Optimize your blog for best search engine results

Mar 14, 2008 6 comments
If you ask me, more of my visitors come from search engines. This obviously shows that I've optimized my blog to some extent which resulted it as a search engine friendly blog.

Now, looking at above chart(src: google analytics which is monitoring my blog), it shows that more than 48% visitors come directly to my blog pages through search engines. Rest from other sources.

You probably want to know how you can best optimize your blog for great search engine results. After all, most people stumble upon blogs when doing a search for something. If you use these optimization tips effectively, it may be your blog more people are drawn to. So, check these tips out and experiment with your own blog. Note what has the best results and stay with it. Change the other things around a bit until you get the results out of them that you want.

Simple Content

Many experts say that the best way to optimize your blog is to keep everything very simple. You can choose one quality content topic and make it your base. Then from there you can use variations of the topic in order to keep everything going. This may seem like a broad and useless tip, but once you get into blogging more and more, you understand how important it is.

Put More Out There

If you are trying to get more of a presence on search engines, be sure that you have something to show. The more content you have, the more likely you are to show up on a search engine. Bigger sites always do better than smaller sites. It is simply a numbers game. Search engines will see your site in a different manner, depending on how much content you have. The more content you have, the more there is a chance there will be that someone will stumble onto your site. You've to write on every topics you could imagine considering the fact that you don't slip away from main theme. As talking about myself, I mostly talk on tech stuff, irrespective of that I blog on everything I like to write about, after all it's my blog, place to put my words and thoughts.

Ask Search Engines for Help

Few people know that you can actually submit your site to search engines. Submit your site’s URL and ask to be put into the index. This can take a while, but if they do list you in the index, you will see a larger increase in traffic. Beware however of a service that asks for money in exchange for getting your sites into search engines. Once I ended up paying few bucks and I never heard from them later. These can be a little misleading at times. There are ways to do this without needing to pay anyone at all. (Please check the end of this post for all valuable links to optimize your blog)

Keywords that are most sought after

A great idea for optimization is to identify the most popular keywords. By doing this, you are essentially targeting the keywords that people most often search for. When you do this, you have an edge over the competition. When you know exactly what the people are looking for, you can give them just that. Once you have a list of keywords, simply create articles that use these keywords. By creating these articles, you are putting yourself out there to be found. When someone does a search for those keywords, your blog just might pop up on their screen. Be careful not to use the keyword so much that your article does not make sense however.

Don't stand still, Daily update is must

If you really want the best optimization, you should update it daily at the least. The more you update it, the more often search engines will index your blog. Therefore, you will want to be sure your blog is always fresh. Adding new information is the best way to update your blog. The more new information you have, the better off you will be! Just be sure that when you do update, it is for a good reason. You should always remember that content can have a purpose, but it should always be quality content. If you compromise content, you are only allowing yourself to strip the creativity from your project. If you are happy with doing that, by all means go ahead. However, as a writer, you will have a certain responsibility to web surfers. Unless you want everything on the web to be useless, do your part!

Use these tips to help optimize your blog and get the most from search engines. The more you post and use these tips, the more results you will see. If you earn your living from the number of clicks your blog or your ads get, this will essentially mean more money for you. You can use all of them or some of them. Experiment with them to see what works best for you and your blog. Put these tips to use and watch your results rise today!

And, followings are the links where you can actually submit your sites for free. Remember it's not easy task, will certainly take your quality times but it pays you back, you know, after a month or so. You'll experience that eventually. These sites asks for reciprocal links in return, don't scare to input their links on yours. Be smart and create links smartly. If some links below turns to paid one, disregard them.

On top of that, I've a link with keywords already included to search popular search engine submission sites for ranking and traffic. Just follow the links below and take your initiatives:

Hi Ametya Ji, those keywords do not link on first ... Hi Ametya Ji, those keywords do not link on first 100 search results. I tried that.

And, using 'Ametya' and 'Amit Pokharel' as keywords, directly took me to your blogs at first which is good. Congrats.

Best of luck Ametya Ji.

One of the best i liked in wordpress is to see from where visitor are coming. I saw sex related terms in the section of that..I am pleasing that you did try.
Navin Ji, Do you have your own database or kinda like that ? too long website address has been addressed in quick manner.

and thank you for apppeciating my words and for changing the format of mero guff. Now we don't have to click in a random way.

Ametya Ji, very true. to tell you the fact about me, I've strange desire, I just can't go single way, in fact I put my leg on both boats which is risky but not when we're involved in online activity.

I'm actively participating in both wordpress and blogger. I don't own blogger server, this but I've full control over wordpress at other end, . There I own my own database and I host more than three PR 4 sites on my paid server. Which I think is not a good idea to reveal for now.

Thanks for your comment Ametya ji, I felt relaxed that no one is having hard time to figure out things on this blog..
