Make sure you’re actually tagging your keywords.

Do you spend a lot of time optimizing your content and then neglect to tag them on your webpage?  Tags are where search engines look and if there are no tags they’ll pass right by your web pages.  Here’s a quick brief on tags.

There are a number of tag types including:

  • Title tags.  Title tags are quite possibly the most important place to situate your keywords.  Here’s what they look like – <title>Primary keyword phrase here. </title>  Your title tag is where you place your primary keyword or keyword phrase.  The sentence will describe your business in less than 90 characters.
  • Header Tags. Header tags are next in order of importance to search engines.  They’re ranked in order of importance and look like this – <h1>Primary and/or Secondary keywords here</h1>
  • Meta Tags. Meta tags provide the small descriptive text found underneath the title tag on the search engine results page.  Like title tags these should be kept brief, informative and up to date.
  • Alt Tags. Alt tags are used to provide a text description of a graphic.  Each graphic on your site should have a description and an alt tag.

Add content to your site daily

Content is essential for traffic and a top search engine ranking.  Content is what search engine spiders look for and index – without it there’s nothing to index or rank.  Give visitors and search engines a reason to visit and index your site. Make a commitment to provide daily, optimized content and your traffic will soar.

Procure valuable and relevant incoming links

The more websites which link to your blog the more valuable search engines perceive you to be, though not all links are created equal.  Search engines give more leverage to links from sites which are popular and credible and from sites which are relevant to your website topic.

There are different types of links:

  • A direct link looks like a basic website address, for example, www.yourwebsite.com
  • A text link occurs when the webpage address is embedded in the text.  Readers simply click on the link and are redirected to a new website page.
  • If the link is to an internal web page, for example an article published on a website, rather than the home page, it is called a “deep link.”

You can encourage linking to your website by:

  • Joining your own blogging clan – members work together to promote each other’s blogs
  • Adding content to your site.
  • Submitting to article directories.
  • Publishing press releases.
  • Blogging and participating in social networking forums, chat rooms and social networking sites.

Be Social!

Now more than ever before, internet marketing is about building a community.  Whether you offer a forum on your website or you participate in social networking sites, social networking is a valuable traffic generating tactic.  Sites like Facebook and Twitter can be powerful tools for generating links and traffic to your site – create a profile and then post comments, links to your site and ideas which generate conversation.

Get involved – many chat rooms and forums are industry specific, find those which cater to your industry, and begin participating.  Speak to and connect with a highly targeted audience.  Create your blogging clan and work to find ways to promote each other’s blogs.

Advertise for more exposure and traffic

Advertising, when handled strategically, can be used to promote your content and products or services.  PPC advertising is often the tool of choice because you control the advertising budget on a daily basis and have the tools to test and track your advertising efforts.  Once you’ve honed your PPC ads the return on investment can be phenomenal in terms of traffic and purchases.

Optimize your blog for Search Engines

For maximum results, create an SEO strategy.  This can be pretty overwhelming because most of what SEO is all about goes way over… well… most people’s heads.  It’s important to learn as much as you can about Search Engine Optimization, however, as search engines are a huge source of traffic.

I highly recommend SEO Scribe as a powerful tool you can use to make each and every post you write optimized for search engines. Rank higher in the search engine listings and your traffic is sure to increase.  The best part is that you can try SEO Scribe absolutely free for 30 days to see if it will work for you!  Apparently, they’re pretty sure that it will!

  2. I think I need to start form the beginning. IDK about optimizing my blog and search engine key words. My head is just spinning after watching that scribe video & I certainly don’t want to pay out anything since this isn’t a money making venture. I did, however, get a rude comment form a freelance journalist today, guess that counts for something, huh?

  3. Thanks for these helpful tips! Got any ideas for converting email subscribers into actual visitors? They are so content to just read the content in the daily email, but never visit.
