3. Get Involved NOW with a Good Link placement service.

There is no faster way to increase your link popularity and search engine relevance then to get involved in a good link placement service. But be careful: most ofrepparttar free-for-all (FFA) pages will drop your listing very quickly (often within hours). Rather than spending endless time posting over and over to multiple FFA sites, choose one that retains your listing and work it to your advantage.

Look for a link placement service that rapidly submits your site to a large number of link pages, then retains your site for an extended period of time. In this way you will increase your visibility forrepparttar 128184 search engine spiders which will result in significantly better positioning onrepparttar 128185 major search engines.

For many online businessesrepparttar 128186 link placement of choice is Linkomatic, which has been in business for over two years and has a proprietary network of 3500+ link sites. Because Linkomatic has exclusive control of their network and does not allow outside submissions, listings are retained on their pages for a much longer period of time.

Businesses submit their site each week torepparttar 128187 exclusive Linkomatic network, andrepparttar 128188 result is better positioning withrepparttar 128189 major search engines. To learn more about how this top link placement works, visit http://www.linkomatic.com

How to get listed at NBCi

Continued from page 1

Unfortunately,repparttar free way has its problems. If your site doesn't get enough clicks, it will get buried underrepparttar 128183 enormous heap of regular directory & LiveDirectory results and you'll never get someone to review your site, not to mention getting any traffic. To avoid these problems, you're going to have to achieve two things.

The most important thing is to select keywords you can obtain a decent rank under. There's no sense in trying to go forrepparttar 128184 most popular keywords that already produce hundreds of matches withinrepparttar 128185 main directory. As I said before,repparttar 128186 LiveDirectory listings only come up if no matches are found inrepparttar 128187 main directory, all matches that have been found are exhausted or ifrepparttar 128188 user specifically requests to see LiveDirectory results. If you target too popular keywords, you'll be buried underrepparttar 128189 results fromrepparttar 128190 main directory and will not attract too many clicks. I recommend that you try to find keywords that are relevant and used fairly often, but don't result in many main directory sites turning up.

After findingrepparttar 128191 right keywords, you'll have to get your site close torepparttar 128192 top ofrepparttar 128193 LiveDirectory results fromrepparttar 128194 beginning. Asrepparttar 128195 NBCi LiveDirectory does not spider, you'll have to make sure thatrepparttar 128196 description and title you enter contain a nice amount of keywords. I recommend placingrepparttar 128197 keyword you feel is most important in your title once or twice, and 2-4 times in your description. You should also attempt to squeeze a few of your less important keywords into your description, and if possible, one or two in your title wouldn't hurt either. By making sure that your title and description contain several instances of your most important keyword, you're increasing your chances of getting a high LiveDirectory ranking fromrepparttar 128198 get-go.

OK, you just readrepparttar 128199 above and are thinking "Boy, I'm gonna make my NBCi title and description look like a META keywords tag and grab 'em top rankings easily!".. I'm sorry to say, but that alone won't cut it. As I have described above, user clickthroughs determine whether your site will get intorepparttar 128200 main directory or not. Do you think that an unattractive list of keywords as your description and title will get you many clicks? Didn't think so.

As you're going to need to attract people to click on your site when it shows up inrepparttar 128201 results, you're going to want to make a compromise between a keyword-stuffed description and a description that attracts people to click. As clicks count towards getting your site torepparttar 128202 main directory and also boost your ranking inrepparttar 128203 LiveDirectory, you should focus on gettingrepparttar 128204 clicks. If you can add a heavy amount of keywords to your title and description without sacrificing too much of its attractiveness, then do it. But always remember to think 'Would I click, if I was searching and this result came up?'.

With these words, I hope that you now have some insight on howrepparttar 128205 NBCi system works (some ofrepparttar 128206 more experienced might have noticed thatrepparttar 128207 system is actually pretty similar to Direct Hit's) and are able to get fromrepparttar 128208 LiveDirectory torepparttar 128209 regular directory.
