Do you use a side navigation bar on your website? Many of us do - it makes for an eye-catching, easy-to-use navigational layout. The received wisdom is generally to place these sidebars (constructed by using tables) torepparttar 117367 left ofrepparttar 117368 page. The main reason for doing this is that visitors reading western scripts read from left to right, and are therefore more likely to be drawn to text atrepparttar 117369 beginning of a reading line. This is great, but unfortunately, search engines don't read like us humans. If a page has tables in it, a search engine robot will read from left to right, yes, but it will readrepparttar 117370 entire contents of a table before moving on torepparttar 117371 next one, since it treats anything afterrepparttar 117372 tab as main body text, even if we don't intend it to be. Chances are that your web pages are laid out with tables;repparttar 117373 first containing a logo, then second containingrepparttar 117374 navigation bar, and subsequent tables (appearing torepparttar 117375 right ofrepparttar 117376 navigation bar) withrepparttar 117377 text WE view asrepparttar 117378 main body text. This means that your keyword rich text often doesn't appear until some way downrepparttar 117379 page as far asrepparttar 117380 search engine robot is concerned. Since search engines determine relevancy by analyzingrepparttar 117381 occurrence of words, particularly atrepparttar 117382 top ofrepparttar 117383 page, this type of layout is ultimately going to hurt your rankings. I've struggled to find ways of overcoming this problem inrepparttar 117384 past; e.g; introductory keyword rich text aboverepparttar 117385 logo and keywords inrepparttar 117386 side bar. I achieved some success using these methods, but as a webmaster in a competitive sector, I've been unhappy about with leaving my carefully honed body text so far "down"repparttar 117387 page, when maybe competitors hadrepparttar 117388 edge. Then I discovered a way to arrangerepparttar 117389 table layout so that text you want humans to see also appears first to robots. You simply ADD ANOTHER VERY SMALL CELL to your table layout. It's difficult to illustrate exactly what I mean in an e-mail text - repparttar 117390 easiest way is to takerepparttar 117391 following HTML examples, cut-and-paste them to them into text editor, and from there, into your HTML editor, then comparerepparttar 117392 results; First an example of a typical table layout, which leaves The body text inrepparttar 117393 wrong place;

I'm just amazed that more people don't realise it! Ebay has a secret that makes it THE best market inrepparttar 117370 world offline or online! In fact it's THE best market EVER. Do I sound enthusiastic about Ebay?! I do! good - I love it.

Let me give you an example of why I love Ebay.

Years ago I set up my very first business to help me pay my way through college. It was a stall selling antiques (well more like rubbish!) in Camden market in London (yes, sorry I'm a Brit!).

When I started I didn't have a clue. I went through allrepparttar 117371 junk I'd collected overrepparttar 117372 years and put that as "stock". Then I went to a number of auctions, rooted about in boxes and bought some that looked "promising".

Then I rented my stall (5.30am to get a spare table) set up my "stuff" and waited. 9 hours later, after watching person after person performrepparttar 117373 3 P's (Pick up, Put down and P*** off! - apologies forrepparttar 117374 language but it ISrepparttar 117375 official term amongst UK dealers) I began realising that my items only appeared promising to ME!

During this time of sitting stiffly, trying to disappear into my jacket both to keep warm and from sheer embarrassment, I noticed that certain dealers seemed to act like magnets. People didn't simply go to them to performrepparttar 117376 rites ofrepparttar 117377 3 P's, they actually lingered, discussed and, joy of joys - reached into their wallets and bought!

Overrepparttar 117378 weeks I ventured over to these stalls and hovered while I watchedrepparttar 117379 magnificent spectacle of customers parting with cash! Eventually even I couldn't help notice that certain items seemed to be selling more regularly than others, and, as some ofrepparttar 117380 dealers took pity on an earnest young man (I developed a helpless sort of pitiful look that worked a treat!) I began to learnrepparttar 117381 business of buying items that people actually WANT to buy. And miracle of miracles camerepparttar 117382 day when I actually made more profit than I was paying in rent forrepparttar 117383 stall!

The absolute, sheer, magnificent beauty of Ebay is you don't have to go through all that. I don't think there can be any market, of any kind, where so much information is available torepparttar 117384 public. Because Ebay allows you to SEARCH COMPLETED AUCTIONS for free! And that is an advantage no other market allows. Everything you could possibly need to know is there, available to you just forrepparttar 117385 time required to root it out.

Now imagine, if back then, at Camden market I had been allowedrepparttar 117386 same advantage.

Firstly, before going anywhere near an auction, I could have had a good look at WHAT KIND OF THINGS WERE IN DEMAND. The dealers attracting all those people atrepparttar 117387 market had learnt overrepparttar 117388 years what kind of items were ready sellers and what was likely to sit there for months tying up valuable space and capital. With Ebay you can searchrepparttar 117389 completed auctions looking atrepparttar 117390 relative "SELL THRU RATES" (percentage of sales to total number of auctions) and condense those years of trial and error to a few days or weeks of evening study.
