Working With Google

GoogleGaining Ranking Is Hard Work…

When you pay to get a website built some people assume that once it is built and live – that’s the hard work over. They believe they don’t need to do anything else. Please let me stress, they only think this because someone hasn’t taken the time to explain to them how it all works.

Here is a checklist of what you need to complete:

Are the page titles set?
Is the site registered with the browsers?
Do you have on-page and off-page SEO?
Do you have any website back-up / security?
Have you done your keyword research?

If you don’t have a back-up in place to protect your website and it is hacked – you are pretty scre*ed.  It will take a qualified SEO Engineer hours to recover the site, if at all possible.

Apart from the points mentioned above, you really should have a monthly SEO package in place, so your site is constantly being promoted whether its social bookmarking, link building, directory submissions or working on the keywords.  The important thing to understand is if your website is left with no new content or activity – Google will consider it potentially SPAM.

When working with your web developer, ask them?

  1. Have you quoted me for SEO?
  2. Are you setting my page titles?
  3. What keywords are we focusing on?
  4. Can you show me the links?


It is a fact in this industry that some people only do what you ask them.  Seems fair on one hand, but on the other hand you would like someone to advise.  All depends on the skill set and personality of the person you are working with.

Digital Diva Media provide full consultation from start through to finish.  We use Associates to ensure you are advised of everything you need.  If you cannot afford some of the things we recommend, at least we have made you aware of things like security, SEO etc.
