There could be a technical such as a "no index" tags coded into your website by the person designing your website. Naturally Google would not index or visit your website when such a tag is in your website. Or if your website is using dynamic URL, it is also possible for Google not being able to index your website properly. Another possible scenario is that your website "penalized" by Google for containing duplicate content, meaning you have inadvertently taken and used contents taken from other websites.

Your website URL is your address of a webpage on the web. It's the most direct way for someone to visit a page on your website. But first let's clear the confusion between what's a domain name and what's an url.
https://www.simple-seocompany.com is a domain name
https://www.simple-seocompany.com/webdesign is an URL
The URL is one of the most important parts of the page Google looks at to determine what a page is about.

Local SEO (local search engine optimization) is a process of SEO efforts and strategies designed to improve the visibility of your website on Google and other search engines when people close to your physical location perform a search or when a search phrase includes a specific location.

Local SEO focuses on the optimization efforts of local brick-and-mortar businesses with a physical location that operate within a certain geographic area. Local search rankings occur when a user includes a local keyword phrase in their search or while the search engine detects the location from an user's device. For example, local SEO is what helps businesses surface in Google Maps or search results when someone using a mobile phone searches "best pizza near Petaling Street" or "pizza near me".

We can, in good conscience, write a long list of reasons, why you should enlist our help to manage your online marketing. But we think five major reasons should be enough paint a clear picture here:
Choosing a search engine optimization (SEO) agency can be a daunting task. There are so many options out there, and they all offer different reasons for you to choose them. Some of the SEO companies you come across may offer SEO guarantees or money back guarantees. At first, an SEO guarantee might seem like a great reason to choose an SEO company. In reality, though, a guarantee is a sign you should look elsewhere for SEO services. Choosing an SEO company that offers guaranteed SEO services comes with significant risks and often leads to lackluster results or even substantial damage to your rankings. You can't make a guarantee about something you can't control. Google has explicitly warned companies not to work with SEO companies that offer guaranteed SEO result.
In Google's Beginner SEO documentation in Google Search Central, Google says: "Your prospective SEO should be able to give you realistic estimates of improvement, and an estimate of the work involved. If they guarantee you that their changes will give you first place in search results, find someone else."
Google also notes that "No one can guarantee a #1 ranking on Google" and warns companies to "beware of SEO companies that claim to guarantee rankings."

Our SEO services contract is for the duration of one year. We furnish monthly SEO reports indicating your contracted keyword rankings as a result of our SEO effort.
We view SEO as a fundamental strategy to optimize a website to enable it to rank in a search engine such as Google. However, in today's competitive business environment, a successful online strategy demands a firing on all fronts multi faceted approach.

Search engine keyword rankings are based on a variety of factors such as the SEO-friendliness of your website and the level of competition of your industry. If there are a lot of websites targeting the same search terms, it usually may take longer time to rank into the first page of Google search engine results. While we can estimate how long it will take for your website to go up in page #1, we cannot predict exactly when a search engine will favour your website over a competitor. From our experience, in normal circumstances, we are able to get most, if not all of our clients target keywords ranked in the top page within a 3-4 month window.
Determining a cost to achieve your website ranking on Google search engine involve many factors that only a thorough audit, especially in the areas of technical and On-Page SEO compatibility can reveal.
However, instead of adopting myriad fees for different cases, we have opted for a fixed annual fee that covers the entire gamut of SEO work with much success.
The said fee will include initial consultancy, a thorough audit of your existing website for technical SEO ranking suitability, the necessary fixes required thereof, identification and evaluation of target keyword phrases, clear and thorough explanation of the salient SEO processes involved, forecast of deliverables, all complemented by scheduled reviews. We are aware of the huge disparities in fees charged by a raft of SEO outfits in the market. And all made worst by a mind numbing assortment of so called "packages". Some would require you to take on a second mortgage to pay for the privilege while others are suspiciously "cheap" you wonder how they make rent.
We do not ever take short cuts, even think of circumventing Google's algorithm by employing cheap and dirty tricks also known as black hat SEO which may harm your website's rankings or worst, getting your website blacklisted by Google. You would incur opportunity cost, money and time to repair the damage.la lot more m Online marketing initiatives like SEO need not be overly complicated.
