Submit All of Your Pages and Watch Your Traffic Grow!
Everyone is looking for search engine “secrets” about how to get more qualified traffic to their web sites. What I’m going to share with you is no secret, however it is not practiced by very many search engine optimization companies or individuals. Many companies and individuals only submit their home page to search engines and directories. You can easily start growing your traffic in 90 – 120 days by implementing the following procedures.
The first and most important rule is to add new quality content to your website, it must be unique and it must be relevant to your site, if you nothing else you must do this…..WRITE!!
Then and only then Search Engine Optimize the new content in these basic ways:
1. Create a unique title for each page of your site that covers a different subject matter. I am astounded when I surf the web and I find large and small companies whose web sites don’t have a decent title for their home page, much less titles for any of their content pages. Your title should not be named “home”. If you own a web design program or if you have competent web designers, your title can be changed on every page in 10 – 30 minutes. Your title should be short and describe the content on that page. In case you were not aware, the title of each page always appears in the upper left hand corner of the browser used by the person visiting your web site.
2. Create meta tags for each page that has a different title. Most people use the same meta tags for each page of their web site. If you have different content on different pages, then you should have different meta tags for those internal pages too! Meta Tags are the hidden text that programmers use to enable the search engine “spiders” to find your site on the world wide web. At one time, there were numerous meta tags in use, but in recent years, only Title, Keywords, and Description are thought to have any importance.
3. Submit your pages to search engines and directories – Carefully > every month. Once you have the proper title and meta tags for the interior pages of your web site, register them once a month. If you want ANY of your pages indexed by search engines, you have to submit them once a month! You can do this manually or you can do it through various submit programs. The most affordable method I have found is the free search engine submit tool at BraveNet.com. BraveNet allows you to register with 18 search engines at no charge. If you do this once a month, you will start getting traffic to your newly submitted pages within 60 – 120 days.
In summary: Optimizing your title and your Meta Tags for each page can easily quadruple your traffic in just a few months. Submitting your internal pages of your web site to directories and search engines is an affordable and easy way to bring more qualified traffic to your web site.
