As the fog and sleepiness left my brain this morning, I found myself puzzled. I was both alarmed and confused as to why my company’s website had so little attention from Google. Or to be more specific, why only 3 out of 80 some of my pages and posts were indexed. I frantically checked my website for some possible missed configurations and errors, but found none. After almost an hour of trying to figure out the problem, I remembered that Re-Branding Your Business Takes Time!
I have actually been through this before, with my own website and with client websites too. Switching a website from one domain to another is not that different from starting a new website. At least not in the beginning, I found that it isn’t that different. Google, Bing and Yahoo have their own timetable for things changing as far as your website is concerned. Even if you are redirecting traffic from the old domain to the new, it takes time.
You have to wait for the search engine spiders to hit your new website and do their thing. Then you have to wait some more as they spider your site and they rarely get everything in one shot. As your website gets spidered, you then have to wait a bit longer for the search engines to decide what to list in search results and what not to. But slowly and surely, your new website replaces the old one in search engine results pages. Re-Branding Your Business Takes Time and I had to remember that.
We only have one way around this problem, which is with marketing and advertising. Direct Response Marketing puts you on the fast-track to more customers.

My videos are unscripted, unfiltered and mostly unedited thoughts about business and life. Or as one friend put it, the semi-coherent ramblings of a genius or a madman (depending on who you ask). But no matter which way you perceive it, these are my thoughts on the tough things that no one else is talking about. Such as Re-Branding Your Business Takes Time.
