It is most important to do SEO for your site if you want to rank higher on the search engine result pages (SERPs.)

Reasons behind these scenarios are- those blogger’s who are doing SEO rightly and creating fresh content for their readers they are getting good traffic to their blog. On the other side, those blogs which has no traffic or little amount of traffic; they might not doing SEO or any other traffic generating campaigns for their blogs.
Enough talking! I will not talk anymore about them why they are not getting traffic to their blog 😛 Instead of, I am going to tell you what you need to do to get traffic to your new created blog. That is SEO! Alright!
Some Basic SEO you must have to Know
Basically SEO stands For Search Engine Optimization
Firstly, lets get some ideas about SEO:
There are 3 kinds of SEO:-
- White Hat SEO
- Black Hat SEO
- Gray Hat SEO
Again, mainly there are 2 parts of SEO:-
- On page SEO
- Off page SEO
On Page SEO Steps:
Let clear your mind first of all! Do not think unnecessarily about Advanced SEO strategy. Just think simply and do the work rightly. You have to think more about on page SEO especially before thinking about off page SEO heavily. Because, on page SEO is the Heart of whole S E O word that is, Search Engine Optimization! Without proper on site optimization you can’t get ranking for long time on the SERPs. So, in the on page SEO part you have to do lots of work. Do not worry! Read this best 9 On page SEO Techniques. Well, now here I am going to explain all the things rightly here in this post!
Keyword Research: If you do not set any goal then you cannot reach your destination. Right? Same as here, you have to think about what you are going to write. So, here you need to select some specific keywords you are going to rank for! For this you have to perform keyword research! There are lots of online tools can help you out that purpose. Some free tools are- KeywordsEverywhere, KW Finder, Ubersuggest, Keyword Reveler, Keysearch etc.
Tip: I recommend everyone to target low competitive keyword to rank easily. Do not go for competitive keyword that has high competition.
Find low competitive keywords and optimize it rightly to rank your post! So, how do you know which keyword has low Competition? Simple as that, just look over the top 10 competitors on the First page of Google. Do not over think.
Just do a search on Google with your keyword and see which sites are ranking on the First page. You do not need to browse all of the Google pages. Just have a look at the 1st Page. See, are they optimized for the targeted keyword? How much Domain authority and page authority, numbers of Backlink they have? If you find there are many sites out of 10 on the first page have high DA, high PA (above 30) and lots of Backlink then, do not go for that keyword. Look for another keyword and do the same things you have done before and continue until you get any low competitive keyword to target!
Here is a full process of doing keyword research perfectly:
Title Tag Optimization: So, you have got an easy competition keyword and then the next step is to optimize it correctly in order to rank. Place you targeted keyword in the first part of title. Suppose your targeted keyword is- Best SEO Tools. So, a title will be like this- “Best SEO tools every bloggers must know”! Always make sure that, your focused keyword is in title. Try to make your blog title keyword rich and more attractive. Do not repeat keyword twice or more time in title. It is very bad.
URL Optimization: Place the targeted keyword in the URL tag also. But, try to make it short as much as you can. A good URL is like- bloggercashonline.com/best-seo-tools.html
Do not put lots of keyword in the URL, because it is considered as bad optimization. Research has found that post which is optimized in short URL format ranks better than any longer URL. So, Why don’t you take this Golden opportunity as well:-D
Image Optimization: An Image talks more than text. Right? Using image on post makes it more compelling and attracts the readers to stay long time on blog. Image optimization is one of the most important parts of SEO. You have to do it rightly. It is very simple. If you are using WordPress CMS then it makes you easy to do this task. What you have to do, in Alt text you have to place the targeted keyword. Look, here is an example: – best-seo-tools- JPEG. You can also add some keyword variation to get rid of over optimization. Read this article to know the tips of finding free images from google advanced search.
Heading Tags: It is very effective if you place your keyword in heading tags. Try to put the keyword in heading tags one time. You may ask me then, where is the H1 tag? Yes, your post title is the H1 Tag! Just sprinkle some related keywords along with main keyword in every single Header 1, 2, 3 tags. But, always keep in mind that, do not over optimize it by putting lots of keyword unnecessarily.
Internal linking: Internal linking means, while writing your post, make sure to link some relevant post inside your content. Suppose, you are writing a post on- best laptop computer. So, in this post you just link another post which is about cheap laptop bag. So, whenever people read your post, they may also click on other link to know more. By this way, readers will stay long time and your site ranking will increase. That’s why internal linking is one of the best on page SEO strategies.
Optimize site loading speed: This is one of the crucial factor of on page seo. Google likes the website which load very fast. If your site takes very long time to load, then visitor will not visit your site anymore. They will click on the back button and will leave your site. And, if it happens, then it is the red signal for your site, because Google hates such kind of slow loading sites. You will not perform well on the search results. So, try to use light and clean theme, and use less plugins, do not make your site heavy by using too much ads.

OFF page SEO Steps:
Then we have come on this part. I have said earlier that on page SEO is the most important part of SEO. It is true also. But, we cannot ignore the importance of off page SEO. At the end of day, Backlink is still needed in order to rank. You have to take backlink from relevant sites to get better results. Relevant mean, the same industry you are on. For an example, your blog is about blogging tips related, so you have to take link from others blog which is talking about blogging related content. Just keep relevancy and see how amazingly your link works than lots of link from irrelevant sources.
So, from where you should start your link building mission?
Well, here I am going to discuss about this from very beginning and basic level which a newbie can definitely understand.
Niche Relevant Blog Comment: At first it seems easy to do and effective too. It is not much necessary to define what exactly blog comment is? Everyone know it, Right?
So, moving on! All you have to do is find some blog and leave comment on it and link back to your site. Simple! But, one thing you have to keep in mind that, to get effective results you have to find some relevant blog related to your niche. It is very important that you can’t ignore. So, how do you find those niche relevant blogs to make comment on?
You can use lots of foot prints for this. Here is an example- “blogging tips”+ leave comment
Search it on Google and you will get tons of sites where you can make comment. Simply, use your keyword in between the “-“marks.
If you feel complicated with the above method then, there are so many tools which can help you to get your work done easily. Take a look at this tool- Dropmylink.com
Just go to this link and register an account. Put your keyword in the empty box and select the option below what types of link you want to make like comment Luv and so on, and on which platform you are interested to leave your comment.
Quick Notes on Blog comment:
Only make comment on High DA (Domain Authority) and PA (Page Authority) Blogs.
Leave comment only on your topic related blogs.
Do not submit comment on irrelevant blog.
Avoid commenting on blog which have huge spam comment already.
Use your Real name and Photo while commenting.
Do not leave your blog link directly in the comment box. (It’s spam)
Niche Relevant Forum Post: This is an old technique which is still effective if you do it rightly. I see lots of people say, forum posting does not work. Yes, it’s little bit true. But, the logic behind saying that it won’t work because; going to spam with hundreds of forums at a time and blast the link on irrelevant treads on forums won’t make it happen. You have to go for quality and relevancy. Always keep in mind that, only quality matter here. Not quantity.
So, find some forums which are much relevant to your blog and register one by one. At least register on 10-13 Forums, you may register more but I doubt you can’t active on all of these forums at the same time.
Quick Notes on Forum Post:
Only Join on Niche Relevant Forums.
Try to be active and always be helpful to others.
Put your website link on “signature” in profile section.
Do not leave your blog link here and there on forums.

People spammed it so much that lot’s of directory got deleted from internet forever as Google considered as spam. So, you might be asking me, why I am still going to talk about it? Well, your question will not remain as question!
