Comprehensive SEO Tactics For Bloggers
In the yester year, everything was simple when it came to blogging. All you had to do was write something good and people would find it. Spread the word out and you gained hits on your hand. Well, now this is just a fraction of the equation. Creating a blog has certainly become tough today. Competition has become fierce and cutthroat. There are generally over a million of bloggers competing right now. Not only do you need to be a good writer, but rather you need to understand the principles of Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
You can produce a master piece blog, but if you have not yet grasped the principles of SEO then your blog is certainly going to be a lonely place.
These are simply word phrases that are used by search engines in ranking your pages (i.e. Google). In order for you to create an effective SEO blog you need to have a keyword density of between 2 – 5% within your blog post. You must also make sure that your main page is optimized with regards to the keywords and these should also reflect within the URL. You will also find it necessary to have the titles optimized with the keywords.
Content is KING
“Content is Kings” is one keyword that has been overused on the internet. Well, the fact that is has been overused certainly does not deviate it from being true. You can lure people to a website with inadequate content but certainly they will not keep coming back. At the beginning content is never important. Many will often read your site at their first visit. Well, this certainly gives you room to grow as a writer. Eventually as people get to your web page you will need good convincing content in order to make them your site regulars.
Quantity also plays a crucial role. Regard every post that you make as the front door to your Blog. If you have more doors available, the more people finding your Blog. Bit most importantly if you are to choose between quality and quantity, quality will be the way forward.
♦ Behind the Scenes
There are a few tricks played behind the scenes that make things happen. Effective SEO techniques are all the same for all Bloggers. Optimized URL’s are the keys to success. Meta Description and Meta Names are of paramount importance.
♦ Site Design
The other side of “behind the scenes” is the site presentation. Design can improve or destroy a site. If your site is scattered or rather not easy to navigate then certainly people will not keep visiting the site. There is a lot that goes on within the site design but one may never discover this at first.
The opposite of “behind the scenes” is the site presentation. Design can make or break a site. If the design of the website is of poor quality and cluttered or plain UGLY then people will not stay. There really is a lot going on with site design that is not seen at first. The best advice is always to start simple and continue to refine the site.
