Things to keep in mind about SEO

SEO is not an exact science and there is no one solution that will work all the time. In fact you will have to adjust your SEO to keep up with the ever changing engineering that Google likes to do. You can not be guaranteed of any ranking in any of the search engines unless you pay for it. Search ranking varies depending on search terms, your location and any other number of factors which are outside of your control. Page rankings can change frequently and this is done as often as hourly.
There are also certain SEO tactics that will get you banned from Google if you use them. (Key-word stuffing, for one example). Just remember that SEO starts with ALT tags and up to-date information (on the pages) about your site and is it prevalent to your website or specific to what some one is searching for.
