Tag Images

Get Google+

Setting up a Google+ page for your business is a great and easy idea. Doing this will help with those keywords that you use for targeting localised searches, while also building that all important trust with Google. Some SEO commentators are saying that Google+ could eventually become the new Google.

You can get advice straight from the horse’s mouth. You can get great advice from Google for example by checking out their Webmaster Help Videos and Webmaster Guidelines.

Use All The Tools

Make sure that you set-up and use the Webmaster Tool. This will for example allow Google to let you know if they have any problems when they crawl your website.
