Search Engine Registration and Optimisation
Posted 19 April 2003 - 07:39 PM
and searched different phrases, like:
casio +calculator +forum
casio +calculators +forum
"casio calculator forum"
the only one of these that listed this forum among the top 20 results, was "casio forum" on altavista..
must be hard for ppl to find this place.. which is kinda sad
I'de like to hear from some of the resent members, how they came across this forum, and wether or not is was hard to find ?
here's a nice site on basic search engine registration and optimisation, maybe you find some interest in it

this was a long time ago, back when i was in year 8. the webring and some of the sites seem to have disapeered now.
1. searched yahoo for "Casio Games", found http://casiogames.cjb.net/
2. went to some of the links. found cpa.
at this stage, however, i was not really interested in a casio forum.
2 months later:
3. went to cpa, went to links.
4. went through all the links. found a very nice looking one - i can't remember the url.
5. went to it. scrolled down the menu and saw "Casio Forum". i had been haveing problems with one of my creations, so i went to it and got here. and bla bla bla, went through 4 different forum programs since then.

There's allways an extra link or two..
I think the site should be properly registered with some search engines..
I guess most of you spend more time here, than at whatever page you found this link(?), so it's seems a bit odd that this page should rely on those others to redirect ppl here...

It lakes some meta tags for search engines to be happy, Simon should add an empty robots.txt file at the root of casiocalc.org that would help too.
Since I put these meta tags on my web pages google and others seems to be very happy:
<meta name="robots" content="all"> <meta name="Language" content="fr,en"> <meta name="Rating" content="General"> <meta name="distribution" content="Global"> <meta name="Author" content="John Wellesz (2072)"> <meta name="Copyright" content="?2001-2003 John Wellesz"> <meta name="Revisit-after" content="30 days">
Of course it is recommended to add the "description" and "keywords" meta for some search engines.

oh well. maybe if someone fixed the hompage so you just went straight to the forum.
