Find it on search engines

Another email in the inbox..”we can put you on first page of google”. This is such a misleading statement. I wonder how many times these sites and spammers get business from this claim.  First of all, isn’t the first page of Google..simply Google.com? The  last time I checked, there were no ads or links to anything outside of Google on that page. First page of search results? For what search term are they promising results? Is it organic or paid search?

If you have a big enough budget, you can get on the first page of your desired keyword search results on your own. Set-up adwords accounts and bid the phrase you desire. It may cost a lot of money, but it is possible to do it very quickly.

If you want organic or free search engine results on the first page of the results, it may require a little more time and money. While its free to be listed in google..it cost time. How much is your time worth? How much is your employee’s time worth? Do you or your employees have the knowledge and skill-set to accomplish what is needed to help your website be found in the search results? Most of these companies that make this claim have a  plan in place to help you get results. Most, I have found require you to spend a lot of money on adwords, which can be a great solution. Its the misleading pitch I dislike.

I launched my new company page for Bo the Webguy, a few months ago. Currently as of today ( December 30th, 2009), I now have it listed organically on the first page of Google for the search term ‘webguy’. Its also showing on Bing.com for the same term. I have control of all 10 of the results for “bo the webguy’ on google and bing.

Does your new home site or builder website show up on google for your targeted keywords? Are you even targeting the right keywords? Get help!
