I want to rank 1st on Google for “my keywords”

We probably all wish to achieve it, to be ranked first on Google (and other Search Engines) for our desired industry related “obvious keywords”. Say you were a eCommerce retailer of shoes for runners, an obvious example would be a desire to rank at the top of Google for the keywords “running shoes”.

However, the feat of taking your small business or new website rankings from +50 to 1st on Google would take tremendous effort, expense and time. So getting well ranked for a competitive term such as “running shoes” (when you are up against brands like Nike, Asics etc) would be, well tough to say the least!

Instead, there are actually more beneficial ways to target your audience and potential customers with your website SEO, by using what SEO folk label “Long Tail Keywords”.

A Company Brand – what does that really mean?

The word “Brand” is one of those terms widely used, and often mistakenly so. Many Small Business owners we work with consider their company “Logo” as being the extent of their brand, but a company Brand is so much more than this!
