types of websites
Types of Websites
  • Static or HTML - web pages that are not changed before being displayed in a web browser
  • Dynamic – when accessed a program generates instructions to call up and construct the dynamic pages, usually created from a database
dynamic websites and search engines
Dynamic Websites and Search Engines
  • Not all Search Engines can index dynamic sites. Ways to help:
    • Use static URLs to reference dynamic content
    • Link to dynamic URLs from static URL content, ie. develop a static HTML site map, link to other high quality sites or even better have them link to you.
    • Pay for inclusion - AltaVista, Ask Jeeves/TEOMA, FAST, and Inktomi
how search engines rank websites
How Search Engines Rank Websites

Through algorithms (a set of rules):

  • Keyword frequency and location
  • Incoming links from relevant quality sites
  • URL, webpage title, meta tags
  • Quality content that gives genuine value
  • Properly working website without errors
search engine placement tips
Search Engine Placement Tips
  • Pick targeted key words based upon consumer search patterns
  • Position keywords in HTML title tag, copy headlines, high up on the page
  • Relevant copy – search engines look for words NOT graphics
  • ALWAYS have an HTML sitemap
  • Don’t frame linked websites
tips continued
Tips Continued
  • Build high quality links, especially incoming, even if you have to pay for them
  • DON’T use automated search engine submission software – hand submit once and let the spiders find you
  • Be patient – it takes a while to develop natural placement sometime 5-6 months
  • Don't obsess over your ranking

pay per click
Pay Per Click
  • Every major search engine with significant traffic accepts paid listings
  • They allow you to ‘bid’ on certain keywords which is called "pay-per-click" (PPC) or a "cost-per-click" (CPC)
    • Overture – Yahoo, MSN, AllTheWeb, AltaVista
    • Google’s AdWords – AOL, AskJeeves, Netscape, Teoma
banner ads
Banner Ads
  • Usually priced by Impression (CRM) Although they don't measure the effectiveness of a branding campaign, they do measure how many visitors were exposed to it
    • The typical click-through-rate is something under 1 percent, and click-through rates significantly higher than that are very rare
    • Think of it as Brand Exposure – like a billboard
    • What websites does your target market visit??
e mail marketing vs spam
E-mail Marketing vs. SPAM
  • E-mail is still the best way to reach a mass online audience of current or potential customers.
  • The question that remains unanswered is when is it overstepping the bounds to become SPAM??
