to Promote Your Web Site On-Line
The best way to promote your new on-line
business via the internet it to get registered with a wide
variety of search engines. There are an array of services
to assist you in getting your new site registered. There are
several important things that are required within your web
pages to assist you with getting found. It is important that
you have a well established page description, title and a
full listing of "keywords" hidden within the coding
of your site pages so that the search engines can find your
pages. All sites that we design have these codes in place.
Search engines generally look for and pick up on certain
words located in the top of your web pages. Generally, the
first thing that they check is for matching words within the
title of your pages, and then in the meta tag discription
& key words. Some search engines will also check for hidden
comments or the first few sentences on the page in question.
For the best possible search results it is best if you have
distinctive descriptions on each and every page, alter your
page titles and page descriptions by using important 'keywords'
potential visitors might use in their searching and register
each and every page possible individually with each search
engine service. This can be a very tiring and time consuming
process even with the help of search engine submission tools.
Acceptance to the various search engine providers vary in
the length of time it will take before your site will be listed.
Many of the major engines might take several weeks while some
of the smaller ones will process almost immediately. The reasons
for this is the overwhelming amount of requests that are received
as well as the fact that many search engine providers 'screen'
each site for content.
Many search engines require that you submit your site within
a certain category which matches your site's function and
purpose, some require other information as part of the submission
process. There are a few search engines which will require
you to also type in a page discription and several key words
that fit your web site in the event that you do not have proper
meta codes on your site.
It is also important that you include the full & correct
URL and an accurate e-mail address for your site. It is impossible
for the search engines to 'spider' your page if there are
any errors, or typos made during your submission process or
erroneous e-mail address. Most search engines will pick up
this error and give you a warning message immediately, some
will send you an email, others will simply exclude your submission.
We find it helpful to maintain a simple list of each complete
URL (http://www.domainname/directoryname/pagename.html) for
each page in our sites as well as a copy of the page discription
& keywords which we can then use to copy & paste over
into the required fields in each submission site. This helps
us avoid making any mistakes.
An important note to people who have frame based sites --
one of the pit-falls for framed sites it the possibility of
new visitors getting separated from your main navigation.
This can be a deadly down fall because how else will they
see the remainder of your site? This can also impact on your
getting bookmarked for future reference. There are Java codes
to correct this problem and keep your web pages 'locked down'
with your navigation pages. All framed sites that we design
include this coding.
We have included links to several established on-line web
site submission programs for you to use. It is a good idea
to submit your site through a variety of programs as each
one handles different search engines and you should resubmit
every few months to update. However beware of programs that
promise to list you with hundreds or thousands of search engines.
Since it is required to give out your email address during
the submission process in many cases these large bulk programs
and software just lead to your mail box getting full of spam
mail. We recommend that you maintain a unique e-mail address
for your submissions for your privacy.
