    Search Engine Help

    Hi. . .Iíve built and hosted a website on Fasthost and using the Fasthost site builder. The site has been online for over 6 months, however Google or any other search engine still does not pick it up. Iíve tried everything I can think of but still nothing. Can anyone look at the source code and give me a clue as to why search engines donít pick up my website?

    The website address is www.handpiecerepair.co.uk

    Any help much appreciated

    Hi,

    This really is such a broad subject, but you can basically break it down into the following:

    Semantic html

    Content

    Inbound links (and the quality of those inbound links - i.e. where they are coming from).

    There's really not a lot of mistery about it - it's all about helping search engines find you, not into tricking them (which will often do you more harm than good!)

    Most sites, I get indexed within a couple of weeks, without paying a penny, the record being 3 days - then it's a case of carefully tweaking the content in order to come up under the relevant key words/phrases.

    Hope that helps,

    Kind regards,

    Gary

    Hi Alan,

    Like Gary says, this is a pretty broad subject, but I'll distill it down for you to the specific problem that's affecting you right now: you have zero inbound links.

    This case is a real shame because you're in market with a relatively low level of competition, if you'd only seeked a little bit of professional advice six months ago who knows where you could be now?

    Get some links a.s.a.p, and good luck.

    Thanks for you help guys. . . . As itís a very small business with a very low turnover so it doesnít warrant me spending hundreds of pounds getting a professional to design a proper website for me . . As I understand it an inbound link is a link from another website . . any idea how I can achieve this?


    Thanks once again

    Alan

    Quite

    Well you've made a start already you've got the first link to your site right there in your post, and that link will be there in perpetua - for as long as this forum exists. Avoid spamming forums etc. with your link though, as you'll just get banned and the posts will be deleted - however, if you are asking proper questions (as you are) it's fine.

    Also, online business directories could be worth a try, many offer free listings and then give you the opportunity to pay for a bigger advert or whatever.

    Another thing worth noting, is that search engines (as far as I know) give the text of any inbound links a weighting, depending on what the text says, so for instance:

    Dental Handpiece Repair Specialist in Reading, Berkshire.

    Would probably be weighted higher than simply:


    http://www.handpiecerepair.co.uk/

    There you go, two more links to your site

    Kind regards,

    Gary

    Alan, I think you may pay attention to the article directories, blogs, link exchanges with similar content sites and press releases. This is most popular promotion techniques. Also look at this site on which you can get a free report how to promote your site with web 2.0 methods
    And also you should not only focusing on gather only backlinks - without good optimized for your keywords content, it will unable to get on top at search engines. It is possible to get high rankings even without spending money on advertising.
