How to Create Search Engine Friendly Web Pages?

With thousands and thousands of web pages being published daily it’s no wonder that you cannot find your site or pages listed on the major search engines. Search Engines love content and want to index your pages, but if you do certain things they will not index your site or pages at all.

  1. Step

    Open page you want to edit.

  2. Step

    Make sure you have a meta description , it should look like:
    <meta name=”description” content=”add some content here”>

  3. Step

    Make sure you have some keywords that closely reflect the contents of the page.
    <meta name=”keywords” content=”add, some, words”>

  4. Step

    Make sure to add a tag for search robots commands:
    <meta name=”robots” content=”index, follow”>
    see: for standard commands and situations for using.

  5. Step

    Make sure your robots.txt file is not blocking search robots.

    See for more information.

  6. Step

    Make sure that any JavaScript used within the page will display the full URL of any other pages it’s linking to.

  7. Step

    Make sure all images use the “ALT” tag description for the image.

  8. Step

    Make sure that all pages linked within the site are using the full URL for the link, some search engines do not like relative links ( ../../nextpage.asp ), use absolute links ( ), so the search engine can index that page.

  9. Step

    Save page and upload to server.

Tips & Warnings
Search engines have millions of pages before and after yours to index. They will not spend a lot of time trying to decipher and special characters or codes used. They will just move onto the next one in line.
manually submit the main page of your site to each of the major search engines.
manually submit your site to as many industry related directories as possible.
Do Not Use “Flash” as your front page of the site. Small flash sections are OK, but make sure there is plenty of text and content on the page. Search engines do not read inside flash
Do Not COPY content from another page on your site, or a similar page from within the same industry.
Do Not use JavaScript for link management pages as search engines will not try and read this script.
Do not try and fool the search engines. This can get your site blacklisted
