Indexing and Ranking

After launching my first blog Max Kalles to test how fast it would get indexed and then begin to rank, I'm happy to announce that Yahoo has finally indexed the site and I'm now ranked first for the keyword phrase coolest red headed canadian. Yahoo was the first search engine to index this blog, followed by MSN, all the web, and Alta Vista. Google still hasn't indexed the site which may be because of their sandbox feature.

When launching new websites from our experience it is much quicker to get indexed in Yahoo and MSN and start to rank on their first pages before Google. The main reason is the Google sandbox, and this is important for people to take into consideration when a new site is created. You can't expect to rank number one overnight and have to plan your marketing accordingly. One of the ways to guarantee that you rank in Google right from the beginning is to take advantage of Google adwords in the sponsored links section of the search engine. Google adwords is a great way to drive traffic to your website. If you are interested in learning more about Adwords and how it can benefit your business you can attend one of our Internet seminars.

Traffic VS Conversions

The trend on the Internet these days is all about traffic. Everyone wants to know how can I rank high in the search engines? how can I get more traffic. Don't get me wrong traffic is important; however it is the companies that focus on conversions that will get better results. Traffic is finite. There are only so many people searching in the search engines for your product or service. Of course it is beneficial that you are the first to show up in a search but once your there how do you grow your business? The ability to take a finite number of traffic, and increase the number of them that do business with you is far more valuable then increasing traffic. Converting your existing traffic is much less costly then working on growing your traffic. You will also notice faster and better results on your bottomw line. Unfortunately too many businesses are only focused on bringing traffic to their websites and not on converting that traffic to customers. And here's the kicker, the number one reason why conersions is more important then traffic. The websites that have a higher conversion rate will earn more money, and be able to invest more money into getting traffic and will rank higher in the search engines.
