Roughly every two weeks the search engines "crawl" most websites on the internet with programs called "spiders". These spiders look for a number of attributes on each website in order to place the website properly in search results. The attributes these spiders are looking for are:
Title Tags: These are located on the top left portion of your browser, they help to identify websites to the spiders.
Meta Tags: These are embedded in the code of your website. They act as identifiers to the type of website they are crawling.
Inbound Links: These are links from other websites, which allows the search engine spiders to easily travel from site to site, enabling better access for the spiders to categorize a website.
Site Map: This is a web page with a link to every other page on a website, which helps to direct the spiders to other pages on a website.
Search Engine Friendly Coding: This is web design coding designed specifically with search engine spiders in mind.
Unique Content: Duplicate content doesn't work with search engine spiders. It can make a website difficult to get placed in the search engines. Content that is unique is kind with search engine spiders.
Variations in Existing Content: This is to keep a website dynamic, because it is beneficial to refresh the website content. This helps to increase your search engine positioning.
Anchor Text: These are links within the content that lead to other pages on your site.
