A question that we are often asked when people start hosting their new website with us is:
“How do I get my website on Google?”
There are two straightforward steps you can take to get started.
- Tell Google about it: Add URL page
- Get other websites to link to yours – the more relevant links you get to your website the better
With those simple steps you will be able to let Google know your site exists. How fast it appears on Google and how high it appears will very much depend on the second point. The more relevant links you have to your site, the better. If your site gets linked to by BBC News you will get some great rankings on search engines.
Once you are on the search engines, you need to ensure your site is frequently updated with relevant and useful content. The more frequently your site is updated, the more likely both users and search engine robots will check the site.
