    • Titles are important – to readers and search engines
      • Titles are the newsprint equivalent of headlines

    • Break up blocks of text
      • Sub-headings
      • Indent
      • Lists
    • Split lengthy tomes into multiple parts
    • White space is your friend

  • HTML php CSS meta tags <H1> keyword density – Oh My!
    • Forget all this stuff
    • Just WRITE
      • Write like you speak
      • Write consistently
      • Vary your content
      • Be real / authentic / transparent / YOU
