List Of 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 including 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 simple 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.
Tip: If 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.
