Simple SEO Techniques
Most of my post are about food, in particular healthy food. In recent comments several people have been asking about how I do aspects of my post. So especially for them and for those of you who are interested in SEO related to building a post here goes. First let me tell you a little about myself, it helps because I can illustrate with a few links some of what I want to mention. I was born in a city in the South West of England called Plymouth, most famous for the home port of Sir Francis Drake a navel (pirate) Captain of Queen Elizabeth the first ship The Golden Hinde in the mid 1500’s. Plymouth was for the most part an important navel base, particularly during World War 11. the Germans tried to bomb it, failed, but did flatten much of the city, killing 1172 of it’s people and injuring 4,448. During the 59 bombing raids, two main shopping centres and nearly every civic building were destroyed, along with 26 schools, eight cinemas and 41 churches. In total, 3,754 houses were destroyed with a further 18,398 seriously damaged. on one occasions a direct hit on a bomb shelter killed 72 people. It wasn’t until the early 1960’s that much of the damaged buildings were completely demolished and the city rebuilt, that included the one and only sky scraper of 14 stories high called The Civic Centre.
The port (Devnport) is now in private hands and the glory days of employing 10,000 dockers no longer survives. the Navel base is still used for some submarine repairs and the Navel base of HMS.Drake renamed Her Majesty’s Naval Base, Devonport and is active. Let’s get back to add some SEO to this short article, starting at the beginning with healthy food. most of this site is about healthy food, so for SEO purposes I’m going to link the words healthy food to an article on this site relating to healthy foods. You can see the result by clicking on the words healthy foods In each case where I used the same words I placed a different internal link relating to healthy foods, that gives the reader an interesting reading experience, and three internal links is deemed to be a good number, you can add more if you wish., the first I’ve linked to Wikipeda, not only is it a very high ranking site, but it also has excellent content relating to the subject, and Google wants you the reader to have a good experience when using it’s search engine. The next word is SEO , here we have used it 4 times and can find four different external links, known as anchor tags or anchor links. You are anchoring your article to an external web site. The next one, I’ve linked to seo.com a site with a Google ranking of 5 and Alexa.com places it at 1935 in the USA. The third one Searchenginland.com also has a page ranking of 5 Alexa.com ranks it at 805 in the world and has 23,936 bank links that add a remarkable about of juice for search engines to find. Lastly Moz.com with a page rank of 6 Alexa.com places it at 305 in the world with 14,858 back links. alexa.com does the Analytics for any web site and is owned by Amazon One of the things you do not want to do, is to saturate your post with all very high ranking links. Google will see what your doing and might give you grief. Moving on
South West of England,
some say the most beautiful part of the UK (mostly by those who live there) here I’ve used a visitor site that has many photo’s and useful for the reader to see what the place looks like. The city of Plymouth, here again I’ve been able to use a high ranking site that belongs to the Plymouth City Council. who use it to promote the city. From a readers point of view this is reliable useful information, thus a good search engine experience. Next up is Sir Francis Drake, him we have massive amounts of sites, he was such an interesting character with many story printed about him and a number of high ranking site available, the one I used here has a page rank of 8.
Queen Elizabeth 1st
a queen who created great stability during her regime of 44 years and manage to keep the Spaniards at bay
World War 11
you can pick from thousands of sites as the subject is so big, I’ve just pick out one I thought interesting for my readers. The top image of a salad dish (very nice too) Has an alt text attached plus a link to the page it came from.
Plymouth Civic Centre
here I’ve included an image, click on it and it will take you to the site where the image came from. It’s very important to tell the search engine what the picture is about as they can’t see it, so you have to put in what is called Alt Text, in this case I’ve used Plymouth Civic Centre. In this article I made 22 links, 4 internal and 18 external anchor text links of high ranking plus two images with Alt test attached so the search engines can see them, plus links to where they came from.
Word of advice,
don’t simply look for high ranking sites, go for quality content relating to your topic, as an example my blog is about food here’s a food site that has quality content medmeanderings.com and other interesting items to grab your attention.Remember search engines know when your over doing the links and will penalize you for it. Final point, the headings you see in the lower section of this article have used what is known as header text, they are surrounded by a code that looks like this <h3>Word of advice</h3> the main title of this post looks likes this <h1>Simple SEO technique For Every Day Use</h1> these symbols remain hidden for normal reading. Please leave a comment to agree, disagree or require more information. PS. I’ve used bold and Italic to make clear where the links are, normally you would use one or the other, not always both as it distracts the reader from the ease of reading. buying books go to beezeebooks.com
