10 SEO tips for your Website/Blog | Lafandar.org
As in most of my previous post I have discussed the importance of right SEO for page views and reducing the bounce rate of the website. Today, we’re talking about optimizing your whole site, not just a single page, for search engines.
After choosing the right SEO keywords but before writing a ton of content, you have some choices to make.
So think through this carefully.
Before you begin, you need to know the following:
- What you’re site is about
- What the purpose is
- How committed you are
Once you’ve settled on those three things, then it’s time to get to work.
1. Set your Website/Blog Niche
This is might be another topic but set site niche or topic to be published on blog should of similar niche. Nobody is interested in reading about fashion article on a WP Blog.
It is easy for the Search engine to optimize the site too.
2. Mention Keywords
Include your “one thing” in the site title, domain name, description, tagline, keywords, blog categories, page titles, and page content.
If you’re on WordPress, you can change a lot of this in the General Settings or through a plugin like All in One SEO Pack.
3. Link to other post in between article.
A lot of content management systems automatically do this, but if yours doesn’t, you’ll want to be intentional about linking to your most important pages directly from your homepage and cross-linking them with each other.
4.Permalinks can better explain Keywords
Some sites have “ugly” permalink structures that use numbers to identify pages.
Don’t do this. It’s bad for SEO and just doesn’t look good.
Use a URL structure that includes text, and make sure you include keywords in your URLs.
So instead of having a page’s URL be this:
It should look more like this:
5. Remove content/Scripts/images that slow down your website/Blog
Page load times are important, so get rid of any non-essentials that bog down your website.
These may including music players, large images, flash graphics, and unnecessary plugins.
6. Link to same Niche Blogs/Websites
You can do this by including a blogroll, link list, or resources page on your website.
Of course, do it sparingly, as each outbound link is a “vote” for another site. However, if you do it well and people click your links, this tells search engines you are a trusted authority on your particular topic.
7.Update your website regularly
Sites with dynamic content often rank higher than those with static content. That’s why blogs and directories (like Wikipedia) do so well on search engines. They are constantly being updated with new content.
8.Be Sure about Search Engine Indexing
A lot of search engines will automatically find and index your content, but don’t count on it.
You want to be sure engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo are crawling your site, so that people are finding you online. (You can add them directly, if they’re not.)
9. Age of the Domain
The age of your URL is a factor in your site’s search ranking, so be patient.
If you’re launching a new blog every six months, you’ll never see your site get the value it deserves.
10. Write like Human (Be professional)
None of the above matters if you create content that sounds like a robot wrote it.
Write great stuff, follow the steps above, have patience, and you’ll see results.
I realize that many of you have already started blogging, but many of these tips can be applied retroactively. And once if you done this, you can start writing regular content.
