I have decided to write a series on Search Engine Optimization in the form of a list so my readers can have some direction to do their own on site SEO!
I’m not a SEO Expert by any means however I have lived by some of these techniques and Darin.CC ranks very well for some of my niche keywords!
Select your keywords
Select keywords that match your website niche.
Target keyword phrases rather than individual words, these are much easier to target and you will receive better targeted visitors.
Find keywords that are popular in your niche (searched often). A free service to help you find your keywords can be found at http://www.darin.cc/keyword-suggestion/.
Avoid words like “for” or “with” as these are ignored by search engines.
Keep your keywords to approximately 1 to 3 primary keywords which should be promoted most often.
Good Keyword Phrase: search engine marketing, search marketing, internet marketing
Bad Keyword Phrase: search and internet marketing for websites
Prioritize your keywords
Wherever you place your keywords, either on your internal links or pages, always put your keywords in order of relevance.
Place important keyword in position one, second important in position two and etc.
An example of a page title: Search Engine Marketing & Advertising
“search engine marketing” is the most important keyword phrase
