According to Christian Arno, “There is a saying, “build it and they will come,” but this definitely doesn’t always apply to websites. The best way to get people to your website is to make sure it’s search engine optimized.”
I Discovered That My Child care Business Website Was Not SEO Friendly
Every Wednesday I plan to add new content to my childcare center website, update the calendar of events and upload new photos. After reviewing my website, I was compelled to look into upgrading my website, So I called my web hosting company.
I was not happy with the news that I received about my website. In fact, my web hosting representative told me that my website was not SEO Friendly and that’s why I was not seeing the traffic that I desired. JUST WHAT I NEEDED TO HEAR!!
Moreover, the representative told me that my website template was phased out and he was surprised that I was still using that plan. Well, I know why….It’s because I was only paying $5 a month for web hosting. In other words, I was being cheap and trying to save my business money!
However, after our conversation, I realized that creating a SEO Friendly website was more important than saving money on webs hosting. In fact, I asked the representative for the best package available, so that I can upgrade my website with 7-days, create an SEO Friendly website and begin to attract more parents to my site!
I love adding content to my websites and sharing business tips via blogging, however, I will be the first to admit that I did not know what SEO meant. So I did a little research and I want to share what I discovered with you. (Just in case you didn’t know)
Wikipedia defines SEO (Search Engine Optimization) as: “Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine’s “natural” or un-paid (“organic” or “algorithmic”) search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search, academic search, news search and industry-specific vertical search engines.
Now that you have the facts about SEO, I hope that you have been compelled to find out if your website is SEO friendly, because your enrollment and online visibility depends on it!
