Seo Tips and Tricks


Published on

Improving the ability of your website or blog to be found is what search engine optimization is all about, but it can still be a pretty confusing concept for many people out there. Knowing how to correctly optimize pages is an acquired skill, and here are a few tips you can use to develop it.

To be sure that your site is always ranked as highly as it should be, you will need to submit a site map to the search engines. Every page on your site will automatically be linked to the site map, so be sure to create an XML map to submit. It makes things easier on your visitors, and search engines will increase your rankings as they receive the information about your site.

If you operate a WordPress blog, the best way to handle SEO is to grab one of the server's many plug-in options. Instead of looking around and reading articles, you can handle everything on-site. A lot of the difficult steps of the past have been automated on a site like WordPress, so tinkering with the site a little bit, can turn you into an SEO aficionado.

When choosing a domain name for your site, you should never settle for something irrelevant just because your preferred domain has been taken. The closer your domain name is to the subject of your site, the better you will do in the rankings. Turn on that light bulb above your head and choose a great, relevant domain name.

As you can see from the article above, there isn't anything that's overly complicated about the process. It's basically just stuff that you didn't yet know and didn't really think to check for. So, to make sure your site is found, just remember to employ the SEO tips and tricks that you've read above.

Seo Tips and Tricks

  1. 1. SEO Tips and Tricks YOU’LL WANT TO USE F R O M C H O O S E Y O U R S A L A R Y
  2. 2. Search engine optimization (SEO) is an effective and efficient way to get your website on the first page of search engines, and these SEO tips and tricks can make the process even easier.Why is the first page of search engines such an ideal place?When searching, most people will click the top few links they see on the first page of results and rarely will click on the other pages.
  3. 3. The top 3 places on the first page of search results will get more traffic than all the other positions combined. So being in the top 3 on the first page is your ultimate goal. If you want your website to be in the top 3 coveted spots, you should follow these important SEO tips and tricks.
  4. 4. Keywords are the backbone of SEO. Everything starts with the keyword. It is important to research which keywords are being used and not make assumptions. Pick the wrong keyword and you may be facing a lot of competition against well-established websites.This will make it extremely hard to rank on the first page, especially if your website is fairly new. Without proper research you may end up targeting a keyword that does not get any traffic. Getting to the first page in the top 3 spots for a keyword that only gets 10 searches a month isn’t going to help you very much. Sure, you’ll be able to say you’re on the first page, but it won’t help your business any. CHOOSE THE RIGHT KEYWORDS
  5. 5. Here are some SEO tips and tricks regarding keywords you will want to remember. • Don’t guess at what you think people are searching for. Use a keyword research tool to find out exactly what they are using as their search phrase. • Use long-tail keywords (these are simply keywords built off of your original keyword that are highly focused and targeted. An example would be if you’re selling Dog Food, a long-tail keyword would be All Natural Dog Food or Best Dog Food.) • Research your competition thoroughly for every keyword you want to rank for.Your success will come much easier and faster if you target keywords with lower competition when first starting out. CHOOSE THE RIGHT KEYWORDS
  6. 6. SEO tips and tricks for content include only using high quality, original and informative articles.Your content should also be directly related to the niche of your website. For people to spend time on your website, you need to give them the information they are looking for. If the only purpose of your articles is to sell your products, people may pass you by without giving your site another thought. If you can provide meaningful content, your readers will regard you as an authority on the subject and will be more likely to stay at your site. PROVIDE RELATIVE CONTENT
  7. 7. It is extremely important you do not write your articles as sales pitches. Remember, your article focus should be informative and high quality. Focusing your content on selling will most likely just turn people away. Most article marketing SEO tips and tricks you find will have this as their number 1 piece of advice. The selling piece comes in the resource box usually at the end of the article.This is where you can give some information about yourself and any products you sell which are related to the article content PROVIDE RELATIVE CONTENT
  8. 8. AVOID USING BLACK HAT SEO TACTICS With Google’s new algorithms you’ll want to only use white hat SEO tactics, especially when it comes to creating backlinks.There are many software programs out there that say they will build thousands of backlinks to your site in a matter of hours. Avoid these like the plague! Spammy links pointing to your website can actually hurt you more than help you. The quantity of links to your website is not nearly as important as the quality. Use caution when buying links online. Make sure to vary your links and anchor text when creating backlinks. Use your URL and words like “click here” or “read more” in addition to the anchor text you’re trying to rank for. I would recommend to use your keyword as your anchor text only around 40% to 60% of the time.
  9. 9. OTHER GOOD SEO TIPS AND TRICKS Another of the highly recommended SEO tips and tricks is do not use keyword stuffing in any of your articles. Keyword stuffing is where you over use your keyword for the purpose of ranking. Generally speaking, try to use your keyword once every 100 words when writing your articles. Try to use it in the first and last sentences of your article. Make sure your keyword is at the beginning of your title and you use it at least once in an H2 header.
  10. 10. OTHER GOOD SEO TIPS AND TRICKS Avoid creating fake accounts for blog posts, social bookmarking and building backlinks. Admittedly, these tactics will get you a couple of visitors every day, but they are very risky to use. Be consistent in the number of backlinks you are creating as well. If you create 1,000 backlinks one week and nothing for the next 4 weeks, the search engines will not see this as natural behavior. If you can create 1,000 backlinks consistently from week to week, that is fine. If not, scale back to a reasonable number you can consistently create.

  12. 12. When done properly, SEO will bring you hundreds or even thousands of targeted visitors per day. Keep in mind it usually will take some time before you start seeing your articles on the first page of search engines. This is not a fast process and a big reason why most people give up on their online business. But, if you apply these SEO tips and tricks, your website will be on its way to the top of the search engines and will ultimately increase your profits.
