We Can't Live Without The Spiders



If your web pages aren't getting spidered, you're missing out. As I mentioned in a previous post, it's always a good idea to have the search engines find you instead of manually submitting to them. The concept is simply: always have your new site linked somewhere to another site that's already been spidered or is frequently spidered by the search engines.

Site maps, links that don't run too deep and are right off the top page are very helpful. Avoid flash if possible, unless your site is already so popular that people just go to it by name without searching for you. Very few people are going to Google to find amazon.com or ebay.com, unless they are looking for something "related" to those sites such as "amazon marketing" or "ebay business".

I am looking for a good site map making program so if you know of one, drop me a note. I don't like the one I currently have. It's clumsy at best. The following are some resources you can check out regarding the search engine spiders. The more familiar you become with them, the more you can set up your site for traffic and more sales, which go hand-in-hand:

web site traffic always allows me to drive lots of traffic to my web sites. Having tested and tried literally hundreds of traffic generation methods, I have not found anything that delivers more consistent, quality people to my web sites who buy. I rake in an average of $345. a day simply by plugging five of my favorite affiliate programs into this excellent traffic source and then simply making sure my traffic never expires. Let's face it, everyone is interested in web site traffic" and I know if the blog readers here just try this one, they will be very pleased. Enjoyed your post Mario.

Good morning Mario, I find it quite refreshing to occasionally find a post such as yours with a similar topic to my own interests. It somehow ads to ones little list of lifes experiences.

I seem to have a soft spot for blogs related to creating traffic and /or sites that have a central theme around creating traffic type items. I guess this comes from being a webmaster as well.

Once again Mario, thank you, hope you don't mind if I visit again next month. :-)

Hi, Mario, I was surfing and searching for some info on home refinance leads and noticed your site. Your this post We Can't Live Without The Spiders though sounded interesting so I took a look. It was not relevant to my home refinance leads but I am glad to stop by and view your interesting comments. Keep up the fantastic blogging.
