Why Flash movies is a big no-no for seo

content needed for searchAlthough using a flash player may look all nice and pretty to look it, they do absolutely nothing for you ranking on the web. This is because search engines like plain text and cannot read those of a flash player. Sometimes it even prevents your web site form being indexed at all. I tend never to use a flash player and neither do big SEO service consultants.

Menus with text
This is something that is similar to the previous point. Do not hide your navigational menu links in your images. This is very important to SEO consultants because once again the search engines cannot read graphics as well as they can read plain text. Your navigational menu is something that is vitally important because of the fact that you need to take the spiders into account. The spiders need to able to read the text so that they are able to determine the hierarchy of your web site but also because the keywords that the text has indicates to the search engine what is important on the next page.

“ALT” and “TITLE” and keyword tags
As I have mentioned before, search engine spiders are unable to read graphics. This means that when you are adding images to your web site, be sure to add titles and tag them. SEO specialists have found this method to work very well in the past because it adds extra information for the search engines. This is always a good thing. This means that you need to take the default setting off and rename those images.

When you are doing this, be sure to add keywords into the title tags. This helps greatly with both indexing and getting a higher page ranking. Let me give you an example while still staying with the car theme. If you have a photo of a Ford Mustang and the file name is something like “f5866h.jpeg” then I suggest that you change it to look something like “Ford Mustang.jpeg” But you still need to keep to your keywords.

SEO writing especially for bloggers Part 2

I have written this page to help you understand this fundamentals to enhancing your presence online using SEO company strategies.

Write great content

Any content can be rattled out in a matter of 15min. But the great content takes time and effort to do. This helps at the end of the day because people want to read fresh, unique, up to date content that keeps them intrigued. Remember to write for the individual and not just for the search engines. Yes putting keywords in and manipulating your site to accomplish the end result is the objective of the game but you need to be able to do so while still keeping your said audience captivated and hanging onto your every word.

Great content can help you in the long run in a number of ways. Not only does it give you a fresh well written page but it open other doors for people to like you content and in turn want to link to you. This is god because once again if they link to you and you link to them, then that is another link to be added to your site map which in turn gets noticed by the spiders and this helps you getting indexing and this obviously raises your page ranking which leads to more traffic which increases your productivity.

Guest blogging

I recommend that you do this at least five times a month if that is at all possible. All the professional SEO Company experts say that when you are guest blogging and you have them linked back to you, it is five times more valuable to you than if you are posting you own blog. Then having said this, becoming a guest blogger is not that easy. You need to build up a relationship with these bloggers and have them trust you. But a well invested blogging relationship can pay off at the end of the day. This is especially helpful if the blog that you are guest blogging for is a well-respected blogger with lots of incoming traffic. Remember that incoming links are essential.

Social media

In this day and age, social media has become a must do. I cannot remember the last time that I might someone that was not on twitter, Facebook or any other social media sites. One of the main reasons that social media is so important for SEO Company’s is that tweets and retweets are invaluable. I am only using twitter as an example right now but it works with any social media site. Let’s say you tweet something (this is seen by the search engines) and someone else rewets something and so on and so on. Every time that you retweet it tells the search engines that this is a very highly talked about subject and gains a lot of weight with the search engines. This is a very big technique that the bigger SEO Company’s use.

Some quick tips that sometimes forgotten when doing SEO services

online_marketingThere are a few quick and fast tips when improving your services that are sometimes very easily overlooked or even forgotten. Sometimes even the smallest detail might seem like something insignificant but can sometimes be very important.
Some people waste their time with file extensions. Your file extension doesn’t matter because our can use anything form html, php or htm etc. But focusing on this makes absolutely no difference to your E-Marketing services. When you have a new website that you have created and you want the most traffic to your site as fast as possible, then having it spidered is the fastest way. Submitting it through Google’s usual process can take a very long time and is sometimes ineffective. The fastest and most effective way to getting your web site “spiddered” is to link it through another higher quality site. By doing this your detection to the “spiders” is a lot easier and faster.

Now spiders can be very tricky sometimes but as to anything there is a way around them. Or more appropriately straight through them. If your site does not get altered very often and the content stays the same, then I would advise that you create a blog. Spiders like new fresh content all the time. The way to do this is you can add new content to your blog and the spiders are fed and happy. I would advise that you blog at least three times a week to keep things fresh. It does not take that long and is by far the easiest way to keep your web site high on the Page Rankings.

When it comes to “link building” it is best that you think of quality and not so much as quantity. You can have a lot of links to your sites but if they are not to the point and the target market necessarily then you can lose the interest of your potential clients and therefore this leads to a loss In traffic. You can often make a bigger impact in the target market with one or two imposing links.

Always remember not to use too many keywords when you are creating your content. Search engines search for content that is put in “natural language.” If your keywords or keyword phrases are uncharacteristically high then it can damper your progress and eventually start working against you.

When creating links always remember to surround your link with descriptive text. Do not forget to use keyword anchors in your links. And your keywords should be descriptive and helpful to the topic at hand. Just remember not to overdo it.
