The Beginner’s Guide to SEO

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization which means if you want to get higher ranking in search results than you have to optimize your content. You can also call, it is the process of getting organic or free traffic from the search results on search engines. There are some main points you have to keep in your mind while optimizing your content.

All major search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo have primary search results, where web pages and other content such as articles, videos, tutorials, local business listings are shown and ranked based on what the search engine considers most relevant to users. So, if you want to optimize your website than stick with this article and I’m giving you 5 most important topics to get higher search results.

Relevant Domain Name:

The 1st thing and most important thing is the domain name. After Google Penguin Update, Google is very strict about “Web Spam” & “Relevancy”. So, your domain name should be relevant to your content or search terms. Like if you are writing about WordPress than your domain should be like “wordpress-articles.xxx” or “wordpress-tutorials.xxx” Instead of these domains, if you select another domain name which is not relevant to your content than it will affect the search ranking.

You can purchase domain name around $10/year which is not very expensive right? Once you optimize your homepage, you also have to optimize your other pages like contact page, about page etc.

Title Tag:

Once you select relevant domain name then you should know about some HTML tags which are very important to optimize your content. 1st is title tag which is used to give a title of the web page or content. So, you have to specify the title with title tag which is very important to get higher search ranking. Make sure, the title is also relevant to your content. Like if you are writing about HP Spectre – The Premium Ultrabook than you should give title “HP Spectre Review”.

2nd and the most important tag is h1 tag which is used to give a heading but h1 means heading 1 which is large heading. You can use heading tag h1 to h6 to give different headings to your content. But at the starting of the article or after title you can use this h1 tag to give heading. As per Yoast SEO, you have to add only one h1 tag in your content and after that, you can use any h2-h6 tag in your content. Yoast SEO plugin is the best plugin to optimize WordPress website.

Content:

Content the most important thing to any website or blog. So, the 1st thing is you have to write awesome and very unique content so that people can visit your website or blog more. If you write something unique than chances of getting more traffic is high. So, write unique content. You should also take care of target keywords and you should add target keywords into the content. Target keywords are the keywords which you target as per your content. But make sure you have to manage keyword density otherwise if you add so many keywords in one article than the search engine gets confused which is called Keywords Stuffing. If you are using WordPress then you have to download Yoast SEO plugin which gives you complete information about your content, keyword density, readability etc.

While writing an article you should link your keywords which means if you are writing an article and you also wrote previous than you should add a keyword which is related to the previous article and link it with the previous one which is called internal Linking and it is very helpful as SEO perspective. You should add at least one internal link into your content.

External Links:

You can build external links by two methods, 1st is written unique content so that other people share this on social media or their website. 2nd is submitted your content to other websites and insert links to your website in it. External linking is also very helpful to get more traffic from other websites and get higher ranking in search results.

Sites that link to you which have a Google PageRank Rating of 6 or above will help tremendously in your link popularity and Google Ranking.

SEO Made Simple: A Step-by-Step Guide

SEO Made Simple: A Step-by-Step Guide

Hey, Today’s article is very important for bloggers and website owners. In this tutorial, I’m going to talk about SEO (Search Engine Optimization). I think you might know about it but who are new to the word SEO then you should stick with this article till the end. I’m sure after this tutorial you have an idea about basic SEO. So, let’s get started with basics.

What is SEO?

seo

SEO Search Engine Optimization, which means search engines like Google, Bing or Yahoo etc. have their own rules & regulations or protocols to index anything, in their search result. In a simple way, I have an article about SEO and I post on my blog than Google, Bing or Yahoo etc. doesn’t directly index your article is search results. So, you have to follow some rules and regulations of particular search engines then only they will index your blog or any article in search results. So, this rules and regulations called SEO.

Once you complete your article then you have to optimize it according to search engine’s protocols for better indexing. This optimization of your content according to search engine protocols is called SEO. If you are running a blog and you published some articles and when you open Google and type keywords of your article and then you didn’t find your article in search results, it means you haven’t optimized it.

So, SEO is very important to grow your blog, get more traffic and better index in search engine.

Different Types of SEO

There are 2 types of SEO. On Page Optimization & Off Page Optimization. Both are very important to get better ranking on search engine.

Content Optimization, interlinking your pages within your blog and submit a sitemap to search engines are called On Page SEO. Most of you are aware with this SEO.

Commenting on Forum with your signature, Commenting with your site link, Guest Posting, Social Bookmarking, and Directory Submission are including in Off Page SEO. I think you might not know about this but it is very helpful to get better ranking. So, don’t ignore this. Weight Hat SEO and Black Hat SEO are including in Off Page SEO.

Get started with Basic SEO & Some Important Tips

To get started with Basic SEO for your blog/website, the main thing is Permalinks. It is a very important factor for SEO. I’m giving you 2 most important Basic SEO tips. You should implement these 2 tips before applying advanced SEO. It is must have for every WordPress website/blog.

Permalinks:

Login to WordPress dashboard of your website. Go to Settings at the left sidebar and select last option Permalinks. Once Permalinks window is open you will see it will set automatically default. Now, see your URL, it’s like;

yourdomain.com/P?45/

or something. It’s actually weird! When you click on home page and you will see the same URL here. Actually, it’s not going to affect you but in SEO perspective it will affect your search engine ranking. So, you should choose the proper link to get better ranking.

If someone searches for your post and enter some keywords in the search engine so search engine gives only those result that includes this keyword in it. So, if you have same keywords but the links are different like;

yourdomain.com/P?45/

or something then your post is not going to index in search results. So, it is the very important thing to set proper URL of your blog/website.

There are so many options, like day & name, month & name, numeric, custom etc. you can select any of these and make your URL but in my opinion, you should select Post Name. If you have an article then URL of this article is;

yourdomain.com/postname

So, when someone searches these keywords then the search engine will index your article in search results. So, you should select Post Name.

So, in this way, you can customize permalinks. This is the 1st step of Basic SEO.

Ping:

Ping is also very useful for SEO perspective. I think you might know about it but I’m damn sure, after reading this you will know more about ping. When you publish a post or edit or modify WordPress sends Ping to all Ping Services. So, in this way, Ping Services get notified about your post and search engine will index your latest post. Ping is very important for better search engine ranking.

WordPress notifies almost major Ping Services but we can add Ping manually to get fast indexing. I have a list of all working WordPress Ping Services. (You can copy from here!)
