3 Super Simple SEO Solutions For 2012 A powerful message from Erica!!
The 24th of April saw the death roll of many SEO webmasters. What killed them? Well the Panda update came first with a left hook and then a little Penguin knocked them out with an upper cut that everyone should have seen coming.
If this all sounds way too confusing, don’t worry. All it means is that now YOU, who have been playing an honest game of writing high quality, value packed, user friendly pieces of content now have a fairer chance to win the fight of ranking in the search engines.
You see, up until now it’s been an industry standard to gain top rankings for content by spinning an original article using software that in some cases has content reading like a Chinese children’s book.
Google’s new algorithm has been designed to catch web spamming and promote genuine high quality content.
So what are the new SEO Solutions for 2012? Simple – stay real, stay on point, and create high quality content that enriches your reader’s world.
Here’s 3 Super Simple SEO Solutions that work!
1. Blog commenting on high Page Rank sites
I can’t tell you how many times I have had people reach out to me because they saw a comment of mine on someone else’s high page rank authority site.
When you leave well thought out comments on high traffic authority sites this creates an original backlink for you and allows other people to learn about you and your site.
Your comments need to be meaningful and add value.
2. Create high quality, unique articles and post to directories
Believe me when I say this, if you choose to write fresh content, you will stand out in today’s online world. Google is desperate to maintain the integrity of it’s search engines and give it’s readers exactly what they are looking for.
So with this in mind, create high quality, unique articles and submit them to article directories such as EzineArticles and ArticleBase.
The beauty of this is that your content will be posted on high traffic, authority sites that have the potential to send you unlimited amounts of targeted traffic.
Get your keyword research right, give your readers high value content and everyone will be happy. Especially Google.
Don’t include a ton of tacky backlinks in your article to your site. Instead create a backlink in the Author Resource Box and inspire a compelling reason for them to visit your site.
3. Build manual Web 2.0′s
This is time consuming, but well worth it.
Create unique content and post it on Squidoo, Blogger, Hubpages, WordPress.com etc and have all posts linking back to your site. The idea is to generate targeted traffic back to your site. The more original and fresh it is, the more chance you have of ranking well.
