    1. Title tag - You need a relevant title, not just "Home Page" Use it for 5 key words.
    2. Headings - The search engines view < h> tags as being terms of emphasis - they give weight to the words within them. Put key terms in them.
    3. Bold - Of lesser importance than < h> tags. the < b> tags still emphasize terms of importance.
    4. Keyword meta tags - Some engines use them directly, some check them as part of a validation process - "do they match the content" If they don't then is this a spam site?
    5. Meta description tag - Most engines look at this tag. Use distinct ones throughout your site, and distinct ones for each page. Make them particular to that page.
