Lesser Known SEO Tips & Tricks to Increase Traffic

There are thousands of SEO & Blogging articles floating around the web which talk about the usual cliche SEO (Search Engine Optimization) tips. Today I want to share few SEO tips which will help you optimize your site and blogs to niche words and queries. They have certainly made a difference to my nascent blog

1. Use of Tags & Labels
Surely everyone of us know about Tags & Labels in Wordpress, Blogger but not all realize that the words you use as Tags or Labels are Key Phrases for Blog. Always add 2-3 Keywords and Phrases to every post at the least. Use the Kind of Keywords you want to be searched for, and don't resist using low volume keywords or Long tail keywords. More precise the keywords > Lesser the Competition > More the Traffic 
To quote an example, My blog is very recent, not enough back links & no page rank etc  - but I already get traffic from SEO for search terms like "New Digg Pros cons" or "Facebook Tab Sizes".

2. Add the Labels (or Tag) Widget to your blog. You can have it in any part of the layout, but it's always better to have the widget present as it helps the Search engine crawlers to read the text. 

3. Review & Tweak your SEO performance continuously
To start with another example, Earlier I wrote a post "How to Untrack own visits from Blogger" - this post is successfully on top of SERP (Search engine results page) for its key words, but I saw a lot of people looking for "Stop tracking own page views in blogger" for which my post was not coming in results. I had not used the words 'Stop Tracking' anywhere in the original post, but on review I added the 'Stop Tracking' Keyword and now the same post is completely optimized for all important keywords. The change in search results took effect in less then 2 days.

4. Anchor Text and Inlinking
On Review, a lot of new posts that you create can be linked to your old posts with Anchor Texts easily. Also don't forget to go back and tweak the old posts with Anchor texted links to newer posts. Links from your own site to your own site also mean a lot to Search engines. Its a great combination of SEO and Usability.

Its really very important to keep reviewing your posts and cross check on search engines to find out what you have missed on and make the relevant corrections. Make it a once a week mandatory routine to for blog analysis and review. 

5. Importance of DEEP Linking
We want to create a lot of backlinks, but probably 98% of bloggers work hard only to create backlinks for their Homepage (main URL). We forget to deep link our blog / site pages i.e. generating back links for other pages on the blog. Why is Deep Linking Important - In simplest words, when search engines see a lot of back links to plenty of pages on the site, they know it's a site with a lot of worthwhile content, thus the overall site is weighed higher in Search Algorithms. Therefore create a healthy blend of backlinks for your main page as well as internal pages. 

6. Create Descriptive Posts
Search engines love content and the content around the content. So if your keywords are surrounded by more of your desired keywords - its better for your search results. Please don't get carried away and produce irrelevant content. Always, always, always make sense with every word.
