  2. Competitive research / market research
  3. Links research – competitors and new link opportunities
  4. Traffic and conversion monitoring and tracking (ranking too in some cases)
  5. Information architecture & framework development (users and search) *consider a “themed” site (silo)
  6. Unique content development – on page

  17. Sitemap (HTML & XML) *XML least important
