Google's SEO Advice For Your Website: Content

The web pages actually at the top of Google have only one thing clearly in common: good writing. Don't get so caught up in the usual SEO sacred cows and bugbears, such as PageRank, frames, and JavaScrpt, that you forget your site's content.

SEO: Four Vital Steps for Optimizing Your Website

Below are four basic steps that you should take when optimizing your web pages.

SEO: One Link is Better than Ten

That can't be right! Shouldn't ten links be better than one? It is usually the case where more is better.

Four Reasons Why The Smaller Search Engines Matter

These days, all search engine optimization gurus only seem to talk about Google, as if Google was the only search engine on the Internet.

How to Get the Highest Search Engine Rankings

Search Engine Rankings. Everyone wants to be number one, and there are millions of web sites out there. So how do you become number one and stay there consistently? Consistently is the key word here. Sure, you may apply the newest, best trick in the book today, but when someone else comes out with a better one tomorrow, you will be scrambling to get to the top again.

Recent Changes at Google, Yahoo, and MSN

There are many changes taking place in the top search engines. Google, Yahoo, and MSN are all adapting to the many transformations occuring within the search industry. Because of these changes, I thought I would take the time to give you an overview of what's taking place within the market and how it affects you as a webmaster. To begin, let's start with Google. Back in 2003, Google would index and crawl the web about once a month and everything would change all in one shot.
