SiteReportCard

Websites need to have an in depth analysis.It is important to keep track of your website's links, keywords used, html codes and page load time. It is useless to go through off-page optimization if your site is un-indexable in search engines. If it contains broken links, this will hamper search engines from crawling all of your pages. Keyphrases and number of keywords are also some of the things to consider when optimizing your website. Search engines also set requirements on the number of the same keywords to place on your website to avoid spamming.If you got erroneous html codes on your page, tendency is ... your site wont be favored by search engines. Here's the link to help you analyze your webpages.

Tools for Keyword Analysis

Aren't we stuck in finding link partners ? This is mainly due to lack of knowledge on keywords and it's symantics and theming of websites. How do we know a particular site is closely related to our site? How do we recognize if it's a direct competitor or not? How do we categorized websites? Is it by theme? or is it by location? Those were some of the problems I kept encountering over and over again while digging up the web for websites worth linking with. Anyway, I just hope the tools listed below will be of great help for all of us.


Ontology finder - It
allows you to find words that Google thinks are related to your keywords by giving you synonymous terms of your keywords to consider for possible keywords.

Google Sets - Helps you find related keywords by creating keyword sets in the same family.

GoogSpy - Helps you in planning Adwords campaign. Great tool that will let you know what terms your competitors are bidding on at Adwords. Just simply enter your targeted keywords and it will then display the domain of your competitors and the terms that they are bidding at Adwords.

Wordnet -
an online lexical reference system whose design is inspired by current psycholinguistic theories of human lexical memory.

Search Combination Tool

I have always wanted to make work faster as possible. From searching of links to checking of backlinks, I want everything automated. Finding of linkpartners is the hardest part of link building. It is where I unwittingly spent most of my time and effort. It could have been easy if relevancy of the sites is the only thing to be considered. How about if those relevant sites aren't really interested in exchanging links? It will just be a waste of time contacting them. Being a good linkpartners searcher, you need to have knowledge of the combination of keywords to use, it's popularity, competitiveness, etc. See? It is really not that easy to search for " quality" link partners.

I don't know if you will find this tool useful but for me it is. Thanks to the webuildpages. At least for now, I don't have to query all those search keyword combinations one at a time. This tool will automatically generate and search all those phrases and keyword combinations in the google, yahoo and msn search engines.

Google Cache

Google allows us to view a snapshot of how each page is being examined as it's bots crawl the web and caches these as a back-up in case the original page is unavailable. The cached content serves as the basis for google in ranking the page of the website. When you click on the cache link, you'll see the date of when google recently cached the page.

If you are promoting your website, make sure it is indexable by search engines. You can also check the google cache manually. On the google search box just type in cache:http://www.domain.com. Why do you have to do it manually when you can do it the easy way? Here it is. Just enter the urls of the pages you wish to check below. In just one click you'll find if all your pages are being spidered by google. If it isn't, you really need to exert more effort in getting your pages into the search engines and that if you really want to increase your site's ranking.

DIRTY TRICKS IN LINKS EXCHANGE

Last year there were some speculations that links exchange has lost its value. Why? It is inevitable that some of the webmasters put some dirty strategies on gaining backlinks by cheating their linkpartners. What are some examples of bad webmasters? They are those who....

1.)
Bury the link to your links page on a single page that takes about five clicks to get to.
2.) Puts your link together with
3,000 outgoing links on the links page.
3.) Promised to link back after you placed them on your site but after you link to them they really wont link back to you.
4.)
Removed your link after trading.
5.) Placed your site on links page that is never indexed.
6.) Allows you to fill-up a link exchange submission form then after you filled and submit it , will ask you for a payment.
7.)
Using a querystring to display pages themed to your web site. For instance, instead of linking you to www.somesite.com/page.asp, they link you to www.somesite.com/page.asp?id=subject - where both display different pages.

Above are just some of the shady tricks i heared from few of the seos. I am not recommending the abovementioned strategies. However, it somehow opens our eyes to the dark side of link exchanges. It may assist link builders and webmasters in speeding up their processess and in
weeding out the none preferred link partners. Just a piece of advice: " be careful to whom you exchanged links with " .


Off-themed Sites Linking to you

Afraid of losing your ranking due to non-related links pointing to you? Calm down and need not to worry. Don't exert some effort or spending money on just asking webmasters to remove your site from theirs. You really cannot stop them from linking to your site. This is one thing that we can no longer control. Google has clearly stated that your ranking won't be affected by factors that are out of your control.

If you want to increase your ranking and be on top of search engines, just focus on
tightening the neighborhood by sending out and receiving links from related websites. Google wont penalize you for what sites link to you but what sites you linked back to.

SEO contest

What's the latest ??? I have read that Steven Rangel's Liberal Forum is announcing a new Search Engine Optimization (SEO) contest. It invites all webmasters, seo experts and bloggers to join the competition through vying for a top position in Google search engine using the made up keyword “Gnikhsub.” This contest is different from all the rest because it combined SEO ( search engine optimization ) and SEM ( Search Engine Marketing ) with political activism. It aims to broaden the knowledge and understanding of tech community on how search engine algorithm works and how to rank for competitive keywords. One thing that makes it different from other seo contests is that it intends to disseminate a unified political message of impeaching President George Bush.

For further information about this contest, try to read this.

GOOGLE SERPS IN DIFFERENT FORMS

Google is the most well-known search engine commonly used by internet searchers. By simply querying particular keywords, this engine will automatically output information relevant to your search. Did you know that you can see google result in different forms? The conventional google SERPS or search engine results pages looks like this. If you would like to see google associated with a position counter or if you would like to customize conventional google look then install CUSTOMIZE GOOGLE and follow instructions. If you are into link building and would like to open multiple links from unique domains in just a single click, GOOGLE ONE-LINER, is the right option for you. Of course to apply single-clicking you must first install mozilla add-ons such as OPENSELECTEDLINKS.

DUPLICATE REMOVERS

How do you remove repeated data? If you do it manually, it might take you time identifying which data are unique and which are not. It is just a simple task but why do we have to allot much of our time for it? If you just would like to take duplicate entries out from the collected data, you can use this DUPLICATE ENTRIES REMOVER. How about if you would like to extract unique sites or domains from your list? Try DUPLICATE DOMAIN REMOVER if it will work for you.
