Let me tell you about a think which you may or may not be aware. Previous people used to generate fake contents, suppose Tom had written an article, so Larry used to copy that same thing, and they looping that same process probably 100’s of other blogger copy the same article, yet get’s to the first page of Google….!
Now, what you would say? Simply annoying isn’t it? As you are working too hard to put your brand in-front yet those that of 1990’s used to get rank just by coping. This comprehensive Q/A guide will be guiding you through various tips which would be really useful to you.
Q/A- 1: What is PageRank and How To Get PR?
Yesterday, one of our reader had asked me about Page Rank, and how to improve Page Rank. Well, page rank is a simple metric scale between 0-10. It combines total amount of backlinks a site have to the backlinks a site is pointing to an other website. Suppose you have 100 backlinks (it’s pointing to your site) and suppose you are giving link juice to other site, say “viralblogtips.com”, so Google will calculate how many links you are getting and how much you are giving away.
Well, in order to improve page rank, one has to write more and more contents. As content is king but still without Quality it’s nothing, so you should remember:
1. Write for your audience not for Google.
2. Don’t copy other article nor spin articles.
3. Be always genuine, give credits to others.
4. Make sure to use internal links in your site to point your old articles with new ones.
5. Build more links for your site.
Having more backlinks led to higher page rank, but you should remember not to use any illegal methods such as buying links, using bots to create links, using any automatic sites to create links for your site. These will not only affect your site but will also remove your site from Google history. So in order to be safe from everything and smartly improve your page rank, just make sure you do it manually.
Q/A- 2: Do You Really Need To Submit Your Site in Bookmarking Sites?
Next Question is about Social Bookmarking sites. So, let’s clarify it. Social bookmarking sites such as Reddit, StumbleUpon, Del.icio.us are useful because it helps you to promote your blog in those popular sites and allows you to drive quality traffic to your blog.
I would say it’s useful as because, directly or indirectly if you have traffic in your blog then it’s obvious that you would have better rank and if you would have better ranking then more advertisers will be attracted to your site which would led to higher amount of income.
However, getting to the front page of these site are not so easy as it seem. However, by following the tips above you could have higher chances to get more expose in these site.
1. Write attractive headings (the main shot to hit all the birds).
2. Write meaningful yet short description, write something which would actually attract more readers and which would force them to read full article.
3. Remember quality should be maintained in your article.
4. First paragraph should be exciting or shocking which would make your readers to read more.
5. Make it easy for others to bookmark your site.
Q/A- 3: Why Meta Tags are valuable?
While conducting the poll of Ask Bishal, I got a request about “Why meta tags are valuable” so let us sum it up. Meta Tags are just like A,B,C,D or to say it indicates the search engine crawlers and bots about our site. What things you are providing in your site, when they should crawl again to your site, etc. However meta tags mainly consists of Meta Title, Meta Keywords and Meta Description.
Meta Keyword and Description are still used by Google to show about a site in the search listing however meta keywords are not used by Google since past years. But still, I would suggest using those keywords as there are several other search engine like Bing, Yahoo which still possibly use keywords.
About it’s usage, I would suggest using meta’s in your site as because it’s used by the search engine bots and crawlers to determine how your site works. So it’s essential to use those.
What’s your issue?
Well, our Q/A ends here, yet we would be back with another Q/A. Till that have a good time, keep blogging. Oops, I forget to ask you. Are you having any issue that I can solve in the next Q/A?
