The 10 rules or commandment you should use to SEO your pages for keywords and Meta tag description.

Rule #1 Lets say you already have your page created, so lets be clear this is not a tutorial on your web but, a guide for SEO using meta keywords along with description tags.
First of the entire page you are creating or I should say the type would determine you keyword density. Example would be if this were a sales page then no more than 1500 top 2000. This is where you describe the advantages of the service you are providing along with the solution. Testimonials are a great-added feature so place them appropriately. You could go as far as telling a story of how a client had “pain” in their sales effort and how it was solved by using your service. Again don’t blabber get to the point and make it interesting.

Your product page will be different that your sales page. This should be 500 words and no more than 700. On this page what you are trying to accomplish is selling your product. If your user gets to this page then you know they want specifics. Therefore the job is convincing the user that what your product will take the pain away.

Your article page word count ought to be at least 1000 words and no more than 4000.Some will argue that it’s too long but you already have your reader so give them some meat to the subject. And if you are an excellent content writer then you can do it in less.

Rule #2 your Meta keyword should match your file name period. The search engines will match up your keywords with the page and give the page a higher relevancy spot. For example from: Editor copywriter the first one on Google is a site with that name and the URL has that name. So try to choose your URL name wisely and make sure your Meta keyword reflects the name of your URL.

Rule #3 do not use more than 5 keywords in your Meta tag. If you use more than that then Google will think you are spamming therefore you will kicked to the curb. Search engines rank the keywords from the order that they will appear. Basically the first word becomes the primary keyword then the second is a secondary keyword etc. You should line your keywords up in the order of relevance to the page. The Meta keyword tag used in my above example is.

Rule #4 Make sure you use all the keywords in your Meta description, with the primary keyword as close to the front as possible. Remember the Search engine will not read your stuff verbatim, however it will match the keywords in your description. No repetition here if you.

Rule #5 Your Meta description ought to be around 100 to 200 characters. Make sure you have a good description to your page. If you use less than the search engine won’t finds you and if you use more than 200 then the Search engine will not look at you. Besides you won’t look very professional.

Rule #6 When you are setting up your Meta tags do it so it looks like a sentence. Search engines don’t read it like this but when people use the search engine that is how they do it. Very rare or I should say more often than not people will do a search with a sentence.

Rule #7 Read your content at least 3 times. From spelling, to grammar, along with placement and lastly your paragraph distribution. Once you are confident with your page proof read it again and focus on you keyword placement including repetition. You want your keywords placed in your content sparingly. One last tip read your content aloud. Amazingly when a person reads their content silently they won’t catch spelling errors or the flow may not be right. But if you read it aloud then you can see where punctuations go easier.

Rule #8 Place your Meta description in one line for your html code. Some search engines will miss the second line I have seen it happen.

Rule #9 You know I am all about doing what is right but in respect to keywords do not use more than 3 keywords. Most users rarely search fro more than 3 keywords at a time. Therefore try to use the main keywords

Rule #10 Use your primary keyword in the first and last paragraph of your page. The search engines will give more relevancies to your page if they find your keywords at the beginning and the end of your page.

Extra Kudos for you – make sure you use the primary keyword in a text link format in your page. But only do it once not twice. Another thing get a bookmark widget on your page your visitors will like that it helps them remember where you are. And make sure you keep them on your site. In conclusion use what I have said to increase your page rank. And keep in mind use your keywords wisely and make sure when you discuss Keywords, meta tag descriptions and top ranking optimization that you use it as I have once in your first paragraph and once in the end. As I have done here.
