I Just Want My Website to Show Up First In Google Search Results

“I just want my website to show up at the top when people search for fill-in-the-blank so I can make tons of sales.”

It’s one of the first things people say to me when discussing their website or digital marketing strategy.

When I launched my website for church secretaries about 10 years ago I wanted the same. I did a lot of research and found that there are really only 2 ways to make this happen…

Invest money or invest time. Well actually 3 ways because you could also invest both (great idea).

So 10 years ago I launched my website and I did both… I paid for Google and Yahoo Search ads. I paid to show up above all other search results for my main search terms and while that was going, I was creating content that would show up in search engines organically (eventually).

Soon, I was showing up organically in the top 3 spots consistently. So then I stopped paying for the ads. I didn’t need them anymore.

Nothing much has changed in this regard since then. If you want to start showing up in search results immediately, you pay. At the same time you use search engine optimization strategies on your website so that you also start showing up organically.

About Tamala

I don’t consider myself a business coach or a charismatic speaker who could “sell ice to a polar bear”. I’m a former Electrical Engineer who happened to fall in love with all things Internet Business related back when dinosaurs still roamed the Internet and AOL so proudly announced “you’ve got mail”.

So in fancy terms, I’m a Digital Marketing Consultant and Implementation Specialist (see… fancy).

For the past 18+ years I’ve learned and created online processes and systems that sell for me (and my clients). I’ve invested tens of thousands of dollars on trainings and certifications to become more skilled at what I do.

I’m an implementer… the person coaches, speakers and solopreneurs call to IMPLEMENT their ideas online… to put all of their tech pieces together so that their vision and strategy transform from just ideas and dreams to actual working, income-generating digital assets like sales pages, email signup pages, membership sites, email sequences, websites and sales funnels that convert lookers into leads and browsers into buyers.
