How To Increase Your Blog Ranking

Try these tips in when you want to increase your blogs ranking:

1)Have a blog theme- your blog is a great place to market your product. Create visually appealing designs, that emphasize the nature of your business. If you sell garden supplies and services, your blog design should have beautiful pictures of perfect manicured gardens. Let your reader be drawn in to what you can do for them.

2) Know your competition. Understand your competition and learn from them. Use this tool called Spyfu and enter a competitors name. You will be amazed how much you will find out. You will learn of your competitors advertising budget, keyword bid amounts and of other sites that are competitive with theirs.

3) You must submit submit your blog URL to blog directories. Let the search engine directories know that you and your blog exists. Submit to Google, Yahoo Open Directory Project (also known as Dmoz). These directories provides a credible link to your site. This will facilitate customers to find you faster.

4) Be different and create waves. Whatever you are selling, people will always put in their two sense about the product. Create dialogue by stirring the pot , so to speak. If more people participate in the dialogue, the likelihood of search engines picking it up increases. If people value your opinion then you will come across as an authority. Try this...it works.

5) Provide up to date information - make sure you update your blog as often as you can. Providing statistics, new techniques or any new information that you believe that your reader should know must be backed up. False or unsure information is an easy way top lose your audience.

6) Broadcast your updates. Use tools like Twitter, Aweber, Ping.fm and countless others to let the world know that you have something new to say and offer. Your loyal followers want to know.

Good luck

5 Tips to Improve Your Blog Readership

Let me share with you 5 tips to improve your blog readership. If you implement these 5 components in your blog, you will begin to see an improvement in the time the reader spends on your site.

1. Know Who Your Audience Is

Before you can begin any blog, you must understand who your audience is. What is in your reader's mind and what would attract him/her to your blog? It is not merely about presenting material but rather about offering information that is going to be of interest to the person who visits your blog. So it is not only about you but about what interests your reader. It is very important to come up with material that everybody can understand. This does not mean that your reader will necessarily relate to everything you say, but they will be able to understand it.

2. Make Your Blog Beneficial to the Reader

It is absolutely your choice to decide what subject matter you will write about on your blog. Yet, the best approach is to write about something that would be of interest and benefit to your reader. Today the internet is the primary way of conveying information around the world. It would therefore seem most appropriate to use this technology to provide useful information for the people who visit your blog.

3. Readers Love Visual Images

There is something about visual images that is very attractive to the human brain. This suggests that adding images will prove beneficial in attracting readers. However, this does not mean that you must post your own image on your site although many would suggest that adding a personal image may give you a more personal connection with the reader. It does however mean that any picture you post should not be insulting to any of your readership.

4. Keep Your Blogs Simple

In order to make your blog interesting and readable, don't try to use highly technical language. Your blog should not be a university treatise or debate, so keep it short and simple. Bear in mind that most people who use the Internet usually do more scanning than scrutinizing each site word for word. Therefore, it will be more profitable for you if you don't bore your readers with lengthy articles.

5. Interactivity will Keep Your Readers on Your Site

Interactivity is captivating. The more interactivity you have on your site, the longer people will remain. So make your blog interactive. Add video and audio clips to your site. Enable comments and feedback on your blog. In this way, you can get some impressions or reactions of other people. Who knows, you might even gain some friends just by making them feel at home on your blog.

A blog must have a purpose in today's internet world. It is useful tool and perhaps the best way for any aspiring writer to learn his/her craft. Therefore, for people who wish to harness their writing craft, blogs may be the best way to achieve this.

As they say, blogging is the contemporary term of creative and commercial writing.

7 Steps to a Search Engine Optimized Blog

If you are thinking about creating a blog, how to advice is always good to have. Here are my 7 steps to a search engine optimized blog:

1. Find a subject that you are knowledgeable about. Make a list of subjects and pick the one you know the most about. If you have a business, then you may want to write about it. If you are new to your business then writing about a hobby or interest is best.

2. Find a host for your blog. I like WordPress but there are others such as blogger.com, livejournal and thoughts.com. I recommend using your own website to host the blog rather than the free hosting. This will cost money but well worth it if you want the search engines to find your blog. If you are just blogging for fun, then the free hosting will be fine.

3. Once you create your blog setup, the next step is to add a post. I start with a keyword search tool such as Google AdWords. Then I think of a string of words (3 or more) and do a search. What you are looking for is many people searching for the words but not many people using those keywords. When you find a string of keywords that 4,000 - 10,000 people are searching for but only 50% or less are using these keywords, then write your post around those words. Use those words in your title and in the first paragraph (bolded). This is the hard part. Making your blog post make sense using those keywords. This is where your creativity comes in to play. You may not think you are creative, but you will be surprised when you put your mind to it.

4. Once you have created the blog post, send out an email to your list and let them know about your blog. I use Twitter but there are many social networking sites that you can use such as Facebook, My Space, Orkut, Linkedin, Tagged and so many more.

5. If you want the search engines to find your blog, post to your blog everyday. If that is not possible, then post at least 2 - 3 times per week. Search engines love fresh content, so the more you post, the higher you will rank in the search engines.

6. Now that you have completed steps 1 - 5, it is time to take your blog post and create an article. You may have to change it up a bit in order to follow the articles posting rules. I like Ezine Articles, Article Dashboard and Free Articles Directory. Once you have 3 articles posted, you will be considered an expert author and that will also help you with the search engines.

I also recommend Squidoo and Hubpages. These are single web pages with your articles on them.

7. The last thing I recommend is to visit other blogs and post a comment. Make sure you read the post and leave a sincere comment. Also, use the blog's keywords in your comment. This will provide links to other sites, another thing the search engines look for.

Blogging can be fun and also hard work. The more often you post, the quality of content and keywords you have in your post and the links to your post will determine how quickly the search engines find you. It does take time to get the "natural traffic" from blogging but it will be worth it in the end.
