    Hi Folks,

    I've written this article long back so it may have some errors though almost every part is correct and works for me and every member of the boards where I've posted it so far.

    This Tutorial works for sure. I've used this method on 4 of my websites and it works like a charm, same with others.

    Thought I'd share here too! ;)


    =============================


    The tutorial is all about getting your site listed on top in Search Engines i.e Search Engine Optimization

    First thing you need to do is find the keywords you want to optimize for.

    There is great tool by Overture (http://inventory.overture.com/d/sea...ory/suggestion/)

    But I would suggest using this free tool called GoodKeywords (http://www.goodkeywords.com/products/gkw/)

    This one does the same job as Overture does but it also supports other Search Engines (Lycos and Teoma etc..)

    For example if you want to optimize for the keyword "tech news", just search for the keyword in any of the tools specified above... It would show you keywords related to that and not of the searches..

    Pick the keywords which are related to your site.

    For example when you search for "Tech News" you'll see the following results:

    Count Search Term
    11770 tech news
    351 itt news tech
    191 high tech news
    60 news tech texas
    49 computer tech news
    42 bio news tech
    34 in itt news tech
    30 news tech virginia
    29 asia news tech
    25 hi tech news
    25 sci tech news

    Now see what other terms are related to your keyword technology news

    Do couple of searches like that and note down around 15-20 keywords.
    Then, keep the keywords which are searched most on the top.

    Now you need Title Tag for the page.

    Title tag should include top 3 keywords, like for "tech news" it can be like :

    "Latest Tech News, Information Technology News and Other computer raleted news here."

    Remember that characters should not be more than 95 and should not have more than 3 "," commas - some search engines might cosider more than 3 commas as spam

    Now move on to Meta Tags

    You need following Meta Tags in web page



    Code:
    <META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <META name="keywords" content="keyword1,keyword2,keyword3">
    <META name="description" content="brief description about the site">
    <META name="robots" Content="Index,Follow">
    No need to have other meta tags like abstract, re-visit and all, most people dont read it.

    Now...


    Code:
    <META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    This tag is tells content type is html and character set used it iso-8859-1 there are other character sets also but this is the one mosty used..


    Code:
    <META name="keywords" content="keyword1,keyword2,keyword3">
    This one should have all your keywords inside starting from keyword with most counts...

    keyword tag for our example would be something like :


    Code:
    <META name="keywords" content="tech news,technology news, computer technology news,information technology,software news">

    Remember to put around 15-20 keywords max not more than that. Dont repeat keywords or dont put keywords like, "tech news", "info tech news", "latest tech news" and so on...


    Code:
    <META name="description" content="brief description about the site">
    Provide short decription about your site and include all the keywords mentioned in the title tag.

    Decription tag should be:


    Code:
    <META name="description" content="One Stop for Latest Tech News, Information Technology News, Computer Related and Software news.">

    It can be upto 255 characters and avoid using more than 3 "," commas


    Code:
    <META name="robots" Content="Index,Follow">

    This is used for search robots..following explanation will help you :


    Code:
    index,follow = index the page as well as follow the links
    noindex,follow = dont index the page but follow the links 
    index,nofollow = index the page but dont follow the links
    noindex,nofollow = dont index page, dont follow the links
    all = same as index,follow
    none = same as noindex,nofollow

    Now move on to body part of the page

    Include all top 3 keywords here,
    I would suggest to break the keyword and use it...

    For example

    YourSiteName.com one stop for all kind of Latest Tech News and Computer Related information and reviews.................

    Include main keywords in <h#> tags <h1><h2> etc..
    and start with <h1> and then move to <h2> <h3> etc..

    <h1> tag will be too big but CSS can help you there, define small font size in css for H1,H2,... tags

    When done with page copy, then you need to provide title and alt tags for images and links.

    Use some keywords in the tags but dont add all the keywords and if not neccessary then dont use keywords in it, basically it should explain what is image all about.

    Remember to add Top keyword atleast 4 times in the body and other 2 keywords thrice and twice respectively.

    Now move on to Footer Part
    Try to include top keywords here and see the effect, use site keywords as links i.e.


    Code:
    [url="news.php"]Tech News[/url] [url="software-news.php"]Software News[/url] etc..

    Now finally, you need to read some more stuff..may be you can all it as bottom lines...

    Site Map - This is page where you need to put all the links present in your site, this is will help Search Engines to find the links easily and also provide link for site map in footer, as search engines start scanning the page from bottom.

    Robots.txt - This file contains address of directories which should not be scanned by search engines.. more info can be found here : http://www.robotstxt.org/wc/exclusion.html search engines line google, yahoo ask for robots.txt file.

    Valid HTML - Your code should have valid html and doc type, Its kind of diffucult to follow all the standards but you can atleast open and close all the tags properly, you can check your page's html online here : http://validator.w3.org/ or you can use this free software called HTML Tidy : http://tidy.sourceforge.net/

    All done now, you just need to check your site with this script, its called SEO Doctor : http://www.instantposition.com/seo_doctor.cfm

    It'll show you the report of your site with solution.

    Now, correct the errors and start submitting the site :

    Start with google : http://google.com/addurl.html
    then yahoo : http://submit.search.yahoo.com/free/request
    then move to altavista,alltheweb and other search engies..

    Also submit your site to direcories like http://dmoz.org , http://jayde.com etc...
    Dmoz is must, as google, yahoo and may more search engines uses same directory

    And remember, dont try to SPAM with keywords in these directories, dmoz is handled by Human Editors

    Submitted the sites, but still i cant see you site on top?

    Wait for sometime may be a month or so but keep an eye on your search term, use http://GoogleAlert.com - this will show whenever google updates for your keywords, it will mail you the new results.

    And also check whether your site is listed on google..
    use this tool called Google Monitor, it can be downloaded for free from : http://www.cleverstat.com/google-monitor.htm

    ALL DONE !!

    I'm Glad I could help! (Well, did you say Thanks?) :wink: :)

    NOTE : This tutorial is written by myself, it must not be ripped from this board and posted elsewhere without permission. If Digit wishes to publish this article, just a small message to me should'nt hurt! :)

    Well, Its getting offtopic. I would'nt have explained but as you called it a RIP, let me..

    The (ripped) tutorial was posted at DEEP on : 7/23/2004

    Whereas, I posted it here on Jun 10, 2004 and here on 06-10-2004.

    And I just want Deep to confirm that he wrote it (as he says he did)!! :?

    Well, I posted at a few private forums way back in 2003. As you see that some things mentioned in the tutorial are outdated (Google Doesnt use Meta Tags and such..)!

    Just waiting for Deep to confirm that he (Did'nt) write it! :?

    This is getting crazier .....with each one claiming that this article belongs to him. Although seems to me that Deep has the expertise to write this kinda article, dunno abt openXS. OpenXS u better have proof for what you said cause the admin at webhosting talk has already linked the article to deep's original work.

    Better, if you choose words correctly!

    Well, I've written this long back in 2003, and I dont remember if I've added a few links of keyword checker and so on later on. But for sure, I've written this for a friend who wanted to get his site on top. We tried a lot of things before we found a way to get his site on top. And once his site showed on top of google, I mamaged to write a short tutorial of my personal use, and added kept adding a few things accordingly...
