General:

  • Eighty percent of users click on one of the first three results that come up.
  • SEO is the process of getting your site to appear up at the top in searches.
  • It’s important to separate the good ideas and best practices from the snake oil. There are a lot of cons going on.
  • Good content is key.
  • Quality (of content and material) is more important than quantity (bombardment) for SEO.
  • Google has 200 ingredients in its secret source of searching content. They change them constantly.

Organic methods of SEO:

  • High quality content.
  • Write content for readers, not search engines.
  • Have well structured content.
  • Have clear and specific page titles.
  • Strong use of keywords in body, heads, subheads. But don’t stuff the keywords.
  • Use meta descriptions. Clean urls.

Content:

  • Be unique. Cover what no one else is covering and become an expert.
  • Use short paragraphs and clearly marked sections.
  • Get to point quickly.
  • Make use of links.
  • Use kick-ass title tags. Title tags should have keywords; unique on every page of site; no more than 70 characters.
  • Have high quality incoming urls.
  • Use Facebook and Twitter to gain incoming links. (But don’t self-market.)
  • Build reputation with good content.
  • Be liberal but don’t overdo outbound links.
