Just Google It!

How many times have you had someone tell you that, just Google it? It’s become a very common catch phrase when trying to find something on the web. But did you know there is a method to that madness? Ever wonder how is it if I search for “bakery in dallas” that it just happens to find a bakery that’s close to where I’m at? Well believe it or not, it’s a bit of science and luck. When you have a business in a city filled with a million other business like yours, you want to be sure you stand out. But that’s going to take some work and an investment on your part. Just having a website isn’t going to do it. Here are just a few things you’ll need:
  • Proper title tags and meta descriptions on your web site pages
  • At minimum, ALT tags on all your images
  • Good, rich copy that is relevent to your site / business
  • You have to have the proper keywords embeded in your content in order for it to work.
  • You also have to do things like claiming your Google Places for your business.
  • And more
That’s just to touch on a few things that will be important. But with the right team in place, I can help you handle all that and get you in the direction you need to be going. If you have questions or interested in learning more about optimization for your web site, send me a message and we can talk about your options. In a later post, I discuss these bullet point items in detail.
