Easy steps for SEO

October 8, 2010

While I always say content is king there are easy steps for search engine optimization (SEO). First take a look at your keywords. Make sure you are using the right ones and if you are not sure, take a look at your competitors. Next, meta tags and description text. Again you want to make sure these match your keywords and target the market you are aiming for. Basically if you can ensure that you are coding your site correctly then these are simple steps and are part of the design process. URL text is another thing that can help snag incoming links and search results. Being descriptive and accurate is key. While pictures and flash animations are nice, not all browsing will occur with an up to date browser. Take the time to enter alternate text for those image files and fancy animations. This will also help those who are still living with IE6 (or Netscape). Even robots will pick up those tags so every bit helps.
