REM Web Solutions is pleased to present the latest issue of [email protected], our quarterly online newsletter. The purpose of [email protected] is to help our subscribers maximize the effectiveness of their web site, thus providing them with expert advice and keeping them current on trends in the web world. [email protected] also includes a client case study, which, we feel, is a great way to introduce some of the fantastic clients that we work with to all of our subscribers.
This is the second part of a multi-part article on how to improve your search engine rankings (SEO) using [email protected] and other methods.
Part 2 - Meta-Tags
My last post was about how to identify what are your main keywords to start the process of making your site more easily found. Part 2 of "How to improve your search engine rankings (SEO) using [email protected] and other methods" will be talking about using meta-tags and, more specifcally, how to do it in [email protected]
Now that you have come up with the list of keywords that you want to be found by, insert a list of 20 – 25 top keywords and a 1 – 2 sentence description describing your business into the meta tag module. You can also use the enhanced, page level meta-tag module to do this for each page within your website. Be descriptive about each page so the search engines can direct users to the specific page they are interested in. Contact us if you would like to have it added to your website.
The example below shows what the meta-tag module looks like and how easy it is to update anytime. The description is what Google will typically use to display in its search results. Notice how we have inserted our phone number so people are encouraged to call use without even having to click to our website.
Stay tuned for our next quarterly newsletter where I will start talking about Alt Tags and Title Tags.
