My own advice would be this: write good content, don't try and optimise for search engines. Search engines are a constantly-moving target, since they're constantly tweaking and adjusting their algorithms. Those tweaks are always designed to do one of two things: (1) make them better at finding good content or (2) make them better at ignoring sites that use SEO instead of writing good content. In other words, if you write good content, the search engine's programmers will be doing SEO for you
That is total music to my ear. I have been chasing my tail for quite a while now thinking if I don't get every keyword in the perfect spot I'm doomed. I really needed to hear your common sense approach to this. Thanks!
