A Checklist of Current SEO Techniques

-Include all keywords in your JavaScript file in HMTL comment tags.

-Have an XML sitemap within your site.

-Name your site’s URL using the same keywords as they appear on your webpage but separated using a dash.

-Your keywords should feature in the meta description, titles, file names of your images, header tags, and alt tags of images.

-Make manual submission for listing to at least 250 search engine optimized directories.

-Retain a 3-7% keyword density.

-Conduct an organic keyword research using software such as Web CEO.

-Each page ought to have only one tag, and also make use of tags 2,3,4.

-Reduce code and increase content for purposes of high text ratio.

-Reduce your webpage’s loading time.

-If your URLs are dynamic, ensure they are translated into HTML.

-Ensure your website is W3C compliant.

-Use anchor text to link keywords in articles to other articles within the same site.

Of course there are numerous other ideas to develop and many other tasks to perform but if the above-listed checklist is followed well, you can rest assured that your website is ready to create an impact online. But when all is said and done, the main factor you should consider is the quality of content that you create. A website that has quality informative and interesting content will be deserving of major attention and perceived as an authority website in the market niche. Anchor text links basically outline the path to the source of any content and when the total number of links in your website continues to multiply constantly through downloads, rest assured traffic will come in huge growing numbers, which of course translates to business.
