When writing content for your website, put yourself in other people’s shoes. The people who will be your target audience or market. Know possible questions they might have about your topic, and give answers to them in your site.
3. Learn from best
Take time to browse and read sites that get lots of visitors and have same topic as yours.
Take note of any recurring phrases in these sites’ text. These phrases are most likely keywords. Incorporate them in your own site’s content.
Don’t saturate your site with keywords, though. You don’t want to sound redundant to your site visitor. A 3% density level would be enough.
In searching for right keywords, use Overture’s services. It may take quite some time, as it is more of a trial-and-error method, but results are conclusive, and a pattern can easily be observed.
4. Submit…and re-submit
You will never get a certain job if you don’t send in your application for it. The same thing applies to SEO.
If you want your site to be recognized by search engines, then go out of your way to register your site with them.
After a couple of weeks, search for your site by putting in keywords you used in your content. If your site is still not coming up in search results.
Do not give up, and just re-register and resubmit your site. It’s possible that your initial registration was discarded without being processed.
This usually happens because a lot of submissions are being done everyday.
5. Constantly update your site
This can’t be stressed enough. Search engine spiders love sites which constantly change their content.
You can’t build your site and expect it to last forever without any updates. There will come a time when those search engine spiders would stop fetching your site for query requests.
Here’s a tip: integrate a blog program in your site. Blogs have a user-friendly interface that allows easy updates.
