Whether you want to sell stuff, earn money, build an online portfolio or just want to share your personal thoughts, you need readers or visitors on your blog or site to make it a success. A majority of your visitors come from search engines such as Yahoo, Google and Bing. When a person enters a keyword in the search box of a search engine, a list of millions of related sites appears. But most of the times, visitors visit the sites listed on the first 3 pages of the search engine result pages only. Therefore, it is important that your site or blog appears on the first 3 pages too. Here are a few SEO tips that can help you in increasing your blog or site’s rank on search engine result pages.

SEO Tips for Beginners

Write a Catchy Title Post

A catchy title post will attract visitors to visit your site and see what you have to say or offer. Try to make your title attractive and captivating.

Write High Quality Content

Apart from having a good title, it is important to have informative and good quality content too. Even if a visitor visits your site because of the attractive title, he will click away if the content inside is not interesting. In addition to being informative, the content on your site or blog should be good in quality too. It should be free from any spelling, grammar or structure mistakes.

Usage of Keywords

Keywords play a very important role in ranking your website or blog, as it is the keyword that your potential visitors use to search for you. Use almost all possible keywords in your web or blog content, and scatter them all around your site, including headings, sub headings and text. But make sure that you do not over-use them, as this may lead to spam and you may get blocked out from the search engine.

Quality Link Building

Building to many backlinks from low quality irrelevant sites cannot be of any SEO help. You should build backlinks from high quality relevant sites only, even if they are not too many in number. Spend some money and time to search for such sites, and they will surely pay off.

Include Images

Use images in your blog post and name them accordingly. Some people may use search engines to look for an image only, and if you have the related image on your blog or site, it will get listed in the search engine results pages. But make sure that the images that you use are not copyrighted. This is illegal and the image’s owner may call for a legal action against you.

Use a Social Media Sites

Today, social media sites have made sharing of information extremely easy and fast. It is also one of the least expensive ways of optimizing your site and making it more popular among the masses. Share your posts on social networking sites such as Facebook, Google+ and Twitter, and you may have your blog go viral. Just make sure that you do not spam such sites.

You can apply all these tips to your site or blog either yourself or hire a professional to do it for you. Once done, you will yourself see the difference in your search engine ranking.
