SEO Tips – 25 of Them…

Posted on February 23, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

What follows are some of the most important SEO Tips that you need to follow in order for your website to get seen in the search engines for the keywords you’re targeting.

1. Choose a keyword related to your content for your web page. Remember that your web page and your website are not ranked as one. Your web page will be ranked of its own accord.

2. Write unique and relevant content related to that keyword.

3. Use that keyword in your title tag.

4. Use that keyword in a header tag. Preferably an

tag.

5. Use words and phrases related to the keyword you chose and use them throughout the content of your web page.

6. Write a description for the web page that contains the keyword you have chosen.

7. Do not keyword stuff your web pages. (Keyword stuffing means that you use the same keywords multiple times throughout the content of your page).

8. Do not use underhanded techniques in order to get better rankings in the search engines. This is oftentimes referred to as “black hat SEO” or even “gray hat SEO”.

9. Within the content, link to another page on your site using keyword-focused anchor text.

10. Do not submit your web page to link farms. Link farms are website set up specifically for the purpose of allowing anyone to post links.
