    Basic Resources for a Web Site
    Version 1.2.1 BY FRE[SP]3KZ

    Getting Webspace
    You first need to get some web space. Sometimes you can get some free webspace from your ISP, but if you don't, try this website: www.absolutely-free-hosting.com for a listing of loads of FWPs [Free Webpage Providers] and if they want ads on your page or not, and so on.

    If you're in the UK and you need to get some decent paid space, you can get some cheap domains and webspace from 1&1.

    Redirections
    If you land up with a FWP that gives you a really long URL such as
    http ://members.loadsaspace.4free.com /MemberStreet/38423 /~john.smith/ [or maybe shorter [img]file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Administrator/Desktop/WEB%20TIPS/WEB%20Basics.php_files/tongue.gif[/img]] then consider getting a redirector. There are some good ones out there, but the best [in my opinion, correct me if you think I'm wrong] are:

    The next thing is if you want to be contacted by visitors to your site is to get
    an e-mail address. You can get a free POP3 e-mail address from PostAccess.

    Getting to grips with HTML
    If you don't know HTML, try tutorials at Page Resource. They have very simple tutorials for newbies and oldies to help you take the plunge.

    Uploading your files
    If you want to download a program to upload then try FileZilla. The great thing is that it has an interface similar to CuteFTP. It's open-source, so it can be hacked and modified to your needs.

    If you want to upload without a FTP program go straight to Net2FTP, which can be found at www.net2ftp.com, or an alternative website can be found at www.01ftp.com

    ____________________________________________________

    Get your site listed on top in search engines, Search Engine Optimization
    copy and pasted from Neowin.net

    The tutorial is all about getting your site listed on top in Search Engines i.e Search Engine Optimization

    First thing you need to do is find the keywords you want to optimize for.
    how to find it ?

    ok no probs there is great tool by Overture ( http://inventory.overture.com/d/sea...ory/suggestion/ ) but i will suggest using this free tool called GoodKeywords ( http://www.goodkeywords.com/products/gkw/ )

    this one does the same job as Overture does but it also supports Search Engines Lycos and Teoma.

    for example if you want to optimize for the keyword "tech news" then just search fot that keyword in any of the tools i specified... it shall show you keywords related to that and no of searches..

    so pick the keywords which are related to your site.

    for example when you search for tech news u will see results like this :

    Count Search Term
    11770 tech news
    351 itt news tech
    191 high tech news
    60 news tech texas
    49 computer tech news
    42 bio news tech
    34 in itt news tech
    30 news tech virginia
    29 asia news tech
    25 hi tech news
    25 sci tech news

    now see what other terms are related to your keyword technology news ?

    do couple of searches like that and note down around 15-20 keywords.
    after that keep the keywords which are searched most on the top.

    ok i have done everything now what ?

    ok now u need title tag for the page.
    title tag should include top 3 keywords. like for "tech news" it can be like :

    "Latest Tech News, Information Technology News and Other computer raleted news here."

    remember characters should not be more than 95 and should not have more than 3 "," commas - some search engines might cosider more than 3 commas as spam

    ok now lets move on to Meta Tags

    You need following Meta Tags in web page

    QUOTE
    <META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <META name="keywords" content="keyword1,keyword2,keyword3">
    <META name="description" content="brief description about the site">
    <META name="robots" Content="Index,Follow">


    no need to have other meta tags like abstract,re-visit and all...no one reads it..

    now let me explain everything step by step
    <META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

    This tag is tells content type is html and character set used it iso-8859-1 there are other character sets also but this is the one mosty used..

    <META name="keywords" content="keyword1,keyword2,keyword3">

    This one should have all your keywords inside starting from keyword with most counts...
    keyword tag for our example would be something like :

    <META name="keywords" content="tech news,technology news, computer technology news,information technology,software news">

    remember put around 15-20 keywords max not more than that and dont repeat keywords or dont put keywords like this tech news,info tech news,latest tech news and like that...i hope you got what i meant... smile.gif

    <META name="description" content="brief description about the site">

    Provide short decription about your site and include all the keywords mentioned in the title tag.

    our decription tag could be
    <META name="description" content="One Stop for Latest Tech News, Information Technology News, Computer Related and Software news.">

    it can be upto 255 characters and avoid using more than 3 "," commas

    <META name="robots" Content="Index,Follow">

    this one is used for search robots..following explanation will help you :

    index,follow = index the page as well as follow the links
    noindex,follow = dont index the page but follow the links
    index,nofollow = index the page but dont follow the links
    noindex,nofollow = dont index page, dont follow the links
    all = same as index,follow
    none = same as noindex,nofollow

    ok now lets move on to body part of the page
    now this is very important part, include all top 3 keywords here,
    i will suggest just break the keyword and use it...

    for example

    YourSiteName.com one stop for all kind of Latest Tech News and Computer Related information and reviews.................

    and best thing will be include main keywords in <h#> tags <h1><h2> etc..
    and yes
    start with <h1> and then move to <h2> <h3> etc..

    i know <h1> tag will be too big but CSS can help you there, define small font size in css for H1,H2,... tags

    ok now when done with page copy now u need to provide title and alt tags for images and links also

    use some keywords in the tags but dont add all the keywords and if not nccessary then dont use keywords in it basically it should explain what is image all about thats it...

    remember add Top keyword atleast 4 times in the body and other 2 keywords thrice and twice respectively.

    ok now we move on to footer part
    this is very important part for Search Engine optimization, try to include top keywords here and see the effect smile.gif use site keywords as links i.e.
    <a href="news.php">Tech News</a> <a href="software-news.php">Software News</a> etc..

    ok thats it done ? NO you need to read some more stuff..may be you can all it as bottom lines...

    Site Map - This is page where you need to put all the links present in your site, this is will help Search Engines to find the links easily and also provide link for site map in footer, coz search engines start scanning the page from bottom.

    Robots.txt - what's that now ? well this file contains address of directories which should not be scanned by search engines.. more info can be found here : http://www.robotstxt.org/wc/exclusion.html
    search engines line google, yahoo ask for robots.txt file.

    Valid HTML - Your code should have valid html and doc type, i know its kind of diffucult to follow all the standards but you shall atleast open and close all the tags properly, you can check your page's html online here : http://validator.w3.org/]http://validator.w3.org/ or you can use this free software called HTML Tidy : http://tidy.sourceforge.net/]http://tidy.sourceforge.net/

    ok all done now need to check your site with this script, its called SEO Doctor : http://www.instantposition.com/seo_doctor.cfm

    it shall show you the report of your site with solution.

    ok now i corrected the errors and all now start submitting the site :

    start with google : http://google.com/addurl.html]http://google.com/addurl.html
    then yahoo : http://submit.search.yahoo.com/free/request

    then move to altavista,alltheweb and other search engies..

    also submit your site to direcories like http://dmoz.org
    http://jayde.com]http://jayde.com[/URL] etc...
    dmoz is must, coz google, yahoo and may more search engines uses same directory

    and remember dont try to SPAM with keywords in these directories, dmoz is handled by Human Editors

    ok submitted the sites ? but still i cant see my site on top? why ?

    wait for sometime may be a month or so but keep an eye on your search term, use http://Googlealert.com - this will show whenever google updates for your keywords, it will mail you the new results.

    and also check whether your site is listed by google or not..
    use this tool called Google Monitor, it can be downloaded for free from : http://www.cleverstat.com/google-monitor.htm

    One of the webhosts I use is 1asphost.com

    It's very good http://www.1asphost.com

    Only problem is, if u want a popular site with pictures, the bandwidth'll run out pretty quickly (1 gig per month)

    http://www.w3schools.com/ is far better for HTML/CSS tutorials

    http://www.phpfreaks.com/ for php.

    and for the newcomer...now you need to create an 'index.html' file in the root directory of your site.

    I assume you've got FTP and all that?
