Read Search Engines Finding Me by Rick R @ 4/2/2012
Onder asks: I was wondering if you could give me some advice regarding purchasing multiple domains unrelated to type of business to (main website) with high hits to be redirected to my original website for the purpose of geting traffic to increase sales or is it just as affective to simply add keywords to website for people to find me. any advice will be much appreciated.

My reply:

This really isn't a FrontPage question, it's more of an SEO (Search Engine Optimization) question, but I can give you my advice.

If you want to be found in search engines, the BEST way is to have PROPER, RELEVANT META TAGS for your site. Make sure you have good TITLE, KEYWORDS, and DESCRIPTION tags. Make sure you use your keywords throughout your pages (but not so much to appear spammy).

Try to get links from a couple of other REPUTABLE and well-trafficked sites. Participating in message forums related to your business that allow you to include links is a great way to start building traffic. That's one of the reasons I volunteer answering tech questions on several different other sites.

The search engines are on to that old trick of setting up multiple domain names and creating a "link farm" back to a single central site. The NUMBER of incoming links to your main web site aren't anywhere near as important as the QUALITY of those links. You're better off with ONE good incoming link from a high-traffic site than 1000 links from crappy ones.

Don't forget SOCIAL networking. Set up a Facebook page and Twitter feed. If your business lends itself well to VIDEO, then definitely upload a few pieces to YouTube.

Hope this helps.
