A lot of attention is being focused on Search Enginine Optimization (SEO). Specialists are rising like weeds who can tell you how to optimize your web site for gaining a higher "ranking order" through the use of strategic components such as Meta Tags, Key Word usage within the page text, external links, and so forth.

Much of this seems to rest on good, old common sense once you have a very clear idea of exactly what audience your site wants to attract and target. Much can be puzzled out by understanding the basics of how search engines work (always under debate) as they 'serve up' the results of whatever key words a user types in for a web search.

There are a lot of subtlties to it and a lot of "tricks of the trade" that can be employed. But no matter how you cut it, there are only 10 places in "the top 10" and it seems like everybody is expecting to be put there.
