In this post of SEO Trends, Geo-Targeting, Content Principles, Linking Practices, etc, we cover the issues of Geo-Targeting, Geo- Authority, Relevancy, Ratio, etc. and how to maximize both Geo- Authority and Relevancy to fit your strategic SEO strategy.
Geo- Targeting SEO Trends
The first issue we’ll be discussing is the authority of your target audience. The working majority of SEO trends is done on getting links back to your website. So how does Google determine an audience’s expertise?
In my opinion, it’s pretty simple: Google postings and comments. If the audience displays to an empty profile or homepage then they can’t add more input unless they are posting or commenting in a forum. While these observations are simple enough, our work isn’t done. We still want to discover the best places for posting. So here are some of the research points to discover where your targeted audiences are most likely to be.
Create a List of Forums
To get the immediate list of forums, use the ideas present in any of the lists of forums found in Google Groups or other intelligent search engines. To get the complete list, just go to Google Groups and use the search bar to query the latest notices. Then, click through to each of the result pages. If the forums don’t provide a sufficient number of notice, start a new one.
The forums that you want to create a thread on are those that are indexed by Google, such as MySpace and YouTube, but are not signed to any other user or webpage. A method to create found threads in MySpace is to add a link that will tag it as a ” opinions” or “help post” on one of your existing published blogs or websites. Other websites that are good places for creating permanent one-way links are Squidoo and blogs.
Spend a little time at these websites and see what tags are available.
Creating Blog Posts
If you have a blog post on your website, the blog can be used to target users and customers that are interested in what you have to offer. Using the previous example of MySpace, you would first tag your blog using the title of your website, followed by a descriptive tag. You would then create a post on your blog using one of the selected tags. While you can tag your blog using one or more keywords, you may choose to try the entire sentence and word set used by humans. Since the search engines are still in the process of indexing your blog, this post will often not rank well based on the keywords you choose. A good piece of advice to follow if your intention is to get your blog organically ranked for your targeted keywords is to create a post that uses your main keyword, with other slightly related words to fill out the post. You should also use the primary keyword in the headline and first paragraph of your post to help search engines find your blog post.
You have several blog post options that you can use to get your links on other websites that are similar to your own. You can create links by creating your own blog posts, using social bookmarking websites, creating stand-alone websites, and even submitting posts to article directories.
All these methods will help you to create awareness and visibility for your blog. Getting targeted visitors should be your priority, and search engine optimization should be secondary to your priority.
