SEO: Use Semantic HTML
<h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6>
<ul> <ol> <li> <dl> <dt> <dd>
<table> <thead> <tbody> <th> <td> <a>
<title> <meta> <link> <strong> <em> <p>
(to name a few)
SEO: Meta + Link Tags
Tells search engines to crawl site:
<meta name="robots" content="all" />
— Also, make sure to have example.com/robots.txt
Displayed in search results, if unique:
<meta name="description" content="..." />
Not as important, but use anyways:
<meta name="keywords" content="..." />
Prevent duplicate content penalty:
<link rel="canonical" href="..." />
