You can improve the visibility of your website in search engines, below you find some easy ‘do it yourself’ SEO tips.
1. Provide clear content (texts), and use keywords that relate to your ‘business’. Also use synonyms, for example: you rent gîtes in France, use in your text not only the word ‘gîte’, but also the words: holiday home, rental, cottage, accommodation etc.
2. Get ‘backlinks’, these are links from other websites to your website. Look for online business directories where your website can be included, ask your friends/family members with website to link to your site etc. You can also start a blog with interesting content, other websites may be willing to link to this content…
3. Keep your website up to date. Google likes ‘fresh’ content, so it helps if you regularly update the content of your website. If this is not really handy because your texts are static you can start a Blog where you regularly post a blog article with ‘news’.
