Increasing SEO with a Blog
Kevin Dean – Tuesday, May 25, 2010
Quality SEO is critical for any only business, and one of the quickest and simplest ways of increasing SEO is with a blog. Learning to write posts that make the most of your chosen keywords and using them to attract visitors to your site, via your blog, will dramatically increase your SEO results in short order.
- The proper use of keywords and keyword phrases is what will draw visitors to your blog or website every time, whether you write an article, a blog post, or content for your website, be sure to include keywords that your target audience would use when searching for your site. And spread them out through the entire post without overusing them so they don’t do more harm than good.
- Regardless of the blogging platform you choose, there is more than likely a plug-in or widget specifically designed to improve SEO. Use it! Write a keyword appropriate title and description, and include the keywords you would use if you were searching for the information you’re providing.
- Use the tag feature that blog platforms offer as well. You can typically include as many as keywords as you want, though at the least, include any major keywords or keyword phrases for each post.
Be sure to include your keywords in the title, the first and last sentences, and depending on the length of the post, three to five times throughout. You don’t want to stuff your post with keywords, but use them naturally so they flow with the text and content.
Succeeding in your SEO efforts isn’t difficult, but it does take some time and effort. Increasing SEO with a blog is one of the quickest ways to gain a higher ranking in the search engines. Use this strategy wisely and you’ll see consistent improvement, almost from the day you begin.
