    Default Anyone know somebody good at geting web-sites visible?

    Nobody can ever find my web site. Which I have through Go-Daddy.
    I have to figure out how to drum up more business or at least contacts.
    Any ideas....??

    I searched for Dragonfly Aero on Google and it popped right up. I searched "floatplane instruction alaska" and it doesn't come up. I type in "float plane instruction Homer" it comes right up.... I don't have any ideas to help you, but I figured I'd show you what I see on my computer.

    I used to have Go-Daddy for a website, their support seemed pretty good, they could probably help. Google has algorthims and advertising that affect how websites show up, keywords and things bump you up on the list. Nice looking website.

    Web.com offers different service levels that have different search engine exposures. They're very reasonable in my experience and offer free website design, really good tech support, and analytics.

    Drop “site.” from the links you post. Use either dragonflyaero.com or www.dragonflyaero.com. They both go to your home page. No one knows what “site.” is, will just lead to confusion.


    Your website is only a single, long page. That will be hard (read impossible) to convince Google or Bing that it has any importance.


    Google and Bing give preference to https over http. Get with your web designer/GoDaddy and make the required changes. Then change any http links to https. If you have traffic/links to your site now have http requests redirected to https so existing links don’t become dead links.


    Add to your website (in a prominent and expected location) an icon link to your company Facebook page and your company Twitter page.


    Concentrate on promoting your company Facebook page and your company Twitter page. Keep them up to date with relevant information and photos. Ask your students to post and share. You can “Boost” your Facebook page (paid advertising via Facebook) to targeted markets.


    Take a look at your successful competitors, not only in Alaska but nationwide and Canada. How are they getting the word out? What are all the different ways and places you hear about them? No reason to reinvent the wheel, emulate what they are doing.


    A company today is expected to have a website and needs to have one, but unless you are selling products, or a service that is highly desirable, a small, local company is better served concentrating on a strong social presence.


    Note: I personally don’t like social media websites, but I have learned the importance of them in business. Just keep it non-political, relevant and interesting. Photos and videos really get interest (and shares).
