                                              Monitor and analyze your search engine optimization
                                              efforts regularly. If you don't do this you will have no
                                              way of knowing which SEO methods are working.
                                              The best way to track and evaluate SEO work is to
join online resources that will show you how search engines index your website, the source of
your website's traffic and your website's inbound links.

Keywords are important to search engine optimization, but watch out how many you put. If you
put an insane amount of keywords on your site, it will get labeled as spam. Search engine
spiders are programmed to ignore sites that are guilty of placing their keywords too frequently on
their site. Use good judgement in your keyword use.

If you have a shopping cart system on your website, ensure that it, too, is search engine friendly.
In fact, figure that out BEFORE choosing which ecommerce suite to use. You can find reviews
online, or use a spider simulator program to check on a site that's already using that software.

Make sure that you are using unique content on your site. There is nothing worse than someone
reading what is on your site and thinking that it sounds exactly like something that they read
elsewhere. Before you place anything on your site make sure that you check it to make sure it is
unique.

One of the best things that you can use on your page is numbers and bullets to indicate
separation between ideas and lists. This will help improve the structure and organization of your
site, which will go hand in hand with the personality that the customer will tag to you and your
organization.

Consider more than just a single keyword for search engine optimization, instead go with a two
or three word phrase. When you search for something how often do you only use one word?
Consider what you would type in if you were seeking the information you're providing and then
go with that.

Patience is a virtue in search engine optimization. You won't see any instant gratification of your
work. It may take several months for you to be able to see the results of your work pay off. The
newer you are to the business, the longer it will be for you to get the hang of things.

If you do include images in your website, make sure that you include ALT-tags in the code.
Search engines cannot see images, but they can crawl through the ALT-tags and find keywords
and phrases. So put relevant text in your ALT-tags that describe what the images arem in order to
make your images relevant.

If the content on your webpage has a specific geographic location associated with it, make sure
that your META keyword tags include this location, as it will allow you to show up in a greater
amount of search results. This is a great way to ensure that your ranking goes up.

Make sure to use keywords in your URL. You can either include them in your domain name, but if
you do not wish to change the name of your site, you can also use keywords the directory path, or
in the file names if you offer material that can be downloaded.

Be specific about your keywords and phrases and keep it simple. If you try to catch every
keyword in your niche, you will have spread yourself too thin. Target a select few and use them
creatively and often while still maintaining a natural flow to your page. By doing this you can
push to the top of the list much easier.

Make your website work on the most basic of browser. Turn off CSS, JavaScript, Flash, Java,
ActiveX, and take a look at your site. If you can't get around then it's possible a percentage of
your audience won't be able to get around, either. Keep your website accessible to everyone
who wishes to view it.

A great way to increase search engine optimization is to use your keywords or keyword phrases
in any images you have on your page. Many people are directed to pages via image searches on
different search engines. Make sure that all images on your page have popular keywords that will
direct traffic to your page.

After you've read and absorbed these tips on search engine optimization, you are one step closer
to making sure your business efforts pay off in a big way. The next step you should take, of
course, is to implement these tips and tactics, and turn what you've learned into a reality by
creating your high-ranking site.
