rank them. Basically, these human hires help to classify websites and determine how relevant
they are to specific keyword searches.

information is posted on your website.
4) Limit your ads – If you are creating a website simply to generate extra income from ads, be

to tell that these are your intentions. Always ensure that the first thing visitors see on your page
is valuable content, not ads!
