Since writing the Finding Readers series of blog tips I’ve had a number of people ask for more information on getting listed on Search Engines – particularly Google.
His main points include:
- Archive Individual Posts
- Incorporate post title into individual post title tags – I have this and it seems to work very well.
- Link a lot – and try to attract links
- Wrap Hypertext around words – ie don’t have links like click here but instead use descriptive terminology that people are likely to do a search on. Eg the best digital photography link on the web.
- Make your blog slim/trim and fast – he provides great resources for this.
Anyway – there is heaps to think about in his article – check it out.
