Flippa.com

When people tell me they just don’t know how to make money online, Flippa is one of the sites I suggest they try to work with. This site vends readymade websites to buyers at auction prices. But the difference between Flippa and many auction areas of other domainer forums is that zero Alexa, zero traffic, zero anything plus content and code gets you in. These stat sets are ones that every domainer had tons of names for.

For $19, the domainer (or man on the street) can vend a website already up. This takes the profit model of the domain name world a bit further. Instead of relying on the domain resale market, autoblog engines can do the work and output the site. The money making potential of a speculative name buy just got that much more possible. The domainer creates their own multiples of opportunity.

The employable resources toward a website for domainers have always been a part of their hosting plan. Hosting companies like Godaddy offer a plethora of webmaster site publishing choices in the “Connection” area. Site templates, HTML code, and open source applications allow even newbie domainers full site design flexibility. Writing the content was all that was needed.

But today content writers in every language are an easily sourced commodity online. Getting original and keyword rich text up is as simple as writing a few emails and selecting a contractor. A little do-it-yourself juice poured directly onto the hot griddle of the hosting account can deliver some piping hot websites. And Flippa allows novices a turn at bat, as well.

For many domainers the market to sell domains feel closed to them. It takes a few successes to get their groove going as market entrepreneurs. What is not made clear to many business individuals looking to get into the domain name industry is that for some domain name sales happen instantly. For others it can take many years. The returns are varied, and there is no guarantee of profit.

Flippa.com changes all that. A quick survey of the site shows what auctions have sold. The other side of the Flippa.com coin is that now name owners can shop for sites that fit the keywords for site names they already have. Instead of chancing content they don’t want or need, webmasters can analyze available site text for purchase. If the Flippa vended website fits the bill, then they can bid their budget.

Flippa allows those with good domaining ideas and good ideas for domain names to follow through on those concepts and take profit from their brainstorms. The world is full of end user business leaders who will have the “vision” to buy the finished product. These are not the same people who will fund its growth or development however.

Flippa.com closes the gap between domain name website end user customer and domain reseller. And just think what kind of traffic your website will get while being “shopped” at Flippa.com. This is a chance for web designers, webmasters, writers and domain name entrepreneurs to showcase their packaged services. As many free markets, a sales history tells the tale.

Flippa.com will remind most domainers that flipping domains may soon be like flipping houses. If you can build it, you can flip it. The synonymous energies between the commodity of commercial real estate and domain markets as properties continue. The energy the individual domainer puts into every site, and the elbow grease researching keywords and SEO, will cap the Flippa.com revenue potential.

There is a free downlaod of the Flippa flipping book inside, as well as offers for discounts on SEO tools like SEMrush and Domainsamurai. Phone verification is needed. Sign up today, and see if your domain gifts can be utilized to the fullest.

Before You Sell That Domain…

Active domainers are watching the auction sales and seeing massive big ticket name sales this week and thinking about putting their Internet names on the block. But the best value estimator data for domain name sales comes from traffic and backlinks and pings from other websites of equal or greater page rank. Assuming a website is of low page rank or remains somewhat undeveloped, any linking activity will benefit the name value.

See the previous post regarding the top websites online in terms of web visitor traffic. These sites, each one of them, is a SEO weapon you can use to promote any website or domain name link. Most of them are open account and free use sites. That’s a free ad on websites of top page rank at which you can put links of your choice on. This list of top websites should be a shopping list of places to cement web links to your targeted domain.

When a domainer with SEO goals reviews the traffic referrers for a specific domain name, they should check through this list for that domain name. Any of these high volume urls that do not appear in the web traffic list go to the top of the to-do list for that domain name. Hand picked url planting works infinitely better than mechanized backlinking because the traffic is organic and naturally occurring. Yet so few domainers actually do it.

Why post your link on these popular websites? A host of good reasons. Those monster traffic websites will channel bots and visitors to your sites and hike your page rank along with the millions of dollars they spend ramping up their own. If you place an ad write a review or list an item with a proper link back to your store, that’s a promotional that can only help your site. These actions are often only briefly screened or scanned before publication.

No domainer should list a domain name at a drop list, online auction or bidding d threawithout consulting some of these sites. No domainer who claims an aggressive approach to value building can afford to skip this step in domain marketing. Even targeting five of these websites and systematically incorporating their website url over a period of three to six months will show tangible page rank improvement.

Buyers that domainers want to bid on their names will do this review. They will wonder why an aggressive price is asked from a domainer who clearly hasn’t attempted the sale marketing efforts they themselves would use. Right the most savvy of domainers are using serious strategies to target end users for traffic, product sales and site name value increase for domain resale.

Time to review your domain name strategy. Per domain name, check through this list, using a graph chart or Excel spreadsheet. There should be a pattern of websites represented by the websites used for promotion. This report should be used as a visual reminder to market websites. The density of scatter dots on a list of domain names and the cross listed pivot list of popular websites should tell their own story regarding the domainers’ real efforts toward domain name promoter.

Some webmasters might look at this list of domains as a lot of work. It is, and so is domaining. But for the professional domain name investor willing to properly put the time in, page rank and traffic can increase. The statistics of this increase in SEO value will be available for any potential buyer to review through various analytics or domain value estimators.  And then domainers can cultivate buyers using qualified data that gives new buyers inspiration to bid, with greater success and enhanced networking response.

WordPress Shopping Cart Options

Most new website customers or pickup webmasters will know how to use WordPress and resist learning complex newer website applications. The use of an app like wpStoreCart is also a safe recommendation to make for any new or startup enterprise business user that had a catalogue or extant products to utilize the database plugins. This enables any WordPress blog to become a shopping cart, with varying functionality on the back end.

The concept that a blog can be used as a sales tool is a common one, but many of those entrepreneurs who might most benefit from their domain hosting a blog based shopping cart. The website hosting account that has installation options for WordPress can also integrate its workings with the saved database information resident in the web hosting account. This transforms any historical blogsite into a content rich network on deep linked content that continues on to product listings. MarketPress,  RapidExpCart and QuickShop work too.

For diet-sized websites, the FatFreeCart allows instant creation of the “View Cart” and “Add to Cart” buttons right in your WordPress blog posts. This make affiliate reviews very readable content.

The Cf Shopping Cart application is an option for those who want a more customized look to their shopcart without sacrificing plug and play adaptability with WordPress uses. Some WordPress blogs can be started and compiled, publishing daily to garner new fans and new bookmarks.

These content rich posts can be historically embedded into the SEO machine online as soon as possible. Only later, when the fine tuning of the web catalogue and the more stringent social network strategy gels, can the website user become more proficient at administrating the more complicated functions within the shopping cart administration.

Many new vendors, Ebay  sellers and other online vendors believe they have to developed a full fledged custom website for a sales portal. This is neither true nor time efficient. A simple solution to how to sale items online with pictures, descriptions, shipping details and specifications is to install a shopping cart software application. But the unfamiliar names of these shopping cart applications will seem strange to the very people who need them.

Avactis, CF Shopping cart, MiniKart, Duka, and others provide options for WordPress users to form an entire sales platform inside a WordPress installation.

Beginner WordPress users will be looking for a shopping cart plugin that they can install and understand the use of easily. The complexity of the offerings of many shopping cart softwares aren’t even needed by most users. But the advanced know-how required to evaluate the WordPress software is more than beginners can muster. They must know the ease of use values in relationship to the business uses the WordPress shopping cart  is for, which only comes with the very experience that takes away the need for a cribbing.

Beginner uses looking to adapt a WordPress into a shopping, or add shopping car functionality to an existing website have choice beyond Amazon.com and Ebay plugins. These work with custom fields in a database used currently by the business owner. Since any spreadsheet can be made into a database using Access, the import of the item number fields, inventory information, and financial transactions can be implemented into an existing WordPress blog.

MiniCart is another WordPress compatible shopping cart for integration with blog engines.
Allows embedding items into posts and can be used for donations. Avactis Shopping Cart uses sales affiliate widgets for discretionary application within WordPress. One basic tip when merging databases is to create a unique record identifier that will always the shopping cart administrator.

Using DukaPress is another way that WordPress blog users can customize the way their cart looks when incorporated into a WordPress. For more advanced users, the DukaPress plugin creates the backend inside the WordPress architecture for those who don’t want to read a huge manual. If the domain name is also one with the word “store” in it, additional content can be quickly added to that site if it is installed as WordPress or has a wordpress directory on the file tree.

For hand on data users, posts mentioning certain products can also incorporate the post ID as the product code. This happens automatically with YAK, a funny word for a workhorse open source e-commerce plugin.  YAK is a WordPress Shopping Cart that supports posts and pages as products, allows multiple purchase options and supports item categories.This makes an excellent addon for xisting sites where the webmaster does not want to tinker with existing architecture too much.

FoxyShop is one option if the domainer is looking for something a little different. The application for FoxyShop is actually a  WordPress Shopping Cart owned plugin. The free Plugins can be easy to install or nightmares, depending on the template. FoxyShop is one that connects to the FoxyCart shopping cart service.  With FoxyShop you can user WordPress for inventory management. This plugin offers a full API that allows developers to create a custom ecommerce solution.

WordPress Simple Cart is just what it sounds like. Items from a resident worksheet or online file app can be combined using the utility of a WordPress interactive menu. If you or a domain owner, or website client want a massive utility for vending wares added or linked to from another site. A simple WordPress installation will also enable a shopping cart that supports WordPress Multisite and BuddyPress.

Domain Name World Changes

The domain world is like both the sports world and the business world, where the big names make big news and the legal ramifications and business parameters change at any moment. But recently the doings of the domain bigwigs, as well as the business restrictions and legal shifts associated with domain name trading and purchase and auction sales, have caused long term market watchers to re-estimate the current market for name trade potential.

Monte Cahn suing Moniker/Oversee is an eye-opener, unless one considers the ramifications of pouring one’s hearts-blood into an enterprise during critical business cycles of the domain game and then having the rewards twisted out of all regard. The encomiums that followed Cahn’s exit of Moniker could hardly have been garnered by a self-serving coterie intent on cementing future lawsuit goodwill.

The big impact of the February Domainer Flu Outbreak (dubbed the Playboy mansion DotCom malaise by some) seemed to be the proof that domain industry news was in fact media worthy, but the mainstream media still does not absorb and reflect domain name industry news accurately or assess its importance and relevance efficiently. What is this opaque banner between the media and general public and the domain industry? Is it only visible when one is outside the domain world?

A full week after initial reports were coming down the domain blog pike, network news, even in local areas was slow and sloppy. The attempts to cover the story , even with competition of global tabloid saturation on every Hollywood street corner, was clumsy and often inaccurate. For those looking to expand their B2B media offerings, thinks about delivering a new pipeline to broadcast media sources unable to decipher the terms, importance, or relevance of domain news to their own lives and commercial enterprises.

Domain name professionals are still weighing the value of the dot-co market. Godaddy certainly has made the introduction of a dot-co domain name into the portfolio cost friendly. Godaddy continues to sponsor entry level domainers into the name game by providing discount coupon codes. These dotcom name purchase codes, the recent feature .co registration discount, and the .info cost reduction are mighty incentive when crafting a domain development plan or business agenda for monetizing a name. These savings can really add up to domain name holders with sizeable portfolios.

It’s unsettling to realize that the domain world has been around long enough to mystify and alienate would-be industry buyers and potential players in the domain space. The battles for real estate on the domain name corporate playground show testimony to the fact that this is valuable territory to acquire and own.  Changes continue apace in the online and domaining world.
Online security is no longer a buzzword but a vulture circling over the shoulder of every webmaster.

Denial of service attacks for the Barcelona DomainFest event and the subsequent cancellation resonate with the mobile phone hacking scandal in the UK and the “Hacktivism” website hack of the PBS website in the United States. Until forthright security measures for data, hosting, and website architecture layers are followed, hacking will continue as a fact of life,  as online malice spares none. There seems to be a measure of dissonance that cognitively persuades technology officers these threats are not real, and it is a salutory effect of the many hack reports that gives webmasters worldwide a chance to correct their online security and programming integrity omissions. Will they take the chance?

Some changes are long overdue. Rick Latona’s website actually looks like a website brokerage now and not a watch shopping cart. The doings of ICANN continue to amaze Internet passersby and dubious domainer onlookers. To see Frank Schilling offer parking services is not a surprise, but my expectation is that the parking market is long diminished (except for the Whypark engine). The reluctance of some domainers to develop websites that function as new media and communication portals, with provision for any level of visitor interaction, is a long standing weakness of many domainers.

When Domains Get Personal

Domains can be bought for reasons like metrics, keywords, search relativity and discoverability. But many domainers also have a tendency to purchase domains they don’t know much about or on the basis of a recommendation. Often these are the very domains which lie fallow because the research involved won’t pay off for the domain owner.

Get traffic from 17 powerful traffic sources. Click Here!

This by no means is an entreaty against buying speculative domains. Yet without the research to support a target market and niche sales opportunity for affiliate appeal and clickthrough niches, a domainer is left with just another line item. The supporting research to sketch a domain development scenario always seems like more work once the domain name is inside the hosting paddock.

So, mining personal interests for domain possibilities pays off for the domainer. Hobbyists are likely to know which websites are popular to link to, which products are hot, and which discussions and hot topics are currently churning through the demographic of target users. They know the market because they are the market.

Consider selling the domain names inside your portfolio distant from your personal interests and then using those resources in acquiring names closer to your heart. These names can become part of a strategic plan for name value development that will be easier to achieve than one ridden with extra tasks and interpretation.

Unless you yourself are an invested member of the target demographic, almost all estimations of participation of site visitors are speculative. The less distance between the actual concrete representation of this dynamic and the illusion of what’s possible for domain value development, the more tangible projected rewards will result.

From a previous post.

Offering Interactive Participation

owlblue

Many Internet websites are flat and static destinations that brief the viewer on the same ads and text blocks they could see at a hundred other websites easily.  The key attractor to a site has always been giving the visitor something to do.  Use the domain name as a hint. But what if a domain owner elected to offer some options for the online browser to interact with the site?

1. Change a Color of Theme/Skin

Multiple themes or skins should be provided for users who enjoy the site but prefer dark black,  white, red or gray sites. If you want readers to stay and absorb your content, give them an option to change the feel of the place. Interactive participation means options for users and visitors to choose from to customize their experience. Search for themes using keywords for your application.

2. Join a Chat or Talkbox

These features can give visitors a quick way to get involved. Interactive chat allows visitors to the site to treat with the other visitors. This window forms new textual interchanges of information and points of view. Scheduled chat can make up for slow traffic volumes and allow overlap visitors to socialize. Logging in and registration may be viable options. Use this as an opportunity to include SEO tags and keywords integrated into the chat text.

3. React to Changes or Updates

When editors make changes to a site, they will want to alert visitors and poll them for their opinions. Make sure a button or arrow notified visitors of something new. Find ways to promote the domain name as a press release or news item elsewhere or as a newsletter bulletin. Changes in a site mark a progression from a launch version to an updated version. This shows a concentrated strategy on the webmaster’s part.

4. Release a Puzzle

A new feature such as a puzzle or a themed game can make visitors note to drop by the site once more. Newsletter announcements of such features make a site garner return traffic. Publishing features like dot to dot coloring activities for kids or scalable poster art in high resolutions for users to publish make a great site calling card. Tag the downloadable file with keywords.

5. Issue a Quiz

A humorous quiz is a good way to get your content published on other sites with a link back to the target originating site. Posters with any degree of fidelity will likely credit back to the source, which serves the SEO purpose of link spreading internet wide. Notify likely sites or webmasters of this feature. Incorporate keywords into questions and answers.

6. Outline a Survey

Survey results can become a very topical subject article and provide content to article directories while authoritatively linking back to the source. Survey results are scientific research that can release as a press release or raw data source for other bloggers, web aggregators, or scientific journals. there can even be a categories of surveys with data for bloggers to reference online.

7.   Trial Offers/Access

Provide trial membership of a site or an opportunity of belonging to a paid membership for a game, service, or continuing access to media. A trial membership can allow a web visitor a taste of the benefits of a paid service without monetary commitment. Even the formation of a listings aggregation of sites makes a quantifiable site. Sites that are a directory of links providing access or media for download can be a huge traffic aggregator. Save your browser search typing and research time and they will bookmark your site.

8. Coupons or Freebies

Access codes, discounts,online coupons or printable bricks and mortar coupons or offers are one of the most avidly searched items on the internet today. Make your site one of the ones visited by users wanting to get percentages off or bulk discounts at retailers online or in restaurants and stores.

Privacy Domains Hot

It’s always a good day to spin a new domain name out of trends, news, technology and consumerism. To be frank, I’m talking about domain names having to do with personal security, surfing privacy, identity theft and online malware and hacker attacks. In the online web browsing Internet surfing world we live in, awareness and proactive suppression of massive attacks on computers and directory process files is necessary.

Bots and rootkits and seeded access triggered malware is legion. Just going online without a security software screening network access, anonymous remailers, and fast-scanning device defenses is taking your computer’s productivity into your own hands. Identity theft and phishing, password scraping and bot attacks make the servers CnC smoke every minute. Adobe software and sites like FaceBpok face huge security threats from hackers.

Bot, script, host, server, secure, privacy. These are viably searched keywords and terms every curious Internet user will be checking out. Discoverability for security keywords is high. These dynamics and trends are ones that every computer owners or technology consumer wants to know more about. Identifying a term and making a website from a keyword domain involving security and/or privacy is a good idea right now.

Bots are a term most every computer user has heard of, but rarely knows what they are and what they do. Positive bots search the web for certain instances of code and keywords. Bots work for search engines, scrubbing down sites for data particles and relaying wanted information about the site. Reviews of anti-phishing and password detection products are in high demand form the search engines. This is the recipe for a great site.

Negative instances of bots are involved in the malware activity indicated. Command and Control servers govern bot activity once resident on host computers. Bots can report back when the active user is triggering sensitized processes and executing key target actions, like logging into a bank or accessing a secure government server. Just streaming a video from a site can infect the device via bot infection.

Malicious scripts, codes and hacks are are present on every computer currently than most owners realize. The active browser can screen several onclick or onload video actions and get clickjacked into popups or new windows. Bots such as Conficker and Storm can get loaded on the administrator’s or the PC user’s next startup routine. Malware can lie fallow in the background, collecting and reporting site and operational user data for future hacking use.

Free resources like Bothunter and others can slow or halt the incidence of server side or resident PC malware instances. Software such as anonymous remailers can utilize group network resources for shared bandwidth on an anonymity assured basis. Internet browser project teams and companies patches are constantly addressing these newly reported threats. But end users researchers are not the only web browsers whose inquiries heighten discoverability revenue opportunities.

Companies now use massive software arsenals to mount security campaigns against users who violate the company Internet policy. Simply by visiting suspect sites, these data scripts, malware instances and net bots can access browser cookie files, history and drive processes. Exiting personel, bitter employees, disgruntled workers can get sloppy or careless and bring down an entire system. These managers and IT staff browse the web constantly looking for security and privacy sites with good information.

Why shouldn’t it be yours?

Domain Business Drivers

toolbox

If you are like me you started out in the domain world with very few instructional courses or any type of formal teaching associated with the domains, reselling, webmaster site origination, but the domain world today chases every industry and every happening. People check online immediately the minute they hear of something new and interesting. The domain name and website url have become reactionary statements to culture and news events.

Today I read about an auction in which the domain name 3DTVs.com was offered at auction for a reserve of $100,000.The opening bid range for this domain at Moniker is actually between $100,001 and $250,000. That is a lot of money and a lot of potential value for the right customer. The transparent use such an url would have for electronic vendors and online brands in 3DTVs is massive.  The roads to get to a quarter-million-dollar domain, and the decisions involved, are part of the excitement of domaining.

I can remember a time when just trying to explain to someone what a domain was took a half an hour, and explaining how a domain auction worked even more time. And even then, trying to illustrate how a name like 3DTVs.com might explode into a stunning portal would make people look at me like I was crazy. Just assigning a monetized value to a domain like that takes courage. The future is wide open for LCD, HDTV, and 3DTV televisions.

Technology domains have always been an exciting niche of the domain marketplace because they showcase the Internet both as a launchpad and pathway for marketing and promotion at once. The user base of the Internet has learned to follow the dots and click links and see what there is to see. Configuration of a site plan, seeding of trackback links online and nouveau introspections into web journalism turn up something new every day.

The tools for launching a website online and building value are all available and at the webmaster’s fingertips. Web design, content, images and applications make website production a snap. Keyword density, SEO priming, and content originality allow anyone a place at the domaining table. If you can write you can post. If you can copy and paste you can insert images and align tables. If you can send email you can bolster a network of site fans.

Domain development and domain name portfolio investment have a business model for every budget however modest. Online domain services, link marketing, seo optimization, microtools, and sponsor offers come much more smoothly than in the dark days of only .com, .net and .org. Link exchanges, RSS feeds, article directory websites and more illustrate the variety of approaches a domainer webmaster can take to realize value on a domain.

Today more than ever before Internet users want destination websites that give them the  information they need, entertain them in new ways, and provide ideas and concepts for business and creative project development. The new owner of a premium domain name like 3DTVs.com will have a kaleidoscope of choices for web development in front of them.

The pioneer days of domaining, with its tumbleweeds, dusty main streets and ill-informed communication between domain owner and site programmer are over. Exciting new technologies online guard content with licensing search tools, index meta tags and data tables, and release time content explosion overnight that lead back to the target domain site.

I like to think hobby domainers today have replaced the fallout bunker building tradition of the 1950′s. People tinker with their domains at night and on the weekends, and brag about them during social visits. But the domain promotion activities of social networking and link building can be a productive way to replace hours of bored site clicking. The Internet can consume a lot of time, and time is the most precious element of all.

Hot Domain Website Markets

The domain buying and selling world functions on its own, but the channel where the real websites predict which domain names can become blockbuster successes is also an ongoing dynamic in the domain game online. If you want to get started buying a domain name without a full plan of attack for an application, service, product topic or subject, here are some domaining “Rules of the Road”.

1. People Like What’s Free

Using a domain name for a website with the word “free” in it is a guaranteed selling point. Not just for the eventual resale of the domain name, but for ads that feature the url. Many links directories will want to feature ads about free products, material, services or participation sites that allows visitors to enjoy themselves or get an object or solution for free.

Free hints, free tips, free explained coaching sessions, free videos, free ebooks, free coupons, free links or free downloads are things online users want. Access to a website with free objects can be sold. Free translations, free access to trial games or memberships, or free real world wares can be compelling attractors for any website. Launch of a free website is easy as word tends to get around.

2. Browsers Like Short Names

The age of the long complicated url with multiple subdirectories is over. unless you have a talent and an enthusiasm for assigning read rights to individual directories or furnishing vulnerabilities to your hosting files, just get and use a short domain for type in ease of use. Short domains never go out of style. For brandable sites, solutions, and apps, choose a portfolio short name and go from there.

Short names become a cute sexy brand name people enjoy saying and emailing to others. If it isn’t an easily spelled name or a catchy would-be nonsense  word (Google, Yahoo) put it back on the domain shelf. The name should “say” something. if it sounds like  a verb or an alien spacecraft, so be it. But if people can’t remember it and type it easily, it won’t matter.

3. Online Means Tech Names

Tech names and technology websites are the sites people go to t find out what certain terms mean or how to deal with computer issues. People want to know what terms or new words mean and how they apply to everyday uses of devices, communication, or work. Tech names that correspond to new technologies or knowledge banks tend to be very discoverable.

Technology is growing so rapidly in so many different directions it’s hard not to miss a niche in technology without really trying. Exact terms and related “store” or “info” tech domains can have huge discoverability and SEO profile altitude. Grabbing new terms or first adopter words, medical slang or industry jargon and making it into a domain is a smart domainer trend.

4. Users Want Shortcuts

In the computer manuals and the dictionary type descriptions of programming features or user issues bore people to death. If internet users suspect their is a much easier way to do something, they are willing to find the way to it online.

Finding shortcuts to other shortcuts makes a great website. The shortcut website makes a great bookmark reference. Making a solution website discoverable means spreading the tech around. Those long-winded explanations are for nerds with time on their hands. Real internet users want cheat cheat, printable forms and downloadable documents.

5. Online Researchers Want Answers

A domain name that stands for a website with material that provides a way to solve a problem or ease up on a pain point is a highly desirable and shareable website. the domain name becomes a talking point. Think about how many times a day people have conversations with other people who have the same problems they do. If they can share a website url, they will repeat your domain name a dozen times a day and sell the concept for you.

6. Updates

Any name with “update” or “news’ has huge SEO potential. The instant discoverability of dated content which is current and well written will be repeatedly selected by research users and curious browsers alike. Just expanding press releases, rewriting clumsily written articles, and condensing information reports into readable content will attract hordes of online users. News domains quickly and easily become traffic domains.

More on Keyword Stuffing

Keywords are one of the most important parts of your website content. It is what tells the search engines what your website is about.

It is considered to be unethical to employ such tactics. Keyword stuffing involves overloading your meta tag and written content on your page with every possible phrase or keyword that relates to your site.

When search engines crawl your site, they can quickly determine if your site has valuable content for a reader. If they detect that your keyword density is too high, your site may be at risk of being dropped in the page ranks, or worse, dropped from the listings altogether. This is not a risk that you want to take as it can be very difficult if not impossible to recover.

Keyword density should be somewhere between 3% and 7%. If you are to write content with the keyword density of say 10%, the article would begin to hardly makes sense to the reader anyway. Search engines want to give their customers what they are looking for along with quality information. They are always looking for ways to weed out sites that do not offer their customers the best experience possible.

Search engine algorithms are forever improving. Trying to outsmart the search engine is nearly impossible these days. The best thing you can do is to offer quality content for your readers, the rest will follow.

What do you think? Please leave your comments.
