Once you decide to plunge into the blogging world “for real” you start finding that like many businesses and fields there is a very technical side to it. Words like Alexa Rank, Page Rank, SEO, Analytics and more start flying around.
Today I’m going to talk a little about SEO. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization it’s pretty complex but it boils down to getting your blog/website to the point that it will be pulled up during search engine searches. If you’re like 99.9% of the world you probably only look through the first couple pages of results (if that) when you are searching for something online. As a blogger or website owner your long time goal would be to eventually wind up on the front page of a search. Building credible seo comes through a variety of different ways including keywords, relevant content, and quality backlinks. If you go to the Blog Training Here and scroll down to the bottom of the screen you will see 2 webinars that talk a lot about SEO and why it is important–they’re very good and I’d highly recommend watching them if you’re blogging for a business or looking at getting PR friendly with your blog!
If you are looking to try and increase your SEO quickly there are options available where you can actually purchase Affordable SEO. Places like SEOClerks offers you the chance to get everything from quality backlinks to a certain amount of new Twitter followers. If you are looking to make some money from providing SEO and increasing followers this is also a great site to put offers up on. I just signed up and put up a sponsored tweet offer. It was super easy and I’m excited to see how much money I’ll make from it!
