seo tips
It is a dream of every website owner to have his website in top rankings of Google, Bing and Yahoo. Though many people hire SEO experts or SEO consultants for their SEO campaign but still a lot of people want to do SEO themselves.  On first look, SEO might seem very complex due to huge number of SEO experts or SEO consultants offering SEO services.  Thus, here are some SEO Tips for Starters or do-it-yourself tips for SEO

Careful selection of Keywords

This is most important factor in SEO. You should do some research for the keywords you are willing to use. Keywords are terms which people search online while looking for things. You can use Adwords tool to find right keywords for your site. Start with small number of keywords and once you have them on top, and then only add new keywords.

Optimize your Title Tags

Make sure your keywords are in title tags of pages. For this purpose, you must have knowledge of HTML and CMS (Content Management System) depending on if your site is simple or CMS based. Make sure you optimize your home page perfectly.  But never overdo your title tag. The title tag still should make sense as though you are optimizing your site for search engines but your target is humans.

Keywords in Domain Name

This is applicable only when you still have to buy a domain name or if you have option to change it. Try to have your keyword in your domain name. This will make your website relevant to search engines but after Google Panda Update, few SEO experts or SEO consultants feel that domain name(s) now no longer play a dominating role in deciding search engine rankings for the keywords.

Keywords in Heading Tags

Heading Tags in HTML are denoted by H1 to H6. Try to include few keywords in these tags. Make sure your page has at least one heading tag.

Correct Keyword Density

Make sure your website content has right density of keywords. Keyword density is number of times your keywords are in content. Never overdo it as it can have a negative impact and search engines might consider your website SPAM.  Also, try to include your keywords in right place.

Setup Internal Linking

If you ask SEO experts or SEO consultants, they will tell you importance of internal linking. Try to link one page of your site with other pages and try to have keyword as anchor text. This will give boost to rankings of internal pages.

So these are some SEO tips for starters which can help you to get good rankings for your website even when you choose not to avail services of SEO experts or SEO consultants.
