How to Blog : Content & Linking

kingcontent

Blogging is fun !

Whether it be to sell an item or share a story.

In both situations you want to make sure you are providing “Golden Content”.

If you want readers to continually visit your page, it behooves you to provide eye catching, cleverly worded articles to get them to come back for more.

The content you are to provide is dependent on the nature of your blog, be it personal or business.

In both cases you are blogging in a niche. Yes even in your personal life there is a niche you belong to. Niche marketing does not only apply to business, but personal stories as well. Who knew !

Content is King !

In any post you want to have at least 500 words and a keyword density of 3-5%. Some sites will let you get away with 300 word minimum , but shooting for 500 words is best. It is not a lengthy article but it keeps the reader on your site a little longer than 300 words.

With a keyword density of 3-5%, when search engine spiders crawl through your post they are able to see what that particular post is about. To help you achieve a 3-5% density you can use different variations of the word , and different context. Linking your keyword to relative post related to it will also help.

Obtaining a 500 word post with 3-5% keyword density will help with your on page SEO.

With the new Google penguin , search engines now rank your post based on relevancy to your keyword, how long people stay on your site and leaving, and social interaction.

If your content is compelling or informative enough you can have someone clicking around on your site for hours.

>>Learn How Content Equals Cash<<

Linking Text content

  1. Highlight Text you wish to Be linked
  2. Click the Link Symbol (it is only illuminated when text is highlighted )
  3. Pink the URL you wish the Text to be linked to
  4. Hit Add link

* to unlink highlight and click the Un-Link symbol, also only illuminated when text highlighted or already linked.

Linking text is a great tool to use when suggesting other website for individuals to check out.

With text linking you can link any URL you wish, capture page, YouTube Video, Twitter, Pintrest Profile, you name it.

Text link one form blogs may use to charge companies to advertise on their blog.

I am sure you have come across blogs, where if you hover over a certain word an ad pops up. If you click the ad you are taken to the offer and that blogger makes whatever the company has negotiated with her/him. Great easy way to make some quick cash.

Now that you are aware of linking text be sure not to get link happy. Dependent on the length of the article linking 2 – 3 words or phrases is fine. If you begin to link at least one word in every sentence it will distract the reader from the article. Remember you are trying to keep them on your site.  Keep the text linking to a minimum on only link to important information you wish the reader to know. Also ensure that the word being linked is relative to the page you are having them sent to.

Content creation is one of the hardest things in blogging. It can make or break a blogger.

Starting off you may have all sorts of ideas to write about, write them down.

Good Luck Creating Content and finding the balance between linking words.

Backlinks, also known as incoming links, inbound links, inlinks, and inward links, are incoming links to a website or web page. In basic link terminology, a backlink is any link received by a web node (web page, directory, website, or top level domain) from another web node.[1]

Off Page SEO is the number of back links you have directed towards your site.

Off Page seo, Anchor Text Off Page SEO and Anchor Text

With backlinks you want to make sure you are varying your anchor text. There are 4 different variations of anchor text you can have when setting up your backlinks. In your main post be sure to use descriptive keyword rich anchor text.

Anchor Text Type 1 : Exact Match Anchor Text

With Exact match anchor text, you want to make sure you are using this 25-40% of the time with your back links.

For example: If your keyword is Hot Wheels, you should make sure that anchor text is hyper linked to valuable content linking back to your original blog , or website.

Anchor Text Type 2 : Partial Match Anchor Text

With Partial Match Anchor text, you want to make sure you are using this 10-20% of the time with your back links.

For example: We will use the same keyword Hot Wheels, a partial match for this would be something like Hot Wheels Supplies or Hot Wheels on Sale. The main keyword is still in the anchor text however now you are partially matching the link.

Anchor Text Type 3: Random Anchor Text

With Random Anchor text you want to make sure you are using this 15-25% of the time with your backlinks.

Examples of this are : Click here, more information, continue reading, and so on and so forth.

These you can use with more low quality links.

Anchor Text Type 4: URL Anchor Text

With URL Anchor text you want to use this 20-30% of the time . Most of your URL anchor text links you want to post on videos.

Examples of this are; Website.com, www.website.com. http://website.com and so on and so forth.

Now none of these percentages are set in stone. Google is forever changing and evolving. Coming out with new algorithms to post the most relevant content to its viewers. These percentages are just suggestions. Figure out what works for you.

Off page Seo, anchor text , backlinksOff Page SEO: Backlinks Basics

Off Page SEO: Backlinks Basic Tip 1

When setting up backlinks for your site make sure you have link diversity. You can obtain link diversity by having links from various sources and IP addresses. Sources such as Web 2.0 Sites, Social Networking Site, Forums ect.

The new Google Penguin also likes to see multiple visitors to your site that comment and share. This lets Google know your site is valuable. Now this does not mean to go out on Fiverr and hire a bunch of people to comment on your post. There can be cost and benefits to doing this. Cost, you want high quality comments. You are only paying these people $5 for there service. So you can figure out how much quality a $5 post is. Benefit, you have a comment from a different IP address and your site may or may not be shared dependent upon what that person is offering.

Off Page SEO: Backlinks Basic Tip 2

Now that you know the importance of backlinks and how they can help your site it is important to build your backlinks steadily and maintain link velocity as time goes on.

The average new website takes from 3 to 6 months to rank high in Google. So if your site magically 100,000k links and tries to rank over night , get ready for those red flags from Google.

If There is anything to take away from this article it is this….

Start slow and build up… do not build links all at once.. a site does not naturally grow like that.. YOU WANT TO BE….OR AT LEAST LOOK, NATURAL.
