I hope you’ve been enjoying the series. You’ll notice off to the right that all of the posts are “serialized” for your convenience. If you’ve missed a tip or two, use the links to the right for quick and easy navigation.
Today, you get two tips inside of one post. Let’s jump right in.
Support Descriptive Page Titles With Keyword-Rich Headlines
You don’t have to be an SEO expert to do this. Just know your keywords, and use them in your headline. Then use them within the body of your content within reason. This is what is known as an on-page factor toward ranking higher at the search engines for that particular keyword phrase.
How do you determine which words will drive qualified traffic to your blog site, and be the keywords that compel action?
You can also run keyword analysis. Keyword analysis will uncover the most effective keywords based on actual search engine results and competition in your niche. We recommend Market Samurai.
Copywriting Tip #2: Use Your Keywords In Your Anchor Text
Anchor text refers to the words that are “hyperlinked” to another page. These words are often underlined and appear in a different color from the rest of the text. Search engines consider these words more important than non-linked words and phrases.
You can you take advantage of this. Let’s saying you’re linking from your home page to your resources page. Instead of hyperlinking the word “Resources,” be more specific. Hyperlink using…say… “Keyword Research Resources,” “Resources for MLM Blogging,” or “Resources for People Who Hate Cold Calling.” The descriptive hyperlink is also more helpful to your site visitors.
The search engines will also have a better idea of what the linked-to page is all about and in time will rank it higher. That is if all other things are equal. There is no “one thing” that helps with SEO, it’s a combo of many things.
