Search engine optimization starts right at the heart of your
website. Some of the most basic things that you need to do are
things that many web designers often times neglect.

common mistake I see in title tags is using the URL of the
website. If your site has www.mysite.com in the title tag, it's

keyword search terms that include where you train dogs.
Just using these three basic SEO tips can help improve your
search engine listing tremendously.
