Have you tried to join lots of forums? Does those forums helps your site to gain more traffic? As an SEO, does it help you learn more things about the field that you choose?

Well, I am a SEO and joining forums really help me a lot, specially if I want to learn something.

There are lots of forums out there that will really help a SEO to learn different things. Aside from buying different books and searching from the net. You can also ask different web masters who are on the forums. They will surely answer you back that will make you improve on what you are doing. You can also ask them for some other tools that can help your site and even you as a SEO.

Some popular forums that I know are Digital Point, Google community, V7 Network, SEO chat, and many more. You can also join blogging forums if you want to promote your site or if you also want to ask something. Bloggeries, Blogger Forums, Blogger Talk, Authority Blogger are some of the popular blogging forums.

Through those forums your site can gain traffic. Usually, SEO and bloggers leave their links on their signature. Because of that links it will be crawled by Google and count as your back links. You can also ask those web masters if they can check your site and that's for traffic.

Those that I mentioned are some of the benefits that you will get if you join forums. But, as a forum member you should be aware that there are lots of spammers out there who will going to spam your site. Some spammers will send you a private message or sometimes they will leave some comments on your blog. If you suspect about someone who is spamming your site you can immediately report it to the moderators of the forums where you are a member. As a moderators they will check if your suspect is true and they will warn or worst they will banned the said member who is a "spammer".

I am already a member of some popular SEO and blogging forums out there and I can say that I am learning. Every time I logged in on those forums I learn something different. And sometimes I even help other members. As an SEO, I think helping other newbies are very much full filing. Seeing them improving and learning just like you.

As of now, joining those forums is really a big help. Not only to my blogs but also to my job as a SEO. They easily answers my question every time I can't understand something. Even though, there are some criticism but through that criticism I am improving. Those bad words can make me stronger and strive harder. And I think, I don't wanna quit.

Images to traffic

3/12/2008 02:21:00 PM | with 0 comments »

Do you have some images on your blog? If you do, do you know that it can be used as a source of traffic?.

We added images on our blog to make it more appealing and sometimes to make your post look more lively. And sometimes we only uses images and there's no other text on it.

In uploading different images you can used different image hosting site such as ImageShack, photobucket, flicker and even google page creator. By using those image hosting site you have a little chance to lose those images. Because sometimes if you just copy and paste the exact URL of the image there are possibility that the images will lose on the SERP.

If you already do some uploading on the image hosting site of your choice make sure that you use good keyword names for your images. For example you have an image of a baby crying you can save that images with the name baby_crying.jpeg. In that way when a google will easily think that your site is a baby crying. Think of names that will be easily crawled by google you have to be creative in giving your images a names.

After naming and embedding your images on your site used the attribute "alt". As you notice on the other website when you hover your mouse on the images there are text that shows up. It means that, the site owner uses Alt tag in their images.

Here's an example:


The alt="Batman Begins' sequel the dark knight" is the alt attribute of the image darkknightkp8.jpg. Just make sure that your alt tag is descriptive and not too long.

In putting images on your site make sure its not that big. Because the bigger the images the longer it takes to load your site. You can use width and height attributes on that way, the look of your images on your site maybe smaller but when the viewer click it, it will display a bigger resolution. And also try to look for an images with a smaller file size this is also for the quicker loading time of your site.

Some bloggers uses CSS tricks for their images they uses div tags for their images. Through div tags you can put your images on the left side of your post or on the right and you can even add some border on it.

Through those ways that I mentioned, your images will soon be a big help to improve the traffic of your site and your site can be more visible on SERP.

Link Building

What is link building? How does link building helps a site?

On my own definition, link building is a strategy where a SEO or blogger will look for different sites that are related to their site. They will collect those site and ask the owner if they are allowing link exchange.

Link building is the practice of obtaining links from other wen sites to your sites. There are some website who will allow a webmaster to link to their website for free and there are some that you will need to pay. It was said to be that paying for a reciprocal link are more effective.

Google are giving more importance to those site who has lots of relevant links. The more links your site have the more popular it is. One way that you can do for your site to be popular is link building. I know it is so difficult but if you really want your site to rank you will do everything that you can.

Through this article, you will find some information and ways on how to build links for your site.

I'll start with directory submission. There are lots of directories available on the web just make sure that you will put your listings on the right category. Directories are sometimes free and don't ask for reciprocals. And some are paid ones. Those free directories allows you to add your site but that will take time before they will approve it. You can also look for a link partner. Those webmasters who has sites with the same niche as your site. You can email them and ask them politely for link exchange.

If someone is asking for a link exchange before saying "yes" make sure to check their site first. You can do that by checking if that particular site was already crawled by Google by "site:domainname.com" where domainname is the URL of the site. You can also use some link checker that is available on the web like Link Popularity Check.

Article Submission can also help in link building. You can easily write your own article and just add your link to it. Then after writing your own article you can easily submit that article to different free article submission. Just follow their guidelines for your article to be approved.

Another way to build link is by social bookmarking. There are lots of people who is into it. Technorati, StumbleUpon, Digg and Del.icio.us are some of the popular social bookmarking site.

And last but not the least is commenting to other sites. You can easily look for different site with interesting niche. You can leave your link on the site that you choose just by commenting on it.

Those are some ways of link building that can make your site rank on Search Engines. But, looking for backlinks is not the only way for your site to rank on Search Engine and to gain page rank (PR). You also need to update your site more often the more fresh content your site has the more readers that will visit your site.
