7 Ways to Write A Search Engine Optimized Blog Post

In this blog post, I'm going to teach you a simple method on how to write a SEO optimized post on your blog. I'm going to make it very simple, and it will help you a lot if you're a beginner in blogging.

If you're an experienced blogger, this info might not be new to you, as you might already been implementing SEO strategies to your blog. Nevertheless, enjoy reading this post too.


 

I used a very simple plan to SEO optimized my blog posts most of the time, and I can say I've been getting great results from my SEO efforts. I got people calling me to ask about my business. I got partnerships through bloggers who found me on Google. So let me share with you what I did.

1. Pick Your Keyword.

You can search for high demand keywords using Google Keyword Tool. Pick keywords that are more targeted instead of general ones. Example of General Keyword = "Compensation Plan". Example of Targeted Keyword = "Best MLM Compensation Plan In The World".

It is easier to rank for keywords that are more targeted than general keywords. The keyword that you have searched and wanted to use will be your main keyword.

2. Put Your Keyword In Your URL Post Permalink.

In every blog post, you'll have to insert your blog post permalink.

For example, I'm using 'seo optimized posts' as my permalink. Put only the main keyword you want to optimize. Try not to put the whole title into as the permalink.

3. Insert Your Main Keyword Into Your Title. in Front As Possible.
Put it at the front, and then create an attention-grabbing blog post title too. For example, "Best MLM Compensation Plan - Where To Find It?"

4. Adding Main Keyword Into Post Content

Include your main keyword in your first 50-100 words.

Then for the rest of the passage, do not mass-spam your main keyword. It is highly recommended that you only add in 2-3 main keywords in your passage. Add one at the beginning, one at the center, and one nearing the end of the post.

* Mass spamming or repetition your main keyword may get your blog post penalized by Google. You don't need a 100 repetition of your main keyword to get ranked by Google.

* Write for Human first, Spiders second. Insert your main keyword appropriately in your post, and make your post readable. Don't write for the sake of getting page ranked, and forget about the real human reading your post.

5. Link your Main Keyword To A URL.

Do link your main keyword in your blog post at least once to a URL. Of course, you would want to link that keyword to a relevant url of yours. But you may also want to link it out to others' urls.

6. Use All-In-One SEO Plugin.

If you're in WordPress, you would have used this plugin called All-In-One SEO, which helped you a lot to rank your blog post in search engines. There are 3 sections you have to fill in.

7. Publish and Ping

Publish your post, and then Ping it using Ping-o-matic to inform search engines about your latest post. They will then send out their 'spiders' to look for your articles.

Ping your every time you publish your blog post too.

Enter Title of your blog post, the URL of your blog post, and RSS feed of your blog.

Then Select all the Ping services, and then Ping It!

That is it!

This is just the basics of writing a SEO Optimized post if you're new to blogging. There are of course many advanced SEO tricks and strategies that can help you optimized your post further. And i will touch on that next time.

6 Simple Steps to Optimize AdSense on Your Blog

AdSense is one of the primary income generators for blogs and websites. Usually you are able to drastically improve your click-through rate and total net by placing the advertisements wisely, by improving the material targeting or by optimizing the ad units directly. Below I will cover the last point, how to optimize the AdSense units with 6 simple tips:

 


1. The three top performing AdSense units are: 336×280 large rectangle, 300×250 inline rectangle and 160×600 wide skyscraper. Think about using those units if possible, but bear in mind that depending on your site design, other formats may be more appropriate for you.

2. The more successful link color is blue. This info is connected with the roots of the Internet where all major sites used to feature blue links.

3. Aside from blue links you are able to also use a link color that matches the pattern of your site (i.e. if you use green links make the AdSense links of the same color). The aim is to make sure that the ad units does fit into your site colors adequately.

4. As a general rule of thumb, blend (no border, same background) your AdSense units if your site has a light color scheme and contrast (border, contrasting background) the units if you're using a dark color scheme

5. If the ad units are based within the content you should avoid using borders while ad units outside of the content can use borders to call attention.

6. If your site has mainly repeat visitors (like Forums) you are able to rotate the background color of the ad units to cut back advertisement

5 Tips to Be Successful in Blogging

If you are planning to advertise on your blog, you probably already heard about AdSense. It's the biggest online market for internet bloggers. Most individuals who advertise AdSense on their blog do very well; this is because in most cases the blogger did his research very well. If you would like to maximize your chances of advertising on your blog, I believe these five tips below will help you.



Make sure your blog is generating enough traffic

This is the most crucial factor. If you want to advertise on a blog with success your blog has to have huge traffic, listing it before monetizing that traffic would be a bad decision. You would be able to advertise it, but the money you'd get might be far below the real measure of the site.

Make sure you have good trust rating

Each member on the internet has a trust rating, and most advertisers will check it before placing their bids. In other words the higher your trust rating the higher the chances of success in advertising on your blog. As a result you should take all the actions that will improve your trust rating (e.g., connect your Flippa account with Facebook and
LinkedIn, verify your telephone number and so on).

Don’t hype your description

The more hype you put in your description, the more people will think you're desperate to advertise and that your blog isn't a solid one. Examples of remarks you should avoid include: “Huge potential!”, “A lifetime opportunity!”, “My loss is your gain!”Secondly, don’t hypothesize what the blog could be earning. Some people list blogs that are making $10 per month currently, and they go on saying: “This blog has the potential to make $4,000 per month easily!” If you knew this for certain you would not be selling the advertising space for such a low price.

Make sure you respond to every comment

Even if you write a crystal clear description people will still have questions, and they will ask them through the comment section. It's important to answer to every single comment, as this won't only encourage these commenters to want to advertise on your blog, but it will also improve the overall credibility.

Have a genuine reason for advertising

One of the first things people will ask you is why you are advertising? If there is no plausible reason, they will rightly assume that the blog is going downhill, and that you want to get rid of it before it becomes worthless. In fact it would be a good idea to include the reason for advertising. You definitely need to find one that fits with your blog, and doesn’t annoy your readers with ads that have nothing to do with you blog.

Revenue comes from Adsense, Infolinks, Affiliatelight, sponsored ad banners, Theme customizations. 


this-blog-is-for-sale


Oracleblogger is the first site I started my blogging with and thus it has some emotional value to me. That was the main reason I didn't sell it last year when it was at its highest peak of revenue and traffic generation. 

In the beginning I started the blog as www. howtocreatetrafficpullingblog.blogspot.com, a name that still pulls in traffic because it is a keyword of its own and with this keyword the blog ranks first amongst 19,700,000.

The main sources of revenue are AdSense, Infolinks, Affiliatelight, sponsored ads, blog/template customizations.

It has got user base in Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Stumbleupon, and Linkedin which are the main medium of promotion. It also has a user base in forums like Nairaland.com, Webproworld.com, Forums.seochat.com and Adsenseforums.net.

Owing to my busy work as a Pastor I am unable to do the necessary promotions and updates of my blog. Though I have published around 947 articles in this blog, I am able to achieve this because whenever I am free I upload and schedule the post on autoposting and this is one feature I love about Blogger. I have already schedule articles to be autoposted till Jan. 2015.

Without updating the site for 1 month I got 600-800 daily unique visits for 30 days and on the day of updating it shoots to 1000-1200 pageviews then recedes back to 600-800 within 3-5 days.

Cost of Maintenance:

1) Hosting – free by Blogger.com
2) Domain - 12$ / year
3) Registrar – Godaddy

What will You Get if you buy Oracleblogger ?

1) Ownership of Domain Name oracleblogger.com (Great Brand Name)
2) Facebook Fan page - 9600+ (https://www.facebook.com/obctips)
3) Twitter Fn page - 8000+ (https://twitter.com/ngobless)
4) Full Authority over my High Quality over 940 articles
5) Full Authority over all the userbased forums listed above

Why I am Selling?

I started this blog when I was a business man, later I became a part time Pastor in my local Church, and now I am going full time into Pastoring so I don’t think I can cope; as you well know, the two careers are time consuming.

How to be Successful in MLM Using Social Media

More and more MLM independent business owners are using social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and YouTube to connect with others. To help you get the most out of your social media efforts here are some best practices examples developed by a reputable MLM company within the industry.

how-to-succeed-in-mlm 

1. Be transparent, authentic, and honest at all times. Those that mislead or make false claims are being dishonest at best and doing something illegal at worst. This kind of behavior can jeopardize their reputation as well as the company they are a distributor of. On the flip side, if you are open an honest you are apt to build a loyal following.

2. Be relevant and credible. Add value by writing messages and posts that are relevant to the people you are speaking with. I mean demonstrate your value by sharing knowledge. Avoid obvious product promotions which would be considered spamming.

3. Let people see you in a professional context and connect a face with your post. A photograph of yourself is recommended. Avoid using brand images and logos as this may be in violation of the rules of the MLM Company you are associated with.

Using your full name to name your page is recommended. Using MLM company logos may be in violation of MLM company conduct rules.

4. Prospecting for the business opportunity.
When an online friend shows interest in the business opportunity, acknowledge their interest and take the conversation offline. Contact them privately.

5. Prospecting for customers. Apply the same principles as for prospecting for business partners. Take the conversation offline.

6. Business and product claims. Business and product claims are not permitted on Social sites by some MLM Companies. However, sharing your personal experiences with the products you promote is acceptable and encouraged.

7. Privacy settings. Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter allow you to manage your privacy setting. It is recommended that you should only allow your friends and colleagues to view your profile, photos, feeds and updates. Keep in mind that tweets and posts should not be solicitous in nature.

8. Cross-lining.
You may run across people in your social media experience who are in associated with a different company or a different line of sponsorship within the same company. If this occurs, do not use social media to argue or engage them in a long discussion. You both want to achieve success but you may just be taking different paths.

9. Reputation. The social media sites are a good place to establish reputation and to make friends. Do this by offering value and following the best practices stated above.

How to Create a Blog That Generates Income

Creating a money making blog requires a number of items to consider before you build your blog. One of the first items to consider before you build your blog is to decide on which niche or keyword you intend to focus on. It's always best to find keywords or niches with low competition and high search results. You can find the competition statistics using the Google keyword tool. Keep in mind that even the Google keyword tool is not always 100% correct.

Create-a-Blog-That-Makes-Money


So what you want to do is find a niche that you are interested in. Say for instance you are interested in creating money making blog, you would do a search with the Google keyword tool and add the keyword creating money making blog, to this search tool. The search tool will then pull up a number of different keywords that are related to creating money making blog, . What I like to do is to go through the list and see which keywords have at least 2000 people searching that keyword per month. 

Then take that keyword and add it to the Google search bar with quotation marks. That will give you an indication of how many websites are focused on that keyword. You want to stay below 30,000 as the number of competitive sites that you will try to rank against. Then go back to the Google keyword tool and look at the drop down box where it says CPC; CPC stands for cost per click. I like to have a cost per click of at least one or two dollars but the higher the number the better.

Once you've found your keyword with low competition and high search, then you will want to create a Blogger blog with that keyword as the URL and title of the blog. So what I do is I go to Godaddy.com and I look for a URL with that keyword in it. If I can't find a URL with just that keyword I will add the word review or site to it so that I can have a URL with the keyword within it. So for example the URL would be creating money making blog.com, as an example.

So now I have my URL and I am ready to build my first Blogger blog. So go to Blogger.com. Give the Blogger blog the title of your keyword and in our case it would be mountain biking review. Once your Blogger blog is built and your title is in your Blogger blog go ahead and create a post with creating money making blog, as the main subject. 

Every day from here on you should place at least one post about creating money making blog, in your blog. It will take roughly 2 to 3 months before you will start seeing traffic to your Blogger blog. You can monetize your blog with either AdSense or affiliate programs and before long you will be making some money and the more post you create the more money you will be making.

Revealed 7 tips for Getting Return Traffic

Everyone makes mistakes. Your topics may not be spot on, your content may not be exactly correct or your key words may not be the ideal ones for your topic. Those things you can change and update and make it right. If your content is fresh and new, and your ideas are your own then people do want to read it.


Revealed- tips- for- Getting- Return- Traffic

A few mistakes that people make while building their blogs and websites that will prevent you from getting the readers that you want or keep them from wanting to come back to view your fresh content are:
 

Making your site too close to another one 

If you see a site that is doing well, you're inclined to emulate it, but the truth is that it's been there longer, has more traffic and probably is doing it better because its original. Get your own content ideas. Don't repeat what someone else said in another way. All you're doing is adding content to the site that is already out there and able to be viewed. Say it your own way. Make it easy and simple to understand and offer perhaps that same type of content in your own words.
 

Don't Make Endless Posts 

To get readers coming back and actually reading your text is the trick. Consider your own feelings when it comes to reading. Even the most avid reader won't' want to read a page of text that is miles long. Inject photos between the paragraphs; break up the text with photos or headers to prevent them from seeming like endless tomes that you simply can't get through. Keep your posts under 600 words if you're offering instructions. Make them bulleted lists or line items, as opposed to chunks of text.
 

Not Offering What the Title Advertises 

The surest way to lose readers and keep them from coming back is to have content that isn't related to your title or key words. They are interested in that topic or they would not have searched it. Make sure that you deliver on what the title promises and give them the content they came looking for. If you do, most people will read through to the end and bookmark your site as a good source of information.
 

Letting your Content Go Stale 

Keep your content fresh. Particularly if your blog has dates on the articles, make sure that you add something new weekly so that you hold the interest of your readers. They will get used to visiting to see what's new on the site if you update regularly. Likewise, if you don't update regularly they will get used to visiting another site for their fresh ideas.
 

Hiding Your Content Behind Endless Advertisements

If you're a content site, give them content, but give them content that is not always laden with advertising. Advertising is a fine thing but do it well so that people can view the content unfettered. Stats show us that users hate popups and if your content is covered by a pop out ad that is restricting their view, they aren't going to click that ad for the most part, and they are going to click the x that takes them out of your site and into someone else's.
 

Use advertising in a smart way 

Make it look clean and appealing. You do need to advertise your product to make money but it can be done in a classy way, so that the users aren't restricted in their reading and actually are inclined to click your ads and see what you have to offer.

Increasing blog traffic can be done in any number of ways, but getting people to read your text and come back to view it over again means that you have to have something there that the other blogs about your topic don't have. Keep your content fresh and your site welcoming.

The reader wants a reason to view your content through to the end. Give them that reason. Also don't forget to offer them an RSS button so they can sign up to view updates to your site.

Chances are if you do that, and you update regularly, the readers who find you will return to see what's up on your site every few days - this is free traffic to your blog. The increase in readers will happen naturally, as they offer your site to friends and people realize that you have a lot to offer them.

8 Reasons You Must Check and Remove Broken Links in Your Blog

In the internet language, a broken link is a hyperlink that is not functioning or a dead link as we can simply call it. It is just a link that points to a page that does no longer exist, and webmasters who are regularly in the process of creating contents daily, cannot avoid this type of link.


Webmasters who blog about news and make press releases usually experience this situation, because news will no longer be news after some time. So they say that, often, broken links cannot be avoided.

Why you need to be on the lookout for broken links and why you have to pay attention is of utmost consideration. A link to your website or blog that is no longer available may have serious indications, or it may lead to the conclusion of having a poorly managed website.

1• Broken links are bad experiences of users and give a bad impression, which is not good for your side if you have those broken links. No longer functioning links make the site no longer user friendly, and you have to avoid this.

2• Broken links are conditions where you will lose visitors and prospective sales. Visitors will also have no links to other pages within your website.

3• Your site will also lead to being no longer search engine friendly because search engine spiders will not be able to follow your links. Crawling ability will stop at the broken link.

4•
Impressions of not being a good publisher or not effectively managing your site cannot be avoided in this situation. Thus, there is need for being constantly on the lookout for this to happen.

And if you encounter this situation with your links you have to seriously consider and analyze what causes it. Broken links can be caused by any reason like the following:

5• The website has expired because you have purposely let it expire. You may want to create another domain or have acquired another that has already a name in itself.

6• You may have renamed this page to another and no proper redirection was done. Or you may have moved to another site without proper notification or redirection.

7• You may have made changes in the structure of your page, a proper redirection of users have to done in this situation.

8• The linked page may only be temporary, like contents of news articles which are no longer sustaining because of no longer being newsworthy. Closer attention to these things has to be done.

Finding broken links can be done or your website by using tools that are widely available. With these tools you need only to enter the URL of your site and results will roll out for you to have through analysis, and this process has to be done regularly.

4 Simple Tips to Market Your Mobile App

The market for mobile applications has significantly increased in recent years. With the advent of various smart phones, most notably, the iPhone, the demand for different kinds of applications has skyrocketed, giving app developers a venue to market their applications to a wider demographic. Mobile app marketing is a competitive industry, with more than 140,000 applications available for the iPhone alone; it can be difficult to compete.


Now that stronger and more efficient phones have been created that can handle applications for just about any purpose, application developers have started creating application after application to cater to the increasing need for useful and up-to-date apps designed for just about any need out there. With hundreds of thousands of mobile applications all demanding for consumer attention, how does one compete? 

There are so many mobile app developers out there but few actually make it. This is because other developers have more access to media coverage than others. Fortunately, there are some ways you can employ to come up with a good mobile app marketing strategy that would allow you to find your place in the spotlight. Below are some simple tips you can employ to advance your cause:
 

Offer something different

There are so many developers out there who design applications just for the purpose of being able to make one. The number of applications out in the market is very overwhelming but this does not mean that there is no space for something new and unique. One of the best mobile apps marketing strategies you can employ is to make sure what you have to offer is not something ripped off from an existing application. While it can be difficult to create an entirely new product, this does not mean that you cannot take something old and give it a little twist. You can take an existing product and reinvent it into something that would offer more use to consumers.

If you cannot come up with something entirely unique, then the least you can do is create something out of an existing application to make it worthy of your consumers’ attention. Even if you already have a concept in mind or if you have already designed an app, it is still important to ensure that it has all the makings of an app that would stand out from the rest. You cannot expect a mobile app marketing strategy to work if you don't have anything new to offer.
 

Make use of social networking sites and blogs to get noticed

Target on sites like Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook and keep in mind that the more people talk about your app, the greater you chances for success. One useful mobile app marketing strategy to employ is to make sure that people would want to talk about you. Twitter is a useful venue for this especially with the number of users in the site. If people talk about your app on twitter, you have automatic access to millions of users all over the world.

Blogs are also a good option. The more popular your app is in social networking sites, the higher you chances of being blogged about. Once you attract the attention of the top review bloggers, you are guaranteed to hit the jackpot soon. When people look for apps online, they usually look for reviews written about these products to find out how useful they are. If you attract the attention of top bloggers, they can do the mobile app marketing for you.
 

Take advantage of hype

A lot of products sell primarily on hype. If you let more people know about your app even before it is released, you can generate more attention and once it is launched, you can watch you sales counter go up like never before. However, for this mobile app marketing strategy to work, you have to make sure that your app is good enough to deserve the hype or you will end up failing. If you know for sure that you have a good enough products to deserve the attention, then you shouldn't have to worry about anything, as your product should be able to speak for itself.
 

Focus your attention on the launch

A good mobile app marketing strategy is to launch big. If you want to earn a lot at the onset, then you have to make your launch as big as you can. Make sure that your launch reaches newsletters, blogs, social networking sites and other websites. You can do this by writing blog posts with all the necessary hype and get as many people to help you out. If you know that your product is worth something, and then you only have to worry about getting it known, afterwards the app should be able to market itself.
