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.
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 Onmce written and published they go out of date pretty quick in this fluid marketplace.
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.
