Become Paul Revere 2.0! Tell Everyone You Have a Blog To Increase SEO

It’s funny when I read job postings for a social media positions where it says, “MUST ALSO KNOW SEO”.

Although I know a few aspects of SEO aka  Search Engine Optimization (which basically improves the  traffic of your website/blog) ), I am a social media person through and through, meaning I create content and ideas, not analyzing algorithms.

Expecting a social media person to be an expert in SEO is like asking a dentist if they can also deliver a baby.  

Sure the dentist can do it, but that’s his or her expertise, (Mam your baby have a lovely smile, but is head shaped like a Chicken McNugget).

However, over the years I have picked up some SEO tricks that have helped me build traffic on my various blogs, so I decided to give you a few McNuggets that could be beneficial to increase your traffic:

1.) Ping Me Baby!  Submit your blog to online tools like Pingomatic or  Pingoat, which will notify all the major blog directories that your blogs exist. This doesn’t guarantee major increase traffic immediately but it puts you in the game for your blog to be seen.

2.) Content, Content, Content! You don’t become a successful blogger overnight,  it takes time, energy and content. It doesn’t matter if it’s written, pictures or videos, the more content you have, the better the opportunity have to find your blog on search engines.

3.) Tag You’re it!  Place at  5-10 releveant tags on your blog. Use Google Adwords Keyword Tool Box to find words that will make your blog post a lot more searchbale.

4.) Become Paul Revere 2.0! Paul Revere was famous for saying “The British is Coming, The British is Coming”! Use that same mindset in 2011 to promote your blog.

Tell everyone you know, put it on your business card, promote your blog on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc. , place your link on your greeting cards put it on T-shirts, mugs, get a tattoo!

 Do everything you can online and offline to let people know that you have a blog, (but make sure your neck tattoo isn’t permanent, you don’t want to be that guy that still has “Pets.com 4 Life” on his neck).

Like I said before, I am nowhere near the SEO expert , but I do know content and social media, so hopefully some of my tips can help you increase your traffic in 2012 and beyond.

What tactics have you used to increase your blog’s traffic?
