How do I get the best listing in search engines?

<< | >>

This is referred to as "SEO" -- Search Engine Optimisation. Many web sites, forums, and companies exist that aim/claim to help with that.

But it basically comes down to this:

  • In your site design, use text rather than images and Flash for important content
  • Make your site work with JavaScript, Java and CSS disabled
  • Organise your site such that you have pages that focus on a particular topic
  • Avoid HTML frames and iframes
  • Use normal URLs, avoiding links that look like form queries (
  • Market your site by having other relevant sites link to yours
  • Don't try to cheat the system (by stuffing your pages of keywords, or attempting to target specific content at search engines, or using link farms)
