We get a lot of questions from clients and non-clients, so today, I’m answering one of the most common.
Question: Why Can’t I Find My Home Care Website on the First Page of Google?
For Everyone: If you website is brand new…. It can take up to 6 months to see movement for a new website. (Up to a year if you aren’t supplying new fresh content each week)
- For Clients: What level program are you in? Our lowest level program only provides 2 blog posts per month. That’s never enough for the Google Monster. She wants to see content every week, or even multiple times per week!
- For Non-Clients: Are you contributing content that is unique and not re-furbished or copied from some other website?? Have you search engine optimized your website?
Recommendations for Quicker Movement:
For Clients: Send in content- company news, every week. Don’t have news? Read these two blog posts for ideas.
For Non-Clients: Add search engine optimized content to your website in the form of blog posts every week. Make sure your content is also showing up on FB LI Tw and Pi.
2. No time? Invest in a program that provides more blog posting, more SEO and more reporting so that you can get an accurate picture of what’s really happening with your website.
You have a brand new website in a moderately to EXTREMELY competitive market. Around you, there are dozens of competitors and directory sites that have been in business for many years. They have a solid presence on Google already. In order for you to make headway, you must contribute. Budget is always a concern, time is always a concern. Do your best to balance budget with time, either by contributing more, or paying for upgraded services. I know it’s tough, but with some patience and work, you will get there!
