volume of visitors (“traffic”) that you receive is going to be pretty low.
Thankfully, there are ways to improve your website’s ranking in the search engines, and this practice is known as “SEO” which is short for “Search engine optimization”.
It’s common for business owners to simply check if they appear in Google by searching for the company name. However, this is not what a typical customer would search for! For example, if your company is called “AA Roofing” and you are a roofing company in Derby, then what is a prospective buyer likely to search in Google for? Unless they have already heard of your company, they will not search on your name – they’re likely to search for “roofing in Derby”, “Derby roofing”, “Roofing companies in Derby” and so on.

Take a moment to think about what phrases a customer would be likely to use when finding you – then search in Google to check if you’re on the first page for that term. (These phrases are known as “keywords” in SEO-speak.)
Note! Google delivers its search results based on what they call “personalized search”. This means they check your surfing history and will show you first sites that you frequently visit. So if you visit your own site frequently and then search for one of your keywords, your site may appear higher in the rankings for you than for other people who have never visited your site. For this reason, it’s important to use this special link to determine where your site ranks in Google:

VIP UK SEO Services Package – £750/month
Suggested for business with high competition, or for those who want a strong social media presence
All of the above services are included, and we will also submit press releases regarding your business, and build backlinks via our network of private web properties. In addition to this, we offer a managed Facebook and Twitter service where we will build a Facebook and Twitter profile for your business, add at least 500 fans/followers per month, and do all the work for you of keeping them updated – we will Tweet at least once a day with content or links relevant to your business, and we will update Facebook at least once a week with content designed to keep your fans engaged, such as polls, games and competitions. Of course you will also have full access to the accounts so that you can assign one of your staff to answering customer queries, posting special offers, etc.*
We see many unscrupulous SEO and web design companies persuading every type of business owner that they MUST have a Twitter or Facebook account or risk being left behind by the competition. Whilst both Facebook and Twitter can be excellent marketing tools, we really do not recommend them for every business. Business which have a strong social side such as pubs, restaurants, clubs; or those which offer bespoke services like photography, bridal makeup, interior design, etc, can greatly benefit from the power of social media and customer engagement. However, small business such as builders, joiners, plumbers, etc will find them more of a distraction to business than a useful tool.
