Do you need top search engine results?
Do you want first page Google?
Getting traffic to your website involves several marketing methods, of which
search engine traffic is foremost. It is not really difficult to get top SERP (search engine results pages) or even to achieve first page Google. You can avoid the high cost of SEO (search engine optimization) companies, and the risky bidding for prominent Adwords. All you need is written up here in this article.
My Quick SEO for SERP formula:
Use a 3-4 keyword phrase.
Use keyword phrases that search users would probably use. This is where an SEO expert may come in handy, but with a little imagination and research you should be able to master this.
Place your "keyphrases" in your title <title>, header <h1> to <h6>, and link <a href> tags.
Place in meta name description <meta name="Description" content="place in here - easy on all caps" />.
Use this keyphrase 2-3 times minimum in body content.
If your website is geographic specific, (even if it's not) be sure to include your city and state in your title and meta name description tags.
And there you have it! Use this formula, and you'll see your website on Google first page within a week or two.
See my 1st page Google pages (Feb 2008):
optimized website design: number 9
optimized website design tacoma: number 1 & 2
discount website design: number 9

With all of the (so called) experts advising us on search engine optimization, it's difficult to sort fact from fiction, greed from truth.
And then, to understand it all, you need a master's degree in marketing. Prior to this publication, to get any worthy information, you would need to chance-purchase a variety of literature (likely from a mini site), sort through it all to find what might work, Google a few hieroglyphics phrases, and experiment with all the suggestions.
Dan Thies has been in the Search (and marketing) industry for over 6 years; he has earned a solid reputation for accurate information. He speaks at SES conferences, teaches SEO, mods for High Rankings, is a member of the SEOPros executive committee, and can write so that the layman can grasp a full understanding. Dan has also written the "Search Engine Marketing Kit" for SitePoint.
Anything this guy puts his name on is not just goodâ€¦ it's great!
What Iâ€™ve created here is more than just a book â€“ itâ€™s a framework for learning SEO. In fact, itâ€™s a framework for understanding SEO, for managing SEO projects, for developing better methods, for teaching, for communicating with clients, and more. One important goal is to teach beginners a simple process that consistently delivers results. But this book isnâ€™t just for beginners.
Even the most jaded veterans of the SEO wars can use this framework. If you donâ€™t like what weâ€™re doing at any particular step in the â€œfast startâ€ process, just plug in your own process for that step.
The people who are exceptionally good at SEO also have a lot of knowledge about the technical side of search engines and web sites. I think Iâ€™ve proven over the years that I am one of those peopleâ€¦ and I want to help you.
... when I start work on a new web site, I expect that weâ€™ll be able to start seeing significant traffic from search engines within the first month or so, and that weâ€™ll start seeing page one rankings for our key search terms within six months.
So go now, go get this FREE e-book and thank me later!

Website promotion is necessary when establishing your e-business and learning how to make easy money online. Creating a website by itself isn't sufficient to carry a budding internet business. You have got to assume the ideal link building strategy to market your site in a search engine friendly fashion. Search engines believe link popularity to be a significant element in placing websites among the search engine result pages (SERPs.)
A site that has quality links is in all likelihood going to place among the first ten results of the SERPs. The determinging factors for link popularity for each engine differs from the others. You are able to determine the link popularity by typing â€œLink:yourdomain.comâ€ into any of the search engine. The complete details of the sites linking to your website will be before you.
If you ever want to learn how to make fast money online you've got to be able to come up with an effective link building technique to enhance the link popularity of your website. You will have to integrate three types of links to attain this-- internal, external and reciprocal links.
The easiest imaginable approach to having an effective linking design for your site is to create a sitemap. A sitemap is the structure of the whole website that holds links to all of the pages on a website. The links are organized in accordance with the particular details of a subject. They are usually shown in a hierarchical way. The links must be anchor text containing the keywords associated with your site. This makes the search engine's job quite easy.
Quality internal links are required both from an SEO standpoint, and also as a resource for your visitors. A website is gauged based on whether or not it accurately and efficiently deeplinks all of its pages of information, and a sitemap assists visitors because it formats all the information on the site in a logical, easy-to-use structure.
Link building methods also stress the necessity of outbound links. These make your website user-friendly, and also say something to your credibility. An authority website knows that it is an authority, and for that reason is not preoccupied with irrelevant worries like "passing too much page rank." It also realizes that it cannot possibly give to its visitors all relevant information on a single website, and so it points them freely to other resources that can be of use. Be aware of the sites you link to, however, because linking to a ton of cheap, useless, low-credibility websites will reflect badly on your own site.
Of course, inbound links are the most relevant for any link building technique. If you want to achieve high rankings, you simply have to spend most of your energy getting one-way backlinks from other websites, pointing towards your own. This is most effectively done by writing good, informative content. Just about everyone in internet marketing agrees that the content of a website is the foremost factor in natural link building. This goes back to

Introducing The Hottest Whitehat Traffic Getting System
... and I can almost hear you saying, "What - stop building backlinks??"
Well, not to actually cease and desist, but there's something EASIER and BETTER now [add post Penguin]: content curation.
DOWNLOAD YOUR FREE PDF REPORT: http://webdesignbysteve.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/GettingStartedWithCuration.pdf
Content curation can be a powerful tool for gaining search engine ranking, as it can be used to vastly increase a company’s online presence and influence. One thing Google recognizes is the authority websites in the market that report on topics in specific niches. News sites do not always create their own news, they find other news and report on it... and reference the source.
Technically they are copying other people’s content and publishing it on their site - and Google is rewarding them for it - as long as they put a reference back to the source. Taking a step further, you can add your own editorial comment as an introduction to this content - and even summarize it. As long as you reference the source - then in Google’s eyes this is 100% approved. Add your own voice or tone - and then this becomes curation.
1) Search for fresh and exciting articles from Google blog search, news search, or Twittery
2) Curate interesting content
3) Integrate stunning images from Flickr or videos from YouTube
4) Post to your site
5) Reference to source
6) Add your comments and opinion
When you have found a good new source of content you can either use it immediately, or save it in your own collection.
Real content curation site is NOT about scraping RSS, or stealing other people’s articles. It’s about providing quality information to your niche audience. It’s a place where they will come to first for a roundup of the most relevant information in your area of expertise.
Whitehat and Google approved - this is the way forward for creating authority sites that make money.

There are 300 million searches carried out every single day.
85% of qualified Internet traffic is generated through search engines.
75% of searchers never look further than the first page.
In the USA, Google accounts for 64% of all searches, Yahoo is next in line with 22%, followed by MNS at 9% and Ask.com with 3% of all search requests. The remaining search engines account for 5%. Source: Hitwise, March 2007.

A great website with great SEO/SEM is a powerful combination.
Most web design companies do not optimize for search engines.
Most SEO companies do not design websites.
Most web designers do not offer SEO copyrighting.
SEO is not and will never be an exact science.

Not able to find these required gears, we now are turning to having them made.
PDF file: Internal_Gear_CAD_Specs
So we need a CAD gear draftsperson. Here are the specifications of the gears:
The resulting revolution of this transmission will be a 2:1 ratio increase in a reverse direction
We are making a prototype, and plan on using nylon or equivalent plastic, 7/16 to 1/2 inch thick.
Brass bushings will be inserted in gears where they come in contact with axle rotation, on the planetary gears
We will also need a drawing using steel gears (type of steel TBD), with ball bearings on the planetary gears, with an enclosure (later)
Later still, we will be using magnetic bearings
Sun gear will be fitted for a 3/4" axle, with a 3/16" keyway and set screw
Eight helical thread inserts will be installed in the outer gear that will accept 1/4" fine threaded bolts
Axels for planetary gears will be determined by drafts person, or use 3/4" metal
Gear teeth pitch and size will be determined by drafts person, but should have at least 2 teeth in contact

Things have changed – as we’re all so painfully aware. These days the search engine algorithms are more complex and a lot “smarter” than they used to be. The big search engines are wise to all the SEO tricks of a few years ago, so you have to take a different approach these days. In fact, if you try to resort to those old school methods and game the system, you can pretty much count on your website never making it to the top spots. You have to take a new approach, and that’s exactly what we will be doing to create Penguin proof backlinks for your website.
I think it’s important for you to have a solid grip on the different types of backlinks that you’ll be using for your sites, so let’s take a breather for a minute and talk about the diverse links that I used for this case study.
To achieve page 1 rankings now that Google has released the Penguin, you must have a really solid and diverse backlinking profile. When You have powerful backlinks coming from different diverse sources, along with strong social signals pointing to your website, we will be able to easily hit the top positions.
Post Penguin update, anchor text linking strategies have also changed. It is now recommended when linking other sites directly to your main site, to add extra keywords to the anchor text as well as social qualifiers such as “click here”, “check them out”, and additionally using the domain itself (yourdomain.com) as a keyword.
You want plenty of backlinks for your site, but you want them to come from a variety of trusted, established sites on the Internet. With so many Web 2.0 websites offering webmasters the ability to obtain these links at no monetary cost, it’s finally possible to build a diverse, well rounded backlink profile for your website.
And so said, gone is the day that a simple link from a blog comment, a forum signature, or within an article that points DIRECTLY to your website, will establish ranking priority with Google. Post Penguin update, now your priority needs to be the anchored links that come from Google's prioritized website types - the social websites and the web 2.0 websites.
