How works

How do search engines find my listing?
You only mention Google, what about the other search engines?

In terms of visitor numbers, Google is the undisputed "king" of the traditional search engines and we believe this will remain the case for a long time yet.

However, good search engine optimisation results from good website design. If you have designed a website (or page) using sound principles, then the chances are all the major search engines will like it! So, whilst we have concentrated on Google, by using good design, your listing will also appeal to the other search engines.
