  • Hi,
    In order to get yoru website to appear in internet searches quickly you could use Google Ads. You set a daily budget, once that is spent your ads dissapear till the next day.
    To get the website to appear organically you need to implement search engine optimisation (SEO). This takes time (many months), but gives long term value. The basics as how to do that can be found here: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/7451184?hl=en
    A more indepth guide for NZ can be found in the following book (which I wrote) https://www.fishpond.co.nz/Books/How-to-Get-to-Top-of-Google-Search-Richard-Conway/9780143773535
    There are plenty of other ways to get traffic (social media etc..) depends on what your business does. Do yopu want to share the website address?

    Hi There

    Thanks for your question. There are many ways to direct more traffic to your site.

    The best ones I would recommend are
    SEO – Search Engine Optimisation
    Use of Social Media (Influencers depending on what your selling, Hashtags, Creative Images)
    Google Advertising
    Facebook Advertising

    Facebook Advertising and Google Advertising is extremely budget-friendly as you can choose how much or how little you want to spend each day. You can also be extremely specific or broader in the demographics and audiences you want to target so it is a great option.

    SEO helps with your ranking on Google and helps drive traffic and potential conversions to your site. Here is an article explaining a little bit more about it https://pureseo.com/nz/seo?gclid=CjwKCAjw1ej5BRBhEiwAfHyh1AmDY8EU-2-z5V8YzkEWa8W5glunayKhZp7Q2WUCiQvDQl2qL0ThxRoCfzMQAvD_BwE

    In this day in age, social media is vital for businesses to be active on. Organically, you can grow a good following of people on your platforms which can also become potential customers/clients. Creative Images, a theme, and good captions/hashtags can help with this and overall drive traffic and potential conversions to your store.

    Again all of these would depend on what you are selling/providing to customers but these are great options in order to gain more website traffic and potential sales/clients.

    Hope this is helpful. Any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me 🙂
