Top 16 Most Effective Search Engine Optimization Tips – 2016

by guest author Feroz Syed

On-page Optimization
On-page optimization is directly from your own website –and a little forethought–, through the use of title tags, meta descriptions, keyword density and many other factors.

This can easily be used in your favor if you’re keeping up with your keyword research, and are ensuring sufficient volume is there.

If you wanted to find information about something, basically anything, chances are your first move is to look around on your chosen search engine for the website which will satisfy your curiosity the most. Hey, maybe that’s how you found us now!

But with every website vying for a moment in the spotlight, and viewers becoming more discerning between the value of various websites, the subtleties of search engine optimization has become crucial in ensuring your website’s visibility.

By reading through our handy infographic below, you can affect how your website is ranked by search engines and increase web traffic to your page– and if the two key areas of your site aren’t optimized to your audience, then you might as well show yourself off stage.

Off-page Optimization
Off-page optimization is the site awareness you are able to create, by creating listings, producing content and promoting your website in the public forum. This is all in the hopes of getting backlinks from other websites to your own–telling Google that you are a bit of a hot-shot in that industry or niche, so if people are looking up something relative to your market, then they are probably looking for you. This can include directory listings, social media, and blogs, although there are many more avenues.

Easy enough, right? By knowing how to use backlinks and content, you are already well on your way to being the bell of the SEO ball, read on to find more tips from the search engine pros in our awesome infographic below.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Robin,

  2. Carolann

    Hello Janice

    As always, you are spot on. Thanks a ton for the valuable advise. Here is my take:

    1. I am missing privacy policy and a detailed about me page.. will add that for sure.

    2. I am trying to be as much active as possible on social media.

    3. On page/off page optimization — work in progress

    Thanks for the post again..


  4. Shellie

    Great list, Janice. It’s nice to have something to look at to compare your process to.


    • Janice Wald

      Hi Shellie,
      Thanks for writing me. I agree. That’s the beauty of an infographic; it’s like a checklist.

  5. Julie Syl - Pit stop Crew

    That Infographic has laid an amazing array of things about SEO we need to know to get traffic in very clear terms.

    The only bits I would add are:
    Get publishing Regularly, build up your online real estate with Fresh Premium properties aka blog posts. To attract your target audience more.

    Distribute and Promote said content to get more engagement and of course attract more traffic. No need to be sat on PC for hours, use Automating tools 2 of which Janice kindly shared in another post.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Julie
      Thanks for writing. I am glad you liked my guest author’s infographic. I agree with your suggestions. They especially please me since I am already doing all you suggested. I had heard they help with SEO. I am glad you think so. Question for you about SEO since you suggested regular publishing. I am away for a month this summer. Should I preschedule one month worth of posts or take the month off since I can’t return comments? What do you think? Thanks!

    BBFFJ, I’ve been meaning to ask you about alt text. Do you describe what the pic looks like? Repeat any words on the pic??

    • Janice Wald

      Yes! I see you have a headline about a murdered mouse. If you want your article to be found at a search engine, what do you want people to look up to find you? Should they be searching for an article about a mouse? Then, “mouse” should be in your alt tag. Do you want them to find you by searching “humor”? Then “humor” should be in your alt. tag. They should also be in your headline, subheads, and appear early in your text.

      • Melinda Mitchell

        Okay, great! That really helps. I’ve been describing the pic, because I didn’t know. My blogging would be horrible without you!! Never leave me!!

  7. Charlotte

    These are so helpful! Thanks so much for sharing, we can always do with improving our page views – Good luck in The Pinterest Game! – Charlotte (Co-host)

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Charlotte,
      I wrote you on the pin to thank you for wishing me luck. My guest author made a doozy of an infographic. Maybe it will win. I love how you put me in suspense. Fun! Thanks for writing.

  8. Bun Karyudo

    It’s very helpful to have everything laid out diagrammatically like that. Infographics can sometimes make things so much clearer to follow and put everything in a form that’s easy to use.

  9. Moses Nueman

    I really appreciate you sharing this great post
    Have bookmarked your page, will read very often.
    What I observed in my 5 years of blogging career. If you focus more on building readership, writing excellent blog posts that are actually very useful to audience, your blog naturally ranks well.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Moses,
      Thank you so much for reaching out and writing me about my article. I am glad you found it useful. I try to regularly have SEO posts since so many readers find it confusing.
      In response to what you wrote, I have been blogging in my niche for about a year and a half. In that time, I have focused on building readership and writing excelling blog posts that are useful to audiences. However, I don’t know how I rank. I believe I have a decent Alexa score. However, when I go to Page Rank Checker, I am unable to find any data. Is it correct to assume I don’t rank?

      • Moses Nueman

        Hello Janice,

        Thanks for replying
        In March, 2016, it was reported that Google has officially killed Google PageRank for everyone outside of Google. So, maybe that’s the reason you are unable to analyse.
        The three main factors that you should now consider are Page Authority, Domain Authority & Trust Flow.
        Hope that answers your question 🙂

        • Janice Wald

          Hi Moses,
          Thank you for replying. I want to look at your blog, but the Internet where I am (on a cruise ship) keeps cutting out today, so I’d better reserve my Internet minutes which are not free.
          The bottom line is you are more knowledgeable about SEO than I am. That is why I have guest authors primarily do the SEO writing. I have blogged about SEO before, but my knowledgeable is limited compared to yours. For example,
          Page Authority– what is that (if my site ranks for a certain keyword)? Domain Authority– what is that? Trust flow– I have never heard of.
          1. If you’d like to guest post for us, you’d be welcome.
          2. If not, if you can answer my questions, I can link to you. In the last quarter of the year I plan on publishing a blogging glossary for people who are limited in their knowledge of terms like these. I can use your three answers and link to you as a source.
          Do you know why Google killed page rank? Thanks for all the information.
