SEO – Top Level Breakdown What – the “definition” - volume, quality of traffic & free Art, science, business skills (organic, algorithmic) Who - the “players” - Searchers, Search Engines, Websites: The magic triangle: 1. Know your audience, 2. Know search engines (no spam), 3. Create search engine friendly websites …. (and of course, user friendly sites!)

SEO – The Essentials – Details - Page ONPAGE – “html and content” Page Titles: keyword rich, 1-3 keywords, variations Meta Tags: keywords + description Body Text: keyword density, proximity, prominence Headings: H1, H2, H3 Images: Fast loading, descriptive URLs, ALT attributes Internal Links : relevant, keyword rich Sitemap: easy to follow – users and search engines Landing Pages : User friendly, call to action, fast load FIGURE: “How bots read pages”
