Data Log 01/21/2013

Psst! Want to be noticed by search engines? I thought so! If you’re putting up a site or a blog, you want it to become popular with search engines. When the search engines like it, you’re instantly going to see more traffic, making any site more successful.

That’s why we’re going to share our amazing banana pancake secret of success with you… and more!

Here are Some of Our Favorite SEO Tips to Make Your Website Content Irresistible

Tip #1.

Don’t shy away from using headlines. These can be helpful not only to get the reader’s attention but also to be search engine friendly. Another tip: add your keyword(s) to the headline – as we’ve done with “content” – to our headline. Use several headlines in your article if you can.

Tip #2.

Articles can be short & sweet but still pack a nice punch. If you don’t like to write, you’re going to be pleased to know that you only need about 250 words to make a great impact SEO-wise. If you have more to say, well, we’re not going to stop you! But articles should reach that minimum word count.

Tip #3.

Make your articles top-heavy. You do this in two ways: by using most of your keywords towards the top of your article – but also by getting right to the point of your article immediately. Don’t fuss around and chatter on about your day. SEO-wise, you want to get right to the heart of the matter.

Tip #4.

URLs rule. They truly do. Let’s say you write an article about how much you love banana pancakes and that you can make the most amazing ones anyone has ever had. Well, that’s an article banana pancake eaters are going to want to find! Give the URL a name like “amazing-banana-pancakes” or even “cooked-amazing-banana-pancakes.” Don’t call it “I-ate-amazing-banana-pancakes-with-friends-this-weekend-and-you-didn’t.” SEO-wise, the first two URLs will have the best keywords for anyone looking to make banana pancakes, hoping to learn more about how to do this, perhaps even finding a great recipe.

Tip #5.

Keep keywords to 1-2%. This is keyword density and the best way to understand this ratio is to add your keyword about 1 to every 100 words. Try to write naturally, and then go back and add or remove some of your keywords as needed. Yes, you actually CAN have too many keywords!


Tip #6.

Looks matter, include an image. When someone comes to visit your site and you are talking about these delicious banana pancakes that you’ve made you are making their mouth water. Mmmmm, they are thinking. But what’s going to have a great impact on this post/article? An image of yummy banana pancakes of course! Make sure the image alt tag has your keywords included in it, and then add an image description too.

Well, that’s enough to get you started to write great SEO content. But we’ve spent so much time talking about banana pancakes that we’re going to include My Website Spot‘s favorite recipe, so you can enjoy a nice, tall, fluffy stack before you get to writing!
