compelling title to draw in your visitors/readers. You can also use an alternate title in the "title
tag" area. This is a bit of the techie behind the scenes coding that Google pulls.

                                Does this make sense? For many new bloggers trying to write like
                                you talk can be scary and take a bit of practice. You may think
                                you need to write more eloquently that you would actual talk.
                                This is a big mistake. You need to be natural even in writing.



                                 Writing just as you would talk makes it easier to engage your
                                 readers and help them to "listen" to what you are saying. You
                                 have a unique voice even if you don't realize it. Make it easy for
your visitors to read and understand. Uncover your voice and let your readers listen. Write for
your visitors first and search engines second.

                                      settings is to be very specific and to include a variety of
                                      things about your website/blog.

                             fundamental basis of the web. Search engines want to know that you
                             are connected with other pages and content. What you link to needs
                             to be relevant to what your website/blog is all about.

own website. This will benefit your reader and increase the amount of time they spend on your
website/blog. External links benefit your reader by providing a third party validation to a certain
extent of your "expertise." Both internal and external links assist you with Google and other
search engines.

                                         formatting tools gives the search engines more weight to
                                         your words or phrases. You want to highlight your
                                         keywords, however, don't go crazy using these
                                         formatting tools. You don't want to irritate your readers
                                         or for that fact you don't want to irritate the search
                                         engines.

of your post or pages. Using these tools will help put focus on what you want your visitors to see

                                     about your product, service or even tips and ideas. Google

record yourself talking and use the free video software that came with your computer, Windows
Movie Maker. Once your video is complete add to your website as well as the top 10 video
sharing sites. Just an FYI for new bloggers, video marketing is viral marketing. Videos have a
tendency of being shared quickly and easily thanks to social media networking sites.

writing/serving two different audiences; the reader which is your visitors to your website/blog
and the search engines that crawl your website/blog. You need to create meaningful and valuable
content that will resonate with your visitors all the while appeasing the search engines.
