Luckily, you have full control over your blog. So on-site optimization is easy-as long as yot know what to do.
Here is how you can optimize your blog for high search engine rankings.
1: Primary keywords in domain name.
If you haven't registered a domain name, you're in luck! Don't do it just yet. Go to a keyword research tool and identify a set of primary keywords that you would like to rank for. For example, if you are starting an SEO blog, then your keywords may look like "SEO Expert Blog". Have those keywords in your domain name. This is very important. If you have already installed the blog on a new domain, proceed to the next tip.
2: Friendy URLs.
Worpress is the most popular blogging platform on the internet, so I'm going to assume that your blog is hosted on Wordpress as well. The default setting for the URLs is not set to make your pages search engine friendy. You content URL will look something like this:
what you want is for your main keywords to appear in the page title and the page url. To do that, go to your admin control panel. Then click on permalinks. Select a format that you like. Any one will do, as long as you change it from the default setting.
You url may now look something like this:
Notice how much cleaner the url looks? Also, your main keywords are now in your post title.
3: Use a light weight template.
Wordpress allows bloggers to add and install plugins and templates. Unfortunately, some templates are so complex that they make the entire blog looks cluttered. A cluttered blog is never a good thing. You have to remember-search engines always prefer simplicity. The easier it is for the bots to crawl and determine the theme of your blog, the better it is. So don't use templates that have too many files to load or are too complited. Just use a clean and simple template.
