Ensure you are getting noticed on Google

Today, when most people go looking for information, they do it on the Google search engine in one form or another and it is clear to even the most casual observer that Google is a powerful advertising tool as well. In the course of a given day, people perform searches for research purposes, educational purposes, and for commercial purposes; no matter what goods or services you provide, you will realize that having a high listing on Google is extremely important.

If you’re looking to get noticed on Google, there are a number of things that you can do. The first thing to do is to figure out what your standing already is. This will take some research on your part, so settle in for a few hours in front of the computer. Type a few searches into Google to see how long it takes to find your site. If your site is not appearing on the first few pages, let alone the top, you need to do some work! Then, use the free Google Analytics tool to figure out how people are getting to your page and why. This can prove enlightening and help you figure out what your marketing is actually doing.

When you are taking a look at Google search rankings, keep in mind that there needs to be something on your site for Google to find. Make sure that your site has a great deal of content as well as plenty of relevant and related information. When you are working with keyword searches, don’t just think about your industry; think about industries that are related and connected to yours. Mention them and link to them, and before you know it, you’ll be regarded as something of an expert on the subject. Don’t be afraid to share your information!

The most important thing to do regarding getting noticed on Google is provide good information. As was discussed above, Google search results are ranked based on relevancy. The repetition of the search terms are not the only things that are used to rank the results; your use of other related key words can cause your rating to go higher as well. Relevancy is the best way to bring people to your site in terms of Google search results, and it tends to work to your advantage in other ways as well.

You’ll find that many specialists in the field of search engine optimisation will state that they only increase traffic through ethical means. Essentially, what this means is that they ensure that people are not “tricked” into coming to your site. While bringing people to your site through keyword stuffing and misleading copy might get people to your website in the very short term, it will definitely not result in more customers (and will probably end in you being banned from the search engines). Make sure that the content that you post is informative and relevant and you will have a better chance of turning casual browsers into dedicated customers.
