Few Free Tips About Your Website That Your Web Developer Hasn’t Told You

Originally this article was prepared by me for the members of US MTV portal. But as I started to go deeper and deeper – I have decided to publish it here.

I am a web designer and website developer with more than 8 years experience and would like to share few free tips about your websites that your web developer hasn’t told you.

It doesn’t matter how much money you have invested in the development of your website (some people could even retire for those amounts). If it doesn’t show in the 1st page of Google when people are looking for you – you have wasted your money, time and energy.

For example, I personally know a guy who invested 50k euros in his dream business, but didn’t succeed just because his website wasn’t found in the 1st pages of search engines (he went bankrupt after some time without getting any clients and almost no visitors in his website).

Statistics (for an average keyword) – #5 place in Google gives you approx. 6000 unique visitors a month, and #1 place (don’t think so high though) gives more than 50000 unique visitors a month the same time as # 54 will give you max 2 visitors a day (and i am not saying they even will be unique ones).

The only thing you can do – find a reliable company (and I am meaning RELIABLE company not some guys you know) who will do search engine optimisation for you, but:

  1. make a contract – what they promise (ranking in the 1st page of Google after your keywords, quality backlinks, time period etc.)
  2. do not pay more than 30% upfront – before the job is done. If they refuse – there are 100-s of good SEO firms out there who will accept these terms. Show them the money (30%) and they will agree;)
  3. write down all the information the SEO firm has requested and provide it as soon as possible.
  4. When You make a contract with SEO firm – do not agree for monthly payments – you should go only for 1 fixed payment for this particular job – they should get you in the 1st page of Google (do not forget the main reason you went to them – as they will try to sell more services to you as all the businesses do).
  5. And say to them – You want the work to be dome MANUALLY (very important point as using different systems can and will do the opposite). Remember – bad seo firms and especially IT students do not work manually (and they will try to pursue you that that is the best and cheapest way for a top place in Google – don’t go for it).

It may sound harsh, but remember – the reality is that 97% of all the websites (good or bad) are not functional, just because they are not having any visitors. And that is the fault of website owners – if you see something is not as good as planned – change the service provider or loose the money and your future possibilities.

This is never about the thing how nice or smart seems the website developer – it is always about your site – it has to bring you more fans and make you money…

Hopefully this will help You,
