Blog Post: Getting Ranked

Red Deer & Blackfalds Web Design Writes:

As the New Year starts, most (all) entrepreneurs are looking for new ways to advertise their Small Business! A lot of this comes down to your online presence, and even more pressure falls on how well your website is ranking. Below are 3 surefire ways to make sure your business is getting noticed:

  1. Blog – this idea can really range in topics, and the posts themselves don’t need to be very long. But! With a greater majority of the internet being developed using WordPress, chances are your new website is already setup to have a blog so it takes me no more time (or money) to get it going. Your commitment should be to write some blog posts pertaining to your business (let’s say about 1-2 a month, at about 350-500 words a piece) and then decide upon a posting schedule (ie. once a week, twice a week, once a month … whatever you can manage to produce consistently) and this helps Google recognize new content on your website and can get you ranked higher! Just be sure to use terms that you would like to rank for inside your article.
  2. Power Of Time – the longer your website stays online, the more opportunities that Google has to rank you as a reliable source for your given keywords. So long as your website is developed with Responsiveness in mind (which it absolutely should!), the more time your website stays online will ultimately help with SEO results. Google will go through the entire internet and index all the sites every 2-7 days. So the more times it indexes you, the better you will rank long term!
  3. Get Social – using social media by posting links to your site helps get organic traffic to your page. The more visitors you push there with your social media the better Google will index your site (as it will catalog the traffic for each site on the internet and then use that when it weighs the options for its best response to search engine terms/submissions).
