Site Promotion


My Page Is Built, Now What ?

Unless you are one that just does not care to have your page seen by anyone else but you and a few close friends. Then you are going to need to learn how to promote your web site. I have found this to be an on going job. There is always something to do to promote your web page. There are search engines to add the page to, keywords to add to your META code, emails to page owners with a similar subject matter for swapping links. Then there are banner link exchanges, newsgroups, chat rooms, and webrings. The more time you put into promoting your page, the better the chances your page will be seen.

The META Code For Your Web Page

The first thing you need to do is install the META Code into your document's Html code. This code will have keywords for the search engines to locate your page, also a description of your web page is included in this META code for the search engines to display once your page is found.

Installing The META Code

The meta code is placed between the <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags of your html document. Note: If you do not have <HEAD> tags in your html document's code, then please review: Draac.Com's HTML Course Below is a sample code, you should use keywords & a description that best fits your page. The keywords & description are placed after the content= tags.

<META name="KEYWORDS" content="keyword1 ,keyword2,keyword3,keyword4,keyword5">
<META name="description" content="Visit this site for the best on the internet!">

Tips For Keywords & Descriptions

  • Arrange the keywords in the META tags in order of importance.
  • Think of one or two main keywords for your site and make them appear 5-6 times each on your front page.
  • For those main keywords use <b>keyword</b> or a bigger font size, <h1>Keyword </h1> is especially effective.
  • It is also a good idea to add common misspellings of some of your keywords into your META tags. For example "promotion" could be spelled "promotoin" by someone who is typing fast.
  • Don't use the same word within the META tags too many times. Choose a cut-off point, usually between 3-6 repetitions. Keep the META tags to a maximum 1024 characters, otherwise the excess characters will simply be ignored. Generally keep the META Tags to 250 characters.
  • When you have several occurrences of the same words in the META tag use different capitalization such as: promotion, Promotion, and PROMOTION. The general rule of thumb, however, is to keep everything in lower case.
  • Use interesting descriptions in the META Description tag. Use words like "secret", "insider information" and "free". Don't just fill the description tag with keywords.
