Ray Of Light On Some Rules Of Website Optimization

Keys to Rapid Search Engine Optimization Success

Search engine optimization is definitely one of the top ways to drive a deluge of free traffic to your website. Essentially, you are leveraging on the massive visitor numbers of search engines and funneling them directly to your website. It’s no secret that the search engines are widely visited by everyone who is online.
Here are the 4 keys to rapid search engine optimization success:

1. Adopt a 2-prong approach to SEO. In other words, you’ve got to do on-site optimization as well as off-site optimization. You can’t just do one or the other. The more important of the two is off-site optimization. Work to get high quality (preferably one-way) backlinks to your site.

2. Aim to achieve an effective keyword density of 3% to 6% at the very least. Choose a keyword you are targeting for high rankings on the search engines and use it at least a few times throughout your page to achieve a respectable keyword density that will shoot you up the rankings.

3. Use the meta tags as part of the on-site optimization process. Use these tags: the title, description and keywords tags. Add in your main keywords to these tags to really supercharge your SEO efforts and get the search engine spiders to recognize your site.

4. Use specialized software such as SEO Elite to see what your competition is doing with regards to their SEO and linking activities. This gives you a “one-up” over the competition. You’ll be able to see exactly what it is they are doing to achieve such high rankings!

SEO – Tips For Writing Persuasive Keyword Copy

The key to writing persuasive keyword copy is to find that happy medium between pleasing the search engines and pleasing your readers. There are some basic rules of thumb that you can stick to as you attempt to accomplish this goal. In fact writing search engine and people friendly copy is as easy as chatting to a good friend.

First of all don’t cram your copy with keywords. Only use about three different keywords or keyword phrases per page. Keyword phrases are more effective than single words as people tend to type phrases, not single words into search engine boxes.

Don’t write less than 250 words in any one section of your website. It is possible for a search engine optimized article to be too short. Although when it comes to copy for search engine optimization it is important to be as concise and to the point as possible.

Try to write in grade six level conversational language. Don’t try to impress search engines or readers with your lofty knowledge of rare vocabulary. If you are writing these yourself, then try writing the way you talk and then incorporating the keywords into the copy after you have chatted to your readers on paper.

You know you are writing good SEO copy if no sentence looks like it was constructed to especially accommodate the keyword. You can tell these types of sentences because nobody can understand them. Even if the search engine spiders find them friendly, difficult to read content is only going to have your visitor moving on to another site (possibly your competitor’s) after they decide that your writing doesn’t make any sense at all. Writing in a natural but informed tone that is not too structured or crammed with keywords is the best approach to creating excellent SEO copy.
