7 Outdated SEO Tactics and What You Should Do Instead

Last Updated Apr 13, 2011 8:31 PM EDT

Search engine optimization takes time; there's no way around it. But it can be highly profitable when done right. Exactly how long it takes to see SEO results depends as much on what you do as on what you don't do. It's important to focus on tactics that have a long-term value versus short-sighted moves that can wind up hurting you months from now.

Below you'll find seven outdated SEO tactics that aren't going to fly as search engine algorithms, notably Google's, become better at detecting what websites truly deserve to rank in search results. But don't worry -- I've provided elegant alternatives to each that will be more useful in the long term.

1. Link Buying

As opposed to obtaining links to your website from other sites organically, this is when you take a shortcut and buy links from websites to improve search engine rankings. This could include paying for reviews of products, services, etc., as well as using a link brokering service that you pay on a monthly basis to purchase and maintain links on your behalf.

Why not do it? Um, remember what happened to J.C. Penney? And then Overstock.com? Buying links is a blatant violation of Google's Webmaster Guidelines. It's pretty much guaranteed that eventually Google (or your competitors) will catch you in the act. The result? Search engines will lower your rankings and possibly remove your website entirely from search results.

What to do instead: Earn links organically. That means consistently create unique, quality content that others in your industry will find of interest. Infographics, videos, "Top 10" lists are all known to draw traffic and links. Join relevant online communities and become a trusted member, known for offering advice without being a salesman.

2. Publishing Online Press Releases

These days, there are lots of online wire services offering to blast out your press releases so they get scraped by other sites. The goal is to get attention online and obtain links back to your site.

Why not do it? From a purely SEO point-of-view, it's a waste of time and money. Links from low-visibility websites that scrape your press releases do not help you rank better.

What to do instead: To get high-quality links and press at the same time, start using HARO, where you can connect directly with journalists looking for sources on stories. If you are quoted in a reputable media outlet and the story links to your business's website, this is a much better way to boost your search engine rankings.

3. Article Submissions

Sounds harmless enough: Write content for various ezine websites that publish your content for free and offer a link back to your website.

Why not do it? This was not a bad SEO strategy up until Google's "Farmer https://moz.com/ Update", which essentially took away much of the SEO value that the ezine-style content farms had. But even prior to the Farmer Update, writing articles only for the sake of obtaining links resulted in low-quality, barely readable content that did little to grow your brand.

What to do instead: Spend time writing one insightful article for your own website or guest blog post, rather than writing 10 uninspiring ezine articles. You will find that one high-quality article will often be picked up and linked to from multiple sites.

4. Blog Commenting (only for the sake of a link)

By entering your website url into the comment fields of certain blogs, it was once possible to improve your search engine rankings.

Why not do it? It's a waste of time. Now these links offer little to no SEO value and frustrate the very bloggers you should become friends with.

What to do instead: Leave insightful comments that other users will appreciate. Engage in conversations and be of value to other members. Rarely promote your own content, except when highly relevant. In the long-term your SEO efforts will benefit far greater than leaving random blog comments.



5. Link Exchanging

This is the antiquated practice of linking to a website simply for a link back to yours. The idea is that both parties benefit with improved search engine rankings.

Why not do it? Most search engine algorithms are able to detect unnatural link schemes, often created by link exchanging. Also, it can hurt your rankings to link to websites that have a lot of low-quality links obtained through link exchanges.

What to do instead: Find websites where you can write guest blog posts or give an interview in order to obtain a link.

6. Directory Submissions

Many online directories allow you to submit your website for inclusion, which offers a link back to your site.

Why not do it? Search engines give very little value to these content-poor directories, thus rendering links from them worthless. Don't waste your time submitting your website to any and every directory. You could go on forever.

What to do instead: Pick and choose directories. Your chamber of commerce, local directories like Yahoo Local, Google Places, and Dmoz are examples of worthwhile places to submit your website.

7. Keyword Stuffing

To rank higher, you put the same or (almost the same) keywords all over your website.

Why not do it? Since the early 2000s, most search engine algorithms have been smart enough to identify unnatural language patterns in text and when they detect the overuse of a keyword, your ranking takes a hit.

What to do instead: Use language that is intended for your users, not search engines. Targeted keywords in conjunction with their synonyms, naturally spread out throughout your text will have a much greater impact on improving your site's relevancy and rankings.

Have a question about whether or not you should try a certain SEO tactic? Ask me in the comments!

Is Cosway or eCosway a scam

Is the SE Pendant 0352 dangerous for your health?

I spend quite a bit of time reading forums on topics like business and living overseas. One thing that really bugs me, is from time to time you get people trying to promote MLM (multi-level marketing) or network marketing schemes.

Most of them are clones in some way of Amway, one of the most well known network marketing companies. From time to time a new company comes along offering fantastic new products and lots of new promises for people to make money.

Cosway or eCosway is one of these new companies. It was brought to my attention from a forum post that offered people to get set up in their own retail business for free! One thing I have learnt in life is that nothing is ever for free.

The way the company was being sold on the forum, was that anyone could apply to get their own Cosway store. When I checked the website, it talked mainly about people operating a virtual or e-commerce website. There were some pictures of physical stores, but I have never seen any actual stores. The comp

any has its head quarters in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and when I was there recently, I didn't come across any stores in any of the major shopping centers there.

Most companies have lists of their stores on their websites and information on their products. MLM companies though, usually only have a brief description on their company on the front page and then you need to become a member to view the rest of the website. This makes it difficult to get real information about the company and the company's activities.

Ecosway promotes itself as a way for people to save money on their shopping, but their products are mostly non-essential items with dubious health benefits such as slimming and beauty products. Just take at one of their products, the "Bioglo BodyLite Thermo-Active Body Shaping Gel". The product promises to "melt away" your body fat. Is there anyone who actually believes that you can apply a gel to your skin and you will lose weight? They even give a list of some of the product's ingredients: chilli pepper, essential oils, fruits and herbs.

Like many MLM companies, eCosway promises people to create a second income, "The combination of eCosway's unprecedented global business opportunity and unique, no breakaway Profit Plan allows you to build a fast, lucrative and everlasting income from the continuous and unlimited growth of your global network of consumers and Business Owners."

The problem is to start making any money, you need to purchase a certain amount of products every month. There is also an annual fee to become a member of eCosway.



While most MLM companies promise wealth and riches, the reality is that only the few people at the top actually make any real money. To stay as an active "business owner" with eCosway, you need to purchase a certain amount of product every month, so if you can't introduce anyone else to the company, you might even lose money with the scheme.

Update: Some of the comments on this article have accused me of not doing enough research. So, I decided to see what further information I could find on Ecosway and information about opening your own store.

About the company and its tactics on the share market I did find this quote by the edge Malaysia: "BHK (Berjaya Holdings Hong Kong), which is listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange, had been queried on a number of occasions about unusual market activity involving its shares." Source: http://www.theedgemalaysia.com/business-news/151284-bcorp-sells-cosway-to-hk-unit.html

About opening your own store, firstly that is restriced to women only in Malaysia. Due to anti-discrimination laws this would not be possible in many countries. eCosway likes to promote that anyone can open a store, the fact is it is not easy at all.

Firstly it would be impossible for every BO or business owner (eCosway member) to have their own store. Only a small percentage will end up being able to open a store. To open a store you need to pass an interview and exam. Test scores are not given to people who take the test and overall the process is criticized by people for not being transparent.

If you are able to go on to open your own store, you will need to work at least 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. Once you close your shop, you will need to spend some time calculating sales etc. You can employ staff but this will come out of your own sales commission. You have to meet sales targets or your contract could be terminated. The required sales are around 20 times the rent of the shop. Your profit is 5-10 per cent of sales.

You do have to pay a deposit of RM 10,000 to open the shop. Most of the expenses of running the shop are paid by eCosway, including rent, electricity etc. The operator of the "free" shop will need to pay for water, telephone installation and insurance.

To join as a business owner you only need to pay 100 RM. When you join you are given the opportunity to purchase set packages at discount at 40-50 per cent discount during the first 30 days. The 500eV package for example costs upwards of RM2,300. These packages are not compulsory but if you are interested in opening your own store, people will suggest you purchase the higher priced package to show that you are serious.

SE Pendant 0352

There has been some controversy over the SE Pendent 0352, which eCosway is selling.  From its website, the pendant "is an energy accessory that has been proven by reputable bodies to emit Far Infrared Rays (FIR) and scalar energy. It facilitates the conductivity & flow of Bio-Energy with the presence of germanium and invigorates the mind & body with its abundant negative ions."

Just who the "reputable bodies" are, the site does not say specifically.  The company makes various claims on the affect of wearing the pendent, including: improving your gold swing, making students more alert, increasing your metabolism and keeping your body trim and helping people with aches and pains. 

Sounds great, but the Hong Kong customs and excise department has urged people not wear pendents with enhanced radioactivity.  The report does not mention eCosway specifically, but https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Search_engine_optimization the picture of the pendant the name, are exactly the same as the ones being sold by eCosway (not in HK however!) (http://www.info.gov.hk/gia/general/200909/09/P200909090271.htm).

Acting on information from the Department of Health that a pendant for sale was potentially harmful to health, officers of the C&ED seized 2,835 pieces of "SE Pendant 0352" from a chain store.

Samples of the seized pendants were sent to the Department of Health and the Government Laboratory for analysis and testing. Analysis results revealed that the radioactivity concentrations of radioactive thorium-232 and uranium-238 in the pendant were both above the limit recommended by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)for commodity products.   

According to the Department of Health, short term contact with the pendant would not result in immediate effect to health. As the radiation dose from a single pendant may reach 50% - 60% of the annual skin dose limit recommended by the International Commission on Radiological Protection, year-long contact with the pendant may result in erythema of the skin in some individuals. The risk of skin cancer also increases with the duration of contact.

Unlike email marketing, these online newsletters are issued at regular time intervals.

This is also one of the most effective Internet marketing strategies.



These were few of the most significant aspects to be considered in making an effective e-marketing strategy. There are many more components such as web metrics and analysis, RSS feeds, press releases, business blogging, and many others.

Miami SEO Experts: Blackhat or Whitehat? It's time to ask better questions.

Miami, FL --

Since the late 1990s, SEOs have been identified as belonging to one of two camps - the "blackhats" and the "whitehats". Progressively, these labels have transformed into little more than exaggerated caricatures, cartoon heroes and villains that merely exist as manifestations http://www.bruceclay.com/seo/search-engine-optimization.htm of our imaginations, usually embellished to suit our latest marketing agendas.

Under the microscope, even when evaluating specific tactics and methodologies, "whitehat" vs. "blackhat" is akin to distinctions of "liberal" vs. "conservative" - the definition evolves with each year that passes and every person you ask. Undoubtedly, that definition is almost always accompanied with significant bias, assumptions and judgments.

Unfortunately, too many businesses still base their choice of internet marketer on the hat they don, even if that hat only comes out as a flourish for sales calls.

Business owners should focus on educating themselves to the basics of search engine optimization and forming better questions. True tactical and strategic differences exist behind what we often refer to as "black" and "white" hat, and those differences are critical to understand when deciding the right direction for your business.

I won't tell you how to run your business. I simply want you to ask yourself (and your prospective SEO vendors) harder questions.

Are "cheap" and "low-value" strategies truly saving you money? How much risk are you really willing to stomach? Is your top priority to get up and running quickly and cheaply, or are you trying to build a real, long-term business that realizes steady incremental growth?

If the best your SEO can do is show you their hat, and they can't help you answer these questions, then move on - it doesn't matter what color that hat is.

Are you getting 'Scroogled'? Microsoft ads deride Google

SAN FRANCISCO -  Microsoft is trying to skewer Google as a lousy holiday shopping guide in its latest attempt to divert more traffic to its Bing search engine.

The attack starts Wednesday with a marketing campaign focused on a recent change in how Google runs the part of its search engine devoted to shopping results. The revisions require merchants to pay Google to have their products listed in the shopping section.

In its new ads, Microsoft contends the new approach betrays Google's longstanding commitment to provide the most trustworthy results on the Web, even if it means foregoing revenue. To punctuate its point, Microsoft is warning consumers that they risk getting "scroogled" if they rely on Google's shopping search service.

The message will be highlighted in TV commercials scheduled to run on NBC and CNN and newspaper ads in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. The blitz also will appear on billboards and online, anchored by a new website, Scroogled.com.

The barbs are likely to inject more antagonism into an already bitter rivalry between two of the world's best-known and most powerful technology companies.

[pullquote]

Google's search engine is dominant on the Internet, with Bing running a distant second. Microsoft's Office and Windows software remains an integral part of personal computers, but Google has been reducing the importance of those programs and PCs with the success of Web-based services and its Android operating system for smartphones and tablet computers.

Google still doesn't require websites to pay to be listed in in its main database. That's the index providing the results for requests entered into Google's all-purpose search box. A query made there for a particular product, such as computers, will still include results from merchants who haven't paid for the privilege of being included.

But anyone who clicks on a tab at the top for shopping-specific results will see only listings for paying merchants. That means results from sites, including Web retailing giant Amazon.com Inc., aren't displayed unless they pay. Amazon so far has only occasionally paid to have some of its wares listed in Google's shopping section. Zappos, a http://seoforlawyers.net/ site owned by Amazon, has been more willing to pay the price to be listed in Google's shopping results.

Google defends the fee-based approach as a way to encourage merchants to provide more comprehensive and accurate information about what they're selling.

"I think you just get a well-organized set of product information, ways to buy it, and really have a great experience there," CEO Larry Page said during a conference call with analysts last month.

In a statement late Tuesday, Google said it's pleased with the response to the new shopping system, which offers listings from some 100,000 sellers.

Google, like Microsoft, also accepts payments for ads that are triggered by specific search terms and appear to the right or on top of regular search results. Those are labeled in gray letters as ads.

Since its inception in 1998, Google has tried to cast itself as a force for good while depicting Microsoft as a ruthless empire.

But Google has become less cuddly as it has established itself as the Internet's main gateway -- and through that, as a well-oiled moneymaking machine. The Mountain View, Calif., company's search engine is so influential that government regulators in the U.S. and Europe have been investigating whether Google has been stifling competition by giving special preference to its own services in search results.

Microsoft, which faced its own antitrust inquiries more than a decade ago, is among the companies that had prodded the investigation of Google. This time, it's pouncing on Google for straying for from its own principles.

Since mid-October, Google's shopping section has included only listings from merchants who paid to be included in the results. In some cases, the order of the shopping results has been dictated by how much money Google received for the listing. The change coincides with what is expected to be the most lucrative holiday shopping season on the Web yet.

Google discloses that it receives payments in small print at the bottom of the shopping results page. The notice is also visible if a user clicks on a link at the top of the shopping results page, under the heading: "Why these products?"

What's left unsaid is the omission of sites such as Amazon, which often offers some of the best deals on the Web.

The financially driven system for determining the results in a major part of Google's search engine breaks new ground for a company whose idealistic founders, Page and Sergey Brin, once railed against the perils of allowing money to influence which Web links to show.



Brin and Page preached about the issue in academic papers that they wrote about search while conceiving Google as Stanford University graduate students. They also delved into the topic when discussing Google's "don't be evil" creed in a letter written when the company went public in 2004.

"Our search results are the best we know how to produce," Brin and Page wrote in the letter. "They are unbiased and objective, and we do not accept payment for them."

Microsoft contends that Google is doing a disservice to its users with the new approach, as many users may not even realize that the results in shopping search are being swayed by money.

"We want consumers to know in contrast to route that Google has pursued, we are staying true to the DNA of what a good search engine is really about," said Mike Nichols, Bing's chief marketing officer. "We will rank results on what's relevant to you and not based on how much someone might pay us."

Microsoft once accepted payments that can affect the order of results. But the Redmond, Wash., company said it hasn't accepted payments since it re-branded its search engine as Bing in 2009.

Bing's shopping section includes merchant listings for Shopping.com, a service that gets referral fees. Microsoft said the payments don't influence how Bing ranks its shopping results.

9 Ways Search Engine Marketing Is Changing

Every year since 2012, SearchMetrics has released an annual report titled, "SEO Ranking Factors Study". This exhaustive report analyzes the top 30 search results for 10,000 keywords and going through almost 300,000 URLS to find changes in SEO ranking pattern from the previous year, track marketing data and see how old trends perform in a newer, faster world.

While much of the information highlighted in this report are continuations of trends that have taken shape in earlier years, some of these points are very surprising, and all of this data sheds an important light on how and why we use the internet.

Since I started using Searchmetrics years ago I've been able to improve my websites rankings a ton by knowing what's the good, bad and ugly behind the scenes and these following 9 tips are what I found to be most interesting to me and my site.

9. Higher ranking positions (especially the top spot) are now reserved for shorter URLS. We can now say goodbye to keyword domain names, which now take up just 6% of the top 30 search results for 2015, down from 9% in 2014. It turns out that higher ranking spots on search engine results pages (SERP) have shorter URLs - position 1 is reserved for the shortest URLs, because that's usually where homepages rank.

8. The average font size for top ranking websites is 12 - 14 pt. This is the first year that SearchMetrics has http://www.whatisseo.com/ started factoring in font size in their study, but it seems like a logical development given how many different screens are available to Internet browsers now. A good key to remember is that smaller displays deserve larger font sizes

7. Longer content has become an industry standard. The average word count in HTML has increased 25% since last year. Now, top ranking pages have an average of 1140 words per page. Not only has the sheer number of words increased, but the content has become more complex and holistic, with more integrated media.

6. Strong correlation between time spent on site to number of clicks. The strongest ranking websites often yield longer visits. One good way of optimizing the time spent on a site is by leaving internal links, embedding videos, and posting long and quality rich content.



5. Backlinks are becoming less important, but they indicate why sites do well. For a long time, links served as a crucial indicator of SEO and ranking. However, this is no longer the case - it's become much easier to manipulate the number of backlinks that a site receives and sends out, and the way that users navigate the Internet has subtly shifted the way links are used. As such, the trend towards linking is on the decrease. However, it's still a substantial ranking factor. SearchMetrics indicates that URLs that rank in positions 1 - 4 usually have noticeably older backlinks, implying that older and more established sites rank highest; while URLs in the middle of the list on SERP typically get backlinks from news sites, which indicates that search engines prefer current content.

4. Social signals indicate success. While Google has always maintained that social signals don't directly factor into a site's ranking, it's hard to ignore that the almost all the sites that do well have more Like buttons, Twitter feeds, Pinterest pins, and +1s. More importantly, many social buttons usually indicate that the website is a brand, or that they regularly produce more content, which is the cause to their success. Pages that do well on social media also do well.

3. Technical elements are important because they contribute to user experience. While not typically the first thing one notices about a well ranking website, the appearance of H tags, interactive functions, concise and relevant meta descriptions, large photos, loading and HTTPS encryption are all important factors of search engine ranking. All of these functions help organize information on a page, engage user activity, clearly outline a page's intent and information on the SERP, protect a user's information, and provide high quality visuals. As such, technical elements (and the list is growing!) are extremely important primarily because they enhance the user experience on the site.

2. Mobile searches are changing the game. As Google announced in May 2015, "More Google searches take place on mobile devices than on computers in 10 countries including the US and Japan". For the first time, mobile searches have no overtaken computer searches, and this introduces and reprioritizes certain ranking factors, such as responsive design, less external links, font size and URL length.

1. Quality content, not keywords, is king. Like links, keywords have always been considered an integral part of search engine ranking. However, just like links, they have been too easily manipulated, and now they are showing their decline. Rather than trying to string together as many keywords as possible, it's more efficient to concentrate on relevant content, using more related terms, proof terms (which are common words which appear across all articles relating to the topic), and high semantic density. And, as content has become more holistic, the number of "keywords" has decreased, but the number of relevant terms on a page have increased. All of this contributes to more comprehensive content across the top-ranking sites on Google's SERP.

What else did you learn from the study?

Search Engine Optimization :: Search engine optimization: How to get people to visit your site

You've put a lot of effort into designing a website, either for yourself or for your business. You even put one of those counters at the bottom. But sadly, that counter is not moving very much, if at all. How do you get more people to look at your hard work?

There's a technical term for that question: search engine optimization. When you type a term into the search box on your favorite search engine, there is a ranking system that determines which websites are at the top of the list. The higher up a website is in a search list, the more likely it is a searcher will choose to visit that website.

The trick is how to get your website higher up in those rankings, or search engine optimization (SEO). It's a popular question, after all, who doesn't want more visitors to their website? There are many books, articles and websites devoted to SEO techniques. Here is just a sampling of some of them.



SEO involves researching search engine's coding, structure and presentation to determine how websites are ranked. When you consider that no search engine indexes more than 16% of the web, you can see where it is very important to figure out how each of those search engines work.

That research, which should be done by someone with internet expertise, can find a problem that is keeping a search engine's web crawler from fully exploring your site. There are consultants who specialize in finding and fixing these problems. It is important to remember that while search engines do offer SEO guidelines, they don't list all of the factors they consider in their rankings. Google alone said it uses more than 200 different factors.

If an SEO consultant or company has determined there is not a technical problem keeping your site from ranking higher, you can improve a site's ranking by making sure it has unique content so it can be easily indexed by those search engines. Try to make your web content truly unique. For example, you can add information specific to your region. Or, you can add additional information that cannot be easily found on other sites, such as your company's product information.

Those are some of the right ways to optimize search engine use. Of course, there are also wrong ways as well. For instance, there is "spamdexing" which involves repeating unrelated keywords to trick a search engine's web crawler into ranking a site more highly. A site https://www.seoinc.com/ that unnecessarily repeats a term, such as "SEO" could end up ranking more highly that a site that mentions the term less often but offers more actual information.

Another SEO technique to avoid is using a link farm. Search engines sometimes rank sites by the number of hyperlinks in the text. Link farms are a group of web sites that hyperlink to each of the other sites in the group.

These and similar techniques are frowned upon by search engine administrators and by web users. Search engines that discover such deceptive techniques may not only reduce the ranking of sites that use them, they can even remove the website completely from the search engine's database. This has happened and not just to fly-by-night, snake-oil-salesmen types. It has even happened with prominent, international companies.

Probably the best and easiest way to optimize search engine rankings is to take the extra time and effort to meet each search engine's guidelines. Keep in mind what a typical search engine user is looking for when trying to find a site like yours. "Do unto others as you would have done unto you" can definitely result in higher rankings in various search engines.

If your website is intended to generate business, it is definitely worth additional time and money for SEO. However, remember the internet is changing rapidly. Even the best SEO research will not necessarily generate higher search engine rankings.

While search engines are an important way to get attention to your site, it should not be the only method you use. Studies have shown that it is more beneficial to get links to your site from other websites. However, by investing in SEO, you can generate more legitimacy to your website.

20 Essential Search Engine Optimization Tips for Small Business Owners

Last Updated Jul 29, 2010 10:42 PM EDT

Matt Cutts, Google's most visible search engine optimization guru, has said there are more than 200 variables in the Google algorithm. Don't expect to find an explanation of all 200 here -- because I don't know them. (That's why Google is full of Ph.Ds.) But I have helped a number of Websites get to the No. 1 search result. How? By following simple rules. What I have learned about Google, Yahoo, Bing, and other search engines over the last 15 years could fill my Starbucks Venti cup. Lots of so-called SEO experts will swear they know enough to fill a swimming pool. Don't buy it -- they're overselling their expertise and even if they aren't, you don't need to know enough to fill a swimming pool. Search engine optimization is something every small business can do on its own with the help of a few simple rules.

First, a word of warning about the limitations of SEO: You can optimize all you like but if people aren't searching for and talking about what you're selling, no amount of SEO will help you rank or sell more. Figure out what people are looking for by doing some keyword research. Try tools like SEO Book, Google Keyword Tool or Wordtracker (I also like using Google Insights for trending results. Hint: Search and look at the bottom).

Now, let's talk about what's on your site and how to optimize it. (I consider this part to contribute only about 30 percent to your overall search rank. I'll get to the other 70 percent later in the post.)

1. Write Website copy for humans. Search engines are smart. They know what a real sentence, paragraph, and links should look like. Don't keyword stuff your site or talk about the same things over and over again to try to beat them. It doesn't work.

2. Focus on 5-20 main related keywords or phrases for your entire Website. You don't want to spread yourself so thin you don't rank well for any search terms. Try to "own" the search for a select number of terms. Use the tools above to identify the ones that will drive up the quantity and quality of visitors.

3. Get your best keywords into your domain, folders, and page names. For some great examples of how to create keyword-rich domain names, check out the results for these searches: used cars, monkeys for sale, belize vacation. Folders and pages should also include keywords: for example, http://www.yourdomain.com/used-cars/used-ford-thunderbird.html.

4. Check your keyword density and tweak as necessary. Keywords and phrases for a page should be around 3-5 percent of the total text and links of any particular page (not too much more and not too much less). Don't just focus on your homepage. It's about 50 percent of the search weight of your Website but every page needs keywords to create a "theme" for search engines. The more pages that are ranked, the more entry points your Website has.

5. Make sure the title of each page is different. Mix up your keyword combinations and phrases and don't use more than 70 characters. You can use more, but each word takes weight from another as you keep going. The first words in the title matter most.

6. Include a unique meta description for each page. Include phrasing that has a call to action since it is seen under your title in many search engines. For example: Buy a used car today. We offer great financing for our used cars. To learn more about our used cars, trucks and automobiles call 1-800-used-cars today. Use no more than 155 characters.

7. Style your keywords. Use header, bold, and italic tags throughout your Web pages. These keywords are important and you should show that to visitors & search engines as well. You can style header tags by using some simple CSS to match your Website.

8. Name your Images. Get keywords and phrases into the file names and use them in alt tags, too. For example: used-cars-1965-thunderbird.jpg with an alt tag of "Used Cars -1965 Thunderbird."

9. Link intelligently to yourself. When linking from one page to another on your Website, use your specific keywords or phrases. Don't just use words like Home, Products, Contact if you can use Used Cars Home, Our Used Cars, Contact Used Cars.

10. Create an XML Sitemap. Search engines love them. You can build a quick sitemap for your Website using XML Sitemaps Generator. Upload your sitemap where your front page (index file) is located, then just tell Google, Yahoo, and Bing where it's located at (http://example.com/sitemap_location.xml). A quick way to do this is with a robots.txt file...

11. Create and upload a simple robots.txt file. These tell search engines what you allow or disallow them to add to their search engine. Google has a good description of how to make robots.txt file here. (It takes about five minutes.) Add your sitemap location to the robots.txt and you won't have to submit it to the search engines manually like above. Just add sitemap: http://example.com/sitemap_location.xml to the robots.txt file.

12. Link out. Search engines give more importance to Websites that link to other related sites, especially if they're local to your city or state, or industry. Create a "Resources" page with keyword-rich links out to other sites.

13. Refresh your Website with new content and pages regularly. One easy way to do it: Find related subject RSS feeds and add a couple to your Website too. I like Google AJAX Feed and WebRSS for this, and there are more here.

What you http://seoagencychina.com/ can do on your Website is pretty easy to see; how Google and others tie everything together is not. This is what happens offsite and it's really where the rubber meets the road. Think of it this way: An expert grows their influence and reputation as more people cite their expertise, whether they are a big name in a small niche or a big name in a huge field. The same is true for Websites. And just like people, the more popular your subject matter, the harder it is to get through the noise. Keywords can only do so much; recommendations -- in the form of links -- from influential people and Websites are what will give you a real edge.

Here's how to get links that matter:

14. Ask the right people to link to you. Check the page rank of as many Websites you can find in your industry and start by asking the ones with the highest rank. Link to them first on your Resources page and then email them and ask for a link back. Send them the keyword-rich link text you would like them to use for your Website. Join the Better Business Bureau and your local Chamber of Commerce also -- they usually link to you automatically and this helps in local searches. Check to see who is linking to you by using Yahoo Site Explorer. All of this sounds labor intensive but it's worth a year of your time if it helps you get the No. 1 spot.

15. Create a "Link to Us" page. I have found that if you offer logos and keyword-rich link text to visitors, they will link to you. Here's an example I created for linking to Cloud Hosting at Rackspace. If you do email marketing, email the page to your subscribers and past customers and ask them to link to you.

16. Become an expert on more sites than just your own. Write guest blog articles for your industry on popular Websites. (See how I just did that in tip #15.) Start your own blog and incorporate it into your Website; post and comment on Twitter and Facebook about your industry; answer questions on Yahoo Answers or Google Groups; submit reviews on Yelp, Amazon, ePinions, and Alexa; comment on industry blogs and forums. Link back to your website when it's helpful but don't overdo it.

17. Get listed in directories. They have been around a long time and search engines scan them for new links because of their reputation. Try DMOZ, Yahoo (fee required, but worth it), Business Directory (fee), Ezilon, Best of Web (fee), BizWeb, Gimpsy (fee), Go Guides (fee), Google Directory, or ipl2.

18. Give away free stuff. The more content you can make available for free -- samples, whitepapers, software, tutorials, tips, coupons, contest prizes, etc. -- the more people will link to you so they can pass it on.

19. Syndicate your press releases. Send out a press release locally or nationally when you create a new product or service and link to yourself in it. Here is a nice list of some popular ways to syndicate your press releases.



20. List yourself on Google Places. This means your business will show up as a Google map search result and it carries a lot of weight for local searches.

Getting a higher search engine rank will always be about compelling products and information that is spread by word of mouth. I love what my colleague Klee Kleber, the VP of marketing of Rackspace, says about SEO: "It's a religion." I, like everyone else, have different beliefs on how Google works and we can talk about it until we run out of breath -- but no one knows for sure except the hundreds of Ph.Ds that work at Google. But a strong foundation of great products and quality keywords and links is always the best place to start and build from. To learn more about SEO, check out the best two sources I have ever found at SEO Book and SEOmoz. Keep me updated on how it goes.

How does search engine marketing work?

The most effective way to advertise on the Internet is



to first set up a website and publish its domain name



on major search directories such as Google.com,



Yahoo.com [at http://www.google.com/addurl/?...... and



MSN.com since 85% of Internet shoppers rely on these



search directories to provide them with goods and



services. In a sense, these search directories are a



very large Internet Yellow Pages.

Nevertheless, should your website or opening webpage



fail to contain "generic" keywords, then anyone using



such "generic" queries will not be able to discover



your website. Your domain name [URL] of your website,



in a sense, will be invisible, undiscoverable.

You may want to consider some simple algorithms which,



when observed and committed in designing of a website



with placement of various critical metatags that can



surely achieve a high search engine presence and



increase Internet traffic to your website. These



metatag strategies work well with published webpages



at Google and Yahoo.

Design: Should you create an extensive Flash-based



website, make sure to fill-in the property entries



such as the Title, Description and Keywords. Failing



to do so, leaves no hard HTML or ALT resource that can



be readily indexed by search robots. Also consider the



Internet audience and their incoming setup. For



example, if they are on analog/dialup, Flash webpages



take too long to load up and therefore analog users



will likely lose interest and discontinue entering the



Flash site. On the other hand, anyone on hi-speed DSL



lines, will welcome Flash pages which http://smallseotools.com/ load quickly. So



before designing a pure Flash websitge, ask the simple



question, "Who's my end user - is he on dialup or





DSL?" And if you had to choose between these two users



for maximum marketability, then select analog users



since 80% of most resident users are still analog



Internet subscribers and pure HTML designed webpages



is best for them.

A non-Flash-based website which relies on hard text,



is far easier to be indexed by search robots. Limit



the use of stylized text saved as .gifs since as a



graphic, they are not indexable by search robots.

Avoid use of frames since any number of search robots



are unable to properly classify textual material.

Placement of Metatags:

A ranking or search order does take place with Google



and Yahoo and it begins with the "Title" metag which



should consist of no more than 65 characters separated



by commas. The "Title" should describe in generic



terms, the goods and services, followed by a location



from which the resource is located, i.e., city, state.



The placement of a domain name which is not generic



within the "Title" is not appropriate, unless your



domain name is a major recognizable brand name.

The second metatag is the "Description" which is



usually 25-30 words to form a complete sentence which



best describes one's goods and services.

And the very last category - "Keywords" are also



somewhat limited to 15-16 words which can be plural



and compound in nature. Again, avoid multiple entries



which could be mistaken as "spamdexed entries" which



is defined as the loading, and submission of



repetitive words into a particular metatag category.



"Spamdexing" when discovered on a webpage and reported



to Google's spamreport.com can result in the



elimination of your website from their search



directory.

Good luck!

Basic Article Marketing Tips for New Writers at Infobarrel



Business people

Credit: Morguefiles

Article Marketing is a method or practice by which the writer submits their content to web publishers in return for web promotion. You control the content and most importantly you control the backlink and the anchor texts. Goals are to both gain traffic and rank higher in the search engine.

Article should contain at least 400 or more words, and breaks in your paragraphs so that the article is easier to read.

 Words you want or need to rank for should be in the title. Anchor text should be the same word you want to rank for in the body.

       What do you do with the articles?

Content Syndication has become a very powerful tool for link building. This is when your material is made available to other sources like Article Directories, Blogs, and Social Media websites.

 Some sites publish articles and make them available to webmasters to publish on their websites. They also make them available to a third party, directory or blog to pick up.

 So if you have your articles posted anywhere, make sure you have reviewed the sites reputation and take heed to any comments from other writers that you may hear about the site. Submit good, powerful, and strong content.
