Website Search Engine Optimization
Once you have your site online, you
need to know if it is formatted correctly and Search Engine friendly.
By using the below tools you can test your website and make
improvements to increase the rank of your site.
Search Engine Optimization Myths
- Small young
sites cannot outrank older and more established sites.
If the site you create is more relevant
to what the searcher is after then Google will rank it higher no matter
what the age or size. Google only delivers what it sees is most
suitable to the searchers needs.
- Maintain a specific % of keyword
density in your content.
Google only rates content on how
relevant it is to the search in question, and will not penalise you for
having too many keywords in your content as long as it is relevant and
will benefit the searcher.
- Building links too quickly will get
As long as you build your links naturally and do not use the same
specific keywords for all your links then the search engines will not
penalize you for this. eg. If a major news story breaks, Google does
not block the content as 1000's of links will be created to that story
all over the web.
- Google does not value the 'Meta
Data' tags that you enter on your site.
Google does use this meta data and usually uses the Meta Description
tag to display in the search results, so still enter any relevant meat
data you can into your sites.
- Links from relevant sites are more
popular than from sites in other niches.
Google can't tell the relevance of a link, and so this is not too
important. If your site is recommended from a completely different
niche, then this only adds to the quality of your links as they are
saying your site has content that is worth visiting.
- Duplicate content will get your site
This is completely false as you can use articles etc. from other sites
as long as it is relevant to your site content and what the searcher
was searching for. Don't believe the hype that you need to make all
your content unique and change content just to get ranked. Good quality
relevant content is good content.
