Everyone knows potential customers use search engine results to learn about your product or service. Did you know some web site templates limit your search results?
It’s important for your core keyword listing to be found on the first page of search results. Yet, this has everything to do with how your web site is built and displayed online.
If you’ve been around the net for a few years, you might have tried your hand at building your own web site. The tools provided for your use were probably of the what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) variety. Drag and drop into a ready template. No need to understand HTML. Perhaps you’ve even tried your hand at blogging with Blogger.
Maybe you’ve attempted Adobe Dreamweaver and decided not to become a full-time webmaster. Or perhaps you paid another web designer to build and support your site. Once setup, you may have had to pay this middleman for every update you wanted, every time you wanted it.
After all this, your site still was not search engine optimized. You struggled trying to get top ten search rankings.
Is there a better way? Yes, there are many kinds of content management systems (CMS) which mainly serve designers and developers. Yet, there is a simple to use system that’s a great fit for an entrepreneurial person.
The WordPress CMS. It’s a professional, search engine optimized (seo) platform. This open-source solution allows you to easily change text and pictures, even the site design, when needed. Plus, it’s built on a solid core of search engine optimization elements.
WordPress is the Goodhelp Web answer for small shops or start-up business sites. Spend your time building your customer base, instead of spending time tweaking your web site. Yes, I do use what I recommend; what you’re reading here is hosted on the WordPress platform solution.
