1. Use Your Keywords In Your Domain Name
It might be too late if you have already created a blog, but if you start a new one, you should choose a domain name which will contain the keywords you are targeting. For example, if you want to rank highly on the search engines for ‘dog training tips’, then it may be a good idea to include ‘dog training’ somewhere in your domain name. This will make your site appear more relevant to the search engines.
2. Use Your Keywords In Your Text
Try to add your main keywords into the body of your text. Don’t pepper your text incessantly with your keywords because the search engines will think you are trying to trick them, but do add your main keywords a few time into the text. This further increases your blog’s relevance with the search engines.
3. Use Keywords In Your Anchor Text Links
When posting comments on other blogs or posting in forums, include your keywords in your links if you wish to advertise them. For example, you’d want your link to show ‘dog training tips’. Anchor text links are one of the main ways to shoot up the search engine rankings.
4. Exchange Links With Relevant Blogs
Whenever you are reading blogs which are relevant to yours, try to find the owner’s contact information and contact him or her, asking if they would like to exchange links with your site. This is a win-win situation as it benefits both.
