There are two ways to show up on the top of search results: Paid search (also referred to as pay-per-click (PPC), cost-per-click (CPC), Google Adwords, Search Engine Marketing) and Organic Search (also referred to as natural search, SEO or Search Engine Optimization).

However, we encourage that you create a business email address using your company's domain name (e.g. [email protected]) to appear more professional and established.
