Getting good placement in Google search is tough. You should aspire for page one of results, but that might take some work. There are a few things you can do to ensure that your website is being seen. Let’s take a look!

Google My Business

Don’t forget to link your site to your Google My Business page. This can help your page appear in relevant geographic search results. When you claim your Google My Business listing, Google will send you a physical post card containing a pin to your business address that you then use to verify your business is a legitimate one. Learn how to claim your GMB listing.

Load Time

Google uses ‘site speed’ as a ranking signal in its algorithm. Sites that load fast are given priority in search results and will be seen by searchers. Improve your speed by shrinking the size of your site’s images using tools like Tiny Png to help compress without losing picture quality. Then make sure you’re using fast hosting. If you’re not sure, Vervocity Interactive can help!


Create backlinks to your website. Backlinks are links from other sites to your own. You can do this by asking other sites to feature your content or by creating long, keyword-rich blog posts that are extremely relevant to your business niche. These nicely done blogs will likely be picked up by other reputable sites and featured as important content.


Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, is the process of online marketing that affects the natural, unpaid, visibility of a website in search engine results. Successful SEO helps a website gain top positioning for relevant words and phrases.

When using a search engine, 75% of internet users don’t look past the first page. What keywords are your customers using to search for your services and where does your website rank for those keywords? Both are significant questions that you should not overlook.

Search engines are constantly changing the algorithms used to determine the most relevant search results. We stay on top of all the latest trends to ensure search engines are seeing your site.
