Key Takeaways:

  • SEO (search engine optimization) is how your business or website shows up in Google or other search engines. There are critical pieces to add into your website to have it rank on the first page of Google.
  • Some great ways to uplevel your SEO is to utilize news resources or other local media. If a magazine publishes something about your business it will generally push up the searches and keep your page more popular. When preparing for this type of content to go live, make sure that your website is up to date and ready for new eyes on your business.
  • Site speed is a huge piece of getting people to stay on your website. If it takes 15 seconds for your page to load, you’ve likely lost your audience. Check to make sure that your content looks the same on a computer and on a phone.
  • Spending money on ads doesn’t necessarily mean that your page will rank. If you aren’t having luck with your ads, check your pages speed, look to make sure your page isn’t blacklisted, and make small tweaks to see what changes make a difference in clicks.
