Many search engines over look most meta tags, but most still recognise the title tag. Include your important keywords at the begining of the title as it will help your content being found.
The description tag is still in use by some search engines. You only have about a sentence worth of characters so make sure you write a concise description with the main keywords.
H1, H2, H3 Tags
Try to break your pages up into paragraphs and use one keyword rich H1 tag on the page at the most imortant area of the page (usually the top). Other paragraphs should be broken up by descriptive keyword rich H2 tags and so on.
Try to link your internal pages using keyword rich anchor text. It is always good to have a breadcrumb so that people can navigate around your site.
IMG Alt Tags
Try to include desriptive IMG Alt Tags whenever possible. Please remember when someone hovers over the image this text will be displayed, so make it readable.
A good idea when Search Engine Optimizing a page is to include your main keywords at the begining and the end of the body text. Try to include your keywords in the body text without making it unreadable because remember, humans will be reading your content. It is also useful to break up the body text with Header tags as described above. The body area should contain 300 – 1000 words and include variations of your main keyword phrases.
