Hi Giambasi,

Have a look at www.webmasterworld.com or http://forums.seochat.com for lots of discussions on search engines and affiliate programs.

hey thank you very much!

Those sites seem to be very interesting!

I have this site: www.minutebooking.com and I am trying to get people on it, but it's kinda hard.

I have some partners for whom I make booking, but in order to get the comission I need to bring clicks on the site.

Thank you very much again!
If you have any other ideas please feel free to tell them to me.

Or give me your yahoo messenger nick and we can talk.

bye !!!:)

Hey giambasi,

Just spend some time reading through those threads.. you will find lots (and I mean LOTS) to digest there! For starters, you may want to consider ditching the frameset approach and making all pages bookmarkable instead - it is much harder to optimise the way you have it.

Good luck with it all.

Cheers,
Peter

Do you have meta tags on your pages? Google has a technology called "spiders" that, after searching through their own lists, search through the meta tags in websites' scripts. Put in any relevant topics that people who would go to your site would want to find, and a variety of capitalisations- sometimes it's case sensitive. That way your site will pop up on google's searches. Also, you can register your site with search engines like yahoo- the more people who click on your website, the higher up it will go on the lists.

Hmm, sorry to disagree steph - although meta tags are important for some search engines - unfortunately Google doesn't pay any attention to them (apart from occassionaly using the description tag as a description). Things google does pay attention to though are the title tag, headings on the page and any mentions of the text on the page.. That coupled with how many QUALITY links you have from highly ranked websites, you have pretty much got it covered. Yahoo and AOL use Google results (as do many other search engines), although you can submit your site to get in the Yahoo directory, which is generally seen as a quality link.

I don't think having had more people click on your website will increase your ranking in any other search engine apart from alexa.com (which combines google results with traffic rankings and will list you higher in their directory if you have had more visitors) and a few really minor ones maybe.

There is a lot to this subject and you will find hundreds of thousands of posts on the topic at webmasterworld and forums.seochat.com

Cheers,
Peter
