How do I increase my search engine ranking?

Search engines use proprietary ranking algorithms, and Web directories rely on human editors. There is no guarantee that submitting your website to a particular search engine or directory produces a high ranking.

There are several things you can do that might increase your search engine ranking:

  • Use clear, concise title, description, and keyword meta tags.
  • Ensure proper use of HTML heading tags (h1, h2, h3, etc.).
  • Use alt tags on images.
  • Make regular updates to your website.
  • Resubmit your domain name after large updates.

Keep in mind that it might take six to eight weeks for your updates to affect your search engine ranking.
