    Strategies for Tags


    Okay- what are people's thoughts on title tags, keyword tags, description tags. Once you have a lot of pages that are fully using all 3 tags, is it a good idea to create some pages with just a simple, to the point title tag?

    One of the reasons I ask is that under my main search phrase, some sites seem to be ranking quite well with just a title tag.

    And by the way, beyond the tags, our pages are very content rich.

    I'd like to hear what people's approaches are. Has anything changed?

    Once you have covered your main keywords, start going to the "long tail" approach.

    This essentially goes for less searched but still worthwhile keywords, that are typically less competitive. If you start with these - it is often easy to work your way up to larger keywords.

    Example:
    Main Word- Website
    Longtail - website design company oregon, website design php help, etc..
