Here are few of my SEO strategies for the 2004

1. Move all sites to fix IP's
2. Working on sitemap in order to include all the main and important Pages.
3. Submitting Sitemap to major search engines, hoping to have all pages get indexed.
4. Working on getting more non-google traffic
5. Moving towards full fledged CSS

Lets contribute your strategies so that we can have a list that anyone can use as reference.

Having already done your 5 (cheers self hehe) my 2004 strategies are:

1. Collecting more link exchanges
2. Even more monitoring of web/forums/newsgroups for latest SE tips and news because 2004 is going to see some mighty changes.
3. To try and have weekends off because working 7 days a week is bad for me :)

Publish more sites.
Diversify in every respect (sites, content, traffic).
Get more links :-)

There is a lot of talk about getting more links and higher Pr.

Iam not that sure that it will help too mmuch i have been watching that for awile now and a new site without links can do the same results as the sites with alot of links.

That pagerank system you see with the toolbar, just ignore it, it has nothing to do with quality traffic. There is to much evidence that sites with less pagerank and without links can do fine.

Links can be a very good thing to bring traffic from diffrent sites and make the ses crawl you more often but i dont belive it will help to much in the serp.

# concentrate on page contents and relavent keywords.
# rewrite the dynamic addresses
# link to the sites that are oftenly updated.

From my perspective Florida stressed PR once again (turning the knob away from pure amount of anchor text).

I have 26 web sites I now link exchange with two hours a day every day.

Every single one of them has seen a large PR boost and a massive increase in rank and visitors.

The 26 sites have been added to our link exchanging over the course of a 9 month period and the results came through for each after a 2 month period.

No question in mind LE's works (if done right) :)

Is it because of the high Pr or a well done seo on the page?

Spend time promoting other SE's. I'm tired of being google-tied.

Keep looking at Ink especially PFI issues.

Optimize for new MSN search.

Look at what Yahoo does with their search engines.

Keep a look out for new directories and search engines.

You may not be too far from the truth there. Most search engine revenues come from the sponsored listings. I just hope that they don't start returning a whole page of Overture results.

Try to reduce the dependance on search engines, by building a powerful link network. Though.... doin' this will enhance the SEP's also....!

#2 .. though this isnt a SE strategy, but with Spa^m and other problems, building good CRship is very imp.

Take care, and have a wonderful 2004,

Regards,

Saumil.

Why not?
In short-term, traffic will rise (and so will revenue, hopefully). In long-term, advertising will become cheaper again because surfers will leave in droves.

In the end, advertisements will be marked as such to attract surfers once again and the amount of ads will be reduced.

Long live SEO :-)
