Search engine optimization (SEO) is a very big topic in online marketing, there are so many courses, training and information out there on this topic. The information can be so intimidating which can easily make newbies uninterested in it. Actually on page and off page SEO can help your blog’s ranking on SERP (search engine result page) BUT your main focus should be on writing informative article that solves a problem. When your article is very interesting and informative, your visitors will share it on their social media profiles. It can simply go viral which in turn gives you backlinks and more visitors. In this article I will be showing you my white hat SEO routines for getting higher rankings on google search engine.
IMT Website Submitter
After creating any new website or blog I use this tool to submit the URL to 1,800+ different places. This tool submits your website to website directories that create profiles like “who is”, “about us”, “website statistics”. It also notify the search engine to crawl your website and make it’s online presence strong. You will also get some quality backlinks too.
This is very important, google favors blogs that publish new articles steadily. Add new articles to your blog at least on monthly basis. Articles with more than 1000 words rank faster than articles with smaller words. So to outrank your competitor’s article you might have to add more content, value and information to your article.
This method still works for me although some online marketers are saying that it is obsolete. I use a free software called Fast Directory Submitter for accomplishing this task. The software comes with some high page ranked directories. All you have to do is to add your website with a description and the software will submit it to those directories.
Google will start taking your blog very serious when your social media presence is powerful. Create social media accounts on
Add your blog’s URL on the profile or bio setting of these accounts. Your website ranking will increase by doing this since all these social media websites have PR9 and will pass the juice to your link.
Most forums allow the signature feature which appears beneath your post on any thread. Join forums that are related to your blog’s niche and then add your URL on your bio settings and signature. Browse around the forum and leave comments on topics that are related to your interest.
Create videos and publish on YouTube and Vimeo make sure you add your blog’s URL in the description of the video. You can download any free screen recording software for this or use powerpoint. The video must not be of top quality, all you want is to get backlink to your website.
Document Sharing Website
This method is one of my favorite, you can easily use this method to out rank most of your competitors. This method involves uploading your pdf files to the file sharing websites. All you have to do is to convert one of your articles into a pdf and upload on these websites below. Make sure that your website URL is linked somewhere in the pdf and also in the file description.
These document sharing websites have Dofollow link attributes meaning they allow search engine bots to follow links and pass on link juice. If you master this method then you can easily render SEO services and rank business websites in your locality:
You will start seeing the effects of this particular method just after a week and google will keep on sending you more traffic as your blog grows.
This might take time to achieve but you can do it one after the other. You don’t need to complete it within a day, google takes time to crawl all these links and reciprocate with higher ranking. All you have to do is to write at least 350 unique words with your blog’s link in the article and then publish it on the Web 2 websites below. Use unique article for each of the web 2 websites.
I use only Qoura for this method, just create an account there and add your website at your profile settings. After that comment on some questions that are related to your interest.
A business citation is a mentioning of the name, address, and email of your business online. It helps users as well as search engines to find your business and your products and services online. Add your business site to any of the 5 Business Citation Sites.These gets automatically submitted to google.
Blog Aggregator Websites
Submitting your content to aggregators is one of best ways to promote your website. You will also get a high quality backlink from the site. Make sure that your content is unique and interesting to get better results in shot time span. Content is the king here the interesting the content is the better you will get noticed. Some of the aggregators include.
This website allows you to add some quality content related to what your niche is in. All you have to do is to visit the website, go to the top search bar and put in your website name/brand name. If it is available then you can go on and write an article about your blog or website with your URL in it and publish. You will get a dofollow backlink to your blog after doing this.
These backlinks will increase your website’s search engine ranking position and then make your blog’s visitors to increase. The more visitors to your blog the more income you make. This is a very important aspect of any search engine optimization, backlinks are so powerful. It might be so time demanding but the reward is more encouraging. Never buy backlinks unless you are sure of the seller, some backlinks can cause more harm than good. I prefer you take it slowly and build it yourself, google do penalize websites with spammy, grey hat or black hat types of backlinks. Also stick with white hat practices while building backlink to avail you of long term business.
Ultimately creating high quality content is the best SEO you can ever do. It will take you high on the search engine easily because your visitors will like your post and then share it to different place online.
