To optimize your whole area for search engines, you’ll need to follow these basic gratuities 😛 TAGEND

1. Make the webpage about one thing.
It can be about other material, too, but selected one primary topic that is most essential to your message.

This step is important, so you may want to do a little keyword research before to choose their own topic.

2. Mention keywords where they matter most.
Include your “one thing” in the area title, domain name, description, tagline, keywords, blog categories, page names, 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( which I use ).

3. Link to internal pages on your site.
A lot of content management systems automatically do this, but if yours doesn’t, you’ll want to be intentional about relating to your most important pages instantly from your homepage and cross-linking them with each other.

4. Use a permalink formation that includes keywords.
Some sites have “ugly” permalink structures that use quantities to recognize 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 😛 TAGEND

https :// yoursite.com/? p= 12

It should look more like this 😛 TAGEND

https :// yoursite.com/ coolpage /

5. Remove anything that slows down your website.
Page load days are important, so get rid of any non-essentials that bog down your website.

These may including music players, large portraits, flash graphics, and unnecessary plugins.

6. Use keywords in your images.
Include texts that reflect you’re topic in the portrait title, description, and alt attributes.

Also, re-title the record name if it doesn’t reflect your primary keywords ( e.g. writing-tips.jpg instead of d1234. jpg ).

7. Link to other websites with relevant content.
You can do this by including a blogroll, associate listing, 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 associates, this tells search engines you are a trusted power on your particular topic.

8. Update your website frequently.
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.

9. Make sure your website is indexed by search engines.
A lot of search engines will automatically find and indicator your content, but don’t count on it.

You want to be sure locomotives like Google, Bing, and Yahoo are crawling your website so that people are finding you online.( You can add them instantly if they’re not .)

10. Have other websites link to you.
This is really, really important when it comes to SEO. The bummer is that it’s not something you can necessarily dominance. Other than establishing excellent content, the only thing you can do is ask( which occasionally drives ).

My counsel is to spend the time you would trying to convince somebody to link to you on exactly writing great content. And, start guest posting on other blogs.

Regardless of what you do, know that inbound links are essential to SEO.

11. Stop changing your domain name.
The age of your URL is a factor in your site’s investigation ranking, so be patient.

If you’re launching a brand-new blog every six months, you’ll never see your website get the price it deserves.

12. Write like a human.
None of the above matters if you develop content that sounds like a robot wrote it.

Write great material, follow the steps above, have patience, and you’ll interpret results.
