Here is how to let people know about you
I love to talk about cooking. I had a blog on one of these sites where you can create one, but I was not happy about them having control of the look and content of the posts. I wanted to have more to say and really wanted to make sure that the way that my posts looked reflected me. It just made sense.
I decided to start my own website, which I knew that I could control and determine what would appear there. I wanted it to be a site I was proud of, and it just made sense. I had even thought I could make a little money on advertising there. It sounded like a great idea.
I was going to be really smart about it as well. I would build my site, but still post on the other blog site at first. I would let people know that they could find more of my content on my own site, and this way I could lead my previous readers to the new site. It was brilliant.
In a few weeks, people stopped going to the blog site and came to mine directly, but I saw that my numbers did not increase at all. I actually had fewer readers after some time and did not get it. My site was great looking, easy to get around, and I had the same great content I had always had. I have good recipes, and people loved reading them on the other blog site. I didn’t understand why they would not come to me directly.
I almost gave up on the site all together, thinking it made more sense to just go back to the blog site when a person showed me something one day. She did a search of my site on the internet and I was nowhere to be found. She then pointed out to me that this was my problem. I was not appealing to the search engines. She then pointed out that I needed to look for a company that did SEO Montreal.
I found one that did some work to help promote my site by optimizing it for the search engines. In a matter of a few weeks I was starting to see a lot more traffic to my site. It was a major blessing for me for sure.
