I have an existing website with a combination of html and php pages. I want to optimize some of these pages for search engines. Will the same techniques (keywords, descriptions, etc) that work on html pages work on php pages?
Best reply by Benjamin:
Most modern search engines like Google completely ignore the keywords and descriptions you put in the header tags.
Engines like Google only focus on the page content, and they completely ignore any text that isn’t visible to the end user when the page is displayed to them. You get extra points if your page uses proper formatting with appropriate use of headers, bold words, standard text, images etc. The actual algorithm Google uses to determine Page Rank however is kept secret.
The most important tool for getting a first page listing on a search engine is getting as many quality / high PR ranking websites as you can to link to your page.
