Dear Valued Customer,

Welcome to the ninth edition of g-bit, the official customer newsletter. Spring is almost here, and we're continuing our fresh new section this month with some helpful hints regarding optimizing your site for search engines.

Read on for all the details. Feature Spotlight

Search Engine Optimization

When using an online search engine, you'll mainly get two types of search results: natural (sometimes called organic) results and paid (or sponsored) results.

Last month's issued highlighted your Bonus Offers page, which included ways for you to get into the sponsored results using free credits from Google®, Yahoo®, and MSN®. However, as you may realize from looking at your own personal experience, the natural results are just as important.

Search engines send out "spiders" (also known as robots or crawlers) to scan pages on the Internet and collect information for their databases. One of the important things spiders first look at is your meta information.

Meta Information

Make sure to include meta tags in the code of all your pages, plus fill in your title tag information. These look like:

<title>Your Product Name or Service - Location such as Home or Contact Us page</title>
<meta name="description" content="A sentence or two describing your website" />
<meta name="keywords" content="words or phrases that describe your site, separated by commas, for example, search engine, keywords, search engine optimization, meta tags, natural results" />

This code should be inserted in between your <head>...</head> tags found near the top of your page's code. You can use the Edit tool from the File Manager in your GCC to access the code for the pages in your public httpdocs folder.


In addition to optimizing your meta tag information, the PromoPak, which comes free with every account, has valuable tools to help you promote your site, including the Site Rank Checker, Site Submitter, and the Search Engine Spider Simulator.
