Where Does the Right SEO Strategy Begin?


SEO Strategy Begin

Are you starting in the world of SEO? Welcome! In this post we will clarify the picture and we will explain everything you need to know to implement a strategy that works.

As you know, or maybe you’re finding, along a series of 5 articles I have been introduced in this blog different aspects of the SEO.

And to close the loop, I thought it would be interesting to summarize all of them to give you an overview of how you could start practicing. Keep reading!

Keyword Search

A good choice of Keyword is essential to save your efforts and avoid setting unattainable goals. Therefore, I suggest that the first step is to create a list of Keywords and validate it, trying to figure out which are the ones that can bring qualified visitors.

In the article “How To Do Keyword Research – The Beginners Guide to SEO” Moz explained different methods to help you build your list and see if they can really bring you traffic.

But do not forget that, besides having a reasonable number of searches, these keywords are bringing visitors who really need what you offer.

Keyword Analysis

Once you have your list of relevant keywords and potential qualified traffic, you should analyze its viability. It is trying to figure out which of them would be possible to position your current resources (domain authority, bonds, budget, etc.)

In “The Ultimate Guide to Keyword Competition: Tips from 35 Experts on Competitive Keyword Analysis” You can learn a simple method to begin familiar with the subject. And I take this opportunity to remind you once again that, in my opinion, any analysis you do with various metrics, you use it to compare Keywords together.

Not you stay stuck in the process of calculating different metrics of different services and creating complex spreadsheets. Unless you’re really competitive Keywords behind, you do not need all that.

If, for example, you decide to simply take into account the Authority’s domain, write the metric of the top 10 results of all your keywords and see which of them can be comparatively easier to position.

You can learn more about some metrics like Mobile Device Usage in the article “21 Metrics for Monitoring SEO Health

SEO on Page

The next step is to optimize your SEO on Page for the keywords you’ve chosen position. This is an important step, but no need to complicate too much.

In the “Roadmap to Improve Your SEO” you have everything you need to make a right on Page SEO. Remember that this optimization must be done for each page using the keywords you want to position on each.

Content Marketing & Promotion

Once you have created your content, you do not sit around waiting for your visitors: promote your items. In the same way that you have very little chance of getting a job if not actively looking, users must know the existence of your items in order to access them.

I recommend you spend more time promoting content and understand its value. If it works in your niche, plus visitors also get backlinks.

Read my article on “Blog Marketing Factors to Improve Your Blog Traffic” to know where to start. I hope that after reading it, understand that it is necessary to promote your content and make this action a habit.

5 Actionable Guest Blogging Tips and Tricks to Follow In 2014


5 Actionable Guest Blogging Tips and Tricks to Follow In 2014

Guest Blogging Tip #1: Choose potential sites carefully

However you’re choosing potential sites to host your guest post, you need to spend some identifying them.

Take a look around the sites and work out whether there’s any interaction between the sites and its readers. Usually this is by way of comments and you need to check a few pages to see whether or not the comments are helpful and contribute to the post made.

It also helps if the owner and the guest poster answer any question or points raised in the comments.

Guest Blogging Tip #2: Lurk for a While

Much the same as you would do in a forum, go back to the site over the next few days and get better taste for it.

This does involve time – there’s no shortcut for that – but can make all the difference between finding a good sites or not.

Much like you wouldn’t spend time in a forum if you where the only one posting there, the same applies to sites where you are considering submitting a guest post.

Guest Blogging Tip #3: Contribute

Once you have got a feel for the site, the next step is to contribute to it.

That means adding your helpful comments to some of the posts.

Keep a note of when you have placed a comments and how long it takes to approve.

Sites that automatically approve comments are unlikely to have the kind of quality control standards that you’re going to need to make it worth your while submitting post.

Guest Blogging Tip #4: Check out the Guest Posting Guidelines

Sites that regularly accept guest posts usually have a page that tells you want they expect and how to send in your proposed post.

Some will be happy with just a title and some points of what you’re likely to cover. Other will prefer the complete article. It varies (remember, there are humans involved in this!)

Once you have read the guidelines, you have ready to submit either the full article or an outline. Which leads us on the final step:

Guest Blogging Tip #5: Write your guest post

This is maybe the easiest part of the process, assuming that you are already happy writing posts for your own sites and article sites or that you have created guest posts already.

Follow the guidelines for you chosen site including writing style and length of the guest post.

Make sure that you don’t pad out the post just to meet a word count – this should be amongst your best work, not some run of the mill stuff, as its showcase you.

The double check your proposed guests post for spelling and grammar before sending it off and waiting.

How to Use The Google Disavow Tools to Keep Your Site Up-To-Date: An Overview


The Google Disavow Tool was introduced on Tuesday, October 16, 2012. By this tool which allow the webmasters to create a text file containing Url’s which they deem harming their Google rankings and it allows webmaster to upload this file containing these Url’s so that Google can remove them from your back-link profile and also take those suggestion within that file into consideration for when they rank the keywords your website maybe targeting.

You will find the links you need by proceeding to Google Webmaster Tools and choose your site:

webmaster-tools-select-your-site

Select Traffic > Links to Your Website

webmaster-tools-links-to-your-site

Select Traffic > Links to Your Site > More

webmaster-tools-links-to-your-site-more

Select “Download Latest Links”

Export to .CSV or Google Docs

Now some of them may you know jump at you as to, you know what, I didn’t create this backlink and it is definitely not form related theme or niche, and it is spam. Meaning, let’s say you’ve got and online business that’s focused in selling’s kids toys for example, and if you got backlinks you know plenty of them, and you didn’t create, and it comes from perhaps adult sites, and surely we can then perhaps say that’s a spam ok, that’s a spam link coming pointing back to your website, which surely will hurt your Google Ranking. But please take Google advice as to be very cautious, when you start creating this file and suggesting Urls because there are many factors that go into determining spam as far as backlink and websites and this stuff is concerned, so a lot of thought must be given before you start using this tool.

Now the text file that you should create simply you can name it anything you want as long as you have the file extension dot text. So that you do is simply determine the backlinks which you deem and you are hundred percent sites its spam. Once you that, the text file are very simple open your notepad up and simply create it.

Now if you put a hash tag and whatever comes afterwards on that line is considered as a comment. Therefore that is ignored for the tool itself, but surely it’s good for your own reference but also people who will see that file, people form Google when they look at that they say hmm. You know what there a comment there is for us to read further information.

Because Google wants to make their own life easy because they know a lot of people will be creating file and sending it to them. And if they made a promise and if they made a tool available, then they have to take care of that side, because they are in customer business.

Video – Matt Cutts On What Are The Most Common Mistakes You See From People Using The “Disavow Links” Tool?

Therefore they want you to take the actions first, most often that may resolve the issue. But if not, then this tool for it. And the keywords there domain colon and whatever domain that you have identified as spam, so if you were to you know use this option and this keywords, domain colon and whatever the URL, that basically saying ok you know what, I got one thousand links coming from this spam website and I want every single one of them to be ignore including the deeper links, so the whole domain will be ignored here. And on this example here, you can if you choose select individual pages from a specific domain, so you can choose that option as well, so it gives you and ability to you know if you got one thousand links creating a file with one thousand links on it is not smart, because if you around say you know what I got one thousand links coming from this particular domain, then perhaps you know disallowing the whole domain entirely is a better option.

Google Disavow Tool

So, but before you head out to this link to suggest that file to Google Disavow Tool, please bear in mind that this tool is like a loaded gun given to a child, meaning, not everyone will be able to determine what a backlinks whit no value is, there is a lot of webmaster out there, as you can see, there is comment that I got from Google blog itself, it’s saying thank you Google, for making this great Disavow Tool available for us. Because now we can disavow links coming from some articles websites and so on. You know something it may be easy to determine a spam link, but if it’s coming from like what I said, like adult site to website that who sells kids, surely there is major conflict there, so therefore anyone can say, you know what, I don’t really wan backlinks coming from adult site when I’m selling kids and so on.

But when we start looking at this example, you know when I look at it, I know for affect there is misinformation here. And I know in my heart whoever wrote this comment, is making a fatal mistake when they use this tool, because especially when it comes to article, you know if you created articles that has value to your created articles that has value to your potential customer, and if some article directory took the time to publish that article on their site that may not be spam.

Now if you know in your heart of hearts and if you worked with seo services provider who didn’t follow Google Guidelines, and if they turned around created articles that is spammy, and has no customer value to the reader, then this example may be ok.

Bottom Line

But what I’m saying is it takes a lot of ranking factors in determining spam, there are so many factors actually, and so it’s not easy for the untrained eye to determine what backlink with no vale in this example is. A lot of people who go to official blog of Google and see stuff like that, they may turn around and use tool at their will. So be very very very thoughtful, get another opinions and who follows Google Guidelines and understand this stuff, that’s my best advice to you.
