Hello guys I was just browsing SEO moz and I found a neat post about an SEO cheat sheet that one of the SEO guys was using.
Another poster employed a similar reference except in a checklist format.
Set Up Analytics (collected data for 2-4 weeks)
Add Site to SEO Moz Campaigns ; )
Log Initial Data:
Google Pages Indexed
Bing Pages Indexed
Number of Backlinks
Google Page Rank
Keywords Generating Free Traffic
Traffic from Organic Search
Register site with Google/Bing Webmaster tools
Create XML Sitemap
Register site with Major Directories
Best of the Web
Crawl the Website
Note Duplicate Content
Check Pages as Search Engine
Note Issues (Java, etc.)
Analyze Current Meta Tags (if applicable)
Discover/Analyze Competitor Sites
Target Keywords for Top Pages
Optimize Meta Tags
Optimize On Site Links
Analyze Internal Linking Structure
Free/Paid Directory Submissions
Build Optimized Profiles
Local Search (if applicable):
Submit to Google Places
Submit to Yahoo Local Business
Submit to Bing Local
These are great little guides and I was hoping if you could help me build a similar checklist for page design. I want everything to be as tight and neat as possible. So it should include tasks such as WC3 validation, the use of microformats when needed, testing the page on multiple sized screens, multiple browsers in varying versions of those browsers, etc.

I pretty much found what I was looking for in a smashing magazine article:
It's a pretty comprehensive checklist divided into 8 sections.
1. Client-Focused Checklists and Questionnaires
2. Pre-Launch Checklists
3. General Web Design Checklists
4. Usability Checklists
5. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Checklists
6. Marketing Checklists
7. WordPress Checklists
8. Ultimate Web Design Checklists

What a great post!
It all depends on the client and their budget, and what their expectations are of the website. If they want more traffic I start to focus more on traffic and getting more traffic in. If they want a simple website just to put on their business cards, then I give them that. SEO is not always the best and cost-effective method for all clients, this is where online marketing and advertising comes in.
