    Good tips, I would add the following; always remember to put key words and phrases in bold if they are important and the keywords of your page / article. Also remember to add ALT and TITLE attributes to images and links appropriately that describe the destination of the link or what the image is about.

    Finally make sure long sentences are summarised in bullet points rather than long drawn out text; think of the reader and how little time they have to read the article. They will always be kind to articles that are to the point and do not waffle on….
