a plumber or lawyer)....slowly but surely your search engine
rankings are dropping. We have a proven method of

Google Search Engine Rankings
Need More Stuff:
For our purposes, we'll be examining
Google web site rankings. It is essential and vital to the
welfare of your business web site, that you make changes by
updating your home page with fresh content, running specials,
updating information - at least on a quarterly basis. Maclin Solutions is once again
requesting that you update your home page
information on a routine basis.
Search Engines Are Passing You
By supplying your webmaster
with fresh or rich content for the home page, your site will
increase in search engine rankings. Search engine robots
are always on the hunt for new content and changes each time
they visit your site. Many times though they stop at
your site - see that there is no change - and move quickly on
to the next site. There is nothing new posted that will
help increase your ranking.
The Great Importance of Fresh
Content Versus Stagnation:
Without making changes by add
content, deleting or editing information contained on your
home page and subsequent pages, the search engine stops
to visit less and less. This leads to site stagnation - and
greatly decreases your site's performance and rankings.
Google Rankings are
Different - Site Popularity:
Your Google ranking is based largely
upon your "site's popularity".
It wages its rankings by how many
viewers are referred to your site from other, external links
where your site link is found. For instance, your chamber of
commerce link would prove valuable as it is popular (used by
many) and generates new visitors (prospective customers) to
your web site.
Diversity Your Business - Be Seen
Having links created externally that
lead viewers to your web site is highly successful and makes
your site popular with the search engines. Create a
YouTube video, begin a facebook page, join an
industry-specific forum, write articles and the vast majority
of these avenues are free. Free is good!
The Solution is Easy -
Supply Related-Content Regularly:
Remember that fresh content
becomes "old" content and the rankings attained over a period
of months will suffer unless the process of refreshing the
content continues. Make a calendar note for every other
month or a quarterly reminder and send new, related content to
your webmaster regularly - for the life of your web site.
