Your Achievements : Intermediate SEO Skills
Do you know that I have only 2 seconds to convince you to read this post?
Probably you don’t, and I didn’t too.
But lately, I have learned some brainwashing proven SEO techniques that I would like to share here with you.
Read this definition before to fully understand new algorithms of Google.
Google is not anymore that blind search engine that kept scrolling only for keyword density, long articles and web directories.
Google has become far smarter than that; we can say that Google nowadays visits websites just like a real user.
Even though backlinks continue to be a significant factor of Google’s Algorithm, it is clear that user experience signals attract search engines rankings today
Are you ready to use 30 proven SEO techniques that will make your website insane.
1.DO NOT FOCUS SO MUCH ON KEYWORD Planner
I am sure that by that paragraph, I might sound quite off.
Believe me or not, the Google Keyword Planner is one of the last places you want to look for awesome keyword ideas for your business.
- It gives the same keywords even for your competitors
- It gives very close variations of the keywords you put in.
However, GKW is the best place to check for competition and monthly searches.
2.Use Wikipedia as keyword resource online
Wikipedia is hardly known from webmasters as a resource for keyword ideas.
To use Wikipedia as a keyword resource, you should step over homepage and enter a keyword related to your niche.
Then look for The Table Of Contents.
3.Interact with your probably new audience on Forums
Forums have been used for quite some time before for keyword research.
Nowadays they are hardly ever being used, this results in great opportunities for us.
When many people open new threads on the forum, that means that they don’t know the answer… That’s the time where you come in.
Try to use the same title topics most users use because these are equivalent words that they search on Google.
This SEO technique is similar with “Search related to”, but it’s on Youtube.
However, Google owns youtube.
So this must work for Google too.
5.Choose gold keywords Ideas
All the beginners in SEO, when they use Google Keyword Planner, they focus on two things…
- Search volume
That’s totally wrong because that’s the opposite of our most important goal (making money).
The third thing that you must focus from now on is Suggested Bid.
6.Another way to get keyword ideas from Google
Write a keyword, for example, how to create infograhpics on Google.
Go to bottom of Google
There are some results related to keyword you put in.
7.Choose keyword on trends
Interested what millions of people are searching these days?
Go to Google Trends and find keywords that are being loud.
8.Do some magic with Semrush
This tool is like Keyword Planner from Google that generates mind-bogglingly keyword ideas.
Just go to SEO Keyword Magic and type a keyword like a boss.
Get the results
9.Grab your competitors keyword ideas
Don’t be shy, everyone does this.
Semrush comes again with another fantastic tool
Just pop into the homepage, write the URL of your competitor.
10.Ask the people direct
Do you want to write for them, correct?
What don’t you give it a different shot?
Ask them directly from your email list and/or the end of the post…
11.Update Posts to give the users a reason to come back
Did you know that updating your posts is a ranking factor?
So you must update your content every time there is a new trendy thing to add.
Updating your content results in gaining more visitors to your post.
12.Hungry users want to eat tasty Posts
Would you like your audience to smile while reading your posts?
I hell would like that.
So learn below How to write High-Quality content that will get your visitors jaws dropping.
Use a lot of sub-headings
The photo clearly tells how posts would look without sub-headings. (right one)
Aint that silly, right?
But don’t use just sub-headings like
Improve SEO, Use images.
Make them longer like
—> Improve SEO for 100% higher conversation rate optimization…
Engage with audience (One of the best proven SEO Techniques)
Even that SEO is our main reason, try to avoid it when you are writing.
What does that mean?
That means you need to write for your visitors.
If they don’t come, neither will SEO come.
Prepare for shares to increase your SERP
If people fall in love with your post, they’ll be dying to share it.
Make the job easier for them by making the sharing buttons more visible.
I prefer plugins that follow the visitor when he scrolls the website.
Use images, I mean high-quality ones
It’s said that within images, are an infinite amount of words.
Does that fit for you, because for me it does?
I can say, that content with no optimized images doesn’t long last.
Use Secret Words to make visitors stay longer
Sometimes Secret Words can be referred as Bucket Brigades
But the function is the same on every blog.
The primary purpose of secret words is to lure visitors in your website for a longer time.
Below you have a list of some secret words.
- By the way
- It’s true
Remember # Secret Words can be created even by you.
Think like your audience thinks
This is huge SEO Technique.
It can make your content superior if you understand it.
Thinking like your readers means that a content doesn’t impact same to all.
For example, a man can’t be a successful blogger in mommy’s niche.
He doesn’t know their effort, frustrations, and delight.
To be successful in your niche, you must know
- How to solve their problems?
- What are their big struggles?
- You must have been in a position like they are.
13.Avoid Popups to give freedom to your visitors
There’s no denying the fact that popups help us to build an email list faster.
Lately, it has been shown that popups which aren’t being useid in the right way, can kill your website’s traffic.
14.Make your website fast as a Cheetah
Well, the speed of the site is a big factor in SERP.
Nobody will want to scroll down on a slow website. This statement concludes that you will lose user experiences that will lose SEO too.

15.Promote your content to your email list
Maybe social medias have taken a huge part from Email list to promote content.
For my experience, email list stands #1 for promoting content.
The point is that you need to do on the right way.
Step1# Don’t just send the title and the link of the article.
Step2# Talk with the subscribers like you’ve known them for a while.
Step3# Give them a brief description (2-3 paragraphs) on what the article is about.
16.Do not make GRAMMATICAL MISTAKES
I know that is hard for someone that is not an English native speaker, and even for native speakers to not make grammatical mistakes.
We need to give it our best!
I use an app called Grammarly that is free but also has a premium version.
Out there are tons of apps like Grammarly, that can turn your average posts into professional posts, just by the click of a button.
These apps will turn your frustration into a joyful blogger!
17.Short URLs for better SERP and UX
I stated twice in this post that if you have better User Experiences, you will have better SERP.
It is proven that using long URLs doesn’t make any benefit.
For example domain.com/07/03/2017/seo-techniques-that-you-must-be-aware-on-2017
Long URLs also create problems for people who want to share it
3 Tips why you should use Short URLs
1# URL is SEO Friendly because contains only the focus keyword.
2# Gives a brief description what post is about.
3# They make it easier to be shared on Social Medias.
18.Get sitelinks like famous brands
Sitelinks are built to help users navigate easier to your site.
Google analyzes the link structure of your post and then gap the info in they’re looking for in one place.
The easiest way to have site links is by “jump linking” in different sections (break the content).
19.Tweet it even easier (New SEO TECHNIQUE)
Some steps before I told you to make social sharing buttons easy to find?
There’s even a more productive way to get tweets.
Install Click To Tweet and allow people to share unique parts of your text (quotes).
20.Delete your puberty blog posts
There’s not any blogger in history that with the first post made all the success.
When we were new to blogging, we made bullshit blogs.
But for that time they were the best of us, haha
However, if you want to be the lovely buddy of Google then you must delete your first blogs that you think that are bullshit.
I did this, I have deleted about 30 posts.
My personal definition about Backlinks
I mentioned before that content is king, right?
If so, then the backlinks are the army.
There’s not a king without an army, and an army without a king.
They go parallel together. So also content goes with backlinks in a parallel line.
21.Get backlinks with infographics (guestograhpics)
- Create a well designed infographic
- Find sites that are related to your infographic
- Ask if they can add infographic in the post
- Along with the infographic, add some words about it.
Remember # Try to get contextual backlink
22.Build High Authority BACKLINKS from Profile Sites
I guess you spend a lot of time on social medias?
Why not profiting from them, instead of just losing?
Below you have some social profiles where you can get a backlink from.
- LinkedIn.com – Build your resume, where you can add an URL.
- Yelp – Link profile is do-follow, while in the comment is no-follow.
- StumbleUpon – Share your articles (Url allowed) worldwide.
- Youtube – Build your video channel, with a profile link inside.
- Google + – Reach your relevant people on circles.
23.Be Active on Forums (DoFollow backlinks)
I have mentioned before in this article that you need to interact with your new audience (probably) in forums.
It’s proven that you can get significant traffic from forums,
If you answer the questions accurately, be friendly with people, don’t over post your URL (especially in beginning).
Below you have five forums that are very active (DoFollow Backlinks)
24.Backlink New Algorithms (relevancy)
Even that Google has cut off the Page Rank, pages authority is still there.
The page authority still matters on backlinks, but not as it was.
Nowadays Google checks more about relevancy (same articles).
For example, if you write about “Top 10 things before you travel in Thai”, and you get a backlink from a post like “US Navy find dead bodies.”
It won’t help you, but it will make your post authority worse.
25.Write Reviews or Testimonials
There’s not a possible way to have a blog and not using an internet product.
For example, every blogger uses at least two companies
Why not using them for a backlink opportunity?
You can write a testimonial like in the photo up.
Or a review like down below
26.Broken link building method
Every day many blogs (even authoritative ones) are being closed and changing their domain names.
With this strategy, you can transfer their fame to your blog.
This method is about finding sites relevant to your niche that has been shut down.
- You can use websites like Broken Link Checker or Google Extension Check My Links to easily find broken links on those pages.
- Once you find the backlinks it’s the time to find the most wanted post.
- If you found it, then it’s the time for you to build a high authority post same as it.
- Then you must inform people about that page and about your new post (Like it’s shown below in the photo).
27.Get High Quality Backlinks with Guest posting
Guest posting can be a great way to drive insane traffic and a quality backlink to your blog, if you do in the right way.
First, you need to find a blog related to your niche.
You must check if it has regular visitors.
Write a post related to one of your posts (to rank higher your post).
How to find blogs that accept a guest post in my niche?
Your Keyword “guest post opportunities.”
Your Keyword “submit blog post.”
Your Keyword “write for us.”
How to find all guest posts by an author?
Author’s name “my guest blogs.”
Author’s name “posts on other blogs.”
Author’s name “I’ve been featured on.”
When you already published the guest post, you should also take care of it, by Replying to Comments.
28.From unlinked mentions to Backlinks
Your blog can be mentioned just by name sometimes.
But why not turning these mentions to backlinks?
29.Promote your content to the right people
Great content without the good backlinks still won’t be great enough.
Still, the most efficient way to promote your content is by email.
But how to mail the right people?
The answer belongs to Google
Search with this query to Google “keyword + roundup.”
Then contact the administrator of the website.
Tell something about your site & yourself, and show them your greatest post.
Remember # They are looking for great content, not silly posts
30.Inform people that you Mentioned Them
While you are making your post, always think about your backlinks.
For example link to other posts (good ones).
Then you tell the people that you mentioned them.
Below is a letter that you can use for it.
There’s no doubt that this post is amazing [his post url]
That’s why I mentioned it here [your post url]
