Promoting is very important and If you can not promote your site
people can not see your site although you prepared an excellent one.
This page is not a tutorial but you will find everything to promte your site.There are three ways for getttin more
hits.Here are the list and information about them.(listed according to their importance)
1.Search engines and directories
2.Link exchange programs
1.Search Engines and Directories
Search engines are the most effective way for getting hits.Statics shows that %85 of the visitors
come from search engines to the websites.There are over 1500+ search engines.You needn`t submit your site to all of them
But there are some must-submit search engines like altavista,yahoo,exite,hotbot,goto,msn.Each search engine has
a different ranking system.Some of them ranks higher the sites that have totally 400-500 words and some ranks the pages higher if it has totally word count
I want to tell you about How the search engines work.Search engines has a system called "spider"
.Spiders go to the submited sites and check.They reads the document and ranks the site according to its weight,keywords,pages title,images(alt tags)
word count for the title,body,meta tags.Preparing an excellent page does not mean getting 1000s of visitor.
so you must decide the keywords,title and the main text carefully.
Now I will teach you how to decide the elements that effects your position on the search engines, for the best ranking.
1.creating meta tags
Here is a basic meta tag <meta>.You need to use two meta tags on your page.One of them is for the keywords
and the other is for the description of your site.Here they are:
<meta name="keywords" content="write the keywords and phrases here">
<meta name="description" content="write your pages description here">
As keywords you should use phrases more than the words.While writing the keywords think as a surfer
and ask yourself "what words or phrases would I use to find my site" and add the most popular words(for example photoshop,free)
If you want a list of most searched words send an e mail to me.I will give them to you
the text that is written between title tag will shown as the title on the search listing.So it must be attractive
the frequency is important too.And it will be better for you to write one of the keywords as the title.Title tag should be 12 - 24 characters long.
You should repeat the most important keywords a lot and you should repeat them at the top of your page.
Repeating the keywords at the top of the page will higher your ranking.Your text on the page should be 400 - 500
You should use alt="" with image tag.Images alt="" must be one the keywords.
Here is some useful instructions for links to rank better
- name the subpages as one of the keyword when linking
- link text should be one of your keyword
- place the links at the top of the page
And finally own a domain that can be the title of your page.For example if your site is about mp3
try to own a domain like: johnsmp3.com ,metalmp3.net...This will effect your ranking too...
And now This is the time for submitting your site.
Link exchances helps you to get more hits but it annoys me because it effects the loading of the page nagatively
I do not reccommend link exchanges.
If you finished your site ,find some sites that has the same contentas you and contact the webmaster.
And you can try the toplists.I recommend you to add your site to the toplists that gives permission to
