Webgloss includes our standard optimisation for the Google Search Engine in all of our packages. We hand code each website from scratch with Google optimisation built into the code.
It is not enough just to get a website to page 1 of Google. If the search phrase they are on page 1 for is never used by people when
searching then being on page 1 is useless.
They need to have a high position for a search phrase that people will actually type into Google. Many
web designers promise to get you on page 1 but they don't mention for which search phrase!
All our websites are optimised for Google with relevant search phrases. We have over 15 years of SEO experience at Webgloss, experience that has proven to be invaluable when optimising our client websites for Google. There are no guarantees but over 99% of our websites are on page 1 for relevant search phrases, phrases that people actually use when searching!
Cheating doesn't usually pay in the long term and if a web designer uses tactics such as 'hidden text' to fool
the search engines' indexing software then Google may well ban the website permanently from their search engine.
Webgloss never has and never will use these tactics.
Google treats this kind of cheating very seriously and may even remove your business permanently from their search engine. The best way forward is to have a website that is optimised correctly for Google and that faithfully represents your business.
There is no guarantee of a free listing with any major search engine, including Google, and any web design firm that advises differently
is advising you incorrectly.
You should think very carefully before parting with any money to firms offering wonderful guaranteed results with search engine listings. Amazingly, even Google receives the spam emails that begin..
"Dear google.com, I visited your web site and noticed that you are not listed in most of the major search engines and directories..."
Google says: "Reserve the same scepticism for unsolicited email about search engines as you do for 'burn fat at night' diet pills or requests to help transfer funds from deposed dictators."
Google also gives this quote they received from a business:
"We have been on the internet since 1996 and had always taken a very conservative approach on our site. For nearly a year though, we were bombarded by emails from third party linking programs, which stressed the importance of linking for relevancy. Finally, we broke down and joined one of these programs. Unfortunately, the program used hidden links, and Google removed us from the index within a week. I guess it's true that anyone can get fooled into buying snake oil." - Frank, owner of a limousine services company.
So be extremely cautious and don't believe the hype that lands in your email box!:
