  3. 3
    Choose keywords that will help your site besides the obvious keywords that pertain to your website.
    It is important to think of words that others will not think of when searching your site on purpose such as sleeper words that are used but not high competition among other sites. The best ways to do this will also be to input keywords that are not completely relevant to the site in particular so that you can gain a wider audience.

  4. 4
    Keep your mind on the user rather than trying to come up with keywords to gain the attention of the search engines.
    Some websites use more keywords for search engines instead of focusing on the visitors which will harm the site in being searched. Whatever words used in the content should be original and not based on solely getting the attention of the search engines. If you do chose to use keywords to gain search engine attention then it is important that you place the words into the content on the site as natural as possible.

  5. 5
    Ensure that all the pages on your website have unique titles and content on them in order to bring your content out uniquely over other websites that produce the same content as your site.
    If you place the same titles and content on every page then the search engine will not recognize your site for all of the content except one being that all the pages are alike and similar. The idea is to get the search engines to recognize every page of your site as individual to gain more views and rankings rather than having the search engines recognize your site as on big page. The two most important titles or tags in your website will be the "title tag" and the "Meta tags". The title tag will be the first thing that search engines recognize on your site so it is important to have different titles on each of your individual pages to gain the max number of searches to your page through search engines. The second important tag will be the META tag or basically your description on the page which is not as important as the title tags but also play a part in being searched. The reason behind the descriptions not being as important is because not all search engines actually bring up the descriptions anymore when someone is searching on the search engines but this does not mean that you still shouldn't have unique descriptions on your pages for some search engines actually do present your descriptions when certain things are being searched through their engines. Yahoo, Google and MSN are the sites who do not necessarily present the descriptions of the sites but other engines such as Bing, Ask and other low ranking search engines display the descriptions as well as the titles on their search engines.

    Make sure that all your tags and links are displayed well on your site for any errors in these will surely not get your site the maximum number of searches for your content.
    Any missing tags will hide or not spotlight any content that you have on that page making it non searchable and can harm the site in many ways by not showing the full potential of your site to search engines. Along with your tags understand that the site map or navigation will play a big part in the search engines being about to travel your site for the maximum view of all your content, it has been tested that flash and JavaScript means of producing a map will not aid search engines in being able to navigate around your site so it is best to stick with HTML codes rather than any other type of coding in order to display your site map or navigation of your sites content and pages.

    Make your site map easy to use by not only search engines but also people who will visit the site for if the site is not usable by people then it will push away heavy amounts of traffic.
    In your site map put the options out there plainly as to not confuse people when they visit your site, the more plain instructions the better for people to grasp and understand and once they get the full understanding of how to navigate around the site it will help them to maneuver easier and easier each time they visit the site boosting possible their want to stay on the site to view all of its content.

    Advertising is the next thing that you will need to do for your site, even though there are a lot of advertising companies you can pay to promote your content the best non expensive way to perform this is through the use of social networking.
    Create a logo for your site or business and display it as much as possible on your pages of social networking, once you have built up enough views on your social network for your site you can then create a site only profile for a social networking site. After you have created your sites network profile page add people to your friends list or at least followers it will not matter who at this point just how many for any type of exposure can bring potential traffic and thus increasing your rankings with your search engines.

When starting these offers ensure to have them cover a couple of days or even weeks to constantly have the people visit daily to win a prize. In this day in age it doesn't matter what the prize is as long as it is something that people will want being school supplies, tickets, coupons and etc. Radio stations even use these offers to gain listeners and promote so it will work for websites as well.
