Please note that it usually takes up to four months for your site to be recognized by the search engines and enter the search rankings. This process is the same for all web sites and is mandatory for anyone with any company, submitting a site to a search engine. Once listed, your site will be placed in the rankings according to relevance of what is searched. If you would prefer a more noticeable and guaranteed high ranking spot, we recommend signing up for online programs such as Google’s AdWords. These services cost extra and are not part of your internet web service package.
We do advise all Integrity clients to first be active in your communities — PR activity, outreach events, mentions on news media/radio — before expecting to be prominent on the Internet. Local prominence and Internet prominence for local businesses go hand-in-hand but the in-person local prominence should be considered the higher priority. Internet prominence should naturally follow.
