[] How to Increase Organic (Free) Traffic

has posted a new item, 'How to Increase Organic (Free) Traffic'

If you have ever tried to research techniques on how to increase traffic to
your site you may have noticed an underlying theme in most recommendations ?
host a quality website.Why host a quality site? Because a quality site is one
that people want to visit and link to. So what makes a quality site? There are
two versions of quality, one is how visitors judge your site and the second is
how the search engines view your site. Search engines, in an attempt to stay
competitive, try to deliver a quality product to the people that use their
search tools, which means that they want their visitors to find relevant search
results and use their search engine often.So the search engine tips, tricks and
traps popular five years ago do not work anymore, because they do not supply
relevant page results. Search engines are now looking for applicable content,
not only relevant but real content, not pages stuffed with keywords.Here are our
56 tips to improve your website and how search engines view them. 1. Include
relevant content, relevant to your page description and Meta keywords.2. Instead
of changing your URL or redirecting from your old URL to your new URL, follow
Google?s procedure on URL changes to make sure your new site does not get
skipped, or just avoid URL changes if you can.3. Don?t post duplicate content on
your site, so if you quote another page only include a small excerpt and don?t
repeat your own content on multiple pages.4. Avoid flash, even though it looks
cool, flash and animated banners and intros annoy visitors and search engine
bots don?t read them.5. Submit to quality directories.6. Make sure your
robot.text files are not blocking destination URLs that you do not want
blocked.7. Choose your Meta keywords wisely and include them in your content.8.

valuable resource, so people chose your site rather than go straight to your

so on in the middle or your text, irritates readers and bots.16. Write unique

would want to visit ? one that is useful and up?to?date ? that?s it, no magic,
no tricks.Pamela StevensPamela Stevens writes for TopTenREVIEWS.com, a review
site that publishes technology and entertainment reviews. - While flipping
through an old Cookbook of my mothers, I found it interesting to view the terms
used in the candy recipes in the book. Instructions like 'Just before removing
from fire', 'put marshmallows on the end of a hatpin', 'let dry on paraffin
paper', and 'turn into a towel that has been wrung dry in cold water' made me
think how technology has changed our lives in all areas, even candy making. I
guess one change is that few make their own candy anymore. It is too easy to
pick up anything you need at a candy store located in the many malls today or at
the local grocery. And with our fast paced world we don't really have the time
that it takes to make candy. Constant references to "the fire" brought to mind a
picture of a woman in her kitchen with the windows open for ventilation, with
her flower sack print apron on stirring a pot over an open flame of a wood
burning stove. She was happy, humming to herself as she made a special treat for
her family. Since hats for women are not as popular as they once were I doubt
many today would even know what a hatpin looks like much less picture using it
to aid in their candy making process. There was however references to items
still used today, like wax paper, sauce pan and fondant. A lot of the recipes
are still popular candies today. There were several fudge recipes, recipes for
taffy and pralines, coconut candy, different mints and popcorn balls. Perhaps
we should heed the advice that was offered in the book some 70 years ago. This
advice was that home-made candies are purer and more healthful than store bought
candies because they contain no glucose or other harmful ingredients. They did,
however, caution that one should limit the amount of even home-made sweets as
large amounts of sugar are harmful when eaten regularly. The whole book was
toned around healthful eating. At the beginning of the book was a food
classification chart. It listed foods rich in fats, foods rich in starch, food
rich in protein, rich in sugar, rich in organic acids and mineral substances and
high vitality foods. In an increasingly rising population of obese people and
rising rate of diabetes, perhaps we should go back to some of the old timer's
ways, cook more of our own healthful type meals, make our own homemade candy and
limit how much of it we eat on a regular basis. For some free candy recipes

homemade candy is one of her streams of income.
