You write a blog religiously every day or so. You provide informative,
interesting content for your loyal readers. You’ve even got a couple of
affiliate links in there, too. But is this enough to get great search
engine results for your efforts?

Probably not. Sure, you’ll get listed with the search engines easily. But
without a top twenty listing at one of the majors (Google, Yahoo! or
MSN), you won’t have traffic, literally, banging down your door.

In order to get better search engine results you need to make sure you
are using the right keywords (and know how to use them), have links
pointed your way and regularly check the results of your hard work.
Here’s how.

Choosing Appropriate Keywords

Do you know what search terms your visitors are using to find   you? Most
blogging sites give you the option of checking up to see just   how people
found you. If you don’t have this feature available, hop over   to
http://www.statcounter.com/ and install their free service on   your blog
immediately.

Next, research those keywords. Visit Overture’s free site
(http://inventory.overture.com/) and type in the most generic of the
terms people are using to find your blog. You’ll get a list of related
keywords used at a major search engine in the past month. Although it is
an oversimplification of the search engine optimization process, try and
stick to the more unusual but natural-sounding keywords as your top
picks.
Putting Keywords in the Right Places

Once you’ve picked a keyword that applies directly to your blog, make
sure to incorporate it into the following portions of one complete blog
posting:

#   The title;
#   The first sentence;
#   Each header (if you have any);
#   Once a paragraph; and
#   The last sentence.

If you have any links to outside sources, use the same keyword as your
link text where possible. Also, for each blog posting, try and pick a
different (but related) keyword to use. Feel free to reuse keywords every
30-45 postings.

Submitting to Directories

Your third step is to take these keyword optimized blog postings and post
them to the article and blog directories. Most of the search engines
determine the relevancy of your blog by how many outside websites link
directly to you; therefore, posting your blog entries (with a link back
to your site in your resource blurb) is an easy and straightforward way
of doing so.

Checking Your Progress

It may take a couple of days to see any results, so try and wait a week
before you take a look at StatCounter. Have your hits increased at all?
Are there any new search engine referrals?

To track your blog’s ascent up the search engine rankings for any given
keyword, try Digital Point’s free Keyword Tracker Tool
(http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/keywords/). It is an excellent way of
ensuring your blog positioning efforts are paying off.

With all blog postings, content is key. Without useful, interesting
information that cannot be found elsewhere, your visitors won’t come back
for more. Incorporate these simple search engine optimization techniques
into your blogging practice however, and you’ll both keep the visitors
you already have and dramatically increase your readership through high
ranking search engine placement in no time.
