Search Engine Optimization(SEO) is a useful tool for any business. It gets your name ranked in Google so that traffic to your site increases. As you build an online presence it only makes sense that you keep track of it. You can use tools like Alexa and the Google toolbar to check on your current ranking. If you’re running a blog you should also notice which posts generate the most traffic and see where they rank and what keywords were used to get it there. If you’re in need of keywords to help advertise business, look toward Google Adwords.
Also, add your site to search engine indexes. Search engines use crawlers (sometimes referred to as spiders) to browse for pages. Basically if you’re generating good content, rankings, and linking the amount of times your site is crawled will increase. Overall this will help you. It’s a way of creating faster searches and up-to-date data.
However, keywords are your best friends when you want to get search engine’s attention. titles, content, links, and image names can all include keywords. Just be sure that you use them wisely. They must be appropriate and they must be used effectively. Too many will get your material labeled as spam, too little won’t get your page noticed. Also, link internally to pages with keywords or relevant text. The more you link to your own site, the more traffic each page will get.
Other good practices are to add image descriptions, avoid flash and other media that isn’t used by every format. Link to associates. Having an alliance will boost both of your reputations. When you’ve build yourself a cornerstone and these foundations it’s time to keep traffic going through social media sites, like Twitter. Good luck!
