Getting a Google Page Rank 3 in Six Months

Written by Geraldine Jensen

I enteredrepparttar world of website ownership in July of 2004. I did a Google search for “websites for sale” and found that e-Bay was a big seller. I had learned some web programming asrepparttar 131616 acting webmaster for a non-profit organization. My training consisted of reading, Learning Web Design: A Beginners Guide to HTML, Graphics and Beyond by Jennifer Neiderst.

Many websites are for sale on e-Bay. After watchingrepparttar 131617 ads for a couple of weeks I decided to buy three sites: a diet site (, a travel site (, and a web tools reseller site ( My choice was based onrepparttar 131618 domain names,repparttar 131619 product being sold, andrepparttar 131620 sense they were good products to sell. I had read an article that said search engines were more likely to index and rank a website whererepparttar 131621 product or topic was part ofrepparttar 131622 domain name. My total investment was less than $300. The diet site was a drop-shipping business and requiredrepparttar 131623 most time. The travel site was an affiliate so no web programming was needed, only advertising. The web tools site required some web programing. I decided that a few additional web tools to sell would be good, so back to e-Bay I went to purchase more software to sell.

Next came submittingrepparttar 131624 sites to search engines. I found where you can submit sites for free---this definitely fit my budget. I also hand-submittedrepparttar 131625 sites to Dmoz, Yahoo (free), AltaVista and any other directories I could find. I found, a directory of directories and submittedrepparttar 131626 sites to as many ofrepparttar 131627 directories as possible. I also began to do searches based onrepparttar 131628 keywords of my websites and did addrepparttar 131629 url, or submit site, or exchange links to those who offered it. I figured that people searching for my product were likely to findrepparttar 131630 same sites I found.

Written by J. Ratliff

We all know what SEO is, and it seems like it has kind of an "executive" sound to it doesn't it? The truth is, thousands of webmasters spend millions of dollars every year on SEO services. Now, I am not discountingrepparttar importance of these services.

Indeed, SEO is very important not only torepparttar 131615 big website portals, but to your website as well.

However, I do believe that a lot ofrepparttar 131616 people who spend thousands annually, do so without needing to. I have done SEO work on a dozen websites for businesses, and about 20 of my own. My secret? It's all inrepparttar 131617 software.
