Search Engine Optimization

seo-babySearch Engine Optimization or SEO is a term widely used today by many sites. For the past few years and the next ten years or so, search engines would be the most widely used internet tool to find the sites that they need to go to or the product or information they need.

Search Engine Friendly Pages

There is no point in building a website unless there are visitors coming in. A major source of traffic for most sites on the Internet is search engines like Google, Yahoo!, MSN, Altavista and so on. Hence, by designing a search engine friendly site, you will be able to rank easily in search engines and obtain more visitors.

seo-friendlyMajor search engines
use programs called crawlers or robots to index websites to list on their search result pages. They follow links to a page, reads the content of the page and record it in their own database, pulling up the listing as people search for it.

If you want to make your site indexed easily, you should avoid using frames on your website. Frames will only confuse search engine robots and they might even abandon your site because of that. Moreover, frames make it difficult for users to bookmark a specific page on your site without using long, complicated scripts.

Do not present important information in Flash movies. Search engine robots can only read text on your source code so if you present important words in Flash movies and images rather than textual form, your search engine ranking will be affected dramatically.

Use meta tags accordingly on each and every page of your site so that search engine robots know at first glance what that particular page is about and whether or not to index it. By using meta tags, you are making the search engine robot’s job easier so they will crawl and index your site more frequently.

Stop using wrong HTML tags like <font> to style your page. Use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) instead because they are more effective and efficient. By using CSS, you can eliminate redundant HTML tags and make your pages much lighter and faster to load.

All in One SEO Pack: A Review

On my last project, I use All in One SEO Pack (AOSP) plugin (it is no longer maintained) to ease my client on changing their meta tag instead of editing the template directly. I ever used this plugin before but never take a look deeply in meta tag generated.

When I realize that my client’s website are not indexed by Google for almost two weeks, I started to find what caused the problem, because the web stat said that Google robots visited the web. In the end I realize that the problem is caused by the default page for my web hosting. I look at the HTML code and notice that sometime AOSP create meta tag description without any value in it. :O

Even if it created a description, it was not reflecting the content because it only took for some words from the first paragraph. Therefore I am planning to do a hard coded meta tag in the template tag, while looking for another alternative for SEO plugin for WordPress.
