If you don't have a free google webmaster tools account setup then now is the time to have one setup.  It's free and provide a wealth of information about your website and how it's seen on the internet.  Go here to setup your own free account: /webmasters/ .  Once you have your site setup, don't forget to link your website sitemap to the google tools.  To do this, on eDirectHost, click on the marketing icon on the main admin page and then click on "Generate Sitemap" option under the search engine heading.  It's about the 5th item down and then scroll down to create your sitemap.  you will then take this link and copy/paste it over to google webmaster tools.  let us know if you have any problems setting it up.

If you want to move up in the search engines then you need links pointing to your website.  The links can be from a website as a text link or within facebook or twitter.  Lately it's been shown that social media links are worth more than website links.  So if your a heavy facebook or twitter user then start sending some links back to your website.  Blogs are another way to link back to your website.  If you can include your key word within the link then the link will be worth 10x more.  For instance I can have a link that looks like www.edirecthost.com or I can have a link that looks like "ecommerce website builder", the ecommerce website builder link is worth much more than just the edirecthost link.  So if you want to help your website move up in the search engines, start getting links on other websites, blogs, facebook, twitter or even directory listings.

One good place to start would be to comment on this blog about the article and then add your website link within the comment that links back to your site.  So what are you waiting for, lets start getting your website moving up.

To submit your website for FREE to the search engines, click on the "admin" tab on the very top of your screen.  Then click on the "Marketing" icon on the far right.  In here click on "Search Engine Submission" icon on the bottom right of the screen.  The icon has a big "+" sign on it.  Then below to the right you will see an option to "submit your site", click on this to submit the website.  It does take a few weeks for the search engines to pick you up.
