When you launch a new website there are a few really important things you must do to ensure you give yourself the best possible chance of getting found online.
If you take a website from us we do all of this for you but if not this is what you should always do.
1. Tell Google - you can submit your website to Google using what used to called webmaster tools, it's now called search console. You can submit your site map and make sure Google knows about every page on your new website. Search console also provides a vast array of information and advice to help you constantly improve.
2. Meta Data - meta data is used to describe what each page is about to search engines and is vital to getting found. If you aren't sure what you need to be putting in meta data, Google have some great guidelines to help, see here.
3. Google Maps - If you do business locally then you need to add your business to googles directory. Local listings are really important in search engines, if you search for a service locally Google will pick up your location and provide you with the closest most relevant results. It's simple and only takes 5 minutes to setup, click here for more information.
4. Marketing - Your website is now live but how are you going to market it? Search engine optimisation? Direct mail? It doesn't matter what type of marketing you do but if want visitors you need to tell people about it. Just simply putting your website live doesn't mean people will find it!
5. Google Analytics - if you want to know who's looked at your then you need google analytics, it's free and will give more information than you can handle including demographics, acquisitions and more.

I created my business around 6 months ago with very little capital but needed a website to help market. I was actually recommended Cloud Web Solutions and from day 1 I've had the most amazing experience. Not only was my website designed to a high standard, I pay a monthly direct debit that has helped in my first year. I also know after 2 years, I can rebrand and keep my costs. Jack has been fantastic, and would recommend all businesses to use this fantastic service. I will also add, all my queries and requests are always dealt with very quickly and extremely professionally.
I find Cloud Web Solutions very professional and committed to delivering a first rate service to their customers. Jack's attention to detail and understanding of what the client needs together with his patience with the fine tuning process is a refreshing change to my past experience with website developers. I would definitely recommend Cloud Web Solutions for a first class service whatever the size of your business.

Cloud provides a fast accurate and intelligent service both in building sites and maintaining them. It is competitive and effective. It is my first port of call for all my websites and I recommend it all the time to others, so I am glad I have a chance to put something on this site to encourage people to use it.
Cloud is Brilliant. I had been very badly let down by a company who promised the earth and it took them 12 weeks do tell me they couldn't come up with more than a holding page. I didn't know what I was doing!
