Great Content –
Another smart way to way to optimize your blog for search engines is produce the best content you can. When you put great stuff out there people notice and will link to it and share it.. Each new link you get to your post from others will be a vote the search engines will see and like. When you produce great content time after time, people will come to your site (along with the search engine rankings).
Link to other Posts –
Linking to other blog posts that are relevant to the topic you’re currently covering helps search engines crawl deep within your site. It will also help your readers find more information of interest which will hopefully bring them back often. Happy readers and search engines that can find a lot of linked content help drive up your traffic and get more of your site indexed in search!
Please Share –
Search engines index very quickly what is shared on social media. The more shares the better! Give your readers options to share your content across the web by placing social media buttons at the beginning and end of your blog posts. Please make it easy for them or they won’t do it. The wider you’re able to spread your post the more likely you’ll build back links from people finding your content and that it’s relevant to search engine users.
Get Those Backlinks –
Backlinks can be built through blog commenting, social network participation, social bookmarking and guest posting. Each new backlink increases the overall likelihood that your content will be found and rank well within search engines. We are going to have a post devoted to developing backlinks this week if you don’t understand how to do this check back. I built my first business by working tirelessly building backlinks!
Fresh Stuff Please –
The more frequently you publish new blog content the more often search engines will have to crawl your site. Although you do not have to publish every day it is important to keep a consistent schedule.Twice a week at least and more if you can! Not only will you send new visitors to your blog when publishing frequently but because search engines are spidering your blog they are more likely to honor you with higher search engine rankings (and quicker search engine placement).
