SEO Wizards and Blog Site Innards

Today has been another day in the mystical magical land of the SEO Wizards poring over content, categorizing it and developing a new layout for this blog that will not only be more user friendly and valuable, but it will also be better optimized for SEO. You’ll see me progressively rolling it out over the next few weeks as this blog takes its new shape and form.

There are several key reasons for this change and they are worth noting especially in the post Panda Google updated world. If that goes over some ofgoogle-penguin-update your heads don’t sweat it you’ll understand all of it soon as I begin rolling out the first of the big changes on this blog.

The first reason for this change is to make everything on this blog more user friendly and interactive. There is a lot of content rich material on this website and having it better at users fingertips when they want it is a primary concern.

The second reason is a more content rich and user optimized experience is where the future of SEO is headed. Oh sure there are still black hat techniques out there that can be manipulated for results but a lot of the things you could do a year ago to get you ranked and rewarded will get you penalized today.

The trick today is to build a truly rewarding content rich and user optimized experience. Think of today’s SEO more as UEO or “user experience optimization.” You have to have excellent content as always, but you have to make the whole experience more user friendly for the visitor than it is for a search bot spidering your web.

Actually the truth in the matter is you need to do both. The difference today is there is more of a trend toward your users interaction as ranking factors that enhance or detract how you are scored based on the algorithms interpretation of their experiences.

How long are people staying on your site? How many pages are they viewing on your site, are they bookmarking or sharing your content? Do they quickly bounce from your page back to the search engine and then to another site or do they stay and find what they are looking for on your site. All of these metrics are monitored and determine how your rank in todays advanced search rankings. You can’t simply stuff your site with backlinks and think that will produce the results you want. It may for a week or two but then your rankings will plummet again.

And in the end I believe it is better for everyone. You should be building the best user experience possible for your visitors and you should be rewarded for that effort more so than writing unintelligible articles and plastering them to thousands of sites across the webisphere in an attempt to get you ranked better. That stuff use to get you ranked quickly and lastingly but it polluted the net with cyber-garbage that was of little use to consumers and people genuinely seeking good content and information.

So hang with me over the next several weeks as I roll out some changes that make this whole site friendlier and as usual continue to bring you excellent content and training.

What’s the deal with Anchor Text…

If you want top rankings for your content and websites you’ll need to be paying very close attention to the anchor text you use.

Anchor text is a critical portion of your SEO strategy and is critical for you to understand how to get the most bangs for your buck. If you are doing a lot of blog marketing and article marketing (and you should be) you want to get the most out of all your carefully crafted effort right?

Well if you are not taking advantage of anchor text you are missing out on a huge piece of the puzzle.

So what is anchor text:

Anchor text is the word text you use when you create a link to a website. I’m not talking about the URL here though that can be used also. What I am talking about is a text link. It is specific text that you have turned into a link in a piece of content.  Another common word for anchor text is what is called a “hyperlink.” It’s really nothing more than a word or phrase that links to another website.

Search engines look at these anchor text links that point to your site from other places on the web determine what that text is about and then rank your content as it pertains to that term. Whatever you use as anchor text linking back to your site or content is what you are telling Google your content is about.  Google looks at these links then checks your content to see if it is relevant and then begins ranking you for it.

So it goes almost without mentioning that if you want to rank higher for a specific keyword, then use it in your anchor text back-linking strategy. Just be sure not to overdo it and arouse the suspicious of the search engines. Search engines want everything to be a level playing field for everyone and they abhor SEO manipulations, so don’t get caught with your hands in the cookie jar so to speak.

The relevancy of the anchor text to your content on your page and on the page the link came from are also important mitigating factors as well. To learn more about relevancy and the principles that drive traffic and search engine rankings on the internet opt in for The 8 Day MLM Traffic and Business Video Seminar on my blog.

There are four principle types or classes of anchor text and each provides your content with a different level of value and each needs to be taken into account in formulating your anchor text strategy.

 

Here are the four Anchor Text types and their relative Value:

  • ”Exact Match” Text Anchor (Gold)
  • ”Broad Match” Anchor Text (Silver)
  • ”Commonly Match” Anchor Text (Bronze)
  • ”URL Anchor Text” (Runner up)

 

Exact Key Word Anchor Text links use the exact keywords you want to rank for in the search engines for that specific content. If you want to rank for a specific term then use that text as your link to the specific content. It’s rather simple really.

Broad Match Anchor Text is relevant anchor text but it is not as specific as the number one term you want to rank for. For example: If you wanted to rank for MLM Tips and that would be your “Exact Match” term, then what other terms are related that get the same type traffic that you would benefit from as well? Terms like MLM help, MLM advice, Network Marketing advice, etc. This is the essence of a broad match term.

Common used anchor text includes “click here”, “here”, “website” etc. They are not thrilling terms and won’t get fired up to rank for these terms but they have their place never the less in keeping your link strategy looking natural and not manipulated by SEO strategies.

This is important because you don’t want to attract undue attention from the search engines by overpowering your link blueprint with unnatural SEO manipulated fingerprints that spell trouble for you.

Plain old URL anchor text type is the last anchor text type, and this  is really nothing more than a URL to link to your website with i.e. http://website.com, no anchor text.

So Why Does all This Matter So Much:

Because in this day and age there isn’t a way to rank well for any highly competitive keywords without heavy link building involved. Indeed there are ways to over-rev this engine and get you faster rankings by ignoring the redline on the primary keyword tach, but it comes with a price. Anchor text leaves the biggest footprint for Google to find and penalize you for if you are not smart about things.

So you must use a wide variety of anchor text types in a natural looking ratio for Google to pass over your site without you eventually getting spanked.

My credible expert mentors suggest the following ratio for lasting search engine positions and rank:

■50% Primary Keyword Anchor Text

 ■30% Relevant Keywords Anchor Text

 ■10% Generic (click here, website etc.) Keywords

 ■10% URL No Anchor Text

 

This should give you enough exact keyword anchor text gas to get you the rankings you desire without blowing your search engine up.

Tag and Ping for MLM Blog Success

Tag and Ping,Social Bookmarking, etc the positive effects of social bookmarking for MLM blog success and  for other web sites are outstanding. Social bookmarking can introduce the sites that you own or you like to others with the right targeted interests and tastes,it can drive traffic to your site, and create valuable backlinks to your content like flies swarm to stink.

What is Tag and Ping:

Basically it is a powerful strategy employing bookmarking to acquire traffic and backlinks to your site. And so naturally to understand this strategy you first have to have a working knowledge of what bookmarking is.

Bookmarking is:

  • Bookmarking is the collective act of sharing links (aka tags) and resources by the internet community.
  • Social Bookmarking sites include Technorati, Furl, Deli.icio.us, Flickr, and 100’s more.

 

  1. Users are controlling the flow of traffic and backlinks more and more through the use of these sites and their applications.
  2. Social Bookmarking in general has a viral traffic generating effect.

Example:

For instance if you were to go and register for a Del.icio.us account you would have access to your own page where you can store bookmarks (your links) to your favorite internet sites and resources. What’s interesting to note, is when you do this this bookmark also get syndicated (it gets posted elsewhere as well). It will appear on one of Del.icio.us’ tag pages.

All other Del.icio.us users who see this tag page may then check out your links and decide whether they want to add it to their pages which will increase the popularity of that specific bookmark causing it to rank and post higher.

The higher it ranks in popularity the greater the chance others will see, use, and adapt this bookmark as their own. Such is the viral nature of bookmarks. As long as your content that you are linking to is bookmark worthy, your links should increase in popularity in a viral fashion. Your MLM blog traffic goes through the roof as a result.

Tags are:

Tags… (once again we are using the Del.icio.us site as our example) are really nothing more than a keyword you assign to the link. It is a way to organize your links and keep track of them.

For example if you had links about gardening and links about cooking you could organize all your gardening links by assigning them the tag “gardening” and your cooking links the tag “cooking” all your links for each subject would be organized and found under the accompanying tag name. So if you clicked the tag “cooking” in your account then all the links that have to do with cooking come up. It’s pretty simple really.

Tag and Ping with your Blog:

With your WordPress Blog you will create tags for your posts. A tag is really nothing more than a specially formatted link that you place in your blog. After you tag your posts and post them on your blog you want to ping the social bookmark sites.

A ping is basically a short instruction that is sent out from your blog and tells a site such as a search engine or a social bookmark index site like Technorati, Icerocket, etc. to come to your site and check out your content crawl through your site find the tags index them and update their sites. In other word a computer spiders you site finds your tags and content and then updates the tag pages on the site for their users to see and use.

It’s another instant back link from an authority site of valued popularity ranking. Because these bookmarking sites are so popular and because they offer such excellent user data about sites, keywords, tags, and their popularity, the big search engines regularly spider these social bookmark sites for data. When they do they find links to your sites and follow them. Are you starting to see the power here?

Setting up Your Ping List:

To set up a WordPress ping list, go to “Settings”, and then click “Writing.” Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see an “Update Services” box that will allow you to add your ping list. You will want to add all of the social bookmark sites that accept and that crawl blog posts.

http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping

 

You can create all your tag URLs by hand but why bother. If you are using WordPress and you should be, your blog to do this automatically for you. You want to go to your plugins and get SimpleTags. SimpleTags allows you to easily generate Technorati tags that work for both Tecnorati and Icerocket.

Setting up Tag and Ping:

Do some keyword research or even some tag research on some of the social bookmark sites and find words about your website pages and contents that will make for good tagging and pinging and gain you the greatest MLM Blog success.

 

This is how to tag and ping in WordPress:

1. Create your content.

 2. Add relevant “tags” at the end of your blog post with simple tags.

 3. Publish your blog post.

 4. Ping social bookmarking sites. Your blogs ping list does this automatically or you can use www.pingdevice.com

 5. When you have finished, the social bookmarking sites will then crawl your blog post and index it under the tags that you have specified. Social bookmarking sites are heavily spidered, so your pages will be quickly spidered by the major search engines simply by being present in the index.

 

Making Sure that Technorati and Icerocket Pick Up Your Tags:

  • You will need to register your blog with Icerocket and Technorati go to their websites and regester.

Here are a few simple yet powerful things you can do to promote your blog and begin growing a dedicated populace of avid readers and followers:

 

 email1. Email Market Your MLM Blog:

 

 This is surely the most important thing you can do to grow your blog. Building an email list of your blog subscribers has countless benefits.

 

You’ll want to email your list every time you publish a new MLM blog post and you can use Aweber to handle this feature for you by automatically broadcasting your blog to your email subscribers every time you post.

Also be sure and include some kind of offer and opt-in form on your blog to capture readers of your blogs information and add them to your email list.

 

2. Cultivate and Encourage Community:

Creating a community is what every blogger aspires to achieve. We all want our readers to start commenting, sharing and raving about our blog-posts and the training communitythey receive from us.

 

One of the best ways out there to attract comments and the kind of readership that gets you shared, liked, commented on, etc. is to seek out and stalk people already commenting on blogs in your niche.

Find established blogs in your niche, and then tap into some of their community by commenting on posts that other followers are already commenting on.

If these active followers who are already creating social action on these websites like your comments and content, they will checkout your MLM blog, and they will most likely subscribe to or at the least begin to comment on the content on your blog.

Once you’re getting leads and building your list via your opt-in form on your blog or through your other sales funnel capture pages, you need to make personal connections with these people. Call them if you can, add them on your social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. at the very least.

 

Basically, the more places you connect with others the more exposure you get.

Your new content is now showing up on Twitter, Facebook, etc. and you’re emailing every new post to your subscribers. Your latest commentary is now in their inbox, Facebook wall, and Twitter feed. You are starting to command some pretty substantial real estate in your followers web space, and it becomes all the more likely they will begin to read your posts, comment, like, respond to your request, etc.
