Default Getting started with optimizing your site

Ask yourself a simple question, if you were looking for a company like your's, what words or phrases would you type into Google or Yahoo, etc. to find it?

If you search on "trucking company" you'd find 10 million results in America. If you search on "trucking company, MyTown, Nebraska," you'd narrow it down and have more luck.

Ask friends, business associates, relatives and your customers what terms they would use. Free research.

Spend some money to hire a pro. It'll pay off in the long run, but if anyone "guarantees" first place positioning or "X" amount of leads per month, walk away. They're phonies.

Spend time on this forum and places like searchenginewatch.com to learn a bit more about how to increase traffic to your site. It's an inexact science, but critical to your success on the web.

Hey Michel

These may seem to be a pretty old post but I just want to add some new information regarding this:

The Trucking business is shows a high amount in search and the word “truck finder” can be broad. I’ve seen a medium search clicks and has around 9,900 searches a month.

You may want to delve in the specifics of what your trucking business can transport. With using the specifics like “food truck finder”, people will know what Truck transportation business focuses on the products they want to be transferred from point A to point B.

Make sure before entering into any SEO battle, be sure to know which battle gives you the most leverage.

These long tailed keywords will eventually pull your website up for “trucking business” eventually – since these keywords are INSIDE the long tailed keywords. However be aware that this will take you quite a while so you need to be consistent with what you do.

In the meantime, here’s some suggestions that I highly recommend that you can also do to get your website in the organic searches.

1. Add in a blog in your website. Mention about the prices, where can you go, how long does the usual delivery take, what are the warranties you can give your customer.– the more Google will know that you are indeed an authority of your market niche in your website.

2. Add in a metadescription of 150 characters about your website.

3. Increase your Social presence by having a twitter and Facebook page for your site.

4. Add in more real life sample pictures of the signages that you’ve already made.

Hope I was able to shed more specific light on your SEO dilemma. Have a great weekend ahead Michel

The best way to do it is to go to social media, forums that highlights your business. Promote your site through these media and for sure there will be a lot of people who will be interested to look into your site. Promote by using words that strongly encapsulates what your marketing.

If you want to display your keyword in search engine then firstly you have to do on-page optimization or keyword insert in meta title, meta description, meta keywords and after that do off-page optimization i.e social bookmarking, classified, buisness listing, forum, directories with this keyword.

You can develop a static website in some important pages like contact us and one landing page if you want to keep track record of the visitors. you can add a blog page in where you can post some news or discounts or some announcements which will help a lot in getting rank to your website.

You can publish your links to classified ads, web directories, social bookmarks, and press releases under the Truckers / Trucks category. This narrow down things and get the right customers.
