The Web Marketing Checklist: 37 Ways to Promote Your Website

Just came upon another excellent article about website marketing that I want to share – although this article provides the blue print for the work we do for FindMyLocalBiz clients we feel reading this information will enable a deeper understanding of how complex and detailed website marketing truly is.

We trust you’ll take the time to read through  The Web Marketing Checklist: 37 Ways to Promote Your Website by Dr. Ralph F. Wilson, and let us know how this helps you and your business grow.

How To Submit Your Business Site to Google, Yahoo & Bing for Indexing

OK, as a business owner you’ve got your site up and running, maybe you’ve just added a new page or product info. Now all you have to do is wait for customers to find you in online searches. Well unfortunately it isn’t that simple. Kevin Costner in Field Of Dreams was wrong,  just because you build it does not mean they’ll come.

Like everything else in this life, if you want it you’ll have to work for it. The good news is that submission of your site to the major search engines is not too difficult.

Simply put for the search engines to be able to include your site in their search engine results pages (SERPS)they have to know you’re there.  Here are the easy steps you need to do to get your site indexed, just follow the links and the step-by-step instructions they provide:

Google = http://www.google.com/addurl/?continue=/addurl

Yahoo = https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/mysites

Bing =  http://www.bing.com/webmaster/SubmitSitePage.aspx

 

It can take a few hours or even a few days for your site to be indexed but it will happen and eventually you’ll see your page rank go up and your traffic increase.

 

Try these tactics and let us know how it worked out for you.

The three components to a successful SEO campaign.

No two SEO experts will agree on every detail, and no two client’s ever need exactly the same things for their website. At www.Findmylocalbiz.com, most clients want to do more business online, and when we take the time to first understand their web goals, then explain the SEO & SEM strategies and plans, they’ll afford us the time and attention to do the job. And results which are never instantaneous first start with increased traffic, better rankings and then ultimately conversions. We find it takes all three components to deliver a successful SEO campaign.

Keep A’goin!

If you’re old enough to remember Henry Gibson on TV’s Laugh-In, then you’ll remember his famous poetry segments called “Keep A’Goin”. In those Henry talked about the daily life challenges tossed his way and how he was determined to keep a’goin to overcome the challenges.

Owning and running a business is often like that. One week you may feel as if the world is against you and nothing is going right, and then suddenly things turn your way.

This past week we experienced the true business value of employing the Keep A’Goin philosophy. During the past months we had many sales meetings, new business presentations and even planned on a revised business model. Things were moving but very slowly. Some days we were getting discouraged, and then… three of those we had previously spoken with called to sign up for our Intent marketing services. Best of all two of these have also given us referrals for new assignments. How great is that!

So remember that during those inevitable down periods, it is wise to always Keep A’Goin. The fact that we keep on going through hard times eventually paid off and will for you, too.
