Top 10 SEO Tips and Tricks for your Blogs in 2014!

As you all know that I recently published my first book. I did announce the same in my last blog post. Although as I said towards the end of the blog that I am also planning to write another book on SEO in post-penguin and post-panda world. I guess I started writing it a few months back only, but never get the chance to complete it.

So many things are changing in the field of SEO that to club all of them together is really a difficult task. And then you all know about my limitation with English literature which always stops me to write further, but then it is my passion which forces me to write again and again.

As I mentioned in my last blog post that I will definitely try to finish this assignment very soon and this desire of mine will be encouraged by your comments only. So please do review the book and do share your opinion, comments, feedback about the same with us, so that I can be inspired to take it further.

As you all know that SEO or search engine optimization really plays a vital role in getting traffic to your website, or blog. Some of the bloggers claims that SEO does not matter as far as blogging is concerned. To be very frank, it is not true. Blogs also need relevant traffic, and without reaching to the top of the search results how can you expect them?

Well it is true that blogs these days have some different options available for getting traffic to their blog. Like you can rely on social media, you can have good numbers of follow base, and you can get good traffic, but then nothing can substitute the traffic through search engines. And hence you cannot ignore SEO for your blogs.

I am not saying you all to learn SEO in depth; rather you can simply work on a few tips and get quality results.

Always try to contain your post title into less than 65 characters. Although search engines might consider a title of around 70 characters, but to get the best results you should make it of less than 65 characters.

Ideally you can have a title of around 55-65 characters.

Gone are the days when you can place anything in the Meta description section of your blog post. Be aware that now Google is very strict towards On page, as well as on Off page factors as well.

Keep an eye on your webmaster tools data, and look for any duplicate Meta description and try to resolve them ASAP.

Always remember the thing that your Meta description should not only be unique, but it also be related to your blog post. It should make sense with the blog post of your site.

Other than this you should also know the fact that in most of the cases Google prefer displaying your Meta description in the search engine results page, thus an attractive and matching Meta description will definitely increase the CTR (Click Through Ratio) of your blog.

Make a practice of using around 160 or fewer characters for Meta description.
