So you’ve been told your site needs some SEO. Why?

You Google search for your product’s keywords or simply your company name and it does not appear on the first page of Google results.

Hence your customers can’t find your site and services and you lose business.

So why does Google give you such a poor pagerank? Go check it on Is it zero? I thought so.

Your site is probably both:

How can you tell your site is badly coded? Simply run over every page. Errors? Well fix them! Make your pages HTML5 compliant.

As for lacking information, the Web is all about information. Not whizzy flash bang graphics. If your site is information dense and relevant, your pagerank will rise.

If you sell a product or service, show that you are the expert by demonstrating how much you know about it in a clear and concise manner.

Does you page look intelligible? Can you see all your keywords on the text output? See for example my homepage and compare to your site.
