Improve Your Search Ranking
Here are the top things you can do to improve your ranking in marketplace search results.
Integrate relevant keywords into your profile: Pinpoint metrics show that profiles that include words that resonate with business customers and/or align with the business tasks they need to accomplish receive the most traffic and surface higher in search results. The following are just a sampling of the keywords that might be applicable to your Microsoft Dynamics applications or services: Accounting, Inventory, Sales Force Automation, marketing or customer service, project.
Listen to the words your customers use when they talk to you about their business needs. It is likely that they use words that many business customers might use to both speak about and search for the technology products and services that you offer. Include these words in your company description, your application and/or service name, and your application and/or service listing so that search engines can recognise them.
Align with Microsoft competencies: Customers can easily recognise qualified Microsoft partners through the new Microsoft competencies. Silver and/or Gold competencies are considered in search rankings.
Get Customer Ratings and Reviews: Improve the relevancy of your listings in search results by getting your customers to submit honest reviews about their experiences with you, your software and services. Encourage them to go to the Reviews section of your company’s profile and click on the Submit a Review button.
Earn the CfMD credential (Certified for Microsoft Dynamics—for Microsoft Dynamics partners only) for your applications. Applications with this distinction are considered in search rankings.
