Posted on

If you’re reading this, it is because you are seeking answers to this question…  What is SEO Optimization About?  Well, you have come to the right place for answers.

SEO Stands for Search Engine Optimization.


SEO is the process of increasing the visibility of one’s website in search engine results (SERPS) by driving quality traffic to it through various methods.  In this article, we will discuss those methods further.  I will give you some tips and tricks that I use!  You’re welcome!

SEO is not just about making your website better for the search engine.  It is also about making it a better and a more quality user experience for people that visit your site.  If people love what you have to say, you can rest-assured that they will visit your site again.

Although Social Media does play a role in website traffic, the main search engine’s will be your primary source of traffic.  Google, Bing and Yahoo are the most widely-used search engines.  We will be talking about those search engines today.

 

Get Your Website ON


Before you can do any type of SEO to your site, you will first need a website, right!   If you do not already have a website, the place that I recommend to get a free website is Wealthy Affiliate.  If you need guidance in getting your free website, you can start by reading this Blog where I teach you how to do just that!

Find The Best Keywords


The best way to drive traffic to your website is through Content Marketing.  A clear definition of Content Marketing is writing quality content or posts that are strategically developed for a targeted group with the intent of educating the reader but also to increase website traffic and enhance website interactions and conversions.  whew!

When you write a Blog (content)  for your website about a specific topic, you will first want to do your keyword research and find out what people are typing into Google when seeking information related to your topic.

The very best keyword search tool that I have found on the market is Jaaxy.  I suggest that you read this post to learn about Jaaxy and also how to learn how to use Jaaxy for free.

Anytime I write a new Blog Post for my site, my first step is to find the targeted key words for my website that will bring the most traffic.  I always use Jaaxy.  I know that you will love it too!

Write Quality Content


People are not going to revisit your site unless you are writing interesting and helpful information.  Use your keywords in your content but don’t over-do it.  Write like you are talking to someone.  Your writing should be conversational.  You should post content frequently and this will help with SEO.  I would strive for at least 2 post per week to keep your site active with fresh content.  Google likes this.

WA SEO experts recommend writing posts of at least 1500 words or more.  If you write 1500 words or more of quality content, that increases your chances of getting ranked on the first page of Google for your key words.  As Internet Entrepreneurs, page 1 Google Ranking is what we all desire.  Well, it can happen sooner than you think if you follow these tips!

Register Your Site With Google Webmaster Tools


I always make sure that I set up each of my websites with Google Webmaster Tools.  Search for Google Webmaster Tools and log in with your Google Account.  You can register your site by selecting Add A Property and then follow the site verification instructions.

I also like to make it a practice to register my sites with Yahoo which will also register it with Bing since Bing and Yahoo have partnered up.

You an also submit a sitemap through Google Webmaster Tools.  This will let Google know that your website is out there and get your pages indexed.  You can generate your site map from the All In One SEO on your WordPress website as mentioned below.  We talk about All In One SEO a few sections down the page.

 

Google Search Console


 

Once your site is Registered and Verified, you can then use a feature called the URL Inspection Tool.  I do this with each of my posts to ensure that Google sees my page.  So, I just got in the habit of doing the URL Inspection Tool for my post each time I create a new post.

Once logged into the Google Search Console, select the URL Inspection Tool in the column on the left.

You can also do the URL Inspection Tool again for the same post if the content on your post changes significantly.  But, just make sure you do it once and there is no need to get carried away with it.  Google will find your website and content when you do this!

 

Add Internal And External Links


For my posts, I shoot for 2 internal Links and 2 external links.  Internal Links are links to your own content within your own website.  You can work these into your post.  Internal Links tell Google that you trust your own information.  I also shoot for adding 2 External Links.  External Links are when you post a link within your content to another person’s website outside of yours.  When you do this, be sure to check the option that says Open in new Window when adding the link.  You want visitors to be able to view the other website without taking them out of your website.  Top SEO peeps believe that having both Internal and External Links on your posts are good for your rankings.

All In One SEO For WordPress


I develop all of my websites in WordPress.  WordPress is an easy way to create your very own website without any coding.  Click here to get your FREE WordPress websites and Hosting.

WordPress allows you to add Plug-Ins which help you do specific tasks quick and easy.  I recommend the All In One SEO Plug-in that comes with WordPress.  This plug-in allows you to fill in information to optimize each post that you create.   All In One SEO was developed in 2007 and it is still today one of the most downloaded plug-ins in WordPress.  It is also very user-friendly!

Post in the Discussion Area of Your YouTube Channel


When you are ready to Publish your post and show it to the world, SEO experts recommend posting it in the Discussion Ares of your YouTube Channel.  When you post in the Discussion area, be sure to do it like this.

Meta Title

Meta Description

Link to your post

This also counts as an External Link that is linking back to your site.  Some call this a Back Link.  It helps with SEO to have links from other sources to your site.  This will help increase your rankings because it shows that others are linking back to your content.

 

Check Your Website Traffic Through Google Analytics


Google Analytics is a great and user-friendly tool to use to check your website traffic.  Here you will get all of the information that you need to see how your website is doing.  Do not get discouraged though because it can take time and determination to drive consistent traffic to a website.  But, keep at it and don’t give up.  I can promise you that it is worth your time and effort.

 

Check Your Google Site Ranking Through JAAXY


I use JAAXY to check my site rankings in Google.  JAAXY will check the first 10 pages of Google for me to see if my site ranks on those pages.  If you are on the first 10 pages of Google, you are oing great and well on your way!  The ultimate goal of Internet Entrepreneurs is to achieve a page 1 Google Ranking.  Keep up the good work and you’ve got this!

  1. Excellent article on SEO.  I couldn’t have said it better myself.  I myself have the most luck with search engine traffic to my site, so it’s definitely the number one area to focus on, hands down.  If you don’t have great SEO on your site, no amount of social media ads or Google ads is going to help.  Plus that gets pricey if you relied solely on those.  Thanks for the post, it was a fun read.

    1. Selenity,

      Thank you for your comment!  You are so right!  I rely on SEO for my traffic.

      Paid ads can  get extremely pricey and we are trying to write quality and make money and not spend it!  Getting traffic through SEO is the best way in my opinion to build your business online.  Building traffic through SEO is everlasting and not temporary like paid ads.

      I learned all of my SEO tips and tricks though Wealthy Affiliate.  They are experts in SEO and they have a proven track record of success to follow.  They know the pattern to success with SEO and they are passing it along.

  2. Great post! I enjoyed reading your article, it has valuable information for newbies to start a new website. I started my website two months ago with Wealthy Affiliate.They have the best training system for everyone to learn and succeed in the online business. 

    I agree with you when you stated  “SEO is not just about making your website better for the search engine.  It is also about making it a better and more quality user experience for people that visit your site”. Writing keyword rich content is very important to get ranked into Google, Yahoo, And Bing.

    1. Sam,

      Yes, definitely it is so important to write keyword rich content.  Before I write each article/post, I find my keywords to target with that post through JAAXY.  JAAXY is the best keyword research tool on the market in my opinion.  JAAXY tells me exactly how many people each month are searching in Google for each keyword.  And, it tells me the amount of traffic to expect if I rank on page 1 of Google.  I can also see how many sites in Google are competing for each exact keyword.  With this information, I know exactly which keywords to use and what to expect if I get a page 1 ranking.

      But, be assured that if you follow the proper SEO techniques in this post, your article will rank in time.

  3. A wonderful article about getting your website ranked with SEO. I do like the fact that I mentioned the different methods in achieving this. I think that the methods like Google console and analytics are very important for SEO. I always try to optimise my website with these 2 particular programs which make it very easy for me to track my content and how much traffic is coming to my site. Every marketer should start by having SEO as part of their marketing strategy. Thank u for sharing!

    1. Carmeta,

      Thank you so much for your comment!  It is a beautiful thing to have a website but the way we make sure that people see it is through Search Engine Optimization.  Bingo!  It sounds like you are on the right track!

      I am in a continual process of studying SEO and the art and the science of driving traffic to my website.  And, as I learn new tips and tricks, I will pass the information along through the articles on my website.

      Thank you for reading!
