How Google and Other Search Engines find a Website?
Search engines find your website through the process called crawling. Google, like other search engines follow links from one web page to another. Search engines consists of a crawler, an index and algorithm. A crawler crawls the site by following the links on your website and indexes your website.

I Want to be Number1 on Google! Does that sound familiar? Every business owner wants the highest google ranking.
Excerpt from Google: “No one can guarantee a #1 ranking on Google. Beware of SEOs that claim to guarantee rankings, allege a “special relationship” with Google, or advertise a “priority submit” to Google…”
