Things to Avoid to Rank High on Google

An effective website design not only is appealing to the eyes but also to the search engines. This is a list of the most common mistakes that web designers make and why they should be avoided at all cost.
Using tables for the layout
Use divs for layout, not tables. Tables add a lot of unnecessary code to your pages and search engines don’t like them.
Using frames
Don’t ever use frames. Google and Yahoo hate them. It’s a horrible way to structure a website.
Putting text inside images
Search engines can’t read the text inside a picture. You need content to rank high on the search engines and that means plain text.
Making the whole website in Flash
Flash is great for animations and some headers. But when your website is 100% Flash, there is no text for the search engines to read!
Not doing a basic optimization
All the content on a website needs to be optimized for the search engines. Put your keywords in the title, meta keywords tag, meta description tag, alt tags, and H1 and H2 tags. Get a sitemap that links to all the pages on your website. And never stop adding quality content.

Is Link Building Making Blog Spam?

For getting good traffic people do link building. Some times it makes Blog Spam. So, we should have some minimum Knowledge about Link Building. Quality of links is more important than quantity. I don't think there is any rule about exactly how many links one can have coming into one's site. If you are concerned about search engine rules, the thing to keep in mind is whether your incoming links are relevant to your site's theme or not. For example, if your site highlights your experience in teching, get links from teching institutes. Links from sites selling T-Shirts or other are not going to be good and could possibly get you penalized. Be careful to avoid sites which have no content, only links to other sites. These are generally sites built on a domain name related to some type of business. If the owner of the domain name doesn't have any content about the basic concept of Blog and doesn't intend to put any up and just want to sell links to businesses. Google considers such sites spam and allegedly deletes them from its index, although I've found quite a few of them on Google searches. But they're definitely something to avoid. You'd need to seek them out and give them money to list your site so you don't have to worry about being listed in one without your knowledge or consent. You can find out who's linking to your site by going to a Google search page and typing in link:yourdomainname. Don't use www, just the domain name and extension, eg., .com or .org. You can do the same search in other engines but I can't remember which ones have that feature.

Minor Things : Should Do For A Better Traffic

Many people dont consider these things while improving their traffic.
These are small but Great
Find out which websites link to your competitors. And get them to link to you, as well. Join an Affiliate program. But make sure you choose a good one.
Win awards for your website. There are plenty of reputable award sites like webbyawards.com or webaward.org.
Article submission. Submit articles to websites like Ezine Articles or Goarticles. Just Contribute quality, relevant content and send it in.
Write reviews. On sites like Amazon or ePinions.
Become an authority. It is most likely you already are an authority in your business, so answer questions on Yahoo Answers and post your content everywhere.
Post in classifieds sites, like Craigslist and USFreeAds.
Create a Squidoo lens. Advertise one or all of your websites on Squidoo.com.
Submit guides to Work.com. The nifty thing about this one is that if your guides are approved, you can include as many followed links as you want.
Write an article for Wikipedia. Although you may not be able to directly link to your website, include links to other pages that link to yours.
Exchange links. Link to other blogs/websites from yours, but which provide relevant content, and ask them to kindly reciprocate.
Use your forum signature. Please leave your name, message and link! There are lists of directories that allow signature links.
Find websites that mention your company or products but don’t provide the direct HTML link. Simply send them a friendly email and request the link.
These things will definitely help you

Freelancing: Tough i think

Most of the web designers use freelance sites to post a project and some work as freelancers to do some extra money. I have used some of the sites that deal with freelance projects and I have found that is very difficult to get a project. This is a tough market these days and you have to be at your best to stand in the competition. Recently, I came across a new youhaveaproject.com which has interesting projects to work on. You can find or post a project for free and there is no much competition. I am familiar with a number of the freelance sites There are too few jobs for too many people. CrowdSpring is the new site it seems, judging from the publicity they've been getting...http://www.crowdspring.com/%0http:/www.forbes.com/forbes/2009/0216/062.html There are also sites like eLance.com and Guru.com, but what I do like from CrowdSpring is the fact that they actually secure payment from the client ahead of time. If the client gets more than 25 proposals, he has to choose and award the payment! If he simply goes missing, CrowdSpring's panelist chooses a winner and award the designer accordingly. If there is not enough submissions (less than 25 entries), then the client gets his money back. But thats a huge huge difference from other site, and definitely makes encourages me to propose a design! Please note however, that I haven't been using any of these sites much. I used to do work on eLance, but had some bad experiences that led me to quitting the online freelance work. I have to admit however, that I'm very very intrigued by CrowdSpring's business model, and fully intend to try it out when I manage to get some free time. I remember eLance having a subscription fee, which was a major point in me withdrawing from the services eventually. I decided to check and register with CrowdSpring, wanting to compare their price differences. Guess what? CrowdSpring has none! Looking around for hidden costs.. I'll find it somewhere.

Affiliate Programs : A Way To Earn Money

Affiliate Programs is a way to earn money. New internet peole dont know this. But its a great opportunity to make money and I truly believe that you can make Extra income on several Affiliate programs offered today. I do not believe you can make 1000 a day doing nothing ( as many saying ). Another thing to understand is the relationship between your success with the program and your knowledge of the product. You can take a great product and Fail--because you do not have the Passion or Knowledge of the Product to Promote It properly. I suggest you determine a product that you have a great interest in, find any programs related to that. By doing so--you already have the benefit of being able to promote your product to customers while gaining their confidence in you ( because you are an Authority on the subject ).
