proper search engine optimization and social media presence

Website Design and Optimization

There is more to a website than meets the eye. Turning a website into a successful tool for you or your company goes way beyond what it looks like. Yes, looks are important, but a website needs more than good looks to succeed. People looking for products, services or information make use of browsers like Google, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari, and more. A great website will be built in a way that makes it search engine-friendly. That's what this website is all about. Google Webmaster Tools is there to help webmasters comply with proper guidelines when designing websites.

The success of your website depends on many factors that go beyond its looks. Proper search engine optimization, known as SEO, ensures that search engines like Google can crawl and index the contents of your website properly. If this is done in accordance with Google Webmaster Tools then you are on the right road. Unfortunately, many webmasters don't follow the basics of these guidelines and the websites don't perform according to clients' expectations.

I have had a few customers who enthusiastically wanted to join the ranks of my successful clients, but grew impatient when things didn't happen immediately. Even though I tried to explain what is involved they, unfortunately, ignored my advice and terminated prematurely or listened to the wrong advice from others. I have learned that some people don't want to hear that they are making a wrong decision, so I leave them. Recently, I had clients return to me because they lost time and money making use of the 'wonderful' advice and services competitors were offering.

If you are serious about having a successful online presence and you want traffic to your website, then you can contact me. I have learned what will make your website work and have a good track record to prove it. Just remember that not all businesses start off with a bang and become an overnight success. You are competing with other people online and every day the competition grows stronger with more websites being added to the fray - that is the reality. But, fortunately, many of them are still ignoring Google's requirements. So you still have room for being better than them if you make the right decision.

I know this is a long introduction and I've highlighted the mistakes that people make - I also had to learn the hard way. When we co-operate with Google and follow their advice the results are really rewarding. Google will do wonderful things for your website if we follow their rules which are there to benefit everyone - you and the visitors to your website. I look forward to being of service to you.

Hi, I'm Ron.

I have been blogging since 2012 and make use of Social Media together with Content Marketing to promote my clients' businesses to help grow their companies. I am passionate about my work and believe in making a difference through my creativity. My photographic skills also contributes to my success.
