Did you know that Comcation
offers DSL Internet access service? DSL (digital subscriber line)
is a proven technology that takes advantage of standard copper telephone
lines to provide secure, reliable, high- speed Internet access.
DSL technology offers dramatic speed improvements to other network
access methods. And unlike traditional dial-up connections, such
as analog modems and ISDN, DSL delivers continuous "always on" access.
That means multimedia-rich websites, email, and other online applications
are immediately available to you, anytime. DSL makes it possible
for you to remain online even while you're talking on the telephone
- without jeopardizing the quality of either connection.
DSL is available in a
spectrum of speeds. Some are best for home use, while others are
designed to accommodate rigorous business demands. Whether for business
or the home, DSL offers unsurpassed value compared to other online
access options. Comcation provides DSL service across a large regional
area extending from North Carolina to Boston and from the Atlantic
coast to Ohio.

- Search Engine Optimization
Optimizing the rank of
your Website in the search engines is a process that involves analyzing
how people will search for your site, and then translating that
information into a format that is search engine friendly. The first
step in ranking higher on search engines is to create three or four,
two to three word search phrases. For example an advertising agency,
AAA Advertising, might decide that people will search for them using
the phrases advertising agency, advertising and marketing, direct
mail, and AAA Advertising. These key word phrases can be incorporated
into the content of the site, titles, and Meta tags.
The next step is creating
a useful, readable description of your site, incorporating your
key word phrases in it, that is less than 225 characters. This description
is what most search engines display when your site is included the
search results. AAA Advertising would want to use a description
like this: AAA Advertising specializes in direct mail, advertising
and marketing for Fortune 500 clients. The description should be
descriptive and avoid using words like "the best."
Thinking like a search
engine will allow you to maximize the relevancy of the key word
phrases that you have chosen. Most search engines try to read pages
intelligently, and rate them for relevancy based on the position,
size and frequency of the key word phrases. Most search engines
will rate a site higher if the keyword phrase is incorporated in
the domain name, AAAadvertising.com. Search engines rank words at
the top of the page to be more relevant than words at the bottom
of the page. Also words on the home page are ranked higher than
keywords found deeper within the site. Key word phrases that are
larger, bold or are contained in hyperlinks are also ranked higher
than if they were displayed in the normal font. The final way search
engines rank sites is by the frequency that the key word phrases
are used. However, they also penalize if the words are used too
frequently. With these guidelines in mind, you should be able to
raise your search engine relevancy and drive more traffic to your
