No overdoing of key-words

It can be frustrating to a user to open a website only to find text and headlines full of key words meant to draw search engines. Users don't look for repetition of one or two words that draw hits; they look for specific answers to their questions, doubts and enquiries.

In addition, some search engine algorithms have, in recent times, been designed to catch sites that "stuff" content with key words. Those sites often get downgraded in listings. It is important that the content you include on your website be descriptive, informative and useful to the web surfer.

Outgoing links

Take advantage of the Internet. Don't be afraid to refer your users to outside sources that expand on the information you are sharing with them. The nature of Internet is the "only a click away" culture. With a little sharing of your site by linking to other sites, you'll find that other sites begin to include links to yours. This is a kind of "word of mouth" advertising that costs you nothing and can reap you rewards.
