Advanced Keyword Optimization – Utilizing Keyword Patterns

December 5, 2008

When you’re choosing the keywords your website will target you should always bear in mind the adage “less is more”. Sometimes selecting the keyword that will bring you the most traffic is not always the best option, in fact if you have a new website it could be a big mistake. Also, if you optimize your website for just one keyword, not only are you narrowing your market but you’re also waving a big flag to the search engines saying, “Please Penalize Me”. Remember, search engines don’t like SEO – they don’t like the idea of people manipulating the results. If you target only one keyword it will be very obvious that you are performing SEO on your website and chances are you’ll be penalized as a result.

If you have a new website then the chances are your website will be “sandboxed” for eight months for any popular keywords. So if you target your website solely for the most popular keyword then a) your website won’t even appear in Google’s search results (due to being sandboxed) and b) the competition for such a popular keyword will be very tough so getting a good ranking will be difficult. It is always better to have some traffic as supposed to no traffic.

The key to successful keyword optimization is to optimize your pages for a relevant keyword pattern, not just a single keyphrase. So how do we decide upon these ‘Keyword Patterns’? Lets assume you want to rank highly for the terms “Debt” and “Consolidation Loan” – both of which are highly competitive terms as these keywords generate the most traffic. How would I combine these to maximize my success using a single pattern on a single page? Easy, I combine the unique patterns into one: “Debt Consolidation Loans Lender”.

These important pattern words should be used in my title, in my description, in my keyword phrases, and in my body text. Using a combination of this phrase in some form within the title/meta tags is good because they are the most competitive for the industry I have chosen and require prominence in my site.

So I now have the potential to rank well for a wide variety of phrases such as Debt, Debt Lender, Consolidation Loan, Consolidation Loans, Consolidation Lender, Debt Loan, Debt Loan, Debt Loans Lender…. and any other combinations of these phrases that you (or people using the search engines) can string together.

So now what we need to do is create page content and an internal linking structure that will compliment my keyword patterns. Remember, I’m not targeting the phrase “Debt Consolidation Loans Lender”, but different variations of the words that make up this phrase, so all I need to do is create pages that are optimized to contain these words. Because I’m not targeting one specific phrase there is no chance of the website appearing to be “spammy”. Instead, it will make my website appear to be entirely natural to the search engines without any blatant SEO taking place. To do this I must create pages that contain a mixture of these words in the Title, Meta keyword/description tags and the body of the page and also in the anchor text that I use in my internal linking. This will ensure my website is extremely well optimized for any combination of my keyword pattern. In many instances, simply having a good linking structure and well-written content will be enough to get a good ranking for some niche keywords that will bring traffic to your website.

Keyword patterning should not only take place on-page, it should also be off-page as well, primarily in the anchor text of the links that point to your website. As I’ve already said, the search engines don’t like SEO, they want natural results, so if they see that 90% of all anchor text is exactly the same, e.g. “debt consolidation” then it’s pretty obvious SEO is taken place.

So, just as you’ve done with the text on your pages, you need to vary the anchor text of your backlinks using different variations of your keyword pattern. So for example we could use these different anchor texts for our backlinks:

Debt Lender,
Debt Management
Consolidation Loan,
Consolidation Loans,
Consolidation Lender,
Debt Loan,
Debt Loan,
Debt Loans Lender
… Etc. Etc.

and we’d still be targeting our initial key phrases of “Debt” but also our secondary patterns of “lender”, “loans”, “debt lender”, “debt management”, “consolidation loans”, “debt loan”. These are natural patterns that you would expect a website to receive from natural linking and are extremely powerful for getting better search engine results. Ideally, try to create a different, unique anchor text variation for every link you create that will point to your website.

By applying natural linking to your web pages you will avoid many of the pitfalls that websites often fall in to, such as, “why am I ranked 384th when I am 1st for allinanchor?”, the reason – unnatural linking, the solution: linking patterns. The reason why a particular website might rank at #1 for a variety of popular search terms is not just a fluke, it’s because they use keyword patterns extensively when optimizing their website.

Forums are vital avenues that you can use to market your business. They are essential in increasing back links and generating visitor traffic for your website.

Forum SEO builds an atmosphere of creative undertaking. Here, you can find opinions and recommendations from authorities and specialists regarding any problem or concern that you may have. Choose forums that are dynamic and build huge connections. This will be determined by the standing of the website.

Posting in forum SEO requires consideration of certain factors. Make sure that you understand the terms and conditions of the forum before you post. There are general guidelines that should be followed when posting. It is good practice to introduce yourself before actively posting and joining discussions with other members. You establish your credibility as the number of your posts increase.

In forum SEO, it is important to choose relevant and related posts with the chosen category since not doing so may result to you getting banned or blocked by the forum moderators. You can include a link to your website in your signature but be aware of the limit in the number of words for signatures. Aside from that, you should avoid starting a new thread for a topic that is already in the forum. Your thread will be stopped as the moderator avoids duplicate threads.

It is a must in forum SEO not to submit foul, annoying, or taunting comments in the forums. It destroys the healthy discussion atmosphere. Similarly, avoid making humorous comments as it will veer away from the serious nature of the topics. As much as possible, give a topic that can initiate more participation. This will motivate other members to join in your forum thread and enhance the length of your thread.

Keeping these considerations in mind will help you take advantage of forum SEO for promoting your business venture.

SEO: How to Promote Your Web Site with Freebies

December 3, 2008

Most webmasters keen on SEO or search engine optimization have made their web sites to make money. Unfortunately their work is made extra hard due to a unique feature that prevails in Internet culture: expecting to get things for free.

So yes, the bad news there is unless your web site offers freebies, your visitors won’t care for your site much no matter what SEO you do. But the good news is that if you DO offer freebies, you will surely attract more visitors.

Here’s how:

There are all kinds of freebies you can give away to increase web site traffic. Among others, you can offer free ebooks, mp3 files, videos, software, articles and question-and-answer or consultation services. It all depends on the kind of internet business you do. And, as always with web design, you must apply the rules of SEO when using them.

Here are some SEO techniques to use on different kinds of web site freebies:

SEO with Freebies Technique #1: Give the files away for free download and reproduction. Sure, you’re giving it away. But if you ask them to ask permission for you first, it will only take up more precious time. Not all webmasters would bother with that. Just make sure that you use every means of copy-protection for the medium/file you’re using. For example, if it’s an Adobe Acrobat PDF file, make sure you disable copying and modifying. You may or may not disable printing. (In our opinion you shouldn’t; this is site promotion so be nice!)

SEO with Freebies Technique #2: Always include your full web site URL and/or e-mail address and other contact info such as ISBN (if this is a book), office address (if it’s a consultation service, etc) or signature and so on. If possible, include a link back to your site on every page footer or the front page at least. Invite the user to go there “for more free stuff.” Take our word for it, they will. 🙂 Just be sure these are LIVE links that can be clicked on. Commercial PDF software and some freeware let you do this.

SEO with Freebies Technique #3: Make a separate and comprehensive free downloads page full of choice keywords. A free downloads page may be your best bet for a top page ranking in Google and Yahoo and others. When faced with a choice of several web sites in a search result, people will choose the one with “free” in it more often than not. Make sure you DO include the word “free” in the page title.

SEO with Freebies Technique #4: Give people reason to buy your services or goods. After all, the reason why you’re giving away freebies is you want to top the page rankings and sell your web site. So while you do give them a healthy amount of useful free stuff, don’t give too much away. Let them have a taste of what you have to offer, and hint at the rest. On the other hand, don’t insult people by giving too little. That’s a sure bet to turn them off.

A good balance is a fully-functional free software (as opposed to crippleware) that comes bundled with a demo of a pro version of the same software. Freeware that never expires and doesn’t cheat its users can win you a loyal following, and the serious ones will buy the pro version to support you.

Like it or not, “free” is the magic word on the Web, and always will be. Use this word wisely and people will actually pay for your stuff! Good luck!

Anchor Text – The Most Import Factor of SEO

December 2, 2008

Many moons ago Google PageRank (PR) was the most important aspect of SEO, not any more, in fact it now counts for very little and is seen as somewhat of a gimmick to the experienced webmaster. By far the most important aspect of modern-day SEO is anchor text found in the backlinks to your website (a backlink is an incoming link). Anchor text is the clickable text that is displayed for a particular link. For example this link:

Google Search Engine

links to http://www.google.com and has the anchor text “Google Search Engine”. When you get links to your website you should always try to get your targeted keyword or keyphrase in the anchor text. This is an incredibly important factor used by search engines when generating the result pages.

Analyzing The Competition
Wouldn’t it be useful to see how many of your backlinks or your competitor’s backlinks contain the keyword you are targeting so you have some idea of how many links you need to over take them in the results? Well, you can!

To do this you can use WebLink SEO which has a backlink analysis tool. This tool works by finding the anchor text of all of the backlinks that point to a particular website. You can then see how many of the backlinks contain the keyword you are targeting. Then all you need to do is work on getting more links with your keyword in than they do, and you’ll overtake them in the result pages!

For example let’s say I run a website about business management and I want to get to the #1 position in Google for the term “business management ”. I want to find out how many backlinks the website listed in first position Google has that contains the word “business” and “management” in the anchor text.

Search Engine Optimizing Press Releases

December 1, 2008

It is becoming common knowledge that a website that expects to get the most out of its search engine results must search engine optimize its content in order to achieve the highest possible ranking. What is not as well known is that website content isn’t the only type of writing that can be search engine optimized to produce a favorable outcome for your website.

As a part of your marketing strategy, you will likely have include the distribution of press releases in order to let people know about the latest events and movements of your business or website. What you need to recognize is the fact that this is also one of your best opportunities to employ search engine optimization, and take advantage of another opportunity to have the search engines work in your favor.

To do this properly, there are a few things that you will need to do. The first, of course is to write the press release and make certain that all of your most important keywords are included within its text with a good density. You must then distribute your press release to the right places. There are a number of different press release services out there – both free and paid – that are willing to publish your press release and distribute it to different media representatives worldwide. Among the largest and most popular of these press release distribution websites are webwire.com and prweb.com.

By working with large distribution sites such as these, you’ll be making sure that your search engine optimizing efforts are being used to their fullest. The reason is because these sites distribute to so many other sites, and because they are always having their information and content scanned by different search engine spiders and indexers, having your press release added to the possible top results for the keywords that you have selected.

This is such an easy process that it is, in fact, considered to be even easier than writing the press release itself. After all, you need to make certain that the press release is good enough that it will be picked up and republished by other websites, online journals, blogs, and ezines, and not just remain stranded at the press release distribution website, as handy as it is with website ranking.

Remember that the purpose of your press release is not just search engine optimization. That is a secondary advantage. You still want to make sure that the news that you are reporting is spread as far as possible, and read by as many prospective clients and site visitors as you can manage.

This being said, you need to understand that though your keyword needs to be included in your press release, the rest of the content has to be of high caliber. If you are not skilled in writing, you may choose to have a professional press release writer do it for you – they are quite worth the money.

An effective press release will have a strong, informative title, information that is straight to the point without any fluff, no spelling or major grammatical errors, no informational errors, and a healthy smattering of useful keywords. By ensuring that your press release fulfills all of these requirements, you dramatically increase your odds of having your press release well distributed, well ranked among search engines, and well read among your target market.

As far as the keyword is concerned, do make sure that it is mentioned frequently enough to count, but don’t paste it into your press release so many times that it doesn’t read naturally or that it might register as SPAM by the search engines who will be ranking it. A safe density is usually within the 2 to 3 percent range. Try to use it once in your title, and very close to the beginning of the first sentence in your first paragraph. After that, once or twice in the rest of the press release should do it.

It is important that you never overlook the value of search engine optimizing any online document that you may create. Press releases are among the most effective because of their high distribution, but you should include search engine optimizing in anything that you will be posting.

Search Engine Optimization and English Spelling

November 30, 2008

Recently I was analyzing keywords used by the visitors to search my website and thought of discussing some issues related to spelling with other people.

I found many people coming to my website are not using the correct spellings while searching in the search engines. It is fact that a large number of people who use internet through out the world do not have good knowledge of English. You may found lot of people of China, India, France, Germany, Russia and many other countries do lack in using correct English spellings.

Another problem is different spellings used by UK English and International English. When web masters optimize their websites they pick the most commonly used terms and phrases with respect to their websites and they either follow the UK English or International English and they optimize the sites accordingly. But for instance if you are following UK English, your site may not be come up on top ranking for the corresponding International English keyword. Some common examples are Organization and Organization, Optimization and Optimization, color and color etc. etc.

I found many webmasters follow the following techniques to avoid the above problems:-

1. Use the variant spelling of the keywords in the meta tags
2. Use all possible variants and misspelled words in the main body
3. Some people mask the misspelled words that are they use the same color of the text as their page color hence not visible to human but can crawled by search engine bots.

But I feel all the above tricks are no longer useful as google do not give much importance to meta tags now a days, no one would like putting misspelled words in the main body and the last one is strongly not recommended as many search engine do not like this approach and may exclude your website from their index.

What is the Best Approach?

I recommend the following two approaches to address the issue:-

1. use the wrong or misspelled words in the Alt tags of your images, as many search engines index the alt tags.
2. Off Page Factors, while doing link building for your website, you can deliberately use the wrong or misspelled words in the anchor text and it will solve your problem to a great extent.
