So it isn’t unusual for people to ask me,  “Can’t you just give me some tips on SEO?” So here they are 10 Free Tips on SEO!

These are for those that are 100% interested in knowing what to do, and may go over the heads of some… but Contact us and we will help

  1. Insert Keywords into the title of your page, and in the keywords meta fields
  2. Use the same keywords as anchor text for other links on your page (see our little “Contact Us” link above)
  3. Use the keywords, that you select on the page itself… remember search engines aren’t magic, and can’t search for something that isn’t there
  4. Don’t use the same keywords and title tag on every page
  5. Don’t spend too much time (or spam) your title tags… keep them short, concise, and to the point.
  6. Don’t link to link farms… these can cause you to get Banned from Google, Bing, and almost everyone else
  7. Don’t use doorway pages. These are pages that are more or less facades of a page. They may hold the user there for 30 seconds, be loaded with keywords and links, and then launch you somewhere else. (they Wikipedia defines them here)
  8. Always use “title” tags for your links. These title tags are searchable (and more importantly help those that are vision impaired and use screen readers)
  9. Use Alt tags. These are the same concept for the title links above, but are for images. Another great thing for screen readers.
  10. Always follow the appropriate model for submitting to a search engine. Bing limits this, and google considers it spam if you do it too much (then they ban you). So the best bet is to ensure that you have an automatic sitemap.xml program like phpSiteMapNG

So there you have it. 10 simple things (if you know what you are doing) to improve your site’s SEO.
