Does Blogging help SEO?

A much talked about topic of discussion, with respect to blogging and SEO. So does blogging actually help SEO? Well I would definitely say a strong and bold YES!

Having been in this optimization industry for quite some time now, I have always found myself preaching people interested to make their blogs work for them and their organization, about many advantages that blogs are sure to bring, when seen from the SEO point of view.

I have put some of my ideas that I have always found as reasons how blogs can be useful for search engine optimization:

Refreshing and latest content:

Blogs usually contain content relating to the present state and also stuff that is fresh and good to be read, apart from the stale information that has been repeated by every other site. This kindles an interest in the readers to come back to your blog and keep them updated of whatever you write. This helps in getting more traffic to your site, thereby helping in optimizing your site.

Planned writing and proper content categorization:
When blogs are written on specific themes and categorized based on the topics, it makes it much easier for the search engines to spot your blog content easily, as they understand your blog much better when categorized properly.

Easy URL structure of blogs:
Usually blogs have simple URL structures. This helps the search engines to track the blogs easily, thereby conveying the message in your blogs to many other readers out there.

Deep linking:
Deep linking of anchor texts in service related blogs, to information about the product or shopping pages, that are located deep inside the site, also proves to be highly useful, especially for long keyword phrases.

Linking among blogs:

When the content in blogs relate to each other, blogs can be linked together. Also when media attachments like audio, video and the likes are attached to blogs, they attract the attention of readers, which also adds to blog marketing.

Interactive advantage in blogs:

Make use of the advantage of interaction among the writer and the readers, in Blogs, among the readers. This is possible using trackback features, comments section in the blogs and the likes. Also, readers who have liked a particular blog or post, might even mention about your posts in their blogs or any other social media communities, that assists in getting more visitors to your blog, further resulting in incoming links. This, in turn, helps in the search engines to spot your blog easily, thereby ranking it among the top pages.

Register in Twitter.com:

Twitter is one of the best social messaging site that is free to use. Register in Twitter by adding your profile to it. Don’t forget to give this link when you give any good and valuable suggestions in other top blogs, along with following profiles of people who relate to your kind of writing. This way many will follow your profile as well. Now once this is done, as and when you write blogs you can post the link of it in your twitter page. Automatically your (my) profile followers would get the link and they would go through the content as well and also get benefit of tweets. This results in many inbound links and clicks, thereby increasing my SEO ranking as well.

RSS traffic:

Subscription to your RSS feeds would get in a good source of traffic into your blog site. And once the traffic is in, automatically the search engine rankings also increase.

Additional benefits of blogging:

The Directories advantage! Now that your blog has RSS feeds, it is possible that your blog would be clearly seen in the RSS and blog directories and search engines.

Hope above Tips and Ideas will help you understand how much Blog helps SEO :) Try out and let me know your feedback, cheers!

    Does Changing IP Effects Domain Search Engine Rankings?

    The answer is not YES or NO :), it depends

    Changing IP has less impact on SE rankings and it can be undergone through ethical promotion in short time.Now Search engines are smart enough to find the change and to find why. You don't have to worry about it.

    But, before changing you need to check out the below conditions

    (1) your new host should not have loads of banned ip's because of spamming and you should not end up on one of those IP's, it will effect your rankings for sure

    (2) your new host should not be often down, this will definitely have an impact on your rankings, check out the up-time before you host

    (3) your new host should not ban spiders to save bandwidth, this can have an effect on search engine ranking


    Now Google offers domain name registration through Google’s Apps partnered with GoDaddy and eNom, Google users can spend $10 for a 1 year private domain registration. For now Google offer, .com, .net,.org, .biz, and .info and we can expect more to come on the line, so i believe you dont have to worry about "changing IP effect ranking" when you go for Google, you can get fresh IP :)

    For more from Google: Will switching hosting companies or changing my IP address affect my listing in Google?

    Understanding Keyword Density

    Do you know why your competitor always stands TOP and some goes DOWN to END?

    Competitor who stands top all-time understands keyword density, high competitive keyword position can be attained only through proper keyword density and it can be approximately 2 - 8%.

    Some list fast and we think how they do, they stuff keywords and dont meet keyword density rule, don’t mind them as a long term competitor, they can be dropped anytime, i have noticed many.

    Try out this tool go rank which helps you to optimize websites with proper keyword density ratio

    How keyword density been calculated?

    Keyword density concerns with the ratio (%) of your keywords added within total number of indexed words within a webpage

    Keyword density in % = Targeted Keywords / total number of indexed words * 100 (within a webpage)

    Suppose, you have used keyword 10 times on your page and total number of words on your webpage is 200. So in this case 10 divided by 200 = .05

    Keyword density is referred as percentage. So we need to multiply .05 by 100 to get percentage figure

    Calculation would look like this:

    .05 x 100 = 5%

    So your page has a keyword density of 5%.

    By this you can optimize your web page effectively "matching keyword density, meeting SE algorithm rule" which brings top results on the search engines.

    Secrets Behind Link Building, Avoid Search Engine Spamming


    On reading this post you should be able to do link building with simple steps that I believe should help you do effective link building. For a natural link simulation most of your back links should adhere to the following strategies:

    Your targeted keywords need to vary a lot in anchor. Limited number of “click here” should help you to have good link building. When it comes to English websites, it is commonly accepted that more weight-age (not the page rank) is got from links of related pages. Try not to have the back links all over the footage of the site or at one particular location. Try spreading it over the page, like top of page, or within the text, navigation, etc.

    Never try to place hundreds of link for a new site on the very first day. Gradually increase the number of links. This normally relates to the number of links a site gets. Hence if a site has an average of 20 links per day, then do not try to increase it to 200 links suddenly. Chances of being banned from Google are high. Focus on quality not to the quantity links. Having most of your back links from the adult sites or casino sites or pharmacy sites is not recommended and such sites are known for spam.

    Google tends to keep a track of all the IP, checks your links coming from different C Class IP or Not. So see to that all the links to your site comes from different websites. Always have a good combination of links from new and old sites. Reciprocal links are a good option for back links (Yahoo and Bing (Former MSN), but too many of them can be a problem too. 3 way linking is a good option. Do not make the mistake of underestimating the back links to your internal pages. Since SEO is done for your internal pages, have the back links done for these pages too. Use varied anchor for these internal pages too both as inbound and outbound links.

    Directories need to do some extra work on the links that you already have. Such directories need to be opted. Only a few selected directories like ODP and Yahoo are trustworthy. Other directories that might look good can even cause much problem to your links. So you need to be careful while submitting to directories. The time limit of back links seems to play a crucial role, and this is taken into serious consideration by the Google Sand box filter. So focus on links to be rented on long-term basis as far as possible.

    Google tends to devalue the back links that come from links that could have words like Advertisements and sponsors. So be alert while you look for back links from similar links. Google is seen to use the advanced relation algorithm and the co-citation system in its algorithm. Hence we need to be careful when we choose our back links. Do not have your links from the pages that are with bad neighborhood and also the sites that they themselves link to such type of sites.

    There are numerous factors that Google takes into consideration – like the IP Address, domain name, written language of the site, etc. Apart from these it is also very necessary to show the search results in the Google country specific searches. So be very cautious in deciding the language of the site when you design it for Google.

    Go through the above points very carefully and recheck your website and if any found in your website, rectify them. If you continue with those mistake, they could harm your website at any minute.

    Strategies that get you links:
    A method where content is considered very important and also gets its links naturally is called link baiting. Any link that you have due to your content is considered in this type

    Link submission directories:
    There are many link builders and SEOs who focus on link building and directory submission. We have different types of directories: pay-for-inclusion, reciprocal required, free and niche directories. And we do have specialists working on each of these directories. There is a huge list of free SEO friendly directories available for submissions. And about the reciprocal directories, we have both the brokers and non-brokers

    Submission of Articles:
    Try writing articles having links and have them in the resource page of your site. You can also pay someone to have the articles written for you and use some specialist to submit them in to the directories

    2way and 3way links:
    The old and a good way to get links – I link to your site and you link to my site. This will be helpful if you have around 50 plus sites, which can help you to give and take most relevant links. And remember the rule: its always that you contact people and they do not contact you first.

    Get links from your own websites:
    This is the best way to get links in case your website had lots of relevant pages

    Alert with Link Vault:
    By this method you get mostly footer links and low quality links, try avoiding link vault in your site with red flag

    Subscribing to high page rank sites:
    It is also possible for you to rent pages with high page ranks ( 5-9) for various prices But remember to rent only relevant sites. Renting too many sites of high PR is not preferred

    Avoid Search Engine Spamming:

    Search Engines are used to provide the most accurate results for your search queries. Still people have been trying to play with search engines. Search engines are regularly upgraded to provide better results and hence forth they cannot be misjudged if they give poor results due to bad search queries by the visitor. Still search engines are being developed to withstand all these tricks and provide the best of the results to the users.

    Spamming of search engines includes all possible ways to cheat the search engines, and it is to be noted that these methods put tour website at a very high risk.These practices that give us false results and the websites that fool us are penalised and they tend to lose their ranks or are blacklisted and are removed from the indexes of the search engines and can also go into serious legal issues.

    Points that are considered while identifying a website using spamming techniques or not :

    · When a website consists of hidden links or hidden texts or invisible texts
    · Pages that are not meant for people who visit, but are generated by machines for search engine activities.
    · Pages that are not belonging to your main website, but instead are created for search engine purpose only.
    · Websites that consists a huge amount of keywords in the content, but the page is of no value.
    · When the visitor (human) and the search engines are not viewing the similar content - cloaking
    · Link spamming – linking with content that is of poor quality / less content
    · Excess usage of cross-linking, keywords in the page
    · Presence of site submission software's that execute automatic URL submissions
    · When you submit your page/site to a search engine/directory more than once in a month
    · Title tags, keyword meta tags that have words that are not seen anywhere in the page content
    · Using same meta tag in multiple place (like when you use more than one title tag)
    · Website pages are duplicated - same content, different file names

    Decide - Spamming techniques or ethical search engine optimization technique

    Search Engines now in usage handle spamming very effectively and if any spamming is found, the website can even be not indexed. In case if you are using any of these spamming techniques and these bring in a lot of traffic to your site, then be sure that this spamming technique is sure to be identified by the search engine or chances of any user also sending report about your tactics is high. This can very easily bring down your page rank and even be blacklisted and banned.

    Ethical practices always assure you long-term successful results and do not let you lose anything. While the Spamming techniques give you short-term success with very high risk, and hence this is not recommended. Search engines take the pride on giving valid information and hence they never allow anyone to fool them, and if they identify anyone on doing this, they are sure to be taken out of their web presence.

    Importance of Link Building, Say Yes to Quality Links and No to Quantity Links

    We all see that SEO has many factors, out of all Link Building / Link Promotion is a major factor, all webmasters, small scale business owners and bloggers wants to build quality links for there site or individual web page to increase website popularity and visibility. By reading the blog post you can learn various techniques by which you can build quality links for your website / blog.

    We see links of various types, before there was a trend of two way links normally called as reciprocal links, now it has been ruled out by most of the search engine and importance are less when compared to one way, three way and ring techniques.

    Google, the most important search engine gives importance to one way linking and this can be attained by following these techniques like directory submissions with page rank 3 plus, press release and article submissions depending on the theme and crowd of your website, think of your visitors and submit to most related category, you don’t have to pay for links when you have free quality directories, just educate yourself and get started with DMOZ submission.

    Very important thing to be known when you submit your links, don’t submit to deep links, not more than two folder from the root as given in below example,

    Good: http://www.example.com/abc.html
    Good: http://www.example.com/abc/xyz.html
    Bad: http://www.example.com/abc/xyz/123.html
    Bad: http://www.example.com/abc.php?id=12

    And the page should not have more than 50 to 80 links, also check whether the directories are been able to crawl by search engine, i have noticed some of the directories add no index and no follow to their category pages in order to restrict their page rank distribution, so that the home page has good page rank, but these directories will not survive for long, they will be down after some time in their rank.

    One of the major point to be noted is, use your keywords as anchor tags when you build links but do not stuff keywords, make it catchy so that you can improve your keyword online visibility and also referral clicks for your visitors when they browse through the directories.

    And also find quality links with the help of Google advanced operator, as below, place it to the search box and click search.

    intitle:add+url OR intitle:submit+your+site OR intitle:add+your+site " your search keyword"

    One quality links can open your competition, it can win your competition with few wrong links, also you might have amazed on seeing a website with very few links and yet stand in the top 10 in search result, look into the links and recognize the quality of the Backlinks.

    Try to avoid automatic directory submission and build manual links, or approach a company who does manual link submission service, Build links and Build your business and website / blog popularity, hope you had nice time with this post, do subscribe this blog to know more upcoming posts.

    Domain Parking Practices In and Out

    There are many ways by which you can make money on the internet and domain parking is one of the simple ways. You can park your domain while you are building your site. This is an efficient way to set your site while it is being built and also avoid disappointing your visitors while site is being built. There are some domain owners who just park their domain and do not develop their site, with money being their main motive. Companies can also make use of domain parking as one of the options to divert its website traffic to another website if its own.

    You need to have the knowledge on what type of domain you could park. Creative and effective thinking and planning can help you to buy domain names with this idea and capitalize on them. If you come up with a new idea and you realize that there is no domain name ( i.e. with .com) for it, then you can immediately park the domain name and earn from it. On doing so, the probability of that you being approached by someone who very badly needs that name is high, and they can even pay you a very huge amount for it. Try filling the landing page with suitable ads or affiliate marketing ads or banners, and it can give you regular income (monetized domain parking). You can also have your internet presence by just having a page with "under construction" or "coming soon" words on the page. This can help you to park the web page before it is ready to launch (demonetized domain parking). Never delay too much in buying a domain name, because by the time you decide on buying one, someone else could possibly have owned that domain name and capitalizing on it already.

    Incase you are not looking out to make money, just sign up for some affiliate programs, build up a webpage and maintain the page and fill it with advertisements. You can also opt to share the profits when you work with some company who can manage it for you.

    The domain owner is generally paid depending on the number of links that have been visited (like pay per click), and also how these clicks have been beneficial. The intent of the visitor can be found out based on the keywords the visitor uses for the domain name.

    There are many companies who do domain parking and related management activities for you. They pay you some percentage of the fees. Some give you a very cheap domain registrations and also with some incentives to gear you up to join.

    There are numerous domain parking options available for you. Incase you are not able to come up with any catchy phrase, just choose some name that is similar to some other company or competitor, which can give you high chances of hits.

    You can also choose to opt for expired domain, if you wish to. As these domains used as websites earlier and expired, still hold on to some inbound links. Such domains on reusing can start with more visitors initially. When the site operators and the search engines remove the earlier available inbound links of the site, the number of visitors can go down gradually.

    In the midst of making money, you always need to be quite careful, with some people in the market who do unethical business practices. They can go to the extent of redirecting the homepages to the domain that is parked so that people tend to click that domain that is parked. Always be alert with the black hat practices that some people follow to get on the top or make money is a shorter period. Do focus in reading the fine prints since some scams out there can benefit these domain parking company rather more than what they benefit the individuals.

    Please Note: Domain parking practices is other wise known as domain squatting or cyber squatting to some people and there are companies who charge against people who domain park against their brands or brand names which they consider as their sole intellectual properties. ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) handles complaints regarding domain parking scams.

    Pick Your Target Keywords and Position Your Keywords Meant for Search Engine Eyes

    How do you think your visitors search for your web page? It's easy. The words you think and imagine and type in search engine box are your targeted business keywords

    For example, if you own a gift site, and if any visitor type "Gift shop online", then it's your target keywords for your site that you want your webpage to be in top ten results.

    Make your website with different targeted keywords that reflects your web page content. Say you have another page for gifts especially for women, then "Gifts for women" is your target keyword for that webpage, you can also know the search count or keyword strength by using Google or overture keyword tool

    An important point to be remembered is that your target keyword should be two or more words in length. Most of visitors make the mistake of typing single word like "Gifts". Single words used as keywords are odd and they don't bring success.

    Make sure your target keywords are placed in fine locations on a webpage. The page title tag is more important and it looks like
    < title > Gift shop online, Keyword 2, Keyword 3< / title >.Missing title tag is the main reason why most of the website are ranked poor.

    Title should be relatively short and attractive with not more than 3 to 4 keyword phrases and each keywords should be supportive to each other. For better understanding, if the first one is "gift shop online" then the next one can be "gift sale online". You can also try with a sentence format like
    "Gift sale online shop". When it appears in search engine listings, short and attractive title makes the visitors to click through your site.

    Search engines prefer web pages with keywords in headlines and also to appear in first paragraph of your webpage. While using keywords in your content use < p > tag and simplify your table structure.

    Keywords in navigational links play a vital role and have its own importance to search engine eyes. Say the first column has navigation links and second column has keywords as text.

    We see the pages like this

    Home Gift shop online
    Webpage 1 Gifts for Men
    Webpage 2 Gifts for Women
    Webpage 3 Gifts for Kids


    Search engines see pages like this

    Home
    Webpage 1
    Webpage 2

    Webpage 3

    Gift shop online
    Gifts for Men
    Gifts for Women
    Gifts for Kids


    You can see the keywords have moved down the page and it has to be fixed by simplifying your table structure, it's been seen online that most of the people simply forget to think on how tables might affect the web page for search engines listings. Follow these tips so that search engine crawls yours web pages happily

    Most of those searchers are from local peoples, target those places by building your website popularity through regional free directories and location based search engines, find exact customer visit by configure free Google analytics, use those location based keywords in your pages as titles, in meta description two times and very important is to use keyword in Content head as <> tag and Content body, if you have images use the keyword in Alt attribute, if it is a product image use the keyword as file name design accordingly and see that you don’t block the images using robot.txt file, since i generally see most of the product based site are well optimized but they block images using robots unknowingly. Now a days mostly customers use image search engines for finding products easily apart from froogle product search engine.

    Internet marketing has not only made people to setup business online, same time its has made competition big! So build a potential website and market to millions of customers, Good luck
