2. Make Your Business Name Short and Memorable
If you run a fast food delivery service ‘dinner dash’ is long enough, and it implies that the food arrives fast.
If it is a dog minding service, ‘Doggy Day Care’ is a great name with excellent keywords, like daycare.

6. Always Maintain Professional Integrity
If you are a Health Professional, take care. Many professional bodies are preventing their members from giving health advice online. When answering questions about nutrition or food plans. speak in a general tone and don’t be too specific in the answers you give. If anyone wants a one-on-one consultation, it is better that they have an individual consult with you as you will then be able to give them specific help related to their problem. Check what others in your professional area are doing, as you don’t want to be deregistered.
7. Good SEO
In Web Development and SEO keyword density should be around 2 to 2.5%, otherwise, the keywords tend to take over, often called keyword stuffing, so keep it in check where possible. Many websites have some relevant and beautiful photos, and if you have a good digital camera and can take the photos yourself this looks amazing but is not suitable for every site.
Your finished website will attract lots of traffic, especially when you follow a few simple rules.
