There’s been a lot of hype lately about which techniques can really get your website noticed by the major search engines but without a few basic principles those techniques will never last. Here are the top five things that you can do to be search engine ready.

Every page you have should have your website name and a descriptive title. Are you guilty of “untitled” pages?
- Descriptive link text

It has never been a good practice to include “Click Here” in your links. You need to make sure that you have link text that is descriptive of the page in which it links to.
- Use keywords

The content in your website should include keywords that your users are searching for. What would you type to find your product? Make sure you include those terms.
- Fix those broken links

Avoid using tricky linking schemes or navigational elements in your pages and make sure you don’t have any links to pages that don’t exist.
- Link to yourself

It’s actually very good practice to link to your own pages. If you’ve got a post that’s relevant to an entry you’re working on, include a link it!
