TIP OF THE WEEK
But did you know that this common practice can have a negative effect on your search engine listings, by pushing your major keywords down the page?
In terms of search engine ranking, it's generally accepted that the higher your keywords are on the page, the better.
1. Move the script to the bottom of the page
The best way to do this is simply to test it out and see if it works - if you don't experience any adverse effects and your site appears to continue to perform normally, stick with it.
Your keywords will suddenly be much higher up the page, and your site may even load quicker too with all the code at the bottom.
If you wish, you can also combine this method with the second method as described below.
2. Externalize the script into a .js file
It also means you can have the same code on a number of different pages, yet only have a single file to modify and maintain when you want to adjust the script.
Save this file with a .js extension, for example, 'mycode.js', and upload this page to your server to the same directory as the web page.
Upload your modified web page to your server and test.
And there you have it - a smaller page, improved keyword positioning, quicker load times for your visitors, and easier script maintenance.
As stated above, both these methods can easily be combined if you wish, too.

The Key to Choosing Keywords
Want to drive more targeted traffic to your site? Then you need to get your site listed higher on search engines. A place in the top ten or twenty would be nice, wouldn't it? Sound impossible? Well, it's not, and I'm going to tell you how to do it.
Most techniques to improve your search engine rankings have one thing in common--Keywords! The appropriate keywords are the key to ranking high in search engines.
But how do you go about choosing the most effective keywords? You must start by analyzing your business, company, product or service carefully, thinking of all the words that relate. Try getting a group of friends or family together to make lists of keywords or phrases they would use when searching for a product or service like yours.
Here are a few questions to ask yourself when compiling a list of appropriate keywords:
1. Who needs my service?
Have you carefully defined your target market? If so, this question should be easy. Now, let's say you offer weight loss supplements. The people who search for your product might use phrases like "low metabolism" or "fat blocker." They won't just search for the term "weight loss."
2. Should I include variations of my keywords?
Making your site easy to find means making your keywords as specific as possible. That includes using misspelled, capitalized, and plural words, as well as longer forms of keywords. For instance, you may need to use "metabolize" AND "metabolism" to cover all the possible search options.
3. Have I included any wrong keywords?
Do not include stop words like "and" and "the." You should also avoid overly common words like "Internet." Keep your words highly specific to your business. If you choose words that too many other sites also have, you will get pushed way down in the rankings.
Once you have your list of keywords, you need to place them properly on your site. The HTML title, text, meta description, meta keywords, ALT tags, comment tags, and URL name are all places were you~ll want to place your keywords.
It is particularly important to place keywords in your HTML title, because it is the first thing a search engine's spider sees on your page. The HTML title describes the content of your web page in one sentence, and is supported to some extent by every search engine.
Drive tons of targeted traffic to your site with keywords for just 5c per visitor. You pay only when a pre-qualified visitor clicks on your site ready to buy. Visit http://www.MarketingBlaster.com for more details.
