  1. 1. SEO Core sites - Munich
  2. 3. Keyword Research Useful forum thread about using exact match / broad match: Keyword research is the foundation of SEO. It should be thorough and regularly referred to when creating new posts, pages, tags, categories, links – pretty much everything you do. Here’s how to do it:
  3. 4. Forget keyword stuffing <ul><li>Most of you who have encountered SEO before will most likely agree that the majority of the advice out there is </li></ul><ul><li>telling you to put keywords all over your posts in order to get Google rankings. To a certain extent this is true... But </li></ul><ul><li>usually not to the extent to most people think. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Then there is the Meta description – this does not </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>have any bearing on rankings but should be optimised </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To encourage users to click on your result in the </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>search engines </li></ul></ul><ul><li>There are certain elements of a page which have more bearing than others on rankings: </li></ul><ul><li>Page Title </li></ul><ul><li>Header 1 (H1) or post title </li></ul><ul><li>Page copy </li></ul>
  4. 5. Utilise your earned media <ul><li>As well as keyword research via Adwords, I would recommend </li></ul><ul><li>regularly researching: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>popular topics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>questions that are being asked </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>conversations that are being had </li></ul></ul><ul><li>etc. in places such as Twitter and Facebook </li></ul><ul><li>Ask your Facebook / twitter fans / followers: </li></ul><ul><li> - What kind of articles they would like to see </li></ul><ul><li> - What pros they'd like you to interview </li></ul><ul><li> - What products they'd like you to review </li></ul><ul><li>We have Facebook / Twitter fans for a reason, most people don’t really utilise them to their full </li></ul><ul><li>potential... Content is king in the SEO world, so find out what content people want, and they will come </li></ul>
  5. 6. It’s all about Tagging <ul><li>Because our sites follow a magazine format – many categories don’t offer much opportunity for optimisation. </li></ul><ul><li>Tagging is a better way of grouping relevant content together and on Wordpress this is easy: </li></ul>
  6. 7. Initiate conversation <ul><li>The best way of keeping posts fresh for search engines is to gain comments. The more comments you can get on a post the better. </li></ul><ul><li>The best way to do this is to actively seek comments and social interaction : </li></ul><ul><li>Ask Facebook / Twitter fans to leave comments </li></ul><ul><li>Comment on your own posts - asking questions and for opinions on the post / information contained in the post. This is a great call to action for many blog readers… sometimes they just need a nudge. </li></ul><ul><li>Run a comment competition – offer a prize for the best comment of the week / month / 3 months (whichever) </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Like’ your own posts! </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Share’ your own posts </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Tweet’ you own posts </li></ul><ul><li>Ask people you already know to leave comments – even friends and family members (OK so this is slightly contrived but a fairly standard practice among many) </li></ul>
