Basic SEO tips - Part I

Filed Under () By Yo, at 4:48 PM

1. Insert keywords within the title tag so that search engine robots will know what your page is about. The title tag is located right at the top of your document within the head tags. Inserting a keyword or key phrase will greatly improve your chances of bringing targeted traffic to your site.

Make sure that the title tag contains text which a human can relate to. The text within the title tag is what shows up in a search result. Treat it like a headline.

2. Use the same keywords as anchor text to link to the page from different pages on your site. This is especially useful if your site contains many pages. The more keywords that link to a specific page the better.

3. Make sure that the text within the title tag is also within the body of the page. It is unwise to have keywords in the title tag which are not contained within the body of the page.

Adding the exact same text for your h1 tag will tell the reader who clicks on your page from a search engine result that they have clicked on the correct link and have arrived at the page where they intended to visit. Robots like this too because now there is a relation between the title of your page and the headline.

Also, sprinkle your keywords throughout your article. The most important keywords can be bolded or colored in red. A good place to do this is once or twice in the body at the top of your article and in the sub-headings.

4. Do not use the exact same title tag on every page on your website. Search engine robots might determine that all your pages are the same if all your title tags are the same. If this happens, your pages might not get indexed.

I always use the headline of my pages as the title tag to help the robots know exactly what my page is about. A good place to insert the headline is within the h1 tag. So the headline is the same as the title tag text.

5. Do not spam the description or keyword meta tag by stuffing meaningless keywords or even spend too much time on this tag. SEO pros all agree that these tags are not as important today as they once were. I just place my headline once within the keywords and description tags.

SEO is not necessarily an appropriate strategy for every website, and other Internet marketing strategies can be much more effective, depending on the site operator's goals. This includes paid search advertising which has its own version of SEO called ATO (Ad Text Optimization).

Good Basic SEO Tips, Thanks

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in search engines via the "natural" or un-paid ("organic" or "algorithmic") search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine's users. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search, academic search, news search and industry-specific vertical search engines.

If you love watching advertisements, then you must love watching movie trailers. Now it’s time to download movie previews. These include the latest movie trailers. I have downloaded and collected these off download movie previews websites and can now boast of having one of the best movie preview collections. A lot of people do not know why movie previews are called trailers. In the olden days, a preview was slotted to be shown at the end of one movie and hence it was called a trailer. Movie trailers are looked upon as a preview of the film. It is supposed to give you a brief glimpse into the plot and the storyline of the film. Sometimes special footage is shot exclusively to be included in the trailers. Fully fledged movie downloads are extremely popular on the internet now. You can download just about any movie if you subscribe to their monthly package. But download movie previews have become even more popular now. There are a separate series of websites that have been created only for movie trailers. The use of trailer can also be shown in cinemas. They are seen before or after each movie and this is a form of a good advertisement. In most of the cases the movie trailers are giving much importance by the producer as this is where people will based their opinion and film choice. If the movie has a good trailer they will surely get the attention of many people. Movie preview trailers are often the best shots that are seen in the movie while, there are also cases that some footage that you can see in the movie trailer are not seen in the real movie. Before the management introduced a movie trailer in the public it needs to be polished well
