Why a spider!?

Your website’s SEO is ranked by a program called spider. The program crawls your website and tells the search engine how to rank your website. The only way for your website to rank on search engines is with the help of a spider. Spiders explore the world wide web and report their findings to the brood mother, the search engine.

Attracting a spider: Serenade with your metatext

For your website to start ranking, you will need to attract a spider to visit you. Your metatext shows the spider (and your human visitors) what your website is about.

If you do not know what a metatext is, here is a screenshot of it.

The metatext should be a clear summary of what your website is about and it should also make people want to click on it. The best way to create an attractive metatext is by using keywords, which is also the best way to communicate with your new pet spider.

Communicating with your spider: Using the language of spiders, keywords

The best way to communicate with your pet spider is by using keywords. The more relevant the content is to the keyword, the easier it will be for the spider to understand it. Keywords also allow your human visitors to find you more easily. For example, if you sell pet food in Singapore, your keywords may be “Pet Food Singapore”.

Keeping your a spider entertained: Spiders likes changes

The spiders have a short attention span and need to be constantly entertained. The easiest way to entertain your spider is to keep your website updated regularly. Simple actions like refreshing the images on your website or updating your website content are some easy ways you can keep both your pet spider your human visitors and entertained.

Feeding your spider: A sumptuous blog diet

Blog posts are the best and freshest food for your spider. Blogs can be prepared in different flavours to complement your main dish: your website content. Have a few different themes that complement your website’s content. Alternate between these themes to keep your blog fresh. To keep your spider well fed, you should feed it at least twice a week and each post should be about 300 words.

Waiting for results: A happy spider always returns

Your spider will take time to crawl to your website and to learn about it. After spending some time on your website, your pet spider will need to return to the brood mother and share all about your website. The brood mother will then decide on your ranking.  It can take up to half a year for any obvious results to show. Be patient and continue your efforts, your spider will return time and again to thank you by rewarding you with an amazing ranking on search engine results.
