    Great Article! thanks for the post stymiee..

    very informative, i learned a lot from this thread..

    What should you remember from this lesson?

    Before you write one line of code:

    * Do keyword research to determine what keywords you want to target.

    While constructing your website you should do the following:

    * Use markup to indicate the content of your site
    o Optimize your <title> tags on each page to contain 1 - 3 keywords
    o Create unique Meta Tags for each page
    o Use header tags appropriately (H1 > H2 > H3)
    o Use <b> and <i> tags if appropriate
    * Optimize your URLs
    o Use Search Engine Friendly URLs
    o Use keywords in your domain (http://www.keyword1.com/)
    o Use keywords in your URL (http://www.example.com/keyword2/keyword3.html)
    o Use dashes or underscores to separate words in your URLs (keyword2-keyword3.html)
    * Optimize your content
    o Use keywords liberally yet appropriately throughout each page
    o Have unique content
    o Have quality content
    * Use search engine friendly design
    o Create a human sitemap
    o Do not use inaccessible site navigation (JavaScript or Flash menus)
    o Minimize outbound links
    o Keep your pages under 100K in size
    o Keep the number of links on a page to less then 100
    * Design the navigational structure of the site to channel PR to main pages (especially the homepage)
    * Create a page that encourages webmasters to link to your site
    o Provide them the relevant HTML to create their link to you (make sure the anchor text contains keywords)
    o Provide them with any images you may want them to use (although text links are better)
    * Make sure your website is complete before launching it

    Immediately after launching your site you should do the following:

    * Create Webmaster Accounts
    o Google Webmaster Tools
    o Yahoo! Site Explorer
    o Live Search Webmaster Center
    * Submit your site to all three major search engines
    o Google
    o Yahoo (Use the page list option)
    o MSN
    * Create an XML sitemap
    * Submit your site to all free directories
    o DMOZ (also powers Google Directory)
    o JoeAnt
    * Submit your site to relevant directories (directory lists below)
    o Directory Critic
    o Directory Rate
    o ISEDB
    * Begin a link building campaign (attempting to get keywords in the link anchor text)
    o Put a link to your website in your forum signatures (hint hint)
    o Reply to relevant blog posts (Don't spam please)

    If you will pay to promote your website:

    * Submit your site to pay directories
    o Yahoo
    o GoGuides

    Finally, as part of an ongoing strategy:

    * Continually update your website with quality, unique content
    * Continually seek free links preferably from sites in your genre

    Do NOT do the following:

    * Make an all Flash website (without an HTML alternative)
    * Use JavaScript or Flash for navigation
    * Spam other websites for incoming links
    * Launch your site before it is done
    * Use duplicate content
    o Do not point several domains to one site without using a 301 redirect
    o Do not make a site of duplicated content from other websites
    * Use markup inappropriately
    o Style <H>eader tags to look like regular text
    o Hide content using 'display: hidden' (for the sake of hiding text)
    * Use other "black hat" techniques (unless you accept the risk - Banning from the SERPs)
    o Doorway/Landing pages
    o Cloaking
    o Hidden text

    I have a new website up and i really wanted to know about search engine optimization. One thing is very exciting as there will never be an end to knowing serp. They frequently change their methods and it keeps me interested.

    Actually the only thing that changes frequently is their anti-spam tactics. If people would stop trying to game (read: manipulate) the system, then the search engines could focus on serving relevant results and everyone would be a lot better off for it.

    Well, I don't use periods as separators in the URL (is it even allowed?) but the dash and underscore are considered equal by all the major search engines now.

    What's really funny is this question is answered in this FAQ.

    be careful, because even google states that this is not a feature you should rely on to give you a realistic view of your PR, they say they update it in 3 month increments?
