Want to go a little further?
You may want to consider Google Adwords to give your Google ranking a boost!
Google AdWords (Pay Per Click) is an advertising service by Google for businesses wanting to display ads on Google search and its advertising network. It allows businesses to essentially pay to have their website higher up the rankings. If your AdWords ad is clicked on, users are then directed to your website and you are charged, out of your budget for the click. Google AdWords is a good way to give your website an initial boost on Google rankings, particularly if you do not have a huge amount of text on your website.
For us to manage a Google Ad for you, we would need you to provide:
- Budget. How much you are willing to spend on the advert, per month.
- What locations/regions you wish to cover (towns, or postcodes etc).
- What key search phrase you want to use for the advert.
Please keep in mind that vague search phrases and larger location areas will be more expensive per click, as they will have more competition.
Using this information, we can then provide you with an estimate for how many clicks your advert will allow, in return for your combination of budget and search phrase. This will determine how long the advert remains active. Once you reach the click limit, the ad will be suspended until the start of the next month. You can of course deactivate the ad at any time.
There are two package options for this service:
