One simple question: do you want
more visitors on your website?
If your answer is YES then
save this page to your harddrive and read all information when you have time. It will take
less than 30 minutes of your time and will help you get more visitors on your website. As
a regular websurfer I visit many company sites owned by companies spending thousands of
dollars on paper ads and expensive tradeshows and then I check their pagecounter and many
times there are only a few hundreds of hits registered on their website.
If this is the case then your
webmarketing is not good. You can have the best products and website of the world but if
no one can find them you loose a lot of potential business. Our website has had over
300.000 unique visitors in less than 3 years time with a marketing budget of less than
$500 a month. But by being creative and use of all available marketing options we have
managed to get you today on our site. You probably found our site through a link, search
engine, banner ad, company directory or newsgroup posting.
My advice is simple, use 50% of your
current advertisement/promotional budget for webmarketing and webadvertising. You will get
more value for your money and by linking to your site you can inform the potential
customer better than using normal media for less money.
The international market is changing and
even small companies can now enter the attractive e-commerce market. Asian companies are

Companies on the web will have a global audience and a bigger market to sell to. But good
webmarketing will be essential to be successful in this fast changing market.

metatags to your site
A lot of search engines spider your site. What they do is simple reading the text in your
and adding it to their database. But the information they use is often missing because the
webmaster has never heard about socalled metatags. Metatags are extra codes added to the
header of your html page. An example of the page you are now viewing:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;
<meta name="author" content="R.Fonteine - www.ugamedia.com">
<meta name="Content-Type" content="text/html;
<meta name="description" content="BizEurope Resource, European
import / export site">
<meta name="distribution" content="global">
<meta name="keywords" content="export, import, EXPORT, IMPORT,
<meta name="resource-type" content="document">
<meta name="robots" content="all">
<title>BizEurope Resource, European import / export site - UGA Media
The most important lines are in red and
have to be on your site for good results in search engines. Choose some good keywords and
a good title and description because they are used by these socalled spider engines like
Altavista and Hotbot.

code for you try this
Put the code between the lines
<head> and </head>
|Exchange of links
A lot of work but worth trying out and it's free.
submission to search engines / link directories
You can submit your site by hand (if you
have a lot of time) or you can use a professional website submission service like our own submit service.
your rankings in leading search engines
Many search engines use socalled spiders (robots) which will scan your site for
description, keywords etc. This information is then added to their database. Many
beginners forget to add a title to their page so if you bookmark their page it's says
"Homepage" or "New page". You will understand that your site will be
difficult to find if someone has built up hundreds of bookmarks.
Also if you forget to add socalled metatags to
your page many people will never find your page while use popular search engines. More
info about creating metatags can be found on TagGen - An Essential Web Site Promotion Tool,
whether you are looking to increase the traffic to your site or gain control over your
intranet you will need meta tags. This link describes how to promote your web site with
the TagGen meta data composer.
