    Simple SEO Techniques You Should Use

    Whether you are building a new site or working on improving the search rankings of a current site, you need to make sure that you get the basics of SEO completed. There are many so called experts in search engine optimization, but a handful of them simply use automated programs to build backlinks and submit articles. I am not saying link building and article submissions don’t work, but I am pointing out that there is a right way to do it and a wrong way to do it. Getting it done the right way will yield far more superior results for any type of website.

    Right off the bat, you need to open up your website files and look at everything you’ve included in the head section of the code. This applies to titles, keywords, descriptions, robot instructions, index instructions and such. By fixing these minor issues, you can easily be able to boost your website’s search engine presence. The basics of search engine optimization lies in the on-site tweaks that you can make. Use keyword tools to find some of the relevant keywords you can target for each page on your website. Descriptions should be under one hundred and sixty characters and should be rich in keywords.

    The content on your website plays a huge role in the overall SERPs your website experiences. If you want to be able to rank well for a specific keyword, make sure that your content is optimized accordingly. This does not entitle you to stuff keywords several dozen times. The adequate keyword density for any piece of article is about three percent. So, three words per one hundred words would be sufficient. A good rule of thumb when writing content is; try to use the keyword in the first sentence of your article. Avoid repeating yourself in the article and make sure it is something you would consider valuable.

    Now that you’ve completed the on-site optimization, you can move onto the off-site portion of SEO. Off-site SEO optimization is simply everything that you do to boost your rankings, without altering anything on your site. This includes article submissions, link submissions, guest blogging and inter-linking between sites. In order to build quality backlinks, you need to understand that search engines like Google, use relevance as a key factor. Your backlinks should be related to your niche, as you can’t have a auto related link pointing to your baby crib site.

    Being able to build quality backlinks to your site requires a certain level of experience and research. You need to see what other sites in your niche are doing to build links. You can certainly be building links from link directories and article sites, but don’t focus on getting links from irrelevant niche sites. When building links from article sites, you need to remember to use quality unique content rather than articles that have been automatically spun. The things we talked about in this article should be enough to get you started in the right path for better search engine rankings.

    I live to keep the keyword density lower to once or twice every 100 words. In a 500 word article 7-8 times is good otherwise you are feeding the Panda.

    I do not worry about keywords, keyword density, panda, grizzly or salmon.

    I write my blog posts and that is that.

    Just do not want to waste time counting words, phrases, etc.

    I leave all the above to webmasters who have nothing to do but worry about seo, keywords, panda, time of day, and what to drink while posting.

    I agree with you that it's best to write naturally. I don't use a keyword tool. But I can see with the naked idea the density more or less.

    What I think is that a high keyword density or keyword stuffing will lower your keyword score. Rather than repeating the keywords too many times, it's best to use synonyms. Google uses Latent Semantic Indexing. So, they expect to see related terms and phases.

    I think around 250 words of content is enough to target one keyword with the targeted keyword in an H tag. So, for each additional keyword you want to target there should be an addition 250 words and another H tag.

    If one want to get better SEO results then need to be more focused on three things only. One is quality content, keywords and backlinks. Try to provide useful content to your site, assign suitable titles & keywords which people use more for their query. And try to get more backlinks through those keywords so this way you can get more traffic through the backlinks, can get better keyword position and also can get top position in the search results.

    Very informative post. I would like to share something here. Don't design your site for search engine, consider your targeted audience in mind and build your website. User experience plays a major role in SEO nowadays. If you site provide more user experience then there is a chance for ranking high in search engines.

    That's indeed and interesting way you could help the process and also make it a point that the content could be readable without having the impression of having it written with the purpose of some promotion, on the whole making it be an informative one.
