Do you remember when you first came out with your website and you had such high hopes for it? Perhaps thinking or rather, dreaming that tons of people will visit your website and tell you how witty or enlightening they find your website to be? Yes, such dreams can be dreamed if you first launch a website of your very own and you do not care nor know about things like search engine ranking or link building or even search engine optimization. Yet, the sad realty is that you have over a billion other websites that are competing with you for the attention of people who are online. Take a moment and think about how big a number a billion truly is and think about how you will get your website noticed from among a billion other websites.
Nowadays, it is practically a rule of thumb that you have to have some sort of online marketing strategy so that you can have your website ranked high so that people get to see it and therefore visit it. No matter how wonderful the thoughts you have to share are, you will not get people to notice you if you do not show up in search engines. Even your site does show up and yet you rank 600th out of 700 sites, you will not find people who have the patience to go to your site. They will always go for the site that is at the number 1 ranking. But do not despair for there are ways that you can get your website to rank number 1 too. You will have to do some serious link building and hire someone who provides SEO services; with some patience and tons of hard work, your website may just make it to number 1 on search rankings after all.
