I assume that the end result is to increase sales and build contacts.
Thanks for the info.
Also, if you want to increase your or your clients rankings, you might want to keep these five things in mind.
Five Ways You Can Achieve A
Stronger Google Search Showing
1. Give them a reason to find you.
- High-quality content, rich in information valuable to your audience
- Social signals at the page and domain levels, such as sociable widgets for Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.
- Minimal ads, if any (Your sites needs to be free of third-party ads!)
2. Give them a way to find you.
- Search terms your audience will use to find you
- Correct spelling, especially of potential search words (remember to run a spell check using your browser tools or text app!)
- Text links instead of images to display important names, content or links
- Descriptive titles for images and videos (i.e., not CIMG6627.jpg, but bear_posing_on_rug.jpg)
- Links that work
________________________________________________________________________ 3. Keep it clean and tidy.
- Clear hierarchy organizing your site pages logically
- Site map, which is automatically generated when you publish your Yola site
- At least one text link referring to each page
- Overall links kept to a useful number
- No duplicate content or near-duplicate content
__________________________________________________________________________ 4. Show integrity.
- No search-gaming practices expressly aimed at upping your search engine results (e.g., automated Google queries, sneaky redirects, or hidden text or links)
- No “doorway” pages created just for search engines
- No badware (e.g., for phishing or installing viruses)
- Affiliate program content only if it adds value with original, unique, relevant content
- A generally legit site that elicits a “yes” answer to the question: “Would I trust this site with a health issue or my credit card
__________________________________________________________________________5. Avoid bad influences.
- No reciprocal link schemes, or “link farms,” designed to influence site ranking
- No links to spammers or “bad neighborhoods” on the web
- No search-result services or software promising to pump up your rankings
