I have been recently captivated by the whole idea of Search Engine Optimization (more popularly referred to as SEO). This new interest in SEO has moved me to check it out. Is it all hype? Well, here is what I have found so far.
It works. I have optimized my main websites’ start page using SEO and I have noticed an increase in my web rankings. Right now, I have a Google PR of 4. Not too bad for just trying a thing, wouldn’t you say! You can check for yourself. Go to http://www.kgbiz05.com and see for yourself. And guess what? I am still in the process of further optimization, so look out for bigger things in the near future.
In addition, SEO aids in ridding your website of unnecessary items. For example, you may choose to use certain codes in your HTML that may cause your site not to get ranked or even recieve a low rank. Or you may leave out vital information that would aid in achieving those coveted rankings. Heads up! Thanks to Search Engine Optimization, you will be able to know ‘what to’ and ‘what not to’ do so as to make the search engines like your website. The better optimized your website is, the more frequently a search engine will spider your website and get it indexed much quicker.
I can attest to all of the above. You may feel a bit skeptical about trying SEO, but I would advise you to give it a try. After all, nothing beats a trial but a failure. So, what have you got to lose? What is your website’s PR? Is it, or are they, listed in the major search engines (Google, Yahoo!, MSN)? Have you been trying to achieve this feat for the longest while? It is true that there are times when it may take weeks or even months to get listed, but if your website has been optimized for search engines, they can get listed much quicker.
SEO is a big thing. I have tried it. So have many others. We have seen the results and can testify to the effectiveness of SEO. Try it. You’ll be glad you did!
