I've always told you that search engine optimization (SEO) is about common sense, not numbers and formulas. Today's quick trick to boost SEO is just that - common sense.

"Matt, what the heck are you talking about?"
What I am talking about is your website is not a dead-end, but rather, a tiny part of a larger web. For example, how often do you do the following?

- Find interesting tools your users may find useful, and link to them accordingly
- Find interesting images and infographics your users will enjoy, and link to them accordingly
The bottom line is there is no way your website can be a one-stop shop for all of your users' wants, needs and desires. Although, I agree you should try as much as possible; and, the way you try while also boosting your SEO is to consistently and moderately link your site to valuable information, entertainment and socialization with regard to your market niche.
