Many Webmasters and blog owners see SEO as a big deal on their website. While SEO can be pretty important you have to remember that it’s not all about SEO.
1. I Want To Be Number One On Google “Period”
Well everyone wants to be number one on the first page of Google for their chosen keywords but this isn’t always the case. We all know that being in the first position on the first page of Google is very important because up to 60% of the organic clicks come from the first position on a Google search.
But if this is your only goal then you are going to fail overall because what about your readers and visitors.
Over the last six months search engines have changed the way that they rank and view websites. You will find out that in 2012 Google is going to be using personalised searches.
What this means is that people will get different results depending on where they are, their searching history, cookies and other factors.
Late last year Google announced that they will no longer be showing what keywords people used to find your website if they are signed in to their Google account. This is one of the reasons why you cannot just focus on Ranking because search engines like Google are moving the goalposts on a monthly basis.
2. You Haven’t Posted In How Long?
If you have a blog or website and you haven’t posted any content in the last six months your blog has sunk like a brick in water.
If you want the SEO to succeed on your blog or website you have to create and post a steady stream of content. But it cannot be any content it has to be the type that engages and educates your target audience.
A stagnant blog will not help SEO at all because gone are the days where you could create a one-page website and it stays at number one for years. Search engines want fresh content.
3. Any Old Link Will Do!
Backlinks are one of the most important things every blog or website needs to be able to rank well in the search engines. But there is a right way and a wrong way to link build and if you are buying thousands of backlinks or spamming you need to it stop now.
Don’t compromise on the integrity of the website by getting back links from worthless and irrelevant websites because in the long-running it will not help your website out one bit.
Remember this one thing and that is “not all back links are equal” one do follow back link from a PR6 website is worth more than 1000 PR0 backlinks.
To get PR6 do follow backlinks is simple, all you have to do is submit a few posts to highly trusted websites. Having a few anchor text links on these highly trusted sites will do wonders for your blog.
