7 steps to put your website on the fast track to success
To be successful quickly, you must:
Design with the user in mind. Never use large images. 10-12KB per image guarantees your pages won’t be slow. Use graphics that enrich the content. Avoid images that change color or flash.Use standard and intuitive layouts, the page should breathe and the font size should be comfortable. Use multiple fonts: serif for titles and sans serif for text. Limit the number of ads, banners and links on your website. Make sure you test your website on multiple browsers.
Select display directory.Read all submission requirements and guidelines more than once. Choose your category carefully and with planning (browse the catalog, browse competitor lists and related websites). View your website from an editor’s perspective. Make sure the title and summary are appropriate and relevant to your website content. Be realistic about your website’s strengths. Remember to add value to your website.
Increase traffic by adding your website to online directories.Choose the option to submit main and secondary pages. Also some relevant niche sites will increase your popularity and traffic.
Connect your website with others. Search engines give higher rankings to websites that link to other websites. Link your site to primary and secondary sites. Visit high-traffic websites and ask for a mention or link. This increases your search engine ranking and drives traffic away from linked pages.
Optimize your website’s PageRank by carefully selecting incoming external links. The links lead to relevant websites and are not random. The criterion to consider is quality, not PageRank. List your website in an open directory and Yahoo as this will artificially increase your PageRank. Never include external links on pages that lead to other websites.External links should be offered on low PageRank pages that contain many links to your site’s pages. Build your navigation structure so that important pages link to many other internal pages that do not require high ranking. These additional links increase the ranking of your main pages.
Create a sitemap and assign each page to it. They invite bots sent by search engines, which then index every page on your website. Uses a user-friendly navigation structure. Check regularly for errors. Integrate a search tool on your website. Be search engine friendly and avoid frames, flash, and code that could trigger one or more crawlers.
