The backbone of your blog’s success – Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

         Have you decided to start a blog ? If yes or if you already own a blog/website, then you must have come across a term SEO many times. This term has a great influence on your blog. You will find much discussions about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) in forums or articles. All this because a simple term – SEO, can decide or tell where your blog is going; towards success or towards failure. So what is this SEO ?? How can it affect a blog ??

What is SEO ??

        Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is basically a practice to improve the visibility of blogs and websites or web-pages in search engines organic search results. In simple words it is a way that search engines see your website. If your blog is nicely SEO optimized then you will get much search engine attention, but if your blog doesn’t follow SEO basics then you will suffer and won’t ever get any ranking. Search engine spiders crawl every website to get information about it and to index it; this is what SEO is all about. If search engine crawlers are easily able to navigate through different pages on your blog then you need not worry.

How can it affect my blog ??

         If you are blogging to get some serious monetary rewards, then you probably need some heavy traffic flow towards your blog. Only search engines have that ability to provide you with that heavy traffic flow you need. Majority of the internet users take the help of search engines to find out stuff they need. So if you are not giving SEO much attention and simply trying to avoid it, just forget about earning from your blog. Search engines will gather the data from your blog if and only if you are allowing them to. So if you are not concentrating on SEO, then though you will blog for years altogether, you won’t be able to make some good bucks.

What should you do to improve your blog’s SEO ??

           To improve the SEO of your blog, you will have to pay attention to some of the points. Remember SEO is not a small-time job, you will have to maintain it throughout your blogging career.

1. Content

This is the most important thing for your blog. Providing quality content on your blog will surely help you get organic traffic. Always remember that “Content is King”. If you are copying articles from other blogs, search engines will come to know about it and you will have to face the consequences then like your blog can even get banned. So always try to provide good, original and quality content on your blog.

2. Your blog’s design

Keep and maintain a simple and easy to navigate blog design. Not just for humans but also for seach engine crawlers. Keep the coding of your blog simple. Allow the crawlers to fetch all the web-pages and articles of your blog. Keeping a simple design will ensure you that the crawlers are gathering the data easily.

3. Meta Information

Meta Information is very useful for search engines to collect certain data of a page. Ensure that you use them properly. Also if you have a site with many pages, you need to add unique Meta Information for each page. If all the pages have the same Meta Information the Search bots will consider it as duplicate information and it will do no good for your site.

4. Titles and Keywords 

Choose a proper title for your blog post. Use keywords of your blog in your title. Make it catchy, something that draws attention. Choose a title in such a way that if someone searches for a particular keyword that is present in your title, then your respective blog post should be on the first page of search results. ut this is possible when you have build some reputation of your blog in the blogosphere.

5. Images

Images are an unavoidable part of blogging. You cannot convey any idea to your reader without a relevant image. “Images speak better than words”. But search engine spiders cannot recognize images in your blog post. So to make images visible, you must provide the “Alt tag” to the image. Alt tag is a description of the image to tell the spiders about the presence of the image and also to notify the readers about the image if it is not loaded properly.

6. Linking

Try to link your different blog post internally. This is considered very good in terms of SEO. Always keep such internal links “dofollow”, so that the search engine bots even take them into consideration. Additionally, avoid providing outbound links, links that are pointing to some other blog. If it necessary to provide any outgoing links then always keep them “nofollow”, so that the bots won’t crawl it.

Summary :-

      Always keep in your mind, all the successful blogs you are looking and following are SEO-optimized to the full extent. That’s why they are successful. If you want to join them, then avoiding SEO will be a big mistake. I hope that you all might have got a good idea about SEO from my post.
