I want to design a SEO friendly website similar to www[dot]stockpreacher[dot]com. However, I dont know how to start with.

Please let me know how to design a similar website. Is it designed using some CMS like Drupal or any other.

I would appreciate your inputs on this.

There are potentially 100's of variable factors you need to keep in mind, but as always it is important that you make the website fully accessible, make it validated.

Some of the points to keep in mind:

title tags for all links and images
META tags which are relevant to the PAGES content not the WEBSITE content
a good text to media ratio
structured content using h1, h2, h3 tags (never more than 1x h1 tag per page)
indepth interlinking navigation which allows multiple ways of accessing certain pages
sitemap both .xml and html format
robots.txt (to disallow access to potential pages which don't work)
SEF urls i.e. instead of www.mydomain.com/gallery.php?pictureid=23 use www.mydomain.com/gallery/23-me-and-john-in-paris/
ACCESSIBILITY (can't stress this enough, just by using good practice the SEO will come with it in hand to a certain extent)

Hope they help, some of them are 1 and the same but it gives you an idea of what you are doing and some of the aforementioned tactics will not work without other parts of the list being intact, as well as some of them aren't entirely proven to help SEO but will hinder it if not done!

Good luck!
