Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
What are the top five things I need to begin fine tuning my websites for better ranking in the search engines? For example, if I'm a bakery in North Carolina- and I type 'Creamy Cakes in North Carolina' into Yahoo! or Google or MSN...I get up as close as possible to the front.
Links to the basic info would be great too! Thanks.
I think the best way is to choose all the important phrases and then make a page for each one, with the phrase in the title, meta description, header and sprinkled about the page.
Of course incoming links with your keywords in the anchor text will give you a very good boost.
Those are probably the most important factors IMO(feel free to correct me if I'm wrong)
