    Of course you need to include the target keywords on the page. If you don't include the keyword, then how can the page be considered relevant for that particular search query? Keyword research is by far one of the most important steps in SEO. Content is discovered through "keywords".

    Providing a good user experience basically comes down to understanding keyword intent. If you know what the searcher is looking for when they search for something, you can provide them with what they want, meaning they won't click on the back button straight away.

    From reading a great previous forum post on optimizing seo now closed for replies, I noticed one big factor after good content was validating code. I've never heard of this before and am not new to seo but not an expert either. What does validating code mean and how is it done? Also in the post was that more good links to a page help but links from a page detract from pagerank. Is this true? If so does it only hurt pagerank if the links are to external sites? I have on my site's homepage two links to "...read full article" linking to an internal page on my site for each article. I also have a link for each article crediting the link where I found the article (to the external site). Each article is highly relevant to the material of my site and from authoritative sites. Are the two outbound links hurting my site? Helping it? Neither? Thanks SO MUCH in advance!

    The most important step for SEO is competitor analysis. Unfortunately, this is given least importance.

    Without good content, SEO is TOTALLY WORTHLESS, so CONTENT is the MOST important step.

    1) Well structured content that can be easily understood as well as interesting; if the content is not good then nobody will waste time there.
    2) KEYWORD relevant to the site.
    3) Implementing on-page SEO for the selected keyword terms.
    AND all these 3 are important steps.

    According to my mindset, If appropriate keyword research is important then keyword mapping as well. We must target keyword to their perspective web page. Most importantly - content of our website should get updated over a particular period of time with Unique content.

This way you ranking for any keyword would never fall. Good content with properly researched keywords is the best way to go about with SEO.

    Hi,
    Proper keyword, quality content and relevant backlinks are the important steps in seo. Google has some algorithms which checks these quality in our sites.
