SEO Tips

If you follow these simple techniques you give your articles the best chance of being on the first page of the search engines! Be honest do you bother to go any further than the first page when you do a search on the internet?

I do not. Millions of other people do not either!

Writing articles and using SEO rules will help you Make Money Online. The most important thing is to write the best article you can. Good quality content is important for your reputation as a writer.

You can have a wonderful article published on the Internet with the correct grammar and spelling. You can supply all the facts and include photographs and videos to back up your article subject.

But very few readers will know your article exists unless you have the important keywords in the correct places.The rules are simple to understand and easy to implement. Below are the tips and advice that answers the question of How to earn money writing

Get Your Keywords

The Url is the first most important thing to get right. If your article is about games on Facebook the correct placement of keywords in your URL is essential. Think of how you would go about looking for information on games on Facebook.

What would you type into the Google or Yahoo search engines? Would it be Games on Face book or Facebook games? What happens when you type in Facebook only?

If you do this now you will see that the first keyword is Facebook login, Facebook, Facebook applications, Facebook search etc.You will not see games anywhere here because that comes under applications. So I would suggest a title and url for your article on facebook games would be: Facebook applications games. Best games previewed.

Or if you are writing about a particular game, say Farmville then it would be: Facebook applications games. Farmville game on Facebook reviewed and explained. The length of the URL should never be longer than ten words.

Headings and Keywords

Now you need to repeat these keywords in the title of your article. This is also a must in order to increase the traffic to your article online. It is no good just repeating the keywords without making it into a good title

Let’s use our Facebook url as an example. Facebook applications games. Farmville game on Facebook reviewed and explained.

The Title of your Article

I would write as the heading for this article. How To Play Farmville Game: Which Facebook Games Applications Are Best. Rules And Cheats Explained For The Beginner:

As you may have noticed each word starts with a capital letter. This is because Google and other search engines take this as each word is highlighted as important.

Result = You get more traffic.

A catchy title will not get readers to your article. It looks good and is grammatically correct but quite useless for getting traffic to your site. Think about what you type in when you are doing a search for anything on Google or other search engines. Use plain language and type in a sentence that is commonly used.

If these rules are followed you will definitely see a major improvement in your traffic and readers and therefore earnings from writing articles and blog posts online. You have written a good heading and included all the keywords in your URL

Keywords in your First Paragraph

Keywords in the text that increase the traffic to your webpage and article. You also must include these keywords in your first paragraph

You could say:

I enjoy playing the Facebook game Farmville. So I have decided to write about this Facebook application here. I play this game for hours so feel I am experienced enough to give my views on it. The rules are explained below and I have also reviewed some of the best ways to get gifts and FarmVille cash.

The above example shows how you have included all the keywords in the first paragraph. You must do exactly the same for the last paragraph. Write a summary of your article and include the keywords above.

There should be no longer than five words to each caption.Each word should also start with a capital letter. As examples read the captions on the photos in this article

Increasing Traffic to Your Website

Once you have learned the rules of keywords, tags and correct URLs then you as an online writer needs only to produce a good quality article, short story or poem. The search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing will find your articles and put it up high on their search pages.

Rules of Search Engine Optimization

Readers will then search for the topic you have written about and your article, poem or short story will be read. A satisfied reader is more likely to click on the adverts and this is how you as an online writer can earn money writing online. So if you learn how to increase traffic to your articles, blogs and websites then this will automatically increase your income.
