Interested in getting your website in the top 10? You are not alone!
The world wide web is a great way to gain exposure in whatever you do. Having a website gives you the ability to have publicity and to be seen by people from all over the world.
Just having a website does not get you instant recognition. It is earned by strategically marketing your business and website. Remember, by putting up a website you are immediately entering yourself into a competition. The World Wide Web has become so saturated with websites, it's nearly impossible to be noticed… unless you have a plan.
The easiest way to be found on the web is to be listed in the search engines, such as Google or Yahoo. You can easily do this by paying to be seen by using Google Adwords or Yahoo Marketing. This can be effective, but expensive.
Ultimately, you want to have your website to show up naturally on the front page of the search engines. Follow these 8 simple steps towards optimizing your website and you will see a positive difference in your website ranking.
1. Comprise a list of search terms you want people to find your site with. For starters, this should be 3-5 word search strings. i.e. McDowell Mountain Ranch Real Estate or Toledo Organic Dry Cleaners. Something that is specific to your business or hobby.
2. Load your website with original content. Take the time to write the information in your own words. Search engines will not give you credit for someone else's work.
3. Add the key words from item 1 to your content on several different pages of your website. For example, it is better to have 500 pages with your key words listed once than to have 1 page with your keywords 500 times.
4. Know your target market. Write content that will interest them and bring them back for more.
5. Add fresh content daily or as often as possible. Ideas to keep your site fresh include blogging, writing articles, interviewing people, and adding polls or RSS feeds.
6. Keep your site for an extended period of time. There are many sites that come and go on the world wide web. The longer your site is around, the higher the search engines will rank you.
7. Drive people to your website by sending out flyers, sending out mailers, emails, writing articles, blogging, linking to other sites and gaining as much exposure as possible.
8. Submit your site to the search engines on a monthly basis. There are many search engine submission websites. Some are free and others charge a fee. Google "search engine submissions" to find one you like. Either way, you must submit to the search engines or your site will not be seen.
As your site ages and gets more information, you will see a higher ranking for your website. This does not happen overnight, but by consistently adding information, you will create a website that provides value to the end user. And ultimately, that is what the search engines are looking for… Providing good information that the end user wants.
To see an example of a relatively young site, 9 months old, that is getting great recognition - visit www.MMRTrailTalk.com. It is loaded with information that the end users love. The owner has added information on a regular basis and before long, it was loaded with useful information that the consumer loves.
Website are fun to own, work on and benefit from. However, they can take a substantial amount of time. Have a strategy and work your strategy. You will see the best results and have the most satisfaction with your website. Enjoy!

To begin with, it is most significant to determine the right keywords for the subject you are writing about. A keyword is a main subject that would be the focus and theme of the entire marketing article. When using keywords in this regard, be reminded that keywords can be made up of a single word, a phrase, group of words or different sets of words that are put together. Keywords are important because that would be how search engines would identify, index and rank articles.

Notice that the listing consists of several or numerous listings.

In general, the more frequent a keyword appears in the online site, the more likely any search engine would allot a high search engine ranking for that keyword.
The term keyword prominence is not widely known and practiced but it is one of the most needed. It refers to the way prominent keywords are strategically used inside the online site. As a recommendation, experts advise article marketers to put significant keywords within, near or at the beginning of the online page, or at the first sentence, title or within what is referred to as the meta tag.
The term refers to the proximity or closeness between keywords. With this regard, it is advisable that keywords be closer and more identical or synonymous with each other.

My own first experience with article distribution was that distributing one article alone increased my main sites PR rank from 0 to 2 within 6 weeks online, and I nearly forgot to mention: a high ranking on many search engines for one of our main keywords. So this is worth all the initial time spent in joining all the article directories by signing in, activating your account, adding a pen-name and sending in your first article.
For this procedure I recommend using an Article Submitter. You just fill in your name, address, phone number, etc. one time while you set up the software and then it automatically fills in your details each and every time when you apply for your author-account at a new directory. You only have to select the correct country manually, but that's all you have to do. The rest is just "click". Then you have to look for the article-directory's confirmati
on e-mail. After confirmation you are able to log in to your new account, add a pen-name and you are done. Now you are ready to send in your articles.
With an Article Submitter all you have to do is inserting your articles once and then the rest is just "clicking" and selecting the correct category. That's it. Although your "first run" may take some extra time, your "second run" will go much faster. It now depends on your own speed in "clicking" and selecting the according category but submitting to one directory should now be done within one minute. If you are faster and reach 2 per minute -> fine! :-)
As you see, article distribution is not too complicated and is very inexpensive. I only recommend investing in an Article Submitter. If you do not fear the initial work then you will profit from article distribution already after a view days, because the article directories are getting spidered by the search engines very often and they may index YOUR new article maybe already within 1-3 days!
So all you have to do is to start writing your first article. If you say now: "I can't write" than I am sure that you are thinking the wrong way. Change your attitude. I am sure YOU CAN WRITE! Do not expect to write a "perfect" article for the first time. It may take some time and some articles until you find your own stile and everything is getting smoother and smoother. So I recommend: START WRITING!
That's all! Give yourself a chance and you will see that it is easier to write than you have been thinking of.
If you need assistance in writing, search for advice in the search engines. There are many good articles out there that can help you. So just START WRITING and the rest will follow!
Tell the world what you have to say and people will listen. Be natural. Take it easy.
Nobody has to write or be perfect. Even a machine is not perfect, so there is no need for real perfection. Improve your stile, improve your writing, and finally improve your habits. That's all I recommend. START WRITING NOW. It's easier than you believe!
Good luck and much fun with article writing and article distribution. You will profit widely from it.
