Is your web site well ranked (In top ten search results) in results? If not, you need to read this and get ranking you always dreamed of getting with your web site! I will show you how to get your web site a top ten ranking in search engines with these few easy-to-do steps.
Site Design - The web site's structure will decide how spiders read your web site and speed of them indexing web pages. There should be more text content then HTML content. You should avoid programs such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver. Such programs will add coding that isn't necessary and also they may add coding errors. The pages should validate and be usable in all of todays leading browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Netscape, etc.). Also look at your web site in a text browser, this will give you good idea of what spiders see and if it can work with a text browser, it can work with just about any other browser.
Stay away from using Java, Flash, Java script, scripting such as that can trap spiders, which will result in them not to index your content. Go external with scripting languages if you need them that bad, use something such as CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). Your web site should respond almost instantly to requests. If you get into 3 to 4 seconds delay until it loads, you need to cut down on images and overall web page size. Keep web page under 20k if at all possible, but keep it at least at 5k. Don't use frames, neither visitors nor search engines like it and shouldn't be used for any reason.
Content - Web pages should have 200 to 1500 words. Put your target keywords in bold, underline, heading and italics text. Spiders reads web pages top to bottom and they also know that main keyword should appear in first few sentences. Which means your targeted keywords should appear high on page, within first few words, also they should be in middle and towards end of articles. The keyword density should be between 5 and 15%, but don't lose sleep over it, just make sure you get a density of 5%.
Meta and Title Tags - Meta tags are thought by many SEO experts to have little impact, If any at all, but it's still recommended, just in case it's still a factor. The description tag is still sometimes used in search engines as description of web site, so try to be creative and describe your web page's content and not just for search engines, but for visitors as well. Also remember not to use same description tag for each web page, some search engines may think page is too much like other pages and end up banning you.
