SEO – Dominate the search engines for your keyword

dominate

This is really easy stuff so I’ll make it brief and easy to follow.

So you’re looking for good positions on the search engines preferably on the first page and better still, somewhere in the top 5 results.  Well it’s not necessarily as difficult as you may think and on occasions you can get your Blog listed multiple times on the 1st page meaning you can completely dominate that particular search term.

First, consider what search term you would like to be listed on the search engines with? And what expression people will type in to find your blog?  Be realistic though, as nice as it would be, your unlikely to dominate an expression like ‘mobile phones’ with two hours work.

Now create a blog using your desired search term as the title of the blog:

(ie: Wireless Camera Blog)

Now for the longwinded part, you need to create 30/40 keyword related posts for your blog.  You could pay an article writer to do this for you, at maybe $3 article your only talking about $100 or so for all the content your blog will need.  Alternatively, you could do a bit of research and write the content yourself, it may take a bit of time but it’s normally worth the effort and you may learn something about your product while your doing it.

Post three quarters of your articles to to this blog.

The next step of the search engine optimisation process is to get 30/40 back-links, doesn’t really matter how; I often search for other wordpress blogs using the search term below:

‘Leave a Reply’ ‘Name “(required)”‘ ‘Mail (will not be published) “(required)”‘ ‘Website’ + ‘wireless spy camera’

Leave the quotation marks in place and replace ‘wireless spy camera’ with your own target keyword expression.  This search will return a list of wordpress blogs that have some relation to your keyword expression in the post.  Simply leave constructive comments on 50 – 100 blogs, try to make your comments as legitimate as possible… avoid leaving superfluous very delete-able comments like “gr8 post m8″

NOW- sign up with a few blog listing sites such as:

TopBlogArea.com
DigNow.com
topblogging.com
blogcatalog.com
blogdigger.com
mynewblog.com
TopBlogRateDir.com
Blogs.com
Blogifer.com
lsblogs.com
Bloggernow.com
BlogsOnTop.com
Skinny.com

etc… do a bit of research and find as many as you can, there are quite a few out there!

After you’ve set up accounts with the above blog sites (and any more you may wish to add), you need to add a second blog using the Title, (ie: wireless spy camera) in other words keep titles of yours blogs the same or very similar… and in the blog description, use your keyword expression:

“wireless spy camera”…etc…..

Now post the remaining articles to this blog.

Now leave to simmer for anywhere between 3 weeks and two months.  There you have it, you’ll be listed on the 1st page for whatever search term you want! (Within reason of course)

Good huh? I get a lot of traffic with this technique!  It amazes me how something so simple can have such a positive effect!

Anchor text – how to use it and how you would like other sites to backlink to you

anchor_textIt’s first important to understand ‘Anchor text’ and how to use it on your own site and how you would like other sites to use it when linking to you.  ‘Anchor text’ is the word/words on a web page used to attach a hyperlink to. In other words, the phrase or expressions you click when following a link to another web page or website.

wireless camera” is an example where ‘wireless camera’ is what we call the anchor text.

The ‘anchor text’ gives the visitors to your site information about the content of the page behind the link.  Anchor text is important because it informs both human visitors and search engine robots what the target page is all about.

If you use generic expressions like “click here” as your anchor text, you are telling the search engine that the target page is about “click here”. A text link from one site to another should reference what the target page is all about. Search engines read the ‘anchor text’ and make the assumption that if you call the link ‘click here’ the page is all about ‘click here’s’. This is clearly not going to help with the optimization of the page.

Proof of how important anchor text is that it’s possible to get a page listed in the top 10 on Google for a phrase that does not appear in the pages content. In other words, using anchored links from several high ranking third-party sites could push a page to the top of Google for the expression featured in the anchor text even though the page is neither about or features the anchor text expression in its content.

When asking sites to link to you, consider providing the link code for them. If you provide the HTML code so they can simply cut and paste it into their page, you get to choose your own anchor text. An example of the link code you might provide could look something like this:

<a href=”http://www.pakatak.co.uk/camera/camera.htm”>
Wireless Cameras</a>

Mix your text links up! Use different expressions so as to avoid over optimizing any one expression.

Anchor text should be well utilized for your:

  • Incoming links – links from other sites
  • External links – links to other sites
  • Internal links – links on your pages to other pages on your site
  • Site map links – one page that links to every other page on your site
  • Home page links – links on your home page to other pages on your site

Using Keywords in your body text to Create Anchor Text

Try to use important keyword phrases in your page’s body text and link it to relevant target pages within your own site. The paragraph below is an example of how this can be achieved:

_____________________

Wireless cameras are getting smaller and lighter and at the same time wireless camera prices are coming down. The Spy camera and covert camera ranges have seen a steady reduction in cost and at the same time product quality and wireless transmission ranges have increased. Without obstacles our covert cameras will transmit a clear wireless signal up to 100m. Some of the larger Infrared camera units have detachable yagi antennas meaning that wireless transmission distances can be easily increased with high gain antennas. The night vision camera and infrared camera ranges have also seen the same reduction in price but unit sizes have stayed constant to incorporate the Infrared LED’s.

_____________________

This example has been exaggerated but it shows how easy it is to first of all weight the text on your site with your target expressions and on occasions, anchor the text with a link to another area of your website.

Keyword density is used to describe the percentage of keywords to normal text contained on your web page. Keyword density should not generally exceed 20%

Don’t forget that people will also read your anchor text links. Make sure that the words in your anchor text also make sense to your human visitors.
