Article by Mary Ricardoe
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) done properly can draw significant targeted free traffic to your website. It is important to follow ethical seo practices that will not get your site penalized or banned. Also keep in mind that no one can guarantee top rankings for any keyword as the exact formula used by the top search engines to rank sites is not revealed. Here are some tips that can help your site get higher rankings over time:
Tip 1: Create unique content
The major search engines like Google hate duplicate sites so if you are an affiliate marketer you can still promote affiliate products on your site but be sure to use a unique domain name and make your site look unique as far as graphics and logo. Also add unique text content like articles or product reviews.
Tip 2: Update regularly
Making regular updates is an important factor and will help to keep visitors returning to your site. You can add a blog to your site and make regular and useful posts related to the topic of your site. The more fresh text content you can add the better the chances are your site will rank highly.
Tip 3: Submit articles
Article marketing is a proven way to increase the link popularity of your site and to establish yourself as an authority figure. All you need to do is write a useful article related to the topic of your site and then submit it to major article directories or use an article submission service.
At the end of each article you write is your author bio box where you get to place 2 links back to your site. You can add keywords to these links to help you rank better for those terms. Do not spam the article directories thinking that more is better. This will only get your author account deleted and will not help with improved search engine rankings either. Always submit unique and original articles that are useful for those that choose to read them.
Tip 4: Let other related sites know about your new site
Locate other good quality related sites and let them know about your site and ask them if they can link to you in exchange for a link back to them also known as a reciprocal link exchange. Link to only sites that are good quality and keep the number of sites you link to below 50. Try to find sites that rank highly for key terms in your niche as these are the sites the search engines respect so ask them for a link even if the chances of getting one are low.
Tip 5: Submit to link directories
Building link popularity is a key factor in getting better search engine rankings. Submit your site to major link directories as many people visit these directories and they can send you some traffic as well as increase link popularity. Try some of these seo tips to help you get better rankings and increased free organic search engine traffic.
