Blog SEO – Why Should You Optimize Your Blog?

Blog SEO is one of the most effective strategies that you need to learn and master to perfection if you want your blog to be found and read.

Doubtlessly, you have created your blog so that you can drive massive amount of laser-targeted traffic and convert that traffic into repeat readers, subscribers and long-term customers.

So, you need to take action for that to happen. See, many new bloggers create a blog and then expect a flood of traffic to fall on their laps. Well, that’s a recipe for blogging failure.

Blog SEO if done properly can help your blog to grab top search engine rankings and drive unlimited traffic to your blog for free. How would you like to generate endless, laser-targeted traffic to your blog every single day without spending a dime?

It’s all exciting but maybe you feel intimidated by the whole SEO concept and don’t really know how to implement it. I remember when I used to think that SEO was complicated and I was just not interested in learning how it works.

Things changed when I realized that I needed to work on my blog SEO in order to attract more traffic.

What does SEO mean to start with?

It’s an acronym for Search Engine Optimization which basically means that your website will show up higher in the search engines when people search for your specific keywords.

What makes SEO powerful and popular?

Firstly, search engine bots look for keywords when they crawl websites, so if you use relevant keywords and phrases in your content, then you stand a good chance to get higher rankings and more traffic.

Secondly, it has been proven that more searchers prefer to click on the organic results (free listings) rather than the sponsored links (paid advertising). In addition, people don’t usually search beyond the first page. That’s why it’s important to get your blog on the first page by using the right keywords.

Now, in order to do a proper keyword research, you need to use the necessary tools so that you can understand what people are searching on.

You need to make sure that your blog is tailor-made and targeted to people who would be interested in what you have to offer, otherwise your blog SEO efforts would be wasted and your traffic will not be targeted.

Now that we have laid out the foundation for blog SEO, we will look at the actual steps that you need to take to optimize blog and increase the rankings and profits in the next post!
