Now lets consider some things that can get you banned fromrepparttar search engines, so pay close attention. These could be more important thanrepparttar 128050 things you should do.

* DO NOT use text that isrepparttar 128051 same color asrepparttar 128052 background. Now this can get tricky. Some people have inadvertently broken this rule and don't know why they were banned. Lets say your site has a white background. So obviously you won't use white text. But what if you have a table on a page that has a black background and you use white text in this table? The search engines don't knowrepparttar 128053 table has a different background. They only know thatrepparttar 128054 page background is white, and suddenly here is white text. Oops! So makerepparttar 128055 textrepparttar 128056 palest gray you can. It will still look white torepparttar 128057 viewer, butrepparttar 128058 search engines will know that its a different color fromrepparttar 128059 background.

* DO NOT hide teeny tiny text somewhere on you page. The search engines knowrepparttar 128060 viewer can't see it, and that you are trying to trickrepparttar 128061 search engines.

* DO NOT use keywords in your meta tags that are irrelevant. some people try to use 'the most searched for words' in their meta tags.... such as, sex, MP3, etc. You getrepparttar 128062 picture. Just stick to keywords that are related to your product or service. Remember thatrepparttar 128063 search engines readrepparttar 128064 content ofrepparttar 128065 page, so if you have keywords that do NOT show up inrepparttar 128066 content, you are likely to be ignored byrepparttar 128067 search engines. It doesn't make repparttar 128068 viewers happy either, if they land on an irrelevant site.

* DO NOT use flash movies, frames, java applets, or image maps. You will chokerepparttar 128069 spiders to death. This is just garbage to them. They can't read it and can't index it. You should also limit your use of javascript and cgi scripts. Javascript will push your content farther down onrepparttar 128070 page, andrepparttar 128071 spiders generally look for content nearrepparttar 128072 top ofrepparttar 128073 page.

Sometimes it isrepparttar 128074 little things that will make or break your listing inrepparttar 128075 search engines. Just use common sense. And always rememberrepparttar 128076 number one thing your site must have to get a good listing onrepparttar 128077 search engines: CONTENT! Without this, allrepparttar 128078 optimization inrepparttar 128079 world just won't do you any good.
