I was just checking out a quick query/search on Google for one of my target markets and search phrases and we’re #1. Well, that’s the good news. But there’s more news – and I’m not sure if it’s good or bad. But it’s news.
So, I’m a web designer/web developer and I know SEO. You know, that pretty much puts to bed what I was about to point out. I’ll continue on anyway though. It just goes to show you that there are a number of skill levels and skill sets out there. So I’m looking at page 1 and the normal collection of Manta, AngiesList, etc – basically directories pointing to directories of web site builders/developers – thanks Google – as always, I go to a search engine to find a COMPANY, NOT another list of lists… But Lizardwebs is coming up first, so I can gripe only SO much.
Get through page 1 and on the top of page 2, what do I find? A web design company ranked on the top of page 2 on a Facebook page. Seriously? You’re a web design company, thus it DOESN’T cost you anything to DO your own site except some time.. and you can’t outrank your own FACEBOOK page? Looked back to page 1 to verify, and, nope – not a single listing for the company.
What does this mean for someone that wants a website? It supports my long held notion that web designers make pretty pictures, web developers make it work and SEO people get it found. Now, when you have the trifecta – a company that can make pretty pictures, make it work AND get it FOUND? You need to call THEM when you’re ready for your next website. That would be us.
