Hi bbjoe,

Top Google ranking? We can do better than that! Much better in fact. Here are at least 3 things (more to come in part II) you can do today to build on your SEO success.

And You know what? It doesn't really matter whether you rank #1 or #12, on Google, Yahoo!, or Bing. You can still use these tips to squeeze more out of your organic listing.

You have a lot of control over your search listing: you choose the page URL, the Title and the Meta description. There's plenty of good advice out there on writing engaging titles and descriptions, so I won't go there. A couple of tips though:

The title and URL have a significant impact on your rankings. If you rank pretty high (say in top 10) don't mess with your page's title and URL much. At least keep the keywords intact (you do have your keywords in the title and URL, right?)
Like I said, the Meta description has no effect on your rankings so you can experiment with it all you want without putting your rank at risk.
Google likes highlighting the keywords from the user's query in the text snippet. When it doesn't find them in your Meta description, it will go and search the rest of your webpage making its own snippet. So, make sure you have your major keywords in your Meta description.
Sometimes Google takes site's description from Open Directory (DMOZ) instead of using your Meta Description. You can tell Google (and other search engines) not to do this by adding the following Meta tag:
<meta name="robots" content="NOODP">

Check the other listings on the page and see how you can make yours stand out from the crowd.
If you get it right you will end up getting more search traffic from your 3rd but great listing than the top two guys.
