WordPress: How To Make Your Blog Work For You

If your blog is business oriented, you must always consider
SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

Yes – the ugly three word phrase.? But these tips are
easy – no coding needed. No scratching your head over php
or html. It’s simply about choosing the theme layout that
will help your SEO efforts.? It’s easy but almost no one
knows about it or thinks about it.

Do you know that Search Engines don’t always read every
word on your page?? That’s right – they don’t.? The header
tags and the upper left hand corner of the page might be all
that is checked.? What if your sidebar is in the upper left
hand corner?? The content in your sidebar doesn’t change
frequently so the Search Engines will think there is nothing
new and move on.? One of the main advantages of a blog is
that it is frequently updated so it is Search Engine
friendly.

What’s a blogger to do?? Simple – choose a two-column
theme with the sidebar on the right!

What are ‘header tags’?? Header tags are simply the title
of the post.? Behind the scenes, your theme encloses your
title in header tags.? That’s what makes the font bigger
and makes it look like a title.? Why is the title
important?? Search engines also look at what’s inside your
header tags.? Since each post creates a new page it’s easy
for the search engines to locate the header tags. So –
think about the title of every post.? Make it keyword rich
for the search engines but make it grab your reader too.

With a little thought and planning you can make your blog
really work for you.
