Unique company name: A business with a unique company name would be easier for people to find. If the name you choose is too common, the search engine will show much more similar names and it will get confusing to find one in particular and it will get lost in the crowd.
Strong website: The website should be impressively designed, interactive and informative. The use of proper keywords, metadata, strong page titles, page descriptions and appropriate meta tags are essential to improve page ranking. Overloading the site with too many meta tags would be a bad idea. The metadata too must incorporate keywords related to the content on the website.
Blog: The website must have a premium blog that is embedded in it. The blog must be updated as regularly as at least once per week. The blog post must be of high-quality content. If you don’t have time to write blog posts, hire a ghostwriter at reasonable rates. The content must be new and engaging. Even old blog posts may be refreshed into new. Textual content can be upgraded with images and videos. The titles of these contents too must be keyword rich.
Driving traffic: Social media marketing, blogs and pay per click ads will drive traffic to the website every time someone clicks on it or shares it. For this to happen, the emphasis hugely lies on the quality of the content.
Sitemap: A sitemap can be created by skilled technicians using Google webmaster tools which will assess and improve the quality and make the site easier to find on search engines.
