#Making Full Use Of The Keywords Meta Tag On Your Affiliate Marketing Websites
I visit quite a lot of websites for my research into what are the best ‘Tags’ for my own websites, and I usually have a good browse. Time after time I can’t help but notice quite a lot of those websites with great content will not get the rank they should, and all because they are not search engine friendly enough.
Now that’s ok if the owners of these websites don’t mind having their website ranked on pages in the 20’s, 30’s, and beyond, but if they want ranked on the first or at least the second, third or fourth page by the search engines then they better read and heed the advice I’m giving in this article and take action because if they don’t then they might as well stop what they’re doing and not create any sites at all for all the good it will do them.
I don’t apologize for being blunt with you folks but your site can be the prettiest thing on the internet, but its going nowhere if the search engines can’t find it, and you know the main reason those other search engines can’t find your sites. Three words – keywords meta tag.
People searching the Internet benefit by having their search results include websites with more up-to-date information about products, services and content; fewer dead links on the visited websites; more search results from websites that are maintained on a regular basis and better feedback from inquiries sent to the website by those people who are searching.
Even though Google and other search engines do not use the keywords meta tag, there are a great many that still do. Those search engines believe that the keywords meta tag is a great location to include words that you want indexed where those same words are not included with your content.
Three examples for using the keywords meta tag are:
- To include synonyms of words that are not included in the content of your page. People search on many variations of words and phrases. Sometimes it is hard to include all of the different variations of those words in the content of your page without making your page sound like a keywords page.
- To place emphasis on certain words. It is not always easy to place your major keywords at the top of your page or in a <h1> tag. Your major keywords might not be introduced until the middle of your page. Using the keywords meta tag, you can add these keywords to inform the search engines that these words are important.
- Another use for the keywords meta tag is to add words from different languages. A multi-language site with one language as its default page might want to add words from other languages to attract people speaking languages that are different than the language of the default page.
Remember two important rules when using this tag:
When emphasizing keywords, do not place the same keyword more than two times in the keywords meta tag. This could be considered keyword spamming and can reduce your ranking value. Also, do not place irrelevant keywords in your meta tag. Using irrelevant keywords could get your site banned from many search engines.
Google’s new search engine page ranking algorithm allows their search engine to rank search results higher for websites where the owners or promoters of those websites have a history of performing actions or events defined as activity.
The goal of any search engine ranking system is to rank websites higher in organic search results where there are real active people supporting those websites. Websites will rank higher in the search engines results page (SERP) when the ranking is higher.
The main point to remember with search engines is that people searching the Internet benefit by having their search results include websites with more up-to-date information about products, services and content; fewer dead links on the visited websites; more search results from websites that are maintained on a regular basis and better feedback from inquiries sent to the website by those people who are searching.
