      • Too competitive? (you will not be #1 for “software”)

    •  
      • Title tags unique for each page?
      • How are you using h1 tags?
      • Meta descriptions unique for each
      • page and contain keywords?
      Mistake #2: Not following best practice guidelines for on-page elements. Photo credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/floridapfe/3631282015/
    • It's all about using keywords in those on page elements – lose the filler!
    • Mistake #3: Not using your keywords in your content. Your keywords must be in your web copy!
      • You can't fool the search engines
      • May need to tweak or rewrite copy to accommodate keywords
      • Should sound natural to your readers

      • No longer an online “brochure”
      • Your competitors are changing all the time
      • Keep 'em coming back – visitors & spiders
      • Blogs are an easy way to do this
      Mistake #4: Not updating your content on a frequent basis. I need something to read, man!
    • Mistake #5: Focusing on rankings rather than conversions. * http://www.emarketer.com/Article.aspx?R=1007479 eMarketer's 2010 Digital Marketing Outlook report* : only 9.4% of senior marketers named conversion & ROI as the most important metric
    • What good is it to be #1 if you're not getting your desired outcome?
