Search Engines 2

Speaking of Yahoo and Google, these are pretty much the only search engines you really need to be thinking about pleasing. There are others, obviously, but if you rank highly on these two then the rest will take care of themselves. Don't make it complicated. You don't have to pay anyone to list your site on 500 directories or search sites. That's a waste of time. You will be amazed at how many of the other search engines know about your site shortly after you show up on Yahoo and Google. That's because the other sites pretty much rent Yahoo and Google's search info.

Keep your site clean and uncluttered, keep it simple, use metadata descriptions and keywords for your pages (at least for your home page), write honest natural text, don't try to fool the search engines. Know their rules and play by their rules. That's my advice.

Is there anything else you can do to help get your site higher on the search engine horizon? Oh, yes. To be sure.
