10 Amazing Tips to Improve the SEO of Your Site

by Hemant Kumar

So you have a blog, that’s amazing :D.

Of course, you must be trying your best to rank your blog on the top of search engines like Google etc.

And you know that to rank you blog on search engines you have to improve the SEO of your blog. That’s why you are here ☺

So today in this post, I’m here to tell you some useful SEO strategies on how to increase Google ranking for free, so just keep calm and read this post till the very end and I’m sure it will not let you down.

So let’s directly come to the point:

Just follow the tips below to get better Google search results quickly:

 

  • Write Quality Content

 

Don’t write any content if you don’t have much time because if you are writing just a short content like about 400-500 words then don’t even write because you have to write deep content. Long-form content ranks higher on search engines more than posts with short content.

You can do a quick search now, just go to Google and search anything. You can see that the top ranking contents have more than 1000-2000 words (I’m not talking about 100% of top ranking posts but most of them).

The main motto is to keep that visitor on your site as long as you can, the visitor should not leave your site instantly. So to make this sure you have to write interesting posts and attention grabbing images also.  

But this doesn’t mean that you just have to write content about 2500-3000 words and that’s all, you will have to write a useful content which can help people. If you write boring content, then no one will read it.

Write to help the kid out there who is searching for his problems and if you are able to help him through your content then you are writing a good article. Just keep writing and you will get your results soon. ☺

  • Publish content uniformly

 

It’s good to publish content on your website but try to publish your content uniformly.

If you are posting any post non-uniformly, then it will not help that much to improve Google search results for your site. Avoid these weak SEO techniques. So fix some days in a week on which you can publish your content. For example, I publish content on every Tuesday and Friday. This will help your site a lot to rank on the top of search engines.

 

  • Do proper Keyword Research

 

Make sure to do keyword research like a professional. You should use online long-tail keyword tools like Google keyword planner tool to find long-tail keywords.

Try to get some long tail keywords, again use some long tail keyword proving tools like Longtailpro etc.

Now once you have a list of proper keywords, use them in your content as much as you can. But don’t overload your content with keywords because it can harm your site.  

  • You should write SEO-friendly content with these keywords.
  • Use keywords in your permalink
  • Use keywords in subheadings like h2,h3 tags.
  • Use keywords in the meta description.
  • Use keywords in image alt tag and name also.

Try to Bold, Italic, or Underline your keywords.  

That’s all. If you follow the above SEO techniques, then your post is fully SEO-optimized:-D.

  • Quality Backlinks

 

Don’t make backlinks for your website if they are not quality backlinks. Quality backlinks are one of the awesome SEO techniques that will boost the SEO of your site.

Don’t forget that bad links will harm your site and will drop the ranking of your site.

For God’s sake, don’t even try to use any tool to create backlinks because all these backlink generator tools will boost spam score of your site instead of SEO.

Try to get backlinks on keywords, these are more powerful than any simply written link like http://www…..

 

  • Optimize the loading speed of your site

 

Ranking of your site directly depends on the loading speed of your site. If your site is taking too much time in loading, then it will drop down your SEO. No one has that much time and patience because they have lots of more options on the internet other than your site.

There are so many ways to improve your page loading speed instantly like by disabling the cache of your site and by optimizing the images of your site.  You can search on Google and learn a lot on this.

 

  • Optimize your images  

 

We all know how many images are necessary for our post. A post without images really sounds boring. We should add quality images in our post but don’t use big size images.

Compress your images before uploading it. There are lots of image compression tools available on the internet. You can use them like Compression.io ☺

And the most important is that make sure to use ALT tags with the name of your image your keyword.

Use keywords in the name and alt tags of your images. This will help your image to rank high on Google.

 

  • Proper H1,H2,H3 tags

 

Please try your best to make your content interesting, not boring.

Break your content into paragraphs. Use proper heading tags while making new subheadings. For example, write a few headings with h2 tags and a few with h3 tags.

Make sure to use keywords in your subheadings.  Try to use long tail keywords in your h2 and h3 subheadings.

 

  • Readability

 

Check the readability of your content with free readability checker tools like the readability test tool.

If your content readability is higher, then it will rank higher and the reader will read it fully, but if your content is having lots of grammatical errors then no one will read it and leave your site instantly.

So make sure to write your post easy to read and don’t ignore the readability score of your post.

 

  • Internal Linking

 

Internal linking is also important like external linking is, but many bloggers ignore internal linking. They don’t know the power of internal linking. Add links to your previous posts in your new post with keywords. This will connect your website pages more dynamically and will help your site to rank better on search engines.  

 

  • Responsive template

 

As must have heard about mobile friendly or responsive:

Make sure to make your website mobile friendly.

But if you are not a good enough coder to code a site, then you should choose a free responsive template and use that instead of a nonresponsive template. This will really help your blog to increase your SEO ranking for free.

 

That’s all for today ☺

Now you have successfully learned how to increase your Google ranking for free and how to improve the SEO of your website, but if you are still having any doubts with SEO techniques, then please feel free to comment below. It will be my honor to help you out. ☺

 

Thank you ☺

  1. Ellen Pilch

    Very interesting. I always write short content because I know how much I hate reading long posts. I follow over 100 blogs so I don’t have time to read the long ones and I would think many would have the same problem.

    • Hemant Kumar

      Hey Ellen,
      Thanks for commenting here. Ya I agree with you reading long posts irritates but not every time. It depends on your writing pattern.
      Long post approx more then 1000 words rank faster then 500 word post.

    • Janice Wald

      I try to give many subheads so people who don’t like reading long posts can scan the subheads. If they find a section where they want more information, they have the option of only reading those details.

    such a great article for new blogger like us. thanks a lot for sharing this. keep it up and post most for us.

    • Hemant Kumar

      Hey there,
      Thanks for your comment it means a lot for me.
      Have a nice day 🙂

  3. Rebecca Forstadt Olkowski

    I think the length of your post depends on your particular audience and niche. I tend to write anywhere from 600 – 1200 words. The Yoast SEO plugin for WordPress is essential and now checks the post’s readability. I was a little confused on “disabling” the cache. Usually, you enable it for speed. I love WP Rocket for that.

    • Hemant Kumar

      Hey Rebecca Mam,
      Thanks for your comment.
      Ya I also like QP Rocket and yeah 1000 word post is good starting to rank it on Google.
      Have a nice day mam ?

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Rebecca,
      Thanks for writing. I am not familiar with WordPress Rocket. What is it?

    • Hemant Kumar

      Hey GiGi,
      Ya optimizing images is really important with which we can get lots of traffic.
      Thanks for your time and have a great day ?

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Gigi,
      While I get traffic from Pinterest, I don’t know if I’ve ever received traffic from Google Images. Any tips? Thanks for writing.

  5. Gaurav Verma

    @hemant, great article bro. You desribe some most important point of on page seo. Mostly beginner blog does not optmize his site for SEO and doest not care readability score. Readability score play major role in search engine rankin

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Gaurav,
      I never paid much attention to my readability score. Thanks for writing and stressing its importance.
      Janice

    • Hemant kumar

      Hey Gaurav,
      Thank you so much for your comment here ☺
      Ya on page SEO is really important for bloggers andi agree with you, readability score contributes on search engine rankings.
      Thanks once again for your valuable comment ?

  6. Gaurav Verma

    @hemant , this article is perfet for beginer who want to optimize his site for seo

  7. Tracey

    Is there a reason why you make almost every sentence it’s own paragraph? Is there a reason for doing this from an SEO standpoint?

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Tracey,
      I believe readability is easier. I read paragraphs in a blog post should be between 1 and 3 sentences long. The opening of the post, at the beginning of the introduction, especially.
      An SEO standpoint? I will ask the author to come answer the question.
      Janice

    • Hemant kumar

      Hey Tracey,
      Ya writing up every point in its own small paragraph boosts up readability otherwise writing up long paragraph makes post boring and no one will read it.
      Ya I’m agree with you Janice mam its helpful with SEO point of view.
      Thanks for your comment ?
      Have a nice day !

  8. Hansoftech

    Hi! Hemant, Thank you for writing this Interesting and useful article about increasing traffic to a website. Agree with responsive design of the website is necessary as most of the people use mobile and tablets for search. Page speed optimization is also a crucial factor to provide best user experience and reduces the bounce rate. Know why you need to improve your website speed

  9. Robbie Cheadle

    I don’t write very long blog posts. It should not be necessary as you should be able to summarise your main points and objectives into approximately 600 words. I often find that long posts are just long winded and you can actually miss the main points because of all the “noise”. When I write for publications, they always give a maximum word count of 1 200 words.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Robbie,
      A maximum count of 1200 words? I’ve written for publications that require a minimum of 1500 words! I believed that was when I guest posted on some big blogs. When I wrote for Lifehack, they asked for a minimum of 600. Thanks for writing.
      Janice

      • Robbie Cheadle

        Thanks for replying, Janice. I probably depends on the publisher. I write articles for business publications and I think they like to keep things to the point. I would assume that literary magazines would be more generous in their maximum word allowances.

  10. Susan Velez

    Hi Hermant,

    These are some great SEO tips. While I don’t focus 100% on SEO like I used to in the past, I know how important it is to make sure your blog is properly optimized for the best rankings.

    My posts are usually around 1,000 – 1,500 words long. Unless I am writing a how to tutorial, those posts are usually a lot longer.

    I try to make sure that my posts are at least 1,000 words long. I know that the shorter posts won’t do anymore like they used to in the past.

    However, when I do write my posts, I always proofread it to make sure that I just didn’t add a bunch of filler information to try to get the word count up 🙂

    Thanks for sharing these tips, I know they’ll definitely help so many bloggers improve their SEO.

    Have a great day 🙂

    Susan

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Susan,
      Thanks for writing. Another reader just wrote she intentionally keeps her word count on the low side since she’s so concerned about “filler.” My posts are on the long side but I don’t think I write “filler.” Thanks for commenting.
      Janice

  11. Pankaj Dhawan

    Hello Janice,

    Even I advise the same to my audience and everyone interested in getting higher ranks. Optimizing page-speed, creating long content always help boosting ranksing.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Pankaj,
      Thanks for writing. Have you been reading these other comments? Post length is being highly debated. Some say the shorter the better to avoid “filler.” I’m with you– I agree long content has a greater chance of getting ranked.
      Janice

      • Pankaj Dhawan

        Well,

        I know for fact that Brian Dean who has skyrocketed his Backlinko in short time to top using massive posts. Same has been achieved by Neil Patel from QuickSprout.
        I would go with them instead of going otherwise.
        So yes, I am on the same page with you here.

        • Janice Wald

          On this post, someone cited Michael Hyatt who insists keeping posts short– 500 words or something like that. I felt in a tight spot. He’s famous. Who am I to contradict Michael Hyatt? Yet, I agree with you. I read Patel. He insists long posts are the way to go.
          Janice

  12. Eugenia

    Great information and thank you for sharing. I don’t care for long posts as a norm. It depends on the content. I enjoy posts with short paragraphs, short sentences and breaks throughout the post. Your post is a great example of what I like.

    Also, the font is important. I don’t like to strain my eyes to be able to read the post. Fonts and background are important.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Eugenia,
      I don’t know if you read some of the comments that came in before yours. Someone could not understand why I make my paragraphs so short. It definitely enhances readability. Thanks for writing with the validation. Your comments make a nice testimonial that I’m making my posts easy for people to read. Thank you!
      Janice

      • Eugenia

        You are quite welcome. Janice. I feel the structure of the post can be as important as the content. If I see a long post with long sentences and paragraphs, and no breaks, I pass it by.

        The content may be outstanding but I don’t have the time nor the patience to read it. Plus a lot of us are using a device for our reading, whether business or pleasure. It’s difficult to read long content on a device, IMO.

        • Janice Wald

          Hi Eugenia,
          I agree with what you wrote. Many people think content is all that matters no matter the length or the formatting. I agree with you. People are too busy to try to understand a bunch of text.

    I stopped focusing on SEO and keywords for my site because it could be confusing and tiring. You will spend hours searching for a long tail keyword, spend hours trying to get a good article headline. You will also now start writing to suit your keyword so it could appear a few times. It’s exhausting and I looked at some big sites that post lots of articles and I doubt if they actually go through this stress of SEO and keywords… I’m still searching for a good reason to start seo and keyword hurting back

    • Janice Wald

      You don’t think those big blogs have staffs do their SEO research for them? That’s what I assumed.
      Janice

      • Ifedapo

        Yes, that’s what I thought but looking at their headlines sometimes It says otherwise. So I concluded maybe the seo staffs works on backlinks. Just my thought because have read lots of articles about seo and keywords and have researched a lot

          • Ifedapo

            well, i really want to improve my site just that i am at the cross roads and everything is making me lose my mind. whats your advice?

          • Janice Wald

            Actually, I am blogging about this topic this Saturday! In the meantime, this is a checklist for what to do after publishing. Stay regimented and follow checklists. That’s what I do. It was fun chatting with you today. Off to bed. 1:00 am here.
            Janice

  15. Ifedapo

    ok good night Janice, have a wonderful nice rest. maybe in the morning pls tell me the plugin you are using for this floating social bar icon and is it free? thanks for the help

  16. Donna Harvey

    Thanks Hermant, that was a good article, I learned a lot, and now have a lot of homework to do. I do use Yoast SEO, it checks Readability and SEO while your writing. It gives you a red check for Bad and Green for good, it also gives you help on what to change. Work’s great for me. I do agree with Janice, on longer Posts. I think if your explaining a subject, you should tell your readers everything they wanted to know, that’s why they came to your site, you don’t want them to go elsewhere. I also agree that you should use Subheadings. I breaks up the writing, makes it easier for them to find what they are looking for, and they will be able to find where they left off if they have to return later. Now I’m looking forward to your Post on Saturday Janice, you know the one for those of us that are losing our minds over Blogging. Thanks You all, Donna

    • Janice Wald

      I so appreciated your comments, Donna. Your comments reinforced my feeling that blogging tips are for bloggers of all levels, not just new bloggers. I will be linking to you in Saturday’s post. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I love getting ideas on the subject… some of them I do, others I need to work on much more… and some of them are new to me. Thank you for the practical advice. 🙂

      Hi Gentle Joy,

    I really love to read your blog as well as the examples that you’ve mention. Thank you so much for this helpful contents. I am looking forward to see more example contents like this.If you have time you can also visit this site that I managed to surf in business startups.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Zee,
      Thank you for your kind words and your interest in my blog. I don’t understand why I’m having trouble signing you up. Perhaps you can put a different email in one of the email boxes on my site. I mentioned in an earlier comment there is one at the top of the right sidebar. All you’d have to do is activate the link in your email.
      I did visit your site. I commented on the post.
      Janice

  19. Donna

    Great tips in easy terms, thank you for sharing! I’m always trying to get my blog seen more and some posts are so drawn out and difficult to understand.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Donna,
      Thank you for writing. I agree my guest author made his post easy to understand. Your compliments are appreciated.
      Janice

  20. Zee

    Excellent web site! I truly really like how it really is easy on my eyes it truly is. I’m wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I’ve subscribed to your feed which could do the trick? Have a nice day!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Zee,
      Thank you for the kind words about my blog. Since you expressed interest about getting notified of my posts, I tried to add you to my email list, but I received a message that said you were already subscribed! When I went to search to see the date you subscribed, it said you weren’t subscribed at all! Strange, so I contacted my tech helper.
      Another option you can try is going to my home page at MostlyBlogging.com. At the top of the right sidebar, it says “Subscribe to blog via Email”. Put your email in that and then click the activation link you get in your email. That would be great. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

    I don’t write very long blog posts. It should not be necessary as you should be able to summarise your main points and objectives into approximately 600 words

    Thanks for the sharing

    I just read your article about SEO! thanks for all the tips. I do agree about the long posts as it keeps the reader on the page longer but definitely it does depend on the content itself. As long as it is quality content that keeps the reader want to read the other posts, I think that’s a win-win!

    Will be keeping these tips in mind, thanks!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Hoppie,
      Thanks for all your support today (still Saturday here). I know you visited a few of my articles today. I agree with what you wrote. Content has to be quality and long. If people just stuff words as filler, anyone would be bored or consider the post redundant. You raise some good points. Thanks again for writing me today.
      Janice

  25. Arvind

    i thinks even 500 words article can rank better than 1000 words, if the article give all the specific information using LSI keywords ..lengthy article with no specific data fail to rank in search engine..!!!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Arvind,
      I think you’re correct. My Niume article ranks on Page 1 and it certainly isn’t 2,000 words. However, I read our posts should be a minimum of 2,000 words to make Google happy, so I am trying to make my posts longer. We’ll see.
      Janice

  26. John Marc Ramirez
