One thing that is getting more and mroe important over the past few years, and continues to be the case, is download speed, no one, including yourself is going to wait ages for a web page to load, if it’s not there with three seconds then you click the back button and try elsewhere, and this could be a lost sale.
Also, remember, once someone has landed on your home page, they need to know within a couple of seconds they are in the right place, and it’s obvious to them exactly what you sell, and that’s just what they are looking for. Don’t force them to route about your website searching for the product or servide you are advertising, it should be there, in their face, to the point.
If i am looking to buy something i search online for it, land on a web page and if i can see it straight away, and the price is right of course, i will buy it there and then.
The key to being a success online is made up of many different elements, from the right hosting account to the way your website is built, but one thing does stand out above all others, and that’s website marketing using backlinking.
We provide a website management service that can include your website marketing using backlinking, this will help your website to not only be updated on a regular basis, new pages added as and when required but will also help your website get found for your businesses keywords, and surely that’s your ultimate goal.
Marketing your website is best left to the experts leaving you to carry on with the running of your day to day business, building the wrong type of links can have a negative affect on your website and you could end up spending months on building backlinks for nothing.
There are many things you can do to improve your website rankings and one simple improvement you should do right away is make sure your company website is mobile friendly, you can test your website from our link in a previous article blog post, the Google mobile friendly test.
Another thing that Google requires, although it’s not imperative just yet but the sooner you make this change the better, and that’s changing from http to https. Google has decided, well, some time ago actually that https is a ranking factor.
The benefits of moving to https now are minimul, i have a website at the top of Google for it’s main competitive keywords but i do expect it will slide down the rankings over the next few months but i am going to just leave it there to see what happens, and when, it’s all good learning.
Also, when you change from http to https you lose all your previous backlinks as you now have a new URL, also you must configure the correct 301 redirects from all your web pages to your new URL, or you will be penalized for duplicate content i guess, what a pain.
