At least once a week I go online and search the different search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo for my company name. You might wonder why but I have found that the more I search for my company name the more I find forgotten ads that I placed in various locations that need updating or just checking that they are sending the search engines to me.
As you might all be fully aware when you update your ads or profiles on freelance sites other any other listings the search engines will pick them up as new listings and put them in their new listings search. In most cases your listing can start to move up the search list and appear in the first 10 pages of searches.
The more you get your name out there and the keywords for the search engines the more chance you get of appearing in the top pages of the search engines. It’s best to dedicate at least a couple of hours a week at the least and do some updates and make sure your web links, email address and other track backs are all pointing to you and your business. The more exposure the better.
