10 TIPS on Search Engine Optimization

  1. Keep the most important keyword near the beginning of the sentence. Make this tag a full sentence (for META description tag)
  2. USE most important keyword phrase in the first sentence but not the first word. DO NOT use italic or bold keyword phrases in the first sentence on the web page.
  3. USE keyword phrases in your headings, (H1, H2 and H3).
  4. START putting keywords in bold in the second paragraph. AFTER the first usage of the keyword, PUT the keywords in italics several times . NEVER apply the first usage of your keyword phrases be in Italics.
  5. USE keyword phrase in ALT tags.
  6. USE the most important keyword phases of your page in any inbound links.Whenever you are linking from any web page back to your home page, use the most important keyword phrase in the link. When your home page is linking to any other page, use the keyword phrase in that link that the other page is being optimized for.
  7. Don’t put keywords in your side navigation panel. Google loves keywords in full sentences. Putting the sentence into a paragraph is better.
  8. Use keyword phrases in an H1, H2 or H3 headline followed by a keyword-rich paragraph.
  9. DO NOT optimize a page for more that two or three keyword phrases.
  10. REMEMBER to optimize for keyword phrases and NOT keywords.This is due to the fact the keyword is already included within the keyword phrase.Naturally, people do not search for just one word any more anyway.

We are witnessing the incredibly fast-paced Internet and e-commerce market place maturing and thriving. Peter Drucker believes ecommerce will be to the Information Revolution what the railroads were to the Industrial Revolution. To oversimplify, the Industrial Revolution was a time in which tools were produced that replaced people in the manufacture of goods. In the first thirty years, all was devoted to producing known products with machines.

While there were drastic social changes with the massive shift from rural to urban living, there was little change in the products produced and purchased. They only became more readily available at ever more modest cost.

Only later did the Industrial Revolution produce something new - the railroads. For the first time in history, people could readily move great distances inexpensively. (Hauling freight came much later.) Railroads brought a thirty year boom inEurope, and an even longer one in the United States. While manyother parts of the world got started somewhat later, the boom did not end for them until the outbreak of World War I.

What Will Arise From The Information Revolution? The parallels between the Industrial and Information Revolutions are astonishing. Thus far computers, the Web, and information technology have created nothing dramatically new. They have merely changed the ways in which information is gathered, managed and reported. And to some extent, the way in which consumers purchase goods.

Computers themselves have changed the way in which products are manufactured, including their design. And a few new spin offs have come to the fore. But there has not been anything revolutionary in any of this. Nothing yet has had the impact of railroads on the whole of the social fabric.

If Drucker is correct, ecommerce will have an impact equivalent to that of the railroads earlier. Thus far the Web has produced less change in the way business is done than ore cars running on steel rails effected mining. In short, the real drama and excitement is yet to be revealed.
