The Resubmission MythWritten by Bobby Heard
So thinking goes, more times you resubmit your site to search engines, better chance that you have of getting to top for your keywords. I canít tell you how much it aggravates me when I hear about another searach engine optimization company who is selling resubmission packages to struggling small-business owners who just want to find one ďprofessionalĒ in this industry who isnít charging them ridiculous prices for NO results. Unfortunately, not only do their clients not understand that they are totally wasting their money and not improving their siteís rankings at all, they are actually paying a company to potentially crush their rankings.
The search engines are a touchy group. As you can imagine, they get hassled constantly, as they hold key to most businessí success. They have systems in place to handle incredible amount of information that they must organize and database. The submission process is simply one of those systems they have, used to inform them of your web siteís presence if they were previously unaware of its existence. Thatís all that it is. Once they are aware of URL of your web site, they will continue to go to it, update it, and most importantly, keep it in their database. So whatís harm in resubmission you ask? Well, itís like sitting in class when your teacher is taking attendance. She calls out your name and you say that you are present. Then, EVERY 5 minutes for rest of day, you put up your hand and remind her that you are still present. This may sound ridiculously stupid, but in essence, that is what you are doing to search engines when you resubmit to them, and search engines can sometimes react by throwing your listing out of their database, just like your teacher is likely to react by throwing you out of her class.
By continually submitting your site, you are creating more work for a major company that is trying (as every company surely is) to create a cost-efficient operation. Your continual submission means that they have more information to process and thus, more money to spend employing someone to deal with that information. The search engines, just like all of us and any successful business, hate wasting money where they donít need to. So if you continually resubmit your site, they get progressively irritated, and will sometimes take drastic measures such as banning your site from their database.
Are You Getting The Most From Your Meta Tags?Written by Francisco Aloy
As any Web Business startup knows, creating a Website is a bunch of work! You have to bother with content, layout, graphics and HTML links, just to name a few. What about your Meta Tags?
Meta Tags are words that are placed in your web page to provide a title, description and keywords to Search Engine spiders or crawlers. They are not visible to visitors. To see a sample, open any website and click "View" on menubar, and choose "Source." You'll see Meta Tags up top, within Head section of web page.
Most Search Engines will rank your site on how well your Meta Tags provide a description of content of your web pages. Google is exception; it also take's into account number and quality of backward links to your website. Here lately, there's been differing opinions on relevancy of Google's Page Rank system. Some experts don't consider it accurate or necessary.
Yet and still, there are many other Search Engines and a further study of Meta Tags is in order. We are going to base our Meta Tags revision on a tool known as a word Frequency Counter. It counts and separates words in a web page or document, giving you an idea of what words are used most.
Here are some Web based Frequency Counters:
