Now your website is live. A designer you found online made the site. The site looks very sharp. Now 6 Months have passed and nothing has happened. New customers and sales were supposed to be generated by now. Why haven't sales increased? Why doesn't your site have any exposure?
If your site does not show up on Google, that could explain your poor results. Potential customers need to be able to find your site in Google when they are searching for the product or service you provide. What makes Google so important? Of all the search engines available to us, Google is the most popular. If your site does not show up on Google, a lot of potential exposure is being lost. You must make it a point to get listed in Google.
Anybody can have their site indexed by Google. A website owner has many options to getting his site added to Google's index. Three simple ways to get indexed are: Google url submission, get a website that shows up in Google's search results to link to your site, or submit a relevant article which you have written to article directories
The first and least desirable method is to use Google's add url page to submit your website. Your site will be added to the que of sites waiting to get added, which may or may not end up happening. Google likes to find your site by following a link from a site already in their index.
Another method is to get a link to your website from a site or webpage already indexed. Once Google re-crawls that site, they will follow the link to your site and add it if they like what they find. The speed of this method is directly related to how high the page rank of the site is - the higher the page rank, the more frequently Google will revisit the site and follow the link to your site.
Article writing is an effective method to get added to Google's index. Articles have a resource box where the author's information (and a link to your site) is entered. Google loves article directories. Once your article (and your backlink) get added to the article directory website, it won't be long before Google finds the link and follows it.
These 3 methods are simple and easy to implement. Once your site gets listed in Google search results, site optimization will be necessary in order to have the website show up as as high in the search results as possible. It is absolutely essential to show up in Google search results. Your website's effectiveness depends on it.
