SEO Basics

Header Tags - Header tags are usually the headlines (h1) and subheadlines (h2, h3, h4) on your website pages. These should be keyword-rich and match the content on your page.

Meta Tags - Meta tags are little bits of code that are visible in the source code. They tell search engines what the page is about, but search engines don't pay much attention to them anymore. You'll often see the meta description used in Google's search results. So it's worth including as this is a way to get people to click on your link.

Page Title - The page title shows up at the top of your browser window. It might not be noticeable to the average website visitor, but the search engines pay special attention to it. Page titles should be keyword-rich and match the content on your page.

Search Engine Friendly URLs - It's better to have URLs that actually describe the page, instead of random characters that only make sense to the database running your website.
