Have a clear strategy. Sites that rank well in search engines tend to focus on key areas of content and then satisfy those content needs really well. Based on your site’s purpose, discipline yourself to write content that will help you fulfill it …..
If you already have something in this vein:
1. Don’t use “click here.” If search engines like to do anything, it’s following links, so make sure your link copy is descriptive and using keywords, if appropriate. Don’t just look at inline links (within body copy), but navigation and footer links too.
2. Remember that people still need to read your content. Don’t fall into the trap of being so focused on optimizing your site for search engines that your content doesn’t make sense to a human. After you optimize, read everything over and make sure the content is still telling the story you want it to tell. don’t try to be an authority on everything.
