This is a terrific list of rules to follow about web site development considerations for SEO quality. There are about 30 rules to consider, but here are the first three… if they are not interesting to you then forget the rest of this post.
Domain Name – Your domain name should be brandable (example: Google, Amazon, Yahoo!, etc.), easy to say, and even easier to remember. Don’t worry too much about stuffing keywords into your domain name. Keywords in domain names no longer have the punch they used to.
www or not www – The choice is yours, http://www.examplesite.com/ or http://examplesite.com/, pick one and stick with it. I recommend using the www because the basic Joe Schmoe Web server tends to type in www, anyway.
Simple Design – Don’t reinvent the wheel. If your design is complex, chances are it will hinder your visitors’ ability to navigate and view the site plus it will slow down development. The simpler the better.
