How To Use Search Engines To Get More Traffic For Your Website

Using The Search Engines To Get Visitors To Your Website

To get good web traffic, you need to submit your website to the search engines. However, this alone will not guarantee that your site will receive a good steady flow of visitors. You really must work to get your website recognized. It is best to focus your efforts on the important search engines rather than chasing traffic from all search engines.

If the web search engines do not have your site indexed, then it might as well not exist. You will probably get some traffic through referrals, but this will not be enough to guarantee the success of your site. You cannot afford to put all your time and effort into making the perfect site. No matter how much effort you put into getting your site just right, including that flashy flash intro and the extensive links page complete with animated gifs, without traffic your time has been wasted.

You will need to ensure you allocate some time to promoting your site. The first search engine you need to focus on is Google. There are a great many search engines on the internet, but the reality today is it comes down to just one: Google. It is the most popular search engine on the net and provides the most search results. Therefore, you need to ensure that your site is listed on Google.

Of course, Yahoo is important too. Once you are listed in Google, you then focus on getting listed on Yahoo. If you can get a good, high rating in these two web search engines, you will most probably receive good volumes of traffic to your site. The third search engine I would consider is Bing Search. None of the other free web search engines can provide you with the volume of visitors that these three can. Therefore, there is no need to put time into ensuring your site is indexed with them or ranks well.

The best way to ensure that your website gets a lot of traffic is to have a high search engine rank, especially in Google. When your website has a high search engine rank, it will appear within the first few pages of results returned by Google, Yahoo, BING, and others.  This can make a significant difference to the number of visitors that go to your website.

Just think about the way you conduct your own searches. When you enter a term into Google, you probably click most of the links on the first page of results, and a few on the second page. Do you ever make it as far as page 7 or page 10? It’s not likely. So, you can see why a good search engine rank is critical to the success of your business.

Websites that have a high search engine rank have a couple of characteristics in common. First, they feature pages and pages of relevant content. This means if you’re selling accounting services, you should have a lot of articles about accounting, taxes, and bookkeeping. When you do this, your website will naturally contain numerous keywords that people searching for accounting services would enter Google, Yahoo, etc.

The more keywords you have, the better your search engine rank. Another characteristic of successful websites is the number of links they have to and from other sites. When other websites link to yours and when you link to others, it makes your website appear more important, relevant, and legitimate. This results in a higher search engine rank.

At this point, you might be thinking to yourself that only fantastic marketers are able to achieve a high search engine rank for their websites. That’s not entirely true. Since a good search engine rank is so critical to web-based businesses these days, there are a lot of companies that specialize in getting you the best placement possible. They can provide you with original, targeted content for your site; give you tips on how to effectively market your site; and submit your URL to Google, Yahoo, BING, and other engines for consideration. If they do their job the right way, you’ll have a prime search engine rank within a few months.

The importance of a high search engine rank shouldn’t be underestimated. Before you start selling on the Internet, you should consider hiring professionals to help you quickly achieve good placement for your website. The difference between appearing on the first page or the tenth could literally amount to tens of thousands of dollars, so do what you have to in order to get a high search engine rank as soon as possible.

Search Engine Friendly Pages

There is no point in building a website unless there are visitors coming in. A major source of traffic for most sites on the Internet is search engines like Google, BING, Yahoo, etc. By designing a search engine friendly site, you will be able to rank easily in search engines and obtain more visitors.

Major search engines use programs called crawlers or robots to index websites to list on their search result pages. They follow links to a page, reads the content of the page and record it in their own database, pulling up the listing as people search for it.

If you want to make your site indexed easily, you should avoid using frames on your website. Frames will only confuse search engine robots and they might even abandon your site because of that. Moreover, frames make it difficult for users to bookmark a specific page on your site without using long, complicated scripts.

Do not present important information in Flash movies or in images. Search engine spiders can only read text on your source code so if you present important words in Flash movies and images rather than textual form, your search engine ranking will be affected dramatically.

Use meta tags accordingly on each and every page of your site so that search engine robots know at first glance what that particular page is about and whether or not to index it. By using meta tags, you are making the search engine robot’s job easier, so they will crawl and index your site more frequently.

Stop using wrong HTML tags like <font> to style your page. Use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) instead because they are more effective and efficient. By using CSS, you can eliminate redundant HTML tags and make your pages much lighter and faster to load.
