Meta Tags, Header etc. Meta Tags,repparttar Header, Title, Key Word, Descriptive Tags and such can be found atrepparttar 128417 top of a page, when viewed in Raw or Naked HTML code. This chunk of input is invisible onrepparttar 128418 viewers side, and is only viewable in pure HTML source. This isrepparttar 128419 reason forrepparttar 128420 magic behind it. Search engines are capable of reading this information, and do. This top section of a page largely determines how a page will be placed in a search. To find where to place you Key Words, open up your page in an HTML editor. Openrepparttar 128421 page as HTML only. It should have no pictures and many colored text. Atrepparttar 128422 top you will see input that says <"META NAME"> , <"HEADER"> , <"TITLE"> or something like this. If you can see that, then you've found them! Inrepparttar 128423 space that follows you will see another site of words which may resemble this <"DESCRIPTIVE WORDS"> or <"DESCRIPTION">. this is where you substituterepparttar 128424 input with your key words. The words you use for this section should be formulated usingrepparttar 128425 Key Word you chose earlier. Key words should also be placed inrepparttar 128426 "Key Word" Tag of your page. Key Words should be used inrepparttar 128427 Header, Title etc. Userepparttar 128428 Key Words inrepparttar 128429 body text of your page to begin paragraphs whenever possible. Do not flood your page, however. Search engines prefer about 7 repetitions of Key Words, inrepparttar 128430 body, onrepparttar 128431 average. Specialize each page in your web. Different pages in your domain cover different topics. Use that to its' fullest potential. If you carefully choose descriptive Key Words, that are highly searched, for individual pages, you can turn each page into its own high ranking, viewer magnet. Capturerepparttar 128432 essence of each separate page. For example: Sayrepparttar 128433 individual page is for a product, userepparttar 128434 name, uses / its' trendiness to describe your product inrepparttar 128435 Key word, Meta Tag, Title, etc., of your page, with words specific to this particular page. The results? When people search virtually any aspect of your domain, they will find you. They will also be able to find you through more searches. And this means more chances of getting hits. This is especially good for large domains. But even repparttar 128436 smallest site can get extra needed attention by making their pages search engine ready. A good source for key words can be your highest ranking competitor. To see their key words, simply gotorepparttar 128437 page (of theirs) that you want to knowrepparttar 128438 keywords to. Go torepparttar 128439 top of your browser where you will find a button called View. Click View, fromrepparttar 128440 drop-down menu choose View Source, Or Source Code, or something to this effect. The page displayed will be in Raw HTML. Look towardsrepparttar 128441 top where you will see name like Meta Tag, or Meta Name, etc. And there they are. For you to see.

Links Make sure all of your pages are somehow linked to one another. This is vital for search engines to encompassrepparttar 128442 entire domain. Any unlinked pages will not be indexed (as good as never making it know torepparttar 128443 engine). You can even add invisible GIFs with allrepparttar 128444 links, or written small inrepparttar 128445 color of you background, what ever. Just put it there.

Submitting Now you can submit your pages. I would go here to do it. But if not, try to find a free service / low cost service that either manually submits each page, or has a method which make pages appear manually submitted. Search engines prefer manual submissions. To keep your page scoring well withrepparttar 128446 engines, submit often once or twice a month should be enough. Over submitting can cause your page to be dropped or penalized for Spamming.
