In lay man’s term, we knew that SEO or Search Engine Optimization helps us increase traffic in our postings, blogs and the website itself. It is a technique bloggers and other internet savvy individuals alike should learn to make their works easily searched by search engines such as Google.com, Ask.com, Yahoo.com, etc. Here are some of the basic things you need to consider when doing SEO:
- Keywords. One of the basic things to have a successful SEO is the effective use of keywords. These keywords include those words that are currently attracting readers’ interest. One example of this is Facebook. This word has ranked as one of the most searched word in the internet. But of course, it does not mean you have to tag Facebook in all of your posts. If you do so even if your post has nothing to do with it, then you are just fooling yourself.
- Target audience. One of the factors that make Facebook very successful is that it has a wide array of audience. It does not restrict anyone to become its members, expect perhaps those who do not know how to use a computer. Facebook targets the general public. If your website is more directed to certain individuals, then only those individuals will get interest on it.
- Common words. Some particular examples of common words are those listed in the Google Suggest that appear when searching a particular topic in using Google. This helps your audience easily find your link.
Above hints are basic things of using SEO in your blogs. SEO as they say is common sense. However it still requires a little practice to effectively make use of it. I am a beginner of SEO. And whoever wants to become an expert of SEO, he must first learn the basics of SEO. Agree?
