Ten best search engine optimization tips

By Jakob Jelling
http://www.sitetube.com

When you are trying to optimize your website for search engines, the first techniques that you should consider are those that apply to most of the search engines. Of course, some of the search engines have the optimization techniques that apply specifically to them, but many optimization methods that you will use will help the ranking of your website with multiple search engines. This article will describe the ten best SEO (search engine optimization) tips that you can use while optimizing your website.

Useful content - Content is KING!
Each one of your web pages needs to contain some type of useful content for the visitor. The search engine will consider the web pages with useful content to be more important ones. Also your visitors are more likely to return to your website if they were satisfied with the content provided to them.

Link popularity
One of your key actions is to inspect your internal link organization and make sure that you link to other pages included in your website and there are no broken or irrelevant links. Also try to get other high-ranked websites to link to your website. For example, you can try to exchange links with other websites.

Keywords
Select the keywords that relate to the main theme of your web page. However, do not peak the keywords that will result in a lot of competition. Something that is regularly searched for but closely related to your web pages will be your best choice.

Keyword density
Make sure to include your keywords and key phrases in the text in such a way that you have a proper keyword density.

Title tag
You need to create an appropriate title tag for each of you web pages. The title needs to represent the contents of your web page and be interesting enough to get the attention of your visitors. Make sure to include your main keyword or key phrase in the title.

Meta tags
The meta description tags need to present an accurate description of your website and should include the important keywords that you believe visitors will use in their search. Do not just place all the keywords in the meta tag. The description should be meaningful to the visitor.

Graphics
Try to have more text content on your web pages and less graphics, since search engines will evaluate only the text content. Also, if you have a lot of graphics, try to place the text and keywords closer to the top of the web page.

Site maps
Create a site map that will have a simple text link to the most important pages of your website. Also include the link to the site map from every page. This can help you to get a higher ranking.

Directories submission
Make sure that you submit your website to various search engines and human-reviewed directories. If it is possible, also use the submission systems where you need to pay for the submission process.

Experiment
Try different optimizations techniques and see which ones work better for you. Different search engines use different algorithms, so the technique that might succeed with one search engine may not succeed with another.
