Two Ways To Move Your Website Up

I can’t stress how important links from other relevant websites are to your website’s standing with Google.
Every link  from another place on the web is seen as an independent ‘vote’ for your website.
The more votes you get, the more Google likes you.
Here are TWO very simple ways to get valuable links to your website.
1.     
  JOIN GOOGLE PLACES
In April 2010, the world of local business changed.

That's when Google made  'Local' intentions clear with the release of 'Google Places'. Google Places is where you can enter the details of your business and help to hardwire your website to Google, and gain a few brownie points from them (that's a 'good' thing)

With Google Places you will also have a better chance of showing up in the Search Results Pages when a searcher is looking for a specific service or product in a specific area, and you will also start to appear in Google Maps which will show your business as a 'pin' on a local map

50 million businesses have created their Google Places profiles. If you haven’t yet, you're behind.

Head over there (link below) and add your business, and make sure you complete all the sections to get a profile completion percentage of 100%.  Yes I know it's a pain, but Google will favour those with 100%.

If you service areas outside of your immediate business address, make sure you list those too.

You'll need a Google account. If you don't have a Google account yet, then sign up for one. Follow this link, it’s FREE.

CLAIM YOUR GOOGLE PLACE

If you need any help with this, give me a call. I don't charge for chatting.

2.       JOIN AS MANY FREE DIRECTORIES AS YOU CAN
Go right now to Google and search for ‘Local Free Directories’.  Instantly you’ll see approximately 40 to 100 places you can register your business for FREE. Each one will probably ask you to add your websites address to your business listing, and THAT is a link back to your website.

Now, some of these directories MAY call you up and attempt to sell you premium advertising space, but you don’t have to buy at all of course.
If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me  at

As I said, you can do all of this yourself just by sitting down for a few hours and plugging away at it. If you don’t have the time or inclination, but you still want to build links this way, you can contact us. We'll arrange a short consultation  with you and put together a plan to build links to your website while you get on with running your business.
