Google not indexing your company name? Do you get "Did You Mean"

Here is an example:

Googles Did You Mean Script

Recently, we were asked why Googles "Did You Mean" showed a different result for a company name when they Google their company name. With a little research this is what we found out.

Google uses spell checking software to check queries, ie (cennethelp) against common spellings of each word. When Google determines an alternative query that they think might improve the search results, you'll see "Did you mean: (more common spelling)" at the top of your search results page. This happens when a site has no relevance, no direct entries into Google and no dictionary reference for that specific word and not enough backlinks to the site.

SEO Strategy for Google Indexing Description Tag Problem

Google Indexing your Footer CopyrightHave you ever checked your index within the search engines by typing in the Google search bar "site:yoursite.com" and found your footer/copyright as the text being shown as the description within your returned result?

Why does this happen? This happens sometimes because search engines either take the first paragraph that it comes across starting at the top of the site or at the bottom of the site and index the content it finds.

So, its very important the first paragraph and bottom content are SEO optimized. To avoid my irrelevant site copyright, address and phone number from the footer getting indexed, I had 2 choices.

"How It's Actually Possible To Rank Better Than #1 In Google And Yahoo - Overnight!"

Drive Traffic Now to your WebsiteBefore I begin, I'd like to tell you the reason I chose "this" specific topic to teach you.

If it isn't enough to rank #1 in Google in less than 28 days, I'm going to teach you how you can actually rank better than #1 in both Google AND Yahoo, overnight! Yeah, I can hear you now...

Why do YOU need to Blog?

Why you need to blogOn a daily basis I get asked why blogging is so important. Many SEO Specialists have written articles on this very topic all claiming the same thing expecting you to take their word for it. For example, back in Dec of 2008 (on Google Knol which is no longer available) I wrote a small article on "Why Blogging is so Important" in which I gave a pretty good explanation as to why each website needs one. This article had gotten quite a few hits with no visible or mentionable results other than providing the reader with a good reason to start blogging.

However, telling you why you need to blog is a tad bit different then showing you why you need to blog. So in this article on "Why do YOU need to blog" I will show you actual results that will clearly show the benefits of blogging on your website.

How do I find the right keywords for my website or web page

How do I get the keywords for my site or web pageThere are three general ways that people search for something they need or want. They open up their browser, go to Google, Yahoo or Bing and they either type in a keyword, keyword string or they ask the search engines a question.

Keywords Strings are the #1 determining component of a successful returned result from the search engines. Questions would be #2 and a single keyword would be next in line.

Example of what someone would type if they were looking for boots:

  1. Keyword - boots
  2. Keyword String (also knows as keyword phrase) - red leather boots
  3. Keyword Question - where can I buy red leather boots in kansas city

Never piss off a Search Engine Optimization Specialist

SEO SpecialistMy phone rings and on the other end of the phone is a panicky voice. Melissa (name changed out of respect) tells me how they hired a local SEO firm to help drive traffic and increase page rank. She was blunt force honest with me and told me that she didn't always pay him on time and she told me on occasion when she didn't get her way she would insult him telling him that SEO guys are a dime a dozen and on occasion gave him unrealistic expectations. Though this kind of honesty is rare I just sat there and listened to her story.

She did tell me that he was occasionally late in calling her when he was supposed to and even sometimes he didn't get to her site in days. So between her threats and degrading comments and his lack of "on-time" response, they decided to part company and Melissa ended up doing a charge back on him.
