Northern Michigan Web Design Clients

Web designers commonly include a page similar to this on their websites so potential clients can sample their design skills.

What my competitors' examples lack is the second half of successful websites: the art of search engine optimization (SEO). This is the process through which web page, graphics, text and a host of other elements work together in an effort to "charm" the search engines (Google, Yahoo!, etc) into ranking them higher than other websites marketing themselves in the same line of business - or selling a similar product.

Below you'll find links to a few of my clients but, unlike others offering design services, I've also included the key search terms under which my clients want to be found in the search engines.

I invite you to both visit my clients' websites - and use the search terms cited below - entering them into Google, Bing or Yahoo. You'll see that my clients are commonly found on the first pages of search results under their requested search terms.

Use the following link for more information on the importance of search engine optimization (SEO).

 

Every Northern Michigan Web Design partner receives unrivaled attention.

"Every website deserves - and gets - 100% of my attention and efforts. I love what I do, and it's obvious to those choosing to partner with me."

Newly-launched websites experience the "Google Sandbox"

We all know that Google is the king of search engines. Each site we optimize is done so in a way which (hopefully) pleases this online giant. While your website may be up and running, Google likes to take time to evaluate its legitimacy. Google wants to be sure you'll stick around. And that you're not one of the millions of "spammers" out there. It also evaluates other factors including how and when you update your website's pages - and who else on the web decides to link to you.

This evaluation period is referred to as being in the "Google Sandbox". It takes between 3 weeks and several months to get your website out of that sandbox and ranked by Google. There's no rushing this process. There are no shortcuts. It's just one of those frustrating situations we have to deal with. For more information on this subject, visit your favorite search engine and enter the term "how long will my website be in the Google sandbox?"
