Learn How To SEO - It's EASY!
Hello and welcome to this SEO tutorial!
In this tutorial, you will find the necessary steps for making sure your content is Search Engine Optimized and ready to conquer Google Page 1!
Good luck and please, let me know if you have any further questions.
1. Find a Good Keyword - Use Jaaxy the Amazing Keyword Tool
A right keyword is what you'll start with when doing your SEO.
a) If you go to Jaaxy, try to find one keyword or keyword phrase that has:
- over 50 searches and QSR under 100 ('low hanging fruit' keywords)
*note: if you are writing a product review, and the product has just been launched, the search volume might be significantly lower than 50. That's understandable because the search will go higher as the product is promoted and advertised after the launch.
b) You need only ONE keyword or keyword phrase.
Your post will rank for more than just this one keyword anyway, so you need to get just the one and concentrate on it.
Put your keyword in:
1. The title of your post
2. H1 tag title in the post's first paragraph
3. In the first paragraph
4. In the last paragraph
5. If it feels natural in the content, you can put it more often
2. Write Good and Long Post
To rank high and to rank fast in Google, first of all, you need to write good content.
There is no way around it.
What does that mean?
a) It means, writing a helpful and long post. Yes, you need to do both of those things.
Posts of 500 words simply, do not cut it. You are just wasting your time.
Add another 500, and you might have something actually to use the SEO rules on.
Add another 500, and you'll be in with a great chance.
b) Write an exciting Headline, or at the very least, not a boring one. See what your competition is doing and try to do the same or better.
c) Write short paragraphs
d) Write short sentences
e) Bold all the essential words/parts
f) Use H1 tag for your title, H2, and H3 for other titles or important parts of the post
3. Use Relevant Images
Images are essential for good user experience and also for getting your point across.
a) Make sure your images are relevant to what you are writing about
b) Images need to be optimized. You can use EWWW plug-in to do that. This plug-in is included already on the new sites here at WA.
c) ALT Description - don't miss this one!
ALT Description is for the visually impaired people, to include a detailed description of what is on the picture.
This is not a place for your keyword (as I have seen it explained on quite a few blogs).
Doing the ALT description you are not just aiding your SEO, but also being a decent human being helping out those who cannot see the picture you've uploaded on your blog.
4. Write a Good META Description
META description is the bit of text that appears underneath your title in the Google search.
a) META is 160 words
b) It needs to communicate to your potential reader what is your post about
c) I write one or two important words in capital letters (this is not a rule, it's just something I do if it's appropriate for the post)
