Many people talk about it, you heard about it. But do you know how search engine optimization is done correctly?
Is it impossible or tedious to even try it as a way of bringing free traffic to your website?
Let me be clear here:
90% of my total traffic is sent to my websites from Google! Thanks to the effective use of SEO (search engine optimization).
It is not as difficult as it may sound, but you need to know what you are doing. Writing articles randomly might bring you success, but you can influence it a lot by using the small tricks I am going to show you below!
To become successful in the online business, you need to start making plans. By making plans you take it more serious and that is what you need to lift yourself higher.
I always have at least 5-10 ideas in store I want to write about. Before I sit down to write the actual article, I draft it in my mind. That doesn’t need to be exactly the article as it will look like in the end, but it makes writing so much easier and faster.
This “mind drafting” can be done anywhere. While doing sports, eating, working, showering. The place and time don’t matter.
Just get yourself in the mood and the words will come by themselves, once you start writing.
This technique is not SEO yet, but it will help you following along with the next steps:
Now it is getting interesting! This is the most important aspect of SEO, so please read carefully!
Keywords are words or phrases people type into a search engine like Google if they are looking for answers or products.
When you can find out what people are looking for, you can leverage this knowledge to bring people to your website.
But how can you find those keywords?
There are several free and paid tools, you can use to find the gold nuggets.
The best free tool I have found so far is from toolfeast.com. You can use it for finding keywords for the US, UK, Germany, France, India, Canada, Brazil, and Japan. I know of no other free tool, that offers that many different countries!
Once you have an idea what you want to write about, go to their “Autosuggest” tool. Then type in 2 or 3 words that describe the topic of your article. The main idea of your article.
For example, “how to make money”:
Autosuggest will then tell you how many people are looking for that phrase you just typed in. But that’s not all. It even gives you hundreds of suggestions of other keywords you can use.
Those keywords are, of course, related to the phrase you typed in yourself.
As you can see in the image, there are loads of keyword suggestions you can choose from.
It also analyzes those keywords and tells you how many competitors are using the same keyword.
You should always choose a keyword that many people are looking for but doesn’t have too many competitors.
By doing this, your chances of getting a good ranking in Google for that keyword is much higher.
So, after you have made up your mind what to write about, go and research your main keyword for the article.
Once you are done with that, you can continue to the next step:
Most important about SEO is that you don’t spam your keyword. Your article needs to be as naturally written as possible.
If your keyword is stuffed in the article 10 or more times, Google and other search engines most likely will punish you for that and your ranking for that keyword will be really bad.
This is where you have to put your keyword:
Make sure you are doing all this and then just write your article naturally! Of course, your keyword might still appear more often then. That is absolutely ok, as long as it happens NATURALLY!
It just makes sense that it appears now and then. It is the topic of your article, right?
Many people forget to put their keyword in the alt text of an image! Please put it there, too!
Google can’t look at the images, but it sure reads the name and alt tag of the image.
I have so many images ranking high in Google, that then link to my articles!
Many beginners think that they should write short articles that are easy to read and understand.
Unfortunately, that is wrong!
Only when you write at least 1000 words for each article, you will have the chance to get good rankings on Google.
Yes, there are always exceptions, but the more you write the better it is!
Long and informative articles are good for two things!
I think you understand how important the second point is!
Most likely you want to earn money with your website! If people don’t find answers on your website, they will go somewhere else. That is a customer you just lost!
Get as much information on your site and visitors will not only come, but they will stay!
They will start trusting you! They will start buying from you!
While I have given you all the important aspects to be successful with SEO, it can easily be a bit overwhelming.
I know what it feels like! I have been there, too.
Don’t worry, though. The longer you are in this business, the easier it gets.
You will still have to work and write a lot. But once you know how it works, and you are getting a routine, it will be just like a stroll in the park.
