So what do you do? BlackRockSEO.com has some tips to correct some common issues with your website.

• Don’t have a website? Get one…….yesterday. If you need explanation on why you need a website then maybe you should check your VCR to make sure its recording tonight’s episode of Greys Anatomy.

• NAP should be on every page or easily accessible. NAP is your Business NAME, ADDRESS, and PHONE NUMBER. Having your office hours on every page would be beneficial too. Make them easy to find for potential and current customers.

• Your website should be mobile responsive. Mobile searches, from smartphones and tablets, account for 60% of all Internet traffic. You don’t want a potential customer struggling to zoom your non-optimized site on their smart phone to find a phone number or address.

  1. Make sure your phone numbers start a phone call when clicked on a mobile device.
  2. If you have more than one location, each location should have its own page on your site utilizing keywords to increase your local rankings.
  3. Overall your website should be optimized for On-Page SEO. Each page needs to have its own unique title, description, and be optimized for its content.
  4. You should strive to write new content once a week but once a month is better than not doing it at all. Be a wealth of knowledge on your website first before trying to sell your services. You’re credibility will sell itself.

These are just a few tips that can help you succeed online with your business. But lets be honest, there are only so many hours in a day, days in a week, weeks in a year.
