to search engines. Each image carries some associated text, and
soon it will carry the following independent items:
<meta name="description" ... />
<meta name="keywords" ... />
<h1>Independent Heading For the Image</h1>
<p>Independent text for the image in question.</p>
And the page to view the image will contain keywords...
I'm trying to figure out which will work better of the following two
methods. The goal is to help address search engines and create
a server side manner in which to display the pages, employing
keywords in the addressbar.
or by getting rid of the numerical identifiers...
Keywords for each image and search engines are the goals. I
wanted to avoid creating independent HTML pages, but that might
represent the best way to go as far as search engines goes, and
place them inside the appropriate folders on the server.
Some people try to change the text on images to get Google to
come back to their website more often. But I tend to think that
Google probably caught onto that a long time ago and drops
everything after the question mark (?). I imagine Google might
skip changing dates as well. For instance if the only thing that
changes on the page is a current date...
What the owner of the website really wants is to get their
name to the top of the google search engine when someone
<a href=" http://www.yqcomputer.com/
">Raleigh Swimming Pool Builder</a>
Along with a couple other things... So I might need to work that
into the ?title=RaleighSwimmingPoolBuilder&swimmingpool=1
Those are my thoughts, and I'm kind of hesitating and exploring
other options before I push into one way or the other.
It took Google 3 months to grab the website, which should only
really be one month. Based upon my initial tests in the past, it
only takes a month to get a webpage recognized by Google,
when only one link is created inside a newsgroup.
Hope that helps explain why I decided to move in the server
images goes. I've read some things though that indicate that
to miss everything that goes on with the webpage as it exists
right now. I don't know how long I'm going to have wait
before google picks up on the page...
And thanks for commenting that the images are nice. I
normally reduce the size and change some things, they
are quite big at the moment, but then again, the people
that they're targeting are people with big homes and fast
internet connections, so I left the images as 300Kb files.
Gif's tend to become problematic for Internet Explorer
machines as well. If you open one of those images up
inside of Internet Explorer then open another browser
up, if your machine isn't the latest greatest top of the
line, you notice the images acting funny when browsed
by Internet Explorer.
Thanks for your suggestions Al. Hope this helps.
