Slingshot Your Website Into Top Search Rankings by Wesley LeFebvre

When you are ready to build a website for your business there are a a few simple search engine optimization tips you should consider as soon as you purchase your domain name. Implementing a few things correctly, right from the beginning, can slingshot your website into top search rankings within just a few months of launching.
These are my top ten highly effective SEO tips which you can apply to your website for free:
1. Choose a short descriptive URL with your primary keywords in it (if possible).
2. UPDATED: Only target 1-3 major keywords on each page.
3. Separate keywords with hyphens in the url – with the domain name being the exception, preferably.
4. Use Keywords in your navigation links where they make sense, however, like always, don’t overuse them.
5. Optimize your title tag – a good rule of thumb is up to 70 characters with your most important keywords first. Separate phrases with a “|”.
6. Optimize your meta description tag – One or two sentences max; using a keyword variant or two.
7. Provide a substantial amount content on each page and use a few keyword variants within the content.
8. Install Google Analytics.
9. Add a blog to your website and post to it at least once a week – don’t use a separate domain name for your blog, make it a sub-directory or sub-domain and fully integrated into your main site.
10. Get links pointed to your website using keywords in the anchor text related to the page they link to – AboutUs.org, DMOZ.org and sending a free press release are a few good ways to start.
