Search Engine Basics: The Meta Tag
Now, I know what you are thinking; "surely we don't need to worry about Meta tags, as most search engines ignore them" and for the most part you would be right. The importance of Meta tags has diminished so considerably over the past couple of years, that I fully expect this to be the last article that I will write discussing their optimization. That's not to say that they are already a dead issue, but in the next 6-12 months their importance will be virtually extinguished.

Search Engines vs. Database-Driven Websites - Optimizing PHP

Elevating PageRank and Choosing a Keyword Focus
Dear Ross, I'm still not too clear on this whole PageRank thing that Google does. From what I can gather, the incoming links have no weight in the PageRank, only links leaving my site and going to other sites (so competitors can't lower your PageRank by linking to you with low-ranked sites). So, all I have to do is find all the highly ranked pages out there, and link to them? Or do they have to be in the same general category as my site? What's to stop me from creating several sites at several different domains, each under a slightly different yet overlapping category, and linking to the top PageRanked sites (to give my sites high PageRanks), then linking each of my sites together to get even higher PageRanks?

How do You Optimize a Web Site that Uses Frames and Server-Side-Includes?
Dear Jim, "When creating things like a text menu with all the main links at the bottom of each page, does it create a problem for the spiders if you use server side includes? Can the spider find the links in that include page? I have a lot of stuff like the menu that are on every page and would like to put it into an SSI page to simplify maintenance."

Emerging Methods for Effective Search Engine Ranking
Search Engine traffic has always been and continues to be one of the best ways to drive qualified traffic to a web site --- it presents information about goods and services when the interest level is high and it can be acted on immediately. Up till now opt-in e-mail marketing has been an effective complement to search engine ranking campaigns; but the never-ending deluge of Spam is rapidly ruining the effectiveness of opt-in e-mail and helping to add luster to the value and cost-effectiveness of search engine traffic.

Search Engine Robots - How They Work, What They Do (Part II)
Why Isn't My Website In The Search Engine? If your site isn't found in the search engines, it is probably because the robots couldn't deal with it. It could be something as simple as not being able to find the site, or it may be more complicated issues involving the robot's not being able to crawl the site or figure out what your pages are all about.

Google Trauma: Dan Thies Rescues Reader's Site
Hi Dan: So here is the Google problem. My website located at http://www.2linc.com was being reindexed by Google about twice a week. It then stopped being reindexed and has since reverted to an older cache of the site. When I resubmit the website to Google they index the site and then the cache becomes correct. After a few days Google's cache of my website reverts back to the old one again. Any ideas what is happening?

Search Engine Positioning: 3 Key Principles
It's not hard to find good information on search engine positioning... the hard part is telling the good information apart from the bad. Some of it is old, some of it is wrong, and a lot of it is just self-serving propaganda for someone's product or service.

Inspecting Your Web Site for Spam
Spam is an overused word. Describing everything from processed luncheon foodstuffs to the flood of advertising Email we all receive each day, the simple, four-letter word is as widely used as many other deceptively descriptive four-letter words are. Suffice it to say that SPAM is not counted amongst the most honorable words in the English language. The IT world has forced the English language to evolve very quickly as old words are applied against new technologies and ideas and thus, the word "Spam" has become synonymous with words such as "junk" and "waste". In the search engine optimization field, the word Spam is used to describe illegal techniques used to try to fool search engine spiders. This section will outline a few of the more frequent Spam techniques used by webmasters or unscrupulous SEO practitioners. Check your websites for any incidents of Spam and do your best to get rid of them as they could seriously damage your search engine rankings.
