10 Simple Techniques for Getting Better SEO Rankings for your Blog

How to Get Better SEO Rankings?

Seo Advice / December 15, 2019

Try using actionable and psychological keywords in your blog post title. You can significantly boost your ranking using keywords like “updated”, “step by step guide” etc.

Though these words themselves have nothing to do with SERP but they will increase your click through rate (CTR) which is also a ranking factor.

Actionable tip 3:

Keep your title tags within 59 characters. Google considers 50-59 characters in displaying on a 512-pixel screen which means an average 55 lettered title tag is optimum. You can read more about it here.

2# Add Keywords To Post and Media

Now that you already have content, I would suggest you to add keywords in a way that does not appear stuffed.

Search engines have become more intuitive and can identify a cheap keyword stuffed article from really valuable ones with related keywords too.

Actionable tips:

  • In an average a 2% of total wording can be used to allocate keywords.
  • For better search engine ranking, place your main keyword within the first 100 words and repeat the same in the conclusion too.
  • For images, try using alt tags that are a source for the search bots to know what your picture is about. Alt tags can dramatically increase your ranking and organic traffic via image search functionality of search engines. Also, try optimizing the image name to something related to the post rather than a random image0001, camcorderimg345 etc. Read complete image optimization guide here.
  • 3# Internal Linking

    Internal linking is one of the safest ways to getting backlinks from your own site. This can also drain some search engine juice on otherwise old posts and eventually help the reader by showing him a related post of value. Confused?

    The link I have on the introduction showing you list of rank checker tools is one of the best examples of internal linking.

  • Link to related posts: You should link to related posts and on the context to your current post. Linking a page on writing skills to a post on architecture will do more harm than good.
  • Do not link like an automated harvester. Do it at a slow and steady pace. Have a proportionate ratio of new and old posts linked. Be sure to add different anchor texts.
  • Do not suddenly increase internal linking to a post that is getting down on SERP. Instead do not link the page loosing ranking. You can try linking to pages that already have the post linked in them.
  • #4 Guest Blogging

    Guest blogging is not dead and will never die. Yes, but one done for SEO is dead long back since 2014.

    You can obviously use guest posts to highlight relevant posts of yours which are in-context. Having a guest post on an authoritative site can boost your blog’s ranking and search engine visibility.

    #5 Blog Commenting

    Which was initially done to interact and build relationships is now a good source of getting visibility. You can search keywordluv and commentluv enabled blogs to leave your desired links.

  • Don’t comment on blogs that are spammy and irrelevant to your niche. This will not only prevent your site from being flagged by Google but also help you reduce the bounce rate that the readers of those blogs would bring to you.
  • Use the commenting trick as soon as you publish an article on the web. This secret trick I follow is revealed as under:
  • After you publish your blog post do a quick Google search on the keyword you are concentrating on. Chances are Google hasn’t crawled on yours yet, so go to the top five (at least) sites that are:

  • related to your topic
  • have still fresh comments flowing in and
  • have commentluv enabled
  • #6 Social Shares

    Though social shares are always a controversial factor of boosting your search engine rankings, they for sure will help you to rank higher on Google. The more the number of social shares, the more is the referral traffic which in return means more authority and ultimately higher rankings. Crazy! Huh?
