Ever since businesses have discovered the importance of websites and their place in the world of commerce everyone wants their site to gain top rankings in the search engines. However, most are not successful in getting top rankings. Here, are some tips to help you get closer to the top.

Content is king

Search engines prefer websites that are useful for users and provide quality "relevant" information. Quality content also means, other webmasters will be more willing to giving you back links if they find your website of good quality.

Page linking

Link the different pages of your website to one another. This serves as a guide for search engine spiders. Text links add to the relevancy of your web page, so make use of them. Creating a site map is a very beneficial step, because it can have all the links to the different pages.

Keywords are important

Directory Submissions

There are literally hundreds of thousands of directories on the Internet where you can submit your website. Back links from reputed submission directories will contribute to increasing the page rank of your site.

Keep it Simple Stupid

They don’t add any real value to your website and also slow down the page loads for your potential customers. The last thing you want is to confuse, overwhelm and frustrate your visitors to the point of leaving your site.

Web Hosting Guide:



Figuring out which web hosting solution is right for you can often times be a difficult task. Whether you are doing an online business, providing important information or sharing views online on a common interest, you need a reliable web hosting service that will allow online visitors to browse through your site effortlessly. Platform stability and server uptime are imperative to allow your website to be loaded, browsed and updated in in a timely manner.

With the changing trend of technology, web hosts are also changing. If you are running an e-commerce website, then you need increased security and a means to which you can manage your web content efficiently. If your web hosting service is not reliable then you will miss out on serious revenues and prospective clients due to limited server resources, downtime and/or lethargic support. As with most things in life you get what you pay for, the internet is littered with fly-by-night hosting companies that oversell their servers resources cramming as many customers as they can to increase their profits, what you get is a slow performing and typically very unsecured server accompanied by non-existent support...this is why they can offer such cheap hosting! Does "NOT" sound great right!? Stay away from them!

Once you have determined and identified what web hosting services you require for your online website, it is time to pick your packages and web hosting features you that need. You can find below some of the most important aspects of web hosting:

Disk Space

You need to determine how much space your website will need. When we talk about disk space, we are actually speaking of the amount of storage assigned to you by the web hosting provider. This will vary from site-to-site, that more content you generate that more space you will need.

Bandwidth

The bandwidth is the amount of traffic (visitors) that are allowed to access and leave your website. This again will vary widely depending on your type of site and its effectiveness online. Another important consideration is that if your site has video or lots of graphics/pictures you will require higher storage area and greater bandwidth to serve these to you audience.

Support, Security, Guaranteed uptime and Backups

Security and backups are two very important aspects that you need to consider. You should always choose a web hosting service with reliable email and/or ticketing support. In case you are running an ecommerce website then security is one aspect that you just cannot discard. Your web hosting service provider should be such that they can monitor things round the clock and ensure no unwanted intruder can hack into your site and compromise your customers personal data and ultimately lead to your websites downtime. Running your own website can be a very rewarding and profitable endeavor, you just need to make sure you start off with a reputable and stable hosting service that will take care of providing you a stable platform.

Cheap Web Hosting? Are They Legit? What Is Overselling?:


The internet has its share of scammers and the hosting world is certainly not immune to their tricks. Their are quite a few companies that are offering very cheap hosting packages with unrealistic space and bandwidth, excluding the ones that may simply outright take your cash and run we will talk about the semi legit companies. How are they able to sell so much for so little? Under-supporting & Overselling! Overselling is a widespread problem in the hosting industry. Attempting to offer ridiculously large often "unlimited" amounts of disk space and bandwidth. What they are doing is banking on the fact that the majority of their customers will not use all of what they have paid for and have gone ahead and resold the assumed unused resources to another client...doing the same to them and so on.

The fact that these cheap hosts overload 500+ customers on a single machine is rather bad for your sites performance and of course your sites security. Furthermore these hosting environments are commonplace for spammers to use to send their mass emails and other shady practices, the fact that everyone on that shared server will be sharing the same ip address means that your sites email traffic will be associated with the spammers email traffic. The short of it is that your email addresses will get blacklisted by many down stream providers alongside the spammers.

Thus, to sum things up, overselling is a misleading and shady practice that ultimately hurts you and your website/business. Slow poor performing servers/websites, potential insecure hacker havens along with your email traffic being blacklisted. To make matters worse when you go to seek support to resolve these issues you typically will find you have no real "support" per say.

A good host will NEVER oversell their servers, work very hard to keep the servers patched and updated and will always be there to support any issues you may have. As with everything in life you get what you pay for and nothing comes for free. Do your research. -SecurDynamics


Featured customer - (Valley Cleaning Services'):

ValleyCleaningServices'


Valley Cleaning Services' operates a commercial & residential cleaning business in the NoVa (Northern Virginia, Winchester) area. In business since 2005 they have grown by leaps and bounds each year by offering affordable cleaning services with out reducing the quality of service.
They have a fantastic management and service personnel on staff that has passed extensive background checks. As most of us have been effected by this economy they have had to adapt their business model and offerings to better answer their customers needs and finances. One way they have done this is by waiving all contracts on residential services and by offering a budget economy package with most homes starting at only $50 per visit. This prevents customers from getting locked into long term contracts in an unstable market as well as keeping the cost of service to a minimum to better serve the needs of struggling working class family's.
