Design Recommendation…
Do these…
• Use keywords as often as possible
• Use sitemap & footers with links to other pages in the site
• Use anchor text that link to other pages within the site
• Use hidden <div> elements to increase keyword count on the pages
• Use <meta> and <title> tags to describe your site with keywords
Design Recommendation…
Avoid these…
• Redundant and irrelevant content
• Conceal keywords within images and JavaScript
• Using too many out links to other pages outside your site
• Keeping your keyword selection too big or too limited
• Going into optimization without a target audience or prioritization
Thank you.
Questions are welcome
