1. Enhance and update website content.

Content should be relevant to a site's core message, products, or services. It's also important if this content is unique or presented in an original manner.

This results in missed business opportunities. Additionally, it is very important to upgrade your content to keep it fresh. Fresh and updated content reflect a site that's not stagnant. Search Engine Crawlers (SEC's) take notice of this activity. Search trends change so it's important to monitor them and change your content to reflect this. Failure to do so will leave the door open for your competition to gain higher SERP's.

Your MTDT are very important, due to search relevancy and accuracy of site indexing. Clear, concise, and informative Meta Tags can help produce higher ranking SERP's.

There are high quality and low quality outbound links. Indications are that search engines have been giving better weight to high quality outbound links for some time now.
