    This link I found to be concise and helpful - it certainly taught me something about keyword relevance of yesteryear and the now relevant schema tagging and rich data snippets inclusions...

    How many Meta Tags should I use per page? And should I do it on every page?

    Two per page - one for the character set and one for the description. Check out yet another article declaiming the keyword meta-tag here

    I rather think that Albert was referring to reciprocal links (correct me if I'm wrong)... but even that's effectiveness in your rankings is questionable nowadays - see here

    Google is all about quality sites nowadays, so planning, designing, building and managing a really good site is probably the best thing you can do. That said, the most influential things on-site are the <title>, <h1> and URLs of the pages.

    Offsite, you want quality links pointing your way. Don't do reciprocal links - Google is onto them and a couple of changes they made last year mean you could get penalised for doing so. Social media will help, but not the spammy kind.

    Yup, reciprocal links are an apparent waste of time if this article from 2006 is to be believed...

    Yes Brian that's what reciprocal links were all about. I suggest you backtrack to thread posts #'s 6 and 8 and read the links... Dr. P's advice in thread #7 is well worth following...
