    Easy ways to improve SEO:
    Your target keyword should be in your URL and in your header, description, and title tags.

    By simply following the above, you can place in top ten google search results for a low competition keyword.

    To rank well with medium competition keywords you will need to: build backlinks to your site. When you write articles or posts, leave a link to your site with your target keyword in the anchor text.

    That’s pretty much it when it comes to SEO. The main thing is choosing the right keyword which is something most people overlook.

    hope that helps.

    There is none. It takes hard work.

    You must implement good on-page SEO and be consistent with off-page SEO. The latter means you have to be building quality backlinks continually, and that entails a lot of article marketing.

    There is plenty you can do for free.

    1. Have plenty of text on your site: search engines need something to read.Add alt tags to photos.
    2. Make sure your meta tags are there (not as important as it once was but you need a title and description at least)
    3. Know your target audience. Decide who you want to look at your site.
    4. Post links to your site on forums and message boards relating to the subject of you site. Don’t spam message boards, if possible discuss the topic and have your website in your signature. Search engines like links in message boards as they show the site is relevant and topical.
    5. Have a blog about the subject and post on it, make sure each post has a link to your website. Search engines like blogs and rate links from them highly.
    6.If its a new site make sure you submit it to Google.
    7. Get a contents page with text links to all the pages you want people to see.
    8. Get a site map and make sure its available and in xml format.
    9. Link exchange with websites that are on the same subject.
    10. If possible reference your website on wikipedia.
    11.make sure you have a robots.txt file to tellt he robots to come back and search again.

    7. Add content to blog

    a. Run a social bookmarking campaign on blog with one group of bookmarking accounts logins and at different times and days.

    b. Create supporting micro-sites mini-network (social profile pages at squidoo, hubpages, bumpzee, and small static hand built sites).

    8. Submit site to SEO friendly directories sites using directory submission services.

    9. Create video

    a. Distribute video with video sharing software

    b. Run a social bookmarking campaign on the videos sharing pages.

    Steps 1 – 9 are enough to jumpstart the traffic to your new blog, static website, ecommerce website… and it only takes an hour or two.

    If this is a site or market that you know is worth spending additional time on then you can follow these additional steps.

    The following steps don’t take that much additional time but should, and can easily be, outsourced.

    10. Every month (or sooner) go back and run the social bookmarking campaign again using new social bookmarking logins at different times and days.

    11. Every month (or sooner) go back and create a new micro-site or social profile page to support your micro-sites mini-network.
    12. Add posts to the blog that link/pingback to other authority blogs in the market.

    13. Pick specific posts on your blog that you’d like to rank higher.

    a. Social bookmark those posts with random bookmarking login accounts

    b. Create a videos specific to those posts and load to youtube

    c. Blast that video out to video sharing sites

    d. Social bookmark the videos on the video sharing sites with random bookmarking logins and at different times and days.

    e. Find other authority blogs in the market and post content-rich comments on their blog with links heading back to the post you are trying to rank higher.

    You can do the following steps yourself but I would strongly recommend you simply outsource them.

    14. Outsource someone to spin articles for you and submit them to directories

    15. Outsource someone to create new social bookmarking login accounts

    16. Outsource someone to subscribe to your RSS feed and have them social bookmark your new posts (the RSS feed notifies them when there is a new post so they simply head over.

    17. Outsource someone to post high-quality, relevant comments on other people’s blogs and forums (DO NOT COMMENT SPAM). Concentrate on ones that do not use the “no follow” attribute.

    18. Rinse and Repeat steps 7 – 18+ for sites that are worth the effort.

    The most effective way to advertise on the Internet is
    to first set up a website and publish its domain name
    on major search directories such as Google.com,
    Yahoo.com [at http://www.google.com/addurl/?...... and
    MSN.com since 85% of Internet shoppers rely on these
    search directories to provide them with goods and
    services. In a sense, these search directories are a
    very large Internet Yellow Pages.

    Nevertheless, should your website or opening webpage
    fail to contain "generic" keywords, then anyone using
    such "generic" queries will not be able to discover
    your website. Your domain name [URL] of your website,
    in a sense, will be invisible, undiscoverable.

    You may want to consider some simple algorithms which,
    when observed and committed in designing of a website
    with placement of various critical metatags that can
    surely achieve a high search engine presence and
    increase Internet traffic to your website. These
    metatag strategies work well with published webpages
    at Google and Yahoo.

    Design: Should you create an extensive Flash-based
    website, make sure to fill-in the property entries
    such as the Title, Description and Keywords. Failing
    to do so, leaves no hard HTML or ALT resource that can
    be readily indexed by search robots. Also consider the
    Internet audience and their incoming setup. For
    example, if they are on analog/dialup, Flash webpages
    take too long to load up and therefore analog users
    will likely lose interest and discontinue entering the
    Flash site. On the other hand, anyone on hi-speed DSL
    lines, will welcome Flash pages which load quickly. So
    before designing a pure Flash websitge, ask the simple
    question, “Who’s my end user – is he on dialup or
    DSL?” And if you had to choose between these two users
    for maximum marketability, then select analog users
    since 80% of most resident users are still analog
    Internet subscribers and pure HTML designed webpages
    is best for them.

    A non-Flash-based website which relies on hard text,
    is far easier to be indexed by search robots. Limit
    the use of stylized text saved as .gifs since as a
    graphic, they are not indexable by search robots.

    Avoid use of frames since any number of search robots
    are unable to properly classify textual material.

    Placement of Metatags:

    A ranking or search order does take place with Google
    and Yahoo and it begins with the “Title” metag which
    should consist of no more than 65 characters separated
    by commas. The “Title” should describe in generic
    terms, the goods and services, followed by a location
    from which the resource is located, i.e., city, state.
    The placement of a domain name which is not generic
    within the “Title” is not appropriate, unless your
    domain name is a major recognizable brand name.

    The second metatag is the “Description” which is
    usually 25-30 words to form a complete sentence which
    best describes one’s goods and services.

    And the very last category – “Keywords” are also
    somewhat limited to 15-16 words which can be plural
    and compound in nature. Again, avoid multiple entries
    which could be mistaken as “spamdexed entries” which
    is defined as the loading, and submission of
    repetitive words into a particular metatag category.
    “Spamdexing” when discovered on a webpage and reported
    to Google’s spamreport.com can result in the
    elimination of your website from their search
    directory.

    Good luck!
