    How Can I Improve My Websites Search Engine Position?

    Bing have just released a very interesting article on their blog detailing the items that can help your search engines position and what can be detrimental. even though it is bing that has released this info it should also be applicable to Google and the other search engines as well.

    How Can I Improve My Websites Search Engines Position?

    How Can I Improve My Websites Search Engines Position?

    Items that can help improve your sites position;

    • Title tags
    • Meta Descriptions
    • Clean URL
    • Images and Alt descriptions (also called alt tags)
    • H1 tags
    • Rel=Canonical
    • Robots.txt
    • Sitemaps
    • Social sharing options
    • Unique content
    • Depth of content
    • Matching content type to visitor expectations (text, images, video, etc.)
    • Usability Page load times (to a certain point – faster is great, but not at the expense of usability andusefulness)
    • Crawlability (AKA discoverability, so can we actually get to all your content)
    • News – if you are actually a new site, submit for inclusion

    Items that you should avoid or that will have little effect;

    • Meta Keywords (fill them in if you like, keep it short and relevant, but not a big ranking factor)
    • Duplicate URLs
    • Overly long URLs (no set number, but you’ve all seen these)
    • Cloaking (comes down to your intent, but risky business for sure)
    • Link buying
    • Selling links
    • Link and like farms
    • Three way links
    • Content duplication content
    • Auto following in social media

    This is not a definitive list and not all items will apply to your site, also just having H1 tag on your page will not necessary improve your site unless the tag is used correctly.

    Check out the full article here.

    Can content be duplicated across Twitter and Facebook? 

    Can content be duplicated across social networks?

    Typically duplicating content is not a problem as most people will only actively use one network, but you should not only post duplicate content. Having said that the content on twitter should be an abbreviated version of the Facebook content as you are limited to 140 characters.

    With twitter you can/should repeat content as people normally view their twitter content on a constantly scrolling screen so they may not even see your post unless it is repeated.

    Facebook content should not be duplicated.

    If someone comments on your post on Facebook or twitter always try to reply, even if it’s just an acknowledgment.

    How to submit a website to the search engines. 

    Submitting your new website to the major search engines is the first thing you should do once your website has gone live. After all there is no point having a website if no one I going to be able to find it.

    You should only need to do this once and for a new website, after your site has aged and has acquired incoming links from other websites, the search engines should automatically find it and any updates.

    Google

    Yahoo

    Free registration required.

    DMOZ

    No registration is required but you will need to choose the best location in their directory for your site.

    DMOZ is not a search engine itself, but it is used by a lot of other search engines and directories to help place your site. Google also uses it to get accurate site descriptions for their listings.
