Improving Your Rank in Search Results
Facebook and Twitter are great for keeping in touch with customers, but does the time you invest translate into the best ROI for attracting new customers?
Improving your rank in search results just may be the most important thing you can do to grow your business.
Why? Because people search online before making virtually any purchase. It doesn’t matter if you own a restaurant, a beauty salon or a construction company, how well you rank in search results affects your bottom line.
One of the best ways to boost your website’s search rank is by getting good ‘local’ links pointing to your site. Google places huge value on local links, especially from ‘authority’ sites. A handful of quality local links are more valuable than having hundreds (or even thousands) of other miscellaneous or unrelated links.
Quality Links Drive Ready-to-Buy Shoppers
A link from the Flathead Guide provides two formidable benefits. One, you get a quality backlink to your site from a local authority site, which makes Google very happy. Two, it creates a source of new traffic to your site resulting from search activity.
For those of you who know me, have hired me or have read any of my books, you know that I know a little bit about what works online and what’s marketing hype. You can buy a $10,000 advertising blitz that generates a bunch of new phone calls, but when your budget is spent, the calls stop.
However, that link you get today continues to work for you virtually forever. Advertising is for NOW…but a good quality link pays dividends indefinitely. Add your business listing to the Flathead Guide today and get more than just a link.
