TOP Answers about SEO -Part Three-

7. How do I Optimize My Web Pages?

For a good start in optimizing your web pages it's necessary to place your keywords in the right location. Search engines look at first to the link of your post/website, then the title of your website, headings, subheadings. Important is the content on your page, too but they primarily focus on the first paragraph.

If your domain name includes already your primary keyword, you will have an easier start. It tells the search engine spiders immediately what your site is about.

Title Tag
Your title tag is the line of text that appears on search engine results pages that acts as a link to your site. This is a crucial element of your web page as it describes to your visitors what your page is about.

Keeping your title tags brief, descriptive, up to date, and keyword rich will help to improve the relevance of your site in the eyes of the search engines, as well as giving your potential visitors a good idea of what they can expect from your site.

Meta Tags have lost their importance to the search engines, however, it is still helpful to place your keywords in your meta tags.

8. Do I Need to Submit My Site to The Search Engines?

The simple answer is - no. Search engine spiders are always out there doing their job and collecting information. Every time you update your website, add content, or change your keywords, the search engines capture the information and record it.

However, if you want to be listed in a directory, like the DMOZ Open Directory Project, then you will need to submit to those.

9. What are Spiders?

Search engine spiders are also called web crawlers or bots. They're basically automated programs which scan websites to provide information to search engines often for the purpose of indexing or ranking them.

10. How does Content Help My SEO?

Content is one of the best tools to improve your search engine ranking. It is a great place to emphasize keywords, encourage linking to your site, and boost traffic.

The key to content is to make sure you're offering quality content and you're updating your website and your content frequently.

Content can be provided in many forms including:
• Blogs
• Forums and chat rooms
• Articles
• Reviews
• Case studies
• Reports
• How to guides
• Tutorials
• e-books and much more.
