Search Engine Optimization

Search Engine Optimization

Web design is one of those things that is necessary if you want your website to be a success. Anyone can put up a website, but it takes a certain finesse to have one that is a success. If you are new to the world of web design, the process can be rather confusing. The following article will help clear things up for you.

Color Palette

SEO (search engine optimization) is absolutely necessary. This is when a web designer creates a site in a way that will appeal to search engine spiders. This is a very tricky area, because you have to appeal to the average customer at the exact same time. Good SEO techniques can bring your website to the top of search engine results. This is where you need to be if you hope to have any success.

Contrasting Colors

Choosing the right layout and font is drastically important. Visual appeal is something that can make or break your company. Having a site with great content means nothing if people cannot stand to look at it. Your job is to create something with a balance. The font you choose should have an appealing color and be easy to read. The layout should be simple and easy for people to navigate.

Cream Of The Crop

Being professional is the key. You are running a business, so it is important for you to convey that in your web design. You don’t want to be haphazard and sloppy. This will give people the idea that this is how you run your business. Everyone makes mistakes sometimes, but you want to make sure that this is one area where you are flawless. Unfortunately, it is very difficult for a company to bounce back once people are not interested in them anymore.

Dime A Dozen

You should always include eye-catching elements, but don’t go overboard. There are many website owners that believe the way to attract customers is to place countless flashy animations on the site. While this may be appealing to a small child, it is not on the top of anyone’s list when it comes to great websites. Larger font and bold script are much better for getting people’s attention.

Enough Money

If building your website is too much for you, hire someone else to do it. Many people balk at hiring someone to create a website for them, but sometimes it is necessary. While you may want to exert independence and show people who you are, it is unwise to continue on your own if you are headed straight into a brick wall. One of the Web Designkeys to being a successful business owner is recognizing when you need help and going out there to get it.

Expectation

When you are in the process of designing a website, there are lots of things you need to consider. Hopefully, the article above has shed a lot of light on the subject. Web design is a tricky area, but doing the right research and paying close attention to any information given to you can lead you straight to a great website.

    • You can take the following approach.
      1. Make sure your site is well optimized including title, meta tags, the content and the internal linking between your content is relevant e.g. a page having a joke about animals can also have a section called related jokes and related videos which are linked to with good anchor text containing your target keywords..
      2. As jokes and funny videos tend to be shared across various mediums, you can build a good link aquisition strategy by providing updates through email, bookmarking, sharing across social media and promoting through directories, joke sites, feeds, etc. Try and get relevant links to target pages with your target anchor text
      3. You can build a network with other jokers :-) so you get traffic from them and share their jokes as well, some kind of a platform for collaboration.

    What Makes The Search Results Changes In Internet Every Time? When anyone searches the internet by a search engine the results are not the same if searched after a month. what make articles appear and diappear from the search engine?

    • Well, I know Google had these “spiders” that will look through every webpage and it actually will display the most recently updated websites at the top of the list… so the search will most likely never be the same.

    How To Stop Commercial Sites From Re-directing My Search Engine Results To Their Sites? When I get on a search engine such as google or yahoo to search for whatever, once i get the search engine results and I try to click on any of the links, it re-directs me to some commercial website. I don’t know how this happened, but now I can never search for anything because it gets me no where but commercial sites. Do you have any idea how I can fix this problem?

    Is Anyone Else Having Problems With Search Engines Giving Crap Results? It seems that every search I have done in the last 24 hours yields me junk results that have nothing to do with what I typed in. i.e. I typed in Oriental Shorthair Rescue & got back find. com, some porn sites, ebay, monster, etc. I even typed in craiglist and got back something the same. Instead of being craigslist, I got some stupid replica website.

    This was on more than one search engine also. I have tried google, msn, and yahoo.
    Also, I do use qoutation marks when I am searching as it narrows out junk most of the time. So, the addition signs and qoutation marks aren’t helping any.
    Got it straightened out. It was a virus/spyware that added something onto my ‘net. So, the first answer was correct.

    • Learn to search better…

      Try your search in quotes…
      “Oriental Shorthair Rescue”

      Or you can try…
      +Oriental +Shorthair +Rescue
      … to ensure each word must be found in your search.

      Also, turn on SafeSearch for the site you are using, to avoid getting porn sites in the results.

      It’s not the sites… it is the way you are searching.

    Order Of Internet Search Engine Results? On friday I typed a word into Google and found a web site – it was the 6th link that was showed. Today when I typed in the same word into Google, the same website ranked 3rd in the results. Does this happen often, and if so, why?
    Thanks

    • Google (and other search engines) are constantly scanning the Web to check what links to what, so they can determine how to rank their results.

      The essential magic of Google (from the very start) is the notion that “good pages link to good pages”, so if you have a webpage, and you link to someone else about “turbocharged engines”, then Google’s search engine thinks you trust that site, so it will rank that site higher.

      This strategy encouraged unscrupulous individuals to try to “game” the system by creating fake sites that all point to one master site, which then floats up to the top of the SERPs (search engine result pages). It’s a dirty trick, but so common that even Google hasn’t figure out how to filter out all the spam.

      Since new sites are constantly coming and going, Google’s “robot” (the ‘Googlebot’) crawls around the Web, noticing changes, and updating it’s internal list of rankings. What you see when you search is a list of rankings that correspond to your keywords, which are affected by these sites creating or destroying links.

    Search Engines? How do yahoo and google searches compare with other lesser known search engines?

    1. What kind of pages would they not return results for?

    2. if i wanted to search for pages from certain European sites for example, what engine should i use?
    I need info from certain italian websites

    • Google si still the best, if you want to search in Italian website, just choose the appropriate option (click on the option on the right); forn instance you can choose both if you’re searching for results in Italian language or from Italian sites (there is a specifci choice for this).

      Anyway, remember no more than 20/25% of all websites are indexed on even the best website.
      The top by this point of view was used to be Northernlight.

    Why Are Some Search Engines Better Than Others? I used dogpile.com search engine and it was awful. It brought up nothing I was looking for, it didnt even come close. Yahoo didn’t bring up what I needed but it was closer. So why are some search engines better than others?

    • Different searching algorithms. They are closely guarded secrets. Dogpile is a meta-search engine, no real searching on its own. It is better to use several search engines to maximize the number of results. There are a lot of them out there.
