There are some simple and easy to follow tips that you can use to get those rankings in a natural and organic manner.

1. Write keyword rich titles.

When you are, creating articles for Google to pick up on always ensure that you use the keyword in your title. Having the keyword you are writing about in your article will ensure that it get the attention that it needs. However, you do not want to use your keywords too often. Stuffing is considered bad form of writing and Google will just see it as spam. Your webpage will just then be lost in the void. When you are, creating a unique title Google also likes the words tips, tricks, etc.. This lets Google match up keyword with a searchers input. Remember, your main audience is going to be people searching for the information so make your article smooth and easy to read.

2. Keyword Metas

When you are, creating an article your keyword should be included in your summery description. The Meta description is used by Googles search bot to help you articulate exactly what your article is about. Summarize your article in as little as 3 sentences, however, the shorter the better. With the new panda, algorithm with Google if you try to stuff keywords in your summery it will be discarded and gone in the void.

3. 3 keywords per article

Ideally when you are writing an article you want to make sure you are only targeting one – three keywords at most. The main keyword in your title and in the first and last paragraph. Then you can use the 2 remaining keywords once in each of the middle paragraphs. If, you truly do not want to over stuff only use your keyword every 200 words that will give you about a 1 percent keyword to article ratio.

4. High Quality Articles

The times of low quality respun articles is over now it is only high quality meaningful content that will be accepted. If, you want your article to give you enough authority to determine what your readers needs exactly make sure that information is present. If, you provide well written original content,then your chances of being lost in the void are very small. Also, your article length should be more than 400 words for Googles search engine to consider it part of the search algorithm. I always suggest articles of 500 words or more.

5. Backlinks

If, you write well constructed and meaningful articles people will naturally start to back link to you. The organic back linking is a great way for your articles to generate traffic. However, social media, article rows, hub pages, are also great locations for you to get high quality back links for your site. If, you are building backlinks take about 15 minutes out of your day to create at least three backlinks to your articles or main page.

The internet is an ever changing platform with dos and don’ts thrown around like a rag doll. However, the quality content that you write is a fundamental that has been around since the internet was born.

The internet is changing rapidly. I hope you have a better understanding of how to write SEO articles.
