A thought, sorry question, on which to end...

With allrepparttar 128430 comments and articles about search engines and so many people spending so much time and effort "trying to getrepparttar 128431 better of them", why don't more web marketers rather spend their valuable energies in activities, which they CAN CONTROL to some extent. Once you have posted torepparttar 128432 major search engines, monitor your positioning from time to time (say once a month) then LET BE. You'll never beat them, because their policies change allrepparttar 128433 time. Start concentrating on MARKETING and carving out a unique niche for yourself onrepparttar 128434 net with your particular products.

Hope this info may help you readers "out there in cyberspace".

Go for it and good luck.

Secrets to Getting MORE Search Engine Hits

Your local supermarket has been doing this for years. You go to buy a jug of milk and a loaf of bread and end up walking out with a couple of bags of extra stuff and $60 less in your wallet. They often pricerepparttar milk at cost or less to get you into repparttar 128429 store but they know thatrepparttar 128430 loss will be more than made up for with your impulse item purchases.

Give them Content - and lots of it

If your site is about cooking, then put as much cooking information as possible on your site. Put cookware reviews, stove recommendations, healthy eating guides, microwave tips, interviews with famous chefs, etc. You could even offer other related information such as: wine recommendations for certain meals, calorie guides, links to famous restaurants, nutritional charts, etc..

Make it useful, relevant and valuable to your visitor. If they are impressed, it is likely that they will come back and even tell a friend or two about "that great new site that I just found".

Where can I get this Content?

No, you do not have to write allrepparttar 128431 information yourself. Although if you can put together original content it is even more effective.

Simply search around for top quality content by going to your favorite Search Engines, ezines, libraries, magazines, books, newspapers, etc. You can also get ideas for great material by tuning into radio and TV programs that specialize in your area of interest.

Always, always, always give credit torepparttar 128432 source ofrepparttar 128433 information. Plagiarizing will often get yourepparttar 128434 wrong kind of attention. For a good example ofrepparttar 128435 ills of plagiarism check out this article...

Here are some tips that I have found to be especially helpful in drawing higher rankings for your content pages.

1) Use High Interest words inrepparttar 128436 page title and first few lines

Even if you come up with a top 20 listing, you still must compete with 19 other sites for that visitors attention. Give them a good reason to click onto YOUR link.

2) Name Searches

Many web searches are done for peoples names. Historical figures, modern day personalities, authors, big name marketers, etc.. These get thousands of search requests. If you can include in your site, book reviews and articles that use famous names, you will see more visitors that might normally never find your site.

3) Speaking of book reviews...

On my site I have a section devoted to selling books for Amazon. As far as it being a moneymakerrepparttar 128437 thing is a bust. It ain't working! Nobody is buying. So why don't I just take it down and scraprepparttar 128438 bookselling business?

Well, it brings in tons of hits from people who are searching specifically for those books and authors that are reviewed on my site. Okay, so they don't buyrepparttar 128439 book (the odd one might though), but they do click through to other pages on repparttar 128440 site and sign up for my ezine and other programs.

These 3 suggestions have worked wonders for my stats pages and ultimatelyrepparttar 128441 bottom line too. They certainly won't replace your other marketing efforts, but can provide a nice supplement to them.
