									Is Your Site Properly Optimized and Ready to be Launched?

Launching a new site is very exciting, but you should make sure your site is properly optimized with the best
SEO techniques. You can use this article as a checklist before your site goes online.

Do you have enough strong keywords throughout your content? You should have around five strong keywords that
correspond to a high search volume from your target audience. Your meta tags, URLs, titles, and anchor links
should contain these keywords and your content should of course be relevant to these keywords. Do not consider
your brand as a keyword yet; it might take some time for your site to get popular enough for people to look up
your brand on search engines.

Check all of your links. All of them should be properly optimized with strong keywords in the anchor text, and
they should take Internet users to the right page. A broken link could cost you a lot of traffic, especially
if it is an important link to a page where you sell your products. You also need to share links to your site
on blogs, message boards and have other webmasters and bloggers share your links if you can. Make sure you use
the right URL when you create these back-links.

Your site should contain a decent amount of content. Do not expect to be successful after launching a site
that contains three pages. You need to have detailed reviews of your products and a fair amount of content
related to your products and topic when you launch your site. Search engine spiders will be able to tell that
your site is relevant if this content is well-organized and optimized with strong keywords, and human visitors
will read through your content if you have quality advice to offer.

Create links from one page of your site to the others, and optimize these links with keywords. These links
should also be relevant: Add links from one article to a similar one, or from a product page to another
product your customers frequently buy together. These links should be helpful to your readers and give them
more information on their topic of interest. You also need to create a well-organized menu so that the main
pages of your site can be accessed. If you want to bring more visitors to a specific page, create a banner or
place a link to it in a visible spot on all your pages.

Give your site enough time. Having your site optimized before you launch it is important, but you will get
good results over the long run. Keep looking for ways to get more back-links on other popular sites or blogs
and stay up to date with trends, especially regarding keywords. You will have to update your site regularly
with quality content and make minor changes. Keep track of your results with a good visit counter tool to find
out how many people see your site and which back-links and keywords bring the most visitors.

Go over this article again right before you launch your site and do a few modifications if necessary. Keep
track of your results and always look for new ways to improve your SEO techniques.
