Heading Tags

SEO Book

Header tags  are an effective way to communicate to the SE and readers what a page is about.  They are given more weight by SE than regular body copy. So they should be used wisely to reinforce the page’s  overall keyword theme.

<h1> defines the largest heading and <h6> defines the smallest heading.

H1 Tag

This is the most important Heading tag for getting good rankings. Place the H1 tag at the top of your page. It should be the  first item of your page content. The H1 tag is another essential element where you can increase your Keywords relevance. This  falls right under the Title Tag for important in ranking factor.
I suggest that the H1 tag matches the Title tag exactly or as close as possible. Only use one H1 tag per page. This will  reinforce the overall theme of your website.

H2 tag

The H2 tag can either reinforce your main Keyword or bring in your secondary Keyword for that particular page. Don’t overdo  it.
You can include the other Head Tags, 3-6, if they are actually useful in your site design.
If you use several Heading Tags, then use the larger tags first on the page and work down from there.
When your Title Tag, H1 Tag contain your Keywords I can say you are pretty well on your way to higher rankings.
Now when you add your Key Phrase to your content the whole theme of your page is about your Keyword. Things are really  falling into place.
You now are optimized better than most other websites out there, but there are a few more tips to add to this.

How you insert your keywords into the points mentioned will play a role in your SEO results. When you use formatting, such as  “Bold” to highlight a word or phrase, you are telling your visitors and search engines that this word or phrase carries more weight and is important. Thus you can increase your results by using this method with your Keywords.

7 steps to get backlinks

Search Engine Optimization: Do It Yourself - Kindle Bestseller (The Definitive Do It Yourself Guide to SEO)
There are several thing that you need to work with when you are trying to optimize your site.

One of these things is to create backlinks. But when you  are using links to build your website, you know, or will be aware of, that it is very time consuming. There has to be another way to get the links without you spending time asking to use the links on your site. There is a way to do this process. There is a strategy that has seven steps you can use.

To use link building, you find target websites. You review to decide if you think it is worth adding the site to yours. You research the contact person then send them a request to use their link. You sit and wait for their response.

There are many things you can to do to build your link popularity without sending out direct requests.
Here are some tips for getting the links:

1. Join an online discussion group and forum. Begin to be an active participant. When you join the community you will be able to spot the people who are building a productive business. When you create a strong relationship with these people, they will ask to link to your site. They will want to be linked with another profitable business.

2. Make a remark on your website where you state you desire more links. In the statement, ask for the links and add a spot for the person to write the linking code to their site that uses keywords phrases in the text. Use a proclamation similar to “If you find this site helpful, add your link so others can also benefit from this site.”

3. Publish a standard newsletter. Post the content of the newsletter on your site. Incorporate a statement in the newsletter “If you have enjoyed the newsletter, please include a link to your site.” Include your URL in the statement.

4. Publish articles on other sites such as ezines, informational sites, article banks, and media sites. There are several article sites on the internet so simple Google “article submission sites” and use the sites to transmit your message in the article.

5. Use well written content on the site and with all your publications. It is an old method but it is very successful. The better the content then you will draw people to your site where they will see your message about adding a link to your site.

6. Submit your site to legitimate award sites. When you share your site with these sites you will be amazed the great responses since you have great content on your site. They will want to link to your site.

7. Volunteer to become an editor for several directories. You then write down reviews for the sites of your own sites where you will have opportunities of getting to know the market better. When you know the market better you build a better network of peers.

Traffic For Your Business

Everyone wants traffic to their website. It is not always easy
to get more people to visit your site. There are ways to
generate the desired traffic. It takes being creative and
innovative sometimes; yet here are several ideas that will help.

1. Use Flickr. Social photo sharing drives people to your
website. Add good tags to the photos so they attract the members
on the site. Write a post in your blog and add the link to the
Flickr site. The two sites will work in unison to draw traffic
to your site.

2. Join a social bookmarking site. Share your favorite sites
with other people sharing the same interests. Include your
website. The social sites are like a specific search engine for
many people. Add the bookmarks to your blog site to increase
your internet traffic. Add interesting links to relevant
products that the users are searching for. The more interesting
links you have bookmarked the larger your following will become.

3. Start blogging. Join several sites where you comment on the
blog posts. Add your URL with posting. Keep in mind you are
commenting on your posts so remain focused on the topic since
you do not want your posting to be deleted or considered as
spam. You want to appear knowledgeable and someone others can

4. Use forum signatures for promotion of your site with a live
link. Use topics with great information and link them back to
your sties. The more information you provide the readers the
more they will rely on you for your new information. They will
return repeatedly to read what you are posting.

5. Add widgets, themes, and extension to your site. There are
many free additions that will enhance your site. Make your site
interesting rather than the typical boring website. Make your
site user friendly and exciting. Users want to see and
experience new things, give it to them with your site.

6. Use your friends to know your business and have them help
spread the word about your website. They can use their personal
blogs, websites, and contacts to increase your website traffic.

7. Use industry specific sites to add links and networks with by
contacting the websites. Many are willing to join the cause to
help your build your website traffic.

8. Expand your exposure by adding podcasts to your site. Include
audio and video that is interesting and intriguing.

9. Submit your feed to blog site directories. The feed will
drive traffic from another site to your site.
Last but not least:

10. Submit articles to article directories, using the resource
box to drive traffic to your site and establish strong backlinks
to your site; for the Search Engines.

When you do your traffic building, it is not really about the
traffic but offering what the readers want. When you reach out
to them with information and products you service a valuable

Directories – Directory services for your sites

Submitting your web site to the various online directories is an important part of any Link Popularity campaign. While your traffic from many directories may be negligible or irrelevant, appropriate incoming links to your website will help in your overall search engine link popularity.

Paying  for your directory submission can be a  waste of coin. You can get just as good a result from submitting to free directories. I wouldn’t advise website owners pay for what anyone can get free elsewhere.  The best directories to submit your site to are Search Engine Friendly directories those that indeed have your site URL listed at some point, rather than outlinks that are simply code. Some will ask for a reciprocal link, some will not. Directories that do not encode outgoing links will help your website’s Search Engine Ranking.

Most directories will have many categories you can submit your site to. Decide on the one that is most related, preferably a keyword that you are aiming for high search engine ranking in, and try to submit to the same or much the same category in every directory, at least for your main page. This will increase the ranking of your site relating to the keyword chosen. Submit to different categories as long as your website is appropriate to those categories. This will increase the number of incoming links to your website.

Describe your website in a way that will attract visitors. The length of your description will vary from directory to directory, but most will be under 250 characters. Some will allow up to 1,000 characters. It is a good idea to write several descriptions of different lengths, say from under 50 characters for a brief overview, to around 150 characters for a fuller description, up to two hunderd and fifty characters for a yet more in depth listing. Keep your listing pertinent to your website, insert keywords where related and appropriate, but do not just submit a keyword listing, as most directories will reject your submission. Save all your descriptions in a text file, and just copy & paste into the descriptions boxes when needed rather than typing the same descriptions out again and again.

Make a list of all suitable keywords for your site, from most superior to least, and basically keep adding keywords until either you get to the bottom of your list Check what keywords your competitors are going for. This can often be performed by viewing the source of a web page and checking the META tags. Again, save your keywords to a text file.

Here are some FREE directories that can submit your Website URL’s too

Link Building – Building Trusted Links

 SEO link building is one strategy found to work for almost every webmaster who puts the time and money into building links. But while the popular search engines like Google and Yahoo aren’t 100% transparent, there is a trend that these search engines are taking to reduce the ranking of sites that are using non-trusted backlinks.

When webmasters realised that one way to increase search engine ranking was by having lots of sites link back to their site, they started submitting links all over the place. They also negotiated with different websites to have their links listed on their site. This actually works great since link building is considered the trump card of increasing web traffic. But the search engines have become privy to the tactics used by websites to improve search engine ranking, and now they want to weed out the sites that aren’t using trusted links when SEO link building. A trusted site is one that isn’t full of advertisements. It’s a site that provides content to users and doesn’t exist for the mere purpose of making money. When a blogger finds your website and links back to it from a blog post, that’s a trusted link.  In an attempt to get more backlinks, if you’ve worked out a deal with a website that carries nothing but Google ads and very little valuable content, that’s not going to get you very far.


Local Seo

If  you own a local business with a website and want people to be able to find you through the search engines. The following are some local search engine optimization methods that will help you to rank better. One of the most easiest methods you can use for local SEO is writing optimized classified ads. This is a simple way to take advantage of local search efforts, search engines really like those kinds of sites and use them the more likely that you can send targeted local traffic to your business’s website.

When you are beginning start with Craigslist because it is the most popular classified web site on the internet. As a business owner you need to be sure that you are posting optimized ads on Craigslist. Make sure that the ad is not loud and that it is as simple as possible. When you write the ad, focus on the title because this is what increases most of the response.

Most local websites that are targeted by local businesses are fine with the idea of a business owner asking customers to log on to the site and leave reviews.  Since this is an allowable practice and your local SEO can benefit from it
It’s a good idea to take advantage of services such as Google Places, Bing Local and Yahoo! Local, and claiming your profile is your first step on these sites. All you have to do is complete some boxes and verify your address and phone number.

People who search are impressed with pictures, and it makes them assume someone is more authentic, so it’s a good idea to upload pictures to your profile on these local site listings. Just find some good quality pictures from your site and upload them to give you a more effective listing. Use the best pictures you can to show your business in a good light, but they don’t have to be taken by a professional photographer. Every SEO marketer knows the value of long tail keywords and how they can help you rank better in the search engines and when you’re working with Local SEO, that’s exactly what you’re doing. Long tail keywords allow you to play around with the anchor texts of your links, the diversification of your anchor texts and you are better able to expand your efforts.

keeping these local SEO strategies in mind, you can get more traffic and better ranking for your local business..

Search Engines vs Directories

"Search engine" and "Web directory" are two different search services available; although they are often mistakenly confused.

Search engines are built up by robots or crawlers; whereas Web directories build up their indices through human editors. Many search engines and directories contain both a computer-generated index and a human generated index.
Search engines write programs known as robots, crawlers and/or spiders that have the following functions:

Locate Web pages

Read the contents of the Web pages

Report its findings back to the search engine databases

Many search engines update their index either on a bi-monthly or monthly basis. When Web searchers use a search engine to locate Web sites that are relevant to the keyword search, they are searching the search engine's index.

A search engine with a larger and more up-to-date index is a better representation of the information available in the Web. 

Search Engines Differences

There are many examples of the differences between search engines. For instance, for Yahoo! and Bing, on-page keyword factors are of primary importance, while for Google links are very, very important. Also, for Google the older, the better, while Yahoo! generally has no preference towards sites and domains with tradition. Thus you might need more time till your site gets mature to be admitted to the top in Google, than in Yahoo!.

What Is SEO

SEO is a technique which helps search engines find and rank your site higher than the millions of other sites in response to a search query. SEO thus helps you get traffic from search engines.

How Search Engines Work

The first basic truth you need to know to learn SEO is that search engines are not humans. While this might be obvious for everybody, the differences between how humans and search engines view web pages aren’t. Unlike humans, search engines are text-driven.  Search engines are far from intelligent creatures that can feel the beauty of a cool design or enjoy the sounds and movement in movies. Instead, search engines crawl the Web, looking at particular site items (mainly text) to get an idea what a site is about. This brief explanation is not the most precise because as we will see next.
First, search engines crawl the Web to see what is there. This task is performed by a piece of software, called a crawler or a spider. Spiders follow links from one page to another and index everything they find on their way. Having in mind the number of pages on the Web, it is impossible for a spider to visit a site daily just to see if a new page has appeared or if an existing page has been modified, sometimes crawlers may not end up visiting your site for a month or two.
What you can do is to check what a crawler sees from your site. As already mentioned, crawlers are not humans and they do not see images, Flash movies, JavaScript, frames, password-protected pages and directories, so if you have tons of these on your site, you’d better run the Spider Simulator  see if these goodies are viewable by the spider. If they are not viewable, they will not be spidered, not indexed, not processed, they will be non-existent for search engines
After a page is crawled, the next step is to index its content. The indexed page is stored in a giant database, from where it can later be retrieved. Essentially, the process of indexing is identifying the words and expressions that best describe the page and assigning the page to particular keywords. For a human it will not be possible to process such amounts of information but generally search engines deal just fine with this task. Sometimes they might not get the meaning of a page right but if you help them by optimizing it, it will be easier for them to classify your pages correctly and for you – to get higher rankings.
The last step in search engines’ activity is retrieving the results. Basically, it is nothing more than simply displaying them in the browser
