The Google Challenge

When was the last time you Googled your product, service or ┬ábusiness? Well if it’s been awhile or if you never have, give it a shot. Click this link (opens Google.com in a new window) and google your service or product. Like what you see? Are you on the first page? The second? The third? Statistics show people typically don’t go past page three in their search results before they try something else.

If you didn’t make the top three pages you are missing out on some seriously sweet “free ad” space. Great google search placement can be a lot of work, but it’s not rocket science. One of the key pieces to getting a great site ranking is having other web sites link back to your site or domain name. If you don’t already have a Facebook page or a Twitter account, the link back to your site should be reason enough to jump into the social media pool.
