10 Killer SEO tips for bloggers




Hello Readers, This post will talk about SEO and how to optimize your Blog/Website for better results. We all know SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. But why is this so important to every one? You will find the answer to this very important question reading this post. There are a lot of plugins available in wordpress that helps in SEO; I won’t talk about those in this post. This post will focus more on how to do SEO for Google Blogspot aka Blogger. Blogger is most widely used free blogging platform, many people use blogger including me for various reasons. But in this post we will focus on SEO; I will list a few things that you can do to make your blogspot blog an SEO friendly blog.

Killer SEO tips for Bloggers


Why SEO is important:

SEO is very important for every blog or website. Better SEO will make your Blog/website viral in the search result and you will be gifted free organic traffic by Search Engines. A good SEOed blog will be listed top on the search results by the search engine. Do you remember the last time you went beyond the second or even the first page of the search results? People always prefer top results. So I guess now you know why it is important to do SEO for your Blog.

How to do SEO for Blogspot

1) Provide custom Meta description in every single post you publish. The new Interface by Google Blogger has made this thing very easy to add a custom description. You can simply add it while publishing a new post by adding 2-3 lines in the description box on the right sidebar.
2) Adding keywords to your post’s content is very important. You should try to maintain atleast 2-3% of keyword density in your post. By this I mean if you have a 500 words post you can add 10-15 keywords.
3) Blogspot’s new interface now allows you to choose custom permalinks for your post. Format your post url in such a way that it explains every thing about your post and include the necessary keywords. It should not very long and not even a small one is good. It should be near to 50 characters.
4) There is one more very cool trick you should do and it is to format your post title that will help 
your post getting an identity among the other search results. Go to Edit HTML from your blog template, 
Click on expand the template and search for <title><data:blog.pagetitle/>
</title> now replace this with the code written below:
<b:if cond= 'data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'>
<title><data:blog.title/></title>
<b:else/>
<title><data:blog.pageName/></title>
</b:if>
5) Format your blog images as well. This mean you need to add title and alt tag in every image. This helps a lot in SEO. You can simple add it by clicking on an image in the edit mode and then mention it in properties.
6) Use proper Labels in your posts. Labels should be unique and descriptive. Add at least 3-5 unique labels closely related to your post with every post you publish.
7) Add no-follow attribute to all the external links you mention in your post.
8) Add Meta tags (description and keywords) in your blog template.
9) Link building is very important for SEO. I recommend you to read my complete article entitled with How to get backlinks easily.
10) Last but no the least always write quality and unique content that will easily get up the search results and people may voluntary link back to you. You can also add a link to me widget at the last of every post.

  3. You know this guy knows what he's talking about when his article is on the front page when you search Google for, "seo tips for blog posts." Good article. Do u know how much the URL itself has to do with SEO? Cuz my blog uses the same page to display the various different articles with unremarkable URLs. For example, one article will be blah.com/index.php?ID=3 and another will be blah.com/index.php?ID=5 . Would I be better off, as far as SEO, with something like blah.com/index.php?ID=SEOtips ?

  6. There are also many different ways to achieve the link. With a directory it might simply be a case of adding your company details, which is why they don't often carry any value. With suppliers you might want to write a press release on a recent project endorsing their products. Try also the free trial period of ColibriTool at http://colibritool.com.
