      Keep in mind the competition
      Just like you have competition in the real world, you will be competing with keywords also

      What are Meta Tags?
      They are a script of words or phrases that are used by search engines to find relevant websites

      Separate by comma
      Less is more…

      Search Engines Read Text
      The Higher the better
      Label your images with ‘alt txt’ vs just having image text
      Reflective of your keywords
      The matching game – words and phrases
      Less is better
      Concentrate your keywords in relevant content

      Black Hat SEO
      Techniques intended to misrepresent a website by displaying different information to the search engine versus the userE.g. hidden text, redirects, etc.
      Link Farms
      Some websites offer link exchanges for the soul purpose of attempting to improve page rank. These sites may have thousands of links, often to unrelated sites
      Paid Links
      Links that are paid for can become questioned by search engines.
      Search engines prefer organic and natural links

      ‘Clean’ and optimize your website’s HTML code
      Make sure your content copy appeals to both search engines and actual website visitors

      Implement a quality link building campaign – organic and natural
      Content – stay relevant, high density of keywords and search phrase
