Paying Attention

Maybe you’ve tried blogging in the past and just haven’t been that successful, or maybe you are just getting started. Whatever situation is yours, you want to know how to run a successful blog. Well, you have to be knowledgeable about what goes into this process. So, continue reading to find out what it takes and what you can do to be a successful blogger.

Attention

If you’re not knowledgeable about the topic you’re blogging about and passionate as well, then you’re not going to fare well. Sure you can do research for certain blog posts, but you need to pick a niche that you’re passionate and knowledgeable about. Otherwise, you’re going to run out of things to say within your niche. After all, it’s hard to come up with new material sometimes, and you will find that out. But, you can be doing things to make sure you find new material as well.

Banner Ads

You have to be consistent with your posts. If you keep stopping and starting with your postings, or are regularly inconsistent, you’re not going to keep people’s attention. It is also important to realize this from the very beginning. Say you start posting once a day. Well, you have to realize that you’re going to have to keep that up! >

Think about what people want to know regarding your niche. Be the expert! If you can provide expert material regarding your niche, then people are going to listen to you. They will read what you have to say, and they will come back for more. An expert post gathers more followers for your next post, and you will soon see that this gains you momentum with each post.

    How To Make A Page Not Indexed By Search Engines? I am building a website and have a few pages that I don’t want to show up in search results, such as a TOS page and a completed orders page. How can I code for search engines to not index these files?
    No follow might work but one page is already a top google result, how do I get it off their index?

      The search engines should be easy enough to stop, just put a file called “robots.txt” in the root directory with this in it:

      User-agent: *
      Disallow: /

      This is intriduction to robots.txt http://www.javascriptkit.com/howto/robots.shtml

    How Often Do I Need To Submit My Site To The Major Search Engines? How often do I need to submit my site to the major search engines? I keep seeing ads that promise to submit my website to thousands of search engines each month for around $20. Is it worth it?

      Definitely no?
      one time page submission in search engine is enough. it will be indexed there permanently.

      so if they say they will bring your website in top ten result of every search engine, then they are fraud. because

      optimization starts from your page source, keywords used in your page, and your niche.

      sometimes paid seo will be good comparing to own optimization.

    How Do I Change The Default Search Engine On My BlackBerry Curve? I have a Curve 8350 with Verizon and the default search engine is Bing. I’m not wild about Bing. There’s a drop-down menu to change the default search engine in the browser configuration but the only option is Bing. How can I change it to Google?

    View Comment

      My Verizon Curve 8530 is set the same way, as having Bing as my only option and I’m not a fan either. I looked all over online, but so far there is no way to add another search engine. So I imagine that Verizon has entered into an agreement with MS just like they did with Skype.

      Anyway, I just got the Google app and keep it right on my home screen. It is way nicer than Bing, I can tell you that and the Voice Search is very handy.

      Hope this helps!

      Hi

      Most major search engines will find your website naturally, however it is possible to manually submit to search engines (here’s Googles for example – http://www.google.co.uk/submit_content.html) There are tools available to submit sites to multiple search engines but this isn’t something that is recommended.

      The description under the link in the serps is called a meta description. This can be changed by editing the More details here -http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2067564/How-To-Use-HTML-Meta-Tags

      I think your visited sites are showing as the first result in Google because you are logged into a Google account? You can simply log out to prevent this or go to the following link – https://history.google.com/history and make sure “Web History is off” you may also need to go to search settings and turn off personal results. This will then show the true search results.

      Hope this helps!

    Directory Style Search Engine? What is Directory style search engine

      Hi Caz…

      There are two main types of search engine… Directory based and Key Word driven.

      Directory search engines are the likes of http://www.Yell.com, http://www.BT.com/thephonebook, http://www.thomsonlocal.com, along with home pages of most broadband service providers like Tiscali etc. This is where people can search for a business or service in a certain area; eg: Who, What, Where search like ‘Builders’ in ‘Birmingham’ They are ‘powered’ by the databases of BT and Thomson Local.

      Key word searches bring results of more specific ‘phrase’ enquiries. The results of a ‘key word’ search are list or database of Websites who’s content and preferred keywords have been checked by the engine’s ‘spiders’ and stored on the database, and shown only if the website content has relevence to the search word or phrase you have entered. Google, Yahoo etc are examples.

      You can normally tell if it is a Directory style search as there will normally have two or three boxes to put the info, eg Business Name (Who); Business Type (What); Town or Postcode (Where). Key word search generally only have one box to enter your question or keywords.

      Hope that is not too ‘techie’ and answers your question for you.

      Search engines work basically by searching sites that are linked to by sites they already know about. So in order to get your site to appear on search engines, you need to get links to it on sites that already appear on search engines.

      My suggestion is go to your favorite search engine and search for sites on MPD. Look through the sites that come up for sites that include lists of links to related sites, then contact the owners of a few of those and see if they’d be willing to add your site to their list of links. Your best bet are sites that link to sites similar to yours and say on them that you can contact them if you want your website listed too.

    Does A Search Engine Spider…? – Download the text of web pages for a search engine

    or

    – store all information for the search engine?

      When a search engine crawls a page it checks for relevancy between the meta tags in the head of the page, and it’s connection to actual text within that same page. It also checks the links to other pages and crawls them for the same information.
      If you have a meta tag that defines the page, and then no text to match that tag, it will not keep that information due to the lack of relevancy. Meta tags and keywords can be a bit confusing, but they are exactly what the search ingines use when crawling a site. The only info stored by the search engine is the Title and Description as well as the link to how to get to that site. Hope this helps

    Charity Search Engine? 1 cent for each search on this search engine

      There are many search engines available that donate to charity. A popular one is GoodSearch.com. Some allow the user to pick the charity, others have their own list they send the donation to. There are several questions you should ask when selecting which charity search engine to use. Go to http://www.everydaygivingblog.com/2007/07/charitable-sear.html for some of these questions (and a long list of charitable search engines).

    How Meta Search Engine Design? Can we create meta search engine with java scripts or similar simple way? I had seen some meta search engines?

    View Comment
    1. Reply

      A meta search engine is simply just a search site which contact other search sites for their results, and then put them on their own site.

      Dogpile (see link below) is one such engine which combine results from both Yahoo Search, MSN Search Ask and Google.

      And yes you could write one yourself — all the above search engines have a API you can use to create your own meta-searches.

      If you uses FireFox you may even be able to create your meta searches as a PlugIn — you can checkout the googlewikia-plugin as an example of how that is done.

      Fefoo is not a search engine, its an application that helps you search better. It uses the traditional search engines to search. You search on categories and your search is more refined from the time you start searching. In case you don’t use categories it works like a normal search engine.

    Search Engines? Do you know where I can find a professional search engine that is credible?

    View Comment
    1. Reply

      In the search engine list below. you can find the major search engines of the web.
      Why are these considered to be “major” search engines? Because they are either well-known or well-used.

      For webmasters, the major search engines are the most important places to be listed, because they can potentially generate so much traffic.

      For searchers, well-known, commercially-backed search engines generally mean more dependable results. These search engines are more likely to be well-maintained and upgraded when necessary, to keep pace with the growing web.

      – Google
      – Yahoo
      – Ask
      – AllTheWeb.com
      -AOL Search-

      -Gigablast
      -Live Search

    What Happened To My Search Engines? I did a system restore and now all my search engines are gone. How do I get them back and where did they go?

      Search engines are just websites to search things such as google.com, bing.com, yahoo.com, ask.com, etc. Just go to your Internet browser such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, etc. and just type in the search engine website.

      Here are a list of search engines you can try:
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_search_engines
      or
      http://www.philb.com/webse.htm

      Google is the most popular and reliable search engine, so I recommend that and probably a million other people would agree with me too.
