Top Tips to Boost Online Dating Website Rankings

Nov 09, 2015

There are 124.6 million singles in the United States searching for love on the internet, and the numbers keep growing. Last year, singles spent over $82 billion on dating websites. A Pew report showed that one-fourth of Americans between the ages of 25 and 34, called themselves “online daters.” As the online dating market continues to blossom, innovative entrepreneurs have an opportunity to build and manage extremely profitable websites with a little web knowledge.

Successful online dating services have one major thing in common – really good web design. Great webmasters don’t obsess over what their competitors are doing. Instead they engage in these types of discussions:

  • What does my audience need / want?
  • How can I make a function better for my users?
  • I will work on my website until I can successfully compete against my competitor.
  • I will analyze all webpages and see where I can make improvements.

The most successful websites bring pleasure to their users with engaging content, a nice interface, and user-friendly features. Every webpage has the potential to be better. And the more users enjoy the website, the higher the rank will climb. A website isn’t complete until the Google rankings are where merchants want them to be. The following are a few more ways to increase ranking:

  • Follow the Google webmaster guidelines
  • Update the design of your site
  • Instead of tracking stats, approach your website from a user perspective and ensure the best information is available to users.
  • Consider adding better images and graphics.
  • Enjoy the process.
  • Develop Marketing and Advertising Strategies that center on better content, help develop social media presence, and build customer networks.
  • Invest in and manage credible software to track sales, traffic, and chatter.

Having a merchant account allows an account holder to take advantage of merchant cash advances. When a merchant is approved for an advance, the business agrees to receive a lump sum of cash in exchange for an agreed-upon percentage of future credit card sales.

Pricing varies depending on the merchant’s industry, past credit card processing history, the type of business seeking the account, average ticket sales, and average transaction volumes.

Yes, EMB works with merchants who are building their credit, as well as those who have poor credit. EMB also approves merchants that have no credit card processing history and businesses that have lost their merchant accounts due to high chargebacks.

Several factors influence a merchant’s risk level. Though only one factor likely will not get a merchant classified as high risk, a combination of these may: business size, location, and industry, credit score, credit card processing history, a industry’s reputation for excessive chargebacks, a prior history of high chargeback ratios, and whether a merchant exclusively sells online.

Virtual terminals are stationed on a merchant’s website, making it easy for customers to make a payment or purchase online. Merchants or a payment processor can easily set up virtual terminals, so online businesses can accept credit and debit card and e-check transactions.

A merchant account is a business account with an acquiring bank. Without this business account, which actually works more like a line of credit, a merchant cannot accept and process credit and debit card transactions. Businesses need a merchant account to accept major credit cards via a static point-of-sale terminal, mobile card reader, or through a virtual payment gateway.

After filling out EMB’s simple online application and submitting any necessary, requested documents, many merchants get approved within 24 and 48 hours.

EMB specializes in working with high-risk merchants. EMB works with many merchants, including but not limited to businesses in these industries: gambling and gaming, adult entertainment, nutraceuticals, vaping and e-cigarettes, electronics, tech support, travel, high-end furniture, weight loss programs, calling cards, e-books and software, and telecommunications.
