SEO Quick Tips List

Updated on May 29, 2013
  • Write useful articles that no one has written about yet.

  • Write quality content. The higher the quality the more likely others will link to you without you asking them to do so.

  • Write evergreen content.

  • Each article, blogpost …etc. should be a minimum of 200 words.

  • Tight niche keywords in meta tags.

  • Write frequently. Best if it is more than once each day.

  • Write around only one general topic (ex.: college education, home entertainment). This way search spiders will know what topic to expect before each crawl of the site.

  • Content is King!

  • Use meta tag generators (they are mostly free).

  • In the coding of the site, put main content as close to top of the page as possible. Ideally right after header CSS tag.

  • Include keywords in title and subtitles.

  • Make your introduction and conclusion have a high keyword density.

  • Use internal linking within your site/ between your articles.

  • Make sure all your pages have an internal link (or more than one).

  • Have search engine friendly URLs.

  • Have dofollow robot tags in your site’s coding.

  • Submit each of your site’s pages to standalone search engines (ones that do not give the results of another search engine).

  • Submit each page to highest PageRank directories (DMOZ, Yahoo directory).

  • Don’t use shady techniques (ex.: link exchanges).

  • Don’t use frames on your site.

  • Include alt text your images. Also speech synthesizers for blind Web users use these.

  • Keep non HTML and CSS languages to the minimum (ex.: JavaScript, Flash).

  • Use a title tag (<title></title>).

  • Use heading tage (<h1></h1>). They are the subtitles in your articles, blogposts, etc.

  • Brake up content with paragraph tag (<p></p>).

  • Add list of keywords at the end of article.

  • Add keywords in header and footer in CSS coding of your site (like a slogan, and a sitemap).

  • Use keywords instead of words like it, they …etc. Don’t over do it.

  • Each keyword should not be more than 1 percent of the word count of your article, blogpost, …etc.

  • Concentrate most of your keywords in the first two paragraphs.

  • On the site, concentrate most of your keywords in the top left section of the site.

  • For competitive keywords, use the synonyms of the words (ex.: hare vs. bunny).

  •  Select long tail keywords that sound like short questions.

  • View the HTML coding of your direct competitors’ sites.

  • Make sure your keywords and content are in sync (if your sites tags are about apples, don’t write about a house).

  • Minimum external -, Maximum internal links on your site!

  • Submit your rewritten articles to article directories ( is best, as they have an RSS content feed for webmasters, so you get indirect backlinks (link to your article, which links to your site)).

  • Submit your pictures to

  • Submit your videos to

  • Add names of people and places as metatags.

  • Have a TLD domain that matches your target market (.us in USA, .ca in Canada)
