How to show up higher on Google (and other) searches
I am having trouble getting my new website to show up on google searches. The URL is http://hopeofafricayouth.com but I would like it to show up (hopefully high on the list) when people type "Hope of Africa" or "The Hope of Africa", which is the name of the organization. I added "youth" to the end of the domain name because hopeofafrica.com was taking by a domain seller who wanted a ridiculous amount of money to buy that domain. If I type "Hope of Africa Youth" into the search bar, it comes up right away, but without the word youth, the seach doesn't seem to find us, even though the words "Hope of Africa" are all over the website. What the search does find are other organizations such as Hope For Africa, even though their domain names are different than the search parameters. Any ideas how I can get my website higher on the search results?

Some here might have ideas, but you might be better off to google the term "google SEO" and start reading....

and/or start here: http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin...swer=35291

Watch for official information and sites from google itself, watch out for 3rd party information and "deals" in that area there is as much "mis-information" as there is "information"

If it's not too late, you may want to pick a more unique name. There's already several other charitable organizations called "Hope of Africa", including the Hope of Africa Foundation (hopeofafrica.co.za) and Hope For Africa (hopeforafrica.org), as well as a number of other things with the same name, including a reggae group, a CD of traditional African music, and a college.
