this might be a stupid question but how do i make my website seo friendly...
It's not at all a stupid question. It's a million dollar question, but there's a lot to it. I'd recommend by starting with these free resources that will guide you:
1. Yardsites Launch Checklist - http://resources.yardsites.com/landing/launch-checklist-lawn-care-website
Full disclosure that this was created by my company and requires simple registration (don't worry, we won't spam you!). This checklist is quick to work through and will help you make sure you're covering the basics without needing to dive into SEO theory.
2. Google's SEO guide - http://static.googleusercontent.com.../search-engine-optimization-starter-guide.pdf
There's some skepticism out there about Google not being so straightforward about how to do SEO, but I do think their guide does a good job on covering the basics. It doesn't get too technical and will give you an understanding of what Google is looking for in a "good" site.
3. Moz.com's Beginner's Guide to SEO - http://moz.com/beginners-guide-to-seo
This goes into more detail than Google's guide but still doesn't get too technical. What I like about this guide is it gets you thinking more about what makes your site good for your visitors overall. One of the mistakes you see some site owners make is that they focus on the structural and techie details of SEO (keyword rich H1 tags, title tags, etc.) but don't think at all about making the site useful for human visitors. The Moz guide helps you avoid this.
I'm sure you'll get a lot more good advice from others in this forum on specific changes you can make, but this should get you started and give you a pretty solid understanding of what's involved.
I'm happy to answer more questions!
Good information there!
Just copy and paste someone else's content on your site. It won't hurt anything but as long as you have content you're good.
On another note just read the moz guide. Everything you need to know is in there

Was this a serious post? Because there are a couple of issues here:
1) Copying someone else's content is against the law and has resulted in little things like the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA").
2) Copying someone else's content doesn't benefit you with seo as Google will recognize that the content isn't original. You get little to no points with Google for copied content.
