DID YOU KNOW THAT BEING LISTED ON SEARCH ENGINES JUST DOESN’T HAPPEN - IT TAKES A LOT OF HARD WORK AND A GREAT DEAL OF TIME - in some cases up to 6 months.
.. and BEING THERE DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU WILL ALWAYS STAY THERE
Your web site is the storefront for your products and services, but it has to be found on the first page in searches within your category with Google, MSN, Yahoo etc. to make it useful. (People don’t usually search past the first page or two.)
Below are some common questions asked on chat rooms re having your site listed.
# Why can’t I get listed in DMOZ
Can anyone tell me why I cannot get my site listed in DMOZ (Google).
I’ve submitted it several times (maybe 10 in the last 24 months), but nothing.
# My website is finished, why can’t I find it on the Search Engines?
# I have recently noticed that the Google Toolbar Page Rank has dropped
one of my clients ...
# Why can’t I get indexed by Google?
# I created my site 6 months ago.
Pages are automatically submitted to
Google when they are changed. But the site has still not been indexed. I
have tried several times now and sent messages to the editor but not got a
response. Could this mean that my site has been banned by Google.
# I have tried to get my firm listed in the DMOZ marketing and advertising firms with a cultural and ethnic focus for a few years to no avail. Any thoughts on this?
Recent research reveals 55% of all Internet purchases begin with a search engine, but 93% of these consumers do not look past the first two pages of search engine results.
Its also interesting that 33% of users think that if a company has a top ranking on a search engine, it is a leader in its field.
Can I pay for a better ranking?
Yes. Google offer Adwords.
These are text advertisements that appear alongside the main search results. You pay for each click on your ad.
BUT did you know that even though paid click advertising costs are on the increase, that up to 85% of searchers ignore paid listings
