Hi LockerGnome , I would like to ask how do you get your business website noticed on search engines. How would someone see my website or business if they searched related subjects on search engines.
Thank you for reading
Just in case, here is my website in progress on a subdomain while working on it: techsociety.netne.net
Networking is a key roll in getting noticed with anything. Build up some close relations with other websites. Talk to people, get involved with other websites/projects. Another thing you can do is get listed on Google and other search engines. You can do this by submitting a form to most search engines or by signing up for a service that does so. Setup some good relative meta-tags so that when Crawlers/Spiders/Bots scan your website to review its content and check that it still exists, they can keep you in a better position under the relative searches. Make your site simple, elegant, and easy to navigate. Think as if you were a regular user on your own site, what would you want to see?
All of this, taken under careful consideration should help anyone trying to make a growing website.

First, prescreening for typos w/spell check if needed or google.translator. . . . just trying to be helpful. There is only one "s" at the beginning in "business", but I know what you mean.

Social Networking is the easiest way to draw attention to a website. Especially if you primarily have followers who are interested in the content your site delivers.
I get a majority of my visitors by mentioning my site in my print articles which are circulated amongst several different publications. This isn't always an option for the average or hobbyist website owner though.
I've always been a believer in Quality over Quantity though. Its great if you get a million hits in one day. But, if 99% of those million visitors have zero interest in your content they're not likely to return. So, a targeted audience is important. And, you have to give them a reason to return. If your content is updated infrequently; people may stop checking your site on a daily basis and eventually just delete the bookmark after a while. Update your content, and update it frequently. If you are selling something, then make sure you offer an option to join your mailing list and update them frequently with deals, new items/services and helpful hints in the area of interest that you sell to.
Finally, be original. If you start a website for WoW players, don't expect a lot of traffic. The topic is already saturated and game players want updated content. So, a gaming site without a direct feed from the design team is probably just going to be a glorified forum with a handful of your friends.
The above is just an example.. the same could be said about LOL cats, etc. Unless you have unlimited resources (time, money and connections) you are not going to re-create the wheel and succeed.
Hope this helps!

The answer is tied into that old saying...
"A successful business is successful BEFORE there even is a business!"
Because, if you didn't plan well, you will FAIL!
