The problem with budding entrepreneurs in Nigeria is not money(or access to fund). The basic problem is inability to strive for useful information.

Rule #1 to be a successful entrepreneur: Strive for information anywhere you may find it. Your edge is knowledge of everything humanly

Question #2: How come my website is not visible on search engines?

Disclaimer: my views do not represent any statement from my current or former employer.

Answer: To answer this question, one needs to first understand how the web works and how search engines works. This question is best explained in a video. (Watch out for link later).

Myth correction: Your website is visible on most search engines. The main problem is that, your site is not showing up on pages 1 to 5.

For your website to be visible on pages 1 through 5, your site content must be relevant, accessible, and ready for the search intent of searchers. The three conditions listed here are just classifications of over 200+ signals that most search engines use to determine and rank sites on page 1.

Some of these 200+ signals are technical and sometimes, even the regular web developers are not aware of the impact of their codes on search visibility. These signals bring about optimization strategies.

Here are just a few signals;
- Site load time, domain redirect time, server speed, etc
- Header meta info. such as keywords, descriptions, titles
- HTML, Javascript, CSS, Image file sizes
- Number of Headings -H1, H2, H3
- Domain age, TLD, and DNS history
- Historical volume of traffic
- Schema
- Historical organic Click through rate
- Site navigation
- Number of flash and untagged images
- Number of credible links to site e.g Wikipedia
- Number of credible links out of site
- Hosting configurations
- Type of site e.g blog vs web app vs 1-20 page site
- robot.txt file
- URL structure
- etc etc etc

It is important to note that visibility on search is even more difficult because of the impact of mobile evolution. There are more mobile sensitive signals used to determine ranking of search terms on mobile devices.

The bad thing about search is that; you can't be on page 1 on day 1 of site. The good thing is that; it's get better by the day, in as much as you do the right thing and ready to evolve as things change.

To get started on improving your site visibility, go to your favorite search engine and search for "search engine optimization starter guide". You should find a PDF by Google. Read and implement the simple instructions.

Share your stories and thoughts with everyone afterwards.

I appreciate your comments, contributions and criticisms.

So on this day, I am starting something new. Something I hope would benefit every Nigerian and African on the internet. I am starting a conversation called ‪#‎Questions4Abdul‬ ‪#‎Q4A‬.

I am happy to answer any question about online media, digital marketing, online and mobile strategy, online retail, online technologies, measurement, web analytics, et.c one hour every day, except on Sunday. I have come to realize that so many people and small businesses in Nigeria and in Africa at large do not have the right information about the opportunities on Internet and power of online technologies.

For any question that receives the highest likes or comments, I would do a video and possibly get a subject matter expert to deal with it.

Get your questions coming. No question is silly. My hope is that more people have knowledge and capacity in this area of life.

Sample questions: How do I sell online? How come my website is not visible on search engines? How do I make more people know about my products online? How come my emails to customers goes to spam? How do I make my website mobile friendly?

Free online media tips, Free One Hour Consultation #Questions4Abdul #Q4A

‪#‎Questions4Abdul‬ ‪#‎Q4A‬
I would be answering question #1: How do i sell online?

Disclaimer: My viewpoints do not represent my current and former employers

Answer: There are several ways to sell online depending on what you sell. I guess the 3 simplest ways are; 1) Sell directly with or without own website 2) Sell on marketplace 3) Sell via business listings

The three can be combined in different ways. Definitely, the results would be different, because the marketing and exposure would be different.

For example, if you sell hair attachments, selling directly via social media may result in 10 orders per week, however listing only on kaymu.com may record 7 orders per week.

There are some important things to note before deciding on selling online. Some are; what is my product? How do potential customers buy my product? How do I deliver products? Am I interested in repeat customer? How do I market to potential buyers? How much cost per order can I afford? How is competition doing? Et.c

I think subsequent answers would elaborate more on how to succeed as a online business.

#Q4A I would appreciate your thoughts and criticism.
