    I think you should be looking for the Top 5 SEO Tips for 2012 rather than 2011 SEO Tips. Anyway here it is:

    1. Post new content regularly
    2. Add multimedia to your blogs!
    3. Create content for backlinks, don’t copy or duplicate!
    4. Diversity and Relevance is more important than ever.
    5. Give up on black hat.

    Basically the purpose of creating a robots.txt file is to improve site indexation by telling search engine crawler to only index your content pages and to ignore other pages (i.e. monthly archives, categories folders or your admin files) that you do not want them to appear on the search index because it may lead to duplicate content issue. Optimization depends on your website.

    You can create one as such:
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: [files or folders that are excluded]

    You can specify the user-agent as well, if you want a specific bot to index or ignore a particular directory.

    - Don't set the same title and meta tags for automated pages rather than make a CMS for the website to change the title and meta tags individually.
    - Always make a sitemap
    - Limit You use of jquery, use CSS where possible.\
    - Don't Use jquery plugins which increase the site loading time
    - Don't use flash except for intros
    - Compress the images as much as possible to make site faster and use colors instead of images.
    - Make sure that 2 top layers of webpages are inter linked with each other
    - Make two navigations atleast one for header and one for sidebar.
    - If you are using same header file for every page make sure that <head></head> part is not included in it.
    - If you are building applications in PHP use htaccess to make friendly URLs instead of using ugly ones liek mydomain.com?id=xx
