Usefull SEO Tips to get Faster Ranked!
Many search engines decide your ranking based on how many websites are linking to you (as well as how important those sites are). Eg – the more ‘important’ websites linking to you, the higher your ranking. Google is particularly famous for their PageRank system. To find out which websites are currently linking to you, visit www.google.com and in the search form, type “link:www.yourdomain.com”. The search results will be all the websites with a link to www.yourdomain.com
Why create a site map?
To ensure all internal pages in your website are listed by search engines (which crawl the web, following links and indexing pages as they go), add a link to a site map from your home page. The site map page should contain links to all sections of your web site.
Checking if you’re listed in Google
To find out if a particular web page is listed in Google, use the ‘allinurl’ command in their search form. For example: allinurl:websitedomain.com/webpage.htm
Don’t repeat words in your meta-tags
While it used to be common practice to load your meta-tags (and visible copy) with the same crucial keywords repeatedly, websites are now being penalised or removed from search engines for this practice. Don’t repeat a word in your meta-tags more than three times.
Use keywords in your hyperlinks
Search engines often attribute more weight to hyperlinks in your webpages so it’s advantageous to use keywords in your hyperlinks whenever possible.
Finding your webpage’s Google Page Rank
One way Google determine’s a web page’s ranking is by it’s PageRank, a number between 0 to 10 based on how many websites are linking to you (and how important they are). You can find out your webpage’s PageRank at googleranker.com or my preferred method –installing the Google toolbar in your browser. As well as give you the PageRank of the webpage you’re currently visiting, it also blocks popups and allows you to search directly from the toolbar.
Checking for clean backlinks
Web Site Ranking according to Alexa Toolbar
Alexa calulates web site ranking according to how much traffic they receive. The lower the rank, the better. For example, Yahoo has an Alexa Rank of 1 which means according to Alexa, it’s the #1 website for traffic.Microsoft are #2, Google come 3rd. Alexa receives data from the Alexa Toolbar which monitors the surfing habits of anyone with the toolbar installed on their computer. It calculates a website’s ranking based on traffic measured over a 3 month period. The results come from only a small percentage and demographic of the Internet population.
