    Guys,


    Need some advice, my site when searched isn't being returned by google due to another site having a similar name and presumably more backlinks..


    Google offers to "Search Instead For" my site, when clicked returns what I would like to appear when the term is searched first time around.


    So what i am looking to achieve is to ensure that when my site is searched it's returned first time around! What would you guys advise is the best thing to do?


    You can try this yourself, my site is SmartDoggi and google will display results for Smartdoggy instead.


    Any help on improving this and improving it's visibility in Google's search would be really appreciated

    Hello! Depends how new is your site and for how long has it been indexed... Try to rank for keywords that are not used by other sites and see that your site answers to specific questions that the users might ask. After a while you will gain enough authority as to be suggested from the first search. Good luck!

    Gotta build up the reputation of your site. The other site is more "relevant" for your brand name, this usually happens to new sites or with bad SEO.
