If you’re at a startup, you might be wondering how to make your site search-friendly. But you’re probably too busy coding and drinking caffeine to do SEO research. So here are a few quick tips:.
  • Don’t worry about the meta keywords tag. Google search ignores it.
  • Spend some time on your titles and meta descriptions. They're useful.
  • Most importantly, check out this video (or just the slides) and gain SEO peace of mind. It only costs 10 minutes.

Everything I’d tell a startup if I had ten minutes as their SEO consultant.

There are more tips available at developers.google.com/startups. Best of luck! It’s great that you're pursuing your dreams.
