Strategically place keywords in textual content.

You might have heard of the keywords meta tag which was, at one point, the magic solution for ranking highly for keywords. (This was a special hidden tag that you could place in the head of your html document and list your desired keywords for a webpage.) However, after it was abused by spammers, it no longer has any effect on big search engines such as Google and Yahoo.

However, there are other ways to let search engines know which keywords you want to rank for. This is done by placing your keywords in multiple locations throughout a page. Some locations include paragraphs, headings, and links, as well as the page title and url.

While doing so, it is also important to avoid unrealistic repetition of your keywords, lest search engines label your website as using Black SEO tactics.

Acquire links from high quality websites.

Search engines, namely Google, place a high premium on inbound links. This means that your page rank may increase if you receive links from other websites.

Some tips for obtaining links include posting links on forums or social bookmarking sites, requesting link exchanges from relevant websites, and publishing quality content in the hope that other webmasters will link to you. It is also a good idea to submit your website to directories.

 

Search engine optimization is an ongoing process. To be successful, you will need to regularly optimize your website, seek inbound links, and publish new content. And while you will not see immediate results, over time, regular effort will enable you to improve your search engine rankings and increase your traffic.
