The only way my site is found on Google search is by typing the site name.  I have entered keywords on many pages including the Index page of my site but it does not work.  Any of those keywords typed on Google search is not found.  I have reported this problem many times before on Homestead but I have never received an explanation that worked. After weeks and months of trying in vain I have abandoned the idea of getting found on Google.  I now report to my clients that my web provider Homestead does not offer that service.  Is it possible now to be found on Google search using some specific keywords other than the website name.  If so, how can it be done?  Thanks

This is not due to Homestead, as we host the website and put it out on the internet. This is part of your website hosting package, and the reason your site appears when you type in your domain. Making your website appear on search engines like Google is called SEO. There are tons of articles online about what SEO is, and what you can do to increase your web presence. This is something that you can do yourself, or you can have experts market your site for you. Homestead does offer SEO services, and if you are ever interested, you can call our support and we can discuss it with you. I would recommend doing a Google search for 'what is seo', and do a little research on what it would take for your website to appear when searching for certain key phrases.
