It sounds so simple. It should be easy, right? Can't I just flip a switch for them and make it happen?
Golly, I sure wish I could. But that's not how it works.
Regarding coming "up on top" for searches on google/bing,yahoo, etc. - there are a variety of factors that contribute to your ranking:
Keyword optimization - this is something I can take a look at and add to ... I can spend a couple of hours brainstorming key words and researching what words people have been using in searches to find your website. I could do my best to optimize the heck out of your site to the best of my ability. I can do this. But this is not all.
Website blog/news, and other updates - every time you publish something NEW on your website, for example, when you add some news or write a blog and press SAVE - you "republish" your website and add that new material to the world wide webs, which will be found when people search for words or topics that you've mentioned or covered. So, the more you update your site, the higher the likelihood that you'll end up in someone's google/bing search results. No time to update your website or no ideas? Then hire someone creative to do it. (ME, for example!)
..but that's not all:
Google Ads (pay per click for example) - if you want to guarantee that you will be at the tippy top of google search results - we can look into google ads - you can tell google what your budget is and they will put you at the top. For example, google has options that only make you pay when people actually click on your website link. Google has options for lot of ways to do this. It might be worth giving yourself an online advertising budget... 20 bucks a month? 100 bucks a month? ...and giving it a try.
..oh, and don't forget about:
..so, what I'm trying to say is:
So, in summary, it's a summary of efforts that'll get you to the tippy top! Starting with optimizing your keywords would be a good place to start, but that's not all. Good luck!
This project was a lot of fun! My client, Deb Voorhorst, wanted a new look, something clean, simple... We updated her logo and brand and gave her internet presence an new image!
Here's an image of her site BEFORE the re-design:
And here is the home page AFTER the re-design: (click on image to visit new site)
A new logo is always exciting. It indicates freshness, renewal, creativity, and the beginning of things to come. I very much enjoy working with client Ropes Courses, Inc. on marketing and design projects - their Sky Trail® product line has become wildly successful all over the globe, soon they will release a new model to add to the Sky Trail® family: Sky Trail® Navigator!

One of the very most important components of a successful business is having organized, beautiful marketing and communications. Dickerson's Greenhouse, is a client that has been in the process of updating their company "look" and image - they are moving toward introducing a line of products that are fun and eco-friendly and it is important for them to look professional, yet natural and earthy.
After updating their logo, one of their first steps in this process was to update their business documents as we put the marketing plans in place.
Next up - a redesign of the Dickerson's Greenhouse website to match their changing brand!
I'd like to share a brand new project just completed - the new website for Global Tracks, Inc., a company that plans international customized educational study tours.
This project was yet another collaboration between myself and my right hand man Shane Gillies of Fishgill Graphics. Thank you to Global Tracks for all of their hard work and help in making this a success! Click on the web page image to check out the new site.
Okay, okay - so, yes, she is my mother. We recently re-designed her biography flier and I thought it'd be fun to show it off! (and if anyone out there has some bare walls to fill in your home, she sells some beautiful artwork prints or originals, view her artwork here!) She also loves being hired to paint people's homes or landscapes. What a talented mother I have.
