Whenever I hear of someone starting a new website or complete a website for a client, the question, “Will my site be visible by Google?” always comes into the picture. Search Engine Optimization is very important for any website and we all would like to know how to make our websites well known by search engines. In this article I will go over the basics of how you can get started with search engine optimization for your website.
Submitting website to web directories
One of many things people do when starting their website is submitting their website to web directories. Why? Well web directories are great for seo because it let’s search engines know that your website is finally out and gives it the green light to start indexing it. If your website is being indexed by Google, Bing, Yahoo etc then that means the search engines recognize your website and that you’ve successfully did step one correctly. I know there are many experts out there who “oppose” this step and rather do it by themselves, but if you know nothing about seo then I suggest doing it this way, as it will save you a ton of time.
Creating and Managing Keywords
Keywords are very important when it comes to seo as it one of the main factors you will need for search engines to categorized your website. When creating a website make sure you have keywords related to your niche and what you do. If I ran a website that had something to do with cars my keywords would be things like, cars, fasts cars, Lamborghini and etc. Remember keywords makes your website stand out!
Backlinks & Incoming links
Backlinks are very important when considering seo as they give your website a pagerank. Backlinks are links from other websites that links to your site. Imcoming links are links that you link out from your website to other websites. Incoming links do not have much weight to them but they sure do help out and linking out is always a good thing as in you can make great friends that way and hopefully get a link back to your website. Backlinks and Incoming links both are very important because they manage your pagerank.
I did not get into details with this articles because I wanted to scratch the surface with you all so you could get an understanding of how everything works. I did not included everything but the good thing is we now have a seo section which i will start to update so you all can learn how to be a seo master.
