This checklist will help you get started
To begin with, make sure you’ve got a good domain name. A domain name should be easy to spell and pronounce, and it should reflect what your business does. If you’re selling something, use words like “buy” or “sell.” If you’re providing services, try using words like “help,” “fix,” or “service.” Avoid using generic terms like “website” or “store.”
Create an XML Sitemap
Next, add a sitemap to your site. This will help search engines find your pages more easily. You can do this by creating an XML file (XML stands for Extensible Markup Language) and uploading it to your website.
Add Keywords to All Pages
Finally, make sure that every page on your site has at least one keyword phrase. If you’re not using any keywords on your pages, then you’re leaving money on the table.
Submit Site to Google Webmaster Tools
You should also submit your website to Google Webmaster Tools so that Google knows what pages exist on your site. This will help them index your site more quickly and improve your ranking.
Set up Robots.txt File
If you’re using WordPress, you can set up a robots.txt file to tell Google not to crawl certain parts of your site.
