Link It Back To Your Home

18 Aug

When designing a website it is very important that you have an anchortext that links back to your home page and throughout all pages of your site. Usage of Flash and Java is usually just fine from the user’s point of view. But search engine spiders cannot use this so still you would have to include a text link as well.

If it is possible you should always use relevant anchor text in your home pages instead of just using the plain old and very boring “HOME” link.

Home page is the most important page in your website, so it is fairly important that that this page has a good backlink from each and every page in your site. This is one good idea and an easy way to create a good internal link arrangements and this also makes the search engines easily indexed your website.

You should always keep in mind that this linking is not just for the Home page in your site, but also to the other important pages in your website. A good example is if you have a blog site, then you want to increase its ranking for some particular and specific article, all you have to do is to give it a side – wide link on all of your previous blog posts.

It is good practice to do this on a constant basis so that you have a strong internal linking system in place. The better structured you are the easier it is for search engines to index your pages. The more indexed pages you have, the higher chances of traffic you’ll receive.

Just remember that there’s more to it than just internal linking and on-page search engine optimization. Search engine marketing is still one of the largest factor in your search engine domination.

    Will a flash link be spidered or are even flash hyperlinks ignored?

    No, it will not be spidered. It’s just as bad as using javascript. Search engine spiders/crawlers cannot index the links stored inside it. That’s why the only way to make a flash site rank well and be well optimized is to create an HTML version of the site and having all the same links the flash is linking to.
