  18. 18. Blogging<br />You can have an:<br />Onsite Blog<br />Offsite Blog<br />Both are useful for different goals, yet both should follow similar ‘blogging rules’<br />Update often<br />What is “often”?<br />Most agree at least once a week new content is needed. You can update once a day.<br />Centered around 1 keyword and specific to 1 topic<br />Best to stick to the rule to keep the KW in the:<br />H1 of the blog,<br />3 times in the body text and<br />Ensure the KW is in the url<br />Copyright: Paul Vesely<br />
  19. 19. Types of blogs<br />Two main different types of blogs<br />Onsite blog<br />Updated content when Google scrawls site (very important)<br />Additional KWs<br />Great casual way of updating your site visitors about new products<br />Extra internal links (can be anchor text links)<br />Offsite blog<br />One way inlinks<br />Great area to swap links as part of a ‘link weave’ (aka link wheel)<br />Build up page rank for your blogs themselves so they have power and a voice in the industry<br />Share link juice to a variety of your websites to keep a non circular flow of links (and no mutual links meaning you should not backlink from your websites to your blogs)<br />The blogs themselves can rank organically and lead to more business<br />Copyright: Paul Vesely<br />
  20. 20. Make your blog count<br />The more often you update and submit to social bookmarking sites the more your blog in general will rank organically<br />Submit to (a few examples):<br />Reddit<br />Diggit<br />Stumbleupon<br />LinkedIn Groups<br />Facebook pages<br />On your blog:<br />Facebook like button<br />“Add this”<br />Google +1 button<br />Copyright: Paul Vesely<br />
  21. 21. Blog Content<br />Not too long (around 2 paragraphs).<br />Based around 1 topic<br />Not always linking back to your website<br />Finding inlinks for the blog<br />Can use youtube clip or recent online NP article<br />Not formal language (in general)<br />Needs activity at least once a week<br />When we write the blogs they must use:<br />1) Researched KW’s and<br />2) Anchor text hyperlinks<br />Copyright: Paul Vesely<br />
  22. 22. What does a spider see?<br />Add Google tool bar and page rank to your browser.<br />Click on the cached snapshot of the page.<br />Google 'scache is the snapshot taken of the page as it was crawled by spiders eggooglebot on the web.<br />View text only<br />Copyright: Paul Vesely<br />
  23. 23. Google’s secret algorithm<br />This is what makes Google so powerful as a search engine finding relevant links for its users.<br />The Google algorithm is a tightly guarded secret (and insiders say constantly changing).<br />Basic’s:<br />Text matching (from your search terms)<br />Page rank<br />Copyright: Paul Vesely<br />
  24. 24. Caffeine and Panda updates<br />Caffeine & Panda appears to put more emphasis on social media such as Facebook, My Space and blogs<br />Unique content and page load times<br />Even with the changes, most white hat optimization tactics will continue to prevail<br />Copyright: Paul Vesely<br />
  25. 25. Algorithm changes for Google<br />Each algorithm change is supposed to revitalize the Google algorithm to provide users with a better search experience<br />The official word is that the update is:<br /> "the first step in a process that will let us push the envelope on size, indexing speed, accuracy, comprehensiveness, and other dimensions."<br />Copyright: Paul Vesely<br />
  26. 26. Your response to Google’s Algorithm<br />Higher keyword density. – no more than 7% keyword density<br />Faster index. Most people report queries are returned at faster speeds.<br />New – Indstant Page launch in the next few months<br />Fresher results. Results are more current, including blog posts from the last few days.<br />More emphasis on social media. SERPs contain more sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Blogger, etc. <br />Less emphasis on universal search. While this is a popular feature and was also implemented by other search engines, it doesn't help Google's paid search revenue. Therefore, universal results will be moved lower on the page to make paid search more visible.<br />Increased prominence of video. While news and image listings moved further down the page, SERPs are prominently featuring video listings. <br />Keywords in domain name. Google has always favored keywords in the domain name, and the new SERPs seem to weigh keyword domain names even higher. If you're launching a new site, a microsite with your keywords embedded within the URL might be wise.<br />Copyright: Paul Vesely<br />
  27. 27. What tactics to use?<br />Create a site with clear hierarchy and text links. <br />Create a site map with links to important pages. <br />Create information-rich pages describing your content clearly and accurately. <br />Use keywords in text. <br />Give preference to text over images. <br />Make <title> elements and ALT attributes descriptive and accurate. <br />Check for broken links and correct HTML. <br />Keep outboundlinks on a given page to a reasonable number (<3 per page). <br />Avoid hidden text or hidden links. <br />No cloaking or sneaky redirects. <br />Don't load pages with irrelevant keywords. <br />Don't create multiple pages, subdomains, or domains with duplicate content. <br />Don't create pages with malicious behavior (phishing, viruses, trojans, badware). <br />Copyright: Paul Vesely<br />
