again excuse my lack of knowledge about hosting a website, but this is probably a somewhat simple question. i want to make my portfolio visible on google. it's markalandesign.com, but even if i type that into google nothing comes up. what can i do? edit: hm, well i just tried it and it DID come up. but just for the sake of understanding, what steps should one take to become more visible to search engines? like if i wanted to type in "mark alan design" and see my site on the first page, what should i do to help the chances of that happening?
