Internet Marketing and Getting Your Site Noticed - Articles Surfing

You may have created the best Web site in the world, but unfortunately it will not do your home based business any good if no one sees it. Therefore, knowing how to market your site and getting your site noticed is incredibly important to the success of your home based business and to make money online. Obviously, marketing your web site is one of the most important activities you can spend your time on.

Fortunately, getting your site noticed does not have to be expensive so marketing on a tight budget does not prevent you from getting quality exposure.

The first thing you will want to do is pack your Web page full of keywords that people might use when searching for information contained in your site. The more keywords you have, or keyword phrases someone might use, the more often your site will be returned as a result for the person searching. The keywords should appear multiple times each on your web page and need to be context relevant, that is the keywords should be in your page title, article titles, section titles, paragraphs, links, etc. You want to be in the top 5 results posted as often as possible, so continually searching for keywords and keyword phrases and refining your web site will direct more traffic to your online home base business.

Also, once you have packed your page full of useful information and as many keywords as you and your thesaurus can think of, you will want to upload your URL to various search engines like Yahoo, Google, Excite, Alta Vista, and any specialized search engines that focus on your particular business or service. By including more keywords on your web site, when the search engines are searching for sites pertaining to the keywords entered in the search engine, your page will be listed as a higher result than others. This is very important because people generally check the first few web sites results and skip the others if they find the information they were looking. However, make sure the information you provide on your site is useful and you don*t just have a string of keywords to attract people to your page. If you have useful information about a product or service, people will look around. If all you have is a bunch of keywords and nothing that actually pertains to what the individual is looking for, they will leave and never come back. So, be alert to what you are offering potential customers and attentive to the way you bring them to your page.

If you have done all of the above, and are still interested in more traffic, then consider marketing your site on other related or non related sites by banners and the like. This is a way of letting individuals know about your product that might not be aware of it to even search for it. By advertising in this way you are reaching a sector of individuals who want and need your product, but were never aware of it.

There are multiple ways to market and of getting your web site noticed, just make sure you do it in a responsible way. Internet users are fed up with pop up ads, fly-ins, fly-overs, exit pages, spam e-mail and other unsolicited information. For instance, many people now have programs that block pop up ads, which means you are not even marketing. Finally, you don*t want to anger potential customers or have them close off their mind to your product, so be creative when you are marketing, aggressive and always respectful of current and future clients.
