This is a very neat analysis. It justifies and promotes more of SEO that is
well-intended, thereby benefiting all corners. Can SEO be described as the
so-called 'science' of how to construct pages properly? For example:
-Use meaningful anchor text to attribute contextual information to the
source, e.g. no ">click here< to the cool site"
-Do not link excessively, but allow navigation to other _related_ content
-Use meaningful title, e.g. NOT "New Document" or "My Homepage".
