Getting Your Blog to Rank Highly In Search Engines

Posted on Posted in internet, website

There is little point in writing a blog if no one comes to read it. Blogs are automatically search engine friendly because of their fresh content and clean formatting, but there are a few easy techniques you can use to improve your rankings.

A few words about keywords:

1. Choose your Keywords wisely.

You can choose to write on a topic, or for a key word or phrase, that is immensely popular and has a ton of competition, and never stand a chance of getting in the top page or two of rankings. Or you can choose similar but more targeted keyword or phrase with less competition be in the top 10 listings.

2. Key Word or Phrase? That is the next question.

Most people do not use a single word for a search engine query. The often search a phrase or even type an entire question. This is not necessarily the most efficient way to search, but it is the most natural. So do not think you need to limit yourself to single key word. A key phrase of three – five words is entirely appropriate.

3. Choose your URL wisely.

Once you have chosen your keyword, it is time to choose your URL wisely. Whether your blog is hosted by your blogging software, on your own domain or subdomain. You want your primary keyword to be in your domain name (URL).

4. Keyword Placement

Besides having your primary key word in your URL, you also want it to appear the header tags and titles of your posts.

5. Keyword usage in the body of your post

When writing each post you of course want to use your primary keyword (s) in the text, but do not over do it or you'll sound like spam. Always write in a natural, reader friendly manner. This is also the place put a few secondary keywords as well.

6. Keywords in Links

Keywords that appear in links are more important than those in plain text. So where appropriate, when linking to another blog or website, use your keywords in the text of links.

7. Keyword Categories

Another natural place to put your keywords in your Category names.

Keywords are not the only thing search engines consider when ranking your blog. Here are few other areas to consider:

Links

Links that point to your blog and posts are very important to building pagerank.

Posted on Posted in internet, website

Congratulations! You've made the decision to launch an Internet business: now you need a website design, so where to begin? First time Internet business operators focus should be on a super basic design that will function properly and build on the design as their business grows instead of starting with a complicated design that costs a fortune. If you were introducing a new product line in your store would you start with a 1,000 products or 100 to see if customers will buy them?

It's the same with website design. The most important component in website design for selling is that you must provide a way for people to use their checks and credit cards securely. The amount of products you are selling will determine what type of payment processor system your website needs.

5. a page that describes how the visitor's personal information will be used and the terms and conditions of using your website
