Have you audited your website recently?
You’ve got a beautiful shiny website, you’re promoting it like crazy but why aren’t you showing in search engines?
Sometimes when your focussed on making your website look fantastic some of the really important behind the scenes things like header tags, meta descriptions and image optimisation can slip through the net. So, your website may be beautiful to look at but that’s no good for search engines as the behind the scenes parts are imperative for your rankings. Many web designers will create you a lovely all singing and all dancing website but aren’t SEO experts, so don’t assume that they are or that they have optimised your website at all.
