Search Engine Optimization - SEO

Quick Tips

  • Submit your webiste to search engines

  • Download and Install Google's Toolbar to see your site ranking (from 1 to 10)
  • Don't forget to add meaningful description, keyword and title tags

    The words you use inside your title, description and keyword tags must also appear in the content of that page, otherwise web crawlers will "ignore" them.

  • Use a text browser such as Lynx to examine your site

    Even though Lynx doesn't work like a crawler I suggest to use it to see how a website is displayed when javascript, flash, cookies and sessions are not used.
