Do you have to make changes to our site?

While many of the changes made to your site are done behind the scenes in the source code, it may be necessary to make certain minor changes to your site's copy or layout. In most cases, these changes are minimal.

 

Will you need to access our web server?

For some of the services we will need access to your web server in order to update pages. We do our best to keep you informed every time we do an upload or make a change. It is vital that anyone else who may be making changes to your site stays current with the optimized pages we provide.

 

My website did not get accepted last time I submitted to the search engines... why?

Search Engine listings are not guaranteed to everyone who posts a website to the Internet. Search engines are for-profit businesses and have the right to refuse to list any site for virtually any reason.

WebDialogue specialize in getting sites listed on Search Engines. We ensure all bases are covered and all necessary elements are present before submitting the finalized site to the search engines or directories.

 

How do WebDialogue choose the best keywords?

The first step in our SEO campaign is to develop your Keyword Profile. We will use a combination of experience and software programs to generate a list of the most effective and well-searched keywords in your industry. We then work together to refine this list and compile the list of keywords and phrases that will be most beneficial to your product or services.

 

You know your business and we know ours. We know how important it is to work together to generate the most effective Keyword Profile possible.

 

Why is it important to submit the site to search engines?

Various search engines like Google, Yahoo!, MSN, Ask Jeeves, Altavista and Teoma add their own spice. These give you the best resultant links with the content that you are looking for.

Web sites desire to be listed in popular search engines because that is how most people access web sites. People like to search for information on the web at what is known as a search engine. Sites that appear on the first page of a search are said to be in the top 10. Clicking on a hyperlink causes the found web page to appear in the searchers web browser.

 

Thus, webmasters often highly desire that their sites appear in the top 10 in a search engine search. This is because searchers are not very likely to look over more than one page of search results.

 

How do you do the submissions?

We have the experts and SEO professionals who will manfully submit your website to search engines and web directories. We are against using the automated Submission programs, we DO NOT use software as many search engines consider such automated submissions as SPAM and they might blacklist the site forever.

 

What are search engine crawlers and spiders?

Search engine crawlers or spiders are programs that browse through the Internet, look for pages, index the pages according to subject matter and usability and further rank them in comparison to other similar pages. These crawlers work on algorithms programmed by software engineers at the search engine company. The act of a search engine crawler traversing cyber space and browsing pages is called spidering.

Spiders or Search Engine Crawlers are programs or pieces of software that visit Websites and read their pages, and grab content and other information from sites to add it to the search engine index.

 

How much time does it take to get a website "indexed" on the search engines?

Every Search Engine has its own criteria, but in general, most search engines takes between 2-8 weeks to index a new website.

 

Can you guarantee a number #1 position in the search engines?

Nobody can guarantee a number #1 position or specific ranking for your site for a given keyword phrase in the organic search engine results.
There are simply too many factors beyond anyone's control - the search engines changing their ranking algorithms, efforts made by competitors, and new sites being added to the Web.


What's the difference between directories and search engines submission?

A search engine, such as Yahoo! or Google, is an online tool that helps users of the World Wide Web find the sites and information they're looking for. Most search engines use automated programs (sometimes called spiders) to look for relevant information based on keywords entered by the user, and search not only web sites' content but also their web addresses, number of pages, and links.

A search directory, such as Yahoo! Directory, is a catalog of web sites organized by category to allow users to easily browse for the information they need. Unlike search engines, which locate and display relevant information based on a defined formula using an automated software program, search directories are organized by real people who discover new sites and relevant information by exploring the Web themselves and reviewing email submissions.

 

Both search engines and directories can help drive customers to your web site, and neither guarantees that your site will be included.

 

They are two different search services available to the Web community; although they are often mistakenly confused. Search engines have indices that are built up by robots or crawlers; whereas Web directories build up their indices through human editors. Many search engines and directories contain both a computer-generated index and a human generated index, and are referred to as hybrids.

Google, Inktomi, AltaVista, AlltheWeb and the like are all forms of search engines. These search engines write programs known as robots, crawlers and/or spiders that have the following functions:
(1) to locate Web pages,
(2) to read the contents of the Web pages
and (3) report its findings back to the search engine's indices or databases.
Many search engines update their index either on a bi-monthly or monthly basis. When Web searchers use a search engine to locate Web sites that are relevant to the keyword search, they are searching the search engine's index. A search engine with a larger and more up-to-date index is a better representation of the information available in the Web.

 

Search Engines and Directories both allow you to run searches for web sites, but the results will likely be different due to the method they use to build their database of web sites.


Will I have to redo my entire website to make it search engine optimized?

This is quite a hard question, especially for website owners who have spent significant money on creating a graphically appealing and multimedia based website. Although a user is likely to appreciate this more, the search engine looks for content and coding in plain readable HTML.
Using common coding languages like JavaScript can add lots of SEO unfriendly code before relevant keywords can actually show up for the search engine to index. Moreover, imbedding important content in graphics and videos is also risky as most of the crawlers don’t read these formats.

 

Although a very snazzy website may need some toning down to make it SEO friendly, there are several practices that can alter an existing website without doing any damage to the visual quality of it. WebDialogue can help you bridge the often-wide gap between good SEO websites and user-friendly websites.

 

How does the Search Engine find websites?

There are two ways a search engine can find a website to add to its database. The first and most direct method is to accept submissions from website designers and optimizers. Most search engines have a "submits your URL" section inviting submissions from Internet users.

The second, and least obvious method of finding websites is to send a "spider" to follow each and every link on, off, and through a website. New URLs encountered by the spider will be added to the database. In this way, some search engines will grow very rapidly.

 

What are the most popular search engines?

The most popular search engine by far is Google. Two other very popular ones are Yahoo and MSN.

 

Are all search engines same and equal?

Though the basic characteristic of all search engines remains the same, each is unique. Algorithms, robots may cause difference in the way a search engine works. From the user point of view, they are different because of the speed with which a search engine gets the result, the layout, the way a sponsored link is displayed and its placement on the page.
