Hang on Mr. Spider, Every Thread in Your Web is Important
A good web builder always makes sure every thread is strong, and properly in place
The woman who created the video below, shows you how to create a Meta tag for your page. Meta tags and other types of summaries are an important part of your pages. Don't forget to place them in your web.
When building your web online, it can be easy to get impatient, and try to create content as fast as possible. However, every thread in your web is important, so do your best to take care of each one.
The amount of content you have online is extremely important when it comes to building an online presence, and earning money. However, the quality of your content is just as important as the amount, if not more. In this article, I am going to go over the basics of writing a quality web page that Google spiders will gobble up and a rank high. Ranking high with Google and the other search engines is vital to the success of every page on the internet. If their spiders do not like a page, it simply will not be a part of the big World Wide Web.
Pages are like threads in your web. The stronger the thread, the better it can be attached, and hold itself in place on Google, and the other search engines. Strengthening your pages can take time at first, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes like second nature. If you are a baby spider building your first web, do not get discouraged. Take your time.
Type of Content
Google and the other search engine’s spiders are looking for content that has multiple types of media. They want words for the people who like to read, videos for the people who like to watch, and pictures for people who need instant gratification. If you do not know how to make a video, or have a library of images, do not worry. There are plenty of sharing sites where you can find media tidbits to add to your pages. Some of my favorites are YouTube, everystockphoto.com, pixabay, and sxc.hu. Make sure that you cite them properly.
To put it simply, pick one, and stick with it. It is not so important to do this with article platforms like Hubpages, but if you are building a website or blog, you want to stay on the same topics as much as possible. This is so the search engine spiders know what type of content they are looking at, and how to rank it accordingly. Your Subject should be able to be broken down into five or more words that you can place on your pages several times without making it difficult to read. For example, my keywords for this page, would be: spider, thread, important, content, page, web, building, search engine, your web.
I could possibly list more, but the point is, those words will help the search engine spiders find my page. Therefore, I want at least one of them in the title, every paragraph, heading, and a few of the links. Once my page is finished, I will also choose five of the most important keywords, and place them in my tags, and my summary.
Try to keep your pages easy to read. Break up your page into small paragraphs, because it will help your readers keep track of what they are reading. In addition, if you do not know how to build a Meta tag, the search engines will often choose a small paragraph to list in the description of your page.
Play with your editor, and learn it’s tools. Use headings that contain keywords to break up subjects. Search engine spiders love to use headings to rank your page. To them it is like looking at a delicious menu. Your readers will appreciate an organized page too.
Always go back and re-read your page to look for grammatical errors. I personally use MS Word to edit my pages, using spellcheck, and grammar check, but always slip through. It can be difficult to edit your own work, because you know what you mean to say, and it can be easy to miss small mistakes. Give it some time, and come back before you re-read.
I have found many times that I have published articles or pages with errors even after carefully checking them with Word, re-reading, editing and publishing. I love that HubPages allows you to edit after you have already published your work. This is not the case with some of the other paying article sites. I have a few Published articles with grammatical errors I will never be able to fix. It is very embarrassing.
Tags and Summaries
If you have your own website or blog, learn to create a Meta tag that contains your best five keywords, and place it in your HTML. I will try to find a YouTube video for this page on the subject of building a Meta tag, because it is very important. Meta tags are used by Google spiders to create the summary under your link on the search engine listings.
Blogging and article platforms often have tools to help you create a summary, and choose your keywords or “tags”. HubPages has a feature that allows you to easily add a summary and tags your page in it’s editor.
Links are tricky, and very necessary. Search engine spiders find your pages via your links, so you have to build them in a way that the spiders like. They do not want too many outgoing, but they don’t want too few. Two or three in text is fairly safe, and the rest need to be in a list. No more than ten per page that point away from your site is best whenever possible.
You want your outgoing links to link to quality content, but you do not want them to take people away from your pages. The spiders will want one of them to contain a keyword, but be careful not to send them to a competitor’s page.
Most importantly, you want backlinks. If you have more than one page, connect them. If you have more than one blog or website, connect them. Submit your websites to the search engines, and directories. Join forums and put a URL in your signature. DO NOT SPAM! Search engine spiders, and people hate spam. It will not help you. I will write a hub on the subject of linking without spamming later.
Sometimes it can take a few days to build a quality thread that Google spiders will like, but if you take the time to make sure your pages are strong, and full of delicious content, the search engine spiders will quickly invite others to come look at your page. Before you know it, your pages will be at the top of the menu. This means you can begin to monetize your pages to bring in some money for your efforts. After all, every spider builds his web to catch his prey, and all of us spiders like dollar bills.
Please feel free to comment and ask questions. I will try to answer you as quickly as possible. :)
