Hi,

I'm currently writing a report (which I plan to post on here when completed) based on the 'best practices for optimisation'. i.e correct keyword density, employing keywords in URL's etc..

Just wondering if anyone knew of any useful resources i could refer to.

Cheers, Lee.

Hello Lee

I would say you are here. Take a look through the library sections of each forum. Things change fast, best practice now will not be best practice a week, as day or a year from now.

If you are after books, forget it. Onmce written and published they go out of date pretty quick in this fluid marketplace.

Cheers

The bottom line is there are a set number of things to do that have been pretty much the same for years. The rest of the rules/tips/ideas change often and to keep up with them means keeping up with a wide variety of resources. And it's all colored by if you use HTML or XHTML or PHP or?. The subject you've chosen can get pretty deep and technical very quickly.

Resources I can think of off the top of my head (by no means a complete list):

Search Engine World [searchengineworld.com], Google's Webmaster guidelines [google.com], and W3C [w3.org] (for ensuring you produce valid code which I think affects your SE ranking). The list of resources here on WebmasterWorld is vast - you'll need to do some digging.

I would love to see a consolidated report on basic SEO.
As lorax mentioned there are some basic techniques that never seem to change.

I hope you are able to finish this project.

For fun, I wonder how the old "Thou Shalt Not [webmasterworld.com] thread holds up?

Seemed to me that about 99% of the thou shall not rules are still true today.
