Getting listed on Search Engines

Search Engine Optimization 8 comments

Since writing the Finding Readers series of blog tips I’ve had a number of people ask for more information on getting listed on Search Engines - particularly Google.

Patrick Taylor has written a great post on Boosting your Google Ranking. He incorporates most of the tips I’ve seen written elsewhere in a way that even I (mostly) understand.

His main points include:

- Archive Individual Posts
- Incorporate post title into individual post title tags - I have this and it seems to work very well.
- Link a lot - and try to attract links
- Wrap Hypertext around words - ie don’t have links like click here but instead use descriptive terminology that people are likely to do a search on. Eg the best digital photography link on the web.
- Make your blog slim/trim and fast - he provides great resources for this.

Anyway - there is heaps to think about in his article - check it out.

    Since writing the Finding Readers series of blog tips I’ve had a number of people ask for more information on getting listed on Search Engines - particularly Google…. This post has been moved to Pro Blogger - Getting Listed…

  • I just started blogging and have had essentially no traffic and of course have made no money. I found your articles useful and will try some tips. Since I don’t know a thing about blogging, I am scrambling to find info to help. I currently use adsense, but the whole thing about getting indexed is still confusing to me. I have two other blogs that are probably not as interesting as the first mentioned, but they were relevant to popular key words I found. My other sites are www.survivingyourspouse.blogspot.com and www.myrunningcircleslog.blogspot.com. I’m not in it to make the big bucks, but it would be fun to make a little extra. Anyway, just wanted to let you know I like your blog!

  • I started to use adsense about ten months ago, since then I visited your blog almost everyday to gain tips from your site.
    I have been able to make more money to just read tips from enternetusers.
    Then I decided to make blog to adsense newbie in Indonesia, to help them with adsense.
    And this seo article is very helpfull to bring more visitors

    Thank You Darren

  • Thank you for this informative post! I am really in a search to boost my traffic in order to add a few more people to chat with. I don’t have a blog that is full of information, as I made a site for the sole purpose of letting my visitors play games and that’s all. But I do find that even if some don’t apply to me, most of your tips and “secrets” are very helpful in not only raising pagerank and other greedy wishes that most webmasters have, but also, I’ve enjoyed how your blog helps webmasters interact. I’ve been refered to your blog each time I asked my webmaster friends how to improve in designing and writing content for my site. There are many links on your site which I’ve found very helpful. However, I don’t prefer “Arial Narrow” as a font on a webpage as it looks somewhat choppy and is a tiny bit hard to read… just a personal comment that I would like to add. Thanks for your informative content! Compared to other ones which are built to make money, this SEO optimization blog is rated highest by a longshot.
