Top 10 Joomla SEO tips for Google

Its been while since I have done much blogging about Joomla SEO, almost a year in fact. I thought I would do some research and see how the collective wisdom of the industry has changed with what matter to get a page search engine optimized (SEO). Use this top ten list if you already have a site ranked and want to see what you can implement to get your ranking higher.

Its been while since I have done much blogging about Joomla SEO, almost a year in fact. I thought I would do some research and see how the collective wisdom of the industry has changed with what matter to get a page search engine optimized (SEO). This isn't exhaustive, for that you should check out my Complete guide to Joomla SEO or Alledia's SEO guide. Use this top ten list if you already have a site ranked and want to see what you can implement to get your ranking higher. Much of the information here is based on two 2007 studies about ranking in Google from SEOmoz.org and Sistrix.

1. Keyword Use in Title Tag

and appear in the blue bar of your browser.The number one factor in ranking a page on search engines is the title tag. These are the words in the source of a page in
Choose the title of an article very carefully. Joomla will use the title of the article in the title tag (what appears in the blue bar). It will also be the text used in any insite links (see #5 and 6)

2. Anchor Text of Inbound Link

Anchor text is the text that appear underlined and in blue (unless it’s been styled) for a link from one webpage to another.
Try to get some inbound links to your article using the keywords you want to be ranked for. Two ways are to do this are through online press services such as PRweb.com or simply by networking.

3. Global Link Popularity of Site (PageRank)

How many pages are linking to your page is called link popularity, or in Google, PageRank.
The more sites link to you, the better. Joomla is a CMS that helps you add content quickly. Create one quality content page per day. Quality content is the most important factor to getting bound links. For a site that will perform well, you eventually need 200 odd pages of content. This is the important point. QUICK SEO IS DEAD. The only way to perform well in SEO now is to have a rich content site.

4. Age of Site

When was the domain of the site registered?
Nothing you can do about this, but there is evidence that suggests that how long you have your domain registered for makes a difference (spam sites are not registered for long). Go and extend your domain registration for a couple of years.

5. Link Popularity within the Site

This is the number of links to the page from inside your own domain.
Because of #2, it’s critical that you link to articles from within your site using the right anchor text. Make sure that you:
  • Use the linked titles setting
  • Make good used of the Most Read, Related Items and Latest News modules.
  • Have a sitemap component linked to right from your homepage

6. Topical Relevance of Inbound Links and Popularity of Linking Site

It’s important that you get quality inbound links. This means they have to be from a site that is topically related to your, and one that has a high PageRank.
  • It’s worth submitting once to directories (then forget about it).
  • Type “related:www.yoursite.com” into google and contact the top 20 returns for links.Link Popularity of Site in Topic Community
  • Make sure you have a blog on your site, and network with others in your topical community. Make sure you frequently link to other blogs in your topical community.

7. Keyword Use in Body Text

The keyword density of the phrase you are optimizing for in the content of the page. Still important, the German study from Sistrix identified some interesting results.
  • Targeted keywords in the first and last paragraphs. There is a simple trick here, write your quality content, and then use the tool of your choice to find the keyword density. THEN, take the top three words and add them to the meta keywords in the parameters part of the page (in Joomla admin). This is somewhat backwards for some maybe, it optimizes a page for what you actually wrote, rather than trying to write a page optimized for certain words (which I always find difficult).
  • Keywords in H2-H6 headline tags seem to have an influence on the rankings while keywords in H1 headline tags seem to be getting less valuable. Modify the output of the core content component through a template override file.
  • Using keywords in bold or strong tags - slight effect, same with img alt tags and filenames.

The Birth of SEO

Search engine optimization, also known as “SEO,” is a strategy used to improve the traffic to a particular website from a search engine. SEO has become a popular technique, utilized by many companies to improve their revenue and popularity through online exposure. The way SEO works is simple. In order to improve a company’s popularity online, certain fundamental key words must be found throughout the website. Depending on the type of business at hand, certain words are commonly used across other websites. When a person makes an online search for a certain topic, those websites who use the word, or common words, most frequently will appear at the top of the list after the search. The overall concept is to try to have your company’s page ranked high so that web surfers will be more likely to check out your page as opposed to others.

The concept for search engine optimization began in the mid-1990s when the Internet was in its early stages. The more popular Internet usage became, the more companies discovered that they could increase their profits by advertising themselves online. What first began as just uploaded links and indexes on a webpage that would extract information about the site quickly grew into an online phenomenon. A few years later, the SEO technique was born.

Nowadays, almost every company that has a website practices SEO techniques to improve their content. Whether it’s by packing their sites full of key words or by providing links that take web surfers to other pages owned by the company, businesses utilize the technique worldwide. SEO is the number one strategy for increasing online exposure and revenue in this day and age and the benefits of having your website rank highly among competitors has proven to increase the revenue generated from and popularity of a product.

Importance of RSS Feeds

Sharing With RSS
Really Simple Syndication, or RSS, feeds are an easy way of sharing content. The blog owner is in totally control of what is shared and it makes keeping up to date a really easy task.

Increase Return Visits
For the blog owner, it can increase traffic back to your website. Primarily it is increasing the repeat traffic to your blog, which is very important traffic. If a reader is willing to come back time and time again to see what interesting new content you have placed, they are valuable dedicated readers. Not only does this increase your traffic levels, but they are then also likely to start joining in by placing comments, book marking with sites such as Digg and Stumble Upon and sharing your ramblings with their friends directly and through sites such as Twitter.
Best of all, because they are long term readers not only do you get to interact through comments and replying to their comments, but they also have more trust in what you say and are more likely to respond to affiliate promotions.

Increase New Visitors
But RSS Feeds are not just about existing visitors. Some websites like to share the content of other websites and they do this by utilising the RSS feeds. By displaying your RSS Feed content on their website they are possibly showing it to new readers, who might become your visitors.

How Do You Install RSS?
So, how do you use them if they are so fantastic for generating traffic? Well any decent blog software will have an RSS feed built in, but there are also tools such as Feedburner that gives more options.
Then, make sure you have a big, obvious RSS Feed icon on every page. Make it obvious, somewhere that people will look to and always notice it. Also, add a page about using the feed - how to subscribe, what it does and so on. Invite your readers to subscribe and keep up to date.

You Choose Your Options
It is up to you how you run your feed. Options will permit you to have, for example, just the most recent 10, 20 or whatever number of posts you want to include. Some people like to just include a summary of the post, fearing that others will use the feed to steal content, whilst others like to share as much as possible to get the best advantages.

You can also use tools to exclude certain categories from your feeds. I like to drop the uncategorised posts from my feeds - I categorise every main post so anything filed in uncategorised is usually off topic and I don't want to trouble regular feeders with them.

It is up to you how you use the RSS feed, just make sure that you do as they are invaluable in building your website traffic.

Content Writing – Why is it so important?

In simple words content writing is writing for websites. The content in the websites are equally important as the design of the website. The content of the website should be to the point and crisp to get the attention of the reader but at the same time it must cover the topic. If you have a brand, content help you to project the same or otherwise it actually reflect your seriousness toward your products and services. It can have an adverse effect to your website and your business if the content is not up to the mark.

Content writing can be classified into various types. It can be web content writing, SEO content writing and simple articles. The main ingredient of the content write up should be good content. It is a difficult task to define what good content is. However a good quality content writing includes the two main aspects which are Usefulness and Uniqueness. Content writing involves more of research that writing.
In this competitive market there are many companies that are providing content writing services. They have a group of professionals who will design the content for you website. For an effective website content writing, usage of shorter sentences, word and paragraphs are effective. One idea per paragraph will give a clear explanation.

Advantage Of Social Bookmarking

SEO Expert Delhi
The biggest technological development of the late twentieth and early 21st centuries is probably the Internet. It has brought together people from all cultures, social and political ideologies and economic pursuits. This led to the development of what is currently known as "social book-marking" sites that have taken the internet world by storm. This new trend on cyberspace comes with a lot of benefits that you may not want to miss out on. Three are worthy of being mentioned here as they concern Internet marketers, irrespective of their areas of endeavor or business niches. These include:

1. Quick Indexing: The fastest way to have any web page or site visited by the search engines and indexed is by submitting them to any of the popular social book-marking sites like StumbleUpon, OnlyWire and others. I have had a brand new one-day old website visited by the Yahoo, Google and MSN search engine robots within 24 hours of submitting them to these social book-marking sites. I can categorically say that it is the best bait to attract the bots to your pages.

2. Traffic Generation: There is more to book-marking your pages online than just getting indexed; you are also guaranteed some traffic from these sites as soon as you submit to them. Since you will also be tagging (or submitting them under your niche keywords), a lot of the traffic from these sites are also very targeted. The result is that you may also have return visitors if you have very useful content or compelling offers on your website.

3. Personal Branding: Most of the social bookmarking sites like StumbleUpon also give you the opportunity to develop your own page on their site. This is more like a more developed profile that you can use to list all your web pages, post links to your sites and even publish content on any niche that you may be involved in.
In this way, you are not only submitting your pages to get one-way links to your sites, you are also branding yourself; you are establishing yourself as an expert to reckon with in your niche. A lot of these profile pages also get very high PR love from Google, thereby giving you a better chance of dominating your niche in the search engines. A lot of people on the site will also add you as a friend which will expand your network of fans and thereby generating you more traffic for you.

4. Quality Back links: As I mentioned above, you can build a personal page on a lot of the social book-marking sites, including the leading one, StumbleUpon. I have seen personal pages on these sites that have grown to a PR3 and even PR4. The effects of these is that your page will be frequented by the search engine robots, indexing any new content that you post on it and even following links to your own personal site and indexing the new pages and content on them. People pay top dollars to have high Page Rank links pointing their way, but with the right profile, you get them for free anytime and for a long time to come.

Directory submissions are an important part of the link building process offered by many SEOs. Listing in good directories automatically brings in quality back links, increasing link popularity, increase your ranking in search engines, traffics and many more which all of are describe as below .

  1. To get your website indexed
    Search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN send out spiders-crawlers (Generally between 10 to 20 days) to search the web for new sites that come up everyday.For example, If you using the "add URL" page to submit your website to Google then it takes 4-6 weeks to listing site in it.

    PR - What it is and How to Get Ranked

    SEO Company Delhi
    It is a established reality that Google Designates every single website page a Google Page rank (PR), which is Built on an sophisticated precise algorithm. Pages are ranked on a progression with zero as the lowest and ten as the highest. Interlinking of websites - external (linking to other websites) as well as internal (links from on page of a website to another page on the same website) - is appreciated when it comes to Page Rank.
    If website Y links to website Z, then website Y gets credited with a percentage of website Z's PR. Website Z loses nothing as far as Page Rank is concerned - unless and until the link is to a bad website (porn, extreme violence, gambling, etc.) or a barred area.

    An case in point to interpret the circumstances better: Site Z had a Page Rank of 5, there were only 2 outbound links to Site Z. One of the outbound Links was to brand new Site Y. Brand new Site Y had 4 outgoing links, with NO other Incoming Links, apart from the one from Site Z. Google bestowed Site Y a PR of 5.

    From this case in real life, it is obvious that fewer outbound links on a per page basis earns a higher PR.

    If Site Z in the above case had a massive bundle of outgoing links on the page, in that scenario, the percentage of Page Rank conceded would have been smaller and the New Site Y would have been given a lower rank than the equal rank that was passed with fewer external links.

    What To Avoid

    Whilst partaking in reciprocal linking, make certain you look at the number of outbound links that not only the page has but the overall site as well. Search engines such as Google do not like pornography sites, gambling sites and Link Farms that have thousands of links on them. Do not link to any of those types of sites unless that is your business.

    You May possibly suffer big Page Rank loss and Search Engine results if you link to sites that are regarded as bad neighborhoods or are barred. Be watchful and make certain you monitor before linking. Though now and then you may possibly not be disciplined, you will not reap any benefits and the loss in PR (page rank) of your site is not at all worth it.

    Be conscious of which sites the outbound links are linking your site to. Look at your outbound links methodically, to make certain that they are:

    1) Still an functioning website
    2) Still a resource for the purpose you linked to them in the first place
    3) They have not reconfigured formats or the theme and remain to be a quality site.

    Page Rank progresses over time. Though not very often, Google does update the Page Rank, once in say every four to eight months. So link swap with like-themed sites or important sites is the finest SEO Tactic.

    On-Page Search Engine Optimizations - For Joomla

    SEO Delhi
    Search Engine Optimizations (SEO) are activities and modifications to make websites which are primarily made for humans, also properly readable by search engines. Off-page activities are mainly focused on link building, while on-page optimizations are small modifications on pages to emphasize target keywords. Search engines do not "see" the layout of the website, their spiders and crawlers only download HTML code and analyze it. Therefore, from this code it should be evident what the page is about. This can be done with few simple tricks.

    SEO is always connected with target keywords. These are search phrases that we would like to optimize our website for. Usually we optimize each page for one keyword. This means that we create an article about our target keyword and we emphasize this with header tags, meta description, search engine friendly urls and page title. All those elements should contain our keyword--this will tell also to search engines what this page is about. Of course, the content should also be about this keyword, otherwise SEO can not help. When the page is set up you can focus on off-site optimizations.

    There are many ways to create websites. A popular approach is to use open source content management systems like Wordpress and Joomla. Wordpress is the main tool for bloggers, while Joomla is used for a wide variety of websites. Joomla already supports search engine friendly urls but this is limited to the core elements, third party extensions are not supported. An elegant solution for this problem is the sh404sef component which takes care for friendly urls, header tags, and other important elements for SEO.

    The main purpose of the sh404sef Joomla component is to rewrite urls but it provides also many SEO and security functions. A very useful feature is insertion of h1 tags around article title and changing of multiple h1 tags into h2. In addition to this sh404SEF has several plugins to automatically create meta tags for some popular components. Alternatively you can create custom page title, meta description and meta keywords for any page, even those that are not directly accessed from the administration interface. With this component you have total control over all important SEO elements of every Joomla page. Most tasks are automated so you need manual intervention only in special cases. Making Joomla pages optimized for search engines is pretty simple even without any additional component, but it is much easier if you use dedicated extension like sh404SEF.

    How One Way Link Building Methods Help Your Rankings

    SEO Expert India
    Every webmaster dreams of getting the top positions on the search engines. The top 10 positions on the search engines are like prime real estate locations. People who secure these positions get higher traffic, more link love, more targeted leads and a lot more money (who doesn't love the last one!). There are various ways via which you can prime your website to attain higher visibility. One of them is through one way links. One-way link building methods help you increase your rankings on the search engine by

    1. Creating more Link love for Your Website

    One of the parameters used by the search engines for higher rankings is the amount of "votes" you get from high profile websites. These websites are often looked on by the search engines as being reputable, lacking in spam, and genuine sources of information.

    The bottom line is that links coming from these websites to your website or any other related website for that matter, are seen as "votes" that basically tell the search engines that the website is a good a resource. Since they are big on relevance, they automatically increase the website's visibility so that searchers can have access to all the information on the website.

    2. Generating Traffic

    Putting a link to another website from a very popular website can result in traffic for that website. For example, if you can get a link pointing to your wedding planning website from theknot.com, you are likely to get traffic from there to your website considering that the website generates about 1.4 million unique visitors. The search engines often consider websites with high traffic relevant as the bots think that it must have a lot of relevance, that's why lots of people are visiting it.

    3. Page Rank Increase

    Now when some of that traffic gets funneled to your own website, the page rank increases. Since page rank is one of those parameters used by the search engines, you can be sure that your website will get higher rankings. This is not to say that page ranks are extremely important. There are instances where websites with a page rank of 33 have outranked websites with a page rank of 5. It all boils down to the parameters.

    4. Relevance

    The search engines have evolved from being just spam machines filled with lots of junk to becoming highly discerning. What this basically means is that the algorithms have been built in such a way that only relevant websites are ranked highly and the irrelevant ones are chucked out. A one way link from a related website -e.g. a link from a gardening website pointing to a home decorations website- is seen as being a vote that the website is relevant thus increasing its visibility on the search engines.

    One way links are right now, very important in getting your websites ranked high. Hire a professional link building service and all these benefits could be yours.

    Social Bookmarking Strategy and 9 Additional Ways to Find Traffic

    Seo Company Delhi
    Blogs are well known ways to make yourself known online for personal as well as business reasons. You can easily make yourself a free blog and start posting your content right away. But, you will have done this in vain if no one is reading it. Here are ten things you can do to start bringing in the visitors your blog needs to serve its purpose.

    Out of every single successful blog online, many more have failed to succeed. Being in charge of a blog should be treated as if you were running a business site. If you are not more that willing to put in your share of work and treat it seriously, you probably won't be blogging anytime in the future.

    This is not to say that all of the past failed bloggers weren't serious about their blogging either. Mostly, new bloggers aren't aware or properly prepared for the demand that is needed to make their blog a success. Simply creating the blog doesn't mean that people will necessary come to you. You must pursue an audience and give them a reason to see what you have to say.

    1. Fresh Content - you won't find anyone who wants to visit a blog often and find it exactly the same as their last visit. Create and post new blog content at least twice a week. If you want to make this simpler write your posts ahead of time for uploading later.

    2. Article Marketing - the niche you've chosen for your blog site should be one you think people will find interesting and useful. Create content not only for your blog but also to be sent to article directories (Article Marketing Strategy Software will greatly speed up this process). Place a link in the resource box of the Article so people will find you.

    3. Social Networking - these sites are everywhere. Join Facebook, MySpace, Squidoo, Twitter or a dozen others and make connections.

    4. Viral Web Marketing - going Viral is where you spread the word to anyone and everyone about your blog. Meantion it to friends, family and aquantances. Giving out business cards with your blog URL is another great option.

    5. Use Your Site's RSS Feeds - RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." Readers can subscribe to your feed and get notified when new content is posted. It is an easy way for people to keep in sync with your blog.

    6. Submit Your Site to Search Engines - submitting your blog tells Search Engines to rank your blog.. It does not guarantee top ranking, though. It required you to do more work for that.

    7. Joining Forums - right now you are a budding entrepreneur. You must start by marketing yourself to find traffic before you can profit. Become a participant of popular business forums, work at home forums or any others you find relevant to get advice and learn from each other. Be sure to add a link to your blog site in the signature line so others can find your Website.

    8. Visit Similar Blogs - you can show appreciation to the people who visit you by also posting comments on their blogs. Be sure to add a link to your blog in your comment.

    9. SEO Marketing - no matter what you are posting about, make sure you use relevant keywords. Keyword density between 3 and 10 percent will help search engines know how to rank you. Base your blog's Keywords on what the most searched words used in Google for your niche are.

    10. Social Bookmarking - make a Social Bookmarking Strategy and submit your blog and blog posts to Social Bookmarking sites. This is a great way for people to discover you.

    Using these techniques will help get traffic heading in your direction. It may take some time, but you will find the visitors you need.

    Get High Quality One-Way Links With Pligg Submissions

    SEO Company Delhi
    The evolution of the Internet as a means for conducting business and making transactions has seen a tremendous growth over recent years. Many independent professionals, entrepreneurs and small business owners have plunged into the online business world and made a name for themselves, addressing either a local audience or a global one. The good news is that there is still a lot of money to be made using the Internet as a means of either setting up an online business or advertising for your existing commercial activity. However, as we all know, reaching the targeted audience and getting the message out there is of the utmost importance. And when it comes to online marketing, getting high quality traffic and one-way links to your web site is vital. This can be achieved in a number of ways, all of which fall under the large category of search engine optimization services.

    One way of getting high quality one-way links to your web site, whose efficiency has already been proven, is Pligg submission. For those of you who are not familiar with Pligg sites, you should know that these sites are communities dedicated to social voting, which are very similar to social bookmarking sites in all aspects, except for their size. Pligg sites are social media sites that can be created by anyone who wants to build a community around a specific area and target a particular audience. At this point, Pligg sites are among the fastest and most effective ways of launching a new social media website.

    Going back to search engine optimization and the part that Pligg submission plays in it, you should also know that links are submitted to Pligg sites and users vote for them according to their preference. This translates into exposure and visibility, which results in one-way links to your site.

    However, as you might have guessed, there's also a catch to Pligg submission. Thousands of sites are already being powered by this open source content management system. Most Pligg sites are not worth submitting to, as their future is questionable at most. As with all the other submissions that help drive traffic and improve your site's rankings, such as social bookmarking submission, web directory submission, article submission, etc., Pligg submit must be carefully performed. It usually takes a SEO expert to be able to tell which are the best Pligg sites where submission really pays off. Moreover, this SEO tool will only work to your advantage if submission is done manually and to a couple hundred Pligg sites.

    Pligg submit is also a very efficient way for a newly-developed web site to be indexed within a shorter time frame. Furthermore, Pligg submission is a very good linking strategy, as it allows the building of links for the inner pages, also known as deep links. This eventually translates into better rankings with the major search engines.

    5 Tips to Use Del.icio.us to Drive Blog Traffic

    SEO Delhi
    1. Write Great Titles
    When you submit a piece of content to del.icio.us, take the time to write a great title for it. Many del.icio.us users will see your submission and decide whether or not they want to click on that bookmark to read the original content or bookmark it themselves based solely on the title you give it.

    2. Add a Great Description
    Don't stop at writing a great title. When you submit a piece of content, take the time to write a description that will entice del.icio.us users to click through to read the original content or bookmark it themselves. Make your submissions too interesting to pass by with great descriptions.

    3. Use Relevant Tags
    If you want other del.icio.us users to find the content you submit, make sure you tag your bookmarks intuitively. Think of what tags other users would search for to find content like what you're bookmarking, then use those tags in your bookmark submission. The content you submit doesn't have a chance to generate any interest and traffic if no one can find it.

    4. Ask for Bookmarks
    When you write a great blog post, ask your readers to bookmark it. Send an email or Twitter your friends and ask them to bookmark it, too. Install the del.icio.us Tagometer which will show your readers how many people have bookmarked your posts. When people see that others are bookmarking a post, they'll often join in and bookmark it, too.

    5. Make Friends
    Build a network of friends on del.icio.us. Follow other users, bookmark their content, and develop relationships with them. A strong group of del.icio.us friends can have a powerful influence in terms of drawing attention to bookmark submissions.

    10 Free Blog Promotion Tips

    SEO Services India
    If you want to grow your blog, then it's critical that you take time to promote it. Unfortunately, the old theory, "if you build it, they will come," doesn't apply to blogs. With over one hundred million blogs being tracked by blog search engines such as Technorati, publishing compelling content isn't enough to drive awareness and traffic for your blog. Instead, you need to invest in some old-fashioned sweat equity to give your blog a traffic boost. The 10 free blog promotion tips below will help you get started.

    1. Comment on Other Blogs
    An easy way to give your blog a promotional boost is by commenting on other blogs. Each time you comment, enter the same name and URL in the corresponding fields in the blog comment form. Doing so will help your search engine optimization efforts over time. When you leave relevant, interesting and useful comments on other blogs (particularly those that are related to your own blog's topic), people will notice and follow the link back to your blog to learn more about you and read more of what you have to say.

    2. Post Frequently
    Posting frequently can boost your search engine traffic. Each new post acts as a new entry point for search engines to find your blogs. Writing with search engine optimization in mind can also boost the potential each of your posts has to lead traffic to your blog.

    3. Participate in Online Forums
    Join forums related to your blog topic and become an active, contributing member. Include a link to your blog in your forum signature, so it's always available to other members.

    4. Use Social Media
    Leverage the promotional opportunities that the social web provides. Join social networking sites like Facebook and LinkedIn and include links to your blogs and recent posts in your profiles. Join social bookmarking sites like Digg, StumbleUpon and Delicious and submit great content (not just your own). Additionally, consider jumping on the microblogging bandwagon and join Twitter. All of these efforts will increase awareness of your blog and give it added exposure.

    5. Link to Other Blogs in Your Own Posts
    Try to include links to other blogs in your own blog posts. Refer to other blogs you enjoy reading or specific posts you found particularly interesting. When those other blogs have the trackback feature turned on in their blogging software programs, you'll automatically get a link back to your own blog in the comment section of those posts. At the very least, the other blogger will see the incoming links from your blog in their blog statistic reports, putting you and your blog on his or her radar, and that means more exposure for you.

    6. Include Your Blog Link in Your Email Signature and on Business Cards
    Basically, include your blog URL everywhere you can. Your email signature and business cards are two of the most obvious places to promote your blog with a link or printed URL, but don't be afraid to think out of the box. Promotion is key to success when it comes to blogging. Don't be shy about tooting your own horn!

    7. Hold a Blog Contest
    Blog contests are a great way to attract new visitors to your blog. The most important thing to remember when using a blog contest as a promotional tool is to get the word out about the contest by announcing it on contest websites.

    8. Join a Blog Carnival
    Blog carnivals are an easy way to get links to your blog in front of a lot of people. The more closely related to your blog topic that the carnival is, the more traffic you'll get from it.

    9. Guest Blog
    Offer your services as a guest blogger for other blogs in your niche, particularly ones that get more traffic than yours does. Guest blogging is a great way to get links to your blog and your own thoughts and writing in front of people who are likely to be interested in learning more about you and your blog.

    10. Write Multiple Sites and Link Them Together
    The more blogs or websites that you write, the more interlinking is possible. That interlinking can be used to promote your blog through different channels that might attract different audiences. Create an integrated blog marketing plan by aligning your promotion efforts across your various blogs and websites to reap the biggest rewards.

    11 Free Link Building Tips

    Freelance Seo Delhi
    Incoming links are an essential component of building a successful blog. Links give your blog more authority on Technorati and a higher Google Page Rank. Together, those ratings can make your blog more attractive to advertisers, which allows you to charge higher advertising rates. Additionally, as your blog grows in authority and your number of incoming links grows, your Google search engine rankings will rise, which equates to more traffic to your blog. With more traffic comes more ad impressions, greater potential for pay-per-click ads to actually be clicked on and ultimately, more money for you.

    1. Write Content People Want to Read
    The easiest way to get people to link to your blog from their own blogs and websites is to publish great content. Naturally, if you write posts that are interesting, useful and helpful, people will want to talk about those posts on their own blogs and share them with other people. That means more links to your blog!

    2. Submit to Blog Directories
    There are a number of blog directories where you can add a link to your blog such as BlogHer. Some even include a social aspect such as BlogCatalog and MyBlogLog, which provide multiple ways to increase the number of incoming links to your blog simply through your registration.

    3. Get on Blogrolls
    Once you have a good amount of compelling content published on your blog, approach other bloggers with equal or more authority than your blog (as demonstrated through their Technorati rankings and Google Page Rank) and suggest a blogroll reciprocal link. This is most successful when both blogs are related to the same subject and you develop a relationship with the other blogger by leaving comments on his or her blog prior to suggesting a blogroll link exchange.

    4. Write Guest Posts
    Guest blogging is a great way to not only drive new traffic to your blog and promote your blog but also to increase the number of incoming links to your blog. This is particularly helpful when you are able to write a guest post on a blog that has a higher Technorati authority and Google Page Rank than your blog has.

    5. Hold Blog Contests
    Blog contests are a great way to drive traffic to your blog and increase the number of incoming links to it. First, you can promote your blog contest on a variety of blog contest promotion sites to add incoming links. Additionally, you can include a contest rule that tells entrants they can earn an additional entry into your contest by writing about the contest on their own blogs with a link back to the original contest post.

    6. Join Blog Carnivals
    Blog carnivals are a simple way to increase the number of links to your blog. Simply find a blog carnival related to your blog's topic (or start your own), write a post for the carnival and submit your post link to the main blog carnival site. Your post link will be published as part of the blog carnival bringing in another free link that can also drive a significant amount of traffic.

    7. Write Articles for Other Sites
    There are many websites that accept submissions from just about anyone such as eHow and Associated Content. Additionally, pursue opportuntities to write for online magazines and publications related to your blog topic that accept freelance submissions. Be sure to include a link to your blog with your article and bio.

    8. Create Other Blogs and Websites
    Create additional blogs, websites, Squidoo lenses, HubPages hubs and more, and interlink all of them to increase your links exponentially.

    9. Comment on Other Blogs
    When you leave a comment on another blog, always be certain to include your blog's URL in the URL field of the comment form. While some blogs use the "NoFollow" HTML tag in their blog template (meaning the link back to your blog won't count by Google's standards) it's a good habit to always include your URL, so the opportunity always exists for an incoming link with every comment you submit.

    10. Include Your Blog URL in Your Online Forum Signatures
    Join online forums and message boards related to your blog topic and actively participate. Ensure your blog URL is included in your forum signature, so it appears as a live link each time you submit a message in the forum.

    11. Participate in Social Networking Sites
    Social networking sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn and MySpace provide areas where you can include your blog's URL in your profile. Use your social networking accounts to further promote your blog and drive additional traffic to it.

    5 Way to Increase Google Page Rank

    SEO Expert Delhi
    Google page rank is an elusive term that most bloggers don't completely understand. In fact, there are probably few people in the world who completely understand it, because Google keeps the secrets of its page rank algorithm very guarded. Boosting your Google page rank isn't something you can do in a day. If it were, everyone would have a Google Page Rank of 10. Keep reading to learn a few of the tricks to increase your blog's Google page rank that are fairly easy to implement over time.

    1. Get Incoming Links from High Quality Related Sites
    The best way to increase your Google page rank might not make a difference over night, but it will make a big difference in time. The key is to get incoming links to your blog from highly authoritative and well-trafficked websites and blogs that are related your blog's topic.

    For example, if you write a blog about finance, getting a link from The Wall Street Journal website would give your blog a big boost. If you could get more high quality links from popular sites such as Fortune.com, SmartMoney.com, and so on, your blog's Google page rank would most certainly jump.

    2. Remember to Use SEO Techniques
    Search engine optimization is an important part of increasing Google page rank. Read the top 10 SEO tips, and make sure you're using them.

    3. Write Original Content
    Do not copy content from another site. Even if you're copying and republishing your own content from one page or one site to another, do not do it. Google's algorithm cannot tell the difference and will either give the originating site the credit and downgrade the others or downgrade all of the sites that publish the duplicated content. Google acts harshly toward any kind of content scraping, even if you're completely innocent. Once your page rank is downgraded, it can be nearly impossible to get it back up again.

    4. Don't Go Link Crazy
    Many bloggers hear that it's important to have incoming links to boost their blog's Google page rank, so they start leaving comments anywhere and everywhere across the web, participating in random link exchanges with anyone who is willing to participate, and so on. Remember, as the first item on this list says, Google's algorithm cares about quality links, not quantity. In fact, your page rank could be downgraded if your blog is deemed to be little more than a bunch of links.

    5. Write Great Content
    If you write great content, people will want to link to it, particularly high quality websites. Get on the radar screen of popular bloggers and websites by leaving comments, writing guest posts, participating in forums, emailing directly, writing articles, and so on. Build relationships with people who write for high quality sites, and the number of quality, incoming links you get to your blog will grow organically over time.

    How to increase StumbleUpon traffic?

    SEO Services Delhi
    Having noticed StumbleUpon come up regularly in my referrer stats I decided to try and increase the amount of StumbleUpon traffic for this blog. A traffic stats graph from SEOmoz shows StumbleUpon’s fantastic ability to drive traffic, the amount of referrals I have been receiving recently are around 50-100 visits a day which I hope will continue to improve.

    What is StumbleUpon?
    Social bookmarking websites such as Digg and Del.ico.us are an excellent method of gaining large quantities of traffic in a short space of time but the concept of StumbleUpon is slightly different. StumbleUpon has over a million users and generally refers a lower (but still significant) amount of traffic at a more consistent rate, whereas sites like Digg can send thousands of hits in the space of a few days for promoted stories which have made the frontpage.

    How does StumbleUpon work?
    Here is the definition of how StumbleUpon works but basically instead of listing popular stories on the homepage StumbleUpon works by downloading a toolbar which allows you to rate a website as thumbs up or down and view relevant websites (by clicking Stumble!) based on your own preferences.

    StumbleUpon Toolbar
    To begin receiving traffic from StumbleUpon you must have at least one of your webpages submitted. You can add this yourself by downloading the toolbar and browsing to your website, selecting the thumbs up ‘I like it!’ button will add this page to StumbleUpon.

    How to increase StumbleUpon traffic?
    The main methods I have found to improve StumbleUpon traffic have been:

    Rating websites
    By getting involved in the community and rating some of the websites I visit helps my website appear for StumbleUpon users who have similar interests to my own, therefore they will be more likely to rate my site with a thumbs up! StumbleUpon is time-based, although not to the same extent as Digg, which means the more votes you can get in a short period of time the more traffic you will receive.

    Adding friends
    By adding friends you will increase the amount of users who will see your newly added webpages, making them more likely to give your site the thumbs up.

    Submit new webpages
    Once I have created a new blog post for example I will submit the URL to StumbleUpon using the toolbar, it is perfectly fine to promote your own website providing you don’t overdo it. This will help to increase the amount of my webpages I have present in the StumbleUpon database and improve the likelihood of my site being ’stumbled upon’.

    Carefully selecting topic titles
    It is important to categorise webpages carefully to ensure that it will be displayed to relevant users.

    Adding multiple tags
    By using multiple tags you can help to attract a wide range of users and by keeping these as relevant to the content as possible will help to keep the traffic targeted.
