Finding The Right Keywords To Drive Traffic to Your Site

As the Web continues to grow, users (including Canadians) are looking online for information, goods and services in greater numbers than ever before. Research says that anywhere from 50 to 85 percent of users find Web pages through search engines. Therefore you really need to optimize your site for search engines.

There are a number of things you can do to optimize it (see Sue Studios' article, Improving Search Engine Placements with Content). This article will deal with keywords – something that confuses many of us.

Keywords are crucial because it's the keywords that bring traffic to your site when users type them into a search box. There are a number of things to consider when choosing the keywords that will be the most effective for you and your business.

Tip Of The Month

Search Engine Tools - continued from last issue

 

Number of Indexed Pages

Go to just about any search engine and type site:www.yourdomain.com. The search engine will then tell you how many of your pages it has indexed.

   
 

Monitor Your Position in Google

No need to waste time clicking through hundreds of Google search results looking for your site. This tool allows you to enter a keyword and a domain name, and it searches Google to see where your domain is positioned. Go to http://www.cleverstat.com/google-monitor-query.htm to download the setup file. Then just install.

   
 

See How Important Sites Are

The Google Toolbar is an indispensable tool. One of the things it can tell you is the "importance" of every site you visit (in Google's eyes at least). You've probably heard a bit about PageRank or PR. PR is Google's measure of the importance of a site. Basically, the higher your PR, the higher your ranking. This tool gives you a snapshot of the PR of every site you visit. Go to http://toolbar.google.com.

   
 

Monitor What Sites are Linking to Yours

Google News Alerts and Google Web Alerts will tell you who's linking to your site. Simply set up an alert to be notified when Google finds www.yourdomain.com.
