How Can I Make Sure My Site Doesn’t Drop In Google?

Posted by Andrew Leamon on 11-Jun-2015 13:17:00

After years of keeping focussed on your target, of expensive and diligent hard work, you have finally conquered the famous Google Algorithm. You have a steady flow of new enquiries coming from the internet and it all seems worthwhile. Now for the next challenge - just because you have good rankings today, doesn’t mean you will have them tomorrow. Google results are fluid and the fact that you have been able to get your website to the top means that it is very possible that the next competitor could overtake you, or your site could drop like a stone if Google so decree.

Should I Design My Own Website?

Posted by Andrew Leamon on 21-Mar-2015 09:30:00

I meet new business people and look at their websites nearly every day. I see business owners who have spent £50,000 on their site, I meet business owners who have paid a small local web designer £500 to design a site, and I meet business people who have got a mate to do it or had a bash at it themselves for next to nothing.

If you are thinking of designing your own site, perhaps this article can help you clarify your thoughts and make the right decision for your business.

Does Google AdWords/PPC Work For UK Small Business Owners?

Posted by Andrew Leamon on 06-Dec-2014 10:31:00

Google AdWords is the name of Google’s Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising platform. There are different forms of this type of advertising, but when most people think about Google AdWords they think about the search results at the very top of Google’s search result pages (which used to be on a shaded background, and now have a small yellow tag by them reading ‘Ad’), and also the results that appear on the right hand side of search results pages.

Unfortunately SEO is Not as Easy as it Once Was. Unfortunately? Or Fortunately?

Posted by Andrew Leamon on 29-Mar-2014 08:39:56

It is many people’s belief (including many SEO companies) that in order to get a website ranking well in Google, they need to ensure that when Google looks at that site, it is made absolutely clear what that sites’ owner/s want it to rank for. In other words, if you want the site to rank well for ‘Precision Engineering companies’, then you better repeat that phrase in as many places as possible – in the pages themselves and in the background of the site – you may hear people talking about getting keywords into the meta descriptions, title tags, H1 headers etc… More learned SEO professionals may talk of demonstrating to Google that your site is popular and useful, by engineering as many ‘links’ from other sites as possible – this often involves directory submissions, forum comments, guest blog post and many other areas.

We don’t do any marketing, all our business comes from word of mouth,’ says the business owner as he leans on the counter waiting for the phone to ring.

Anyway I could never afford to pay for it; we are on a really tight budget’.

Sound familiar? What I often feel like saying to the business owner when we have this conversation (which is often) is ‘well if the word of mouth business is so good then why have you got no money?’ But I am sometimes too polite for my own good.

Most people are in business because they want to make a profit. So why the stigma when it comes to actively looking for new business?  Often the business owner in this scenario has seen no growth in the business in the last 5 years, and isn’t likely to in the next 5. Yet when I ask if they want to grow they usually say ‘yes of course, if you’re not growing, you’re going backwards’.
