    seo software

    Years ago about 6 or so, there was an seo software that worked well and it was free. I cant find it or remember the name of it.... Does anyone know of a good seo software that is free or very inexpensive?

    Search Engine Optimization....it's for managing websites and traffic.
    I don't know of a preferred bundle....we have our clients work through some Google specializes we work with. The rules for maintaining high visibility change on an almost weekly basis...so software packages to monitor this are sort of...outdated and can't keep up with it.

    Errr..uhmm.....search engine optimization isn't about broadband speeds. It's designing your website to draw in more search engine indexing, and then competing with other websites as far as rankings in search engine results in the targets that you want to be put up high in. Basically to sum up....when you do a search say...for a real estate attorney in your town.....how do those websites that come up in the results end up having someone in first, second, third, and fourth place. In the center results. Or over on the left side, or over on the right side. There's a minimum of 3 different results fields on Google searches, just as an example. And each of those 3 has a different purpose. Or over ...err..I'm short on time..here's a quick summary

    There's no purpose to a website if nobody can find you!

    ok guess I didn't think of the right thing then.. I was assuming it was some app/toolbar to search for something using google,bing or others.

    No I don't do web stuff, we refer our clients to a design company that has a couple of Google specialists that do this stuff.

    Most good website design companies should be proficient in this stuff by now, check with them. If they don't know about this...I don't know how they are still in business...knowing SEO is key to being a good website design company.

    SEO software is a waste of money. SEO companies acts as if there are big secrets to SEO, and they promote their services in such a fashion. "We can do this and that using our trade secrets."

    The truth is this: there are NO secrets to SEO. It is an ever evolving field because search engines constantly update the algorithms they use and they are getting better at detecting tricks and deceptions that Web coders use to try and get better rankings.

    SEO is actually quite simple. Good site ranking can be established by following some basic principles and a lot of time consuming work creating solid backlinks.

    Here is the best SEO Guide I have ever come across. It explains things in the simplest terms possible.

    The site isn't bad. Some tips
    *Allergies page...change the color of the text, the pink doesn't work well.

    Part of getting ranked on Googles search, especially "Google Places"....is having accurate location information on your website...and verifying it with Google (done over the phone). Fill out that "About Us" section..and get it verified. Getting it verified in Google Places is VERY quick and easy....fill out in the info, submit..and within about 15 seconds Google will call you and give you a PIN that you enter to complete the process. I just did it recently because we moved our office and I needed to change our verified business address with Google.

    Second big section with Google, is the organic free side..which is where you try to get your website filled with good metatags of relevant key words, and those get indexed by search engines. Having your site linked by other sites helps boost this. This is the part which requires frequent maintenance...and like I mentioned before..it's frequently changing. What worked to bounce your site towards the top of the results list last week probably won't work this week.

    Sponsored links are over on the right side...those are ads that you pay Google for, from say 50 cents per click, to 25 bucks per click.

    My site gets hit a lot... The more content it the more it's going to get hit. Advertising through Google's Adsense will help some and other advertising methods. I'm prob getting over 300hits an hour which for a site that doesn't have a lot of activity is pretty good but then again I'd say 90% of the hits are coming from search spiders but ohh well

    The 3 most important SEO factors: title, keywords, description.
    These snowball into content.

    Each page should have a unique title tag.
    Keywords and description should also be used in the <body> content text in your writings. This adds relevance to the page.
    Also, make good use of standard HTML and use a hierarchy of content, i.e. use headings, paragraphs and lists.
    No one has any right to force data on you
    and command you to believe it or else.
    If it is not true for you, it isn't true.
