contest. Even though the formula that tells the search engines how to evaluate their findings
changes quite frequently, there are some basics that are pretty constant. It is the basics that we
will cover here today.
GDI Website SEO in no particular order of importance include relevant
keywords, relevant titles, meta tags, unique content, links with keyword rich anchor text, alt
tags, heading tags, using a site map, contact page and about us page in your web site.
Keyword research is a good place to start. A free resources to help
you do this is the Google Keyword Tool from Google. You'll need to find the keywords relevant to
what your web page is about that people are already searching for on the Internet. You may have a
good idea what words relate to your web page but if people aren't searching for the words you have
in mind, they will not be able to find your site. Try to limit each web page to 1 - 2 keywords.
Place your keywords as close to the beginning as possible: 1-2 in your meta title, 1 in meta
keywords, 1-2 in meta description. The meta tags are located in the heading of your web site and
are seen by most search engines.
Your keywords should also be included in your first paragraph and if
possible, in each subsequent paragraph. Highlight each keyword once in bold and once in Italic on
Use keyword in the link descriptions on your pages. This is called
anchor text and if it is keyword rich, it will carry more weight with the search engines. If the

Use keywords to help identify the images on your site by placing them
in the alt tag descriptions. Alt stands for alternative text and helps those that are visually
impaired to identify what your images are about. Since search engines can not read images, this is
also they only way they can identify what your images are about and the using keywords here helps
make your web page more keyword rich.
Search engines love content, but not just any content. They love
unique content. If your web page says the same thing as many other web pages do, the search engines
will label it duplicate content and give your page a much lower ranking and make it hard for anyone
to find your page. If you don't have enough unique content on your page, the search engines will
devalue that page and give you a lower ranking for your page. Ideally, 500 words of unique content
is best - 200 words of unique content is minimal.
Use H tags on your pages. H tags are heading tags and are usually
larger than your regular text and in bold and range from H1 - H6. H1 tags are the most important to
search engines and are best found near the top of your page. Use keywords in your h tags to tell
the search engines that those words are very importance to the meaning of your web page. You can
learn how to set up h tags by typing in h tag html codes into your search engine window and review
a reliable source.
Including a site map, contact page and about us page will give your
web site more authority and validity with the search engines which helps your site look more
important. More important higher authority sites get higher rankings from the search
If you don't have relevant keywords and you have not optimized your
web site for those keywords, your site will be "lost in cyber-space" and no one will notice it but
you. And you'll notice because there won't be any visitors to your site.
