SEO for iWebsites
To begin with explaining the best way of SEO for iWebsites, I would like to tell you SEO is not a temporary process, but consistent works. It is impossible to get huge traffics after going through optimized processes this tutorial will let you know. You would need to think about what purpose your website has.
1. Add your site to search engines
If you don't notify your site to search engines, nobody can find your site through search engines. First of all, you MUST add your site to Google, Yahoo, and Bing. The most essential search engine is Google, next is yahoo, and bing.com. 90% of traffics coming from search engines would be Google. If your site is only for your local business, you may need to add your site to the most popular local search engine. For my country, South Korea, Naver.com, and Daum.net would be more powerful than Google. But, I would recommend to add to all search engines including local search engines. This job is really simple, but will take a bit of time.
2. Equip your site with essential elements
I think that iWeb was not developed for business uses but personal. The reason why I think of that is iWeb misses super important web elements such as title <title>, header <h1>,<h2>,... and meta tags. Since iWebsites don't have these essential elements, most of the websites built by iWeb are hard to be searched by search engines. On the other hand, blogger or wordpress sites are very friendly with search engines, because they provide these essential web elements which are the top factors to get many traffics. To insert them to your site, I would recommend to go through several processes.
3. Increase Page Rank by several ways
Page Rank is a google service which determines how popular an website is. There are many ways to increase PR of your site. The most important thing is to make back-links as many as possible. To do that, you can advertise your site to portal sites or utilize social networking services such as Facebook, and Twitter. For example, if someone likes or tweet a page of your site through social buttons, it will generate back-links to your site. That's why embedding social plugins is really crucial. Or using forum is also a good way. I recommend to follow these steps below:
4. Monitor and track traffics to your site consistently
As I wrote it before, SEO is not a temporary but long-term works. Both posting quality-contents and notifying them to search engines are very important. After updating your site, I would suggest to take about 10 mins for SEO. Don't forget to update “sitemap.xml” file, then notifying to search engines after publishing new pages. If you don't update sitemap file, search engines will not index newly updated pages.
