How Do I Get Top in Google? aka. The most frequently asked question

We get asked this so often that it really deserves its own page. Usually, though, the real answer isn't what people want. Ready? OK, here goes - to get top in Google, all you need is a good site that offers valuable content. That's it. Then just relax; Google does the rest.

Here's a case study. Consider how many websites mention the phrase "war on terror". 17 million at the last count. We designed a website for a rather natty product called War on Terror, the boardgame. Now simply because the site was built well, had relevant, valuable content and was popular, it is now 2nd in Google. That's ahead of the BBC, the CIA and even the State Department.
