how to view a websites source codeThere are a few things to keep in mind when thinking about SEO:

  • Don’t bank on SEO to be the key driver for your business.
  • You can’t control Google, but you can control what goes on your site.

Know Thy Source Code!

If you look at the source code on any web page, you’ll see something like this. Source code isn’t scary. It’s simply the code that web browsers “read” to figure out how to display a webpage’s contents. Google and other search engines read your source code to find out what your site is about.

To view source code, you go to a web page and do one of the following (depending on your browser):

Title Tag

titletagexampleThe title tag is the most important element on any web page. If you do a ‘Control + U’ on any page, you’ll see the title tag in source code. It’s bounded by title tags.

You want to make sure you only have one title tag per page. What you put in the title tag is basically how Google decides what’s going to be in search engine results.

Google has been experimenting with changing this a little bit, but for most of the time, they repeat exactly what’s in your title tag into the search engine web page, so it’s really important that you craft your title tag so that it reads well and people will click on the link. A lot of people will tell you to put your most important keywords into this tag, but be careful about that. You don’t want to be obsessed with keywords. You want it to come naturally. Describe what the page is about and write it like you’re a copywriter. One thing to keep in mind is: how would you write this if you were going to write it as an advertisement in a brochure? The more naturally, the better chance people will click on it.

Meta Description

The next thing we have in any web page is the meta description, which looks like this:

Where can i download free software from to make a pdf flip catalogue, that isnt just a trial version?

Personal Use software programs and then have purchased
the fee program or if it is free program had made contributions
to thier authors so they can keep it up, such as Spybot .
If the trail period is long enough, usually for me 30 days just
doesn't do it, I figure out that this is a program that I want
to purchase and keep or is was just a passing fancy that
I really don't use to justify purchasing it or they are better
programs, or may be it conflicts with my existing programs, or whatever.
So I think it is a good marketing tool  both for the author developer and
for the would be user.
