Tell People about it
This can be done by word of mouth. Broadcast that you have a new website. Share your website link on social media. Send bulk emails to your target audience or customers
Every website is so new that nobody knows it even exists! You need to make sure that everyone, including Google and other search engines, knows your website is alive.
Tell Google about it
Google cant automatically know you have a new website. You have to tell them. How do you do that? Use Google Search Console.

Your site is not mobile friendly
Google now adapt mobile-first indexing and if your site isn’t mobile friendly, it will definitely going to lose rank in the search engines. Google has changed the way they now index websites by looking for your mobile content before your desktop content. If your competitors have responsive websites and you don’t, expect your customers to start going to the competition’s website.

You don’t create new content
It is important you know that “new content creates new traffic”. The more content you create, the more chances you have to be found. From my over 8 years of experience in building a website, I noticed must client leave their website the same way it was after it was launched and expect to get people to keep visiting their website. If you want more traffic, don’t be afraid to keep engaging your site and share your knowledge.
Your website is slow
Regardless of how great your website content is, visitors are not likely to be patient and are not going to wait at your website doorstep, especially when they can access your competitor’s website faster.
In conclusion, to build authority in the search engines takes time, but you can achieve a lot by adopting some of the few suggestions listed on the post.
