The Best SEO Tips For Bloggers

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is hugely important for anyone operating a website. If you don’t continually optimise for search, no-one will know your website exists. Of course, your best option would be to consult an SEO agency for support but for bloggers and other website owners who don’t have a big budget, this isn’t always possible. Instead, you need to have at least a basic understanding of SEO to keep you in the game. Read on for some tips to get you on the right track.

 

Always do your keyword research before starting an article starting a blog post so that your writing is relevant to your niche. There are lots of tools you can use online to help with this. You’re probably incorporating keywords in your text naturally anyway, but adding the most popular keywords into headings, subheadings and anchor text will also be highly beneficial. Always aim for minimum of 300 words whenever you write something, as Google favours longer articles.

Building up both internal and external links is also a useful tactic because it helps Google understand what your website is about and how it is structured. Every backlink you receive acts as a vote of confidence for Google as it implies people are actually interested in your website. This will help with your rankings on the Search Engine Results Page (SERP), which will encourage more visitors. One method for getting backlinks is to write guest posts for other bloggers.

 

Ensuring your blog is Google friendly isn’t a quick or easy task, it’s an ongoing process, but working hard on it will improve your domain authority, which will eventually help you monetise your blog. Try and refrain from posting below average articles just for the sake of it, as this will go against you more than anything.

  1. A few months ago, a lot of English teachers in my school have discovered my personal website and my website’s visitors amount were increased until now, so I don’t need to display my website in search engines and SEO services to prevent spam. I already have some other ways to promote my website and my YouTube channel such as creating business cards. However, your suggestions are very good. Thanks for sharing!

  2. There’s a couple things here I’d be wary of stating as fact (as a picky marketing agency person) but I always encourage bloggers to write content like this because I think it can help others bloggers understand 😊

  3. “Always aim for minimum of 300 words whenever you write something, as Google favours longer articles.”

    I have read many blogs that say you should write 200-250 words because people get tired and don’t read longer. It turns out, no google for them, interesting.

    1. People get tired regardless of how long the post is. I really think it depends on the content and what your readers want to read. But Google definitely prefers longer articles! Thanks for reading x

  4. The last phrase is such a good reminder!!!! I’ve been in a writing slump and been feeling pressured to stay with a posting schedule. I agree that if the post is below average.. best to save my resources and put it somewhere better!
