Basic SEO Techniques For Your Blog

SEO Vector illustrationWhether your blog is newly-built or has been around for a while, it needs SEO for optimization.

That is a given.

This is because not only will it help you in making your blog more visible to your target audience, it can also get you a nice spot in search engines result pages.

And don’t let me get started on traffic generation.

So what are the basic SEO techniques you can employ? Let’s get started.

Keywords

Keyword optimization is probably the most common and most popular type of SEO.

Now when you’re looking to optimize your blog content through keywords, it’s important that you’re using tools to help you find what you need.

And what you need are keywords that are relevant and with lower competition. They need to be words that your target audience are likely to search for. But your competitor blogs are less likely to use.

That is important to keep in mind.

Social Sharing

Did you think social media sites can’t be used in SEO? Think again.

Sharing your content on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest among others will help you gain traffic and get higher ranking in search engines.

This is because social media sites themselves enjoy high rankings in search engines. Point in fact: when you Google your name, the top result is more likely your Facebook or Twitter page.

Google Authorship

This is not a very common SEO technique, but just as useful. This will inform Google that the content is yours, even if it’s not on your blog.

That way, you won’t have any problem getting the search engine rank that you deserve.

What’s more, you’ll be able to reshare the content without raising red flag for Google.

Internal and Outbound links

Link juice is important for your blog. That’s why it’s important that you link not only to other blogs but to related posts in your blog as well.

Linking to other posts in your blog will help distribute traffic to your posts that aren’t likely getting enough attention. Now when you link to other blogs, make sure that they are of high authority and boast of large following.

Otherwise, your SEO efforts will be affected. And not in a good way.

Now that you know the basic SEO techniques, it’s time to implement these strategies into your blog.

And get to enjoy an abundant flow of traffic.
