1. Submit Your RSS Feed to RSS Directories.

This will not only increase the number of sites linking to your website and increasing your link popularity, it will also increase the RSS feeds profile. A number of RSS search engines and RSS directories exist that allow you to freely submit RSS feeds. Feeds are generally categorized and grouped together by subject..

How To Protect Your Site From A Google PageRank Drop

For the uninitiated, Google ranks all pages on the web with a scale of PR0 to PR10 - higher is better. High PR sites or pages receive most of the traffic for competitive keywords or phrases. Keywords are what surfers type into search engines to find what they're looking for on the web.

Importance of Using ALT Text and Heading Tags

If you have a website that you want ranked with higher rankings, there are several things you can do on your own to increase rankings. One thing you can do is double check the usage of alt text and heading tags on your sight. I've noticed by not having heading tags and leaving the alt text blank, search engines like Google will rank you with a lower score. This has happened to some of my pages, so I am speaking from experience. Recently I did a revamp on some of the pages on my site and noticed that my page ranking had dropped. I couldn't figure it out until finally I caught a clue, and compared my old pages with the new ones...

Formatting the Title Tag

Back to the basics for a minute - let's talk about how to create the ideal title tag. There are several best practices that, in my opinion, make a big difference for the major effects you're shooting for in title tag optimization (CTR in the SERPs, rankings at the search engines and value to users as navigational data). In the simplest situation, you've got 3 pieces of data to convey: Company or Website name (for branding and ID purposes), location in site architecture (if on a non-landing specific page), Keyword term or phrase targeted for search traffic...

SEO Tips and Tricks

Many people incorrectly believe that good meta tags are all that is needed to achieve good listings in the search engines, which is entirely incorrect. While meta tags are usually always part of a well optimized page they are not the be all and end all of optimizing your pages.

The result is that the engines have changed what they look at when they rank a web page...
