Google Website and Web Page Indexing for Dummies

You may have heard how important it is to have your website optimized for search engines, especially Google, which is currently the most popular worldwide. The reason for this is so your website will be ranked high in the search engines and people will see your site first, click on it, and increase your traffic and ultimately your sales. You might think this all sounds like a wonderful idea and want to get your web site optimized for Google, but you may have no idea how to go about it. Don't worry, getting your web page ready for the Google search engine is not as difficult as you might have thought. Google has a system called PageRank? that ranks the different web pages according to different standards. When you learn the standards you will know how to best optimize your page to get a high ranking in Google.

Tip #1 Search Engine Spamming

If you want to get a long term, high ranking with Google it is important not to spam. The reason for this is Google will blacklist you from their index and not list your URL. Also, most other web search engines operate the same way. Learn what is considered as spamming so you can avoid doing this.

Tip #2 Links

The more links you have on the Web that point to your website means the higher ranking you will receive on Google. This is because Google gives preference to sites with more links on the Web, so make sure you work hard to increase the links to your website that exist on the Web.

Tip #3 Keywords

Keywords are another major consideration if you want to get a high ranking with Google. The reason for this is that Google searches for the keywords that are related to your website and then ranks your website for those keyword phrases. If you have a website that is optimized for many keywords related to your niche, you'll attract tons of free, targeted search engine traffic.

Tip #4 Do not Use Frames

Google does not support websites with frames very well, so if your website utilizes frames you run a risk that your site will not rank well with Google or even get indexed at all. Get rid of those frames if you want Google to list all of the pages on your website!

Tip #5 More Text

Google searches for text, not photos or images. Make sure that you keep your content keyword rich and accurate. Keep the graphics to a minimum as well because the more images you have, the less text you have, the fewer keywords Google will be able to search for, and the longer your web pages will take to load.

Tip #6 Links

Make sure all pages within your site have their own URL or otherwise Google will have problems picking up and ranking these pages.
