Montana Website “Dunrite”

Proud to finish a website for our friends in Montana.

The old website had good information.  But it looked really outdated and didn’t work well on an iPhone.

They were also locked into a really expensive monthly website fee.  So we moved the site to more inexpensive website hosting.

We recycled information from the old website and rebuilt a modern iPhone friendly site.

All inside 60 hours.

Follow up: Yes they are back on Google

Just a follow up to our Dec 21st post about Sound Construction LLC being dropped from Google.  We have now completed the fix and they are indeed back on Google, Success!

Google “Sound Contracting Alaska

There was a culmination of several factors that lead them to be dropped from Google.

We basically

  1. Refreshed the outdated hosting and coding on the website.
  2. Random Googlelicious fixes and changes based on years experience. Many basic/fundamental things that add up and makes the site more palatable to Google.
  3. The site had been hacked a little.  Can we got rid of all that mess
  4. There was an old business at the same address, that was clashing on Google maps.  We got the old business off and then worked with Google to figure out why their Business wasn’t showing.
  5. We connected the site to Google’s analytics asked them to take a new look at the website.
  6. Linked up from to local information website (Girdwood.com) and the local newspaper (glaciercitygazette.com). This was the huge thing that helped almost instantly.Google very much respects links from the local newspaper.  Imagine it like a reference in real life.   Mr. Gazette tells Mr. Google that he should go take a re-look at a website.  Mr. Google does it because he respects Gazette.  Mr. Google also looks at Mr. Gazette and every single link on his website twice a day.  So it doesn’t take long till things change.  Sound Construction was back on Google within 12 hours of getting links to the 2 websites above.

Captain Ben Ley and his Company Lady Elias LLC (formerly Solstice Inc.) approached OTC late November. They wanted a website/social media setup that would help them get new crew members as efficiently as possible.

In the end, we got a website designed and built inside 3 weeks. We also set up their Facebook page, made a custom online job application and helped edit an explanatory video.

Captain Ben was in constant contact with the OTC team, just to make sure we got the information and all the details right.  Needless to say, Ben and his business partners are super stoked with the result.

Get me back in Google

Sound construction LLC in Girdwood has been baffled lately about why their website is not showing in Google Search Results.

I mean nowhere, not even for their business name.

So OTC has been hired to see if we can remedy that.

Will let you know our progress.

To start off with we are getting the site linked up from the local paper, Girdwood.com and this blog post. Linking from respected websites is all Google needs to list a site sometimes. It is a like reference in real life.

Also, we will register the site with Google Search Console and Analytics.  This is the closest we can get to directly telling Google ” Hey look at me, I am a website and I would like you to take a look at me.  And pretty please can you put me back in your Search results.”

Will let you know how it all goes.  First, we make some changes, then we have to wait a few weeks to see if it worked.
