7. Develop a strategic plan for your content.
Do some keyword research (see number 17 below) and develop a plan on content that works with the best keywords. Plan on writing a page (or blog post) once a week, fortnight (not the game), month or whatever works for you.
11. Each page should have one primary SEO keyword.
Each page of your web site will be optimized for several keywords, but one keyword should be more prominent that all the rest for search engine optimization purposes.
