I just want to add some point:

6. not to use java script, iframes, spalsh pages etc.
7. never host your website with the bad neighbor.
8. always create a website for a human not for the search engine.
9. never believe in the ranking sparks .. seo is a continuous process so you have to keep working on this.

importance on the site should be referenced on the home page, above the line where the 'average' fullscreen user's browser cuts the page off.
that cutoff is the 'fold line'

I second that.

Be patient and keep working. "Quit" is the word that should not be on the page of your dictionary.

I would like to ad a few to this that carry over from traditional marketing. Do not let the sales force play to big a role in website content creation.
Do employ a copywriter when possible.
Do monitor content being posted to corporate blogs by employees.
Do chose social media opportunities that fit your business model rather than an all or nothing approach.
Do manage expectations of the people who view the web as a magic, unending pool of ready to close sales opportunities.

Very nice tips. I agree, never use flash and never violate Google's search engine crawler rules.

Using Flash on websites is not as popular as it was years ago. Marketers have learned their lessons.

One idea perhaps could be like trying to forget about the search engine world sometimes and merely focusing over the way people would like to see the completed sites and web pages.

In a previous life I wrote for CRN and I did a story about how Flash was used by one company to create a web-based reservation system for a hotel. Back then Flash as a web development tool was being questioned and never really took off except for buttons, banner ads and drop down menu's. Personally, I have only ever used Flash for automated presentations for trade show booths.

A few years ago, I encountered many websites - especially their home page - done entirely in Flash. From an analytics and SEO perspective, these websites may have had high bounce rates and the spiders were unable to crawl through the site - not a good thing for SEO.

Every website needs different SEO tactics to increase the traffic. Meta tags, submission to directories, blog writing, do follow blog commenting and link exchange etc are some common practices. The content of the web pages also plays important role in SEO exercise. I focus more upon: Press releases, Reciprocal Links, Forum Posting, Post newsgroups, Article submission, commenting upon do-follow blogs.
