    SEO is very important. No one is going to reach your site unless and until it's properly SEO optimized. The whole of making a website is to aware people about niche, services, giveaways, guides etc. So if things are not SEO optimized, the real point of making the website will fail.

    I'll make that a little more granular; if your traffic is going to be organic then SEO is integral to your site's design. If your traffic is paid for or is from other sources then functional design maybe more important; ie., heavy on flash for example.

    I hate web design companies that think they know everything and then you suggest what they need to fix for your client and then they just act snobby and say no...

    HM, well...


    I'm getting pretty good with SEO, I believe anyway. I am shit at explaining, but I have kicked some ass. Gotten some friends websites on 1st page with very tough keywords, within minutes. Sounds doubtful, right? I'd explain how I did it, within minutes, but that's not what this is about lol. I nearly went off with a novel there, phew!

    OK, here's me attempting to explain. Important? Sure, of course. I make sure to use all my keywords in anchor text. Also, if I am say building a business website for a friend, I create a "Blog" that will not be displayed to visitors, oh but it's there. I'd fill that blog with every damn thing I can find on whatever the niche is. And yes before anyone tells me it's obvious, etc, I'm just saying what has worked, and continues to help me dominate with some killer keywords. Making sure to add many photos, and linking the photos to other pages on the site, every photo.

    Also, I've seen some friends failed miserably. An architect friend, for example. He paid a small fortune for this overly-chaotic web design that he couldn't even navigate as one ought to be able to navigate; seamlessly. So after 1.3 years and only 5k visitors (lol) , I told him to let me have a crack at it. It's kind of ironic, the main theme was
    something to do with de Vinci, and I was reminded of "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication". or however that goes.

    We gave it an overhaul, I added a theme that when users flipped through the pages on the site, it was literally as if they were turning pages. Kind of an ancient-ish type book. I'll get some screnshots of it when I can find it. Anyway, it was simpler. And he went with the blog idea I had (which is probably not new, I know)

    Idk, like I said. I suck at explaining. The lingo usually goes over my head, but I know how shit works. It's not difficult to see now with Panda, the content is king still rings true.


    AH, perhaps I can come in with how I managed 1st page in minutes. Writing brief articles, making sure to use anchor text, obvsly. And then slamming that bitch on Amazon.com's lil forum section. That right there. 1st page, minutes.

    Or, YouTube. Forget slamming all sorts of URLs under descriptions thinking that Google snags those- it doesn't. Throw the URLs in the BAND CHANNELs profile, that one is a ********, the rest are not. Just those two alone I have dominated in many different keywords. So do some keyword research and you'll be good to go, OP. I think maybe most will agree, keyword research is very, very important.

    Idk, Im still a noob. Its what I know works. Ive got more tho that Ive used. If anyone hasnt had enough of a noob telling them what they know, or thought they knew. Or did know but think it doesnt work. Etc.


    P.S. You MUST have bought from Amazon to post! Dont forget PHOTOS with your posts! And anchors, ofc. :)
