Website SEO: Getting Better Rankings for your Blog

Website SEO: Getting Better Rankings for your Blog

blog

Bloggers who are interested in reaching a large audience with their blog should consider paying close attention to search engine optimization of their blog. Reaching a large audience may be a priority for a number of different reasons. One of the obvious reasons to attempt to generate increased traffic to a blog is to generate a profit. Bloggers who rely on high blog traffic for their revenue are obviously interested in increasing traffic.

However, bloggers who create their blog to promote a cause may also be interested in increasing traffic simply to allow their message to reach a larger audience. Regardless of the reason to want to increase traffic, one of the best ways to do this is by optimizing the blog for search engines. This article will discuss the importance of search engine rankings and offer help for optimizing a blog. 

Are Search Engine Rankings Important?

The importance of high search engine rankings is they can contribute to increased Internet traffic to the blog. This is because Internet users who use search engines to find information on a particular topic are much more likely to visit websites which appear on the first page of the search results than they are to visit websites which appear on subsequent pages of the search results.

The websites appearing on the first page of the search results are likely to get the most traffic. However, Internet users are not likely to search through more than a page or two of the search results when looking for more information on a particular subject.

High search engine rankings essentially act as free advertisement for a blog or website. This is because many website users rely on popular search engines to assist them in finding useful information on the Internet. The search engines apply complex algorithms to evaluate websites and rank them accordingly for specific search terms. As a result Internet users put a great deal of value on the search results produced and trust these results to lead them to the best available websites relevant to the keywords they specified in the search.

How to Optimize your Blog for Search Engines

One of the most common ways to optimize a blog or website for search engines is through the use of relevant keywords. Specifically the practice of applying specific keyword densities to the content of the blog is a common search engine optimization tactic employed. Blog owners and others who attempt to optimize their websites do not always agree on the optimal density for keywords but many believe a percentage of approximately 2%-3% is appropriate.

Another method for optimizing a search engine optimization is to place relevant keywords into the code of the website. This includes the title tags and META tags. This is important because search engines often consider the prominence of keywords when evaluating a website. This refers to the location in which the keywords first appear. Placing keywords early in the content of the website is helpful but it is important to note the search engines view the code first so keywords appearing before the body of the blog will be crawled first by the search engines.

Blog owners can also help to increase their search engine rankings by generating back links to their blog. This can be accomplished in a number of different ways. One way to do this is to find other websites willing to place a link to the blog on their website. This is beneficial because many search engines factor the number of links to a website into their ranking algorithm because these links are considered to be one website vouching for the validity of another website.

Some website owners may be willing to do this in return for a link to their website on your blog. This is known as reciprocal linking and some search engines may not value this link as highly as a link which is not reciprocated. There are also some link exchange programs but these links may not be beneficial because many search engines consider the rank of the website linking to your blog. Therefore, if the website linking to your blog does not rank well, the back link will not improve search engine rankings significantly.

I hope this blog post has helped you learn more about the complex world of Website SEO and how to get better rankings for your blog!

I will see YOU at the bank!

Social Networks: Stuff You Shouldn’t Post on Social Networks

Social Networks: Stuff You Shouldn’t Post on Social Networks

social network

Social networks on the web have truly exploded, especially over the past couple of years.  Social networking websites are becoming very popular because they are simple to use, easy to find friends and family, connect with old friends, and develop relationships with other social networkers, often ones that share the same interests as you.

To find those individuals, you first must join a social networking website and create your own profile. It is often advertised that your social network profile is the key to making and finding friends online.

Are Social Networks Important?

As previously mentioned, your social networking profile is important when it comes to meeting other internet users. This is because other internet users are looking to chat with someone who has the same interests as they do. Without your own personal profile, it would be difficult or impossible to tell what your interests are. That is why social networking profiles are not only important, but they are needed in today’s tech lifestyle.

When it comes to social networking profiles, a lot of focus has been placed on what you should include in your profile or display on your profile. It has been said that pictures produce the best responses, as well as detailed personal information. Although a picture and personal information may help to increase your page views, you may be getting views that you do not necessarily want. Despite what you may believe, most social networking websites do not have restrictions on who can view your personal profile. In fact, even those that do not belong to your online community can easily see profile.

Be Cautious on Social Networks!

Since anyone, literally anyone, can see your social networking profile, on most social networking websites, you are advised to be cautious. Essentially, this means that instead of focusing on what you should put in your online profile, you should be focusing on what not to put.  This is one the best ways to protect your safety, both on and offline.

As previously mentioned, pictures are often recommended with social networking websites. If you are interested in positing a personal picture of yourself in your online profile you can do so, but you are advised to carefully choose that picture.  While you will want to look your best, you are advised against posting a picture that is too revealing or seductive in nature.  Most internet users can look at these types of pictures without feeling a thing, but for others these types of pictures spell danger.

If you make the decision to post a picture of yourself in your social networking website profile, you need to be careful about the rest of the information that you post. Although you may not necessarily think about it, a picture is just a picture, but combined with your name and address, it could be a deadly combination. You are advised to only post your first name in your profile. This will make it more difficult for anyone to try and contact you off of the internet.

It is also advised that you carefully choose your location. A large number of online social networking sites require that you select a city, as well as a state. If it is allowed, you may only wish to list your state and not the city. If you are required to list the city and the state that you live in, you may want to think about using a nearby city or town, especially if you live in a small town. If an internet predator wanted to contact you and you lived in a small town, it could be fairly easy for them to find you. That is why it is advised that you carefully select the answer to the location question.

In addition to the above precautionary measures, it is advised that you do not post detailed information on your children, the location of your home, your income, or when you will be leaving for vacation. By keeping these and the above mentioned points in mind, you should be able to enjoy online social networking without having to always look behind your back.

Successful Advertising: Characteristics of a Successful Advertisement

Successful Advertising| A Few Characteristics of a Successful Advertisement

Successful Advertising | A Few Characteristics of a Successful Advertisement

A lot of small businesses today struggle with successful advertising because they don’t have the resources or time to do it right.

The results are simply crap due to lack of innovation and critical masterminding with a team of professional marketers like myself ;).

Whether their ads are put in a local newspaper or posted on a website, the money invested should gain the customers interest and additionally their business.

There are some typical mistakes small businesses and so called “professional marketers” do when coming up with and posting the advertisement, which leads to the failure of it.

Go big or go home…

That is exactly what these small firms think when they want to try advertising their product for the first time. They think bigger and select a necessity where they need to invest a lot of capital, but do not reach their desired market. Like if a company specializes in designing graphics and want to help out people who had disappointing results from their previous graphic designs and the company chooses to advertise a full page in the local paper instead of running advertisement in a art/graphic design magazine, then not too many of the designers will notice the advertisement and the advertisement does not get the desired attention.

So the point is to come up with the best advertising strategy, which will increase the probability of the ad getting viewed and the right consumers wanting to buy the product or get enrolled for the provided service. Studies can be carried out on the market and targeted audience can be narrowed down. Once getting the list of newspapers, magazines and websites meant for the customers in mind, find out how many readers they have and the price for posting the ad.

Each and everyday people are subjected to almost three thousand commercials. That is a huge number and if someone wants to be noticed, they should try and be different. Not only the services and product sold should be unique in the market, the advertisement should be to.

For example, if a business selling mattresses says, “We sell mattresses”, it will not make a statement and will be passed off as any other mattress advertisement. But if they say, “Our mattresses are of the highest quality”, it will make the advertisement stand out in the crowd. The advertisement should also focus on the uniqueness of the product and how it is better compared to the competitors’ product.

Focusing on the problems of the customers and giving a solution for them, is what a customer demands. A customer does not buy a product; he buys benefits in the form of a product. The real value of the product should be realized and a clear picture of it should be presented to the customer so he will be able to relate with the product. If the advertisement does not specify the solution it can provide, the customers will never know of it. So focusing on the customers problem is what some ads miss.

The last thing missing in most of the advertisement is motivation towards the customers. If the advertiser has designed the advertisement and the customer had read the advertisement, all efforts and money invested will be wasted if he does not get up and do something about it.

It should not be assumed that the customer knows what to do; instead the advertisement should influence the mind of the customer and should tell him what to do. Call of action is the final role of advertising. It should call for information, or visiting the store or even visiting the online store. The message should sound confident and right to the point.

I will see you on the beaches of the world…

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.
