Get Your Website To The Top Of Google And Stay There:
Your Website may be the slickest, most jaw-dropping beautiful creation known to man but its nothing if it isn't showing on the first page of google search results for your chosen speciality subject. Our starters for ten...
An obvious first choice but still probably the most importantant element of a websites content. To the uninitiated a website isn't categorised by its graphical content but its words. It's therefore vitally important to make sure your website not only looks good visually but has enough content stuffed away in the outer margins to keep the search engines happy. An important point to make here is to not stuff too many keywords in arbitrarily as Google being the swine that he or she is will soon be pulling your pants down for that schoolboy trick.
Quality Incoming Links
Google devised the process of ranking a website by the ammount of other websites linking to it and supposedly therefore being the most popular and useful for those search terms. However the search engines are now moving away from this method of ranking now that every Tom, Dick and Harry is swapping links with one another. It's still a good idea to get as many incoming links as possible but don't bother with recipricol link schemes as its a waste of everyones time
These are the bits of code that form part of the description of what it is exactly your website does or services you offer or sell. Again, these, in the internets infancy, were all you needed to worry about. Simply type a few suggestive words in your description and keyword meta tags and see your website rise above the filthy competitors. Nowadays a bit more effort needs to be done to keep your website high among the rankings though its still neccesary to use these meta tags
The smart money for the forseeable future among hardened SEO's is to make your website useful. Provide some quality tutorials like this fine specimen or better still offer free downloads or something that people will find indispensible.
Try to keep abreast of what is going on in the world of technology and weep with despair
Podcasts are all the rage at the moment or at least they were until yesterday lunchtime, now they're probably met with incredulous derision among the cognescenti. Other things to try and understand are RSS feeds - your guess is as good as mine, Blogs - which seem to be like sad online diaries as far as I can make out and user powered content sites wherby geeks worldwide sit at their consoles and vote on things that interest them which pretty much rules out anything I can comprehend. Be sure to implement all this somehow and you'll see your website sitting pretty on that ever encroaching monster - google.
