So keep this in mind while sleeping also.

3)robots.txt file(robots exclusion file) : robots.txt file is a simple text file that is located inside root directory of the browser. It’s very important to have this file in your root directory because if
it's not found then the search spider may not crawl your site even. It’s of great power as with this file you can allow or disallow the search bots to index or not to index certain pages from your website/blog to search engines.

4)Get good back links : Backlinks are the simple and easy method to gain popularity for your websiteblog. It’s just a way to get noticed by more and more people and search engines.

Search engines are clever enough and they will treat these links as SPAM and you may loose your ranking as well,so keep this in mind. Good quality links needs patience and time.

5)Let's be Social : Facebook and Twitter are the best social networking websites following which can widespread your website to a different level. Today is the time where just being social can make you even more popular. Now a days people can forget to
