Big Empty Houses they make look absolutely magnificent on the outside as you drive up those long driveways with stones that go crackle crackle under your car tyres (Well in the Movies it’s like that) As you step up to the huge double front doors and insert the key you can hear the tumblers turn and a echoing, you feel a creaking as the door opens.
Once inside you walk across the polished wooden floors and each step is like a team of dancers are following you, you look around and all you see is space and you have to use your imagination on where you could place your favourite sofa, where’s the closest plug for that lamp that shines a light for all to see.
Yes a Big House may look grand, but with no furniture, no people, no cat or dog, kids, The House? Is Silent.
Is your website really just a Big Empty House?
Ha ha you were wondering when I would get to the story behind this blog huh?
Big Huge Websites with no real content, no comfy sofa, are oh so silent as nobody visits them. You have to open up the doors and windows, spruce the place up a bit, fill the place with joy and laughter make it interesting, throw yourself a “Web Warming” party, make your site an Open house!
Building the website in all its glory is not going to do it, that’s just a big empty house so to make sure it doesn’t become silent, what are we going to do? Well I’m glad you asked that question and the answer is? SEO, or we can use its proper term, Search Engine Optimisation.
Why do you need SEO? Well without it you end up in the biggest house with the most silence and that house lives on page 2, 3 and 10,000 of Google!
If you’re going to fill your big house website up, to avoid moving to page 2 or 3 street of Google and the dreaded sounds of silence what do you need to do? What are the Comfy Sofa, Cat, Dog or kids you need?
Blogs, Back links, News, Social Media, Meta Tags, Keywords yep get the big SEO moving truck to load up with these and arrive at your front door and start filling that big old website up with action and then the sounds of silence? Will be replaced with a deafening ROAR.
Unless you want to have a bad back lifting all the furniture yourself? You may want to look at getting a professional SEO moving Company to help you, let them do the heavy lifting and you just take care of your new house guests.
Enjoy the day and remember no Second Chance on a First Impression, so your website? Sexy it UP!
