You may be looking to optimize your site to cover every contingency, but you would do better to focus on a smaller, manageable number of keywords, and claim the top search spots, then to overextend yourself and try to conquer too much search territory. Pick five to ten keywords, do your homework, and then optimize your pages with that focused set of words in mind.

Try to avoid using a lot of symbols like underscores in a URL. Such language baffles any search engine, and therefore you should endeavor to develop true names for each URL that include an applicable keyword that makes sense in context.

If you are selling an item which hundreds of other online retailers are selling, everyone is probably using the same generic manufacturer description of the product. You can annihilate your competition by writing your own unique product pages, incorporating the keywords that you know potential buyers will be typing into a search engine.

Again, search engine optimization has the potential to provide dramatic results for those willing to take the time to learn and apply its basic tenets. Once the fundamental strategies are mastered, it is possible to achieve tremendous success online. By diligently applying the tips included in this article, you can begin to harness the power of search engine optimization.
