TIPS FOR YOUR BLOG

Dear friends, while browsing about how to increase the number of visitors for my blog,I found the following fifteen Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Tips from Google’s Matt Cutts. Definitely I hope it’s worth reading if you want to increase your chances of getting Google love for your site:

  1. Check your blog on a cell phone.
  2. Make your post dates easy to find.
  3. Don’t put your blog at the root of your domain.
  4. Name your directory ‘blog’ instead of ‘wordpress’.
  5. If using AdSense, use section targeting.
  6. In URLs, no spaces are worst, underscore are better, dashes or hyphens are best.
  7. Include keywords naturally in your posts.
  8. Use alt tags on images: not only is it good accessibility, it’s good SEO.
  9. Blogs should do standard pings.
  10. Standardize backlinks (don’t mix www with non-www).
  11. Use a permanent redirect (301) when moving to a new host.
  12. Don’t include the post date in your URL.
  13. When moving between hosts, wait until Googlebot and traffic begin to visit the new host before taking down the old one.
  14. Use partial-text feeds if you want more page views; use full-text feeds if you want more loyal readers.
  15. Use FeedBurner’s MyBrand feature to take control of your feeds (i.e., feed.domain.com instead of http://feeds.feedburner.com/domain).
