The Internet is littered with thousands of directories and yet there still people who create new ones... like me here on Snap! Websites. Well... I like the idea of a central repository of directories that I could use and thought that it would be nice to share them with you.

So... I talked about SEO quite a few times and you know that it is very important for your website. The one main reason that your Snap! Website Google Rank grows is because of what is called Back Links. Back Links are standard links1

  • 1. A standard link is defined in HTML code with the Anchor tag. For instance, to link to ...

A question that I quite often get from newbies is: how can I know that my Snap! Blogger site is getting there?

The following are several points that I wanted to bring to your attention and that are very easy to check1. Each one of these should be a goal, although you may want to tweak the list to your own personal taste.

Hype Marketing, Hyper Facebook Traffic versus SEO and your Snap! Website

I think that if you are interested in Blogging to talk about yourself, your dog, your awesome cooking, then you are certainly not affected by all the Internet Marketing Hype trends! On the other hand, if your end goal is to make money with your blog, you probably read all those sales letters each one telling you that the previous won't work because no one uses that technique anymore.

Blogging has been around for more than 10 years and the same people still make money and new bloggers are getting there every day.

The difference between the hype and a good sane approach is quite simple...

Watching the progress of your Snap! Websites: 1st page, position 5, 3 entries on Google...

As you move forward with your blog or website, you want to add content with your keywords. This will make Google index your pages with that keyword1.

My blog talks about Snap! Websites as well as Snap! Blogger Lite, Snap! Blogger Pro and Snap! Business. Those are our 3 products and the name of this website so kind of like the name of my blog.

Having decided that Snap! by itself or Website by itself would not cut it very well on a Google search, I combined both. After about two weeks posting on my blog, there are the results...

  • 1. If you have products, make sure to mentions several products in each post. If you are selling brands (Nike, Xerox, Coca Cola, etc.) then mention the brand names all the time.

Not too long ago (June 21, 2010), an article came out talking about Kadanuumuu. According to scientists, Kadanuumuu would be a great grand father of Lucy, one of our ancestors. This gave me the idea of calling my blog here Kadanuumuu blog blog.

Why? Because Kadanuumuu means ...

SEO with RSS and Links on your Snap! Website

Alexis Wilke's picture

Last week I talked about RSS feeds, explaining how that Internet technology works and the main purpose for you to broadcast your RSS feed information.

Here I will talk about another aspect of your RSS feed to strengthen your SEO1. Remember that all Snap! Websites generate an RSS feed, even the free trial.

When you write an article, you should include one or two links in your teaser (the teaser is the part that gets broadcast via your RSS feed for people to read... or rather, to tease people in clicking on your RSS links and get them to read your blog on and on and on...)

  • 1. Remember that all the acronyms in my posts are defined. Hover the mouse over words underlined like SEO and see the definition appear in a tooltip.

What is RSS and why do I want it on my websites?

Alexis Wilke's picture

Quite often, when I talk to people, they have no clue of what RSS is, how it works and what good it can do for them. Put simply:

RSS is a technology used by website owners to stay in touch with their audience

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. This Internet technology creates syndicated content from your posts that many in your audience can follow using tools such as Outlook, Thunderbird, Chrome, FireFox or Internet Explorer.
