Leverage THIS to Get Respect Online
Online… respect is everything!
What do I mean by that? If customers like your website, products or services, they talk about it. They will like and share your posts on Facebook and Twitter and mention it to their friends. That’s great and we all love ‘word of mouth’ advertising. but I’m talking about gaining Google’s respect.
When the Google spider visits your website it looks at hundreds of things from which it establishes the ‘value’ of your website. Essentially, it determines if your website should be listed on page 1 or page 119 for your keyword phrases. Gaining Google’s respect is what it is all about.
How do we get respect Online?
One of the critical things Google considers is what other sites link to your website. Links are like votes for your website and Google looks at every link that points to your site because not all links carry the same weight. The finest link you can get is from a ‘LOCAL authority website‘. Google knows you can get links from thousands of sites, but if a local business links to your site that carries significant Google ju-ju.
A link for the Flathead Valley Business Directory is a huge plus and it offers other valuable benefits. Your listing is actually a ‘mini website’ with a photo slideshow, unlimited description, links to your website and all your social sites, plus all your contact information. Your listing is also ‘mobile friendly’ so it can show up in mobile search results. And why is that important to you?
