SEO Tips for Beginners

Hey all. I decided to syndicate this ezine article for this post. I'm really busy today and thought you mind find this useful. I chose this article because it has some great beginner SEO tips.

SEO Tips for Beginners

There are many people who have absolutely no idea as to how to promote a website or about the basics of search engine optimisation. This is where this article could prove to be invaluable, I am going to be writing about the best ways to market a website and will be providing some essential SEO advice.

Each website will have a number of keywords that potential visitors will use to locate the site via the search engines. If you are a web designer, a couple of your keywords would be web design and web designer. You may want it to be more specific, if you were based in Birmingham one of your keywords could be web designer in Birmingham. I think you will understand the meaning of a keyword by now. It is very important that all of your keywords appear on your homepage. This helps the major search engines to locate your site for those keywords. You will be amazed how many webmasters do not include their keywords on their homepage, a basic but very important mistake.

When promoting your website you should first make yourself familiar with the guidelines of each of the major search engines, especially Google. These guidelines are updated on a regular basis therefore you should also read them on a regular basis.

Backward links are all the rage, some SEO experts say that the more links you can obtain, the higher your site will rank on the major search engines.

I think for a novice or beginner the best and easiest way to obtain backward links is via article marketing. Writing articles and submitting them to sites such as ezinearticles and goarticles has proven to be a very popular and beneficial form of web promotion for many years, it is also likely to stay this way for many years to come. It is also free so what could be better? I have had some outstanding results from article marketing and am sure that you will to. Good luck with promoting your website.

5 Beginners tips for website optimization (SEO)

  1. Use a keyword tool to find out what is being searched most on the internet. Wordtracker is a really good service and pays off for itself.
  2. optimize each web page for certain keywords. Use keyword density tools for this.
  3. Put the keyword that you’re optimizing for that particular web page into the title tags of the page. About 50 to 60 characters will do.
  4. Put these keywords into the <Meta/> tags of your website (however, it is generally accepted that <Meta> tags aren’t indexed by search engine spiders (search engine bots) anymore, but it can’t hurt. Put about 250 characters in these tags
  5. Put keywords into the attributes of your website. Don’t spam the webpage with them, but in a large graphic, you can do more repeating of the same keyword. attributes are used to show the text of an image. Some internet users choose to disable images from loading for faster load times. Try putting your mouse pointer onto an image an you’ll see what I mean.

These are some basic tips, and there are more to come. It’ll take a lot of discussion and thought to reach our goal of transcendence in the e-marketing category, but this will do for now. Keep reading for more on search engine optimization, and please don’t forget to subscribe to this blog via email or rss feed (the little orange box up by the Uniform Resource Locater (Mozilla) or the upper right corner if you’re using Microsoft internet explorer. ( for those of you who aren’t familiar with RSS Feeds, I’ll be covering that topic too!)

Marketingographer experiential blast off!

Hey! I'm Joe as you can see in my profile probably by now! I work for Solegy in NYC in the marketing department. The purpose of the marketingographer blog is to map out a new way of thinking in the marketing world with our own cartographer minds, and our own compasses. I and anyone who contributes to this blog will seek to break through the clutter, to map the new territory that is shaping the marketing world. I aim to inspire and motivate you into realizing that marketing is all around us. Don't be boring and normal. You only get to live once, Carpe diem! (I don't know if I spelled that right who cares!) I want you to see that in marketing we are going to transcend the every day, cut through the rubble, and inspire our way to our ultimate goal, which is harmony.

"Marketing isn't just selling, it's fulfilling people's needs in the most ingenious way, and in today's world these needs aren't base, consumers are looking for products and services that add value to their life, and that create a unique identity for themselves. This is the marketing concept."
