if i'm not mistaken.. text links dun use ALT tags.. they use TITLE tags. the ones that use ALT are images..

anyway, lots to do in optimization. just how many are honest in doing it is another question.

try not to rasterize your texts in flash... I mean... convert to shape...... just import the font to the library, and leave the texts as they are...

I guess you can make some useless variables including all your contents too... for google detection I mean... hehe... well I'm really talking blindly here, never tried before, and don't really sure whether it works or not... XD

One question, do I need to put my meta description unique for each pages in order to get higher position in Google? Right now the result for my pages are of different titles but the the same description.

META tags don't really affect on Google as much anymore because their engine concentrates more on the quality of your content and the frequency of updates.

The other thing I noticed is also the arrangement or organization of keywords in your Meta, Title, Content flow is important. The search engine reads from Top to Bottom. The effectiveness of your Title could be better by placing Shirtless Male.. in the front before your URL.com then in your content, I think you need either more words of celebrities or shirtless males.

As I said, Google is more content concentrated unlike Yahoo and MSN. The other thing that'll be good for your website is to have it comply with website standards because tableless design is known to help a little in search engine optimization.

I Doubled at what etsuko said as well, if you don't want to get blacklisted from a search engine, please DONOT put hidden keywords, which most of the times you will be identified by the search engines as spam sites.

look up at this very good article to start at how Google works towards their search engine to improve search results :
Webmasters We Love You Too

I would always suggest and recommend for optimum result, is the way you organise your content inside your site, and write up the content so that it's aimed for 'human to read' (make contents of your site for human not for search engine kind of thing)

there are the few reasons why you see now sometimes on blog you never see like
...index.html....12384xsjs2lc9z/1askfdn32.html
but more things like...
...i-am-bored-today.html.....tags/travel/tips-tutorial.html

on the other side, previously by having more link exchange (traffic in-out) to other site is known to some that they can improve themselves in ranking, but beware, make sure that you do not OVERDO by also including links thats not relevant to what your content gives (not in same category), if you have a lot of links, they'll label you as spam site as well (you know, usually pr0n/spam site has lots of useless links rite)

thats some heads up i can give you biggrin.gif. main keyword...make sites for human...not for search engine.

I think what I hope everyone today will do is please please pleaseeeee...

tell your friends that SEO specialists in Malaysia are not all legit.

some actually use programs that help them test keywords, websites and etc..then generate a monthly report for them. they might've paid USD500-2000+ for the software but without proper knowledge of search engines, your friends aren't getting their money worth spending RM500 a month to just apply SEO.

tell your friends that SEO is really open knowledge online for anyone to learn. the only difference is that some people know it better because they read more and have tested it on their own.

if someone makes a guarantee they can get your website in the Top # by few days or a week, ask them HOW they're doing it.

prevention is better than cure so make sure they're not using:

- invisible text
- link farms/buying of links

anyone care to add on? wink.gif

i'll add more of my input as time comes and my rusty brain starts to work,
yep, i'll double on what etsuko said, where i saw a lot of sad cases where big SEO company (msia) has staff that works inside, charging ppl for the services and then quit the company and open one of their own from the knowledge they learnt...

i mean it's really quite sad but somehow i felt that the web is something we learn from each other and improve it, and i'd know people making money from things that we freely share around. well, i wouldn't want to announce the name of who is the person but i felt the same as well, as long you want your site to be improved on the PR, always remember...

design your site...for the user, not for search engine. And of course, make sure your content is relevant for the subject of the site you're doing, don't simple chunk in a bunch of unrelated stuff around and make it look like a spam site just for the sake of getting link in from other site (linkfarm). I guess usually search engine will get attracted to contents which is really 'useful' instead of just pretty. (i had this theory half proven on oneduasan)

and oh yes, on the images, let's say it's one common keyword call 'car key', if your picture literally has a car key, and inside your site's content also 'talks' about car key, you have a very higher chance for the engine to put you higher up on the list despite the filename.

The basics of SEO is optimizing your content.

Therefore, based on your target audience you need to do some research on what keywords or phrases they'd use to find what they're looking for. smile.gif

These keywords or phrases should reside in your content.

However, don't get too carried away because you should be writing for the reader and not the search engine. One's a robot the other is merely human. wink.gif

SEO doesn't work miracle over night. It takes time for your website to get listed and ranked too. What SEO does is organically enhance your website ranking in Search Engine. So don't expect to see rapid results within a days or weeks, but be patient and wait for at least a month.

Well, here is a friendly tool you can use to optimize your website.
Web CEO

It will give you some minor pointer on how you should optimize you web pages.

That's a very important point to remember. SEO is just recreating natural site growth and self promotion in its ideal form. A natural site, however good, takes time to grow. Even if you found a way to get your site to number one overnight, the search engines would ban you for it. It must take time, and if it doesn't take time, then it's not a good method.

They won't ban you just because it became #1 overnight.

I believe the teams of the search engines are smart enough or have implemented systems that will tell if someone has used black hat methods to reach the ranking they're at. So it's not necessarily as scary they see you jumping to #1 and they ban you. smile.gif

There are many other factors that can influence your website ranking such as daily hits, internal link to a higher Page Rank (PR) website and never the less your content.

Unlike Ad Sense, Google won't ban you if you spam or continuesly clicking on your website for hits and page view but if you DO abuse their optimization method or concept such as spamming the keywords or "inteligently" hide your keywords in the webpage background, then i guess your website will be landed in the "Sand Box".
