    So my site is pretty much done, other than a few things I will be putting in now and then. My question is: what do you do in the finishing stages?
    I've heard people talk about SEO, other optimization and whatnot or other.

    Website is simple and is easy to access. This one's great.
    More users are attracted to easy-to-use website. Well of course users don't like
    websites that are as complicated as your love-life

    Well again, for finishing touches, worked for me also, is you'd better start reviewing whole website
    and try to observe whether it functions well. Then start the Search Engine Optimization.

    Well, there are many options to consider but for a hint you'd select all options.
    This how we gone do it.

    First of all the most important one:
    [COLOR=rgb(255, 0, 0)]TITLE[/COLOR] attribution for navs/links.
    <a href="somethinghere.php" [COLOR=rgb(255, 0, 0)]title="DOLIDZEDesigns"[/COLOR]>Home</a>
    If you put many title attributes on your website, it would be the best reason for your website to be top 1 in any search engines.

    Second One:
    META DESCRIPTIONS

    [COLOR=rgb(0, 0, 0)]Third One:[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(255, 0, 0)]IMAGE ALT[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(0, 0, 0)]<img src="somethinghere.jpeg" [COLOR=rgb(255, 0, 0)]alt="DOLIDZEDesigns"[/COLOR]>[/COLOR]

    That's all for the basic Search Engine Optimization.
    Some of the reason why TOP websites in search engine are in TOP
    is because of their highly user-knowing abstract website development.
    It means focus on just one subject.

    First off, you'll need to figure out who you want to target. Are you going to go local? Are you going to go state/regional? National? International? This will have a bearing on the keywords you ultimately want to use and the competition level (I've arranged the list above in order of competition). I'd start local, which means that you're going to have to rewrite some of your copy to indicate where you're from and what services you provide (e.g. "I am an Irvine web designer"...simple and crude, but meant for illustrative purposes only).

    But before you do that, you're going to need a bigger portfolio than what you have, which means that for the short run, you're going to have to continue picking up clients the way you've picked up your first two until you've got 6, 7, 8 decent sites. The size of your portfolio will increase the size of your site (if done properly), which has a search engine impact.

    After that, pretty well everything you'lll ever need to know is in a handy PDF guide from Google:

    Wasn't that nice of them?
