There are two things you need to do for your Website to get traffic in addition to creating great content, which, I presume, you’re already doing. One of those things is taking care of search engine optimization, or SEO. The other is getting backlinks to your site. The first is hard; the second one is really time consuming.

I’ve written from time to time about search engine optimization, or SEO, as it’s commonly known. SEO is about tweaking your site on a page by page basis to ensure that the search engines know exactly what each page or blog post is about. That’s great, but a lot of articles toss about SEO terms as though you should already know what they’re talking about. SEO terms aren’t that complicated, and there aren’t that many that are really important, so in this blog post I thought I’d discuss them.
It turns out that Google uses more than 200 factors to decide how to rank your site in their search engine rankings, or SERPS. That’s daunting, but a lot of those factors are pretty obscure and a few of them have to do with things you can’t easily control. In this post, I’ll cover the SEO terms that are of the most importance to the average or beginning Internet marketer. That way, you can become familiar with them and start to adjust them to get your site to rank a bit higher in the SERPS.
If you have a Website, you want traffic. It doesn’t matter if you blog for fun or build a site to make money. Whatever you’re doing, you want people to see it. To get traffic, you either need to pay money for advertising, or make sure that you have both compelling content and other sites linking to you. You also need to make sure that your “on page SEO” is properly set up so that the search engines will know what your site is about.
SEO stands for “search engine optimization,” and “on page SEO” refers to making sure that your site’s individual pages and posts are properly tweaked so that Bing and Google know exactly what each page and post on your site is about. If you have a blog on dog training, you want your on page SEO to make it perfectly clear to Google that your site is about exactly that, and nothing else.
Of course, the things that the search engines are looking for change from time to time, so I thought it might be time for a refresher regarding what the search engines are looking for right now when it comes to on page SEO.
I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s really hard to get your site to show up near the top of the search engine rankings. Unless you’re in a niche without a lot of competition, you’ll be continually fighting to stay near the top of the search engine rankings with Google or Bing.
That’s just part of having a Website, and even the biggest companies fight to obtain and maintain their search engine rankings. I’ve written before about various ways to get to the top, but unfortunately, there’s no single way to do it. Google, for example, uses more than two hundred factors to determine their search engine rankings.
Still, some factors are more important than others, and in this post, I’ll tell you about one really important factor that can make a huge difference in how your site performs in the Google and Bing search engine rankings. Continue reading →
You can’t make money with a Website if you don’t have traffic, and if you’re on a budget, free traffic is the best option. For that, you’re going to have to rely on favorable search engine rankings, and that can be a problem. First of all, the market in most niches is pretty competitive. Second of all, the search engines, particularly Google, seem to change what they’re looking for on a daily basis. Every time there’s a new “animal” update, such as Panda or Penguin, Google shakes up the search engine rankings completely, throwing the entire Internet off balance.
While it’s not possible to know what the search engines will be looking for six months from now, it is possible to know what they’re interested in right now. We recently came across an interesting blog post that distilled the results of more than one million Google search results and came up with a pretty definitive list of the things that seem to be important to the search giant…today, at least. Read on for more about search engine rankings.
I’ve written quite a bit about search engine optimization, or SEO, as it is commonly known. Search engine optimization is the tweaking of your site’s settings and your content to ensure that the search engines know what your content is about. Why would you want to do that? If your site is about dog training, you likely want people searching for dog training information in Google or Bing to find your site. Good search engine optimization practices will ensure that the search engines are aware that your content covers that topic so they can rank your site and send traffic your way.
While it’s possible to overemphasize search engine optimization, some SEO is necessary. The days when you could just stuff keywords into your page a few dozen times to hammer home the point are gone; it’s now necessary to gently persuade the search engines regarding your content. It is possible to over do it, though, and you have to realize that there are some boundaries regarding what the search engines are going to regard as credible.
As I have mentioned before, if you’re involved in online affiliate marketing, you’re likely to spend about 90% of your effort trying to get Website traffic. Obtaining organic Website traffic from the search engines is generally regarded as the most difficult thing to do in making your Website successful. There are a number of reasons for this, but one of them is simply competition. There are millions of Websites out there and in many marketing niches, there’s lots of competition.
There are ways to get Website traffic relatively easily, provided that you don’t mind spending a lot of money. Advertising usually works, but most of us don’t have a lot of money to spend on proper advertising, such as radio or television ads. Even online advertising, such as pay per click advertising, can cost you a bundle until you get it optimized. In some niches, however, it can cost nearly $100 per click to get visitors through Google Adwords. For most people trying to make money online, that can be a deal breaker. It’s understandably discouraging, but it’s not that hard to get Website traffic if you go about attracting it in the right way.
If you want to cause panic in the life of Internet marketers, just mention Google updates. While Google has been constantly tweaking their search and ranking algorithms since they day the site went online, the past four years have been particularly hard on marketers. Sites that once ranked well for highly competitive keywords have been known to disappear completely from Google’s index overnight, and every new update seems to invoke terror in marketers, as they wonder whether their sites will survive the next shakeup in the search rankings.
If you’re building your sites correctly, none of these Google updates should present a problem for you. The sorts of sites that are generally thrown out after each update are sites that are not regarded as “quality” sites, and most of them have little or no content or perhaps the content that they have is duplicated from elsewhere. In this post, I’ll offer a few tips that might help you build and maintain your site in such a way that the occasional shakeup in the search engine rankings shouldn’t bother you at all. If you’re lucky, you might even see your rankings improve if sites that rank ahead of you fall out of the listings or see their rankings drop as a result of Google updates.
Keyword Research – Building the Site Your Visitors Want
There are a number of different ways to build a Website and to create content. If you’re creating a blog, such as this site, you can write about whatever you want. People may, or may not, find what you’re writing about, but if you’re truly passionate about what you have to say, it may not matter if you have readers or not. You just might want to say your piece and be happy that it’s out there. Most of us, however, want to have visitors to our site, especially if we’re trying to make money online. Getting visitors is an important part of that, and that’s where keyword research comes in.
Keyword research is about finding things to write about that are relevant to what your visitors want to see. There are lots of ways that I could find topics to write about here, but I try to write about topics that are of interest to people who want to work online from home. I use various methods to decide what it is I want to write about on any given day, but I always have to spend some time deciding what those topics are going to be, and I usually try to make those topics something that I know will be of interest to fellow affiliate marketers.
A lot of people who would like to make money online are afraid, for whatever reason, of getting involved in search engine optimization, or SEO. I’ve written before about SEO basics, and I’ve never found it to be particularly difficult to attract traffic based on search engine optimization alone. Still, a lot of people are scared of it and they’d rather find some way of making money online that doesn’t involve spending a lot of time tweaking a Website.
That’s fine; we all have to work within our own comfort zone, and if you’re not comfortable with SEO, then you need to find another way to get traffic to your Website without the benefit of optimized pages. I came across a method recently that has been proven to work with time and I’ve used variations of it over the years and I can attest to the fact that it will work. It isn’t even all that difficult to do, but you will spend a bit of time doing some off-site work in order to get the visitors to come to your site so that they’ll buy your products and allow you to make money.
