Internet marketing is dynamic and because of its unique way of tracking the traffic, it’s growing at a thunder bolt speed.

Search engine optimization is not very difficult as many say but it seems difficult because of its complexities that you need to tweak and adjust to work better. These complexities can be mastered and attained easily with certain SEO disciplines and that’s what you will be learning in this blog post.  This blog post may help you in the basics of SEO. But definitely, it will help you rank better than before.

Let’s jump into the three topics that you might want to learn before you actually start your SEO journey.

The necessary elements to get the high keyword rankings:

When location becomes the magic spell to the real estate industry, then the magic spell for the high ranking keyword is SEO.

The search engines use special algorithms to understand what keyword that each blog has used and based on the context of the content, the search engines brings the webpages based on the search queries.  So this means, based on the relevancy of your keyword employed and the context of the content and matched to the users search query gives the high ranking for you blogs or blog post in the SERP.  By adding relevant keywords and keeping the content precise, simple and relevant to the users search query helps the search engines to do their job a lot easier and faster.

Suppose, if you are selling a book on “Blogging,” your content should relevant to “Blogging” and it should have keywords may be like “Professional blogging for beginners, blogging for newbies, or ProBlogger Blogging methods and techniques etc.,” and more importantly you must know what are the specific areas that your keyword should be placed in your content.

The benefits of SEO – Compliant Blog:

Designing you blog SEO Friendly, it helps you to tailor you blog to follow the rules and regulation of search engines and communicate well with them and make them understand what the blog is all about. Basically, your blog should able to allow the search engines spiders to absorb and digest easily the juicy content in your blog without these spiders encountering any red flags while these spiders crawls your blog’s content.

The search engine spiders and your blogs content communicate with each other through metadata. Metadata is nothing but, it is a combination of the page title, the description tag and keywords tag. This metadata should contain relevant keywords on the subject that you’re intended to explain to your readers through that blog post. But remember, the metadata should not be stuffed with keywords. Keyword stuffing is when people use too much of keyword or over use the keyword on their content that is not at all related. Listen to what Matt Cutts and his friend Nelson intended to tell on KEYWORD STUFFING and what you can do to fix it.

 

Make sure that your content contains images related to your subject of the content. And also make sure you optimize you image by adding ALT ATTRIBUTE (It is a description of image with the relevant keywords in it). The description should connect to the subject of the content.  Make sure the text or the content must be arranged in an orderly manner so that the search engines will be able to understand what the blog post is about. And you must optimize each and every elements that you include in your content, that is, the list below must be optimized in a blog post to rank well in the search engines, they are;

  • Title Tag
  • Meta description Tag
  • Heading Tags
  • Textual Content
  • Alt Attributes in all images
  • Related and relevant internal links in the content
  • Sitemaps( Include both XML and HTML on you blog)
  • Text navigation
  • Canonical Elements
  • Structured Data Markup
  • URL Structure, that is, file name, etc.,
  • Robots.txt file
  • Relevant and related outbound links
  • Privacy Statements
  • Contact Information.

Be clear on your matter of the subject:

Having a clear focus on the subject matter of the blog and content is another way of getting high keyword ranking.

Suppose consider that you have an ecommerce website which focuses on Mobile phones, your blog must have topics which is completely focused on the subject matter of Mobile phones only because this makes the users to navigate your blog easily and it helps them to make research or purchase the desired mobile phone.  And this helps you to increase the credibility and the chances to rank higher in the search engines for the users search query.

I remember I told to get high rank in search engines, you must carefully place your keyword in your content but continuing to place the more similar focus keywords in all of your blog post, and it has better chances for ranking in search engines.

If you want me to say it in layman’s language, it’s like going to a “Buffet” but you stick to a “Salad.” And “You like a search engine, immediately go to Salad section because it is nicely and legibly labeled. And from there you breakdown into different types of salads like, romaine lettuce, parmesan cheese, croutons etc., so what I mean to say here is , if you keep your blog everything grouped accordingly, it’s easy to rank high in the search engines.

In SEO consistency is the key:

Consistency is a SEO discipline. It is advisable to follow and updating your blog regularly and doing the same way every time you update your blog articles or blog. The reason is simple, your site should look consistent to your reader, that is, they want to update their knowledge and if they don’t find anything new on your blog, your blog will have no value. In other hand, for search engines, there should be a massive reorganization every time you make an update, that is, in order to maintain high rank, you need to keep all your related content wherever they were before.

Let’s get back to out “Buffet Story.” The buffet designer cannot keep the food according to his whims and wishes and if does the people who to eat might feel confused and they will not have any satisfaction of eating. Same way in SEO too, you need to arrange your blog in such way that it pleases both the search engines as well as the users.

Use a download link and add a LOOKING AT SEARCH RESULTS: APPLES AND ORANGES content.

Lastly follow the SEO code of ethics:

Christians, Muslims, Hindus, and other many religions follow the rules of the holy books and likewise the SEO code of ethics should be followed to have healthy SEO practices. SEO ethics is never ending, confusing but whatever SEO you are doing, it should be within the guidelines of Google and other search engines.

Most of the SEO practitioners follow the guidelines prescribed by these search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing but not all SEO practitioners follow these rules or guidelines and end up abandoned by the search engines.

Although the industry have not adopted an official code of ethics, that is, some SEO practitioner follow certain code of ethics and others follow different set of codes of ethics. Here is a set of commonly accepted SEO code of ethics across the world:

The magic spell for the high ranking keyword is SEO.
