Search Engine Optimisation
Posted 10 January 2008 - 11:21 AM
Have anyone actually gotten an SEO expert to get their site optimised so that it gets ranked well on search engines like Google?
From my limited readings some of the things one can do to help your site do better in these rankings is but not limited to:
- Have your URL shown clearly ;
- in articles that you write and submit to article directories
- in slides that you make and submit to slide directories
- in Blogs that you comment on
- in other similar websites either as links or perhaps in their guest books
- Use SEO software like webposition to help make your site more search engine friendly, and optimise the amount of keywords that are used in your tags and content.
The above are just some ways of improving your SE rankings. If you have any tips, please feel free to share them!

Perhaps the "Webmasters" part of the forum should be enhanced a bit and have a section on SEO added under it. I will give it some thought.
Also, it would be interested to know if there are other, new members here who are into SEO and marketing online --aside from just using PTC/PTR sites to promote.

Sure. What timezone are you in?
I'm absolutely booked (way behind, actually) on a couple of projects this weekend and this week, but I can give you a call next weekend sometime --if that works for you. Just PM me your number and we'll talk. :)

Do let me know if I can partake in any thing that can be mutually beneficial.

I was thinking of getting a group together for a social networking project, but the primary demographics of this board probably wouldn't be interested. Since I see there is a growing niche of more webmaster-focused people here, this might be something to consider.
In the meantime, be checking out StumbleUpon (http://www.stumbleupon.com) and start building your account. StumbleUpon was founded in 2001, and I was one of their first advertisers back in the day (circa late 2002), but they just didn't have the traffic and I didn't see the point. Now, it appears I missed the boat on that one. I remember Justin LaFrance used to work with me on getting my campaigns going, and now he's probably so rich that he wouldn't bother with an email. I know that the founders sold StumbleUpon in May of 2007 to Ebay for $75,000,000 USD. So, that explains why there is no longer any communication with members, emails go unanswered, and bugs I reported remain unfixed. It's too bad.
Anyway, I digress. StumbleUpon (and some of the other social networking sites) are great ways to generate real traffic -if done right.
We should collaborate more on this and other topics. I am leaning more and more to carving out a dedicated section on the forum for this. There is a webmaster area now, but please make any suggestions on how to turn that into something more useful for those in our niche of webmaster, design, and marketing.

This area is still a niche, despite growing number of such sites, I believe its a matter of how it is modelled and marketed.
Count me in. I am working on a simple site now, and will let you know more about it when its ready.

I am moving this thread under the "Search Engine Optimization" sub-topic for relevance and organization, now that it exists.

I do this myself.
I got pretty experienced in this in time and i am sure i can do better. For now i do the search engine optimization myself because if i pay someone to do it for me - i would be broke! :)
It's very expensive and if someone else can do it - so can I :D
It's not that hard, really.. it does take up a lot of time, but it's worth it.. i still have time to kill :D

1. titles and description meta tags (even keywords, even if some say they are useless now) separate for each page.
2. the layout is div only, as "clean" as possible
3. images named with the keywords
4. alt tags and title tags (images and links) with the descriptions and keywords I want to rank.

I agree. Every little bit counts

Aside from content, you also have a link to relevant sites. Let’s say that your topics are about celebrities, you must find a site that has the same topic as celebrities.
