7 SEO Tips for Bloggers to Practice:

1. If you really want to get serious and grow your blog, attend an ALT Summit online class, or any SEO class to help you gain a better understanding about your site and what Search Engines are looking for. My information is second hand. That is one of the tips – go to the source. Check out upcoming classes here.

2. SEO is NOT a guarantee for success.

3. Compelling CONTENT is KEY. Start analyzing your data. Check to see how much time people are spending on your site. What pages are the most popular? Search engines really respond to unique content. Don’t copy and paste something you saw on another site. Be the authority, not a “copy and paste” blogger.

4. Build your followers organically. Never succumb to the spammers promising 1000 Pinterest or Facebook followers. Really, do not buy followers. Buying fans will not bring you any value.

5. Every time you post something on your blog, include a relevant link. For example: Don’t tell me that you love your new coat you purchased without providing the link to the store. Followers want the information at their fingertips, and they want it yesterday.

6. Find your niche. The Internet is HUGE. Watch your data and know what your users are searching for. Studying your data can help you find your niche. When you see traffic coming in on a certain topic, take that data and produce more similarly related content. Expand on what is popular to your site.

7. Use the free tools that are available to you, such as Bing Webmaster Tools. They are there to help you.
