what are the first steps to optimize a fresh website?
Hi.... Im new here...
my friend and me have created a website and we want it to optimize but it too fresh and not existing in Search Engine especially google... I want to get help from you, so that we have an idea where to start and to make our site visible in SE...
what is the very first step to optimize a fresh website?
what should we do?
1. Relevant authoritative back links. Link baiting and social media.
2. Accessibility in themed structure. Making your website easy to crawl and index. Information architecture is key.
3. Basic on-site SEO factors. Original content.
Let's take a step back just to make sure your bases are covered.
The first step takes place long before a site launches. Good code engineering is a substantial contributing factor to good search engine rankings. I've found this to be the case through a great deal of experience. We've actually negated potential ongoing SEO engagements by doing a code restructuring first, only to find the results were so dramatically positive in search engines that only very cursory SEO (or no SEO at all beyond the initial content loading) was needed.
Is the link in your signature the site in question?
#1 Add a few new content pages every week. It'd say 2-3 pages a week and/or 8-10 new content pages per month.
#2 Add social aspects to your website such as: forum/blog/rss feed. If done correctly will help to attract new people to your website. Creating a blogspot account and have it point to your website is a good idea to get indexed quickly.
#3 Write all original content, very important as most engines love original content.
#4 Construct your Titles in accordance to what keywords you want people to find your website. Titles are very important, especially in engines like Yahoo!/Google.
#5 Having your website in a forum signature is a good idea. Also having friends and/or family doing this also helps.
#6 Social Networking works a little bit. I'm not a huge fan of it, but I suspect it does work a bit.
#7 Setup a Google Sitemap. Helps good to know if any changes are made, and they will get indexed faster.

I think getting your site submitted in different host directories works quite well and for example I have listed our website at host-dome.com and since few days after , the traffic went up as well as the sales
There are a lot of things you can do to improve your ranking in search engines. However search engines are very clever in the fact they have different algorithms rotating to determine which website is more relevant.
Basically what you need to do is keep your content very relevant to the type of services you offer. Try not to repeat the same word over and over. Make sure your website validates through W3C. Make sure you make good use of ALT tags on images. And most important of all try and change your content slightly each month to show search engines that you are infact updating your content frequently.
I hope these tips help. But remember search engine rules change very often and it can be very hard to get high up in listings.
