Google does use the TLD type in its regional results, so a .co.uk would do better in the search the uk option, but not on the main web search.

Google uses the IP address and the TLD to determine the location of a site.

Submit your site to Dmoz - its free and powers about 250 directories. It also drives the Google Directory which will give your ranking and traffic a good boost. It can take months to get listed, so the sooner you submit the better. Smaller directories such as http://www.allthebizz.com are useful but...

I would start cheap. Use your current PC as a server, and get ADSL (Broadband) that way you can have a permanent connection. You can get a website up and live using MS Frontpage and IIS (which comes free with Frontpage as an add in ) BT Broadband is about £20 per month, but you'll save on dial up. M...

Hi,

PR is semi -logarithmic so a PR 5 is approx = to 10 PR 4's and a PR 6 to 10 PR 5's etc

There are many other factors such as the context of the page however so its best to focus on high PR links from the right pages.

Hi,

I am looking for articles about Web hosting and domain names to post on my site. Any suggestions, I would include the usual bio etc.

They could always get taken out by the likes of MSN or TimeWarner. That may mean a good profit in 18 - 24 months. Could be trust issues etc.

Why not set the signatures so that way they appear on the page but are not picked up by the SE's.

That way if the content is valuable the reader will follow the link, but not the SE's.

A lot of forums do that e.g Highrankings ( view the cache of a few posts)

Take care to follow the google guidelines e.g links <100 etc

Why not have as many pages as there are permutations of your "snippets" that way you could have large number of extra pages on your site.

Take care that they are not to alike - otherwise it could be spam.

I have had to wait 8 or 9 months before now.

The resource zone is helpful - when I moved URL they changed my listing in less than 24 hours.

Another issue is that Google can take 4 - 6 months to update their Google Directory from Dmoz.

Clare

Real PR gets updated everyday by Google.

Every 4 weeks or so the PR that shows on the Google toolbar updates, and the results between data-centers still dances around.

But the index itself is now under rolling update.

Hi, I run a UK hosting and domain name company. I found the best way is just to build up the number of anchor text links. I am ranked about No 8 on Google UK for the phrase "Domain Name Registration" this was achieved by a listing in Dmoz and a good number of links. ( about 800 > 4/10 ) Best of l...

Post Posted: May 2nd, 2004, 4:16 am

Are you listed in Dmoz? A listing makes a big difference.

Also I have found having a paid listing in Business.com and Yahoo are helpful.

Adding to the smaller directories such as http://www.allthebizz.com will help but less so.

Clare

They use both the domain name and IP address.

If you move hosts between the US and UK, you notice a difference in the type of traffic.

Get a link from a PR 9 site with few out-going links

Or lots of links from 8/10 sites.

It also occured to me that Google may start to charge for inclusion in the Google directory in the same way that ...

This phrase is slighlty out of date now. But it refers to the period in time when Google is updating its 13 data centers with its "new index". Due to the huge amount of data required to be moved around the world, this doesn't happen instantly. Users therefore see results dancing between the old and ...

Hi,

I would decide on your keywords.

Then:

1) build up content using your keywords
2) Use the keywords in your Meta Title
3) Place lots of anchor text links around the web.

This will work, but it takes time to build.

Don'f forget SERPs - Search Engine Results Placement is all relative. If you competitors sites have low PR's and low content, it will be easier to get a higher ranking. If they have higher PR's and good content it will be harder. Try the Phrase "good website names". You will see page from my site at...

I used Mirago for a while, but didn't find it very successful.

Adwords is far and away the best for me.

When did your site go live?

PR is updated on a daily basis, but the Google taskbar only updates every 4 weeks or so.

Clare

Post Posted: April 26th, 2004, 12:19 pm

The best way to submit to Google, is add a link from a site already in the Google index.

I wouldn't bother with a submission service, of any kind ( for Google)

Clare

Hi,

I have a couple of directories.

http://www.allthebizz.com - is a business directory
http://www.accountants-directory.com which as the name suggests is accountancy related.

Both are free.

Clare

Post Posted: April 25th, 2004, 11:21 am

There are 13 datacentres spread around the world.

Due to the sheer size of Google's database they can't all be updated instantly, so the new index is loaded one at at time. Which is why during an update PR seems to jump. Your seeing results from different data centres.

March Madness is an usual phrase so there are probably not many sites optimised for that phrase.

But a lot may have a mention of it on them, hence the 2,5m listing on Google.

Clare

Has everyone noticed that the Google Directory listing has disappeared from under each URL.

I suspect we will see a reduction in the value of a Dmoz listing as we go forward.

Clare

Post Posted: April 3rd, 2004, 11:21 am

The less tags the better, they just add to the size of pages.

All you need are Title, Description and keywords tags.

Google only uses the Title and to a far lower degree the description tag.

Clare

Hi,

Add a sitemap with static links to the dynamic content.

That should ensure they get indexed at least.

Clare

Hi,

Its always good to be at the top, but its not everything.

Some sites get more traffic from referals and links than from Search Engines even if they are at the top.

Clare

Hi,

Clare here, I run a Domain name registration service in the UK.

Like the look of this forum, its a bit more "gothic" than most!

Clare

Hi,

My experience is that it only has a very minor effect on rankings.

A disadvantage being that its harder to build a brand around a keyword.
