Understanding SEO from Blogging Perspective

Most new bloggers who are just starting out on blogging, believe that, it is all about simple writing and expecting people to discover your content on the Internet, in one way or other while others, think that social media is the only best way to drive traffic.

Yes, social media is a great way to market your blog, but you have to spend countless of hours and resources to ensure your content reach your desired audience. A few bloggers know about Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and how if well implemented can bring in free traffic from search, without that much effort.

Implementing SEO on your blog, can improve ranking in Search Engines. So what are these Simple SEO tips?

Lets look at them in details as follows:

Link Building

Link Building is all about connecting different elements on your website i.e. pages and posts on your website, and or with other external websites or blogs.

You can build links on your blog in different ways:

  • Connecting related posts or articles on your blog
  • Guesting posting on Authority sites in your niche, find blogs in your niche, and build relationship with the site owners, you can then request to post a guest post on them.
  • Commenting on other blogs, but most people misuse this method, to effectively build links through blog commenting, ensure you leave comprehensive comments on blogs, something that would convince someone to find more information about you, or your site.
  • You can post in Forums, while leaving behind your site link

Write High Quality Content

Focus on writing well researched articles, that can provide useful information to your audience. Google likes high quality content.

Write Headings that are good both for People and Search Engines

Although most people would make a mistake of focusing so much on optimizing content for search engines, until they forget that actually they are writing for people and not machines. While it is good to write good headings that would rank well in search engines, ensure that they are also attractive to people. Use the right keywords, that make sense to people and not just search engines. The ultimate goal here is to find the right balance between the people and search engines.

Use the Right Keywords

Using the right keywords, is an important determining factor when it comes to getting a targeted traffic from search engines. Use Keyword research tools like Google Keyword Planner to find the right keywords for your content.

Keep an eye in any changes with regard to SEO

With the advent of Internet Technology, things keep changing daily, ensure you are update with current trends in SEO. You may find that your site has lost ranking simply because you haven't implemented the latest SEO update!

Bottom Line

Optimizing your blog for search engines is important task that every blogger needs to know about to benefit from free search traffic. When you are starting out on your blogging journey keep in mind these simple SEO Tips.
