When it comes to HTML, you can always count on accuracy and detail delivering your website’s content in proper order to the search engines. If you are new to website building, or are struggling to understand why your website is not performing this article may be of tremendous value to you.
First, let’s look at meta tags, these are the main points of interest to the search engines, they do not look at a webpage as humans do, so meta tags are the brail, if you will, to what they see. Meta tags should always be between the <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags, like so:
<title>(Your Website Title)</title>
<meta name=”description” content=”(Your website’s description) “>
<meta name=”keywords” content=”keyword,keyword,keyword,etc “>
<meta name=”Author” content=”www.your-website.com”>
<meta name=”owner” content=”www.your-website.com”>
<meta name=”classification” content=”(The main subject matter of your site) “>
<meta name=”copyright” content=”copyrighted 2006″>
<meta name=”rating” content=”General”>
<meta name=”revisit-after” content=”15 days”>
<meta name=”ROBOTS” content=”ALL”>
The <BODY> section is where all the content goes about your site, closed by </BODY>
The next step is to have the search engines focus on your main points of interest. You can call attention to these words or phrases inside your content section using HEADING symbols;
<H1> Making Money Online </H1>
<H2>Top Paying Keywords</H2>
<H3> Landscape Rock </H3>
Just encase these phrases with the <H1></H1> etc, wherever they fall within the content.
This draws special attention to the search engines and helps your site rank higher in the search engines. Do not use more than 3 <H> tags or it will only distract from what the search engines consider important on your webpage.
In your keyword meta tags above, adding the right keywords is important. Use keywords that highlight your subject matter, but avoid using, a, and, the, more, less, again, those type of words are frowned upon by the search engines. Search engines don’t actually read, they just want to know the relevant words in your content.
Using Top Paying Keywords is a way to increase your Adsense Ads revenue, if you use them to benefit from the content or subject matter of your webpage. This is a very valuable asset you can add to your site, if you apply the right keywords.
Alternate tags is another great way to align your website for optimum display for the search engines. Alternate tags are used with images or pictures on your webpage. They allow the search engines to recognize the picture with words you provide. For example;
A picture html description would look like this:
<img border=”0″ src=”internet-traffic-2.gif”>
By adding the alternate tag, you can add keywords that are relevant to the picture or the content of your page, like this:
<img border=”0″ alt=”website traffic” src=”internet-traffic-2.gif” >
Anchor Text is a way to focus on keywords that link to another page or website. Again, search engines really like this and it draws attention to the relationship of keywords and relevant webpages or other websites.
