So you want your own website? Well your in the right place! First a few things you need to know if you want a successful website…
What is SEO?
SEO means Search Engine Optimisation, in short this basically means a process of making your website popular within search engines. With the popularity of the Google search engine most people concentrate on Google and the rules that it places upon how websites are rated against other sites. However other search engines such as Yahoo and MSN are still popular and shouldn’t be forgotten. Luckily all search engines follow a very similar set of rules to rate websites. Read More…
Google by far provides the most comprehensive search results and to obtain accurate results it must know a lot about the websites it lists. Therefore if we provide as much relative information available the better rating the website will obtain.
From a web designers point of view there are snippets of information that can be put into the “header” information of a website, these are known as “meta tags”, modern sites are able to dynamically call this information from the current page being viewed helping make the “meta tag” information up to date without enlisting further work from a web designer.
The biggest influence in website rating is its actual content. Therefore the better the content the better the search result however you must pin point your market and find out your “Key Words”. …Less
What are Keywords?
The term “Keywords” gets thrown around in SEO terms often as it is the primary method of obtaining good listing results in search engines. Read More…
Imagine you are looking for a garage that does MOT’s, what would you type in a search engine? Probably something along the lines of “MOT garage” however you would get results from all over the country so you would probably put “MOT garage London” or where ever you are in the country. These words are basically keywords used to find your site. So if your website is for an MOT garage in London your site must have this information in it enough times to make it a stronger result than your competitor.
All websites have a multitude of potential keywords and finding the best keywords and ensuring they are used within your website enough is a key strategy in obtaining a good listing within search engines. …Less
What is PageRank?
PageRank is the name Google uses for its website score. All sites that Google finds get a rating out of 10. Read More…
All new sites start with no score at all no matter how good it is. This is due to being in a ‘sandbox’ period. Typically this can be from a month to 6 months depending on how big your site is and how good your content and links are. The more links bringing people to your site the quicker your site will start to be rated. Once Google decides your site is worthy of being rated you start at 0 out of 10.
The rating system is very hard to climb, for example Google itself has a rating of 7 out of 10 and Facebook pages typically rate at 8 out of 10.
If you want to be on the first page of Google you can either spend a lot of money on a regular basis to get to number 1 and then more money just to stay there or make a well planned website with targeted keywords and earn your place on the first page knowing you wont be knocked off easily and saving yourself a lot of money along the way…
