Search Engine Visibility FAQ
How does Search Engine Visibility help me optimize my site?
Search Engine Visibility is an Internet-based search engine optimization and submission tool that guides users to optimize their website. Search Engine Visibility shows users how to improve internal and external aspects of their website. Doing this increases the visibility of the website in search engines via the "natural," or unpaid, search results.
Search engines rely on proprietary ranking algorithms and use that technology to look for various elements of the Web page, their organization, page content and how popular the Web page is. The absence of certain attributes, or the over-prevalence of other attributes, can seriously impact your ranking success. Search Engine Visibility shows you which site elements are particularly important to the various engines and helps you position your website for those engines' ranking criteria.
Search Engine Visibility V1 helps you analyze, optimize, and submit your Web pages to key Internet search engines and directories.
Will my website be ranked high in search engines if I use Search Engine Visibility?
Search Engine Visibility does not guarantee search engine listings or higher rankings. Search Engine Visibility also cannot provide any exact timeline for the fruition of your search engine optimization efforts.
Because competition can be fierce, and search engines use proprietary ranking algorithms, there is no guarantee that your URL will attain a high rank with a particular search engine. The ultimate decision lies entirely with the search engine.
But, search engines do reward sites that are optimized, well-composed, and feature unique and/or meaningful content. That's where Search Engine Visibility comes in handy.
You can use Search Engine Visibility's SEO Checklist to identify optimization opportunities in your site content. Optimizing your site significantly improves your chances of achieving higher rankings with the search engines.
Once refined, use Search Engine Visibility's site submission options to submit your site, correct any submission issues, and track number of pages indexed by various search engines.
Can I Pay to Guarantee a Search Engine Listing?
In some cases, yes. A number of search engines support paid-inclusion models for Web content. Paid inclusion generally guarantees a shorter turnaround time for submitted pages and in some cases also provides guaranteed inclusion.
What are keywords and why do I need them?
Search engines use keywords when they include your website in their search results. Keywords can make or break your search engine ranking. Adding keywords to the content of your website can improve its ranking, but overusing them can cause your site to be banned for spamming.
When identifying keywords, select words and phrases in the content of your website that someone is most likely to use when searching for your online business or website.
Each of your Web pages should have keywords that include phrases found throughout the page content, title tag, headings, attributes, and link text. If you have words and phrases that occur often, rearrange the order to keep each tag unique. We don't recommend using the same string of keywords on all of your pages because it could hamper your SEO.
