This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.


You need to correctly fill the title tag, use the h1 tags, have link from other websites with good Anchor texts.

Having a good domain name and the server location can also help.

  • +1 for title and h1. can you explain the server location part? (you mean geographical location, for experienced speed?) – Sam Dec 24 '10 at 1:18
  • As the speed the content is delivered influence the ranking, having a server near your market also help. – Dominique Jan 14 '11 at 14:51

Here's my top 3 answers in order of importance (most important first):

  1. Create good content.
  2. Get people talking about your site and build incoming links. Contact blogs, news sites, etc. and try and convince them to discuss your site. Make sure these sites have related content.
  3. Ensure you have good, clean structure and property meta tags, etc. so the engines can understand your site.

Having good content and clean semantic HTML.


Adding to others, some thoughts that pop into a virtual balloon, between my mind and my monitor:

  • (Get to) know your audience well >> direct your seo links towards websites they visit

  • Get feedback from your audience >> and reflect this on your website

  • Involve your audience into your site

  • trigger actions that directs your audience towards you

  • never lose your passion over any seo benefits: put your love into your site

  • the rest will be noticed by people automatically and they'll handle the rest for you!
