Search engine optimization is still the single most effective thing one can do to market a website on the net. Marketing websites is not yet a science -- it's still an artform. We've practiced the art of website marketing since 1996, to help our clients' websites make money for their owners.

The first and most important step is "Search Engine Optimization" of your website, which is achieved by making your pages very visible to the search engines, giving them exactly what you want them to see when indexing your site. This helps give your site a high ranking in a search engine like Google when someone searches for your product or service. (It's not the only ingredient for good rankings in the search engines, but it is the most important for most websites.)

We routinely get #1 placement at search engines like Google and Bing for our clients. Sometimes this is easily done by slightly modifying a website, and sometimes it requires a complete re-design of a website to do away with things that make your site invisible to the search engines. For lots of free, practical advice on how you can do search engine optimization on your own site (and how we might be able to help you), visit our Do it Yourself Search Engine Optimization page.

Check our blog posting for information on the most effective methods of how to get relevant links to your website from other sites. This is a very important part of how to get a site to the top of the search engines.

There are two very important things on which search engine rankings depend:

  1. Having lots of relevant text content on your website about your keywords, optimized so that Google can see them, with keywords where they need to be to tell Google what each page of your site is about.
  2. Having many links to your website from other relevant websites.

Commercial Website Design

What are you really trying to accomplish through your website? If it is a commercial website then it has several purposes, but the main thrust must be to sell your product or service. To put it bluntly, "To make you money".

So first, your website must be an effective advertisement for your product or service. Second, it should give your visitors enough information about your company so they feel confident about buying from you. That's the kind of info usually found in corporate brochures, fact sheets, testimonials and so on. Third, it ought to further your public relations message to the general public about the kind of company you are and the good things you've accomplished.

Your website may not need flaming logos or the latest in Flash animations to accomplish those goals. What seems good to a website designer is not always good for the website! For tons of practical advice on how you can accomplish your goal of making money from your website (and how we might help you) see our How to Design a Commercial Website page.
