SEO Problems

Hi everybody,

I am having some SEO work done soon. My first designer claims he had optimised it and within weeks it should start ranking but it hasn't.

I cant even find my website if I type in Venue Shark. Does anybody have any advice on how to do some basic SEO myself as the website does not appear even if I search all the text on it!

Thanks in advance,

Douglas

The reason your website isn't ranking in Google is because Venue Shark as far as I can see is only written once on your homepage. http://www.venueshark.co.uk/

Try and squeeze as many uses of the word Venue Shark as you can across the site without making it sound spammy. :-)

Hey,

I think if you get the person who designed your website (if they used HTML and CSS) to put key words in the header section of your website coding so when those key words are typed into google, your website will have more of a chance of showing up. I havnt done html in ages but i'm sure thats what the header can be used for.

Hope that helps.

Here's a quick analysis:

Your site is not indexing in Google. check this site:venueshark.co.uk.

Having no meta description and meta keywords.

You need to change this. <meta name='robots' content='noindex,nofollow' />.

Moreover, site not having XML site map too. Fix all of them if you want to get index in Google.

If you need any expertise, let me know.

For getting better results you should have your website designed on Wordpress platform as there are many good SEO plugins that will boost your site's rankings in search engines. Also the content of your site should include your target keywords for which you are aiming to rank high in SERPS.

If you are not using Wordpress then focus on your target keywords, plus get good quality backlinks to your site, preferably from high PR sites in your niche.

Do some article marketing plus some basic social marketing.

Thanks for the advice,

All the advice above is great, but you also have to remember that it can take time for google to pick up new sites. Keep commenting on blog articles- relevant, useful comments though (with links back to your site), post on forums with a signature link, try and get other websites to link to you. Given some time, Google will find one of these links, come across your site and index it., though it can take weeks for Google to head over to your site again to record your updated metadata etc...

Choose some keywords with low competition and include them on your web sites meta tag. Start building links with those keywords then it will start to rank.

If your onpage has been complete try to do some social media including Facebook and twitter in them.

You should get a google webmaster account and verify your website on there. It's a very useful tool for overviewing your SEO.

If you think you have done the on page process successfully go ahead with some off page techniques such as Guest blogging, forum posting and social media techniques.
