DIY SEO Part 3, Advertising

We have dealt with the tags so the search engines should be happy when they find you, now you have to shove your site in a few places that get indexed on a daily basis.

This ensures that your website will get indexed by google, yahoo and alike as quickly as possible. These next 4 steps are free and necessary for the continued growth of your internet business.

The first site we want to visit is http://craigslist.org When you get to the site you will want to find the small biz ads section and find the relevant area for you. If you don't live in the USA or England then please use the area closest to you.

Please respect this site and do not spam it, he provides a valuable service and you will be banned if you misuse it.

Add your website, make sure you make use of the title tags as described in DIY seo prt 2 (just google the title if you haven't read it) and you will get a valuable link from a high PR site for a week or so. Because Craig's gets indexed on a daily basis your site will be included by the bots.

The next visit you will want to make is to blogger.com, if you already have a blog you can skip this section. Blogs as we all know by now are a favourite of the search engines and blogger is another high PR site that gets regularly visited. Open an account, get a snazzy title and get blogging. If you can make at least one post a day for a month then you will get the googlebot visiting you on a daily basis. Put a link back to your site from your blog page that the bot can follow, make sure your content is relevant to your website and include those valuable keywords you worked so hard on.

Make sure in your blogger dashboard that you have the "notify weblogs.com" box ticked, we need all the exposure we can get.

In the site feed tab you have the option to publish the site feed, make sure this is ticked and make a note of the feed URL, you will need this for the next step.

The next step for now is for you to get along to feedburner.com and open an account. Add your URL from blogger and get hold of your feed link in the publicise section. You can also grab a little orange button so your visitors can syndicate your site.

Finally, go to pingomatic.com and open an account. After EVERY post you make in your blog, skip over to pingomatic's site and get pinging.

By completing these 4 steps you should find a significant increase in traffic to your website and you will get googled, yahoo'ed and msn'ed on a regular basis, this is good.
