You know when you first make a web page, and you’re required to make a name? For instance: www.fedupwithed.com/EXAMPLE
So, I’ve found out that there is no way to change what you first wrote. I have a page that’s about eating disorder awareness and it’s URL is www.fedupwithed.com/aboutus
ABOUT US? It’s about eating disorders! Ahhh.
My question is….
Is this going to affect my SEO?
Because if it is…
I should probably make all new pages on my site.
But that would take a long time! And a lot of effort.
Does this affect anything?
I have Microsoft Office Live. So no, it’s not one that just makes up random codes such as www.website.com/328957shf. It’s more like, I got to choose it, but once I do that and change my mind…There’s no going back. (Apparently). It’s weird? I don’t know. And yeah, I know that SEO is more about keywords and less about the URL, however, I was just curious as to whether this would make a big difference or not.
Having important keywords in the URL (for each page) helps a lot. Plan out your pages before you build the site or delete the page you built and move everything over to a page with a URL like fedupwithed.com/eating-disorders/anorexia-bulimea-cure or something like that. Don’t be afraid to have 10 to 12 keywords in the URL. Use dashes or / to separate the words for best effect. Make sure the title of the page, headlines and first words in your paragraphs have the same keywords and you will get great results. Check out the location pages for thecolemaninstitute.com. They have been optimized for the geographic location and the drugs and treatments with titles, URLS, etc and get first page results in most cases with very little other SEO.
I am revamping a website with an OK Google ranking to try and improve page rank. I run the site with PHP with SE friendly links (no query strings). The base-names of the URLs were "index.html", but I can call them anything, and I need to know if I have some of the pages marked as "index.html" and other named "video_dvd.html" that bring up the same page will be considered SE spam. Example:
All three of these links would go to the same page, as the PHP only reads the ‘catalog’ and ’122′ part of the URL to lookup the information from the DB. I’ve kept things uniform by having the same types of links on one page (for example, the index page has index.html links, and the product directory has the ‘video_dvd.html’ links.
Is this type of SEO kosher for Google and the like, or should I keep one uniform link for each page?
this will cause duplicate content. and Google will only give value to one of them…
if your page/catalog/122/index.html is talking about action DVD.
also, make you redirect the old page to new page…(301 redirect only)
Link building strategies I am interested in, not link farms as that is black hat seo but fair and simple link exchange
If you really want to get into the underbelly of some awesome SEO techniques, especially link building, I would read the link building section of Stuntdubl’s SEO Playbook – and make sure you read every article he’s linked to regarding link building:
Another reliable resource is SEOmoz.org. They have a link building book for sale and they are extremely reliable and informative. (I haven’t purchased it yet. I intend to within the next few days!)
Affordable Search Engine Optimization
Pay Per Click Account Management
I already rank #1 for some of my keywords and that still doesn’t bring in the amount of traffic I need. I write articles, I blog and still get less than 100 unique visitors a day. I do not spam or use any "black hat" SEO techniques, and yet I can’t seem to generate the traffic. Can anyone tell me what has really worked for them? I mean REALLY worked, don’t give me any link exchange or click exchange junk. I am looking for true content related ideas that my visitors will appreciate and find useful.
First you have to check to see how much you keywords generate search engine traffic. Than you have to ONLY link with similar themed sites and we ONLY link to sites that have a Page Rank of 3 or higher. Lastly Have lots of GOOD USEFUL content and update your content at least monthly!
This is what my Realtor does and he is generating over 12,000 to 16,000 unique visitors per month!
His site has Appx. 8,000 inbound links.
So, this works, but, like anything else, you MUST WORK at it! There is no EZ way to generate GOOD traffic. There are many scams to send traffic to you site. Like 5,000, 10,000 or 50,000 visitors in a week or two for $50, $75! All these do is generate machine hits, so it will look like real people, but, you will generate NO business.

I have a bunch of domains structured kind of like this:
I want each of those domains to contain basically the exact same information, with links that go to my natural-cure-system-for-sale.com website where they can purchase my product. I bought all the different domains so that searches for "natural cure", "home cure", etc. will pull up the respective domain name in the organic results, (and then display the page title and summary info for that site)
I know that identical content on different domains can get me banned from search engines. Is there a "white hat" way to achieve what I want to do so that I am not banned?
You could have all of the names re-directed to your main site.
