Optimising your website...
The Optimisation of a web site involves preparing the
site to be found on search engines such as Google, NineMSN and Looksmart.
For many, the idea of optimizing a website for top search engine
placement means entering some META tags, maybe titling the page
appropriately, and then you’re done. A long time ago, this
tactic worked. Unfortunately for those optimizing their websites, and
fortunately for those using search engines to find information, this is no
longer the case.
There are now some 80+ factors of your website that are taken into
consideration when determining the ranking of your website. Everything from
titles and META’s to content and ALT tags are weighed and analyzed when your
placement on the search engines is determined. In a recent article by Ross
Dunn, CEO of StepForth Search Engine Placement, he addressed the
fundamentals of optimizing your web pages. The article he wrote was entitled
“A Ten Minute Search Engine Optimization” and can be found on the StepForth
