Tags, Tags, Tags

Tags speak everything for SEO sometimes. You must be really good at choosing tags. Choose tags which are related to your posts and also very popular or common. For example, if I write about an car, I would tag it under “cars”,”brands”,”name-of-the-car”, not only these but, “mileage”,”smooth running car”,”new car”, etc.

Though your page does not has the search term, your page will be showed up in search engine if it has tag which matches the term . So, always choose a tag that is common or popular.

Use Images wherever possible

Use images in the posts wherever possible, and give alternative sensible names to the images  because images also drive a lot of traffic to the blog, if you post some appropriate image with right name, who knows, you may drive thousands to your site easily.

Ping back your previous articles,

If there is something you written already related to currently being written articles then you must mention them. Because, when you mention the articles again they get re-crawled and they get a bit boost of SEO, which is a good thing.

Keep up the posting frequency,

You must maintain the posting frequency, if you stop posting even for a week your blog may jump back to many pages behind. So, never miss an opportunity to post something on your blog.

Maintain originality

Original articles are found to be more focused and most easily reached. Powerful and unique articles are good way to attract users.
