Interesting SEO article from seochat.com

I came across an interesting article about SEO optimization for new websites. This article can be found here.

Some key takeaways from the article include:

  • Start with keyword research and then build your content around your keywords.
  • Make sure the title, description, and meta tags for each page are relevant to that page.
  • Don't publish a site with "under construction" pages and little content.
  • If you are going to use a blog to generate content, make sure you have a good writer who can post frequently and that these posts will help contribute to the goals of the website.
  • Get Google's help. Google offers Google Webmaster Tools.
  • Create a XML site map.
  • Use web analytics!
  • Use external blogs and social bookmarking sites to link to your site.
