TOP SECRET tips
Worthwhile Do-It-Yourself Website Optimization Tips
I get asked alot about search engine optimization. My focus now is Search Advertising (paid search) but I do provide tips and techniques to my clients I feel are easy to accomplish and won't take more than 10 minutes to do...
The following website optimization tips are provided as a service of eSourceAgent.com. Please visit www.esourceagent.com/demo to find out about us.
TIP # 1: Submit your site to Google in 30 seconds...
Go to the first page on your site and copy the web address. It will look like http://www.mywebsite.com.
Now open up the Google site submission page at www.Google.com/addurl/
Paste your address in the URL field and enter the "squiggly letter" security word that they show you. That's it! You have successfully submitted your site to Google. If you can access all the pages on your site from the home page through links then there is no need to submit other pages. You will want to individually submit any deep pages (pages that have no links from the front page).
TIP #2: Submit your site to DMOZ.org
Submit your site to DMOZ.org. Google uses the DMOZ directory to supplement its search results. Click through the categories until you find one you believe your site matches. Then hit the suggest URL link and submit your site. This process can take a while because the categories are human monitored and your site will be reviewed prior to inclusion.
TIP #3: Submit your site to YAHOO!
Add your site to the Yahoo! Directory. http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/dir/suggest/index.html
