What to consider when writing for search engine optimization.

Anyone looking to get more visitors and views on a website must know more about SEO. And this SEO(Search Engine Optimization) has got multiple methods of approaching it.

In this post, we want to optimize a website through quality content. What concepts do you use when writing on your blog feed and pages? Well, I will show you how to write for SEO.

How to write for SEO on websites.

Search engines look at quality content when ranking pages but you need to rank your whole website. How can you do that? Just follow these tips.

  • Sentence Length.
  • Choice of words.
  • Paragraph Lenght.
  • Passive voice.
  • Consecutive sentences.
  • Transition words.
  • Subheading distribution.

Sentence Lenght

Some times, writing gets exiting. During that time, even the sentences you write tend to get longer. The one thing you need to know is sentences have got to be short with approximately fifteen words maximum. Keep them short and meaningful.

Choice of words

The choice of words used in your sentences matters somehow in a way that when simple words are used, you will improve readability on your website. You have to use simple but strong words.

Paragraph Length

Just like any other forms of writing, your blog content should be presented in short paragraphs. This will help search engines to easily identify keywords in each paragraph. The length of each paragraph is five to six sentences.

Passive voice

The passive voice has to be maintained to 10%. Try to use sentences which are less passive. This helps to make the written texts appear intonational thus improving. understanding.

Consecutive sentences

Write sentences consecutively to layout content perfectly and make it attracting. Some times, you need to use a variety of sentences for example sentences with; question marks, full stops, exclamation marks, semicolons and full colons.

Transition words

Transition words help to change from one topic to another in between paragraphs. Create an overflow of your content by applying more transitional words. Enable your readers to better understand what you write.

Subheading distribution

Lastly, working upon subheadings is ideal. In a post like this one, subheadings would be most preferably ranked by search engines because that’s what they look at first before crawling the inner content. Always consider writing with subheadings where necessary, following the order of header arrangement.

Let’s talk about link building for SEO.

What No One Tells You About Broken Links- written by Debby Winter.

Quality links for SEO

Have you ever clicked a link just to find a broken page? Or maybe you were taken to a page that didn’t quiet provide the information you were looking for? If you are running a blog or website the quality of your links are key to quality per se, and links will also affect organic rankings in the search engines. It will be clear that both links and content are the most important part of SEO, and we want to take extra care of our links because when broken they have a damaging effect.

Links contain the essence of the internet and as such we should treat them with respect.

It is true that links are the very building blocks of the internet. You may not have quiet realized exactly how important a properly labelled link is until you meditate on the concept for some time. If links are labeled the wrong way they have zero value, or worse, they could even do damage. If you are someone who always tries to link the right way than you probably don’t have to worry, but if you know you have links on your site that have as only purpose to inflate the link juice of one page than you might be in trouble. You are probably aware that this is often done for SEO purposes but it can have awful effects.

Are there other linking factors that affect my ranking?

Yes there are. Search engines know that links are the essential connection on which the internet depends in order to be able to provide you with information. If you provide wrong labels, or in other words if you label your links with improper text, than you may be punished for that. At best the search engines will ignore the link text, but if you run a website that keeps adding irrelevant anchor text than it is likely that you will be dropped by the algorithm. When this happens it is likely easiest to start over from scratch and follow Google best practices for SEO.

Where to start if you are unsure about the quality of your links?

For years now I have been using a free software called Xenu Link Sleuth. It can be downloaded for free from the internet and it will serve to generate detailed error reports that will give you in-depth insight on the situation. The program is especially useful if you run online forums that contain user generated content, or if you allow people to post their link in the comment section of your blog. When time goes by some links may expire or become outdated, and this can as such damage your rankings. If you are not sure how to use the problem or how to fix the links you may wish to consult an SEO expert.

Should I include or remove punctuation at the end of a link?

If you are linking to a website URL you always want to remove the punctuation at the end because it may inadvertently be added which will cause an error. Instead of writing “wordpress.org?” you always want to add a pause and write “wordpress.org ?” Remember, to free a website from error is to optimize it for the search engines. Good spelling and good grammar is important, but when it comes to functionality and SEO you sometimes have to make an exemption.

If everything else fails…

Sometimes someone sends you a link and it just doesn’t work. If you can’t figure out how to fix it then your best chance is to Google the link. If there is a spelling error it is at this point that this will be revealed to you. Also, if you have someone write a guest article you always want to check all the links before posting. Make sure to Google part of it to see if it isn’t duplicate content since this is harmful for your site. Never submit the entire article to article checkers as there are some checkers out there that will copy your article and publish it before you can.

Well folks that’s all, I hope you enjoyed this article on broken links and that you learned something new about the inner mechanics of the internet and SEO. Take care and stay home, it’s nice to know that in uncertain times like this people are reaching out to each other here on WordPress. If you have any questions or if you like a free website audit feel free to contact me.

Warm Regards,

Debby Winter

100….. on Jeonlin Affiliates

Congratulations!

This was my ambition two months ago “to reach 100 follows on this blog” and finally, It has made it. This is why I thank everyone for progressing to this achievement it is you who as made it and I hope and pray for another great one. Thank you very much.

Now, a new goal is being set up.

Best regards to you my beloved friends.

What to do next after placing affiliate links in your website.

‘There is not enough time for work at times so, ‘I am here stranded and do not know what to do next after posting my affiliate marketing product links?’ Here is a little timely scoop up for you.

Time is not our best ally remember.

You very well know that your content posts will not stand alone to generate leads on their own unless you do something positive about them-that is increasing your site’s visibility and it takes some time to do that.

A site that is visible can easily be seen together with it’s content by more people hence more traffic for it.

What should you do then? Think of the possibilities that are there which you will try to get the best as far as commissions are conserned. Those possibilities can be;

  • Sharing your posts to other platforms like social media which is more popular today.
  • Engaging in other blogs, leaving comments & a connection to your website. When you do this,it is easy for other bloggers to visit your website because they would want to see how you’ve set up your site. It is possible they can copy an idea from your site if they find it appealing.

It is very obvious that after a link has been placed in a website or any platform, it is ready to receive clicks and direct those persons to the designated websites. The relevancy of those websites and products is why you share their links. When you are done pasting/adding links in posts, there is only one thing you have to do now. Make a follow up!

Get your affiliate links an easy accessibility by adding custom texts that wrap and describe them.eg; ‘CLICK HERE TO OPEN.’ With this,the reader will easily click on the link without worries because the custom word which is a directory in other words, is very clear and straight to the point.

You need to raise up the number of viewers for posts on your affiliate site to increase chances of it being clicked on. Sharing specified posts having your links, to other platforms or even friends is a good follow up as it gets your website as well as the links a huge exposure to more people. This will entirely set you to a level a head of that which you are at.

There are actually a few people who do this practice because it tends to be tiresome and boring mostly when you share and nobody responds to your message. If you are trusted by many of your friends, they are most likely to follow up your message and use your links to access what you are promoting.

When you engage with other blogs, you are not only trying to get clicks or leads but you are also making your website popular to the blogging community. The best way to engage with blogs is by following and comenting on their blog posts as well. In return, the other blogger will be notified about your action on their blog and will want to visit yours too.( Tip of the day).

Do not just publish content and relax it’s not all done it is a continuous process even though you may be on a two day, five day or ten day streak. What matters is you to keep your readers visiting your site regularly.

How do you ralley in the field of affilate marketing while sharing affiliate links?(Mailing tips)

Although there is difficulty of getting sales as an affiliate in one way or the other, one has got this question in mind-why is it so? that making a single sale is as hard as speaking a language you don’t know. There are many reasons to be outlined that have answers to this question.

You may realise that one of the reasons is how you deliver your affiliate links. In most cases, when you decide to go via social media using the links and trying to spread awareness about a product that you are promoting, there is a tendency by those platforms like Facebook and twitter to regulate how much people see your link. They make sure that in a period of 24hours or more, only a few people see that post at that particular time. The reason why they do this is; they try as much as possible to protect their users from scammers and hackers so it is only shown to a few people whom they are sure of.

How to publish product links.

1. It would work best, sending links as messages hidden in a qualitative meaningful choice of words. For example, If I want to send a custom message to Halsey with my affiliate product link, it would look like this( Hey Halsey! I hope you’re greately fine, I have something that I would like you to try out here. It is a(product desription). Give it a try and you will like it. You have to be sure of the product you are introducing to this person so that they won’t regret having bought it.

2. The best of all is having access to mailing  platforms. Here you can send customised email content with covers links without any restriction. Gather as many email addresses as possible. You will use them to send email messages to the owners of these addresses by email or mail chip for website owners. Services like Mail chip have a feature that enables you to send multiple emails to many addresses at once and even describing them to the receivers.

3. In conclusion, whether you are using mail chip, a personal email address, or any other communication media, you need to see that your product links have a good attractive links that can trigger people to click on them.  This will make your site a safe place for visitors and this is how professional affiliates do it to make more and more money from their sites. It just takes not money but your creativity.

Ranking your affiliate site with SEO experience.

How to get displays of your web pages or YouTube videos in searches.

SEO is an abreviation meaning, Search Engine Optimization. Has any one ever told you this before? May be yes!, may be no! I am also not sure but what I know is, you have ever heard this word ‘SEO’ being mentioned somewhere may be in a piece of writing or as just spoken. The (mother board) to all those heavily trafficked websites in the world is this animal called SEO. I don’t know whether there is another in Mars I haven’t researched about it lately. So, let me ask;-Have you ever thought of your affiliate website being ranked by search engines? If yes, how do you want it done? Could it be through automated ads? Not a bad idea either but you would spend much because for how long will you be running adds for your site? It could even get you into trouble when you used feck advertising companions who only drive artificial traffic instead of organic traffic. Here is the thing-you can grow and get your web ranked by search engines using some other technique-SEO

Understanding search engines (SE), how they work and what to do with them.

Search engines are also called web search engines or web crowlers. They are softwares designed to search or crawl the web to gather information ie web pages. The examples of search engines below will help us understand better what they are; Google,Yandex,Bing,Baidu and Yahoo. There are quite a number of (SE) types and they all do one thing that is;- ranking websites.        

Let’s see how search engines work- When a website is ranked, it means increased traffic for it. Just like a book has pages, websites also contain pages and the information in those pages is what search engines crawl for. So, when search engines find a page from your website, it will be stored together with it’s content for indexing,sent to web servers that make it available to web browsers like Google chrome, Mozila Firefox etc.   When it’s indexed, it will then be displayed in searches for people to find your information . Indexing may not be automatic if your website isn’t having quality content. Search engines index your web pages through short phrases known as key words.   Without these, it may take you years to get ranked by Google, bing or any other search engine. Key words are phrases or words that searchers enter in to search engines to find your pages.

Now you have known the the secret of keywords so what next? Apply the use of keywords in your website. First, to begin using key words, you have to research about your competitors who’s content is related to yours. Find out what key words they are using on their sites. This is where we will get to know ranked keywords and low unrunked keywords. It is important to have both high and low key words in your website and I will tell you why?

Take for instance, you have just build a new website or have one that has existed for many years and has been using keywords but has not been ranked yet by any of the search engines, it could be because the keywords used are improper for it or the key words are highly ranked. When ranked keywords are used in your website,your website will be directly competing with ranked site using the same keyword. Highly ranked keywords have many results to show when searched in search engines. The screen below show an example of a highly ranked keyword

Now, the reason why your website will not be ranked is; those highly ranked websites have used that particular keyword before and their pages are ranked with that keyword so it is difficult for the engines to replace those sites with yours which does not have more of the keyword content. So, before you choose to use a certain keyword,you should always measure it’s ranking in such a way that if it has a few results of about 5000 or below,you may use it with no doubt.

Using ranked keywords alone may let your website to be buried down by ranked websites because they will all be using the same phrase/ keyword. Low-keywords are more recemmended because they are unique to the search engines this means high chances of being indexed which will result to good ranking but they may also take some time. It is advisable to use both high and low keywords to be sure of consistency. Your site will be in an intermediate state of ranking which is not bad. An example of a low keyword is shown below.

You will also have to carry out a thorough research for keywords that you will be using in you website time after time. Keywords can be ranked for many years as long as your website is active. At least twenty(20) keywords per post make a reasonable keyword usage.

Building a targeted audience and turning them in to buyers.

It is quite vital building a targeted audience for your business, affiliate site or niche. Having a target audience helps you to establish a community that will be around your site all the time because it is a kind of audience that already likes what you have to offer

Beginner affiliates normally tend to rush for high competitions with big affiliate marketing sites, which is not right. If you do that, your site is most likely to be buried down to the bottom of those highly ranked websites. The search engines will not recognise your site especially if it has the the same or related content as other ranking websites.

One could begin with family and friends around as their first priority. Once you have these in your line, it is them now to help you bring in more customers through their inspirations. It takes a little longer to build a large community but be patient enough because it takes time and it’s what we invest in order to achieve.

So, when you have a number of people interested in what you share about in your site, you can turn them in to real customers by creating a landing page with guidance on how to make and complete transactions. Make them believe that you are not a scammer or spammer in any way and be consistent. That way, you will keep getting new customers on and on and on.

Optimize you website to search engines with unique keywords related to what you are writing about. This will make it easier for the search engines to identify that your site has something different and so it should be displayed in searches. Once you get displays in searches, it is so easy to bring more people through search results that your site appears in. This is a tip for SEO.

Tip; Your keywords must be within the first 500 words of your content for the search engines to recognise. The reason why most affiliates fail to make sales because they don’t have people targeted to their affiliate sites
