Keywords in your meta tags
Limit your tag to 10 - 12 words. It used to be a very large capacity thing but
thanks to spammers, most search engines will view any more than 12 with
suspicion. Separate your words with a
comma, and not just a white space. Make
sure your keywords in your meta tags are definitely in your page content or you
will be penalized.
Description meta tag
Put your description tag immediately below your title
tag and then put in a good, highly readable and concise description. Pop in a few keywords, but the key is clarity,
because it is sometimes used as the search engine description that your viewers
see on their search results.

images because search engines cannot index them. So unless you want it to stay a secret, then

Also known as on-page links, these are important to
both help the user navigate the page and to help the Google search bots to

Keyword your links
It’s the year 2012, so people know what a link looks
like. For that reason you do not need to
write “click here” or “click me”. You
should make your links a keyword-relevant bit of text. This helps search bots figure out what the
page that the link is pointing to is about.
So if you are linking to your flower sales page, then call the link
“Flowers and Plants”.
Keywords in text
Put the Keywords in your text as italics, in bold,
or starting with a capital letter like the word “Keyword” in this
sentence. Put them in bullet point
lists, preferably at the beginning. Here
is a good example for the word “kitten”.
