Challenge Day 23: SEO

Good Evening Fellow Crafters...

I am still feeling under the weather, and right now I am in between naps, so I decided to come and post for Day 23 of the Challenge.

I have learned so much in the past 23 Days. And if I had to name the most important thing that I've learned during this challenge thus far, number one would be, Search Engine Optimization.
Search Engine Optimization or SEO simply put, is where your website, blog, or business will rank in a search engines results.
There are companies out there that will provide the service of helping a person to be ranked on the first page of a search engine, or you can do it yourself.

The prompt for Day 23 is:

What ways will you use to increase the S.E.O. of your blog this year?

I have four ways in mind to increase SEO.

  1. Quality Page Content - Writing quality content is a must. This is the meat of becoming an "expert" in your area or niche, and getting your blog on the first page of a search engine.

  2. Guest Blogging - Guest blogging helps to build your search engine "authority", it builds credibility and drives quality traffic to your site.

  3. Quality Resource Links - When doing guest blogging, you typically provide a link from the host blog back to your own blog, thus more quality traffic to your site.
  4. Keywords & Phrases - Constant usage of keywords and phrases in my blog posts. This will help bring people to the blog who are looking for in my case, "crochet for beginners"

I chose these four methods because I am new to the crochet blogging world, I'm still a fairly new crocheter and I know that when I first began, I had to search all over to find information to get me where I needed to be. I want to have available here as many resources as possible on " crochet for beginners."

Until tomorrow...
