Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses. – George Washington Carver

Search engine optimization is a combination of a) skill/knowledge, b) talent and c) creativity – and putting them all into action – and building from there. Just do it – no excuses.

You can even do it internationally!

  16. Robots file (robots.txt) management (control duplicate content issues)
  17. Sitemap (HTML & XML) *XML least important
