of your website is essential to get traffic to your website.
A one time submission is included in your initial web design
package. We have hired a company to work with us
engines are basically a automated list of millions of websites.
They are organized into categories. When someone does a
search on the web for a keyword the search engine will give them a
list of websites that contain the word you are looking for, and if
at all possible you want to be on the first page of that
list. Your website must be submitted to the search engines
before you are added to their lists. We will submit your
site to over 300 different search engines as part of your
initial web design package. Yahoo, Excite, Google,
Altavista are just a few of the search engines.
meta tag is a list of keywords that are used by the search
engine to find your website. You will not see the meta tags
because they are embedded into the html of your page (html is the
web language that your page is written in). List every word
that you can think of that relates in any way to your product or
banner exchange is an excellent way to drive traffic to your
website. Generally the sites that you exchange with have
similar products or fit into the same category as your website,
such as country, primitive, crafts, etc. When someone clicks
on your banner from another site that person is usually already
interested in the kind of products that you offer, so that helps
with the traffic and hopefully generates sales. We will set
up banner exchanges with sites that we think will compliment your
products and any other sites that you would like to exchange
with. We will set up the first 15 free, any additional links
will be subject to additional fees, see maintenance
page for more details.
promoting your website is your responsibility. Include
your url in everything you send out, from advertisements, listing
your site on free for all links, signing guest books on other
websites, a tag on all of the products you sell, on the bottom of
every email that you send, writing an article or submitting a tip
to a magazine and anything else you can think of. You need
to get your website out in from of as many people as
possible. Some forms of promotion you will have to pay for,
others are free - use your imagination and creativity. For more
information visit http://www.selfpromotion.com.
your site is craft related getting listed in a craft mall is a
good idea. If a visitor comes to your site through a
craft mall you know they are already interested in the kind of
product that you have, therefore they should stay longer to look
at your product line. When a Craft Mall advertises in a
magazine like Country Market Place that brings them a lot of
traffic and that will benefit you, even if you were not part of
the printed ad. We are involved in a reciprocal link program
with some craft malls that you will be listed on.
