Information Search Engine

Information Search Engine

When you build your own web page you need to understand that the field is ever changing and the primary concern is how the search engine providers view your site. Obviously high quality content will lead to a continual stream of traffic but if the site is not designed properly, your ranking will be low and few people will find you. This article will offer some suggestions to ensure a good ranking and that your target niche will have no issues seeing your site when they search for relevant keywords. If you are looking to build your own website, this article will assist you in making your site a success so please continue reading for more information.

Design Components

Search engine optimization is a priority in order to achieve a high ranking in search engines. There is far more to it than loading the page with relevant keywords, don’t go more than 2 per 150 words or they may penalize you by the way. You also need to be concerned with your links as they all need to be working as well as other pages that link to you as the more that do the higher your rank. Don’t just set up dummy pages to link to your site as this will also hurt you. Those pages need to have relevant content as well and a good idea is to simply work out affiliations with others to link to so the crawlers know the sites are legitimate. Your keywords need to be relevant to the topic you are publishing content on meaning you should not just drop popular keyword on your site to try and get more interest when they have little to do with your subject matter.

Desktop ComputerWeb Designs

Always stick with a professional layout and one or two standard fonts to ensure that your site does not have compatibility issues with different operating systems and browsers. This will also prevent issues on smartphones as those operating systems are extremely limited in the fonts they recognize.

Engine

Obviously you want your site to stand out from others but again we need to remember those portable devices everyone uses today. These devices are small in nature and have smaller processors leading to difficulties loading pages that have been ramped up with animations, videos and large images. It is fine to add graphics as long as they are moderate in size and load easily on all platforms and operating systems.

Firefox

Keep navigational panels and buttons or tabs easy to find and simple to use. There is no need to go crazy trying to be artistic by blending these into the background of the layout. Keep everything simple and allow the visitor the ability to navigate through your site quickly.

Fonts

Finally, remember the costs for your design. When you include this with monthly hosting fees and realize that it takes time to generate enough income to offset your costs, you will understand the need for a budget and the importance of sticking to it. Not only is your time worth money you won’t see for awhile but expensive design methods such as flash based content will not lead to any additional income to make them worthwhile.

Information

Keeping these suggestions in mind when you design your site will make the experience a whole lot simpler. You will be able to focus more on what matters, such as creating interesting content, and spend more time on small tweaks to improve the site as opposed to a complete overhaul where you have to start from scratch.

    The Name Of A Search Engine That Displays Pics And Info As On A Wall? I came across a cool search engine that displayed much information on a “wall” with pictures and info. Kinda like you see in movies when the police has a wall of info on their case.
    I know all the regular search engines like google, bing and yahoo. This was something completely different that pooped up when i was using “stumble”. I was a white background with a textfielt in the middle where it said : Write your word here, i think.

      I think you mean http://spacetime.com You should also try http://www.cooliris.com which is amazing for searching images and YouTube videos (it’s a free browser plugin).

    Why Do I Have To Battle With Yahoo To Keep Google As My Default Search Engine? Yahoo the amount of time it takes & the constant battle for the default search engine to remain Google based for for Firefox. Get it right yahoo with your options of information within your search engines ability.
    It seems that more consideration is put into Google’s first page that you go to, while surfing the net.

      On your PC, you should be asked to define your default search engine, (Yahoo, Google)you just need to choose one and then check the box as your default search engine. You may need to go into properties and assign the URL there also.

    My Idea Of Making Search Engine Data On Our Movement Total Nonsense And Unsellable To Advertising Agencies? Take any 10 words from the 3rd paragraph of a story that appears on page 5 of any newspaper – then paste that info into the search engine. Do a search and flick onto the 16th top entry and just leave it there.

    Hopefully the search engines that follow our movements will think that we are particularly interested in a topic and sell that piece of information on to advertisers not thinking it is pure rubbish. Therefore making a mockery of the search engines data gathering and ultimately unproductive.

    Have you any ideas?

      All you have to do is use an ‘anonymous proxy’ …for example, http://www.scroogle.org (which has the added advantage of stripping out all the ‘paid for’ adverts that normally appear at the top of the ‘hit list’)

      The ilfochrome lab in Burbank does an outstanding job. http://www.lab-ciba.com/

      You could also have them drum scanned into a file and then make ‘R’ prints just about anywhere you want. I have seen 30×40″ prints done very well with this technique. Either way you go it won’t be cheap.

    Search Engines? Can I have a list of reputable sarch engines that I can use to find topics and information for my college research papers? I CANNOT and WILL NOT use .com websites, even if the info listed there is true and reputable in itself. Examples of ones I CAN use are .edu,.gov, .net, etc. However, if the search engine is .com and it gives me the others, I can do that. Also, I have already tried Google, yahoo, and the most obvious ones out there.

    Thank you everyone who answers!

      Just guessing — a search engine searches the Internet and an IRS (good term!) searches everywhere on your PC/system, you know just like the other IRS could do if you’re busted for tax fraud.

    How Long Does It Take For Search Engines To Update Site Information? I have recently changed the home (index) page of my web site and am having some trouble locating the site using search engines such as Google. After typing in all the keywords it came up with some information which clearly comes from my updated home page but it also included such phrases as ‘this site is still under construction’ which relates to the old index page. Also the heading shown for the site simply says ‘template’ which I do not understand. I obviously want the title of the site when displayed on the net to be the same or nearly the same as my actual site name. HELP!

      There is no set time, all major search engines are constantly combing the net for updated sites, it can take from hours to days. Best practice is to use search tags that are unique to you (if possible) try not to put your tags within frames in the main page (search engines like plain html on the main page) and if you are desperate for listings consider paying fro them, for a business this could be worthwhile (but remember only certain key words can be listed). Hope this helps ?

      Dear HLS,

      Read the best answer I gave in Yahoo! Answers to the question “How do you remove yourself from a google search?” (see the link in the Source section below).

      I explain how to have your information removed from a page or site from search engine results pages (SERP)--you’ll have to do some work, though.

    Search Engine Optimization? Search Engine Optimization The Most Powerful Search Engine Marketing Software On The Web! <<<=== has anyone ever used these programs?

    View Comment
    1. Reply

      Hi,

      If your Web site have lots of pictures, but hardly any text (also called content or information). the search engines ignore graphics. They use software robots called spiders that spider your Web site (crawl through the text). Because you have very little content, the spiders will not find your Web site very tasty and will virtually ignore it.

      Which means you will get very little traffic to your Web site in the form of visitors, surfers, tire kickers, etc. When you went looking for a Web Site Builder, you should have made sure that they did search engine marketing (SEM) or optimization (SEO) – creating the Web site is only 10% of the project. The other 90% is SEM.

      To check how your Web site ranks go to (http://traffic-test.sitesell.com/waltera1.html). No data means that the search engines don’t know you exist, you are invisible to them. Invisible means no traffic = no visitors = no sales = no money.

      Hiring an expert to do SEM is expensive.

      You can apply to DMOS for a listing in their directory (http://dmoz.org/help/geninfo.html). It takes a long time to get accepted because a real person looks at your application, not a software robot like the search engine spider programs.

      If you are lucky enough to get listed, Google will index your Web site. You can also submit your Google sitemap to Google to get them to index your Web site. You have to go to Google and get the URL for the sitemap and then create a separate Web page for that sitemap.

      I assume you want to get a low page rank in Google. If that is true you need to do search engine marketing (SEM).

      If you had the right Site Build It software, Site Build it software would do all submitting for you automatically.

      Here is a tool you can use to check on how your Web site stacks up against other Web sites – (http://searchit.sitesell.com/waltera1.html). Check for Popularity to get Alexa Rank.

      There are only 4 or 5 search engines worth submitting to, the rest are a waste of time and money.

      The best way to get traffic is via lots of pages with quality content for the SEs to spider.

      Craigslist is just one arrow in your quiver of search engine marketing arrows. It’s free.

      Hey! Did you know that the major search engines are going local? They are spending millions on local search. This is just another reason to have your own Web site, such as whatever.com. You should definitely have a dot com as part of your URL. This is what surfers expect.

      SEO or search engine marketing (SEM) is critical for the success of your web site. Without it, you will get no targeted traffic.

      If you own a Web site, the Web site building software should have included SEO. Otherwise, using the software is a waste of time; the Web site building software is useless. SEO includes Internet marketing and while articles posting, etc. is important, the most important thing is to select the right keywords that people use to find your Web site. You need to do keyword analysis to find the best keywords for your Web site.

      Then, you need to sprinkle those keywords onto your Web pages so that the search engines will find them as their spiders crawl your Web site as well as putting them in your Title, Keywords, headings and description.

      Why? Think about how the major search engines work. They key on what word or phrases the users enter. How do you find keywords that users want? Use Google itself at this URL:

      https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal

      Just enter your keyword and it will tell you what the demand is for that keyword and how much it would cost to advertise it on Google via Google AdWords.

      Supply and demand is important for keywords. You want to find the keywords with a huge demand, but very little supply.

      Let me digress here and explain Supply and Demand. Assume that bad weather wipes out the coffee growing part of the world. The supply of coffee world-wide drops. But the demand is the same or increasing. Because there is a disconnect between the demand and the supply, the price of coffee goes up. It becomes a scarce commodity. Scarcity drives up prices. Look at oil and gasoline. There is plenty of oil, but the oil cartel, the companies that control how much oil is pumped out of the ground, decides how much to pump. They make sure they don’t pump too much. This would increase the supply and drive down the price of oil and gasoline. Same thing happens to coffee. The growers will plant more coffee to offset their bad year and soon the price of coffee plummets.

      Same with keywords, some are scarce. Those are the ones you want, high demand, little supply.

      Another good keyword analyzer is Wordtracker.com. This will cost you money, but it’s the best on the Web.

      This is a very good book for building traffic: Search Engine Optimization – An Hour A Day by Jennifer Grappone and Gradiva Couzin. Their advice is mostly free.

      With this book you do not need any costly SEO services.

      There are Web site builders that do most of this SEO for you. Most free web site builders do not include SEO. That’s why most of them are a waste of time. Creating a Web site is easy, but it is only 10% of the job. The other 90% is SEO and it is critically important.

      Do you know about Alexa rank? Alexa is an Amazon company that ranks Web sites. It takes the most active Web site which total about 65 million and compares your web site to all of them. Here is how to get to the Alexa Point Test:.http://traffic-test.sitesell.com/waltera1.html
      If you have a rank under 500,000 you are doing good, it you are under 100,000 you are fantastic. Google is under 10. (http://traffic-test.sitesell.com/waltera1.html) Most free Web sites get a rank of “no data”; that means they are invisible to the search engines; they get no visitors, no targeted traffic. No traffic = no money.

      The Web sites that score high on Alexa have lots of content. Content is king on the Internet. What is content? Its information, information that visitors find interesting and relevant to your keywords. The more pages you have on your Web site, the better. If you have only 5 or 6 pages, the search engines will ignore you. Once you get to about 30 pages, the search engines will begin to take notice. At that time you should begin to link to other Web sites. The search engines love links, but you must avoid link farms.

      Trying to game the search engines is a thankless task. They have computer science PHds developing their search engine spiders. Do you think you can compete with them? Not likely.

      Sneaky techniques are called “black hat” optimization. Won’t work. The SEs are changing constantly. You cannot find out what they do or how they do it. When someone finds a crack, they seal it up.

      Linking is important. SEs love links. Site build it software includes automatic link exchanging.

      Work hard to create more useful sites, more Web pages Get great software for building web sites. One that does SEO for you.

      The best way to get more traffic is to have lots of pages, 100s of them, thousands are better, with relevant content (information). SEs love quality content.

      If you have the right Site Build it software, the software submits to search engines automatically, as I said above.

      How did you build your Web site? I hope it wasn’t one of those free web builder sites.

      You see, there are lots of Web sites that will build a Web site for you. That’s where they end. Building a Web site as you probably know is only solving 5% of the puzzle. The other 95% is search engine optimization and internet marketing. Most Web Site Build It software will only do the first 5%, then they nickel and dime you to death with add-ons that purport to do SEO and internet marketing. Unfortunately most of them are scams.

      So what is one to do if there is no help from your Web site building software. Do you know about NVU? This is a free web site builder that emuilates Microsofts Front Page and did I mention that it’s FREE. Go here to download: http://www.nvu.com/index.php. However, like most free Web sites it does not do SEM.

      Get better software for Site Building. One that has some keyword analysis. Getting search engines to spider your Web site depends on your keyword selection.

      Listen! The SEs find Web site by searching for keywords. If a Web site has the right keywords or phrases, the SEs will find it and send you to the front of the class.

      But how do you know which keywords are the best. Ahhh! That’s the question and I will give you a web site that does keyword analysis and it’s free.

      The Google AdWords Keyword Tool is an excellent preliminary brainstorming tool. Let’s say that you have ten ideas for a theme or Site Concept. This tool gives you a superb “high level snapshot” of how profitable each of your Site Concept possibilities might be. Here’s the URL: https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal – remember, it’s free

      Here’s a book you might find helpful: Increase Your Web Traffic In A Weekend by Jerry Lee Ford, Jr and William R Stanek.

      Then, there is Brad Tabke’s “26 steps to 15K a day”. It boils down to solid content thoughtfully put together can make more impact than a decade’s worth of tweaks that may or may not work such as fiddling with META tags. Find his 26 steps here: (http://www.frihost.com/forums/vt-2797.html).

      Brad also created and runs one of the best forums for Web site building information at: (http://www.webmasterworld.com/).

      This is the exact same plan used by Site Build It. See Ken’s blog: (http://blogit.sitesell.com/waltera1.html). I’m not saying Brad stole it from Ken Evoy, but Ken developed what is known as the C + T + P + M formula.

      This is how the formula works:
      Create in-demand content (information) – C
      Attract Targeted Traffic (visitors) – T
      Presell Those Visitors – P
      Monitize Presold Traffic – M

      Content
      Web users search for information, for solutions. They are not looking for you – they don’t even know you (yet!). They seek what you know. Give it to them. Convert your knowledge into in-demand Content. (http://ctpm.sitesell.com/waltera1.html) To succeed online, start where they start – at “the search.”

      Traffic
      Your topical content ranks high at the Search Engines (ex., Google, Yahoo!, MSN), attracting free, targeted (i.e., interested), open-to-you visitors. Basically, these future customers “meet you” at your site. These visitors are known as “Traffic.”.

      PREsell
      Complete strangers develop trust and confidence in you. Why? You “PREsell” by OVERdelivering what they seek… relevant, original, information.

      Deliver it in your own voice, in your own way. Go beyond merely instilling confidence… your visitors will like you.

      Monetize
      Convert warm, willing-to-buy (“PREsold”) visitors into income. Called “Monetizing,” this is the easy part. But “M” cannot happen if you fail to first execute C T P. This is where 99% of small businesses fail.

      P.S. Start a blog to promote your Web site. Word press is a good one. It you have the right Web Site Build software, it includes a blog feature so that every time you create a new page, it gets posted on the Web as a blog. Turn your blog into articles and submit them to article sites with your URL.

      P.P.S. You flat out do not have enough content on your Web site. If you did the SEs would find you. You need more information, more Web pages with quality content, to attract traffic via the SEs.. One page Web sites have no no content. Create more pages. Use the content to submit articles to article Web sites. Make sure the articles refer back to your Web page. This will attract more visitors and the SEs.

      P.P.P.S. Good articles on search engine marketing here – no hype – (http://www.jehochman.com/articles/).

    Difference Between Meta Search Engine And Distributed Information Retrieval?

      Distributed information retrieval by using cooperative meta searchengines
      Sato, N.; Uehara, M.; Sakai, Y.; Mori, H.
      Distributed Computing Systems Workshop, 2001 International Conference on
      Volume , Issue , Apr 2001 Page(s):345 – 350
      Digital Object Identifier 10.1109/CDCS.2001.918728
      Summary:Information retrieval is frequently used for the Internet. However, we face the problem that the update intervals of conventional search engines are too long. It is difficult for conventional search engines to make their intervals short because they are based on a centralized architecture. So, we proposed the Cooperative Search Engine (CSE), which is based on a distributed architecture. CSE can realize the shortening of the update interval. In CSE, a large search engine is constructed from multiple local meta search engines that cooperate with each other. CSE can accomplish correct ranking in a distributed fashion because each local meta search engine hides the difference between its local search engine and the others. The article discusses the design and experimental evaluations of CSE

    What Occurs When You Use A Search Engine? How Does It Obtain Information? I have to make a poster showing the individual steps that it takes for information to show up on your computer when you use a search engine. Some of the key words I have to use are RAM, processor, input device, hyperlink, etc. I’m not sure where to start. I could use some help!

      Internet search engines are special sites on the Web that are designed to help people find information stored on other sites. There are differences in the ways various search engines work, but they all perform three basic tasks:
      They search the Internet — or select pieces of the Internet — based on important words.
      They keep an index of the words they find, and where they find them.
      They allow users to look for words or combinations of words found in that index.

But the demand is the same or increasing. Because there is a disconnect between the demand and the supply, the price of coffee goes up. It becomes a scarce commodity. Scarcity drives up prices. Look at oil and gasoline. There is plenty of oil, but the oil cartel, the companies that control how much oil is pumped out of the ground, decides how much to pump. They make sure they don’t pump too much. This would increase the supply and drive down the price of oil and gasoline. Same thing happens to coffee. The growers will plant more coffee to offset their bad year and soon the price of coffee plummets.

      Same with keywords, some are scarce. Those are the ones you want, high demand, little supply.

      Another good keyword analyzer is Wordtracker.com. This will cost you money, but it’s the best on the Web.

      This is a very good book for building traffic: Search Engine Optimization – An Hour A Day by Jennifer Grappone and Gradiva Couzin. Their advice is mostly free.

      With this book you do not need any costly SEO services.

      There are Web site builders that do most of this SEO for you. Most free web site builders do not include SEO. That’s why most of them are a waste of time. Creating a Web site is easy, but it is only 10% of the job. The other 90% is SEO and it is critically important.

      Do you know about Alexa rank? Alexa is an Amazon company that ranks Web sites. It takes the most active Web site which total about 65 million and compares your web site to all of them. Here is how to get to the Alexa Point Test:.http://traffic-test.sitesell.com/waltera1.html
      If you have a rank under 500,000 you are doing good, it you are under 100,000 you are fantastic. Google is under 10. (http://traffic-test.sitesell.com/waltera1.html) Most free Web sites get a rank of “no data”; that means they are invisible to the search engines; they get no visitors, no targeted traffic. No traffic = no money.

      The Web sites that score high on Alexa have lots of content. Content is king on the Internet. What is content? Its information, information that visitors find interesting and relevant to your keywords. The more pages you have on your Web site, the better. If you have only 5 or 6 pages, the search engines will ignore you. Once you get to about 30 pages, the search engines will begin to take notice. At that time you should begin to link to other Web sites. The search engines love links, but you must avoid link farms.

      Trying to game the search engines is a thankless task. They have computer science PHds developing their search engine spiders. Do you think you can compete with them? Not likely.

      Sneaky techniques are called “black hat” optimization. Won’t work. The SEs are changing constantly. You cannot find out what they do or how they do it. When someone finds a crack, they seal it up.

      Linking is important. SEs love links. Site build it software includes automatic link exchanging.

      Work hard to create more useful sites, more Web pages Get great software for building web sites. One that does SEO for you.

      The best way to get more traffic is to have lots of pages, 100s of them, thousands are better, with relevant content (information). SEs love quality content.

      If you have the right Site Build it software, the software submits to search engines automatically, as I said above.

      How did you build your Web site? I hope it wasn’t one of those free web builder sites.

      You see, there are lots of Web sites that will build a Web site for you. That’s where they end. Building a Web site as you probably know is only solving 5% of the puzzle. The other 95% is search engine optimization and internet marketing. Most Web Site Build It software will only do the first 5%, then they nickel and dime you to death with add-ons that purport to do SEO and internet marketing. Unfortunately most of them are scams.

      So what is one to do if there is no help from your Web site building software. Do you know about NVU? This is a free web site builder that emuilates Microsofts Front Page and did I mention that it’s FREE. Go here to download: http://www.nvu.com/index.php. However, like most free Web sites it does not do SEM.

      Get better software for Site Building. One that has some keyword analysis. Getting search engines to spider your Web site depends on your keyword selection.

      Listen! The SEs find Web site by searching for keywords. If a Web site has the right keywords or phrases, the SEs will find it and send you to the front of the class.

      But how do you know which keywords are the best. Ahhh! That’s the question and I will give you a web site that does keyword analysis and it’s free.

      The Google AdWords Keyword Tool is an excellent preliminary brainstorming tool. Let’s say that you have ten ideas for a theme or Site Concept. This tool gives you a superb “high level snapshot” of how profitable each of your Site Concept possibilities might be. Here’s the URL: https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal – remember, it’s free

      Here’s a book you might find helpful: Increase Your Web Traffic In A Weekend by Jerry Lee Ford, Jr and William R Stanek.

      Then, there is Brad Tabke’s “26 steps to 15K a day”. It boils down to solid content thoughtfully put together can make more impact than a decade’s worth of tweaks that may or may not work such as fiddling with META tags. Find his 26 steps here: (http://www.frihost.com/forums/vt-2797.html).

      Brad also created and runs one of the best forums for Web site building information at: (http://www.webmasterworld.com/).

      This is the exact same plan used by Site Build It. See Ken’s blog: (http://blogit.sitesell.com/waltera1.html). I’m not saying Brad stole it from Ken Evoy, but Ken developed what is known as the C + T + P + M formula.

      This is how the formula works:
      Create in-demand content (information) – C
      Attract Targeted Traffic (visitors) – T
      Presell Those Visitors – P
      Monitize Presold Traffic – M

      Content
      Web users search for information, for solutions. They are not looking for you – they don’t even know you (yet!). They seek what you know. Give it to them. Convert your knowledge into in-demand Content. (http://ctpm.sitesell.com/waltera1.html) To succeed online, start where they start – at “the search.”

      Traffic
      Your topical content ranks high at the Search Engines (ex., Google, Yahoo!, MSN), attracting free, targeted (i.e., interested), open-to-you visitors. Basically, these future customers “meet you” at your site. These visitors are known as “Traffic.”.

      PREsell
      Complete strangers develop trust and confidence in you. Why? You “PREsell” by OVERdelivering what they seek… relevant, original, information.

      Deliver it in your own voice, in your own way. Go beyond merely instilling confidence… your visitors will like you.

      Monetize
      Convert warm, willing-to-buy (“PREsold”) visitors into income. Called “Monetizing,” this is the easy part. But “M” cannot happen if you fail to first execute C T P. This is where 99% of small businesses fail.

      P.S. Start a blog to promote your Web site. Word press is a good one. It you have the right Web Site Build software, it includes a blog feature so that every time you create a new page, it gets posted on the Web as a blog. Turn your blog into articles and submit them to article sites with your URL.

      P.P.S. You flat out do not have enough content on your Web site. If you did the SEs would find you. You need more information, more Web pages with quality content, to attract traffic via the SEs.. One page Web sites have no no content. Create more pages. Use the content to submit articles to article Web sites. Make sure the articles refer back to your Web page. This will attract more visitors and the SEs.

      P.P.P.S. Good articles on search engine marketing here – no hype – (http://www.jehochman.com/articles/).

    Which Is The Best Search Engine ? Help me find the best search engine

      Google, in my opinion. There are others that are great in theory, like search engines that allow you to give to charities with each search you do. But for real information, Google, definitely. They put the most work into their search engine because it’s their main purpose as a company. They allow the most diverse range of types of searches, too, with images, videos, and news searches, and even an academic article search for more professional research.

      Submit your website manually to each individual search engine. You can also pay a search engine for a guaranteed listing. If you want to rank higher, relevant and updated content on your website is crucial. You also might need search engine marketing and search engine optimization. This deals with the optimization of meta tags and content on your website so that the search engines can find you better and rank you for what your website entails.
