How To Get Your Website Noticed

366 million.

As of December of 2011, that is how many websites there were on the Internet. With so many websites, it may seem impossible to get your website noticed.

Luckily, there are ways to help your site along. Here are 7 easy ways to get your website and your business noticed in the midst of millions of other websites.

  • Write great content. If you fill your website with quality content, people will want to keep coming back to see what you have to say. Make sure to keep your content fresh; readers will not want to continually see the same posts each time they visit.

  • Make your website look professional. A well-designed and easy-to-read website is appealing to readers. Nothing puts off visitors then a jumbled, overcrowded website. People would rather spend their time on a website that is easy to navigate and full of useful information than weeding through a bunch of words to find what they’re looking for.

  • Start linking. Links show search engines that other websites think that your content is important. Look for other websites similar to yours and ask if you can exchange links.

  • Do some off-line advertising. Yes, you want to get noticed online. But person-to-person advertising can also help get your website noticed. Hand out flyers for your business, submit a press release to your local newspaper or put an advertisement in the local bulletin boards. Make sure that your website URL is placed somewhere on your marketing material where it will easily be seen.

  • Use business cards. Get professional looking business cards printed and keep them with you at all times. You never go when you may need a potential customer. If you happen to meet someone while you are out, hand them your business card and tell them to check out your website.

  • Submit your website to every search engine. While putting your website URL on e-mail signatures and business cards is good for marketing, it will only reach customers who have already found you. Submitting your URL to the major search engines will give you a better chance of Internet searchers finding you. Also, give the search engines a helping hand by incorporating relevant keywords throughout your website.

  • Interact with your customers. Spend time in forums related to your industry and build a repoire with other users. Include a link to your website in your signature so that people will see it. Contribute useful information, and people will naturally click on your website to see what else you have to offer.

There are millions of websites on the Internet, and that number continues to grow each day. It may seem hard to drive people to your site when there are so many others out there, but it is well within your grasp, provided you have useful content, effective links, and market your site properly.
