With the millions and millions of websites in existence today, how do you get yours noticed? The most common way is for it to be high up in the rankings of useful and relevant websites. Google is the most widely used search engine today. When someone keys in a search term on Google, you can only hope that your website comes up in the first ten pages of results. You do not have to sit there and just hope, though. There are a number of things you could do to improve your chances of being noticed.

Google came up with a system to rank websites based on incoming links to ensure that only high quality sites could rank highly. The Google PageRank system does take a little bit of skill and knowledge, but it does have its basis in numbers. If you want your website ranking to improve, you need to try to get enough links pointing to it.

So, how does the Google PageRank system work? It all boils down to the number of links pointing to your site. The PageRank system surveys all of the known links on the internet and ranks your site based on this. It even surveys the links that are already in circulation and adds a rating weight to each of them. The highest ranking links will always have more weight than the others. The best links you can get will be ones that are high in PageRank.

You can use online tools to check the ranking of a page. If you have the Google toolbar installed in your browser, you can activate the PageRank toolbar. This will give you a way to check a site’s rank. You can also search for the PageRank of sites with Google Toolbar. Just type in the URL of the site with the Google Toolbar active. This will show you the PageRank of the site. The highest number in the green bar in the middle of the window is always good.

Be aware that it is important to get links from other sites with the same keywords. Find sites that are relevant to your own website, but ones that are not in direct competition with yours. There are free search engine optimization (SEO) tools that can help you to do this. You can do a search on the keywords and take a look at the titles. If they are well written, you can probably get a link.

An additional way to improve your PageRank is to have other sites link to your site. This will increase the PageRank of your site so that your site will show up higher in the search engine results. However, you want to make sure that the sites that link to yours are relevant to your own site. It is generally better to link to a site that is higher in the rankings than to a site that is lower.

In conclusion, the PageRank algorithm is very complicated. Only the engineers at Google really know the details of it. However, I have done my share of testing and have come to some conclusions. Here is what I have learned through my testing.

It is a myth that you need to have your keywords in the title to rank well. It doesn’t matter what your keywords are. If you have them in your title, you will do just fine. However, you want to have them in the title because it is a deciding factor. It only takes a few handfuls of links to get a new site out of the sandbox. A new site will rank quickly and attain the first page in a few weeks.

You should try to get inbound links from higher PageRank sites. With so many sites in the sandbox, a link from a higher PageRank site will count big towards your total link score. A link from a PageRank 8 site will be worth a lot!

Don’t apply your backlinks towards the wrong keywords. When people get confused as to why their site isn’t having any traffic, they sometimes try to get backlinks on sites that have low traffic keywords in their titles. Google will penalize your site for doing this. It’s better to use long tail keywords as much as possible in your SEO. Usually short keywords aren’t specific enough to get good conversions.

You should include your keywords in your page title. When you create your titles, use keywords that you want to rank for. If you have a list of keywords, put weight on the most specific first. For example, if you run a lawn care service, your top four keywords would be: maintenance, lawn care, cutting, seeding. It’s better to put these first, because competition for the top keywords is fierce. You can perform your own keyword research to find these specific longer-tail keywords.

You should include your keywords in your page content. Based on our previous example, your top four keywords ( maintenance, lawn care, cutting, and seeding) should appear throughout your page.

Optimizing Your Google Site Map To Help Search Engine Spiders explore Your Site

Search Engine Spiders (and librarians like us who have world maps) can only follow straight lines, so a “site map” that is not represented in a line makes the spider visions stumble. A site map can help the spiders get all over your site, but if it is not straight you are probably losing site visitors.

Google has a very good way of displaying a page’s hierarchy. The tree in which your site map fits in has a central hierarchy, which commonsically’s means that the more important is the top. For example, page 1 of the home page is at the very top, and page 2 is below page 1. Google finds pages according to their importance and assigning site maps are just as important. Suppose your zoom function is configured to represent Google’s view of your site – in Google view, page 2 would be on top. Here is an example for you:

Top Level Layout (visited, visited, page 1 now located)Top Level Layout (visited, visited, page 2 now located)

If Robot.txt science isn’t your thing you could solve this situation by defining wesite at the top level and saving this page in a folder called “Top Level Layout” and only view the page in this new file. This way your site map will still work.

2) How many Tycoon? This is one reason many people use site maps – how it works is that the Pirate Guild will drive the spider away if it cannot insure a trek by going directly to the element of all wealth expiation which is your home page. This means theSPA wants to put links to pages on other pages tolaually direct the spider from one of those site map pages to the home page.

Top Level Layout:

First, research the best possible navigation paths you have to your site for your site map. Design the second page of your own according to Google’s assumption that users will find this page.

Make sure that all pages’ pages (in addition to the home page) are also accessible from this page, since many surfers like to visit the main page first and then peruse the other pages. Remember, every page must have a way to get back to the home page. For example: if one page is linked to the home page, this page must automatically be linked to back to the home page.

Respect the fineness of the page’s purpose and limit the site map in size to some number of links to the top level pages, and ensure that at least all of the top level pages are classified by space (generally, 10 x 10), space (generally, Proceeding levels 1, 2 and 3) and the space (generally, more boxes which correspond to further levels). Also consider that there usually use only one link per page back to the home page – however, you maybe able to get more links for every deeper level (except you put this page as a “end result” on every file created). Remember that Top Level Layout must follow the item file’s structure, so if your sitemap is set as a hierarchical tree, and you have way of putting lists of pages into your page with a hierarchical font as well, the earlier version of page can really be put in a list instead of a tree (i.e. the main page, and later main page, all linked to the home page and all linked to the home page in the earlier tree won’t be on top of the latest rophy tree).

Know that not all things on the Internet are according to strict standards. You may want to take a look at other site maps to suffice yourself more. You can view a visited section ofVisitFinder., accessible to empty site maps. You can go tohttp://sitefinderpro.comand gain some basic help.

If you’d like to know more about creating a site map it is best to research webmaster forums and understand how they’re used – sometimes designers have a harder time writing down instructions for use on the web. So why don’t you go to a popular website design site and ask them about it. That site can be a great resource – it will certainly give you a good idea about how your site is being viewed by your user base.

But the most important content of your site is your headings and bullet points, so that is the area where you should write the information to pull user focus to important areas on your site. By adding these elements your site will be more easily scanned by customers and will increase your search engine ratings.
