10 NEW Blues Lesson Series

It’s important to know what you are trying to attract, as well as how search engines find their pages and determine their rating. There are several steps that are part of a search engines process until they get the results pop up on a searchers screen.

The first of these steps are the web crawlers or spiders, or for Google GoogleBot. These programs search the entire internet by following links. They basically jump from page to page and index everything that they see. As there are billions of web pages up at any given time, a web crawler cannot regularly visit the page to review any changes made to it, they pass by only once every one or two months. So, although it’s very important to keep your webpage updated, do not get upset if you don’t see the updates of your webpage affect your ranking right away.

It’s also very important to be aware of what web crawlers or spiders see on your website and are able to index. This is vital to your ranking. Primarily, the main thing that they see is content, or text. This means make sure that your website is full of useful information that has relevant keywords to help the crawlers index it better. Other things that web crawlers see are metatags and links, so have plenty of those, of course, with useful keywords. Keep in mind that crawlers cannot see flash movies, music, java scripts, images, and frames.

The following step to a search engines process to finding the results to searchers inquiries is indexing. What indexing is is basically as crawlers jump from page to page they collect all the data they read, and store it in large databases and organize them. They identify the major keywords, metatags, and links in each webpage and sort them.


How To Master Films And SEO Movie Marketing

10 NEW Blues Lesson Series

The final outlet goal for a movie by filmaker will decide the amount of money you need to soend for professional video masters (digital betacam) of a completed film and trailer. When it comes to landing a deal with a distribution company, it is inevitable to have professional video masters done. Selling your movie without signed film contracts and delivered masters is impossible for everyone.

You can get quotes by calling around to video facilities or post production houses asking what the cost would be to have a Digital Betacam master (NTSC and PAL) made of your movie along with a 100% Quality Control Report. Film and video transfers work great if you shot on 8mm, Super 8, 16mm, or 35mm. The facility will need to know the final running time of the movie even if you haven’t shot or finished editing your movie yet. The earlier you can get an estimate on what this will cost, the better. This will help make your final movie budget bulletproof.

A good rule of thumb is to estimate a 90-minute running time when asking for a quote on video mastering with a QC report. When you receive the best quote include that amount in the budget. Self-distributing your movie allows more flexibility in creating video masters, which reduces your post production expenses. For filmmakers without technical resources to produce a quality master in-house that will be used to author, dub and replicate DVDs of their movie a video facility or post house will still be needed. But unlike with a traditional distribution deal you won’t have to worry about the expense of having a Digital Betacam master (NTSC and PAL) done accompanied by a Quality Control Report.

Now more and more filmmakers have in-house home computer systems with the technical capabilities to edit, DVD author, and burn their own store ready DVDs on NTSC or PAL formats. In essence it can be seen as a microcosm of how large Hollywood studios work to get a film to consumers. Filmmakers that have this ability save money in post production.

It is worth mentioning that with a traditional distribution deal in-house DVDs created by filmmakers are rarely the final DVD that is released for sale by the distributor. They prefer to use digital masters to author their own DVD so they can include their company logo and other film trailers. Other filmmakers are embracing the attitude their films are going to be only offered instantly through a digital download. There isn’t a desire to have their films available on DVD. This lowers post production costs by reducing the need of having a Digital Betacam master.

Digital distribution gives independent filmmakers power to control how their work is distributed and sold online. They can make their movie available for instant download to viewers around the world. Many business savvy indie producers are making money by selling movies directly to consumers without the assistance of traditional distributors.

A key to their success is SEO movie marketing techniques that give their film a strong online presence, while increasing visibility with films fans in different genres. Using search engine optimization (SEO) tactics to generate traffic and create a fan base for your movie is the only way to market effectively with little or no budget. Learning to create an Internet buzz about your movie will get your film seen and sold online. This is indie filmmaker Sid Kali typing JUMP CUT:

This is not only reader friendly for humans, but also for search engines, since as I mentioned, it takes longer to spider a PDF than HTML.

4. Check the PDF file format version number and make sure it’s readble by SEs. Typically, the version to use is Acrobat 5/Adobe XMP (PDF V. 1.4 or 1.5).
