Hi Ruth,

+1 to what John said. There’s no doubt you can easily do this yourself.

If you’re using wordpress.

1) Install Yoast
2) Configure a sitemap within Yoast Plugin settings
3) Get url to sitemap
4) Create Google webmasters account
5) Verify your website
6) Add your site map to Google Webmasters.
7) Force a crawl / index of the home page

There would be plenty of tutorials online how to do all of this. It’s very simple.

The harder part is how do you optimise your site so that it appears highly on relevant terms. It’s one thing to get your site into Google and it’s a whole other thing to optimise it effectively.
