How to bring traffic to your site - Search Engines - Part 1from:
Bringing more web site traffic to your site can be done by understanding more of your website's standing and statistics. There are so many ways you can bring quality traffic to your site and one of them is by submitting to search engines.
Before dealing with the “how to’s” and "do’s" and "don’ts" of search engine marketing to bring traffic to your site, let us first have a good look on how search engines work.
Search Engines are special websites that are designed to help people using the Internet to find relevant topics about the things that they are searching for.
There are different ways on how search engines work and generate results, but all of them perform three basic tasks.
Basically, they search the Internet or selected pieces of the Internet based on important keywords. They keep an index of the words they find and where they found them. They allow users to look for words or a combination of words that are found on their websites.
Early search engines held an index of a few hundred thousand pages and documents, and received maybe one or two thousand inquiries each day. Today, a top search engine will index hundreds of millions of pages, and respond to tens of millions of queries per day.
Search engines through the years have changed from being a search portal to a marketing tool. Today search engines don't only offer us reliable searches, but also keep us on track of the most promising companies on the Internet.
So, how and where do you start? There are so many ways you can bring quality traffic to your website and in this article we are going to touch on some basics, especially on the search engine factors.
Make sure that your sites are search engine friendly and can easily be crawled by the search spiders.
The first thing to do is to look at your site and make sure that your site is complete. Fix all broken links, have all pages completed. Make sure it loads quickly and properly.
It is important that when you are designing your website, you not only bear in mind what your website requirements are that will make it look good, but also you should take into consideration the requirements of the search engines.
Therefore if you want to be presented well in the search engines, then make your codes easy and nice to read.
What I am trying to say here is that when creating your codes, make sure you include the elements that search engines are interested in.
Like for example, you should put in your title tags, description tags, keyword tags, and alt tags at the beginning of your code. Search engine do not like to wade into your codes of lines to get the core idea of what your site is about.
Therefore, be careful and do some extensive planning on how you will position certain key elements on your site.
If you are using table lay–out pages, then make them simple and not too complicated. Avoid using frames.
Always think twice on how to use graphics. Make them relevant to your content and use the Alt tag for your images. Position the main content of the page before the images, or at least, with the images nested between tags.
When dealing with search engines and bringing traffic to your site keywords are one of the most important things you should look into.
In general, there are a wide variety of keywords that you can use on your page; therefore, for a good concentration of keywords on your site, you should only carefully select the top 10 keywords.
Many search engines look at the main body of the page and identify keywords and phrases that are used within the text. So it is advisable for you to use competitive keywords within the main page of your site's body.
Always make sure that the keywords are prominent within the text of the body.
The following notes above when followed can help you gain a much coveted high ranking in the search engines and can help bring a large amount of traffic to your site, which can lead to a greater flow of profit for your online business.
