1. Make sure you have plenty of back-links to your website
One way to improve your organic ranking on Google is by increasing the number and quality of sites linking back to your website. Backlinks work wonders for your ranking as Google gives credit to websites that have a good number of QUALITY backlinks, quality being the important word. Backlinks from high ranking, high traffic sites are also great. For example: online business listings, florist magazines and newspapers.

2.Content , Content , Content
Search engines love sites with fresh content added regularly. A blog on your site is the best way to keep your site fresh. You should ideally be looking at adding a new blog once a week . The more content you have on your site the more search engines will have to crawl and index, it also helps the search engines to gain a better understanding on what the website is about and which types of searches it should rank high for.
Your blog doesn’t have to be overly long or complicated, just something short , keyword rich and interesting.
3.Make Sure You’re On The Map
You should make sure that your business is appearing on all search engine maps. For example : Google Maps & Bing Places. The sooner you get on Google Maps , the sooner you can start to climb the rankings and show up in the Google Maps results section on the first page of Google. Once you have your Google Maps listing set up you should ask your customers for reviews so that you can get a step-up on the competition.
