Isn’t it fabulous when something works? I’m delighted to report that my SEO tips actually made a difference for someone!
I don’t often get the chance to crow about a success, but when I read this I just had to share:
‘Well, this morning and, for the first time ever, I posted an original, creative, lively, personable post . . . a-n-d had my best day of hits since I began this Blog in 2007!’ (http://www.myestheticiansblog.com/2013/05/the-fairy-blog-mother.html)
This blogger took on board my advice that you need to write your posts thinking about your readers’ experience: would they enjoy it, is it useful to them, are their lives improved by it, are they entertained, would they want to share it with their friends, are they compelled to leave a comment?
And suddenly when a post becomes alive, the result is amazing! Another SEO tip: compose your post’s title purely for the reader to entice them to read it, whereas your SEO title should stimulate the search engines to index the post.
The whole reason why I arranged my last Lunchtime Learning video around SEO tips was not only to tell people about it, but to get them to actually practice it and see if it made a difference. And here is the proof!
Haven’t read them yet? Here’s the resources sneeze page I created for my SEO tips and video, and if you want to join up to my mailing list to be ready for the next Lunchtime Learning subject, feel free!
And if you start to see a difference to your blog’s stats, do let me know! I would love to write about them and link back to you too!
