Before getting into blogging business I did seo two month course and also participated in two SEO project which gives me a lot practical help. But here I am not going to share complete SEO guide as it is not that important for a blogger. As a blogger I am going to share basic SEO tips that every blogger must follow.
I am just going to teach you SEO basics every blogger must follow but before that it is very important and recommended to make catchy headlines of your article including your targeted keyword in it. Before moving forward you must read how to write catchy headline that works.
So here are the SEO basics that every blogger must follow:
Every blogger must research the keyword which he is targeting to know if it is regularly searched by people or not.Using google keyword tool is best and free to tell how many monthly searches the targeted keyword or phrase has. Along with it also tell competition, estimated Avg, CPC and lot more.
Here I will teach you how to use google keyword tool.
a. Type the keyword or phrase that comes to your mind, like in my mind the keyword comes is “Basic SEO tips for blogger“. Then click on search button to get more details about the keyword. Here you will also see advanced options, after clicking on this you will clearly see the United States Search which means it is currently showing US search which you can change.
b. Currently it is showing you the broad result which means the targeted keyword + any other word with its searches but by clicking on exact it will show you the exact searches the keyword or phrases has.
c. So it is showing you the exact local and global monthly searches done by the people. You can also get lots of information from here like estimated Avg. CPC, ad share, search share and lot more. This you will find by clicking on relevance and choose what information you want about that keyword or phrases.
What I Do With It?
I typed “Basic SEO tips for blogger” and found two keywords which I like “SEO tips” and “SEO basics“. SEO tips has lot more searches as compared to SEO basics but the competition of SEO basics is less as compared to SEO tips. After thinking a lot I decided to go with “SEO Basics”. It is included in my catchy heading as you can see.
2.Writing SEO Friendly Content
Every blogger must try to write SEO friendly content. It is a very important thing that you must do. If you want google to rank you higher in search engines then you must do it.
Here are the tips to write SEO friendly content.
a. Repeat Targeted Keyword Again And Again: The keyword I am targeting i.e. SEO basics you might notice it everywhere in the post repeated several times. It increases the google value to get high ranks. The tips to repeat is don’t use “It“, instead of “It” use the complete keyword. For example, above I may write “here are the tips to do it” but instead I wrote “here are the SEO basics that every blogger must follow”, I use it completely to repeat my lovely keyword.
b. Make Link Of Same Page: Google loves to have backlinks but I noticed blogger doesn’t make backlinks separately for the article so it is good to make the backlink of the same page of your targeted keyword. This is what I did here if you noticed.
3.Including Targeted Keyword In The Anchor Text Links And Meta Tag
Having correct keyword and using them in heading, anchor text links and meta tag is utmost important to do. If the competition of the keyword is very small then surely this three things will give you top rankings in the Google search engine. Your anchor text and meta tag should not be your title actually it should be your targeted keyword.
4. Naming Of Photo’s
The photos you put in between must have a name and again the name of photo’s should be your lovely keyword about which you are providing information to your reader. Always change the blog photo’s name and also use original photos not copy cat. Google also shows images if it searched online and the competition in it is very less.
5. Description of the Article
After entering the title there is a description box and it is very important to fill it, you must include your targeted keyword in it. Google reads descriptions and from there it comes to know the article. And also, you need to describe your article in less than 160 words. Here is how to write a meta description if you have problems in writing it:
“Here SEO basics that every blogger must follow is discussed. All the SEO tips provided here is practical and it works.”
6. Using Tags
The tags you use increases the number of words of the same article. Now you have the chance to get a higher rank in google for two pages for a one page article.You must have at least one tag and it should be related to your article. The tag I used here is “SEO tips for every blogger”, it gives me a chance also to get higher rank for “SEO tips” keyword.
Above are the top 6 SEO basics that every blogger must follow and they are also used in this article. It’s not important to read this post but to do it practically. The more action you are not taking the more rankings in google you are loosing.
