SEO TECHNIQUES 2

Basic SEO introduction was covered in my last post namely,"SEO TECHNIQUES".Now i will give you a few tips as to how you can make your posts search engine optimizable.
Lets see one example and analyse the various techniques for search engine optimizing that topic.Consider that you are writing a post on mp3 players.The following are some techniques that will help you in seoptimising your post.

NOTE:

IN THIS POST I'M CONCENTRATING MAINLY ON KEYWORD OPTIMISATION,SO THE FOLLOWING POINTS APPLY FOR THAT ALONE.


* USE PLURALS

If you pluralize your words, those who search for the singular and the plural words will both find your site.In this example,it is better you write mp3 players rather than mp3 player.


* DIVERSIFY
One word alone will get a few people, but not everyone thinks like you do. Try to get into the mind of someone who would find your site/product useful.Here ,in this case you should include words like mp3 downloads,mp3 songs,etc....in your post.


*AVOID EXCESSIVE REPETITION
Some search engines are beginning to filter out sites that repeat words too much.In general don't repeat the keywords more than 2-5 times

*USE DIFFERENT COMBINATIONS
Not everyone think alike.Some people might have searched the same topic that you wrote about,but,in a different way like "mp3-players,mp3.players,mp 3 players etc....So in order to grab these traffics occasionally use different combinations of the same keyword,sometimes spelling mistakes also works your way(that has happened to me ,i got 12 searches via a mis spellt word).

*USE PHRASES
In a recent study conducted by one of the major search engines, it was revealed that over 65% of all searches made use phrases rather than single words.For example: use the phrases like "best mp3 players in market","cheap mp3 players","mp3 players that you can buy" etc.....


*TARGET NO MORE THAN FOUR KEYWORDS PER PAGE


These are some of the non-technical techniques that you can follow to get better results.I Will be coming up with another post on the technical aspects for SEO soon...

Great series .. We're working to improve search engine traffic, both of us .. Cos' thats the only way we can get traffic.. The social bookmarking sites aren't too helpful..

But then, this kind of traffic is way better, little but sustained. We could get search engine visits for a good post two years after this. Wouldn't that be cool ?

SEO is the way to go.. Bring it on .. Also talk about keyword targeting etc ..
