SEO is short for Search Engine Optimization. It is a strategy used to increase the amount of visitors that visit you website by obtaining a high placement on search engines such as Google, Bing or Yahoo.
SEO Friendly Titles—Keep blog titles SEO (Search Engine Optimization) friendly by making each title 64 characters or less.
Use SEO Keywords—After you write your rough draft, use Google AdWords Keyword Tool to find what key words or phrases in your blog post have the highest Global Monthly Search Volume. If you need to change a word to a similar word that is more search friendly, by all means do it. Use those keywords as your tags on your blog as well.
Use a SEO Plug-in—An example is All in One SEO Pack, which is available on WordPress and is programmed to optimize your blog.
Use SEO Tags—Tags are used by search engines to index content on websites. Originally websites used mostly hidden keywords to get the highest ranking from search engines, but that no longer works. Search engines have improved their algorithms to ignore these hidden keywords. Tags are currently a great method for Search Engine Optimization. Tags are keywords for each blog post you create. They should be short two or three word phrases. Using tags is the best way to bring total strangers to your blog. Tags are easy to add to blogs. Look for the “tags” box and put single words or phrases separated by a comma inside the “add” box.
