Getting your website seen

Hi - what's the best way, or who are the best people to go to to get your website listing at the top of a search bar, what search bar is the most popular to use? I've created a website through WEBS but need to get viewed and not computer literate so if anyone knows someone who is reasonably priced.

Jump onto Google and type in "SEO". It's all about keywords. It takes a bit of work, and there's no easy way to do it. At the end of the day, it's not always possible to get to the top, but you can usually get to the first page pretty easily.

You can hire businesses to do it for you, but it's not cheap.

Google also re-ranks websites that use the tricks a lot, right back to the bottom.
Genuine popular is the only real way to be at the top consistantly

Its not only seo but you also need to drive traffic to your website as well.
you can have the best website in the world but without traffice nobody will see it.

Business cards dropped at every business you visit.
Friends handing out a few cards.
Facebook & Twitter links/pages (they can be set to feed each other from comments).

As it is an overseas system, it may have trouble being found by default as a NZ website by some search engines. This is why you are best to go to a web designer if you are setting up a business website.

Advertising it on TV works.

A domian name with your niche included is also a good idea

I dont think it matters where you get your site made it is the Domain name and good content that will get it listed on the search engines also good backlinks help.

I have had websites hosted in USA with dot com or dot net domains on the first page of Google even now with amazon products I can get page 1 rankings

Check out Google's Webmaster Tools. Fantastic tool and quite powerful :)

Server doesn't matter, it's all about the keywords.
