This week, I asked my Twitter followers:
++What do you feel is THE most important SEO tactic for any website?++
Here's what they said:
Laurent8: TITLE + Anchor Text and you got yourself a (basic but most important) SEO strategy.
josiahcole: Content creation. Without unique content you have nothing to market and nothing for the visitor; inbound links will be organic.
netrafic: Browser titles that are congruent with page content tailored towards a popular keyword term or two.
semdave: Content development tailored to meet the information needs of your appropriate audience. User-friendly content = strong SEO.
AVirtualEdge: Web content and backlink quality.
designrox17: Would it be keywords? I'm new to this.
Jill's comment: Well, if designrox17 meant keyword research (and not Meta keywords!), then the newbie's the one who got it right! While content creation, titles, and anchor text are extremely important, if you don't first research the keywords, they could all be for nothing.
