What you need to know . . .
A good "ranking" on Google, MSN, Yahoo, Alta Vista, etc., can make all the difference between
a profitable web site and one that just sits there.
We will optimize your site to achieve top listing in Google searches and constantly encourage updates to your site's content, thereby increasing "organic hits", bringing more visitors to your site.
It is still, however, VERY worth while to market your site in any other advertising you do
including the web address on your business cards!
We will also recommend some very inexpensive methods to help your business grow and prosper.
Costs and benefits - What you need to know about owning your own web presence:
Your domain name “dot com " must be registered through a "Domain Registrar"such as GoDaddy.com, Nework Solutions, Homestead/Intuit, etc., or you may already have your domain in place at another registrar. Your domain can be "pointed" to your site at no additional charge.
If you would like, we will handle it all for you through Homestead/Intuit. In which case, your "Dot com" domain registration is $24 per year. We can bill you $2 per month.
Likewise, Domains will be Pointed or Transferred at no cost.
We will help you choose a domain name and do a search for one that is available.
You can also choose from: .org, .net, .mobi, .biz, etc.
When we design your web site, we will help you come up with a domain name that fits your business, services, or product offering. We will also advise you on the best domains to select.
On the subject of choosing your "dot com" (your domain name); here is an important hint -
One of the smartest things you can do in choosing your "dot com" (your domain name) is to try and use important keywords that might also be used by a potential customer searching the web. Our best suggestion is to get a domain that includes your city.
This way, when someone is searching, for instance, for a Lawn Service + Tampa,
Jim's Lawn service would benefit less if Jim just used JimsLawn.com rather than, the much better, JimsTampaLawn.com.
Even better, might be, JimsTampaLawnService.com Just examples, but you get the idea.
This is no secret, but an under used, very effective SEO dynamic.
