  1. Customize your title tags with keywords
  2. Rewrite your URLs for link gain
  3. Tag clouds and tag pages are your twin secret weapons
  4. Link to related posts
  5. Create a Top 10 Posts list, regardless of posting age, and offer links to these
  6. Lose “permalink” and “click here” from your linking vocabulary and instead link with keyword-rich anchor text
  7. Create sticky posts to gain keyword prominence on category or tag pages
