To increase visitor traffic to your site there are a few ways to do this - a great way to achieve more traffic is to ensure your site is optimised to get a better search ranking.
What is Search Engine Optimisation?
When someone is searching the internet for a product, service or organisation they will use a search engine such as Google to find the information they need. A higher ranking in the search results provided by the search engine will give you a greater chance of people visiting your site. Optimising your website to obtain a good search ranking is called Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).

Why is my website not showing up in Google?
If your website is still in a trial mode with a Rocketspark web address your website, e.g., www.trialtestsite.rocketspark.co.nz, the website will not show up in Google search results. Once your website goes live with a proper website address (domain name) it takes Google anywhere from hours to weeks to index your site. Once your site has been indexed your website will show up in search results. You can check out this guide on Google Indexing here.
An easy way to check if your site has been indexed is to do a search in Google for your full website address e.g. www.rocketspark.com.
