Marketing and options on the web

Well there is a lot here so this will be done maybe over several posts.  What I want to say is if you want leads from the web I would certainly consider using Google Adwords. You will pay per click and you have to watch this but it is the fastest way to get leads.

Another way is the old fashioned way and that is to just do SEO to the organic search engines to get in the top page of Google or Bing. ((Good luck!) If you pay a service for several key words it will take several hundred to thousands of dollars a month! Yes I said hundreds or thousands per month. This can work it just takes time.  Time factor up to six months or more.

Social media like Facebook is also a quick way to get leads depending on yur product or services and it can work well but no guarentees here.

OK Part oneis done more later.

What makes a bad website according to Google

What defines a low quality website?
A low quality website is not the same as a spam website. According to Google’s quality guidelines, the following makes a low quality website:
  1. Low quality main content
    The quality of the content is determined by how much time, effort, expertise, and talent/skill have gone into the creation of the page.
    If the content of your website has been created automatically, or if it has been created by copying or scraping other sites, chances are that Google will flag your site as a low quality website.
    Ironically, Google's own content solely consists of scraped, copied and automatically created content.
    The web page must also have enough content for the purpose of the page. For example, a few paragraphs on a broad topic such as the second world war is not enough for an encyclopedia article.
  2. Lack of expertise, authoritativeness, or trustworthiness
    To be considered trustworthy, some topics demand expertise for the content. For example, medical advice, legal advice, financial advice, etc. should come from authoritative sources in those fields.
    Even everyday topics, such as recipes and housecleaning, should come from those with experience and everyday expertise in order for the page to be trustworthy.
  3. Negative reputation
    Most businesses have some negative reviews, especially for customer service. Google requires manual website raters to read the details of negative reviews and low ratings before inferring that the business has a negative reputation.
  4. Unhelpful or distracting supplementary content, poor page design
    If the main purpose of your website is to get clicks on the ads, your pages won't get a high quality rating.
    If your page is functional for its purpose, it is okay if it looks like it was created in the 90s (although this is not recommended).
    If your web pages are designed to shift the user's attention to the ads, or if the main content is difficult to read, the pages will get a low quality rating.
  5. Lacking care and maintenance
    Your website does not make a good impression if many links on your web pages are broken, if images do not load, and if the content feels stale or outdated. If you have a website with medical information, legal information, tax information, etc. then you must update it frequently because users expect information about the most current medical thinking, current laws, this year’s tax information, etc.
    It depends on the purpose of your website. A year without updates for a personal photo website is okay, several days without updates on a major news website are not okay.
Low quality websites do not get high rankings on Google. There is no fast track to high rankings.

What does Google thinks is a good website

What defines a high quality website? (From Google)
According to Google's quality guidelines, the following makes a high quality website:
  1. Good content
    High quality pages are pages that contain "a satisfying amount of high quality main content". Creating high quality content takes a significant amount of at least one of the following: time, effort, expertise, or talent/skill.
    According to Google, high quality encyclopedia articles should be factual, accurate, clearly written, and comprehensive. High quality shopping content should allow you to find the products you want and to purchase the products easily.
    The amount of content necessary for the page to be satisfying depends on the topic and purpose of the page. A high quality page on a broad topic with a lot of available information will have more content than a high quality page on a more narrow topic.
  2. No technical errors How frequently a website should be updated depends on its purpose. However, all high quality websites are well cared for, maintained, and updated appropriately.
    Google encourages the quality raters to poke around: links should work, images should load, content should be added and updated over time, etc. The website audit tool in our web-based Internet marketing tool SEOprofiler helps you to make sure that your web pages do not contain errors.
  3. A positive reputation If a website has a bad reputation, this has a negative influence on the quality of the website. Google says that website raters should check user ratings, BBB ratings, news articles, Wikipedia articles, blog posts, magazine articles, forum discussions, and ratings from independent organizations to judge the reputation of a company.
    The social media monitor in SEOprofiler helps you to protect your online reputation.
  4. The website should have a high level of expertise/authoritativeness/trustworthiness High quality pages and websites need enough expertise to be authoritative and trustworthy on their topic. The term "expert" can be used for websites of all types, including gossip websites, fashion websites, humor websites, etc.
    Google explicitly states that they also value "everyday expertise" that is based on life experience. A website should not be penalized for not having formal education or training.
  5. The website should had a functional page design
    Your website should be well-organized and have a functional overall layout. The main content should be prominently displayed and it should be clear what the main content is.
    Ads and secondary content should not distract from the main content. It should be clear what parts of the page are ads, either by explicit labeling or simply by page organization or design.
    What constitutes functional design for a shopping page may be very different from what constitutes functional design for an informational page. While it is important that a page is functional, it is not important that it is pretty.

    More info to come soon. what is important is that you use a professional company that knows what they are doing.   Just because it iss free does not necessarily mean it is right.

    More coming soon.
