Help the Search Engines Find You

To do this, you must make sure you have appropriate keywords in the title on your home page. The page should be constructed to attract search phrases your potential customer might use. These phrases should also be worked in to your promotional copy to get the search engines’ attention, yet at the same time make sense to a visitor.

For instance, if you paint houses for a living, your main key phrase would be (your city or town here) and “house painter”. This is most likely one of the phrases people will use when searching for a house painter.

One other simple, but effective tip in this case is to use the phrase as a single word – housepainter. You can also work in the plural version, house painters.

Now is not the time to judge or criticize, now is the time to attract those searchers. However, don’t limit your thinking to this phrase only. Put yourself in the searcher’s mind.

How might they find you?

Not everyone thinks alike, so take some time to create a list of potential phrases someone needing their house painted might use.

Here are some words you could add to your master tag of “house painter”.

Avoid phrases such as “First Class”, or “Top Notch”. These are advertising phrases not search enquiries.

These are just a few of many terms you should be incorporating into you web site.

Remember – try to think like your potential customer.
