Tips For Successful Search Engine Optimization

Successful Search Engine OptimizationA successful blog is one that can achieve high traffic and search engine ranking. It does not just take an excellently written article to help your blog achieve all that!

That article has to be related to something that people are always searching for on the Internet.In that way, chances of visitors coming in to receive information from your blog are high, thus contributing to the increase in your search engine and traffic rankings.

This is where Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, needs to be done. And there are useful optimization ways for your blog to be the most wanted source of information and reach the top of the search engine list.

Let us explore some of the ways to ensure successful SEO:

1. Your post titles should include highly rated search engine keywords inside them. In doing so, people who type in those keywords can most probably be directed to your site and read your articles, which can increase your traffic and place your site at a higher position in the search engine directory.

2. The same keywords can be used for the other pages in your site. This means that the keywords will be able to direct users to more than one of your site pages, thus increasing users’ awareness towards your site.

3. Ensure that those keywords are included in the text itself. It would be inappropriate to just display the keywords on the title but do not use them in your detailed article. You should make use of the words at least once or twice in the body of the article. You can bold the words or use a different color to show the words. This will indicate to the readers and robots that they have entered the right site to receive the information they are looking for.

4. Avoid using the same title for every page in your site. Robots would perceive all your web pages to be exactly the same as your homepage and they will only book mark the homepage and forget about the others.

5. Do not link to sites that do not support search engines. If you find that your keywords cannot be linked to the content of that particular site, you need not link to those sites.

6. Avoid using doorway pages that will only attract robots instead of humans. Traffic and search engine ranking will get better for your site if an influx of humans read through your contents rather than an influx of robots. Make sure that your contents are pertinent to the search.

7. Use text links rather than images on your navigation bars and tabs. If you were to try placing the mouse on the text link, the link titles that contain the keywords will display. That will make search engines index your site and contents more, thus increasing your search engine ranking.

8. Submit your site link to the search engine, but you need not do so very often and need not submit more than one page of your site. As long as your site allows for good navigation, all your pages will be book marked. NEVER use submission software or service as you can get be dealt with severely for doing so.

To add on, SEO also has a theory behind it, and that theory is that it is more essential to provide links to posts than links to homepages.

A very good advice for all of us here!



And because of this theory that stirs up our curiosity, we are up for another tag! Our good friend, Marzie and Rolando has tagged us on an interesting SEO meme, which has got to do with the SEO theory. We would like to discover for ourselves how much power this theory can bring to our blog, so we are all set!

Start tag
This is based on the SEO theory that links to posts inside your blog are more important than links to your home page. I have selected three posts I want to promote along with my site’s name.

You will do the same thing.Keep it simple and spread our good work around to both share and build some ratings! Pick three posts that you feel are your best or those you simply want to promote. Your site name is listed with your 3 selected posts beneath.

Once you have your post up: Add the sites and post links of the folks you tagged onto your post. Try to add the site and post links to anyone involved to maximize the effectiveness.Tag a minimum of 5 people!

Try your best not to double tag people so it will spread better! Please actually read the posts from everyone so you can see some really good work from our beloved blogging friends! Make your title a little different from mine to avoid repetitive titles. Please try maintaining some friendly updates to your post too.

Rolando said...

Wow, great intro to your tag response from Bobby. Awesome and great tips!

Thanks NAFA!

Bobby said...

Hi Nafa! Great post! I can only add the links for 3 post not 10. It wouldn't be fair for everyone else who has only 3! Which 3 do you want to use?

Mariuca said...

Hi Nafa!! You always come up with a cool way to do ur meme! GP LIKES! ;)

I enjoyed reading this article, very useful tips u gave and it was extremely well-written, one of my fave posts from NAFA! Two thumbs up! :):):)

THE NAFASG TEAM said...

@Rolando - Hey rolando, so happy that you like this article that we combined together with the tag and thank you for tagging us on this. =)

@Bobby - Hello bobby, we overlooked the rules of the tag. Sorry about it. We will make our 3 choices and inform you at your post of our 3 choices. Thank you =)

THE NAFASG TEAM said...

Hello Marzie, we just like to experiment different things in our articles such as combining and a tag together.

Glad to know that this one of your favourite post from us. Thanks for this interesting tag. =)

THE NAFASG TEAM said...

@Sandee (Comedy +) - Thanks for adding us in your list. Have a great day ahead too. =)

@Amel's Realm - No problem. Thank you for adding us in your SEO list. You have a great day too.. =)

Bobby said...

Thanks Nafa! I have added your links onto mine! Originally I wanted to do 5 posts from every one but I think it would be too much. I will say that my Technorati authority has increased by 30 points in just a few short days.

I know Google is the most powerful search engine but on Alexa they are #3. Yahoo is #1. What I've been doing lately is typing in Nafa in the google search bar to get here rather than my blogroll.

I wonder if that makes a difference? I think it does. When I went to Marzie's site I typed in Mariuca to get there. Try it out, just type in Revellian!

Bookmark links and blogrolls are referral links. Search engine searches aren't. What do you think?

THE NAFASG TEAM said...

Hi Bobby,

We have heard of such things before but have yet to implement it cause there is no concrete evidence that it works.

To us, keywords are the most vital components to optimize SEO. We have done research on this and it is proven. Take for an example, we wrote on an article about making money online.

We use the title and the beginning of the article as the catch to the main frame of the article so when somebody search with that keyword at any search engine, our article will be listed.

It depends on the popularity of the topic, that's why we have to write more unique contents to improve our SEO.

Nevertheless, we will try out your suggestion, thank you, bobby for your wonderful insights =)

J@n!ce said...

Hi Nafa, I've done this too, please add me in. I have added you too :)

Page Optimization
http://seo360.de

Put your chosen words for each page in your page title tags.
Make sure your page title tag text is unique to each page.
Write a description for the meta description tag.
Make sure your description is unique to each page.
Use only one H1 header per page, and target similar keyword phrases as the ones
you targeted when writing the page title.
Use subheaders H2 and H3 on your page when necessary.
Use bulleted lists and bolding to make content easier to read.
Make sure your text is written for human consumption—not bots.

THE NAFASG TEAM said...

Hey, great post. What does point 7 mean tho? ;p

THE NAFASG TEAM said...

Hi Sani...

Glad u like our article, and thanks for accepting our tag and for informing us of your three selected posts and URL.

Actually u would need to copy and paste the article on your site, as well as display your three selected posts on the article. Do copy from the 'Start Tag' to the 'End Tag'. Within the pasted article, just add on your site name and posts in the SEO list. Then at the end of the entire article, select some people whom u wish to tag.

Feel free to ask us if u have any questions abt this ok? =)

THE NAFASG TEAM said...

Hi Mr Fong,

Glad u like the article.

Point 7 actually means that if u want your site to be reached by search engines, it is more advisable to put up text links (in words) rather than to use images or pictures. Your text links would most probably contain the keywords that can let your site be found more easily through search engines. Images on the other hand do not contain any keyword.

Hope that would clear your doubts. =)
