SEO - How To Get Your Website Listed On Search Engines With SEO

Aug 8, 2008
Nowadays, people are looking to use the Internet to market their businesses and generate more leads and sales online. However, to market your website successfully on the Internet, you need to get it listed on search engines. How to do it? You can implement SEO to your website.

The first step of the SEO process is to get your website indexed by search engines. The fact is majority of the websites on the Internet are indexed by search engines not because their webmasters submit them to search engines. Rather, they are found by search engines.

To get noticed by search engines, you first need to know how search engines find new websites. Basically, there are two ways that new websites are found. Firstly, search engines like Google and Yahoo regularly search for new content on some websites. These websites are regularly updated with new content like blogging platforms Wordpress and Blogger. Search engines also love article directory like EzineArticles and social media sites such as Digg, Reddit and StumbleUpon.

The second way search engines find websites is through backlinks to your website. When search engines find a link that follows to your website, they will award your site with some link popularity. Link popularity is a very important factor that search engines use to determine the ranking of your site on their organic listings. Therefore, having high link popularity will definitely help your site achieves good organic ranking.

There are a few ways to get your website indexed by search engine quickly. First is to submit your website to social media sites like Digg and StumbleUpon. Because search engines can visit these sites a few times in a single day, you stand a higher chance to get your website noticed by Google and Yahoo. Another way is to create backlinks on related sites. By getting related sites to place a link and point back to your site, search engines can follow the link and discover your site faster.

To effectively get results from SEO, getting your website indexed by search engines is not enough. You need to have a search engine friendly website with clean coding and good architecture. You will also need to place important keywords or key phrases on important pages of your website. More importantly, providing useful and keyword optimized content on your site will definitely boost your organic rankings on search engines. Be careful not to stuff too many keywords into one page. Remember that you are writing for your web visitors, not search engines to read. If your content is keyword optimized but it does not make any sense to your prospects, you are defeating the purpose of SEO.
