Consider These 4 Tips When Blogging with Senior Help Desk:

 

 Use Industry- Relevant Keywords:

In order to gain additional exposure for your Senior Help Desk Blog, it is important to consider the keywords or phrases that your target market may be searching for on Google. This way, your blog will start appearing more frequently within Google searches for such keyword phrases. When crafting your Senior Help Desk Blog, Be sure to focus on one topic and use the relevant keywords that are attractive to your target market. List these keywords in the title of your blog, as well as within the blog's content itself. 

A word of caution: use keyword phrases, but don’t over-do it. Search engines, like Google, can sense when an article is over saturated with the same few words or phrases. Integrate them with a natural flow!  Be sure to use the keywords that matter in the title of the post. Yes, cute titles can be eye-catching and thought provocative, but titles that state what the article is about, with consideration to the relevant keywords will help Google best process the information.

 

   Consider Length and Formatting:

It is important to submit a blog of at least 300 words, too. This is important in the eyes of search engines like Google because it proves that the article is of some value; it’s fairly robust in content. As an alternate point of view, do not make your Blog post too long either… you may see some readers dropping off the page. Use boldface for the words and phrases that matter most... also, bullet points are a great tool in helping visually divide your blog post and make it easier to convey your points for the reader in less time. 

 

  Link your Blog to your Website:

Do you know how to develop an “inbound linking strategy”? Here’s a basic overview: Search engines, such as Google, tend to refer websites that others also refer. This proves that your website is a reliable source of information. How can you help prove to Google that your website is a reliable source of information (thus gain more exposure in a keyword search)? Blog! But be sure to include your website’s URL in each entry. Start your inbound linking strategy today by submitting a Senior Help Desk Blog!

 

  Use Local Keywords if Appropriate:

Is your business information, blog post, event, or article regionally-based? Then be sure to include the keywords that matter. This will help Google understand who the information is intended for. In addition, when you include regionally-based keywords, you but back extensively on competition for those important first page search results… and that matters a lot due to the fact that 77% of people searching on Google never click past the first page of a search result.
