Search Engine Optimization for promoting one’s website used to be much easier not too long ago. Much has changed! When search engines first got started they used to rely simply by trusting what the website owner said about their site. If you were looking to add specialized optimization, you would need only to add some meta-tags. This would get you to the top rankings. If your competitor listed a keyword 7 times and you listed it 8 times; you would out rank your competitor. You can see how things were systemically favoring 2 parts dishonesty and 4 parts chaos. The game has changed since then.
Much more complex formulas are running the leading search engines of Google, Bing, and Yahoo. While meta-tags are still essential and helpful in helping your website get recognized by the most used search engines within particular searches; there is now a whole list of elements that comprise the essentials for optimization techniques! No longer is it as simple as repeating the same word a thousand times, and giving attention to the met- tags simply. Now search engines are looking for a whole spectrum of essential elements to better ensure accuracy and fairness, including:
- Meta tags
- Domain names
- Header tags
- Bold text
- Keyword weighting
- Keyword prominence
- Alt tags
- File names
- Link text
In addition to these is Google’s PageRank formula. This is how Google assesses all the links that are directed to your website from outside websites. If a well ranking external website has a link to your site in good standing, this helps you out. It is a kind of who you know system. Getting a good page rank takes time and a bit of work in getting this done.

I just completed this website for OrganicScapes landscaping company of Bend, Oregon at this domain name: bendorganiclandscaping.com. Take a look!
One of the most important elements in achieving top search engine ranking is choosing the best domain name for your business. When picking a domain name for a client is very helpful to incorporate relevant keywords within the very domain name itself.
If one were searching the powerful Google search engine looking for a landscaping company within a particular city, the search may look like this: “Bend Oregon Landscaping”. Google gives the highest priority of keyword ranking to the domain name itself. If an individuals search words/phrase are present in your web domain name, all the better! Therefore, the best available domain name for my client OrganicScapes incorporated both the location of city (bend), and the industry subject (landscaping) within their domain name. We choose to include (organic) in the middle to have continuity with the business name. While there is are many more tricks and tools that go into building a website with organic S.E.O. (search engine optimization), this should be given the most consideration.
The book Getting Noticed on Google in Easy Steps is an excellent resource for incorporating organic search engine optimization.

This was an earlier website that I developed for Absolute Effects Painting that shows what organic S.E.O (search engine optimization) techniques can do over time. Currently, this Bend, Oregon based company’s website has climbed to the top of Google’s search engine ranking within the year. From the inception of each website project Watts Web Studio is strategically placing essential S.E.O elements in the structure of the website’s code. This includes behind the scenes meta-tags, keywords, title and alt tags that never get seen by the websites user; of which are absolutely essential for any hopes of rising to the top.
The optimum keywords would most likely be all or a combination of the following keywords: “Bend Oregon Painting Company”. Check it out. This company’s domain name absoluteeffectspainting.com comes up in the top 10 everytime.
