Hi all,

Right so my Uncle has asked me to try and get his website higher on the search engines list, especially google and yahoo for obvious reasons becuase they are the biggest.

How do i go about doing this? His website is www.bushwisesafaris.com if u could take a look and maybe see where it is going wrong that would be great. As a lodge, getting internet traffic is one of the biggest ways to get clients from around the world interested and booking so this is a huge thing so I really would appreciatte the help on it.

I have also just started designing a secondary website for it which is @ www.safarisouthafrica.co.uk. Any tips I can add in from the start of the design before I go any further for search engine optimisation would be great once again.

Thanks all!
Colin.

Plugging websites isn't generally allowed, but here's the deal:

His website is already ranked 4/10 on Google importance, which is pretty good considering how many he's up against. The keywords for indexing are already in place. The only thing that will help him out is if people searching find his resort of more interest than the others. It's all marketing competition from here on out. The site looks good, he just has to be sure he has a better deal and better accomodations than everyone else. There is a lot of competition out there!


Or, he can BUY higher rankings, which I'm sure he doesn't want to do.

edit: a google search for 'african bush safari' he hits at number 9. Do the same search and see what comes up in the headers for the other 8 that might be more tempting for tourists.

engine optimisation is generally based on 3 things: content, linkbacks (including anchor text), and internal construction (and how that's also anchored).

Google importance? Buying higher rankings? :confused:

To be honest the best way to get a small site noticed among all the crap Google puts out is to invest in Adwords (google.com/adwords) :)
