The Rules of SEO

Post by philb » Wed Oct 31, 2007 11:48 am

Useful tips to ensure your submissons rank well.
  • Make sure your site validates with W3C it helps.
    Use the <h> tags for titled information
    Put in a xml site map
    Use a blog such as wordpress you can feed from that.
    use the meta tags "description" and "keywords"
Simple things like this will bump you up the ladder a little further and cost nothing at all!

Hi sssoek

The <h> tag can be placed anywhere within your <body> tag of your html. Bascially the lower the number the more importance the bots indexing your site will put on it. So for example a main title on a page should always be a <h1> tag where as a sub heading could be something like a <h3> or <h4> tag. These tags are pretty important to the bots trawling the net for indexing for the SEs as they will read such tags well before picking up the <p> tag.

Here is an example copy and paste into your html editor

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>sssoek </title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=us-ascii" />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-gb" />
</head>

<body>
<h1>Hello Main Title</h1>
<h2>Tilte 1</h2>
<h3>tiltle 2</h3>
<h4>tiltle 5</h4>
</body>

</html>

Use a single Title for each page

Also use single <h1> tag for only one Web Page.
