You may even consider setting up a dedicated web site under a foreign TLD (top level domain) in order to achieve multiple entries in this prime traffic pusher.

Generally speaking search engines will not index search results on your web site. This leaves you with a database full of rich information but no way forrepparttar 128203 search engines to index it!

There is a simple way around this: store your content in a dual format. One version is kept inrepparttar 128204 database and another in static html formatted files. The static version is then submitted and indexed byrepparttar 128205 search engines. This is a programming free, 20 minute process as you will see below.

If you don't have a large content database here is what to do, visit your site and perform a search that returnsrepparttar 128206 largest amount of results from you database. Storerepparttar 128207 source code ofrepparttar 128208 search result page to a static html file and publish this file to your web site.

1) Creatingrepparttar 128212 static pages: visit your web site online and perform a single search for each major content category, eg: "history books" might be one category. At each result screen saverepparttar 128213 source code to a html file. It's worthwhile taking care inrepparttar 128214 naming ofrepparttar 128215 individual html files. The name could be in-line withrepparttar 128216 category names. Repeat this for allrepparttar 128217 categories.
