Introduction

Webmaster tools are web sites or programs that assist you as a web designer to do you work either easier or better.

Many of them help you to

  • prepare your site prior to submission to search engines
  • Check if your site is already listed
  • Submit your site

Prepare your site for Search Engines

General

In order to be indexed and listed your site must have good content.

Keywords

Your page must contain your keywords in strategic positions. See Site promotion.

You should list your keywords in a keyword Meta tag in the head section.

Some Search engines no longer require this, but others do. And many of the tools listed also require this.

To be effective keywords should appear on the page 3 to 8 times.

Use a keyword counting tool to help you with this task.

Try to use alternative words to your main keywords

If you want to get American viewers, use some American spelling, e.g. Color in place of Colour

 

Keyword Density Analyzer

This tool requires that your

  • Page has been uploaded to the web
  • Your page has a keyword meta tag

Use the tool on all your pages.
Also use the tool on any good ranking competitors page to see there keyword analysis. Use this information to help you optimise your pages.

http://www.goldstats.com/free/ Free stats. I am using this on my Tenerife information site. The only visible bit is the dirty great banner at the top of the home page. This gives me better stats but I would have to put that banner on all my pages to obtain the required information. If you can put up with the banner on every page it would be V GOOD
