Hi,
I have been reading a lot of posts trying to work out how to get exposure, but they are all jus 2 in depth for me.....

I have no idea really, I know what meta tags are and thats about it....
Are these still very useful?
What basic suggestions can you give me to get started on exposure....

The site is basically for a market living within 1000km of them and and sells agricultural machinery, products etc

Sorry I know this would have been answered but i couldn't find one...

A link to the appropriate topics will be fine :D

Try http://www.searchengines.com/ to start out. You can also get a lot of info from the search engines. Google has information on their site about what they are looking for. If you have any specific questions drop me a line.

http://www.seo-guy.com/tutorial.html would be a good place to start.

all you really need to keep in mind is: search engines work on text. use the keywords you want to show up, and use them a lot. use them in the page, use them in bold, in h1's, in italics, in the title.

that, and make sure nothing is "too deep." under no circumstances should anything remotely important be more than two clicks from the main page.

There are so many internal factors to deal with ;). Also don't ignore external factors to deal with (Link Popularity, PageRank, Links Ranking). Try http://www.searchenginesworld.com and http://www.webmasterworld.com

I agree with everyone. There are so many factors that the best thing is to research heavily and if you don't understand certain aspects of it, ask us. But, you should be able to find almost any answer to your questions here or the other forums listed.

Meta Tags are still useful for Yahoo.
I think the #1 most important is getting relevant links.

Dmoz drives about 250 search engines and directories so make sure you get listed.

The first ordeer of business to understand what search terms your customers are using. For instance, are they using more autos or cars. Then start speaking like your customer. That will help people find you through the search engines AND it will help convert them into sales when they find you.

I've got a site, been up about 1 year and is not listed in DMOZ. Problem is, I can't remember if I even sent it in as a new site to be added?

Is there any way to check if I already sent in an app?

Will it hurt if I apply more than once?

I donot think that there is any problem in applying more than once to DMOZ. But one should wait for several weeks to apply again.

Actually, that is not a good idea, because everytime you submit your site to the same category, your site gets pushed to the bottom of the list. What you need to do is submit it once, save what category you submitted it to and when you submitted. Then once a month you can check on the progress through the resource-zone.com.

Notice: There has been a change at http://resource-zone.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=22

You can still check one month after submission but then you have to wait six months for an update.

Due to the increasing number of follow-up requests in this forum and the limited editor time available for handling such requests we ask you to wait six months instead of only one before inquiring again about your site. Please understand that we prefer to spend our time on reviewing and adding sites to the directory rather than answering to status requests and that we consider first-time requests more important than follow-up requests. Thanks for your comprehension.
