Search engines to Website.

Have jumped in with both size elevens and done myself a web page for my indy driving school and paid around 70 quid for it.However when I asked my Dad to have a look at it on his computer, he sticks it in the google bar and the result is zilch.Whats the easiest and cheapest way to tie the website to the popular search engines?
Google ad words wanted nearly £300.
Cheers for all the other advice on advertising and working part time.Doing a leaflet run tomorrow.

Re: Search engines to Website.

Your site will take a while to be trawled by the search engines, there are free submission sites you can use to alert the search engines, I think google has a page on their site as well, been a while since I did it.

Add a link to your site in your signature as well as it will be picked up by the search engine spiders when they visit this site.

Re: Search engines to Website.

Register yourself with google and then submit your page via their webmaster tools.  Use other freely available tools to check your meta tags, word counts etc.  Once its been submitted to google you have to wait for a while for them to start listing, in the mean time you should include your site on as many driving instructor forum / listings as possible.  I built my own basic website submitted to google and then added it to sites as recommended.  Within 10 days I've had 2 pupils enquiries and my website is on page 1 or 2 dependant on what is searched for.  All at no cost except my time.

Perfect advice smile

Here's a list of loads of driving instructor directories you can list yourself on (and get backlinks from) for FREE - some will ask for reciprocal links, but most of these won't;

http://schoolofeverything.com/ (anyone who teaches ANY subject can sign up for free – you sign up in your name, rather than your driving school name, but you can add a link to your website)

http://www.drivinginstructorsguide.com/

http://driving-schools.co.uk/advertise.html

http://www.drivingschools101.co.uk/page … ce_id=2179

http://www.findadrivinginstructor.com/ (another one where you list yourself rather than your school name)

http://findadrivingschool.com/

http://www.misscar.co.uk/

http://www.findinstructors.drivinglessons4u.co.uk/


The following sites will require a reciprocal link if you want them to list your website;

http://www.drivinginstructors4u.co.uk/index.htm

http://www.drivinglesson.biz/submit.php?c=144

http://www.driving-test-success.com/contact/contact.htm

http://www.freeindex.co.uk/signup.htm

http://www.learnertalk.co.uk/forum/view … f36568ad6b

http://www.localinstructor.org/directory_app.htm

http://www.2passdirectory.co.uk/


It's a lot of effort to get listed on that lot - but it's worth it as Search Engines like backlinks.

I have never listed my site anywhere that asks for payment...AVOID "business directories" like the plague (apart from FreeIndex which I've listed above who are great!) - once some of these people get hold of your contact details, they'll never leave you alone trying to sell you "upgraded" listings and promising the earth (all nonsense) - AVOID THE FOLLOWING COMPANIES ESPECIALLY AS THEY'RE THE WORST OF ALL - ufindus, BT Customer Street, SmileLocal & MoreUK - they're all the same company under different names and they are notorious for their persistence and hard sell.

There's more you can do, but if you follow Lucky245's advice (and mine) you'll be off to a good start smile

Shout if you need any more SEO advice smile

Re: Search engines to Website.

Google ad words wanted nearly £300.

If you set up your own adwords campaign,you only pay £5 set up fee to Google and you can then set your own daily budget.
Beware of companies that offer to run your adwords campaign for you-this may be where you have got this £300 figure from.
A well run adwords campaign should only cost about £5 per week-just make sure you set it up so your ads only show in your local area.
Also make sure you sumbit a listing to Google Local.

Re: Search engines to Website.

Brilliant advice guys!This is going to help me sort out what was appearing to be an expensive minefield. Who would of thought that becoming a Driving Instructor would mean becoming a whizz on the computer too! Thankyou all for taking the time to post your help and advice.

Re: Search engines to Website.

Google decides if it will display your page and how high it will get based on 200 different criteria. They don't tell us what the criteria are but here are a few basic things that get a website noticed.

1) Your page must be written to comply with standards. Known as W3C. Even a good W3C site still might not work well in internet explorer but that's another tale.

2) Decide upon your keywords and write keyword rich content.

3) Make sure your keywords are reflected in titles and meta tags.

4) Get lots of links to your site but be careful of those in 'bad neighbourhoods'. This is where a trail of links lead to sites you wouldn't want to be linked with. We recently removed our Amazon shop because there were links to porn sites embedded in the Amazon product descriptions. Amazon haven't responded to my e-mails so I don't know why.

5) Time, yes wait and wait. We have a new site running and it is getting page 2 but Google hasn't ranked it yet and we have no information in the webmaster tools despite the crawl rate being high.

6) Get a high page rank. The Google algorithm for page rank. It's a secret so all you can do is follow net geek folklore and design your site around it.

7) Make sure your web space is well structured with a robots file and sitemap.

If this all sounds like double dutch you may have to pay for a well optimised website or learn a lot. Only a few years ago Instructors paid thousands a year for yellow pages adverts. As more people try to compete for the same space on search engines web services will have to be paid for as a marketing cost.

Re: Search engines to Website.

Hi I am affraid i must disagree with some of the comments you have posted there Colin, W3C is not complient with all websites at all. It is a standard that is hoped will be accepted by all designers - however it is not enforced and not something that the search engines insist on. I can prove this as my own site keppy.co.uk is currently page 1 6th listing down when searched for "web design north lincs". a month or so ago it was number 1, a few weeks ago it was on page 2.

Another thing to remember and its quite important is the use of 'free' website creators, especially the ones that place 'google adwords' in a banner at the bottom of the pages. These are rubbish and if you look at any site using these adwords carefully. They are advertising competition direct to the visitors that you have tried sooooo hard to get to click into your site....why??

You wouldnt put a competetors sticker on the bumber of your learner car would you..??
So why have them on yoru website.?

The main thing i think is the old addage - nothing is free, really.

Its all down to the titles of your web pages. As you will see if you searched for my listing under "web design north lincs" in google, those are the words that are highlighted and those are the words that have been picked up. Search again with the words "web graphic design north lincs" and the result is 4th on the 1st page.

adding external links to your pages are sites is also a major error, unless you are referencing a car dealer or somethign like that.

There is also no time to sit and wait about having a good web designer to set these page titles and picking your best page title information is the way forward as well as getting your desiger to submit the site to google from the top level - the web servers themselves.

I am in the process of creating a directory that will work, all the directories i have come across so far that are supposed to be tailored towards Driving Instructors always seem to have a driving business at the back of it, so in effect they are just pushing their own products at your advertising expense.

Listing on the right directory works becasue not only have you got the keywords from the site themselves but also through your own listing on the site your company and location are also linked. For example I have a new wedding directory set up 1st november. Search google for "kingstown wedding piper" and not only does the company come up top of the page for "kingstown pipers" but also in 3rd position they are also picked up on the said wedding directory for the word "wedding" and its directly pulled up this companies own page on the site.

If anyone is interested in advertising with banners, full page advert and a directory listing please email me as this site will be purely dedicated to your bussiness and everyone will be treated equally you can garantee everyone receives the same service - without there being the site creators products and services to push, which in most cases are driving / learner driver related.

cheers

Re: Search engines to Website.

My point about standards compliance Kep is that robots are simple beasts and when looking through sites it is easier for them if they can understand what they are reading. It doesn't mean you get low search results unless a better optimised site comes along and beats you. There are some pretty appalling sites that achieve high results but this is the mystery of optimisation.

Google say there are 200 factors that go towards a search result. Making the page understandable to robots gives more of a chance these 200 factors are considered.

Re: Search engines to Website.

Getting listed on search engines is pretty easy, search engines want to list you, they come looking! There's little point in wasting your time submitting your web site to every search engine you can find. However there are a couple of places you should submit your web site to.

   1. Submit your web site to http://www.dmoz.org/. Make sure you submit your site in the most appropriate category. For driving schools this is probably something like 'Top: Regional: Europe: United Kingdom: England (or Scotland or Wales or Northern Ireland): Your County: Your Town'. Once you've found the best category click on the 'Suggest URL' link at the top of the page and follow the instructions. DMOZ is human edited so it can take several weeks before your site is listed. Many, many, many of the top search engines use DMOZ's listings, you really want to be listed here so follow their rules!
   2. Google Local/Maps is also worth submitting your site to, these results often appear first when people use Google to search for 'driving lessons town name'. Go to http://maps.google.co.uk/ and click the 'Put your business on Google Maps' link on the left. You'll need to sign up for a free Google account if you don't already have one.
