Monday I wrote briefly about the importance of adding new pages to your websites and developing them using search friendly techniques. I have long contended that most developers focus too much on SEO and far to little on creating a bona fide attraction. Look at it this way, if you are lucky enough to work for Google, I like to think that your mission is help people find relevant content that they like. Thus, if you create a useful, instructional, entertaining website that people will want to see, Google now shares with you the mission to bring an audience to your website.

So my tip is two parts, the first is a well written article on… well writing well.
