Please notice how I used an underscore, _ , between words in web address. You can also use a dash (-) to separate words in addresses. By using underscore or dash, search engines will see words as individual words in a phrase. If not broken up, issuesandarticles, search engines see a single term, DONíT DO THAT!
4. Site Address in Links: When you are building your pages, make sure you name new pages (the htm pages) after your KEYWORDS. Letís examine one of my addresses: My domain name is http://www.overhall.com and Iíve built a page about a dated filing system that I think is a terrific product, that I sell, and that I refer to as a tickler file. My keyword is tickler file. So that page is called tickler_file.htm and address looks like this: http://www.overhall.com ickler_file.htm See how I used my keyword as name of htm page?
Iím still in process of fixing some of my pages because when I made them I didnít know to put my keywords in name of address. I then have to decide whether to keep old ones up on Internet, because people might have bookmarked them, or I can redirect person to new page. Then I have task of resubmitting them to search engines. So, TAKE YOUR TIME when you start building other pages, carefully deciding on your keywords and using them in address.
Okay, using this and last month's lesson, let's see what your web page should look like:
WEB PAGE EXAMPLE: disorganized? organizing help, clutter tips, organizing tools
life you've been dreaming of, clutter free, get an overhall">
Are you sick and tired of being stressed out, disorganized, and frustrated by clutter in your life?

See how I inserted BODY Closing TAG .
This is TAG you insert at bottom or end of your page.
TIP: Each page on your web site needs to be given itís OWN HEAD information.
Editors NOTE: In examples above, anything typed in lower case should be replaced with YOUR title, YOUR description, YOUR keywords, and YOUR author and comment information. In examples above TAGS have been typed in UPPER CASE; however, this is not necessary when entering this information onto your web page. All brackets and other symbols need to be typed in as presented in above examples. All information typed in lower case in BODY should be replaced with your information and links.
Next time image TAGS, until then, Happy TAGGING!
