Real Basic SEO Tips

10 very basic SEO tips for you today ....
  1. Understand what a user might type into a search engine to find your products/services - these are your keywords/keyphrases.
  2. ALWAYS use ALT & TITLE TAGS on everything - ensure that your keywords are in these tags.
  3. NEVER have a link that reads "click here" or "for more info" the link should read something like "For my tips on SEO click this link" - simply because you need to get a keyword in that link text.
  4. Use HTML Tags like H1, H2 etc - these are not only useful from a usability perspective but thet also help search engines prioritise and understand the information on your page.
  5. Use Google Webmaster Tools to help understand if Google has any problems with your site. Verify the website and install Google Analytics
  6. Add your website to as many search engine indexes as you can
  7. Backlinks are important but remember that a backlink from a large, respected website is worth hundreds of backlinks from unknown/low user websites.  So concentrate on popular sites for backlinks.
  8. Image names should be present and relevant "picture 1" means nothing, "Picture of the Batman leaping from car." will be indexed by search engines and is useful if anyone tries viewing your site using an audio reader.
  9. A sitemap is important for SEO - make sure you have one.
  10. Keywords and Meta Tags should be concise and unique on each page - concise means concise!  Limit yourself to no more that about 8-10 keywords
