    Begin with creating a website presence. Then consider placement of various critical SEO [Search Engine Optimization] metatags that can
    surely achieve a high search engine presence and
    increase Internet traffic to your website. These
    metatag strategies work well with published websites
    at Google and Yahoo.

    Design: Should you create an extensive Flash-based
    website, make sure to fill-in the property entries
    such as the Title, Description and Keywords. Failing
    to do so, leaves no hard HTML or ALT resource that can
    be readily indexed by search robots. Also consider the
    Internet audience and their incoming setup. For
    example, if they are on analog/dialup, Flash webpages
    take too long to load up and therefore analog users
    will likely lose interest and discontinue entering the
    Flash site. On the other hand, anyone on hi-speed DSL
    lines, will welcome Flash pages which load quickly. So
    before designing a pure Flash websitge, ask the simple
    question, "Who's my end user - is he on dialup or
    DSL?" And if you had to choose between these two users
    for maximum marketability, then select analog users
    since 80% of most resident users are still analog
    Internet subscribers and pure HTML designed webpages
    is best for them.

    A non-Flash-based website which relies on hard text,
    is far easier to be indexed by search robots. Limit
    the use of stylized text saved as .gifs since as a
    graphic, they are not indexable by search robots.

    Avoid use of frames since any number of search robots
    are unable to properly classify textual material.

    Placement of Metatags:

    A ranking or search order does take place with Google
    and Yahoo and it begins with the "Title" metag which
    should consist of no more than 65 characters separated
    by commas. The "Title" should describe in generic
    terms, the goods and services, followed by a location
    from which the resource is located, i.e., city, state.
    The placement of a domain name which is not generic
    within the "Title" is not appropriate, unless your
    domain name is a major recognizable brand name.

    The second metatag is the "Description" which is
    usually 41 words to form a complete sentence which
    best describes one's goods and services.

    And the very last category - "Keywords" are also
    somewhat limited to 15 words which can be plural
    and compound in nature. Again, avoid multiple entries
    which could be mistaken as "spamdexed entries" which
    is defined as the loading, and submission of
    repetitive words into a particular metatag category.
    "Spamdexing" when discovered on a webpage and reported
    to Google's can result in the
    elimination of your website from their search

    Good luck!

    I think $20 per month, You can do Directory Submissions, Article Written and placed in directories. Of course this is off-the-page SEO. But I would advise to you think about spending more than $20 if you want to see Guaranteed and Effective results.
