TheLastestSEOTipsSEO (Search Engine Optimization) is all about making your website or your blog more search engine friendly. It is about helping to make the search engines see how great your blog is, so that they rank it higher in the search engine results pages.

On-page SEO is something you have direct control over, as you are able to adapt SEO factors on the pages themselves. Off-page SEO involves factors that you cannot control fully, but that you can influence. Here are a few details about those factors.


1 – Backlinks are good for your SEO

They help the search engines figure out if your website is worth anything or if it is useful. It stands to reason that people are going to link to a website that is of use. So Google uses backlinks a little bit like votes, and the more votes you have then the more value your blog is perceived to have.


2 – The strength of your backlinks matters

A lot of votes is a good thing, but Google is rather discerning. Some of these “votes” are considered stronger than others. One factor involves the strength of a backlink, which is based on things such as relevancy. Another factor is the website that links to yours. If the website is one of high esteem, that is well respected and has a high traffic number, then a backlink from there is going to be worth more than hundreds of backlinks from websites that have just been set up.


3 – Social media integration is important

This involves doing things such as putting Facebook and Twitter widgets into your blog. But, do not stop there, as you should also add “share” widgets, and “like” widgets from the likes of Facebook and Google+. You may also add comment sections to your blog that allows people to link from social media and to comment with their social media profile. This may allow them to copy their comment onto their social media profile.

4 – An RSS feed will help your off-page SEO

This is a function that is going to help turn your causal viewers into dedicated viewers. It makes it so that people are reminded of your existence, and allows them to see when you have posted on your blog. It also allows them to gain direct access to your blog via the RSS feed link. This is all going to go towards making your blog more popular, which is going to encourage people to link to you or to talk about your blog on social media networks.


5 – Anchor text on links is very important

This is because it tells the search engines what you blog or blog post is all about. The search engines may only guess as to the content of your blog and blog posts. Anchor text on links and backlinks will help the search engines guess what your blog is all about. The better they guess, then that more targeted (and useful) your blog traffic will be.


6 – A consistent backlink building campaign is important

Do not run out and get as many backlinks as you can. If you get a lot all of a sudden, then the search engines will look upon your blog with suspicion. Build up a varied and strong backlink profile over time and consistently. Do not go on a backlink building spree, as it will do your SEO no good.


7 – Avoid links from black-hat SEO websites

This is something you should do with great care. If you are building your backlink profile, you need to make sure you get backlinks from websites that are legitimate, honest, and that do not use black-hat SEO, or that are not involved in any sort of black-hat SEO.


8 – Set up a Google+ Page and Facebook Fan Page

This is a no brainer, as it is a great way of promoting your blog for free. It helps to raise awareness about you blog, helps you get backlinks, and helps you get social media mentions.


9 – Avoid any links from black-Hat social media profiles

Social media may be manipulated with black-hat methods, such as by buying links for your profile, or by buying followers. Getting links and mentions from sites that employ these sorts of techniques is going to damage your SEO.


10 – Being written about online is a good thing

Any sort of online chatter that involves your blog name or the blog author name is going to have a positive effect on your SEO. Just how closely the search engines listen for mentions of this nature is unclear, but anything that can improve your blog popularity is going to help. If your blog popularity if being bolstered, then more people are going to visit your blog and comment on it, and link to it.

How toAlthough millions of blogs exist online, only a small handful of them ever attract a wide audience, earn significant amounts of money, make their own success, or sell for a lot of money.

What do you think the difference is between these successful blogs and all the other blogs that flop or dry up?

There are probably several factors including motivation, prior knowledge of search engine optimization, and posting schedule, but one of the most important is that these blogs are engaging and compelling. Here’s how you can transform your blog into a bigger, better blog like them.


Ask what you can improve on

If you have a responsive readership, you’re at a significant advantage at this point. You can ask what your readers want to see you do better or what they want to see more of in the future.

If readers frequently interact with you, however, you’re probably already doing something right so you don’t need to transform your blog completely – just improve and refine it.

This stage will come later if you don’t already have an audience, so keep in mind the value of asking what people want to see.


Look at your last few posts and see if you would bookmark them

Many people bookmark the best posts on their favorite sites. Look at your last few posts and see how many of them are worthy of a bookmark.

If you wouldn’t bookmark your own work and see it as a valuable reference, inspiration piece, or review, why would you expect others to do so?

Going forward, try to make sure each post has something important or wise enough that you would bookmark it if you were a reader.


Mix up the types of posts you make.
When you’re on the go, you might not have the time to write a comprehensive and detailed text post, so why not shoot a video and upload it, take a few pictures, or open your blog up to discussion by others?

Using an ISP like can help you get online even when you’re on the go and not at home.

This goes hand-in-hand with frequent updates – when you have an on-the-go Internet service, your blog will never be idle.


Improve your writing style

Many people don’t discuss the importance of being a good writer and focus on the “equal opportunity” of blogging as a way to overcome poor writing skills. This couldn’t be further from the truth! If you aren’t a good writer, you will suffer.

Do you know how to use commas, which words should be capitalized, or whether a sentence is a complete sentence? If not, review basic books like “The Elements of Style” to get a grip on grammar and style, use a spell checker, and actively improve your writing skills at every opportunity.

Nobody wants to read dry, boring posts, so if your blog is not engaging, you will not attract repeat visitors – who can go on to become fans and “Superfans” (the best group of fans for anyone building a tribe).

These core fans will spread the news about your blog to a wider audience and make you popular, but you have to speak directly to them and cut the dry stuff out of your posts.

Java PrintingOne assumes that a corporate blog has more functions that a blog that is maintained by a hobbyist. The difference between a corporate blog and a commercial blog is that a corporate blog is not really set up in order to sell products.

It may have promotional content posted on it, but its primary aim is to keep interested parties up to date with current information, to keep investors in interest and to help maintain the corporate concern’s public image/online PR.


What can your corporate blog do for you?

It is able to keep investors interested, and there are certain things you can do in order to have investors sign up for your RSS feed. These are the same things that will have people set up Google Alerts in order to see posts such as the ones in your blog.

There are also things you can do to keep interested parties reading your blog. You can use your blog to help you attract new members of staff.

There are posts that you can create that will maintain the interest of your competitors, industry experts, academics and potential business partners. There are also posts you can create that will help to improve your public image and online PR.


Give information that downright blurs the line of insider trading

This will keep investors interested. The things you write on these posts are the things that people set up Google Alerts for, and people who are looking to buy stocks and shares in your company will sign up for your RSS fee.

But, to make sure this happens, you need to publish information that is likely to alter your share price.

You will probably be giving press releases on this sort of thing anyway, so adding posts to your blog should not be a struggle. The best thing however, is that you are able to be a little more creative in just how positive your blog post is.

You are allowed to be a little more biased in your direction than you may be able to be on your yearly reports and press releases.


Blog about how well you are doing when your share price starts to rise

This will have investors and interested parties frothing at the mouth. People often try to understand why a share price starts to climb.

People want to get in on the ground floor (so to speak) before the share price becomes too high.

They also want a little reassurance that the trend will continue to go up.

If you explain that your share price has gone up, and then give a possible reason, it will lull investors and interested parties into a belief that you control your own destiny (share price) and that future trends may be anticipated.


Create a blog post about how happy your staff are every two months

This is good for your public image, but is also good for HR purposes.

A post about staff parties, staff events, or staff initiatives will make potential new staff more interested in applying.

You may even offer a place to submit an application at the bottom of the blog post.

You will need to do this sort of thing every two months so that any temporary staff-moral problems do not appear to be as big as they possibly are.

Plus, six posts per year about how happy your staff are cannot hurt your online and offline reputation either.


Post blogs giving information about new developments in your market/industry

This will interest your competitors, industry experts, academics and potential business partners.

You will receive repeat traffic from the people that matter in your industry.

These are also the people who are likely to inform other people about your blog too.


Post a blog about your charitable work at least twice per year

This is a nice and inoffensive way of improving your public image and online PR.

It is not as exploitative as advertising your charitable work, and only mentioning it twice per year does not make it appear as if you are doing it for the positive attention.

You could also make yourself appear whiter than white by showing people how they are able to help the charity that you have been helping.


BIO: My name is Kate Funk. I am an expert in coaching individuals in business networking skills and math tutoring .

Blog commenting wasn’t exactly invented yesterday, but nevertheless, it is a very simple trick that has stood the test of time and is still widely used today.

However, the recent algorithm updates that the Google team has made, especially the Panda and Penguin ones, have brought some changes as to the techniques comment authors need to employ in order to get their comments to actually count for something.

In order to help you out, here are a few tips you can use in order to make sure that your comments are compatible with Google’s algorithmic updates.

After all, commenting can indeed help you expand your influence, and foregoing it simply because of a few rule changes would mean depriving yourself of extra exposure and traffic, something very few businesses don’t need more of.

1. Build Yourself Up on Social Networks

Quite soon (or perhaps has it happened already?) Google will provide a lot of importance to the kind of activity you are having on social networks, including Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.

Comments that are posted on major social network platforms, especially Google+, actually affect your website’s search engine ranking.

The best course of action you could take under these circumstances is to create fan pages on the social networks you are subscribed with, updating them on a regular basis.

If you are touching on an interesting topic, then more and more people are going to comment, driving traffic to your site and increasing your search engine standings.

In addition, you can also seek out fan pages other people have made and leave your comments there.

2. Finding the Right Blogs

One of the most important aspects of writing a comment is to find the right blog to post it to.

Basically, you need to make sure that your comment appears on a website or a blog that has a good reputation, is popular, relevant, and doesn’t use any black-hat SEO techniques.

If you leave a comment on a blog that is frowned upon by the search engines, then you won’t reap any benefits from it whatsoever; on the contrary, you will have associated yourself with a website that has a bad reputation.

You can easily make a list of relevant blogs by using the Google Double Click Planner.

3. Know the Blogger

Before posting a comment on a blog, take the time to find all the information you can about its author.

In most cases, blogs have a page dedicated to the author’s biography, and you can use that to find most, if not all the information you need about them.

Your goal is to post on blogs that are run by open-minded people who have a positive outlook on working together with others.

If you manage to post really interesting comments, there is a chance that the owner will notice you and seek to develop a relationship.

4. Who is Going to Read you?

While the blog owner will probably have a look at your comment, you need to remember that apart from him/her, everyone else is simply a blog visitor just like yourself; you need to know who will be reading your comments, or at least, the type of people that tend to comment on the blog.

Take the time to read a few other blog posts and comments, tailoring your content in accordance to what you see.

You could perhaps even try to contact a few of the commentators and get a sense for the type of people they are.

5. Reveal Yourself

In most cases, blogs allow you to identify yourself, and perhaps even post a picture or a link back to your site.

It is highly recommended that you actually disclose your identity, not only for the sake of the search engines, but also for the sake of the people reading your comment.

If you give out your real identity, people will feel like you have nothing to hide, therefore buying you trust and some potential new visitors as well.

6. Be Interesting

Finally, it has to be said that your comments actually need to be useful, informative and interesting.

Don’t simply post a comment that says “great job!”, but go beyond that, providing your opinion in regards to some of the points touched in the article, relating some kind of story, or perhaps even complementing what the author wrote.

You need to make the content interesting and engaging so as to show that you’ve read the content and that you aren’t just another comment spammer looking to squeeze in an easy backlink.

Expanding your brand with free blog hosting platsformsThe Emergence Of Blogs

Today is the day and age of blogs. While many people were not used to the idea of blogs a few years back, most people are getting to understand how they are used and can be put to different advantages on the internet.

The best thing about blogs is the ease of creation of them, especially the free ones. If you have an email account at Gmail, you can simply choose the Blogger option and start blogging.

What’s more, you can make use of the blog not only to share thoughts and ideas that you have in your mind, you can even use it as a distinct online marketing tool.


Blogs As Online Marketing Tools

Today everyone is on the lookout for online marketing options.

Most people wish to find ways of promoting their products or services online.

While medium and large sized businesses are making use of the services of many online marketing firms in order to advertise their products and services, those who are about to launch small businesses look for ways to market without going bankrupt.

One easy and free way of advertising online is to make use of blogs. Not only can one start a blog and write about the product or service that one wishes to sell, they can even make use of other blogs in order to spread the word.


Free Blogs Help Each Other

Just as you are opening a new blog with the help of tools like Blogger, many others are doing the same.

While some simply wish to publish the poetry that they have in their mind, others are either trying to promote other brands or trying to sell something of their own.

Free blog owners are more open to publishing content of other blogs or other guests as long as they also get a link in return or get to put in a word or two about the product or service that they are promoting.

Thus, if one is selling a health supplement, they can make use of blogs that are into health and fitness and anything related to such subjects. One can simply drop such blog owners a line requesting them to take up a guest post on their behalf.

Most blog owners have guidelines that need to be followed in composing a guest post. Once that is done, many blog owners will happily publish your content.


Benefits Of High Ranked Blogs

There are blogs which have high page ranks, signifying that they get a lot of online traffic.

When one gets their article published on such sites, they increase the chances of getting more people to read the article and follow the links posted and visit the official site or raise queries.

In such ways, followers are also generated on Facebook or Twitter for products or services. Companies are using social media in such ways to increase awareness and audience for their products.

10stepsIn the digital race to the top of the SEO ladder, what are you doing to make sure your blog doesn’t lag behind and become covered in dust?

Today there are almost 40 million bloggers in the U.S. and unfortunately, creativity and genuine writing skill are no longer enough. In order to market and keep your blog ahead of the game, blogger outreach should be one of your biggest focuses.

Blogger outreach is the process of connecting with other bloggers in an effort to establish a collaborative marketing bond, publish a guest post or to push a piece of content on their site.

Before you can even begin your outreach campaign, you have to do the most time consuming part—research who to pitch to. Here is what needs to be determined before launching the campaign:

  • Does the site even take guest posts?
  • What is their domain authority?
  • Do they have a lot of social media followers?
  • What is their email address?
  • What is the voice of the site?

The research can be made easier with blogger outreach tools like GroupHigh. GroupHigh is a custom search engine that filters out dead blogs and puts blog metrics, social media statistics, contact information and other useful categories in a spreadsheet. It shaves hours off any blogger outreach campaign.

Once you’ve filtered out and made a list of who you want to contact you are ready to go through the 10 steps of an epic blogger outreach campaign.

Step 1: Narrow down your topic and content in to one clear and concise mission statement for your campaign. Write it down somewhere where you will see it often throughout your entire blogger outreach process. It’s good to say centered and on track.

Step 2: Craft the body of your pitch. Keep it short and sweet since successful bloggers get a lot of requests for guest posting and content pushing. State what you are offering and why it’s unique and worthy of space on their blog.

Step 3: Craft a custom “lead” and conclusion for each individual contact. Bloggers know a cookie cutter pitch when they see one. Read a few posts on their blog to get a feel for the tone and what they are looking for.

Step 4: Edit your pitch. Nothing turns a blogger off more than typos and an unorganized pitch— it’s supposed to convey your writing style and skills.

Step 5: Come up with something better to write in the subject line than “guest post.” You need to make your email stand out.

Step 6: Create a spreadsheet of everyone that you pitched to making sure to leave categories open for the ones that accept your post so that you can track how well it does.

Step 7: Engage in the social media of the bloggers with whom you are reaching out to. This will make them realize that you can offer collaborative social media efforts and that you are savvy.

Step 8: After you send your pitch follow up with a tweet that you sent them an email. This lessens the chances of your pitch getting lost in the mix.

Step 9: If it’s been a few days and you haven’t heard anything, give it one last attempt. Send a simple follow up email asking if they have any questions about you or the content you want to write or push. If you still don’t hear back, you have to give up.

Step 10: Be patient and wait. Sometimes it takes bloggers a while to respond. But if you’ve crafted a good pitch and you have a good idea, you are going to hear back from a lot of them. The patience will also come in handy when waiting to see the results of your campaign.

Speaking of results, make sure you keep track of every post. It’s good to know which sites bring you the most traffic. You can mimic the type of post for other sites and offer to write for them again.

This should go without saying, but make sure the content is original. Duplicate content will not only anger the blogger but it can also irk Google and harm your page rank.

AuthorMost webmasters around the world would accept that the whole process of search engine optimization (SEO) is largely skewed towards complying with Google and its web policies.

This is primarily due to the fact that Google has become a supreme power that rules the web, prevailing from search listings to online advertising services, and many more.

Every action that Google executes reverberates across the online world, which is a testament to its dominance in the space. But one cannot undermine the fact that Google’s actions are taken with only two things in consideration, to appease its loyal user base and cement its stature as a quality service provider.


A recent development from Google is its ‘Authorship’ identity, which according to it enhances writer identity and minimizes spam activities.

In the SEO arena, the manner in which Google has created and sustained author tags in HTML and its usage has generated a lot of popularity and interest in the writers circle, mainly because it permits them to tag their work thereby providing insights to the reader about the writer and also reflecting legitimate work.

In today’s age of the paramount importance of the internet branding business, content development is at the forefront of all the activities conducted in a web-oriented business.

When a writer is instrumental in creating blogs or any other form of web content, author tags is an assured route to gaining acknowledgement and credibility in this revolutionary internet marketing trend.

Google is playing a crucial role here as it permits authors to associate their online content to their profile on Google Plus.

Your badge can include your particulars such as your name and preferably also a picture of yourself. Details such as these enable an element of authenticity, connection and readability with the writer and his content.

Also if someone is particularly interested in your kind of writing you could get added to their circle on Google+. This will enable them to simply read more of your work no matter where they have been sighted and also serve as a positive personal branding mechanism.

This complete sequence can osculate into an incontestable medium for SEO.


The purpose of author tags

The entire purpose of author tags is that the work that you have done which is all over the internet now has a profile, thereby enabling global visibility.

So even if you are a writer that does not write very often, you could still include the tag to your name within the content. For the few or many who wonder how to include these tags on your content is in reality a relatively simple process.

Once a writer is done writing on any topic that excites them, they can add then include their unique attributes in a link that will be redirected to their profile. Some of the primitive writing that you may have done also gets the author tag.

Content authentication has been a service that creative writers and authors alike have been longing for. In the age that we are in anyone is capable of falsely claiming that a particular article is their original piece of work and some of the stalwarts in journalism have indulged in such acts, leave alone the ones striving to carve a unique identity by penning their thoughts and views.

Given this crude reality, this new rage called an author tag serves to authenticate your work, build your individual brand, enhance your reputation online and help you penetrate global markets.

This new phenomenon that continues to cause ripples is easy to establish and with Google backing it, you can be rest assured!!
