Optimize your site for SEO

Been learning about increasing SEO for your website lately.  Couple tricks: Meta tags in your HTML files.  Put the following code in your header, aka in between the < head > and < /head > tags.  For example on my site my SEO code looks like this:

<!-- SEO CODE --> <meta name="description" content="The professional blog and portfolio of Kyle Clegg" /> <meta name="keywords" content="kyle clegg, who is kyle clegg, kyle mitchell clegg, kyle clegg byu" /> <link rel="canonical" href="http://kyleclegg.com/" /> <!-- /CLOSING SEO -->

Now, apply this to your site: <!-- SEO CODE --> <meta name="description" content="Company website for eLearning Interactive." /> <meta name="keywords" content="elearning, online learning, online training, hazcom training modules" /> <link rel="canonical" href="http://elearninteractive.net/" /> <!-- /CLOSING SEO -->

This will help optimize your site or blog.  I guess the best thing to up your site though is to get lots of other sites to link to it.  Then google indexing/web crawlers will think it's really popular.  So get your blog or your company published by some online newspaper or on del.icio.us!   That's the key... no more tricking Google by creating pages that say "elearning" ten thousands times to try and get your site to the top of the SERP.  Stop living in 2004.  They're too smart now.
