Q. I’ve got a website but I’m not appearing anywhere on Google, why?
A. Just because you have a website doesn’t mean you’ll appear on the 1st Page of Google, Google has a set of very specific rules (algorithm) which dictates whether or not your website will appear on the first page of Google – if your website isn’t built in the right way then you won’t appear – ever!
Q. I run a local business covering a 10 – 15 mile radius, surely people aren’t looking for local businesses like me online?
A. 70 % of all searches on Google are for Local Businesses, so nowadays this is the main way that SME’s get the majority of their new enquiries
Q. I used to appear on the first page of Google, but I don’t anymore – why is that?
A. Google constantly changes and updates its rules on which companies appear in the main search results as its goal is to make sure that all the results it delivers are relevant to the person searching, so probably whoever built your website hasn’t kept your website updated with the latest best practice
Q. Why does my website looks awful on my mobile?
A. When your website is built it also needs to be created in a certain way so that it works across ALL types of mobile devices – this is now more important than ever as 80% of searches start on a mobile phone and if your website isn’t built in way which is fully responsive – then customers will click off your website on to your competition as your website isn’t user friendly but more importantly it won’t appear on Google!
