Why is your site not showing up on Google or Bing? Is it buried deep in search results? Or not visible at all? Here are 4 reasons your site might be overlooked by Google and other search engines.
Why isn't my website on Google?
Google won't show your website in search engine results if your site is not up to code. That means meta tags, meta description, mobile viewport, etc, etc. Don't know what any of that means? Then your site might need some work.
Why can't I find my site on Bing or Google?
A website needs to be built properly for Google to consider it a valid site. Site loading slowly? Google drops your ranking. Too little text? Your site will be shown after your competitors. Images overlapping or not properly optimized for mobile? You guessed it, you're disappearing in results.
How can I get my site higher on Google?
If your site is up to code in both mobile and desktop and professionally built - but still buried in search results, then you need SEO (search engine optimization) help. A site can be perfectly built, but the higher the competition in your area, the more you need SEO services.
How can I be found in search engines?
SEO never ends. Your website ranking on search engine fluctuates with every competitor's
social media content
In order to keep your site visible in search engines, you have to keep your SEO up daily. The more dense the industry you work in, the harder you have to work. For example, a niche vegan eco friendly glitter company would have a great chance of being seen on the first page of search results without having to focus too much on daily SEO. BUT, a pest service, cottage baker or roofer with a lot of local competition will need to make SEO a priority.
I've been programming, designing, writing and publishing professionally online since 1995. I've worn many hats throughout my life, but the common core of my career has always been media. Besides theportfolio you see on TNW Creations, my internet presence has been substantial for over 2 decades. In 1995, while still in college, I founded TNW Creations and became part of the grassroots development for teaching the Lakhota language online. By 2004, my bilingual work was listed on many sites, including National Geographic , Encarta and Touchstone Pictures Hidalgo. When I'm not developing and writing, you'll find me managing MagicStoryLand.Com, creating kid-friendly game & video content, investigating and initating hostile website takedowns, posting salty articles about cyber threats, moderating UnifyLife.Org and enjoying my community, church & family.
