Now that you’ve picked a niche and learned how to create your blog, you also have to plan a little on how you will optimize your blog for Search Engines so you can begin making money online.
You’ll want to figure out what are the primary keywords in your niche that people use for search. One of the easiest ways is to begin a word or phrase in google and see how their search engine completes your phrase. The reason for this is that google is optimized to complete the most popular search terms.
Once you figure out your search phrase, you’ll want to strategically place them on your blog. Don’t optimize for a single keyword, optimize for a keyword phrase.
When you optimize for a single keyword, more often than not, that word is highly competitive and your chances of coming out on top are minimal. Where you gain a significant advantage is by focusing on a keyword phrase.
Place your keyword phrase within the first 25 words of text, and the last 25 words of the page. The h1 tag can be used for developing a headline on your page and emphasizing your keyword phrase within the beginning of your page text .
Place your keyword phrase in your page title and description. Additionally, place the keyword phrase throughout your page – being sure to bold the phrase once, italicize the phrase once, and underline the phrase once. Mention your keyword phrase every paragraph or so. Just make sure that it appears natural. If you stuff the page with your keywords, you’ll potentially turn off people who would otherwise find your page valuable.
You’ll find that you are able to develop meaningful content in your niche and just keep your keywords in your mind as you do so, and you’ll naturally follow many of these rules.
