    Well said,

    Although i would like to elaborate a bit with regards to On page Optimization:

    When we speak about optimizing a blog for keywords, yes it is true that one must include a few main keywords within the articles that we write but this alone is not enough.

    Here are a few other major SEO Optimization Techniques to consider if one is serious about dominating top search engine positions:

    *Place keywords in the title tags
    *Use correct keyword density throughout
    *Place keywords within the headings
    *Make keywords bold
    *Make all pages index-able
    *Use correct link structure

    There are many others too but these should keep you in the loop.

    Lastly, i would just like to emphasize that SEO is an ongoing effort and not a one-time deal. So, to all newbies out there, don’t lose hope, just keep doing your thing and eventually you will reap the rewards.

    Happy optimizing!
