Get your business website visible online

Do you have a local business website that is not showing up in the Google search? What you may not know is there are reasons this is the case for many small businesses. The fact is there are only 10 spots on the first page of any search result so it is obvious not all the businesses in your area can be there.

The question you need to ask is why are your competitors getting all the prime traffic and phone calls from being on page one and you are not even getting the odd email? According to Aubrey Grace owner of Oneweb Internet Marketing, “Those business on page one of any search result either know about SEO or have hired an SEO company to get them to that position”.

SEO or search engine optimization is the process of affecting the visibility or ranking of a website or a web page in a search engine’s “natural” or un-paid (“organic”) search results according to Wikipedia

What can small business owners do? Grace recommends to get knowledgeable about marketing your business online. The basics of SEO are not difficult to learn and you can find lots of information on how to get started by doing a simple Google search. The biggest reason why most companies hire an outside SEO specialist is the time commitment and expertise needed to get your website ranked on the first page and keep it there. This is an ongoing investment in most cases as those companies on page one are all actively competing to get the number one slot.

For those businesses that have very little online competition. Very little work is needed to get listed on the first page and stay there without any further work. But with all business owners knowing an internet presence is a fact of doing business, the competitiveness online will only increase as time goes.

The Lindleys and Paoli Indiana: The historic connection

Thomas Elwood - Lindley House Paoli Indiana

Thomas Elwood – Lindley House Paoli Indiana

When Paoli Indiana was established, the Lindley Family played a role in its development by selling a portion of their land for $800. This portion of land became the county seat and has contributed greatly in building the town of Paoli as it is today. Court activities were also carried out in the home of William Lindley, Jr. until a courthouse was built.

The Lindleys were granted land when Jonathan Lindley and his family came to Orange County from North Carolina in 1812. His grandson, Thomas Elwood Lindley, went on to become an influential Quaker, serving as a member of the State Legislature. The Thomas Elwood Lindley House was given in 1974 to the Orange County Historical Society by H. Carl Thompson and Dorothy Farlow Thompson.

The Thomas Elwood Lindley House was used as a farm house before and this was reflected when the property was restored to showcase the period between 1850 and 1869 that it was inhabited. It was in 1985 when The Thomas Elwood Lindley House was officially listed as part of the National Register of Historic Homes.

Other properties in town reflect the rich history of Paoli Indiana. Many of these properties are still standing today, enjoyed by many tourists coming into town.
