eh?

"As long your <h1> <h2> and <title> tags are in right order to the keywords
you want to promote that's propably everything you can do, same with urls. "

Yeah, OK, plus I would also recommend:

1. keyword research and value
2. how about meta descriptions? (to promote CTR from the listings) followed
by A/B testing
3. analytics audit, goal setting, funnels in place
4. CSS order and page structure
5. Link landscape
6. Impact of personalisation / geo factors / social & buzz
7. Landing page optimisation

"Spend time planing an real marketing strategy"

Of which some will be your digital marketing channel, part of which is your
SEO plugging into your Conversion Marketing plan.

OK, there is a lot of SEO snake oil and I spend as much time fixing problems
as providing clear solutions but this doesnt mean all SEO advice is bad
advice.

Honestly, Marek, you suggesting SEO is a waste of time is like me suggesting
that a client should avoid hiring a web developer and just go for a DIY
approach and build your site in Drupal as everything else is just an
expense.
