•November 20, 2007 • Leave a Comment

Did you know that Google does more searches than all other search engines combined?  The talented Richmond Virginia SEO (BloomSEO) posted a great chart here:  Search Engine Optimization for Google.

 Quite a lead.  You always hear the big guys fear the “kid working out of his garage with the next great idea” — I hope that kid get’s a few billion in funding to go along with that idea.  Competing in the search engine industry has never been tougher.

Lead with good content.
My number one tip for SEO? Provide frequently updated content that people want to read. Incoming links are key and if you can provide content that people will read and get something out of, there is a good chance they will link to that content.

Research your keywords.
You can use a Keyword Suggestion Tool or simply put yourself in the mindset of your target audience. Learn which terms people will search with and get those into your content and meta information.

Quick Tips for: Optimizing your Blog

Linking
Don’t be a link Nazi. Make sure to link out to other related websites within your content; it can only help with your search engine rankings. By linking out, those sites might link back or include your blog in their blogroll. The more related incoming links you have, the higher you should rank on the search engines.

Pinging
If you want to increase your traffic you have to ping the blog search engines. You can do this through ping-o-matic or pingoat. If you use FeedBurner they also have a list of blog search engines that you can ping through them. By doing this every time you write a blog post, it will show up on search engines such as Technorati and Icerocket.

•July 22, 2007 • Leave a Comment

Last week, Wikipedia changed their external links to all use the microformat “nofollow” so that all outbound links carry no search engine optimization weight. So far it appears to be the right thing to do. So my question is… should Digg do the same thing to prevent spam like the MarketWire spam? This could hurt the number of submissions and the number of users….
