10 Basic Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Techniques

There are 10 basic search engine optimization / SEO techniques you can use to improve your blog/site ranking.

1. Meta Tags.
Meta tags is always comes first. It's really important. Meta tags are simple lines of code at the top of your web page programming that tell search engines about your page. Include the title tag, keywords tag, description tag, and robots tag on each page.

2. Create and update your sitemap.
Developing a site map is a simple way of giving search engines the information they need to crawl your entire blog or website. There are plenty of free software packages on the web that can help you generate a sitemap. Once you create a sitemap, submit it to the big three : Google, Yahoo, and MSN.

3. Submit your blogs/website to search engine directories.
It's always a good idea to let large search engine directories know that you're out there. Submit your website URL to directories like Google, Yahoo, and DMOZ.

4. Place keywords in your page content.
Search engines scan your website and web pages for keywords. Shoot for a keyword density of between two and eight percent. Google likes your page to be at the lower end of this scale and Yahoo at the upper end.

5. Ensure that all navigation is in HTML.
All too often, navigational items are in the form of java script. Even though navigation technically still works in this format, it's not optimized. Create your navigation in HTML to enhance internal links throughout your website.

6. Make sure that your website code is clean.
Keep in mind when optimizing a web page crawlers are basically only looking at your source code. When programming your web pages,having W3C compliant code can make all the difference. Run your code through a W3C validator before promoting.

7. Build links to your website.
Backlinks is the key. Consider building a link exchange program or create one-way links to your site using articles or forum posts. All major search engines value the importance of your website based on how many others websites are linking to it.

8. Check that all images include ALT text.
Your image's alt text is spidered by search engines. If you're not including your keywords in alt text, you're missing out on a huge opportunity for improved search engine result placements. Label all of your images properly.

9. Use Flash content sparingly.
Content generated through java script or flash is a big no-no. Some webmasters like to use flash because of the presentation. If you must, use it sparingly, but only after your site has been properly optimized with basic search engine optimization in mind.

10. Learn the basics.
Learning to optimize your website for search engines takes time and patience. Start by applying basic search engine optimization principles. If you're new to website optimization, or even a well seasoned veteran, begin by prioritizing which pages are most important to you and go from there. Soon you'll find yourself moving up the rankings.

Health Info : Facial Paralysis

Do you know the meaning of "Facial Paralysis"? or have you ever heard about this words 'facial paralysis'? Maybe you haven't. That is because there aren't so many information about this disease. I just found this great site www.facialparalysisinstitute.com that give me a lot of information about facial paralysis.

Facial Paralysis is a condition where a person feels there is something that prevents them to move their face muscles thus limited the movement of their face like having difficulty in speaking such as difficult to spell some words. The number one cause of facial paralysis in the U.S is Bell’s Palsy, and the other causes are trauma, tumours, infection, salivary gland inflammation, congenital cause like Moebius syndrome and so forth. Recent research have shown that Bell’s palsy occurs when a virus (herpes simplex virus, HSV) gets reactivated in the bone behind the ear (temporal bone.) When the nerve gets reactivated and swollen, it ends up causing the nerve to essentially “shut down”.

The surgical treatment of facial paralysis is extremely challenging. Many factors will influence the management of patients with paralysis. Surgical treatment must be tailored to each patient. Every patient will have different concerns and issues. Treatment is based on the following: Etiology of paralysis, Degree of paralysis, Duration of paralysis and the patient’s age. The most important treatment objective for individuals with facial paralysis is prevention of unwanted eye complications, restoration and reconstruction of facial movement, restoration of a dynamic smile, and improvement of facial aesthetics and symmetry.

Visit the site www.facialparalysisinstitute.com for more information including all info about Cause and Treatment of Facial Paralysis, Bell's Palsy, Facelift Surgery, Post Operative Care, and Case Studies.
