    It is a good idea to check through your Contact form entries for spam – particularly if the entry includes a URL.
    This is important, as it may affect your SEO rankings.
    To avoid spam, you can use Captcha on your forms.

    If you want to get onto Google Page 1 for a competitive keyword phrase, you will probably need to have a high word count in your page or blog. For example, 800 to 1000 words. This will allow you to repeat the keyword phrase a few times within the body copy. It is better to focus on quality rather thank quantity, i.e. a few pages that work rather…[Read more]

    Hi Nigel, I am getting confused a bit. we are targeting in our focus keyword for our home page ‘free ecommerce dropship website’. we ranked for this keyword on page 3 of Google but for ‘free eCommerce dropshipping website in the UK’ we rank in page 1 although we did not try to rank for it specifically

    An interesting question. My wife’s gite business is achieving 1500+ views per month. People are booking through our web site not only the airBnB’s or NaturHouse’s of this world. What is the comparison with my business site?

    • Hi Ken, I think that you are referring to: https://business-compass.com
      Part of the answer is the way that you are positioning your business.
      For example, do you think of it as a management consultancy, or, say, a technical / IT / digital management consultancy? (Or something else?)
      The market will be searching for solutions based around their…[Read more]
