What comes to our mind when we think of search engine promotion?<br />Getting a good ranking in a search engine.<br />
But this isn’t easy!<br />Search engines are getting smarter & intelligent everyday<br />
So how do you achieve your goals?<br />On page optimization is one of the very first step of SEO<br />Off Page Optimization<br />SMO<br />Advanced/Technical Techniques (HTML, CSS, Java Optimization)<br />
Title-the most important website optimization element.<br />Should be short but descriptive enough for your visitors to identify you and your business.<br />Target you title with the main keyphrase with which you are targeting your page.<br />Use Specific keywords in your title you want to rank with.<br />Your title should be appealing that it compels clicking.<br />
Don’t ignoreMeta Description<br />Include your Selling Point. Tell them what you offer and how you are different.<br />Including some of your keywords will give you some advantage in Google’s relevancy algorithm. <br />
Don’t miss out on impHTML Tags<br />The header tags [h1] [h2] [h3], Bold [strong], Italic [em] etc. Use them appropriately to define the page/post titles or the important sections of your website.<br />The text inside your header tags (e.g. [h1]) is given very high importance by the search engine. <br />----------------------------------------------------------------------------<br />Note: Don’t put your navigation, site name, bread crumbs in [h1] [h2] [h3] tags. These tags are to define headlines, so use them appropriately.<br />
Don’t Overstuff with Keywords<br />Maintain the balance between your keywords & your content.<br />Do proper keyword research (some of the tools are SEObook Keyword Suggestion tool, Google Adwords Keyword Tool & Overture Keyword Tool. )<br />Try to have a moderate keyword density so that it can help the search engine to determine that your page is indeed related & relevant to the keyword that you are targeting. <br />
Don’t Overstuff with Keywords<br />Synonyms & Related Keywords: I personally like to use synonyms instead of having a high keyword density. This helps to make my content sound natural but still helps in SEO. <br />Try long tail keywords as well to rank high<br />
Link Optimization – its imp but still we neglect this.<br />Optimize your internal & external outbound links for search engines.<br />Try using good anchor text when you are linking to other people.<br />A good & clean Internal Link Structure with proper use of anchor text will definitely help. E.g. “Credit Card Application” is a better anchor text compared to “click here” <br />
Image Optimization- Make it easy for the spider<br />Use your relevant keywords as ALT text. <br />always use meaningful file name for your images, use names like “apple-iphone-cover.jpg” instead of meaningless “DSC24045.jpg” <br />Keep image file name same or similar to the ALT text. <br />Whenever you want to link to your image, use the image keywords in your link text. Example: use “view an Apple iPhone”, instead of “Click here to view” as the anchor text. <br />
Some Quick Pointers<br />Avoid Link Farms- Make Navigation Hierarchy Easy<br />Connectyour important sections <br />Define your urlswith right keywords <br />Pay attention to content(unique, useful, fresh and keyword optimized )<br />Sitemaps, both XML and user facing<br />Avoid Common Mistakes(Duplicate Content, URL Variants of the same page, Duplicate Meta tags, Hidden text & links, Keyword repetition, Mirror Pages)<br />
