Search Engine Spiders

Launching a website is an excellent way to get more exposure for your brand. But it is important to create a quality design so your site looks professional. You should go over the following article if you need help with your web design.

Assess your web design skills carefully. You should not start working on projects you are not comfortable with. If something sounds too complicated, give yourself some time to acquire new skills and practice. It is best to launch a very simple website or even a blog so you can get more time to study HTML and other languages. Try finding a web hosting service with a quality site-building tool if you do not want to launch a blog.

Create a site your visitors can navigate easily. You should organize your elements so the most important information appears toward the top of your page. Place your menu in a visible spot, for instance, between your header and your text or on one side of your text. Your design should not distract visitors from your content or make navigation difficult.

It is best to create a simple design that corresponds to current web design trends. Do not create an innovating web design unless you are very comfortable with different languages. Focus on creating a design that looks clean and professional. You can create a more artistic design if the goal of your website is to display a portfolio for your art.

Avoid using design elements that will get in the way of search engine spiders. Your pages will rank higher in search results if you create a simple design. Avoid using images for your background and your header to make your pages easier to read. If possible, place your main elements at the top of your HTML pages and use CSS to define their actual position.

Learn about Java Script or Flash if you want to create some interactive elements. These languages will allow you to create a more modern website and keep your visitors interested by making your content more interactive. Give yourself enough time to fully master these languages before using them to create a web design. Make sure you optimize these elements with strong keywords since search engine spiders cannot read these languages.

Test your website carefully before launching it. Your design should be error free so as not to hinder the experience of your visitors. You can use the W3C website to test all your HTML pages for mistakes. Test all your links manually and make sure your pages can be displayed with different browsers and under different resolutions. Keep in mind that a website filled with errors will not create a positive image for your brand.

These tips will help you create a quality web design and launch a successful website for your brand. Take all the time you need to learn more about web design and perhaps learn how to use different languages so you can create a more complex design for your website.

    How Can I Write A Cover Letter For An Office Clerk Position? I am writing a cover letter for a part-time admin assistant position. However, every time I try to write a cover letter it reads just like my resume because I am too specific about my job skills.
    For example, I will mention that I edited websites, made phone calls, filed documents and used Microsoft Excel.

    As an alternative, I *could* mention my accomplishments. For example, I used my clerical skills to help plan an event. And I used my web design skills to help the organization to re-design their website. But how can I make my accomplishments relevant to the job I’m applying for?

    1. How can I avoid making my cover letter sound like my resume?

    2. How can I make my accomplishments relevant to the requirements of the job?

    3. What types of professional/personal traits should I mention for an administrative assistant cover letter?
    Here is the job that I am applying for:

    Executive Assistant

    Technological/Office skills (Advanced MS Office, Adobe Acrobat/Forms, online research, skills are required, InDesign or similar, OneNote, general tech-savvy, and good writing/design are pluses)
    Great organizational skills
    Honesty and pleasant personality, etc.

      Server specification is very important! It is also important to know which data center the server is hosted at, and last how good the hosting company’s support is. I get 24/7 support from my hosting company (Trance Host) and they have super fast servers.

    What Exactly Is A Web Host? If i subscribe to a web host would they ask me to buy a domain name or is it two completely different things?

      A Web host is in the business of providing server space, Web services and file maintenance for Web sites controlled by individuals or companies that do not have their own Web servers. Many ISPs, such as America Online, will allow subscribers a small amount of server space to host a personal Web page. Other commercial ISPs will charge the user a fee depending on the complexity of the site being hosted.

      The business of providing the storage, connectivity, and services necessary to serve files for a website.

      A company that provides web hosting services is called a web host, and their detailed offers of storage, connectivity, and services are called web hosting plans.

      There are literally thousands of web hosting services, ranging from individuals to worldwide corporations, and many web hosts offer multiple web hosting plans.

      Below are basic checklists with some factors to consider when searching for a web host and a web hosting plan. Your requirements may vary.

      Company – dependability, stability, profitability.
      People – honesty, integrity, professionalism.
      Location – local, regional, national, worldwide.
      Reliability – uptime measured as a percentage.
      Redundancy – multiple connections to the Net.
      Availability – can handle peak traffic volumes.
      Scalability – prepared to accomodate growth.
      Hardware – fast servers with quality components.
      Monitoring – automatic checking of the network.
      Backups – good frequency and easy recovery.
      Technical Support – experienced and helpful.
      Support Hours – real 24/7 vs. promised 24/7.
      Response Time – average in minutes or hours.
      Support Methods – free/toll phone, email, IM.
      Policies – accepts or rejects offensive sites.
      Fine Print – does it contradict the big print

    How Hard Is Web-designing? I am currently a Graphic designer, but I’m also interested in Web-designing.? I would like to know if web designing is hard?? and can it be learned up quickly??

      Web design is halfway between graphic design and programming. The task is essentially taking a visual design and implementing it in code.

      With experience, you’ll learn which graphic design elements are easy to translate to the web, which will require serious work, and which to avoid altogether.

      You’ll need to learn HTML (the basic language of the web) and CSS (advanced layout and design) to do it well, but there are a few professional WYSIWYG tools that will certainly help. But the sooner you learn the actual code, the more powerful your web design skills will become.

      A search engine operates, in the following order

      1. Web crawling
      2. Indexing
      3. Searching

      Web search engines work by storing information about a large number of web pages, which they retrieve from the WWW itself. These pages are retrieved by a Web crawler (sometimes also known as a spider) — an automated Web browser which follows every link it sees. Exclusions can be made by the use of robots.txt. The contents of each page are then analyzed to determine how it should be indexed (for example, words are extracted from the titles, headings, or special fields called meta tags). Data about web pages are stored in an index database for use in later queries. Some search engines, such as Google, store all or part of the source page (referred to as a cache) as well as information about the web pages, whereas others, such as AltaVista, store every word of every page they find. This cached page always holds the actual search text since it is the one that was actually indexed, so it can be very useful when the content of the current page has been updated and the search terms are no longer in it. This problem might be considered to be a mild form of linkrot, and Google’s handling of it increases usability by satisfying user expectations that the search terms will be on the returned webpage. This satisfies the principle of least astonishment since the user normally expects the search terms to be on the returned pages. Increased search relevance makes these cached pages very useful, even beyond the fact that they may contain data that may no longer be available elsewhere.

      When a user comes to the search engine and makes a query, typically by giving key words, the engine looks up the index and provides a listing of best-matching web pages according to its criteria, usually with a short summary containing the document’s title and sometimes parts of the text. Most search engines support the use of the boolean terms AND, OR and NOT to further specify the search query. An advanced feature is proximity search, which allows users to define the distance between keywords.

      The usefulness of a search engine depends on the relevance of the result set it gives back. While there may be millions of webpages that include a particular word or phrase, some pages may be more relevant, popular, or authoritative than others. Most search engines employ methods to rank the results to provide the “best” results first. How a search engine decides which pages are the best matches, and what order the results should be shown in, varies widely from one engine to another. The methods also change over time as Internet usage changes and new techniques evolve.

      Most Web search engines are commercial ventures supported by advertising revenue and, as a result, some employ the controversial practice of allowing advertisers to pay money to have their listings ranked higher in search results. Those search engines which do not accept money for their search engine results make money by running search related ads alongside the regular search engine results. The search engines make money everytime someone clicks on one of these ads.

      The vast majority of search engines are run by private companies using proprietary algorithms and closed databases, though some are open source

      the new engines ,like snap and powerset are actually better than google

      Snap is a search engine that displays possible search queries as you type and shows results with a logo of the top level domain.

      The Snap site also includes:

      * A find as you type suggestion tool for popular search queries.
      * A news filtering device called Snap News, which lets users search and filter news in an as-you-type fashion.
      * A statistics page showing revenue, search and advertiser statistics.
      * Three types of paid advertising, including standard pay per click, fixed cost pay per action and variable cost per action. In the cost per action options, advertisers pay Snap either a fixed fee or a percentage of the total sale. The advertiser is only charged when the action is completed. An action may be a sale or the completion of an online form.

      Snap was founded by Idealab in October 2004. The name “Snap” was purchased and no longer has any connection with the earlier search engine of the same name.

    I Want To Learn Web Designing And Programming, Which Skills Will I Need?

    View Comment

      Web Design:
      PHP or ASP
      Knowledge of running a web server would help too
      Also, some SQL would help

      It really depends what you want to do. No one person is a master of all languages, but on the other hand some languages are close enough for skills in one to apply in the other. eg. learning Java will make learning C/C++ much easier. And learning JavaScript will make learning Java a little easier. Learning BASIC/Visual Basic can be a simpler introduction to programming, since you can use it in a variety of environments (macros, ASP, MS Access programming).

      Know Java and C++ well, and you can figure out most languages. Programming requires a good sense of logic, and of course knowing computer basics will make it easier (using the operating system, using command line, etc).
