SOLUTION: Super Google Rankings Even for a Flash Site

, SOLUTION: Super Google Rankings Even for a Flash Site, Frederick Nuetei

Google’s PageRank™ (PR) system continues to ever-more dominate the internet! It seems that Google’s skyrocketing influence on all-thing-internet matches the upward trajectory of its common stock shares.

So, how does a website end up with a high (or, conversely, low) Page Ranking from Google. Even more importantly for high-end website owners is how to meld together all of those expensive “Flash” movies with the system Google uses to determine PR.

First, though, a brief explanation of what Page Ranking by Google is all about: Google itself says that its PageRank™ system is at the very heart of its search prowess. It adds, “PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page’s value. In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. But, Google looks at considerably more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; for example, it also analyzes the page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves ‘important’ weigh more heavily and help to make other pages ‘important.’ Using these and other factors, Google provides its views on pages’ relative importance.”

The PR system runs from 0 through 10, with 10 being the highest possible PR achievable. Even if your website is ranked from 0-2, which is the lowest range for established sites, it may not matter because some low-ranked sites nevertheless get good search engine placement for their keywords and phrases – that is, unless, the ranking is 0 due to Google blacklisting a site for SEO blackhat spamming of one sort, or another. Otherwise, a low-ranked site owner can buckle down and work on creating links and improving site content.

PR 3 can work alright in some cases but does not bode well for a site that is involved a competitive industry and work should go into improving both the SEO characteristics of the site and the breadth of its content.

PR 4 is an above-average rating and indicates that there are sufficient Google “votes” for the site to make it reliable and that the site has good content. It is difficult for a new site (one that is less than 6 months old) to get a PR 4 without putting forth a lot of effort.

Getting above 4 is very difficult, especially for a new site unless it is debuted with a lot of fanfare such as an IPO, or a government or educational institution’s backing.

Getting into PR 5 is a milestone in any website’s path to profitability. While some web gurus such as Mike’s Money Making Mission opine that 5 is “attainable” even poor Mike is only ranked PR 3! Additionally, a PR 5 indicates that there are many quality inbound links to the site, that it is both respectable within its industry and has very good content.

PR 6’s are at best reserved for mega-sites and sites with a long operating history. A PR 6 is usually major corporate, government and nonprofit web sources and is very difficult to obtain without much linking effort and broad, exhaustive content or, in the alternative, a unique system. A good example of a PR 6 is Legal Zoom which is a mega-source for low-cost legal services started by a group of lawyers and nationally advertised on TV, radio and the net.

PR 7’s and 8’s are usually earned only by institutions of some sort or other, or, major corporations such asGeneral Motors or Delta Airlines.

In the stratosphere of 9’s and 10’s it appears that politics can be played! For example, while Google ranks itself as a PR 10, rival Yahoo! is only given a PR of 9! This ranking brings many chuckles, as it should.

With that system in mind, and the fact that both onsite optimization plus offsite quality linking go into generating a PR, how does a website built in glorious Flash get ranked? For example, a “so-call” SEO guru and expert website cries on its home page, “Don’t Have A Flash Website If You Want Search Engine Results”. This self-anointed expert SEO site goes on to add that “Search engines do not like flash sites.” However, the site is only PR 3 despite its bravado and lack of Flash.

With SEO gurus saying not to use Flash, can Flash be used anyway and still get good PR rankings? The answer is an affirmative “Yes!”

A recent example is Crown SEO’s all-flash website which earned a PR 4 in just 60 days after launching. How did Crown SEO do this bit of search engine optimization? First, the entire site is presented in a robust Flash movie embedded on a page that also contains detailed Meta Tags to describe exactly what the content of the movie is. The Flash includes all of the typical wiz-bang animations that Flash is so loved for plus the movie emphasizes a text-based orientation rather than uncluttered animations so common in Flash sites. But, in addition, below the Flash movie is a complete navigation bar that any search engine (including Google, obviously) can use to spider the entire site since the navbar leads to a simple text page that restates everything in the movie. Also, Crown SEO put in an extensive sitemap that links up both to the movie and to the text in a bit of search engine cross-checking, as it were. As a result, there is no search engine that could miss the sterling quality of the site’s content.

Thus, good content (called onsite optimization) along with good offsite efforts such as search engine registration and link building can easily result in a high PR for anyone’s site who cares more about content and user satisfaction than they do about paid ads and link farms – even if they employ an all-Flash site.

7 Great Computer User Tips – For Windows® Users Only

, 7 Great Computer User Tips – For Windows® Users Only, Frederick Nuetei

An Easy Performance Enhancement

If you’re using the NTFS filing protocol on your system, instead of FAT32, you can get a bit more speed by disabling Windows® Indexing. The downside to this is that searching your drive for a specific file might take a moment or two longer, but everything else should run faster.

Advertisement

To disable this feature open My Computer and then right click on the drive you wish to reset – usually C-drive. Now click on Properties and then uncheck “Allow Indexing Service.” It will take Windows® a few moments to accomplish this task, based on your processor speed. If you have other hard drives, perform the same process for them. After this is done, it’s a good idea to empty the Recycle Bin and then Defragment your hard drive(s).

FREE Software

If you have a system and it does not have an office suite, such as Microsoft Office, and you don’t want to pay several hundred dollars to have one, try Open Office. This is a great alternative to other suites, and it’s free! Simply direct your browser to www.openoffice.org and follow the instructions for downloading and installation. Make no mistake, this free office suite is an extremely powerful set of software tools – easily a match for any competitor.

Internet Explorer (Microsoft’s Internet browser) is unarguably the standard in computers. This is why hackers develop so many malware applications to invade it. If you use a different browser, you have much less chance of an invasion by malicious software. There is a great alternative available, and it’s free. You can download a copy of Firefox at www.mozilla.org/products/firefox. You can even move your Internet Explorer settings into Firefox automatically – so you don’t lose your Favorites, etc.

Laptop Printer Fix

If you’re using a laptop that is running Windows® ME, and you’re having trouble printing through the USB, try this simple fix. Go to the website for the company that manufactures your printer. If you use a Hewlett-Packard, for example, go to www.HP.com and download the appropriate drivers and install them. ME has drivers that recognize the USB printer is present and attached, but not the drivers needed to make it print. Which drivers you download and install will be dependant on your printer. After installing new drivers, update the printer as necessary in the Control Panel.

Save $$$ When Shopping On-line

If you’re making a purchase on-line, and you know the item you want to buy, you can easily compare pricing all across the Internet. This can amount to a very substantial savings.

At this writing, I went to www.mysimon.com and typed in that I wanted to buy a printer: a Canon PIXMA iP4000. The service instantly checked the Internet and returned prices ranging from $62.00 up to $286.00. This kind of price spread is not at all unusual, especially for computers and electronics.

The My Simon website service only checks pricing, it does not provide a platform for purchasing anything, though it does link to such places. It also gives a rating for the sellers and other users’ input regarding their experiences with the company. You can order the results of the search for your product by price, so that you can quickly find the lowest price from the highest rated dealer.

Windows® XP Professional Only

A feature of Windows® XP Professional, that is not available in the Home Edition, is the ability to encrypt files. This encryption prevents others from opening the files in the folder you encrypt. To encrypt one or more a folders, follow these easy steps.

Click Start, then My Documents. Now locate the folder you wish to encrypt and right click on it and choose Properties.

On the General tab, click on Advanced. Put a tick mark in the box for Encrypt Contents to Secure Data. Click okay two times and the confirmation dialog box will appear allowing you to select the folder, the folder and all files, and/or the subfolders within it.

Now you’ll be able to place files in this folder (or folders) and since they’re encrypted, others will not be able to access them.

Internet Safety

, 7 Great Computer User Tips – For Windows® Users Only, Frederick Nuetei

You should never reveal your username or password to anyone who e-mails you and asks for it. This information is frequently asked for by an Internet scheme called “phishing.”

In a common phishing scam, you receive an e-mail that looks quite official. It usually appears to come from a bank or credit card company. A common title for these e-mails is “We need to verify your account information.” Another is “Please logon to your account and verify your settings.” If you do click where instructed, you’ll end up on a site that appears to be the real one. If you fill in the username and password for of your on-line banking account, you can expect serious problems within twenty-four hours.

If you believe that a company or business that you do on-line business with really does require your information, then simply contact them. This way, you will know where you are sending your information, and what it will be used for.

CD Burning Error Fix

Burning music, video, and data CDs has become quite popular over the past few years, and the evolution of the supporting technology has yielded hardware and software that is better than ever – and very reasonably priced. CDs offer a great place to store substantial amounts of data in a small, easily retained format. They also give us new control over aspects of our entertainment.

A relatively common error received during CD burning informs you that the CD cannot be burned, or that there was an error during burning. Of course, you could actually have a defective CD drive, but this is usually not the case.

If you receive a message indicating that your CD cannot be burned, go to the website of your CD drive manufacturer. Look for the list of CD types (manufacturers/numbers) that are compatible with your device. Most often, you’ll find that your CDs are not listed. The two types that seem to have the least difficulty being burned are manufactured by Sony and TDK. These cost a bit more, but they burn very reliably.

, 7 Great Computer User Tips – For Windows® Users Only, Frederick Nuetei

Along the same lines – H-P has introduced a new CD burner. This new burner requires the use of special CD blanks, but after you burn your data into the CD, you can flip it over and close the drive again. Then you can use the laser to burn a title for the CD directly onto the CD itself. It’s new technology, but perhaps it will catch on and we’ll see newer, better such devices in the near future.
