How do I apply search engine optimization to my websites?

Posted on 26 October 2010 by SEOman from Seattle

I have two websites, www.howland.ws and www.dennishowland.ws. How can I get them to show up on a Google web search? When I google these, no links are returned. I am new to internet marketing, so please excuse my ignorance.

    The best book I’ve read on the subject is “SEO, An Hour a Day”. They also have a website: http://www.yourseoplan.com/

    Tons of great information

    The million dollar question, with many many answers. Here’s my strategy.
    a) make sure your html is well formed. I.e. proper web syntax. I just ran it through the validator
    http://validator.w3.org/ and http://www.howland.ws has 76 errors. It’s recommended to fix those, though admittedly a pain.
    b) post links back to your site. Such as placing a question on yahoo answers which will then become a link. Try it sometime! ;)
    c) Promote on social media sites like digg, reddit, stumbleupon, facebook, twitter.
    d) Don’t quit, keep doing the above. My opinion is that b) placing links to your website it the most important. There are services that do this too, such as http://watermyblog.com/, or many many others.

    I suggest you let a good SEO company do it for you. They have all the resources to get you ranking in Google and other major search engines quickly. I use a company called Flagship Marketing http://www.flagshipseo.com They are great! I used them to implement a link building campaign that got my site from a PR 0 to PR 2 really quickly and it will keep going up I’m sure. My site show’s up all over Google for a ton of different search terms. I highly suggest them.

    If your site doesn’t appear in google that means that google hasn’t been able to find the site yet. The way google finds new sites is when existing sites link to them. What you need to do is to get an existing site to link to you as this will hopefully send you some traffic as well.

    The way I usually get my sites first indexed (that’s what it’s called when it appears in google and yahoo) is to use a process called article marketing. It’s fairly easy and the basics of the system can be found at http://www.squidoo.com/article-marketing-making-your-articles-better if you follow that advice your pages will appear in no time.

    or you can submit images to Google image to index you fast, or validate your site with Google webmaster. If you want to have long term more quality index, of course there are many marketing effort you need to do and depends if you focus on organic free traffic or referral traffic. So much thing to tell and perhaps you can take out some course or read more info from the basic. It is too much to talk here. Warrior forum and Digitalpoint forum are two good forum to have some understanding.

    Yeah, forget, if you submit video to youtube and other major video sites like metacafe, it also index your site very fast.

    I’d suggest you download the ebook about internet traffic here:http://tinyurl.com/237cvqj .
    It’s a simple and straight-forward ebook with step-by-step instructions that can produce a lot of traffic, leads and income for you if you’re willing to put in the small amount of time and effort to do it.

    The truth of the matter is that the ebook is proven to be effective when it comes to ranking websites. So if your trying to build an online income without a powerful Marketing System you will always be climbing a slippery slope.
