Getting Your Site Noticed

January 26, 2008 by Jim Weisz

So you have a website but you aren’t getting and hits to your website. My first recommendation is Pay-Per-Click advertising since it’s the fastest and can yield the best results. If you’re looking to do it the old-fashioned way here are a few websites that can assist with your submitting your website to the various search engines. Just remember, since most are free, they aren’t guaranteed to work and it will take some time (4-6 weeks, at least) for your site to start showing up (for both paid & free submission). Also, don’t submit your website to the same search engine more than once a month…otherwise the search engine may consider you a spammer and it may affect your search engine position.

Website Review

http://www.digitalmusicent.net

Good:

Clean & professional look/design.
Good color scheme.
DJ Intelligence pages look good and blend in well with your website.
Suggestions:

No location anywhere on the home page (city or state)….add both somewhere.
How about some bio information on the About Us page?
In your e-mail you gave me the website www.digitalmusicent.net and the e-mail on your website is .net. However, it seems that you own the .com. Any reason why you promote/use the .net more than the .com? Unless you have a really good reason you should switch to the .com as it’s more memorable.
Testimonials page makes it look like you don’t DJ very much. Can you get 3-4 more on there?
You could use some text on the Events page.
It seems like weddings are your main focus-why no weddings page? The website seems geared toward weddings so it seems weird there isn’t a page dedicated to that type of event.
A footer at the bottom of your pages with your contact info and maybe the links to the various pages would be a good addition.
