You’ve probably heard that you need to improve the SEO of your blog to get more visibility in search engines. This means optimizing it for search engines.
If you have a blog that generates new and unique content, you have a better chance of getting thousands of blogs linking to you and generating more traffic, but there are other ways of accomplishing this and one of them is the correct application of SEO.
Here are some SEO tips that can help you achieve greater visibility in search engines.
• Purchase your own domain
Why buy your own domain if there are many free blogging platforms? Simply because in that way, all the SEO work that you perform, will be for the platform that hosts your blog, when by owning your domain, all the SEO work is only for your domain.
• Choose the right platform
You need to choose a good content management system. One of the most recommended is WordPress, which offers many plugins that help optimize each of the items, and offers friendly URLs.
• Choose a specific topic and diversify it into categories
Decide what will be the main theme of your blog and categorize your content to have everything well organized.
• Install Google Analytics code on your blog
This lets you know where your visitors are coming from and how to improve so you can get more of these visits.
• Register your blog in Google Webmaster Tools
Signing up in a Google Webmaster account lets you control what goes well or not with your blog.
• Write short titles, characters must not exceed 67-70
Simply do a Google search to see the number of characters that the search engine reads; there is no use in writing a longer headline.
