Web Page Ranking : To make a website successful, you need good page ranking and activity in terms of hits per day. A descent amount of unique visitors is best achieved by either spending hundreds of dollars in advertising or by building free search engine activity with good website content, popularity and ranking. Ranking can be defined in terms of content, popularity and advanced mathematical algorithms.

Page Rank Algorithm : The mathematical algorithms are used to rank the "link content" for websites. These formulas take all the links to third party websites and your domain links to other pages, within the web document, and integrate all their rankings to yield a content link ranking. So if you do link to other websites, its important that the links be higher ranking. You will also get a higher content link ranking if your secondary pages have a rank greater then zero, or each page rank to be as high as possible. You should also keep your link strategy to include less then 100 links per any individual page, so you won't be caught with low rankers.

Sitemaps : There is also a matter of sitemaps, that posesses a quality that is not exactly considered content, but has a powerful impact on acceptance by the search engines, especially Google and Yahoo. You should seriously consider including a sitemap page with a sitemap.xml and a urllist.txt that includes the url of every page in your website. The sitemap.xml file is monitored by Google and the urllist.txt is picked up by Yahoo to help index your website. The sitemap files don't affect your ranking but it will speed up being indexed by these major search engines. They will also alow your website to move up in rank much easier.

Keyword Ranking : Search engines also consider keywords, description and titles in the metatags of a document and how they correlate to the page content. When you write the content for your website you should keep in mind the keywords you want to display in your metatags. When you create your keywords, you should keep in mind your page content. The keywords should match the content to achieve better focus. The title should include your front keywords and the description should also contain your most important keywords. This coordination between your metatags and page content are the key factors search engines use for finding websites that match any keyword search. Then to list the best matching websites, the search engines will pick the highest ranking sites in terms of popularity, content ranking and link ranking. With popularity being a most important parameter, search engines use, for determining which websites are the best. We decided to focus this article on building popularity, with linking strategies that don't break search engine rules, like FFA pages or link farming. Our secondary focus includes optimizing keywords and metatags for optimum search activity.

To improve your metatag content ranking you should know exactly what the search engines display for each page. The fastest way of seeing what the engines are displaying, is to input "", in any search engine. This will generate a screen with all your html pages with their Title and Description. You will see first hand what is actually listed. If you don't like what is displayed you can simply make changes to your metatags. A good title should include the name of the document and a brief summary. The brief summary should include your best or front keywords.

Keyword Research: To create keywords, we run searches through Google's keyword stats tool. The stats only convey Google search activity, but you have to divide the numbers by 12, to get your monthly figures. The keyword tool is quite useful, for determining highly searched keywords. Just put in your keyword and yearly stats, for the keyword and any similiar keywords will be generated.

Google Keyword Tool  or  Google Terms & Stats

With this list of similiar keywords and stats, you can choose highly targeted and highly searched keywords to display in your metatags. But lets first define the goals of our keyword choosing campaign. We first want keywords that generate the highest traffic with the least amount of competition. With the ultimate goal of being in the top 10 ranking, or being listed on the front page of the keyword search. For our second goal, you have to analyze your website position, according to generated revenues. Whether you sell tangable or intangable items, your focus should be on choosing keywords that are highly targeted, with high activity and lower competition.

Remember the ultimate goal is to get listed on the front page of any keyword search. After you make a list of keywords and similiar keywords, you have to determine what the competition will allow you to achieve in keyword ranking. To get some idea of the competition for keyword positioning, choose any keyword with 50,000 or more monthly searches, through Google's keyword analyzer for example (ex.Javascript). Then run the keyword through Yahoo or Googles search engine. Take any of the displayed websites like (ex. and run a popularity check through:   Link Popularity Checker    You will find that generates about 45,000 link popularity, for each of the major search engines. In fact all the websites displayed on our javascript search maintain 40,000+ link popularity.

It's also important to know what popularity your domain posseses so you can compare to the competing websites. If your website has far less popularity then the displayed websites, you should keep the keyword in your list, but search for other keywords that liye within your relm. Find keywords where the websites, on the front page of a search, approximate your popularity. You will at least have the chance to get a top 10 ranking, or be within the first three pages.

Another way of deciphering how your ranking could end up on the front page or within the first 3 pages of a search is to find keywords with only a few competing websites like 30 or 100 or even 1000.

Linking Strategies to Improve Popularity : Improving popularity is a never ending adventure, but you should allways keep in mind that quality links are the only links worth including to. Those FFA pages and link farms aren't even looked at by search engines. So you won't get any popularity links from them. A popularity link should come from a lagitimate ranking website of 2 or higher. A link from a higher ranking website of 8 or above is worth like 100 popularity links, from any low ranking websites. There is also what I term honor sites like IPL (Internet Public Library) or the "Librarians Internet Index", or educational directories like "Teach Your Children Well" that will give your website a real boost in popularity, if they accept your website link.

Calculate Link Popularity: Example :  If 3 websites are linking to your website and all of these websites have 10 sites that link to them, then your Link Popularity score will be:
33 (3 + 10 + 10 + 10).
With these quality factors in mind here are some linking strategies that will boost your popularity.

High Quality Sites : Run a search on any of your top keywords, from the top 2 pages of listings, try to submit your site to their link pages if they have them.
