Not sure how to word this. Basically I have a new website and am trying to get increased traffic to help appear higher in Google searches. It strikes me there are probably others in the same boat, so I wondered if we could all help each other in some way by searching for and visiting each other's websites, maybe also give constructive advice?
Sorry if this is deemed as marketing or inappropriate. If so let me know and I'll request mn remove the thread.
That's great thanks. I'll pm the details to you, pm me yours and I'll have a look. Just to clarify, no need to look at anything on the site, not trying to drum up sales or anything, just trying to get Google to acknowledge me!
It wasn't so much a link between websites I was thinking about as just people visiting the site and googling it.
I've read hundreds of articles on seo but as I'm using an all in website design thing online a lot of it means nothing to me sadly. I don't have the funds to pay someone to set up the website for me so am just doing the best I can. Any tips welcome though!
OP sadly visits won't really have an effect either. I'd also worry about sending to directories as there's quite a lot of recent evidence to suggest that Google is actively trying to fight this 'loophole'.
I specialise in DIY websites though, and most of my clients are just like you. I've written a couple of articles on SEO for people who have absolutely no idea what SEO is, if you're interested PM me and I'll send links ;)
Our website is maintained by the company who developed it for us. They use algorithms of some sort to keep the Google rating high. It's a service we pay for as a package of other stuff but we find it's worth it and we are not a large business by any means.
