Or know someone who does?

What if you were told that there’s technically no such thing?

Despite what some SEO “experts” might tell you, the top of the first page on Google is a nebulous, shifting target, and while natural techniques to improve your ranking might work, sometimes you just don’t have the time.

But there is a way to achieve immediate visibility for your business on Google, putting your company in front of potential customers when they’re ready to buy what you have to offer:
