2. Search Engine Optimization or SEO
SEO or Search Engine Optimization is the process of getting traffic from the “organic,” “free,” “natural ” or “editorial” listings on search engines. It is the simple activity of ensuring a website can be found in search engines for words and phrases relevant to what the site is offering. In many respects it’s simply quality control for websites.
Simply said, SEO involves writing pages that use keywords, words that people use in searches, and securing links from other pages to show how important your page is compared to others.
Keyword or Key Phrase in SEO
A keyword or keyword phrase is what a web user types into the search engines in order to find relevant web pages and the use of Keywords in text is an essential component of good SEO.
Never ever do this…
“Guessing” at keywords and bolding words you think might be important for SEO is really not the way to go about optimizing your content nor will it help your SEO.
The only way you can truly know what keywords are actually good keywords is with the help of a keyword search tool. Some people prefer to use what we call “Long tail keywords”. Long tail keywords are keyword phrases with three to five words in them and they narrow the search down even further. Long tail keywords are usually more specific and will draw lower traffic than shorter, more competitive keyword phrases.
3. Submit URL to Big Search Engines Such as Google and Bing
Now this is something you do if you want to. It won’t hurt if you don’t. But when it comes to getting massive traffic to your site, this becomes necessary. Here we only discus two major players.
Google and Bing.
The reason being that these top two search engines take up to 95% of the online market. The remaining 5% are going to have a long battle ahead if they’d like to conquer the giants. There are many out there you can source from internet.
Submit URL to Google Search Engine
Google remains the number one search engine in the internet world. To submit your articles URLs to Google, just go over to Google and type “URL submit”. A page like below would be pulled up. There you go to search console and you follow the instructions.
Submit URL to Bing
Bing remains the 2nd mostly used search engine in the internet world. It works just like Google and is it’s also very easy to submit URL. Submit your URL to Bing by doing a Bing search on “Bing URL Submit“. A page like below would be pulled up. This will notify Bing that your website exists.
4. Promote Your Articles On Social Networking Sites
T get more traffic to boast your search engine raking, you have to promote your articles in social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Digg and many others you can find online. In many ways, great content is even more important when dealing with social networks than making it easier for users to find what they are looking for. The reason for this is that social networks not only can provide a positive influence on your site, but a negative effect as well. If someone doesn’t like your site and complains about it on a social network site, they can ruin the chances that others will even look at your site. Likewise, if someone praises your site on a social networking site, it can greatly increase the chances of others visiting your site.
How to Promote Articles on
You can post an update with a link to an article you wrote, but make sure you make it helpful. The golden rule with social media is no sales pitches, no hype, no blatant self-promotion. Bring other people value, help them solve their problems and build trust first. When posting a link to your article, you can either put the title “How To…” or anything that will catch their attention.
If you have many followers on Twitter, tweet your new articles, especially stories and How-Tos. Make sure you also tweet other people’s stuff, as it will also help people and you will appear to them like an expert and not as someone who wants to promote himself.
