Its very hard to implement effective search engine optimization strategy if you dont have a plan. Making monthly plans to optimize your web pages for search engines may really help you boost your traffic and traffic in the online article publishing world is everything! The more traffic you have, the more chances you have to make money online form your articles and journals. Search engine optimization involves learning whether youre new to the term or not because search algorithms and ways to index pages change over time and advance just like everything else in the technology world.
Still, some steps in search engine optimization (SEO) are evergreen: writing good-quality content optimized with relevant keywords and backlinks. If you are new to these terms, check out this SEO explanation in a nutshell.
To help you decide what plans to make and implement during your search engine optimization month, heres a list of things you could do to optimize your web pages for both visitors and search engines.
Tips to make Monthly Search Engine Optimization Plans
- Check your existing articles for keywords check whether people are still searching for this keyword or phrase, whether youve included the terms in all the right places, etc.
- Edit your content check the formatting, headlines and sub-headlines, (how does your content look like and can you make it look more professional).
- Give special attention to first and last paragraph and/or other paragraphs on your web pages (do they include the relevant primary and secondary keyword, do the convey the main idea of the content, etc).
- Check whether youve tagged your articles properly. Adding tags to your articles is an incredibly important step in search engine optimization processes, so you may want to go over the tags youve used and check whether some other tags might drive you more traffic.
- Check the length of your articles. Google finds that 500 word articles may be worth indexing, but unless you are a freaky SEO expert, less than 700-800 words article length may not be enough to enter the ‘web chart’ of search results.
- Start using free SEO tools to analyze the performance of your web pages.
- Work on marketing your articles by signing up on other websites and writing articles with links pointing to your main Seekyt posts (this may take time because you need to get to know the terms of service, content guidelines and the community on new sites).
- Share links to your articles on all the relevant social networking sites and other types of social media types.
- Bookmark your articles on social bookmarking sites with a higher PR, such as StumbleUpon and Delicious.
- Comment on blogs and forums (first check whether you can leave a link to your web page article, journal or profile)
- Try guest blogging to provide anchored links pointing to your articles.
- Try forum posting if you see that the terms of service on the site allow links in comments.
- Try web directory submissions to get backlinks under categories and sub-categories.
- Share articles in Facebook writer groups, such as the Facebook groups of writers suggested by admin and other Seekyt members.
- Edit your bio and create a nice About me page (text on your profile page).
- Adding more articles to your Seekyt article base and doing all the above!
