20 ways to improve your web presence

By Lerone Clarke of Clarke & Oliver Ltd.

At Clarke & Oliver PR we are constantly reminding clients of the importance of the systematic management of their web presence, and of the techniques we adopt to continue to maximize their web search results.

Web Search Engine Optimization (SEO) isn’t overly difficult, yes a little tiresome at times however, the rewards are mammoth. Essentially, it is something we should all fully understand if we want our online branches to be totally successful in reaching our intended audience.

We’ve been helping companies launch, re-launch and create effective websites for years and during that period we’ve accumulated 20 easy, practical ideas that you can work through systematically using the suggestions that you think are most relevant to your business. Some are indeed obvious, some peculiar. Some are old tried-and-tested favorites and some new tricks, several are well know techniques.

1. Share. New site launches, or new content, write an introduction and submit it to share sites like Digg, Reddit and Now Public. Submit your site to It may take a little time, but it is worth it

2. Create multiple profiles referring people to your central website. It is essential to update/post to these on a regular basis so they don’t look redundant. Try: Linkedin, a Yahoo Group, Facebook, MySpace, StumbleUpon add the most successful to your web home page. You can even place a free ad for your company on Gumtree

3. Blogs are a very easy way to ensure your name is constantly pushed up the rankings, Twitter is the most popular and/or create a Technorati account and "claim" your blog. Find quality and relevant blogs, sign-up and leave a comment (with a link back to your site!) Ask bloggers and other web site owners to review your site and/or products

4. Directories, put your site forward to free search engine friendly directories. An comprehensive list can be found here. Avoid paying to submit your site to search engines – it is a waste of money

5. Write Articles related to your site/industry and submit it to free article sites, even pitch it to industry web pages. Become a leading authority/expert in your field!

6. Friends and Colleages, do not underestimate the impact simply forwarding people to your site can have. Ask them to ‘proof read’ and ask for their valued feedback

7. Competitions, give away an iphone, it is an excellent lure to generate visitors and word-of-mouth ‘noise’ about your site
