Your own Google Search Page (Self Contained)

Now I’m going to share with you a google search page of your own.  You can Edit the page, add links, or whatever else you like. Below is the code. This page will do a google search and return the results on the same page.

Just copy/paste the html below and insert it into a .html page. After that, you can give it a custom look if you like, add links, or cobrand it to look like your website. After you make it your own search page, you can also save it as the default search page for your pc or business computers simply by opening the page and in your browser click on tools/options/Click on the main tab, then click on “use current page” and it will be the default home page when users open a web browser on your designated computer. This can be useful for many applications because you can at any time edit the page on your server and the changes will be seen when the page is accessed by anyone that has this url saved as their default homepage.

The only change you need to make is this:

Look for this code below (form action=”http://www.livenetnow.com/search.html” id=”cse-search-box”>) And change the URL from (http://www.livenetnow.com/search.html) To what your naming your search page.

Parsing PHP in HTML

I have found a neat little trick I am going to share with you. It involves using PHP in HTML documents and this can be very helpful in many ways. Below I will explain the process and why it can be so important.

First let me talk about a few reasons why.

If you are a developer that needs to change a website to php from html.  This change can lose you valuable links to pages that will now have .php instead of .html and you will lose these links. ( Part of what I will explain will change this effect)

If you want to streamline design and have a common footer or common header.(Easily place a php include tag and place anything you want anywhere and just edit one page.)

If you want to use php stats. Now you can run php in a .html page. The list could go on and on.

The process is simple:
(NOTE: Most servers will allow this to work, if not check with your server administrator.)

First We make a .htaccess File

  1. Look for the file named .htaccess. If it’s not there, create a blank page using NotePad or Dreamweaver and save it as .htaccess
  2. Edit this file by adding the following lines:

code:                   –>AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .htm .html<– (copy paste between the arrows)

Save and close the .htaccess file. Upload it to your webserver or ftp  (to your WWW root) and your done.

Now we create a test page to see if its working on your server.

  1. We need to test it so lets make a test file.
  2. Open notepad or dreamweaver and save a file called test.html
  3. Now open this file and Insert the html below.
<html>
<head></head>
<body>
  <h1>
  <?php echo "Carlo from LiveNetNow taught me a neat trick"; ?>
  </h1>
</body>
</html>


(Now Upload this file test.html to your server and go to it via
 your web browser and there it should be!)

You now can have HTML pages that are run like php and have all
the capabilities of parsing php in them. 

This opens the doors to numerous capabilities and I will be
sharing a few with you in later posts be sure to come back and learn some techniques.

If your webhost doesnt allow php then you should shop around. 

Have Fun Coding,

Google and Meta-Tags

Meta-Tags and Google
by Carlo DiTucci

When writing and maintaining accurate meta tags (e.g., descriptive titles and robots information), you help Google and other search engine spiders to more accurately crawl, index and return your site in search results. Meta tags provide information to all sorts of clients, such as browsers and search engines. Just keep in mind that each client will likely only interpret the meta tags that it uses, and ignore the rest (although they might be useful for other reasons).

Here’s how Google would interpret meta tags of this sample HTML page:

<!DOCTYPE …><head>
<title>Web Design by Live Net Now LLC<title> utilized by Google, accuracy is valuable to webmasters
<meta name=”description” content=”Professional web design for small and corporate sized business.”> utilized by Google, can be shown in our search results
<meta name=”revisit-after” content=”14 days”> not utilized by Google or other major search engines
<META name=”verify-v1″ content=”e8JG…Nw=” /> optional, for Google webmaster tools
<meta name=”GoogleBot” content=”noOdp”> optional
<meta …>
<meta …>
</head>

<meta name=”description” content=”A description of the page”>
This tag provides a short description of the page. In some situations this description is used as a part of the snippet shown in the search results. While the use of a description meta tag is optional and will have no effect on your rankings, a good description can result in a better snippet, which in turn can help to improve the quality and quantity of visitors from our search results.

<title>The title of the page</title>
While technically not a meta tag, this tag is often used together with the “description.” The contents of this tag are generally shown as the title in search results (and of course in the user’s browser when visiting the page or viewing bookmarks).

<meta name=”robots” content=”…, …”>
<meta name=”googlebot” content=”…, …”>
These meta tags control how search engines crawl and index the page. The “robots” meta tag specifies rules that apply to all search engines, the “googlebot” meta tag specifies rules that apply only to Google. Google understands the following values (when specifying multiple values, separate them with a comma):

  • noindex: prevents the page from being indexed
  • nofollow: don’t follow links from this page when looking for new pages to crawl
  • nosnippet: don’t show a snippet of this page when displaying it in the search results
  • noodp: don’t use text from ODP (The Open Directory Project a.k.a. dmoz.org) to generate a title or snippet for this page
  • noarchive: don’t display a “Cached” link for this page in the search results
  • unavailable_after:[date]: remove this page from the search results after the specified date and time

The default rule is “index, follow” — this is used if you omit this tag entirely or if you specify content=”all.”

<meta name=”google” content=”notranslate”>
When we recognize that the contents of a page are not in the language that the user is likely to want to read, we often provide a link in the search results to an automatic translation of your page. In general, this gives you the chance to provide your unique and compelling content to a much larger group of users. However, there may be situations where this is not desired. By using this meta tag, you can signal that you do not wish for Google to provide a link to a translation for this page. This meta tag generally does not influence the ranking of the page for any particular language.

<meta name=”verify-v1″ content=”…”>
This Google webmaster tools-specific meta tag is used on the top-level page of your site to verify ownership of a site in webmaster tools (alternatively you may upload an HTML file to do this). The content value you put into this tag is provided to you in your webmaster tools account. Please note that while the contents of this meta tag (including upper and lower case) must match exactly what is provided to you, it does not matter if you change the tag from XHTML to HTML or if the format of the tag matches the format of your page.

<meta http-equiv=”Content-Type” content=”…; charset=…”>
This meta tag defines the content-type and character set of the page. When using this meta tag, make sure that you surround the value of the content attribute with quotes; otherwise the charset attribute may be interpreted incorrectly. If you decide to use this meta tag, it goes without saying that you should make sure that your content is actually in the specified character set.

<meta http-equiv=”refresh” content=”…;url=…”>
This meta tag sends the user to a new URL after a certain amount of time, sometimes used as a simple form of redirection. This kind of redirect is not supported by all browsers and can be confusing to the user. If you need to change the URL of a page as it is shown in search engine results, we recommended that you use a server-side 301 redirect instead.

(X)HTML and Capitalization
Google can read both HTML and XHTML-style meta tags (regardless of the code used on the page). In addition, upper or lower case is generally not important in meta tags — we treat <TITLE> and <title> equally. The “verify-v1” meta tag is an exception, it’s case-sensitive.

revisit-after Sitemap lastmod and changefreq
Occasionally webmasters needlessly include “revisit-after” to encourage a search engine’s crawl schedule, however this meta tag is largely ignored. If you want to give search engines information about changes in your pages, use and submit an XML sitemap. In this file you can specify the last-modified date and the change-frequency of the URLs on your site.

Have Fun With Your Pages,

SEO | What is SEO?

What is S.E.O?
by Carlo DiTucci

Taken from LiveNetNow.com:

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via “natural” (“organic” or “algorithmic”) search results. Typically, the earlier a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, and industry-specific vertical search engines.As an Internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engines work and what people search for. Optimizing a website primarily involves editing its content and HTML coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines.

Is your website in the top search engines? Your competitors sites are! LiveNetNow knows the techniques, tips, and indexing strategies to gain a competitive edge against your competitors.
We have professional search engine methodologist’s with over ten years of experience in this field. If you allow us to optimize your website properly you will have better web positioning.

If you already have a website and just want to find out how to improve your website ranking in the search engines, we can help you. Our web marketing strategies are all proven and ethical, we do not ever spam url’s or use bulk email. Those types of marketing will cause harm to your websites page ranking.

Optimization Strategy
This is actually how the site will actually get optimized. Determining which pages will get optimized and selecting appropriate keywords are all part of this process.

Search Engine Analysis
Next we determine how the search engines are currently indexing web sites. This takes maky hours of research and effort. Search engines all use different algorithms.

Web site Re-Development
Content and graphics for the information pages will need to be developed. We can usually use the content on the current site with some minor modifications.

Keyword Research
This timely phase may be one of the most important. We use all of our resources to determin which key-words can be properly implemented. Key word structure plays a strong part in your placement.

Meta-Tag Generation
Eight tags need to be generated in order for each page to be fully optimized: Title, Meta Keywords, Meta Description, Comment, Alt Logo, Alt. Graphics, Body and Headers.

Search Engine Submission
After all the tags are implemented, we will register each page individually with all of the top search engines including AltaVista, Lycos, HotBot, Infoseek, GoTo, Google, Excite, AOL, MSN, Northern Light and others.

Maintenance
After we register your site we ensure that your site was listed in the various engines. For further optimization after the initial launch, we study your traffic loggs to determin what techniques need to be applied for further optimization.

How Google Ranks a Web Page 2009

Hello my name is Carlo DiTucci from Live New Now LLC a Web Design company in Orlando Florida. I am the Head of the SEO department and I am constantly asked, ” How can I get listed in google”. The answer is a bit more complicated than people think so im going to try and shed a little light on the subject.

Google is a webmasters best friend and shares all their information with us. To begin let me quote some very important information that google provides on this subject.

From Google:

” We stand alone in our focus on developing the “perfect search engine,” defined by co-founder Larry Page as something that, “understands exactly what you mean and gives you back exactly what you want.” To that end, we have persistently pursued innovation and refused to accept the limitations of existing models. As a result, we developed our serving infrastructure and breakthrough PageRank™ technology that changed the way searches are conducted.

From the beginning, our developers recognized that providing the fastest, most accurate results required a new kind of server setup. Whereas most search engines ran off a handful of large servers that often slowed under peak loads, ours employed linked PCs to quickly find each query’s answer. The innovation paid off in faster response times, greater scalability and lower costs. It’s an idea that others have since copied, while we have continued to refine our back-end technology to make it even more efficient.

The software behind our search technology conducts a series of simultaneous calculations requiring only a fraction of a second. Traditional search engines rely heavily on how often a word appears on a web page. We use more than 200 signals, including our patented PageRank™ algorithm, to examine the entire link structure of the web and determine which pages are most important. We then conduct hypertext-matching analysis to determine which pages are relevant to the specific search being conducted. By combining overall importance and query-specific relevance, we’re able to put the most relevant and reliable results first.”

Now that you have a bit of an understanding of what google is trying to do, let me give you more information on the actuall process. There are two main processes lets learn about them.

From Google:

PageRank Technology: PageRank reflects our view of the importance of web pages by considering more than 500 million variables and 2 billion terms. Pages that we believe are important pages receive a higher PageRank and are more likely to appear at the top of the search results.

Hypertext-Matching Analysis: Our search engine also analyzes page content. However, instead of simply scanning for page-based text (which can be manipulated by site publishers through meta-tags), our technology analyzes the full content of a page and factors in fonts, subdivisions and the precise location of each word. We also analyze the content of neighboring web pages to ensure the results returned are the most relevant to a user’s query.

Our innovations don’t stop at the desktop. To give people access to the information they need, whenever and wherever they need it, we continue to develop new mobile applications and services that are more accessible and customizable. And we’re partnering with industry-leading carriers and device manufacturers to deliver these innovative services globally. We’re working with many of these industry leaders through the Open Handset Alliance to develop Android, the first complete, open, and free mobile platform, which will offer people a less expensive and better mobile experience.

Now you know how google ranks a website.  Read my next blogs on google webmaster tools and search.  I hope this information is useful to you and I plan on sharing alot more with you.

Enjoy Your Day,

Carlo DiTucci
