    Anyone have any suggestions for improving your rank in a search engine? That is without going to one of those SEO places like overture. I did a search here and came up with a few suggestions but just trying to see if maybe I can find some more effective (read: proactive) methods.

    Just a few pointers:

    1) Trade links with other sites
    2) Make sure you have comprehensive META tags for EVERY page
    3) Take out a cheap ad on a huge site (eg fark.com, it's pretty damn cheap)
    4) Profit?

    I'd suggest searching this forum. This topic has come up a few times.

    Then I'd suggest hitting the search engines you're interested in getting noticed on and actually reading their tech docs on how to get listed (google has some VERY good documentation on how their site works).

    Then I'd suggest actually using google and doing a search on web site optimization for search engines. There should be a ton of good documentation and best practices to work off of.
