BE FOUND – Google Wisdom

You want people to be able to find your web site quickly and easily. Here are tips to help Search Engines like Google find you.

1) Google Yourself with the search terms your customers, clients or prospect would use.  If you can’t find your site, they won’t be able to either.

2) Choose appropriate, memorable domain names: choose web addresses/domain names that are easy to remember and describes YOU.

3)  Learn about SEOSearch Engine Optimization – the tools and tricks that make it easier for big search engines like Google or Yahoo to find you.  Some search engines allow you to submit your site, others find you.  The more sites that link to your site, the higher your ranking with the search engines.

4) Add Meta Tags “description” and “keywords” to your header
The “description” tag is especially important – it appears after your domain name in Google’s search results.  The “keywords” tag helps search engines define what search words will find on your site.

Here’s what the header code looks like:
<head>
<title>Marketing Machismo – Million Dollar Marketing for Shoe String Budgets</title>
<meta http-equiv=”content-type” content=”text/html” />
<meta name=”keywords” content=”shoe string marketing, guerilla marketing, michele moore, happiness habit” />
<meta name=”description” content=”Million dollar marketing for shoe string budgets – Making building your brand, image and marketing fun, easy and inexpensive!” />
</head>

* If you are using a free WordPress blog with a Domain Discover web address /domain name like MarketingMachismo.com, the “keywords” and “description” meta tags are added on the Domain Discover Frame Forwarding page.

View Code: You can view code for any web site by clicking Page in Internet Explorer and choosing View Source.  If you are using FireFox, right click on the page and choose Page Source.  A new window with the code should appear.

Remember the world wide web is a huge place and there are billions of existing sites, links and domain names.

To Verify Your Website and Domain Name – See the Tools section on the left hand side of the WordPress Dashboard  and follow the instructions below:

In your Google Webmaster Tools area, find Verify A Site, highlight the meta tag code and paste it into the code section in the Tools menu like this  and hit save. Then try to verify your domain name from your Google Webmaster Tool menu.

Include A Site Map – Free WordPress blogs automatically have Google sitemaps enabled, but you have to tell your Google Webmaster account to look for them.  On your Google Webmaster dashboard, on the left side click Site Configuration then Sitemaps. Click Submit a sitemap and type in sitemap.xml  and submit it.  See: http://en.support.wordpress.com/sitemaps/
