Search Engine Optimization (SEO) PDF Print E-mail
One of the most important things to do after getting you've signed up is to get it listed on search engines.
You can do this via Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
To get listed on a search engine you will need to submit the URL of your site and some personal details to the relevant search engine. Submission rules vary among different search engines so you will need to do some research.

Once your application is approved, the search engine will send a little program called a 'spider' or 'bot' to crawl and index your site pages. The 'bot' then sends back the relevant data it has obtained from your site to the search engine and algorithms in each search engine will decide how your site ranks when someone performs a search in that particular search engine.

Because bots are computer programs, they cannot 'see' the pages like a person. Instead, they can only see the source code that is used to render your webpage in web browsers. To help these robots understand your site and content better, Your site provides the following features to aid in their indexing work:
  • Site Map
  • Meta Tags
Getting on top of page rankings is a big deal for any online business because it increases the exposure of the business to customers and hence drives greater traffic to the site compared to sites that dont rank as high.
