I’m trying to work on the search engine optimization (SEO). I found 2 links and I have followed some of its recommendations. It has worked a lot, now Google finds it with the main key words of the business.

The activities I have done:
1.- Validate the URI. I started with 8 errors and now I obtain a green light: “This document was successfully checked as XHTML 1.0 Transitional!”
