There are mainly 3 SEO strategies to follow, to grab traffic for your blog from search engine. Here are those 3 strategies of SEO, which you’re waiting for!
1) Adding perfect Keyword for better SEO
First step in search engine optimization, i.e… SEO is applying the correct keyword in your article. If you written an article “How to make your PC work fast” with 400+ words. First you must choose a keyword for that article, example: PC. Once you’ve decided the keyword, now it’s time to increase the density of that keyword in the article. Example I will say how,
The following is a sentence present in the article,
“I’ll share some tips to work it faster”
The “it” I’ve mentioned in the PC, so the word “it” gives the meaning “PC”. So change the word “it” to “PC”. Like this, there are several ways to increase the keyword density. The best keyword density for SEO is 2-5%. You can check it your article’s keyword density using some online tools such as, keyword density analyzer.
I recommend you to have your more keyword density in your article because, it helps the search engine to identify the keyword of your article, and it displays the search results according to it.
If you don’t have the keyword density wrongly or if you have a different keyword for your article, it displays your blog in completely wrong keyword. So keep the keyword that is relevant to your article, and have keyword density of 2-5%, which is good for SEO.
2) SEO optimizing your post title by analyzing keywords
Analyzing keywords for your post title is an easy way to rank in the first page in search engine. But Analyzing keywords is not an easy thing, you’ve to work more on choosing a search engine friendly title for your article.
Let me explain a little about keyword analyzing. The tool which I use and I recommend you to use is “Google AdWords Keyword tool” which is completely a free online tool for keyword research by Google.
First, after completing your article, find note some keywords of your article. [Try to find at-least 3-5 keywords]. After that go to Google AdWords tool, and place those keywords each per line. And select the country that you want to know the keyword popularity
And then hit the “search button”, you’ll be finding keywords that are related to your post. Choose one of them, and attach it to the starting of your article, to make it SEO friendly.
The second step is over! Now let we dive into step 3!
3) SEO optimizing Alt and Title Tags in images
Alt tag and Title tags are the best ways to optimize your blog’s images for search engine. Alt tags and Title tags are used in images, to identify the name of your image [I mean, the name of your article] in Image search results.
Alt tag and image tag can be added to images in HTML by,
Title tag: When your reader hovers an image in your article, it shows the text which you’ve added to the title tag.
Alt tag: Alt tag helps the search engine to identify the description of your image. When your image link has been broken, the alt text appears on the image.
