There are my top 10 SEO tips

1. Insert keywords within the title tag so that search engine robots will know what your page is about.
2. Use the same keywords as anchor text to link to the page from different pages on your site.
3. Make sure that the text within the title tag is also within the body of the page.
4. Do not use the exact same title tag on every page on your website.
5. Do not spam the description or keyword meta tag by stuffing meaningless keywords or even spend too much time on this tag.
6. Do not link to link-farms or other search engine unfriendly neighborhoods.
7. Do not use doorway pages. Doorway pages are designed for robots only, not humans. Search engines like to index human friendly pages which contain content which is relevant to the search.
8. Title tags for text links. Insert the title tag within the HTML of your text link to add weight to the link and the page where the link resides.
9. Describe your images with the use of the alt tag.
10. Submit to the search engines yourself. Do not use a submission service or submission software.

Hope help! :roll:

Content is king

Search engines index the content of a website, and the more content you have,
the better. Add relevant content to your website. I mean, if your website sells dogs and cats, you can add reviews on the dogs and cats have. This will also
attract potential buyers to your website. Usually dog lovers do research first before they buy online.

Great tips, there is not much I can add. However, I want to share with you an ebook I found a week ago. Author's grammar isn't the best, but the information he shares is great. It's called SEO Lies. Just google it. You should be able to purchase it for $1 (yes, that's one :D ).
Professional flash design that helps you sell more.
