Hello all,

I am fairly green between the ears and may not be searching the right terms to find my answer, so I hope that someone can guide me down the right path.

I have a website that I created for a friend of mine at <snip> based on the Wordpress CMS.

When I search the meta description or the domain name, the website shows up within Google, but when I search the title it does not come up at all.

Does anyone have any suggestions for improvement that I should investigate?

I appreciate your help in advance.

Looks like the domain is only 2 weeks old and I'm guessing you don't have any backlinks. You should focus on gaining backlinks for the website. Promote the site via social media to increase awareness and start building your audience. Google is indexing billions & billions of web pages. A brand new site with no backlinks is going to have a very hard time gaining traction in Google serps.

Obviously, you have used the keyword in the title of your website, and every keyword we use have searches and competitors are already ranking with these keywords. So if you want to rank with these keywords you have to go through with all the required phases of SEO.

dsquared... when you "build" your inbound links, be aware that Google is looking for "freely given editorial links". It's OK to ask another site for an inbound link, but you may not get many links that way. I also suggest that you don't specify the anchor text. Leave that to the linking site, so you get a "natural" keyword distribution and you don't get links that are too obviously optimized.

Ideally, your content is so good that you won't have to ask. Content that is bookmark-worthy is what's most likely to motivate other relevant sites to link to you if your material is helpful to their users. Google is wary of artificially built links.

It's also not good to drop links to yourself, either in forums or in blogs. Those are generally nofollowed at the source, and the practice can get you in trouble with Google. Site owners often don't like it as well. The first links can be the most difficult to get.

Take a look at our Link Building forum [webmasterworld.com...] for ideas.

One step that helps you gain insight on how Google interacts with your site is to open a Google Search Console account. It used to be called Google Webmaster Tools, but that evolved to be GSC. It can help you find things on the site that need some work.

Even though the question was only about Google, Bing also offers a similar type of account to help you do better in Bing search.
