Hi and welcome to a new feature we have. I get so many questions asked that im starting a new category called :- Search Engine and SEO Question
So lets start off with this question i received:- How do i get my website higher up the search engines?
Now every website has to be judged on its own merits before i devise a linking plan, however lets assume your website has the correct onsite seo work done and your languishing on page four or five. Some general advice would be to get some backlinks to your website.
Well for general advice then..
* Try not to get too many spammy links. By this i mean links that can be posted easily and without moderation. Your links will sit on the same page as Viagra pills and gambling/porn sites. Spend a little more effort working on link building
* Contact trusted, authority sites. You may not be able to get a link from thebbc.co.uk, cnn.com etc. But how about finding the website that do have a link from these trusted sites and ask them to link to you. One link away is great, two is good and so on.
* If your website has mainly 1 type of links (directories for example) then vary it a little A diverse link profile is a much more effective one. Use video and articles and press releases etc.
