What is SEO (Search Engine Optimization)?
SEO is the practice of improving and promoting a website to increase the number of visitors the site receives from search engines. There are many aspects to SEO, from the words on your page to the way other sites link to you on the web.
How should I optimize my website content for search engines and directories?
Incorporating your chosen keywords into your page content is even more important that putting them into your meta tags when you are optimizing your website for the search engines. After you have decided on a few keywords for each page of your website, you then need to review the text on each page and figure out how to incorporate those keywords into that page text. If you simply list keywords on your website rather than integrating them into your text, your website could be banned from the search engines as this is considered spamming.
Meta Tags: What are they, do I need them, and how do I use them?
Meta tags are lines of code at the top of an html page that instruct search engines and give them information about your website. It is highly recommended that you have the basic meta tags in place on each of your submitted url's. While these tags are not the sole source of information about your website, they are very useful in helping some of the engines determine your placement. Without them, you may not be added to a search engine or you may not rank well in those where you have already been included.
How should I optimize my website with keywords?
Search engines and directories use keywords to help determine which sites to list in their search results. In optimizing your website for the search engines, you should start by making a list of several keywords that describe your site content. Ask yourself, "What would a person looking for my site enter into a search engine?" It is very important to select keywords that are specifically related to each page of your website. These keywords are going to be used to optimize both your meta tags and your page content.
How long will it take for me to rank high?
Remember that high search engine rankings do not happen overnight. After optimizing your website for the search engines and completing your search engine submission, you should begin to see your website appear in the search engines. However, it can take 1-2 months for your optimization efforts to pay off due to the time it takes for search engine spiders to properly index your site. Ranking high takes time and is unfortunately a measure beyond any search engine optimization or submission company's control.
