Now, onto the helpful information!

 

 

1.  UNIQUE, INTERESTING, and ENGAGING CONTENT

Just like how this was #1 in our 5 Tips To Start a Blog it is number one here.  As in the other article the idea of content is different for this.  Having updated and regular content is great but what you need is to have the U.I.E. of content.  Writing numerous articles and publishing them does help a tiny bit in the world of SEO.  It gets your big toe in through the door of SEO.  Your audience gets built a bit but if the content is not U.I.E. then you are just urinating in the wind.  Make the visitors want to come back more with thought provoking information.  Information they can comment on and share in their own social media world.  So, write U.I.E content on a consistent basis when publishing new articles on your blog/website.

2.  KEYWORD(S)seo tips 2

Within the U.I.E. content you have just written there needs to be a focus of a keyword or keywords.  What exactly do we mean by that?  Well, within each article you write there needs to be a keyword(s) to focus on to help the search engines locate your amazing article.  For each new article you write there should be a new keyword(s) for that specific topic.  For example, you are writing about how the new Google Glasses will change the way we see things.  Within that specific article you need to find or create keyword(s) that will flow naturally in the content, and be specific to the topic.  Using Google Glasses can be the keywords for the article.  A final note is to make sure the keywords you are using are also in the article heading, the website URL, images in the article, meta tags.

3.  IMAGES and VIDEOS

seo tips 1Words are boring!  Yes, it gets monotonous just reading words upon words.  If the people coming to your site wanted to really do that then they would read a full book.  Do not get me wrong.  Having a meaty article is not a bad thing at all.  Just break it up with images and videos to help with reading.  Don’t just throw random images and video into your article.  Make sure they are relevant to the topic at hand and not an absorbent amount on the page as well.  The videos and images add a substantial boost to your SEO content among the search engines.

4.  LINKS, LINKS, and MORE LINKS

Have links within your article that go back to your other articles within your website.  You want to create a loop within the articles that keeps your audience spending more time at the site.  There needs to be a sufficient amount of links within the article being written.  The longer the article is the more links that can be added to the content.  You don’t want to have a page full of blue links.  It hurts the eyes and makes you look like a fool.  The links also need to flow naturally in the content you are writing.  Within those links you are putting in make sure to have at least one out bound link to a website or article that relates to the topic being published.

5.  FACEBOOK, TWITTER, LINKEDIN, and GOOGLE+

The content has been established.  You have followed the helpful tips.  Now, we sit and wait for people to come to us right? NO!  This is not a build it they will come kind of thing.  It takes work to promote yourself.  Granted these SEO tips help put your content out there but this tip is about social media.  Get your website out there on the big social media platforms.  Create a Facebook page, a Twitter account, LinkedIn network, and Google+ account to push out your content across those.  There you can begin to build your audience.  It will start off with friends and family but using the SEO tips it will help garner new members to your audience.  Once you create some new content publish them across those platforms.  Cater them to those specific social media platforms.  It is also another way to engage with your audience by letting them contribute comments, reviews, forward to friends, and even ask you questions.  It will help encourage reoccurring visits and new visitors.

    Great list, Jason! Even the way you ordered these 5 points is crucial. They build off of one another well don’t they?

    I’d also add to number 5 the value of using social networks to share lots of links and content for others. Those platforms are a great way to build up a community of people you love to support and help expand their reach. Cool things happen when you help others!

      I want to express my aiptecparion to this writer for bailing me out of such a issue. Just after browsing through the the web and obtaining things which were not helpful, I figured my entire life was done. Being alive without the presence of strategies to the difficulties you have resolved through your good article content is a crucial case, as well as the kind which could have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I hadn’t come across your website. Your own understanding and kindness in dealing with almost everything was excellent. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come across such a point like this. I’m able to at this point relish my future. Thanks a lot very much for your specialized and effective guide. I won’t be reluctant to refer the sites to any individual who desires guidance about this subject.
