Getting to the top of Google

The question we get asked more than any other is "How do I get to the top of Google?". The answer is "With skill and intelligence". It takes time and effort and there is no guarantee you will get the top spot. However, you can almost certainly improve your current Google positioning.

Is my website optimised for Google??

How people look at a web site and how Google views it are two different things. The more text you have on the website, the better. There are also a few other factors like the title and the description of the web page. Websites produced by us are designed to help you get optimised for Google, so that you will have a strong foundation for the next stage.

What is your market?

Knowing your market and the type of words that people type in to find your business is just the first step on the road to success. You need to know what people are typing to find your website and to think about your target market. We have tools which can assist with this process and allow you to gauge words and phrases that are likely to be successful in attracting customers.

Which words are the best?

This is where good information is essential, because the trick is getting to the top with ordinary, everyday phrases that people use when looking for businesses like yours. Remember that  being in the first ten results puts you on the first page. Try clicking on the links below:

How long does this take?

The process can vary considerably but you should be looking at a time-scale of months rather than days. Google often takes a week or so to notice changes on a website, so it can take quite a while to see how effective a set of changes were. Further adjustments may be necessary entailing another delay whilst Google catches up again.

Will I keep my position?

Maybe. Google has control of the software that decides the page rankings and occasionally they change it and a top ranked page drops to the bottom. The only solution to prevent this is to have good ,relevant content and to continually assess and monitor your website.
