Handy Tips on Search Engine Optimization

Every site owner’s goal is to get his, or her, website on that ever elusive 1st page position on search engine results. While it takes a combination of factors to get to that point, getting started with some basic search engine optimization techniques can go a long way in giving you a fighting chance. You don’t need to be a genius to know that you’ll need all the help you can get to make it in the dog eat dog world of the internet. A good SEO agency can get you started on the right track, but this doesn’t mean you can’t do things on your own. Here are a handful of search engine optimization tips that should be helpful to you.

First, pick a good domain name. Every industry has a solid set of keywords, so be sure to include one in your domain name. If your website deals in food recipes for example, play around with the word ‘recipe’. That’s a simplified example of course, but you get what I mean.

Second, make your site search engine friendly. The biggest mistake a webmaster can make is to concentrate on the ‘bells and whistles’ of a site, and leave SEO out of the equation. It’s imperative to allocate space for content on the pages of your website.

Third, pick a set of keywords to focus on. As I pointed out earlier, each industry has a number of keywords that are sniffed out by search engines. Concentrate on no more than ten keywords, and work on building their rank.
