Will new customers be able to find my Done Dave website?
Yes, of course! Done Dave websites are fully optimised so they are indexed in all major search engines, including Google and Yahoo. They come with a meta, website description which search engines use to display your site. On the meta description keep it to around 155 characters. But on all the other text areas on your website make sure you include lots of text about your services, where you operate, your business name and contact details. This way people searching for your services are more likely to find you.
How do I promote my Done Dave website?
The easiest method and cheapest, is to literally tell people about your new website. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising.
Another great way is via social media. So create a new post saying something like: Hi everyone, please check out my new website. Click the link here: mybusiness.donedave.com or your own domain if you have used that with your Done Dave website.
You can get specialist marketing companies to do this for you but this can be quite expensive, so to start off, it's best to use all free avenues to get the word spreading of your new website.
How can I make sure my Done Dave website appears in Google?
Simple! We do this for you. As soon as you make your website live, by clicking the Publish button, your website will be indexed into Google and other major search engines.
But how do people actually find my website if they are searching for my services?
For example, if someone required some building work on their home, they may search for 'Roofing company Southampton'. A search engine will display results which have these three words on their website.
So if you are a roofer or building company in Southampton make sure you have the words 'roofing company Southampton' displayed somewhere on your website.
So as a rule, make sure you have text on your website which explains all your services and which geographic area you cover. The more comprehensive the better. But don't cheat, never type the same services more than once or repeat yourself, Google will think you are spamming and trying to cheat the system.
Just make sure you write everything there is about your company, in an honest, detailed fashion. Then try searching for yourself, you'll eventually start to appear.
