1. Write “killer” titles for blog posts, once a day

In order to see your website getting high ROI from your SEO efforts, make sure to write “catchy” titles that hooks people right from the beginning. Writing interesting titles such as “Can’t keep up? 7 Ways to Get Rid of Fat” helps you pull more readers than titles like “7 Ways to lose fat.”
Previous title works better because they’re not only unique, but they also address their audience pressing issue with the simple question “Can’t keep up?” – i.e. people who have tried all sorts of weight loss programs/diets but never achieve their desired goals.
Make sure to include the main keyword in the title once as most people will likely click on the title that are relevant to their searches.

2. Post helpful and interesting content, 3 days a week

Google love websites that offer fresh and helpful content on a regular basis. So, if you’re not writing blogs daily, chances are that your competitors may do and take away customers away from you.
In order to keep the traffic flowing to your site, make sure to post blog posts that are helpful and interesting to read for your visitors.
Make each content not less than 500 word because with fewer words you cannot properly optimize your content for search engines.

 

3. Edit and proofread content before publishing

Visitors will have a great time reading your content that are well-written, and free from spelling and grammatical errors. On the other hand, no one can read a post that isn’t organized around a specific topic.
Remember that Internet users do have short span of attention. They require small chunks of information related with the search keyword they’ve typed on the keypad.
Proofreading your content before publishing will help you get rid of unnecessary topics, fuzzy logic, and bad grammars/spellings.
When you focus on enhancing user’s experience, Google will automatically reward you with higher ranking.

 

4. Share your content on social media regularly

Once you’ve written and published your content, share your content on your social accounts where your friends, family members, and potential customers.
You may have a great looking web design and an engaging content, but if you’re not willing to promote it, no one is going to find you on the Internet. Besides, Google loves a website that has a strong social signal.
For every article or blog you publish, make sure to share a brief post on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.

 

5. Comment on at least 3 blogs

In addition to sharing your posts on social media, make sure to comment on top three, or high PR, blogs in your niche to generate free backlinks. If your comments are approved, you’ll have an opportunity to attract a portion of their traffic to your site.
It may sound a small thing, but if you comment on blogs on a regular basis, soon you’ll see rise in your website rankings in ways you never have imagined.

 

6. Comments on at least 3 forums

Just like commenting on a blog, posting/commenting on forum threads can increase your website rankings drastically. Forums are one of the “trustworthy” sites out there where tens of thousands of people browse through daily to find reviews, tips, tricks, and topics of their interests.
Posting on a regular basis on forum can not only help your website in terms of rankings and traffic, but you’ll also have an opportunity to stay current with the latest trends, techniques and what people are asking for.
So, find top 3 relevant forums in your niche and start commenting on threads for each post you publish on your website.

 

7. Do a “keyword research” for fresh set of keywords, once a month

Most businesses think that targeting a certain list of keywords is enough to reach at the top position of the search engines. But they overlook that fact that their customers use different keyword phrase to search for the same products and services.
So, do you have a set of new keywords to rank quickly on search engine results?
If the answer is no, then you’ll probably want to contact your SEO professional and ask them to find new set of keywords in your niche and advise you how to make the most out of those keywords.

 

8. Update website design (plugins, widgets, and themes), once a month

In order to get the most out of your SEO efforts, you’ll have to be at the top of your game. Not only this will set you as an industry expert, but you’ll also prevent your website from unwanted attacks and virus infections.
Yes, updating your website with the latest themes, plugins, and widgets will not only make your website more accessible, but also keep “unwanted” virus and malicious content at bay.
Plus, when your website is updated, it will work better with the latest technologies that arise constantly on the Internet.

 

9. Participate in a Guest Blogging Campaign

Guest blogging is all about trying to establish a “trust” with Google. Google loves websites that are active online and participate in wide variety of link building techniques, including Guest blogging.
So, if you want to see your website rise up the ladder of search engine pages, then you better connect with like-minded people (other bloggers) in your field and start sharing few posts with each others to leverage each other’s traffic and also to create a strong online presence.

 

10. Do an Interview with an Industry-expert, once a month

People are often in search of expert advice in their industry because they think these experts have the experience, the know-how, and something else that they lack.
So, if you can find an expert in your industry who you think can offer insightful information that people are constantly searching for, set an appointment for an interview.
Make sure to do your homework before the interview – reading their profiles, doing a background check, learning about their success and failures and how did they handled certain situations, and having all the important questions ready and organized just make the most out of the your interview.
