If you want to get more traffic and improve your website’s ranking just follow these simple  Search Engine Optimisation tips and soon you’ll be well on your way…

1. Great content.
Post only high quality, fresh and unique content which is relevant to your audience. Use keywords and phrases that will help search engines connect searchers with your website.
But don’t forget you need to write your content for your visitors, not the search engines! So don’t just stuff your content full of keywords, make sure it is fun to read and try to avoid boring stuff.

2. Page title tag.
Ideally, your page title should have keywords or keywords phrase at the beginning of the tag and should not exceed 66 characters.

3. Header tags.
Search engine spiders pay a lot of attention to the words used in the header tags. And it’s not necessary to have a keyword in your heading tags. It should simply contain a basic description of the page’s content. So be clever about it :)

4. Links.
Create internal links with other pages. This will not only improve your SEO, but will also help your readers find other useful information on your website. Don’t link every page to each other, only link if it’s relevant! All internal links should have a follow attribute to allow search engines spiders to flow through your site.

5. Images.
Best image optimisation practice is – Alt text (Alternative Text). Using Alt text with your images will help search engines understand what’s the topic of the page. Image file size also plays an important role, so make sure you image file size is as small as possible. To optimise your images you can use free tools like http://www.imageoptimizer.net or http://www.smushit.com/ysmush.it from guys at Yahoo!
