What Search Engines Want

In my expereince on the worldwide web, I have learned two things.

1. There is a dude that programs the algo-s
2. I'm not him.

However, I have taken away a few valuable observations as to how each of the three major search engines (google - yahoo - msn) rank pages differently. And I will break it down like Hammer now:

Google:
  • Loves links - just make sure they're not reciprocal.
  • Loves title tags
  • Actually... Loves all around optimization of a singular page.
  • Definet sandbox.
Yahoo:
  • Up until July, these cats loved an optimized page. Now they only half love it.
  • Love anchor text - provided it is varied. Love it, love it love. it.
  • Still like an optimized page (good keyword density, good title tag that sort of thing)
  • Don't love pages with no links. In fact. They aren't very big fans.
  • Has the least amount of problems with dynamic pages.
  • Possible sandbox.
MSN:
  • The spammer's dream.
  • LOVE an optimized site, meta tags, h1 tags, all that old-school stuff.
  • Enjoy links, but would rather return pages with the search term in the head.
  • Seems to index the quickest of all three.
  • NO sandbox.

Hi Nice Blog .You should only proceed with a ad campaign if you are positive your site is the best it can be, otherwise you may just be pouring money away. There are thousands of companies on the internet who offer to provide you with ad campaigns, many of which never deliver, do not let any of these points put you off advertising in seo school.
