Improve Your Website's Google Ranking by Listing on a Marketplace


Improve Your Website's Google Ranking by Listing on a Marketplace

All the experts have advised you to get a website for your business, but you may still find yourself with a website that gets no traffic from Google, Bing or any other search engine. 


As with everything, there is work that needs to be done on your website for it to be recommended by search engines for specific queries and keywords. 


Your website needs to be improved for it to start ranking. Here are three ways you can do this: 


  1. Assess your current website 

The very first step that you need to take is to assess your website. When assessing your website there are a number of factors that you need to look out for, including:

  • Mobile friendliness: Does your website display well on mobile and can your target market interact with your website easily. Is the text too big or too small? Also check where the website can be improved from a mobile perspective. 

  • Speed: The speed of a website is important. If your website is slow, visitors are more likely to leave your website. 

  • Links: Links tell search engines or any crawler what a page or website is about. If search engines like Google can not tell what your page is about, the likelihood of it ranking is very slim. Check all links and assess that they are clear.

  • Design: How your website is designed is important for user experience (UX) but it is also important for how search engines will crawl your website. 


It is advisable that you get a web developer and web designer to help you work on your website. A web designer works on the visual aspects of your website and user experience, while a web developer builds the structure of the site using code. Both are able to ensure you have a website that works; one that is designed for both the user’s perspective and functionality.

  1. Start optimising your website for search

If your website is not optimised for search, nobody on the face of the earth will be able to find it. 


Invest in Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). SEO is an attempt to improve websites to make them appear in a high position in the organic search  results. There are two ways in which you can invest in SEO and that is through an SEO Tool or securing the services of a professional. 

  • SEO Tools: There are a number of SEO tools available that can give recommendations for how best to optimise your website. 

  • Professional services: Professional SEO experts are able to look at your website and create a SEO strategy that works. They, unlike SEO tools, will be able to implement practices that can improve your website's SEO.

  1. List in a directory

One of the most important factors that contribute to search visibility and ranking is back links which ensure that Google is able to crawl your website. Back links are, according to Backlinko, links from one website to a page on another website. Backlinko further cites that search engines view backlinks as a vote of credibility for that particular page. Pages with high quality backlinks are likely to rank higher on organic search results. 


Listing on a marketplace is one of the best ways to get credible back links for your website. Most marketplaces offer you an opportunity to link to your business website. When quality websites link to your website, Google and other search engines views the link as a sign of credibility.
