    SEO Header Question

    Hello Everyone,

    I am currently building a new site with strict CSS3 and HTML5 validation. As far as SEO purposes go, I need a little advice and would love to hear some opinions. Essentially I am deploying server side includes with PHP. Where would you recommend putting the title and head tags for best search engine exposure? For instance my home page will use several files, but most importantly index.php, header.html, and index.html.

    In which file do I put the <head> and <title> tags? Also, if I guess correctly and use <head> and <title> in index.html can I still insert the <head> tag in header.html as well? Or is having two head tags on a page a no no?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes Having Two Head Tags is definitely a no no, and Google Recommends having Unique Meta Keywords and Meta Descriptions Tag in the Head for each page

    and again Backlinks are the key in SEO !!
    you can purchase Backlinks from sites like
    or place a free article with links of your choice in sites like

    So, you are saying I should put the head and title tags in index.html, correct? I see how that makes sense for SEO and search indexing, but for regular coding I find that to be kind of a pain in the butt. For instance, yes keywords and titles are unique to every page, but lots of my head content is not. I.e. style sheets, favicon.ico, scripts, etc. The includes, especially, header.html, kind of lose their value.

    Is there anyway around this?
