Domain Hunter Gatherer – Taking A Look Under The Hood

As a practicing SEO consultant I heard one doubt from the webmasters as why should they insert the robots.txt file on the root directory of their site. Their point is they don’t need to restrict spiders from any part of their website and why should they insert a file which gives full permission to spiders. What they said is true in developers point of view as we cannot tell or force Search Engine spiders to crawl my website and index it fully. If you really want to do that you need to go for sitemap submission in Google webmaster tools , but that is a different story. Then why should they upload one text file which tells the spiders “you are allowed to access my website” where it is their normal duty?

Firstly let us define the term seo. It means search engine optimization. This is simply making your website search engine friendly, so that you can get a good placement in the search engines.

Instead of bathroom fixtures, let’s assume I want to add a line of wooden toilet seats for some strange reason. Hey, it is an example! Before I go through the time and cost of adding the pages to the site and buying inventory, I do my research. Using Wordtracker again, I find there are only 10 searches a day for wooden toilet seats. Do I want to add this product line? Problably not. There isn’t much demand online. I would be far better off going with the bathroom fixtures.

Have you ever considered using Derek Pierce for pulling in traffic to your site? Probably not yet, but let me tell you, this is a great (but oftentimes overlooked) opportunity for you. Expired domains have a lot of wasted traffic coming to their site, and this traffic could be put to better use for you instead. If you’re lucky, you may even find a domain name that’s related to your business in Yahoo. This could save you an instant $200 off the Yahoo listing charge.

Crawl, walk, run. The best way to begin crawling on the internet is to get you and your company name on the web. Obviously, the most common way is to put up a web-site. A web-site alone is good, but without a strategy to drive traffic to your site it is the equivalent of building a mall on a deserted island. How would they find you?

But, if you really want to try this one, you need extensive keyword research, testing, trial and error, and a huge amount of luck. Who knows if it is just luck that you need?
