People like articles because they are written by other people and not organizations. People want to know what you think, your personal experience and your knowledge. Best way is to “Write and Explore Yourself”. Tell them exactly what you think, what you experienced and redefine other’s view.
You will find thousands of references on the search engines shouting – How to write Good Article. Let me explain what Tips I have gathered:
Your Content is Your Magnet
The Quality of the Article you write is the single most important factor when it comes to Search Optimized Article. Give the maximum amount of information with the least amount of words. Time is finite and people are infinitely busy. Blast your knowledge into that very single article.
350 words Article is enough to explore any topic but the article with more text has been seen to perform better. Quality content help users to remember what have been written – Ultimately they appreciate it by passing on Article’s link to others or by giving some reference (Say linking in their own Blog).
Note: 1. Avoid usage of Images in your post. Search engines have a bit allergy from the images that are used in an Article. Still if you have used, do not forget to add alternate text for images. This alternate text should be the best keyword that describes your article.
2. No Externel Links.
As I said earlier - Give the maximum amount of information with the least amount of words. Every time you write a post you should be automatically be considering what words people might be putting into search engines to find that type of information. Once you know what kinds of words they’re using you’re in a great position to position yourself for that search.
Make Snappy Title. Summarize your whole article in Single Title. Search Engine pays particular attention to titles - so make sure you get them right. Try to include words that have more weight/stuffing in the article.
Litter the post with Keywords. Use the keywords you identified in point #1 within your post also. Don’t go over the topic but do use the words where you can naturally in the post.
Include bullet point lists as it structures the info in an easily digestible format. Make your posts easy to scan. Every few paragraphs insert a sub heading. Be consistent with your style. Before you hit the submit button, re-read your post and cut out the stuff that you don’t need.
Links For Your Articles
Links from other websites to your Articles are key in SEO. Start linking your Article from other sites that are active on. Some (like on Twitter) won’t count for anything much as they have no-follow tags but they are all potential ways for people to access your site and some will help with SEO. You can use social bookmarking websites like digg, technorati, blinklist, mister wong, mix and many more.
Don’t become obsessed with getting links - rather become obsessed about writing great content and the links will generally come in time.
If you have written two articles on same topic, you can interlink them. This will tell user to browse that article too and good in SEO sense.
Note: Do not create cross link. Just gave link of your older article in the New one.
Readers Begat Readers
This isn’t an SEO technique as such but it plays a part. The more readers you have the more likely your blog is to be found by other readers. Use your social network and social sites like facebook, orkut and let your friends know about your articles. There’s a certain ’snowballing’ thing that happens with articles over time - as you get readers quite often momentum grows as those readers pass on your links to others in their network. I guess what I’m saying is to get readers any way you can - don’t just focus upon ‘SEO’ as such. It all counts.
# Update Your articles regularly.
# Avoid Images.
# Do not insert externel Links.
# Look out for Keywords that best represents your article. Stuff your article with those articles keeping a density of 3-4%.
# Check out the proper spcaing between words or phrases. Two words without space in between, will be treated as single word by the search engines.
# Article Series: Writers often show interest in writing series of articles. This is an good method of exploring something, if you can not limit that topic in limited words. Also reader found this interesting. But writers often went out of the track while writing articles in Series. They start with something but ends up with something else.
> Dont forget original subject in your Series.
> Keep proper keyword density.
