Many people already know that search engine optimization can help a business site to be rank well and if you are rank well, visibility of the site will be higher, which will help a business to be successful.
But now, there are important steps to be done by the site in order to be rank well with search engines. These steps are, first create an excellent content, next, make the content accessible and finally, let others know about your content.
Now, if you want to be rank well in Google, you better answer the question why should you be rank well. There are lot of reasons why a site want to be rank well, to have lots of visitors, you are selling something or you are facing a tough competition. In order to be rank well in Google or other search engines, better to make sure that you create an interesting content in form of text, since search engines primarily understand text. A great strategy is to have plenty of content on your site. Let us say if you sell real estate, well write about the condos, retails properties, mansions, homes, commercial properties and the like. There are certainly other companies who sell the same, so it is wiser to make unique and original content. Do something original that others never thought off. Bering unique and original, users and visitors will have the reasons to visit your site than those other competitive sites. It is also wiser to give the readers and visitors all the valuable information they needed, in this way, visitors will tend to visit you every now and then.

When in terms of search engines, instead of pictures and text, a search engine boot will see stuff such as HTML tags, page titles, links, headers, and lots of words. It is better to make sure that every page should ideally be doing one thing alone. If you have a page where you sell condos in Miami, then it should have a header that reads "Miami condos" along with a condo photo, your Miami condos articles for sale, and a description about the Miami condos. And it is better to have some link about the related areas of your site, like a page where all real estate in Miami are found, a page that describes your company, a page leading back to your homepage, and the like. You have to make sure that the title of every page should be unique and distinctive to your site, and precisely & briefly describe the content of your page.
Well, now that you have an excellent content and an accessible one, next thing you have to answer is how can you make others link to yours. You have to make sure that others link to you because they consider a page of yours just right for their visitors.
In order to make others link with yours are by getting involved offline by going to some conferences and trade shows that might be interested to you site. And by getting involved online by sign-up for mailing list of your site's topic, involve yourself in newsgroups and web forums of your topic, look for online directories dealing with sites like yours and the like.
In doing all these steps can help your site be rank well and be successful.
