Search Engine and Website Optimization

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009 9,006 views

SEO is an essential part of website optimization, involving the formatting of a web page so that search engine algorithms score it highly for the relevant keyword.

Each page should be optimized for only one keyword so that the page is listed in as high a position as possible for that keyword.

If you understand how search engines work you will be able to apply your knowledge of SEO to optimize your website and ensure, not only a listing, but a search engine listing worth having. So, exactly how does a search engine such as Google work?

The answer to that is that nobody knows – except some Google employees of course. However, by carrying out certain actions and analyzing the results, it is possible to come to certain conclusions as to what Google are looking for and using that information to your advantage. Keep in mind, however, that the number of variables Google is evaluating is believed to reach three figures, so you will only ever scratch the surface, but we know that some of these are given more weighting than others.

SEO variables come in groups, and your website optimization strategy should take as many of these into account as possible. These groups can be categorized into increasingly narrower sets, the broadest being on-page and off-page optimization. The variables with most weighting are currently believed to be:

1. ON-PAGE WEBSITE OPTIMIZATION

On-page optimization is, as the term suggests, carried out on the web page itself. This can either be on the visible part of the page, or in the underlying source html code. This optimization can be further classified into:

a) The Keywords. Each web page should be optimized for one keyword, and can contain a few sub-keywords for which the page might also be listed. These, however, are less important than they once were in view of Google’s latent semantic indexing (LSI) algorithm. That is another subject! The choice of keyword is important, and there is software available (free and not so free) to help you choose the best keyword for your needs. Do not overuse keywords – instead use lots of related text and synonyms to tell the spiders what your page is about.

b) The Title. This ‘title’ is not visible on the page, but contained within the html ‘Title’ tag prior to the ‘Body’ section of the page html. It should contain the keyword, and is the title that appears at the head of the search engine listing for the page.

c) Meta Tags. In SEO, the Meta tags, again contained prior to the visible ‘body’ section, provide the search engine crawlers or spiders with information about your site. The only tags of use today are:

i. The Description Meta tag. This describes the content of your site and is shown in full or part below the title in your search engine listing. Include your selling point and any toll-free number you might have.
ii. The Keyword Meta tag. Not generally used, but who knows – it costs nothing and does no harm.
iii. The Robots Meta tag should be used to block any page from spiders that you don’t want visited, in case they dilute the overall site relevance. For example, duplicate sales pages. Use it blank even if you are not blocking anything.

d) Headings Page and paragraph headings should be in bold text within H (heading) html tags, H1 for page and H2 for paragraph headings. Use keywords because heading tags stress the importance of the text within them, especially if formatted bold.

e) Navigation Links

i. Your navigation is best if made using keyword anchor text and with a small description of the page linked to just below it.
ii. Try to arrange your html so that the spider sees your body text first, followed by the links that will lead it away from your page. Most importance is placed on the first 100 words and the last paragraph, so don’t let these words be your navigation links.
iii. Pay attention to your on-site linking strategy. There is a formula you can use to maximize the PageRank points for each or any individual page.

2. OFF-PAGE WEBSITE OPTIMIZATION

Off-page optimization is a massive subject, and would require a separate article to even scratch the surface. It includes techniques such as one-way back links, reciprocal linking, article marketing, directory submissions, interlinking your own sites and blogs, use of social bookmarking sites and social networking, Twitter and so on.

These SEO techniques can in many respects be more important than on-page SEO, and it is not uncommon to see a page with no content but adverts listed at position #1 on Google due solely to the number of other web pages linked to it.

SEO is an extensive subject, but you can improve your chances of getting a high listing if you take advantage of what is known. Information is available, some of it genuine and some opinion. Make sure you find the former and avoid the latter in your website optimization strategy.

“Back home in Korea they say I am too innocent looking, so that is why I decided to wear this ear-ring and look a bit more aggressive looking. No, this was not given by my girlfriend or any other girl. I bought this on my own. Anyway, I will have to take it off soon when I go for my compulsory army training (in February). You cannot wear such things in the army.” – Park Sung Hwan (Korea) when asked about his ear-ring

“I woke up this morning with my body aching all over. I was prepared for a three-set final but it turned out to be an easy final. I have proved that the Putra Stadium is a happy hunting ground for me.” – Lee Chong Wei (Malaysia) after retaining his title

“If all goes to plan, I am expected to meet (Lee) Chong Wei in the quarter-finals in the Korea Open. Let’s see how things go but I hope I don’t play as badly as I did against him in the final here.” – Park Sung Hwan (Korea)

“I am told the weather in Korea is extremely cold now..-6 degrees celcius. I hope the weather will not spoil things for me there.” – Datuk Lee Chong Wei (Malaysia)

“Malaysia is very special to me. The Malaysian audience make me feel very at home. I just feel that everybody likes me. I have very fond memories of Malaysia after I won here last year and it is no different now.” – Tine Rasmussen (Denmark) after her 21-17, 15-21, 21-16 win over top seed and world number one Zhou Mi in the women’s final

“We were patient and knew we had to play a patient game to match the Koreans who are known for their speed and attacking game. Now we have faith in ourselves to look forward for more things to come for us after a disappointing 2008.” – Nova Widianto after partnering Liliyana Natsir to win the mixed doubles title

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s Lee Chong Wei kissed the ground and pumped his fist several times in sheer delight at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil here yesterday.

World number one Chong Wei had continued to show his prowess on home ground, playing to the gallery to nail his fifth Malaysian Open title win a thumping 21-14, 21-13 win over South Korean Park Sung-hwan.

The victory in just 39 minutes was the easiest of the lot in his five home Open triumphs. The prize money of US$15,000 was an early ang pow cheer for the Chinese New Year.

“It is never easy to win at the Putra Stadium. The Malaysian players are said to be jinxed here,” said Chong Wei.

Lee Chong Wei - Malaysia Open Champion 2009
Giving thanks: Lee Chong Wei goes down on his knees to celebrate after clinching the winning point. He follows it up by kissing the ground. Then, he walks up to shake hands with Park Sung-hwan.

“And after winning the Malay­sian Open for the second consecutive time in this stadium, I had to kiss the ground on which I stood. But the win was easier than I expected.

“I woke up this morning with pains all over the body. It has not been an easy week for me but I psyched myself up … I did not want to disappoint anyone today.

“It feels great to win the Malaysian Open for the fifth time. If my body is willing, I will be out to set a new record.”

The player who won the most number of eight Malaysian Open men’s singles titles was Wong Peng Soon.

The win for Chong Wei yesterday also showed that he was getting more comfortable with his status as the world number one. He also emerged as a convincing winner of the inaugural Super Series Masters Finals in Kota Kinabalu last month.

“There was so much burden on my shoulders after the Olympics in Beijing (where he won the silver).

“I had to handle the fame that came with the many awards that I received, including the Datukship,” he said.

“I think, that was why I struggled for half a year. It was not easy to shrug off the pressure. Now I feel more confident of myself. I guess, that was why I was so happy to have won the title today even though I had won it four times before.”

Chong Wei’s two main goals this year are to end his title drought in the All-England and to become the first Malaysian champion in the World Championships.

And he is aware that the stumbling block is China’s Lin Dan.

“There is no way out of this. I have to beat Lin Dan if I want to win these titles. I will work hard to achieve these,” he said.

Chong Wei dedicated the win to his coach, Misbun Sidek, who turned up against the doctor’s order to rest.

“He is recovering from lung infection but he still turned up to help me. I admire his dedication in coaching me. This win is certainly for him,” said Chong Wei,

Chong Wei’s next stop is the Korea Open next week and he has a wish: “I hope that I will not get sick there like last year. The temperature there is minus six … I don’t like cold weather.”

For the 25-year-old Sung-hwan, it was the second time that he lost to Chong Wei in the final after 2004.

“He was too good at the front of the net today and I just could do nothing about it,” said a dejected Sung-hwan.

“I may meet Chong Wei again in the quarter-finals of my home tournament next week and I will not play as I did today.”
