How SEO Works?

Google has developed automatic algorithms that rank your site.

These indicators include things like backlinks, domain age, traffic, fresh content, etc.

Let’s understand some more about these tips

1. Building Backlinks

A backlink is when a website gets linked with another website.  i.e., when another website links back to our site from their website. Backlinks make huge difference to bring traffic to the website. A website with good rankings sets the site in backlinking process, it itself gives hundreds of rankings.

The best way to build the good backlinks is to write a quality content. It is not only the content Anchor text also matters.

 Anchor text is a clickable text in a hyperlink. This should be relevant to the linking page rather than generic text.

 2.  Installing a Sitemap

By Installing Google Sitemap we can get the full map of posts, pages, archives. This automatically generates the map at small and regular intervals and submits to Google and Bing by itself. To make indexing better it shares the map.

 3. Building Social Media Profile

These days Google is looking into Social Media as an action for article’s authority. If many people are tweeting about particular topic chances are the content written is something really good. Loyal following and good content is the best way to get tweets.

  • Sharing others Content – The more we share others content from their bloggers, chances are they share most of our information.
  • Tweet Big Players – Building a rapport with big players on twitter helps you building a group and someday they will help you. Give now take later.
 4. Mobile Friendly

This is Smart phones world. Most of the time we are with our partner in crime spending hours and hours without noticing the time. Creating a blog which is mobile friendly is like win-win situation for both. According to the Google update Algorithm, mobile friendly sites are ranking high than the non-mobile. Focusing on CSS and themes will be helpful as these may make blog unresponsive.

5. Content

Google whole idea it to provide useful content to its customers. the most important thing to be done SEO is create massively useful content that solves people’s problems. If we are solving issues that people are searching for then it is likely that we are going to get shared on social media and get the ranking in Google.

“Original content” means so much than just blog posts . Simple things to look into

  • Photography
    There are many guides online which talks about why we need original images and photos and how to use them to the best advantage..
  • Videos
    Making tutorials or  videos posts with the webcam builds links and traffic from Youtube and does well on mobile devices.
  • Tools and plugins
    By developing an original tool and installing it on website helps in topping in Google ranks for longer time. Google looks out for the tools and plugins that people can use in their lives.

The whole idea is to build a relationship with your readers by helping them out. This will mean more sharing and faster results on the SERPS (search engine rankings positions).

Other Important points

Apart from these, concentrating on making the theme SEO optimized is necessary. Optimizing the theme helps Google indicators believe and feel that its a trustworthy site. Creating the website with latest techniques, fast in loading and no broken links helps in ranking and works smoothly.

Keyword Research

Researching on what keywords you are trying to rank for and then shortening your URL to match those keywords will be helpful.

Points to remember:
  • Choosing over-specific keywords with no traffic.
  • Choose keywords which do not convert or are not relevant to the business
  • Prefer long-tail keywords, these work much better to avoid competition

Permalinks

Permalinks or URLs play an important role  in optimizing a new website, having unnecessary and unrelated characters in the URLs such as question and punctuation marks, irrelevant numbers might affect how the website is understood by search engines making it hard to crawl and indexed except for trusted websites.

Conclusion

There are many ways to practice to make SEO the best when setting up a new blog these are  the very basics that are compulsory.
