So this article will be more like teaching you why both On-Page SEO and Off-Page SEO both are important than a comparison between the two. On-Page SEO: On-Page SEO involves all the necessary SEO tricks we apply on our blog posts or web pages to get it to rank well on the search engines. On-Page SEO is very important and among the first steps to ranking well in SERP. On-Page SEO includes the following; Keyword research – including identifying the most effective keywords.

    • Netmediablog.com The Tech Blog 5 5 from some renowned bloggers I try to monitor how they are applying SEO on their site and I have noticed that some of them don’t really care about On-Page SEO, for example some of them don’t bother about the heading tags or even their keywords appearing in the URL’s. Off-Page SEO includes the following; Web 2.0 account creations (HubPages, Squidoo ect) Article marketing Directory submissions Blog commenting Forum posting Social media Profile page backlinks Bookmarking Press release submission RSS Feed Aggregators Remember like I said earlier, Off-Page SEO gets you in the top of the search engine rankings, while On-Page SEO keeps you there. How does Off-Page SEO actually do this? Google considers backlinks as a measure of your site’s relevance to a certain keyword and as such believes that any site with more quality backlinks pointing to it is more relevant than others. So before Google can begin to consider your site’s ranking based on bounce rate, time on site and other search engine ranking metrics, Off-Page SEO will have to push you to the top spot first. Only On-Page SEO cannot do it, except on a niche with low competition. Your site’s authority is a function of the number of links pointing back to it. If you check top ranking sites for any keyword on search engine results, you will notice that most top ranked sites have good number of backlinks. So does it mean that Off-Page SEO is more important?
    • Netmediablog.com The Tech Blog 6 6 Final Thoughts: On-Page SEO and Off-Page SEO are both important, if you have a well optimized post, fewer backlinks can shoot you into the top spot compared to when you have a poorly optimized site with same number of backlinks. You can’t use one without the other, each simply compliments the other. Remember Off-Page SEO gets you in the top, and On-Page SEO will keep you there and sustained. Learn both and use both to create a balance in your ranking technique and see your site succeed easily. Must Read: Search Engine Optimization Tips for Images Do you agree with me on this post?

    • Netmediablog.com The Tech Blog 7 7 Article 2: The Basic Onsite SEO Tips You Should Know Search Engine Optimization – SEO is often confused with building zillions of backlinks. People looking out for a good SERP ranking website tend to spend their time optimizing keywords and building backlinks. While it’s true that building backlinks will work well, we can’t ignore the fact that good onsite SEO is more important than off-site SEO. The backlinks you build will help establish the website’s importance while onsite SEO will confirm that those backlinks are relevant. In simple words, your onsite SEO supports your off-site optimization to boost your website’s page rank. If you have just started the search engine optimization game, then you need to know some basic onsite SEO tips to win the game. Here are a few basic tips for onsite SEO: 1. Meta Description Keywords and Tags: Meta Description is typically brief and specific information that search engines use to index your website. Try to write an interesting description to entice the user into clicking your website’s URL. Include keywords that are targeted in the meta tags. It’s better to avoid stuffing keywords in the description. These keywords and tags are some vital factors that determine the page rank of your website.
    • Netmediablog.com The Tech Blog 8 8 2. Unique Content with Title Tags: Have you ever heard of the phrase Content is King? Well, it’s beneficial to have good quality content than using other techniques. It’s better to ensure that the content on your website is unique. Try using Headings: • One H1 heading per page emphasizing the most important keyword. • H2-H5 heading optimizing the secondary terms. Synchronize each heading with title tags. A title tag is an important onsite optimization factor that ensures if the primary and secondary terms are targeted effectively. Ideally, a heading with 65 characters is advisable as it is Google’s cutoff. It’s better to include consistent branding in the title tags. When it comes to the word count, try to have enough content with a 1% keyword density that is informative and interesting. It’s also necessary that you keep the content on your website fresh by updating it every now and then. 3. Keyword Usage and Density: The key to keyword usage and density is to have high-quality and informative content with appropriate keywords that are not stuffed. It’s better to have the primary keyword in the first paragraph of your content in addition to title tags. Using different keyword variations as secondary terms or LSIs (Latent Semantic Index) and aiming for 3-5 instances in the entire content is ideal. SEO experts believe that even an 8% keyword density is solid to shoot for, if it reads well and doesn’t seem to be spam. If you are a novice, it’s better to avoid going beyond 1.5% as we do have penalties for keyword stuffing. 4. Image Tags: “A picture is worth a thousand words”. A good website has consistent SEO edited images in it. Upload images to a website and name these images using keywords. You can use hyphens to separate keywords as search engines read hyphens as spaces. Try using the alt attribute to optimize relevant images for targeted keywords. 5. High Quality Outbound links and Internal Linking:
    • Netmediablog.com The Tech Blog 9 9 Internal links can build strong webpages as it is just cross-linking related content available on other webpages. When it comes to outbound links, these are external sites or resources that you link to. Ensure the website’s credibility before you link. Remember, linking to a low quality site can ruin the reputation of your website. It’s not just this, there are certain other onsite factors like the comment system, the URL, the first line and the first word on your website, etc., that can affect your website’s SERP rankings. These simple tips when followed will surely boost your website’s page rank. However, with constant changes in search engine rules, it’s pretty hard to win the search engine optimization game.

Just as we optimize our blog posts to rank for certain keywords, so do images also rank for certain keywords in image searches. One major area of optimization that many bloggers ignore is in optimizing their images. Images have the ability to rank on the main search result pages; most search engines today like Google, Bing and Yahoo since implementing “Universal Search” can now rank well optimized images in its search results.

So let’s see how to properly optimize images for search engines. Must read: The Basic Onsite SEO Tips You Should Know 1. Use high quality images: High quality images have long been proven to attract clicks on search results, its natural for people to click on high quality images than some badly cropped or blurry images. So ensure to always use high quality images in your blog posts and maybe add some Photoshop effects to it. Properly edit images used in your blog posts as this could become a source of organic traffic to your blog. 2. Use Relevant File Names & images: Since people find images on search engine for certain keywords, ensure to use relevant file names and images that reflects the keyword of the blog post you are using it for so that people searching for such keywords can easily identify your image and follow it back to your site. Also ensure to use relevant images for your chosen keywords. You can’t be talking of computers while using the image of a horse in your blog post; this is not proper because horse is in no way relevant to computers. Rename the image file to contain the keywords you are ranking for and this way it will also be easy for search engines to find such images when someone search for such keywords. If your blog post is talking about internet surfing, use ‘internet-surfing’ as your file name rather than ‘surfing’ as you might have people searching for wave surfing clicking on such image and on getting to your blog quickly close the page and thus increasing your bounce rate, which in turn affects your search engine ranking and of course your earnings. 3. Take advantage of the Alt Tags: Have you ever imagined how search engines identify images? Search engine spiders make use of the Alt tags to find images. Search engine optimization for images involves using Alt tags that reflects the keywords of the blog post; this helps search engines understand what the image’s content is all about. Google and other search
    • Netmediablog.com The Tech Blog 12 12 engines strongly advise the use of Alt tags for images. Keep your Alt tags short and succinct and ensure it reflects what you want the viewers to see in the image. 4. Descriptive Text: Apart from using Alt tags for your images, proper SEO for your images involves the proper descriptive text for your images. Always use descriptive text with relevant words for what you want people to see in the image. Search engine spiders cannot read the texts on an image so they make use of the descriptive texts to understand what an image is all about. So adding descriptive text for your images can help search engine spiders determine what the content of the image is. 5. Use Proper Anchor Text: Best search engine optimization tips involves the use of proper anchor texts for your images, instead of linking to an image with the word ‘photo’ or ‘image’ use the proper keyword reflecting the image. Anchor text can play a major role in how your image is ranked for a keyword.

I have a firsthand experience in this and I can authoritatively tell you it works.

    • Netmediablog.com The Tech Blog 16 16 Article 5: Four Ways to Increase Site Traffic with Freshness Traffic is the nightmare of every blogger as it is almost certain every blogger will be worried on traffic drop to his site or blog. The world of internet content is a dynamic and ever-evolving environment, and one of the keys to increasing site traffic is to keep your own site’s content fresh and up-to-date. A lot of blogs have written on ways to increase site traffic but most overlooked the simple things you can do to increase your site traffic with freshness. Today i want to discuss the simple methods you can use to increase traffic to your site. Traffic could be organic or referred or direct, but the best form of traffic is the organic traffic. This method of traffic will forever send visitors to your site even after years of publishing your content. So i will be focusing more on it in this blog post.
    • Netmediablog.com The Tech Blog 17 17 Four ways to increase Site Traffic with Freshness: The following four methods will help you to keep your content fresh, and improve your traffic statistics. 1. Make sure the content of your site is friendly to SEO (“search engine optimization”): One of the main sources of traffic for any site will be the visitors who arrive at the site by searching for relevant terms and topics. It’s important to make sure your site will show up when people search for related topics, and for that, you need to make the site SEO-friendly. Using high-value keywords and keyword-phrases in the written content, and working to build links to your site from other websites, will help to boost the rank of your website as it appears in the results of a search. 2. Do some keyword research to maximize the SEO of your site when you write content: Use a product like the Google’s free Adwords Keyword Tool to get suggestions of relevant phrases that are used most often by online searchers. You don’t want the use of keywords to interrupt the natural flow of your writing or jam up your text with nonsensical repetitions, but knowing what keywords are the most commonly used by searchers, you can incorporate those into the natural flow of your text. 3. Include eye-catching images and graphics on your site: You can find all manner of images through services like Flickr, and you can also invigorate your site with your own photos, graphics, drawings, and images. A page full of nothing but text will not catch a reader’s immediate interest–and in addition to being eye-catching, graphics and photos can often add a great deal to the content itself. Take care to meet licensing requirements of you use images you find elsewhere on the net. 4. Invite other bloggers to author guest blogs on your site: This freshens up your own site’s content with fresh viewpoints and writing styles, and often results in a reciprocal invitation to guest blog on other sites. Increasing your own visibility by guest-blogging elsewhere can bring more readers to your site after they discover you as a guest on another site. These four simple tactics can keep your content fresh, and keep the internet traffic flowing to your site.

Though there may be several methods of driving traffic to ones blog but I want to discuss on driving traffic to your blog through StumbleUpon today. StumbeUpon is a social bookmarking site that allows you to share your blog contents with other StumbleUpon community users. So many people may disagree that stumbleUpon is not the best traffic source for a blogger due to the low conversion of visitors and the fact that the visitors from StumbleUpon may not spend much time on a site, I tend to disagree with such claims with the following reasons. Unique and great content: The main secret to StumbleUpon success is great and unique content. You don’t expect a visitor to spend a lot of time on a poorly written article; users will quickly hit the dislike button and move on when they stumble on such posts.

All your posts may not go viral, but one day a good and well written post may and will raise awareness for your blog and everyone will now want to see your other posts thereby discovering your blog and that will be a massive boast to your traffic and earnings. Motivation and Encouragement: Another advantage of traffic from StumbleUpon is that it encourages us to write and keep writing knowing that someone somewhere is reading it. Imagine having a post go viral and 100k people have viewed it and liked it; imagine the encouragement you will have for it. It will encourage and motivate you as a blogger. Encouragement and motivation are two great tools ay blogger needs to be successful. Backlinks: A shared post on StumbleUpon may not be recorgnised as a backlink, but it can generate a lot of backlinks when many people stumbles on it and liked it. A well written article or post shared on StumbleUpon may result into a lot of backlinks improving your ranking on google.
