Recommended Web Site Resources
By A. Writer
This is where you could
include a list of appropriate web sites.
When producing your list
of recommended web sites it is worth include brief
descriptions for each site as this will allow you to build
in some of your chosen keywords and phrases. You might even
wish to include screen-shots of your selected sites as that
not only confirms to the visitor that they've found your
recommended page, but also makes your page content more
attractive than a simpe text list. Again, keywords can
feature within image ALT-Tags, too.
When linking to external
resources such as third-party web sites, be sure to set
your link properties so that the web page opens in a new
window. Right click the link here
to check out the
property settings - the 'target' should be '_new'.
This ensures that in viewing more information about
the recommended site(s) the visitor does not leave
your site entirely - your site remains open behind
the new window.
you are featuring links to, and/or recommendations of,
particular companies' sites, don't be afraid to ask them
for a 'reciprocal link'. This means that in return for your
recommendation of their site, they place a link back to
your web site upon their own site. This is a crucial part
of link-building and can have a marked impact on your
site's ranking in the search engines.
