    Keypoints

    KirtiBajwa
      I am developing a new web site: http://www.firehealer.com.

      I understand that for this web site to get maximum hits on GOOGLE and other search engines, I need to setup "Header" and "Keypoints"! Being new to DW, I need direction.

      BIG THANKS.

          Google "high ranking web page". There are lots of "experts" out there
          when it comes to optimizing a site. There are also lots of things that
          need to happen in order to get high ranks on any search engine.

          It's my understanding, that if you don't have any backlinks (a site that
          has a link to your site), the chances of getting indexed by a
          spider/robot are slim to none.

          However, none of that is stuff that "Dreamweaver" does. YOU do it...you
          just need to know what/where - but as I recommended, you might want to
          search for the information that will help make you more knowledgeable
          about it.

            You need to have good, semantic, accessible markup.

            You then need to have other people find it worthy/useful enough to link to.

            Keyword meta tags in the header of your page can be useful, but really have
            little to do with your google ranking.

              I think that's stretching it a bit. However, having links from a well-
              spidered page greatly improve your chances of getting indexed. The link
              text helps, too. For an example, <a href=" http://example.com">click here
              </a> isn't as helpful as <a href=" http://example.com">See an example</a>.
