Optimize Your Entire Site For The Search Engines
Reader question: I read somewhere that every single page on a Web site should be optimized for the search engines. I do not have the time to optimize my entire database-driven site, but my site still relies on search engine traffic for business. If people do not have the time or the budget, what are the best optimization strategies to implement? What do you consider the minimum number of pages to optimize?

The Past, Present, and Future of Online Directories
Building Blocks of WWW Navigation Years ago, inclusion in the top online directories was a necessity for anyone interested in receiving traffic to their new website. Yahoo, About, Looksmart, and The Open Directory dominated the market by providing the web's most reliable mines of resources. These human edited, hand selected directories of categorized websites seemed as if they would ever be the easiest way to sort and find online information.

Optimizing Online Catalog Copy for the Search Engines
It only makes sense. You have an e-commerce catalog site. You want lots of visitors to come to your site and buy. The best (and most cost-effective) way to do that is with great search engine placement. However, search engines are text machines, and most catalogs don't have a lot of text, so herein lies the problem.

Search Engine Optimization and Dynamic Technologies
A Content Management System is generally defined as software that allows anyone to contribute information to a website via a graphical user interface (GUI). They are usually based on a pre-written template that acts as a platform for each page in the site as those pages are created. From simple CMS systems built on PHP-Nuke to extremely complicated proprietary systems, the use of CMS in commercial websites can present significant challenges to search engine spiders and obviously to search engine optimizers.

The Missing Link To Your SEO Efforts
So here we are at the peak of an industry fluctuating with myths and rumours, with unprofessional sorts attempting to get on the SEO bandwagon, web host companies, web designers, scam artists and the list goes on. To my surprise, I even found an article of mine "SEO Myths & Rumours Exposed" (co written with Ian McAnerin) ripped apart and parts of information contained within some bodge, scam artists attempt at selling SEO secrets for $19.95. Yep, you know the one, send out heaps of spam and hope to sell a poor and ineffective product to those unsuspecting people who think there are some big secrets holding back their website.

Free SEO Software: Shoe String Budget Search Engine Optimization
The Cost of SEO Even more costly than the time performing SEO is the time it takes to learn how to do it correctly. Many people want to sell you things for $10 or $20 which have no intrinsic value. Most of the best SEO tools do not even cost 1 cent.

Google Likes Text Up Top
There has been plenty of speculation that Google likes text closer to the top of a page. The ones who speculate this generally cannot prove the theory without some doubt. It is a tough one after all. Many SEO's have debated this for some time now and with good reason. Google likes text whether it begins at the top or half way down the page; just text and lots of it. I believe, it is more a factor of how you structure the keyword phrases within your text that helps decide the ranking outcome. What if the theory was close, though just not quite the way it is portrayed?
