Google delivers about 60 percent of most qualified free traffic to my websites every single day with almost no exception. Yahoo is second, delivering around 20 percent and MSN is third delivering around 10 percent. That leaves 10 percent that comes from all secondary search engines like Alta Vista, AOL, Looksmart, ExactSeek, and so on.

If you plan on reaching your visitors without spending a lot of money, then free search result listings are the answer. Most search engine optimization experts set their main goals for placing in Google for the main keywords they are trying to target in the first two pages of results and more importantly in the first page.

Second, your meta tags in your header tag should reflect whets in the content on your page. You have title tags, a description tag, and keywords tags. The title is most important followed by the description, and finally the keyword tag.

Third, your images should have alt tags that describe to the search engines what your pictures represent. If you have an image of your business logo placed on your site home page then call it you business logo.

Fourth, If you can purchase a website address that has your primary keyword of focus in it than do so. If you already have a website that has been active for a good period of time than keep the address you have. Most of the time your marketing collateral has your web address on it anyway.

Fifth, name your website links. If you offer web design services, your service tab should be (web_design_services.html) for example. Name your images as well. If you have an image of a dog swimming, call it (dogswimming. file type).

Find sites that are similar to yours in content and request link placement trade from them. You can write articles like this one, post blogs, place classified ads, and so much more.

Seven, add fresh content to your site at least once a week if you want the search engines coming back for more. Having fresh content on the home page is most valuable. Add a newsletter, latest updates, ect.
