Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
What's all the buzz about SEO? It's about traffic.
It's a well known fact that 80-90 percent users on the web begin at
a search engine. SEO is all about improving your placement after
a end-user searches a term. Most small web sites we visit have not
had meta tags properly entered or have no tags at all minimizing the chance anyone would
find their site.
Many myths surround what helps elevate your placement
from a search. Such as 'will signing a web sites guess book give
me better placement?' Actually it can. One criteria that benefits placement
with some engines is the number of links that link back to your site.
However these need to be 'quality links'. What makes a quality link
is whether the information from one site is relevant to another.
If a guest book has relevant information to yours and allows you to
enter your URL you should sign in and give the web site owner a word
or two about his site.
Another myth is free software submission tools, 'get
listed with thousands of search engines.' These tools will get you
listed with minor search engines but the top ten require manual submission.
Free submission tools don't allow including the many fields
required by the top engines. Therefore the top ten engines may disregard
that submission. When was the last time you used Eclectic, Deoji,
LatinoWeb, MiamiMall, Odd-Ball, or Yep to find information on the
web? There are thousands of these engines generally targeting specific
industry. So why would you only list with them?
SEO however is much more than simply gathering links
to your site or site submission. Contact
