In an ideal world, all the code you know can help you attain that alluring top position in search engine results. But wake up; this is not an ideal world! There are hundreds or even thousands of others who are fighting an unending saga for the first spot on the internet search engine results. Boy, who wouldn’t like to see their page pop up first in the results? However, achieving this feat is in not an easy job at all. Yet there are websites and blogs which are extremely popular and are not awarded by any popular search engines.
Adding Unique Content
If you are a devote Facebook, Linkedln or Twitter user, you should know that these social media websites are like paradise for advertisers. You can really make use of social media networks for increasing the link juice for your website or blog. If you look closely the way SEO works, it is all about adding functionality. When you add features like RSS Feeds, images or videos from renowned sites to your own content, you are attracting a lot of viewers. Make sure that the content is unique and not just a copy paste job. If you try to pass content without proper credits, you are definitely participating in an act of plagiarism. So beware!
Taking an active part
Another very good use of social media to increase your site’s or blog’s visitors is to take an active or passive part in other blogs, forums or networks. Comment on other’s links, start a discussion on something that you might hold profound knowledge of. If you do not find any topic to actually talk about, simply do a brief Google session and come back to join the discussion, you will do just fine. But mind you, do not get carried away and make a joker out of yourself. This is not ‘THE’ only technique in SEO, but ‘ONE’ of the techniques.
The best way to market your website is by word of mouth. And when we say that, your target audiences are not your neighbors or your friend’s neighbors. You need to spread the ‘talk’ on the internet social websites. Just make your webpage look pleasant and also make sure you have the right content. If you need good traffic, these two aspects are probably your biggest mantras.
A user will ‘like’, ‘comment’ and ‘share’ it on Facebook, or ‘tweet’ about it on Twitter, which in turn will create a chain reaction of sharing or tweeting and you know where is this going. A really good site spreads like virus and there is no turning back. Once you get your fan base set, you just need to repeat the good content every time!
Had enough? There are plenty more ways to go about this SMO. You may use the mighty internet to come up with more ploys or use your imagination and create a new wind in SMO, but the chances are you are going to go with the former than the later. Good luck!
