Becoming the Don of Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate Wiseguy – On-Site SEO Components Three basic components will decide the bulk of your search engine rankings. They are:
We’ve pretty much covered the content factor. You need quality content that includes those keywords at a reasonable density to please the spiders (somewhat elusive, but between two and four percent keyword density for each term is generally accepted as the norm and a good target); that content needs to be pleasing to your humans more importantly, so write for them and where it makes sense to add in your targeted keywords, do so, but if it detracts from your content and makes it unreadable, let it go.
Tags are the other important component, as they work as a bit of a guide-system to search engine spiders; not only that, but when you include eye-catching key phrases, your visitor’s interest will be piqued as well. However, much of what exists in tags is never seen by people, so there is a bit more leeway here.
Tags are attached to all sorts of content to explain it to the spiders. There are tags for images, titles, keywords, and more.
Title tags are the most crucial of these, as they have a direct bearing on your rankings. Title tags serve as a description of the content on the page. Also, the information in the tag appears in the search results, giving that at-a-glance information that the searcher will use to decide which site they want to click on. Therefore, title tags are something you want to know about and use as part of your overall SEO campaign.
Meta tags are a couple of sentences that describe the content. Meta tags help place your content amongst the other sites, sort of explaining it to the search engine; they also appear in some searches to describe the site to the visitor.
They may bear on SEO, although the argument is that their impact is negligible. It is worth the few seconds to use them, and perhaps enter your key terms there, but you should be most concerned with other aspects of SEO.
The third factor in on-site SEO is your internal link structure. From the standpoint of search engines, the better websites have multiple pages of worthwhile content, and they create navigable internal link structures so that their visitors can get around easily and find the information they need. That is what you need to build for both your visitors and your spiders.
The internal link structure should be logical and usable. Humans will use it to read all that is of interest to them, and spiders will follow them to see where you can take them.
Give some consideration to this as you build your website, and think about how you can use your structure to help all involved, and also to direct visitors and search engines where you want them to go.
In addition to just having the basic static components in place, you also need to attend to the dynamics that affect your page ranking. For all intents and purposes, those dynamics are new content creation. Search engines are like sites that are up-to date and well-cared for. And from their point of view, sites that are up-to-date and well maintained are sites that change with the times. Therefore yes, updating content is important.
This does not mean, however, that you should go about changing your basic content every day—just that on a regular basis (and some say daily is best, but what a lot of work that would be! And Big Dogs aren’t into creating more work for themselves!) you need to add some new content.
The easiest way to do that is throw up a new article for the spiders to chew on. A blog attached to your website can be very useful for this purpose. Targeted visitors seeking assistance, however, will often prefer the formality of an article.
