How do I get seen on page 1 of Google
First off, there are two ways of being found on Google – Organic Listings and Google Maps.
Google Organic Listings
Organic Listings involve more of your website structure, or how well your foundational SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is set up. Foundational SEO is the basics your website pages need to be seen effectively with search engines.
- Meta description
- Focus keyword
- Proper use of headings (H1, H2 and H3)
- Image names,
- Alt text.
You would be surprised by how often these basics are not setup. Once your foundation is set, then a keyword search strategy can be put in place to determine what keywords matter for your business and how to best implement those keywords on your website.
