Websites can be a great advertising tool.
If they are built search engine friendly and can be found by searchers on the search engines. The reality is that if there are five hundred mobile ice cream businesses listed on the search engines, all with similar keywords and descriptions within their pages, all fighting for listings within the first five pages of results, it doesn't take much mathematics to work out that 400 of those mobile ice cream businesses are going to be on pages six or higher of results displayed.

Well that's not too bad you're probably thinking, but most searchers get bored after about six to ten pages and your business could end up on page twenty or so. However, there is a way to jump the queue, the next time you're on a search engine type in ice cream vans with a county of your choice and look at the websites always listed within the first couple of pages, then look at whether any of those websites offer good targeted value advertising or suitable related listings on their sites. If they do you should seriously consider purchasing a position or placing an advert.

Apart from being more cost effective than submitting your website to numerous search engines placing adverts on high ranking websites will also increase your own website ranking. Most search engine spiders look for the amount of external websites linking into your own and therefore gives more prominence to your website if more are linking to it.
