Increase Search Engine Rankings

In the modern world, internet marketing has become one the most effective mediums open to marketers worldwide. Out of the hundreds of websites, some belonging to competitor products, it is vital that an organization’s website appears on as many search engine results as possible to improve the amount of web traffic it receives. One of the main factors to be taken in to consideration when creating a website is exactly where the website will come up in the search result display or the search engine ranking. If a company’s website does not show in the first display page of results they would have to consider strategies that will increase search engine rankings.

Most search engines use an algorithm to calculate the search engine ranking of a particular website. They also look at the search engine optimization, the popularity of the site as well as how related the content of the website is to the query being made. All these factors affect someone who wishes to increase search engine rankings. The easiest method to increase search engine rankings is to develop a strategy to increase the number of ‘hits’ the website receives. A popular strategy adopted is linking the site with popular websites such as Facebook or Myspace.

Another factor to consider when one wishes to increase search engine rankings is the title bar. A website would achieve better rankings if the title bar mentions keywords such as the company’s name or a brand name, over an ‘untitled’ page. Another method used mainly by smaller companies to increase search engine rankings is to submit the sites URL (Uniform Resource Locator) to as many search engines as possible. This method can be tedious as the process is painstakingly slow if you wish to submit the URL to many search engines. However if you have the money to spend, most search engines if not all are a business, so you can always increase search engine rankings of your website by paying the search engine a submission. Paying submitters also have the advantage of access to information regarding keywords customers entered in order enter the website and other such information which can further help to increase search engine rankings of a site.

However certain website designers have also created several unethical techniques that can be adopted to increase search engine rankings as well. One such method would be to increase the number of keywords per page by adding white text on a white background at the bottom of a web page so that the algorithm would rank the page higher due to the number of times the keywords have been repeated but a web-surfer accessing the site would see the bottom of the page as empty.

However any company which has a corporate website should look for search engine optimizers to help increase the popularity of their website because today e-marketing is very competitive and the only way to stay on top of the game is to increase search engine rankings.
