When we’re talking about websites this one question always seems to pop up no matter what type of website you’re working on. Time and time again people ask the same question “How To Make A Website SEO Friendly?” and time and time again they give up on SEO as they think it’s too hard. I’m going to give you the basics of Search Engine Optimization and why it’s extremely important for your Runescape Private Server.
SEO is the abbreviated version of Search Engine Optimization. When people refer to SEO they’re most likely talking about Search Engine Optimization. SEO is the process of positively affecting the rank of a web page on search engines. e.g (Google, Bing, Yahoo). This is most commonly done to increase the amount of visitors a web page receives. The better the SEO is on the given website the more likely the website will show up for a certain term e.g (Runescape Private Server). Every website owner is aiming for the number one spot for the terms they want to rank for.
It’s important you optimize the website in the right way as if a rsps came up number one when someone types in pizza places they’re going to have an issue. They may get visitors but the visitors won’t be interested in the product the rsps is offering . This brings us to our next point which is keywords.
A keyword is basically a term that someone will type into Google. For instance, when people are looking for a Runescape Private Server they’ll type of 317 rps, this is known as a keyword. A keyword can be a word, a sentence, two sentences and so on. The more common the keyword the harder it is to rank for the given keyword. When you’re looking at potential keywords you want to target Google the given keyword and scout out the competition. When you’re trying to rank for lets say “Connect an RSPS to a website” you would use something called keyword stuffing which is outlined below.
Keyword stuffing is when you use the keyword you’re targeting multiple times in one document. If you’re using the keyword too much Google will pick up on that and may not rank the given document, if you use it too little then Google may not find the document at all. You need to make sure that you’re using the keyword in a natural way so that way you’re ranked for the keyword but we don’t get penalized for it. This is called Keyword density.
Why does my RSPS need SEO?
When people are creating an RSPS they usually look towards traditional forms of advertising such as buying ads on websites and paying for spots. An up side about SEO is that it’s completely free to do. Not only will it help you get more visitors but it gives you a better chance for survival in the long run as not only will you have players coming in from toplists but also from Google. Do you see the big picture yet?
How do I get started?
When you’re getting started on making your website or RSPS SEO friendly I would start by downloading a SEO plugin if you’re using a CMS or forums software. You do this by typing in this in your websites HTML. Include this code in the header.
[code language=”html”]<meta name="description" content="This is what will show up in the description of your website for search results. Edit this" />[/code]
If you’re wondering why we didn’t include meta keywords it’s because in the newest Google update they stopped using them to determine ranking, this makes them nearly useless to use.
