But yo can do it yourselves with a little care. Follow these SEO guidelines and see how your search engine ranking boosts up. (SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization)

SEO Tips and Tricks

  1. Decide on the keywords for which your website or articles should be listed. There must be a set of keywords for the whole site as well as for each article and there must be good overlap between the keywords fo site as well as the articles.

  2. Select suitable and descriptive title rich in the keywords chosen by you. Further the title (and heading) must be catchy (attractive). Title should be between 20 and 65 characters long! Title should be between 2 and 20 words long!

  3. Take care of the length of the article. The content of the article must be closely related to the title and there must be good repetition of keywords chosen for the article. Document should be between 50 and 1000 words long!

  4. Add images with "alt text". It's always a good idea to add suitable images with each article. Each image must be given a alt text which describes the image. This helps to list your site in image search also. It will be better to host images on your own site if you have unlimited bandwidth. If bandwidth is limited, you can host on free image hosts (or paid if you have many).

  5. Add meta tags (meta description and meta keywords) to your website home page as well for each article. The keywords and description should closely match the content of your website. Please take care to repeat the chosen keyword logically in description and content and highlight them by making them bold or itallic. Description should be between 80 and 155 characters long!. Description should be between 5 and 30 words long!

How to make Physics better?

Shilpa posted a question via the contact form available here:
"Can you suggest me some ways and books to make my physics better?"

She was considering the question as a silly one. But this is a serious question. Many of us do not ask many questions which come into our mind out of the thought that it may be silly or foolish.
"Only those questions are foolish which are not asked"

As the motto of our sister project "AskPhysics" goes.

How to make Physics better?

Here actually the question is not to make Physics better, but it is to make the performance and understanding in Physics better.

Making the fundamentals strong.

The basic principles of Physics must be grasped right from the grassroot level and must be assimilated through practice of related problems.  The wide range of phenomena and applications coming under Physics are all based on a handful of laws and principles.

Practice Problems:

Physics is basically a problem solving discipline and must be taken in that spirit. After learning a concept try to solve as much problems related to it as possible. This well help you to apply what you have learnt and will encourage you to think in multiple dimensions thereby developing your brain functioning. This will be of great help to solve problems of real help too. A person with strong problem solving ability in Physics will be successful in life too. (In handling and solving problems)

Visualize what you learn:

Do not try to learn things as mere "text". Grasping Physics requires lot of imagination. When you learn something, try to visualize it. Draw diagrams to understand things better.

Ask Questions.

In learning (particularly Physics), "Questioning every answer is more important than answering every question". Think deeply on whatever you learn and try to question the new knowledge. Dare asking doubts to your teachers. (If you cannot, post them at or

Collect and solve previous question papers.

This is important to get a better score in exams.

Suggested Books

For developing a strong foundation in Physics.

  • Conceptual Physics: Paul G Hewitt

  • Fundamentals of Physics : Hallidey Resnick Krane

For Problem Solving

  • Concepts of Physics: HC Verma

  • Problems in Physics : IE Irodov

A new Q&A forum for +2Physics is constructing a new interactive forum for students worldwide. The forum took inspiration from the sister project where the students and public asked questions via a form online which went to the email of a teacher and the teacher answered the questions and the question along with the answers were published on to Physics Forumthe site. The project was welcomed by the students and public well. But it posed the problem of large number of questions received daily and the inability to answer all of them. The question could be published only after getting an answer.

Now, with the New Physics Forum, the questions are directly posted to the site and the public can respond to it instantly after approval.

The forum is for all who have something to discuss in relation to Physics. Anyone can join and post question or post answers to questions already asked or add to the already existing answers.

Hope that this forum will give a better platform for all Physics lovers and students who have a lot of unanswered doubts. All questions and answers are closely monitored and screened before publishing on to the site. Spammers will be banned on detection.

The Physics Forum has just started and will be set up with added facilities soon.

SO, join now and start discussing Physics with the rest of the world.
