Default Search Engine Optimization Tips

These tips can work for you in your SEO tasks
1) Use Google AdWords' keyword tool to find the most popular keywords related to your website and your beat
2) Use key words and phrases in your HTML title tag
4) Switch from AP style to "SEO style" on references in body copy
5) Use keywords in your URLs whenever possible
6) Never publish the same article under two or more URLs on your site
7) Create standing pages as linkbait for popular ongoing stories and issues
8) Never retire or change page URLs without providing a 301 redirect
9) Use bit.ly or other URL shorteners that use 301 redirects and provide click stats when posting to Twitter
10) Link to other great, original content and invite other publishers to link to yours

I think it is really vital. You never want to lose your search engine rankings for that particular page because of any such silly mistake.

You should measure results and modify your works, so you don't sit there with fingers crossed, wishing and hoping. Try testing a project before you start because 'hits' might float away after they land, on your page (the other half of the battle). SEO requires an expense: one you must calculate.

Default Bit.ly

I heard that using a bit.ly to shorten url's could take away value from a backlink. Although I have heard that links from Facebook and Twitter are not valuable in terms of SEO.?.

Also it is necessary to find a good keyword tool which is able to give you an exact information... There are a lot of them, it is worth to try some and find your own. I prefer semrush for example.
