The most important thing that you should remember about SEO is that you won’t achieve it overnight. It takes weeks or months depending on search engines.

Here are the basic strategies that you should follow:

  • Selecting the correct keywords or keyword phrases.
  • Each page should have its own descriptive title tag, description tag and keywords.
  • The title tag of each page should contain the best keyword or keyword phrase.
  • Use header tags (h1,h2,…) in the body of your page text. Using header tags indicates good outline form.
  • Use bold tags (b or strong)for the keyword or keyword phrases.
  • Search engines don’t index images. Use alt tags for images or hyperlinks. This will allow the search engines to recognize all your content.
  • Don’t stuff pages with useless information. Use the best keyword or keyword phrase and keep them short. The best keyword saturation is about 1-2%.
  • Include quality, informative content on each page and keep your content fresh and updated.
