I would like to type our company name into the google search and see a link to our website.  How can I move our website further up the google search?

Hello,

First I would make sure you have indexed your site with search engines. This will help to get you started with search engine results. You may also want to get some information on paid SEO which helps boost your rankings quicker. If you are interested in a free consultation I can set up a call for a SEO agent to reach out and discuss possible options. What would be a good time to reach out? 

Here is some information on indexing your site. 

Here is the article on Google analytics

Once you get your site indexed by following the great advice above from Michelle C the real work begins.

I've used desktop sitebuilder and sitebuilder plus for close to 20 years but don't claim to be an SEO expert. Any experience with SEO has come from years of experience, hundreds of mistakes and some luck.

Please understand that these are not directions. They are simply things I have done that have worked for me. My website built using sitebuilder plus ranks at the top of organic search results for most keywords and search phrases that pertain to my local services offered website.

If it's a new domain or an older domain with a different subject that's new it may take some time to start receiving traffic from search engines. Search engines are sort of like cats. They like basic stability. So don't panic if it takes a few weeks to a month or more before you start receiving SE traffic on a regular basis after your site is indexed. And visit your competitors sites as well especially if they're ranking well in the SE's. DON"T TRY TO STEAL THEIR STUFF/COPY/IMAGES. Search engines aren't stupid and you'll get caught and penalized. Better people than us have tried and they always get caught. But there's nothing wrong with checking their site out for ideas.

If possible use multiple paragraphs separated by a space/enter key hit. Follow basic grammar rules for your paragraphs...Google does. If possible have a title/larger font at the top of each paragraph on the index page. At the end of the paragraph you could place a link to the corresponding page. If possible use separate text boxes for each paragraph.

Though they're not as pretty, SE's like text links. Especially if they convey what the link is about. If you use buttons/images/borders for linking use the alt text function describing what the link is for.

It's important to use copy/text in the body of your web pages to convey your services. If you have a dog walking service in Atlanta it's best to use phrases like dog walking service in atlanta, a service for walking the dog in atlanta, atlanta dog walking service, etc. I know it seems a bit redundant but if you use a phrase in each paragraph on the page that pertains to the business it will help. Also try to work "near you" into the copy if you offer a local service. Be sure to mention that besides walking dogs you would also dog sit, pet sit, dog wash, play with dog, etc. These other individual services would be different paragraphs.

You should also make use of the alt text box to describe any images. The search engines will like it and you'll also be complying with the ADA guidelines.

Good luck.
