Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is something you should be aware of before creating a site. Make sure you've done careful researches on the best keywords to use. Using the wrong keywords would eliminate your site from search engines forever!
This keyword-tweaking game for a site is often called OnPage Optimization. In order to rank high in search engines, make sure you execute these tasks:
1. Include your keywords in the domain name
2. Include them also in the page title
3. Use “h1" and “h2" header tags
4. Type some keywords in bold, italic and underline
5. Put your keywords at the beginning and end of your webpage
6. Named all the images or graphics after your keywords
A wrong thing to do is performing unnecessary keyword-filling! This could make your site banned by search engines. An example of unnecessary keyword-filling is by putting hidden texts all over your webpage. Did it ever cross your mind? Well don't do that silly thing!
Also don't fill your meta tag, alt image tag, or title tag with keywords. You will get caught and your site will be banned for this!
After all, there is another important factor that has a huge impact on your site's ranking in search engines. It's the OffPage Optimization. I'll write about it in another article!
