A: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is both a science and an art ensuring that a website appears higher on a search engine results page for relevant search terms. This is achieved by altering a number of factors both on and off the page to take advantage of the way that a search engine works. Ineedhits offers a range of SEO services in our optimization section.

Keyword Analysis is the process of finding the most effective keywords/phrases and the most popular and suitable variations of those phrases for your website. Our SEO Specialists can provide you with a Keyword Analysis for your website. Click here to find out more!

Top

Q: What is Code Optimization?

Ineedhits’ Code Optimization is an easy solution, performed by our SEO Specialists, to ensure your code contains the all important meta tags, but no errors. Click here to find out more!

Top

Q: What is a Search Readiness Report?


A: The Search Readiness Report offers an initial site assessment by our professional SEO Specialists to see if your site is search engine ready. It includes an overall search readiness score, recommended changes, explanations and tips. Click here to find out more!

Top

Q: What do you mean by term “search engine ready”?


A: Search engine ready website code is the code that has no errors and contains optimized title and meta tags, and therefore it is ready to be indexed in search engines and enjoy good rankings.

Top

Q: What are meta tags?


A: Meta tags are bits of text placed within the HTML code, but that are not displayed on the website. Search engines use these tags for the sole purpose of indexing and cataloging your website. The meta tags are always found between the <Head> and </Head> tags.

If you would like assistance in creating meta tags for your website, our Code Optimization service is a perfect solution. Click here to find out more!

Top

Q: Do I need to review my title tag?


A: When your website is loaded onto a customer's browser or a search engine's spider, the title tag is the first piece of information used to catalogue (index) your site. Because your title is VERY important in the search engine indexing and ranking process, you need to make your title as descriptive as possible.

Top

Q: What are ALT tags and do I need to use them?


A: ALT tags are alternative text that can be displayed instead of an image if a visitor of your website cannot see the images. You should use ALT tags especially if your website contains lots of photos or graphic-image maps at the top of your home page. The reason for this is that some search engines will give take this alternative text into account when they rank your website.

Generally, ALT tags look like following:

<img src="/images/ineedhits.gif" alt="ineedhits.com : Professional Search Engine Marketing Company">

Top

Q: How can I make my website more search engine friendly?


A: Try to avoid using large amounts of multimedia on your website. This includes using movies, Flash development, JavaScript or visual basic scripting (forms).

Frame pages and redirections can also hinder search engine spiders from crawling through your website. One way to get around this if you feel you need to have frames is to basically code a normal page and place it within <noframes> tags. This will be picked up by the search engine spider as it will jump over your <frameset>, and then proceed to index whatever information is within the <noframes> tags.

Redirections are a big no-no for search engines. Many will penalize, or not index your page at all, if you have redirections on your page. The reason for this is that many people try to trick the search engines by optimizing a page for specific keywords, but then redirect people to something completely different.

You can get an initial assessment of your website by our professional SEO Specialists to see if your site is search engine ready. Simply order our Search Readiness Report.

Top

Q: Can dynamic Web pages be indexed?


A: Search engine spiders cannot naturally crawl dynamic pages. Therefore, if you need these pages to be listed in search engines, they need to be submitted individually.

You can use our Easy Submit service to submit your dynamic pages.

Top

Q: What is search engine spamming?


A: Search engine spamming involves using different methods to deceive search engine spiders to achieve higher ranking. The most common search engine techniques are doorway pages, hidden text, keyword stuffing, etc. If you use any of these techniques your page will be penalized and removed from the search engine index.

Top

Q: How can I make the best use of ineedhits’ optimization services?


A: To achieve the best results from ineedhits’ optimization services you should follow instructions and recommendations outlined in the reports that you will receive from us.

One of the common mistakes is not uploading the optimized code, so that the service cannot take the effect. If you are not sure about what you need to do after we have completed services for you, you can always talk to one of our friendly customer care representatives by clicking on the Live Chat button located at the top right corner of this page.

Top

Q: Is Easy Submit a one time charge or a monthly charge?


A: When you place an order for Easy Submit you will be charged monthly for each URL you sent to us and the services will be completed for each particular URL.

Top

Q: Is Easy Submit a “worldwide” submission service?


A: All of our submission services are aimed at a worldwide promotional level. We submit to all the major search engines including Google, AllTheWeb, Jayde, ScrubTheWeb, Abacho, Aeiwi, ExactSeek, Mirago, Search It, Sympatico, Web Trawler and many more.

Top

Q: Which 300 search engines do you submit to?


A: To view a complete list of the search engines that we submit your website to with our Easy Submit service please click here.

Top

Q: I submitted my website using Easy Submit and then changed its content. Do I need to submit again?


A: Currently none of the major search engines instantly index pages but it is still best to make any alterations prior to submitting. However, we recommend that if you have to make alterations, do them no later than 2 weeks after submitting, just to be on the safe side!

Top

Q: How long will it take before my website is indexed by the search engines?


A: After we have submitted your website to the search engines and directories it will take between one day and eight weeks for your website to be added to their indexes, depending on the search engine. Some smaller search engines will take only a few days to index your page. However, most of the other larger search engines will take several weeks. Such a delay between the date of submission and the date of indexing is due to the extremely high number of submissions (sometimes tens of thousands) that the most popular engines receive each day.

Please be advised that we only submit your website to the search engines and cannot guarantee that they will include your website in their indexes. If you want to ensure guaranteed inclusion of your website into search engine indexes, we recommend our Paid Inclusion programs such as G-Boost for guaranteed Google inclusion or Yahoo! Search Submit for inclusion in the Yahoo! search index. 

Top

Q: How often should I resubmit my website?


A: We recommend resubmitting your website whenever the page content has been updated, so you might want to consider repeating a submission service monthly. You can do this by ordering our Easy Submit or Premium Submit services.

.Top

Q: What is the difference between a search engine and a directory?


A: The fundamental difference between search engines and directories is that search engines utilize spiders/crawlers to gather information about websites (e.g. Google), whereas directories are usually human edited and require a human to input this information during the submission process (e.g. Complete Online Directory).

Top

Q: What is Paid Inclusion?


A: Paid Inclusion is a submission service where you pay a fee to a search engine and then that search engine guarantees that your website will be included in its index. Paid Inclusion programs will also ensure that your website is indexed very fast and crawled on regular basis. For example, Yahoo! Search Submit will provide you with a 4 business day index inclusion and weekly page refresh.

Top

Q: Do you submit to Yahoo!?


A: Our Premium Submit submission service submits your Web page to Yahoo! via free submission.

If you would like guaranteed inclusion into the Yahoo! index then you have the option of using our Yahoo! Search Submit paid inclusion service.
