We often get asked by clients what can they can do to promote their own site and we grew a list that was worked on by a few of us to eventually produced a document of tasks a new website owner could do themselves to ensure their site is a success, I hope this list can be of help to current and future clients.
A lot of the tasks below are performed by us when we promote your website during our Search Engine Optimisation package but you can easily perform most of these tasks yourself, some of them involve a long term effort, like posting on your blog regularly, and that is something only you can do effectively.
Delivering delicious websites affordably
The above 3 search engines control such a high percentage of search traffic you can almost ignore any of the other minor ones, but watch this space as nothing lasts forever. in 1995 the big names on the Internet included Freeserve, AOL and Compuserve, now none are around or at least not popular, so by that reckoning there may be other big players in 2025 and Google, Facebook, Twitter and Yahoo may not be around or may not be as popular as they are now.
