Search Engine Optimization, Spiders & Creepy Crawlers


Search engine optimization is a science that people will pay well for. Without doubt more money is being forked out for pay per click. There is also an increased awareness of search engine optimization in the mainstream communications industry.

People today believe so many things about SEO rankings. Some get so frustrated that it would be easy for them to believe that search engine rankings are conjured up by some genie rising up out of a technological bottle.

Search engine rankings, over the long haul are the result of technology and upgraded website content. You see content is not only key, it is critical; and that now includes images.

Search engines are now so much better at finding the information you are searching for. They are more accurate and sophisticated in performing their tasks. That is great news for you. Simply because the information you are searching for comes to you quicker and is more targeted.

Unique content, fresh content is how search engines know what is on a particular site. Links coming in and going out of the site are another clue. When considering search engine ranking, link popularity carries notable influence.

Web designers must bear some degree of the burden when it comes to owners feeling shortchanged because of low search engine rankings. Designers demand a pretty penny for their labor. And owners pay dearly.

Owners want more bang for their buck. A website that costs its owner in the tens of thousands is naturally expected to do exceptionally well in the rankings. The truth of the matter is some of them do not. Some do very poorly.

There is certain content that hinders the search engine spiders from properly crawling a site. Designers should know what this type of content is and avoid it like the plague; especially when the owner is footing a hefty design bill.

A breathtaking website chuck full of bells and whistles that does everything but talk back to you is not a guaranteed candidate for high search engine rankings. At the end of the day, the search engine spiders must be allowed to crawl the site.

Webmasters must be very careful when updating their sites. They should insist that they are not disturbed when adding content to the site. Its so easy to mistakenly upload an older site if you are distracted. That can result in the removal of the so called magnets that have been placed in strategic positions to draw search engine spiders.

The really expensive websites are engineered on a test bed. During live tests, search engine spiders are intended by the website code not to index the site.

Search engine crawlers always obey that request. After the website goes live, if that request not to crawl the site is inadvertently activated the search engine spiders will obey. The site will not be indexed and the rankings will drop.

Nowadays the expensive websites are monitored consistently. Lights and sirens go off when changes are made. They also alert you if a problem has occurred after content has been uploaded.
