As mentioned in my first post I am going to use various techniques and tricks to boost traffic to this blog. I have already placed a few subtle links on a couple of my other websites that get visited by search engines regularly so some work is already being done. Next I really need to Ã¢â‚¬Å“keyword upÃ¢â‚¬Â this site. Before simply loading the site full of keywords I need to identify what keywords are needed to be effective. What sort of person am I trying to get to visit this blog? Many people do this try to imagine the average visitor (if there is such a thing) and even name them. I wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be going that far, but I think I have a pretty good idea of the average web person Ã¢â‚¬â€œ they are a bit like me.
The sort of terms I am likely to type in a search engine such as google when looking for a site like this are as follows:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“web development discussionÃ¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“web dev blogÃ¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“php discussion boardÃ¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“html and css blogÃ¢â‚¬Â
After writing this piece I will place similar keywords into the title tags, meta tags and alt tags of the site. I should also consider naming image files and directories to match. As content is king, simply by listing these words in this content I am increasing the potential of someone reading this.
After the site is key-worded I need to start researching and finding other sites to share links with. This is an ongoing process but we should start seeing some results soon.
