How To Optimize Your Website URL?

One would think that, with the URL(s) of a website being its web address, that people would pay more attention to it. However, statistics and a variety of examples on the World Wide Web show that this is often the most overlooked aspect about a website when it comes to Search Engine Optimization (SEO). And this oversight remains even if you have been careful in deciding your website’s master URL.

Let’s take a common example to explain why optimizing your website’s URL for search engines is important: You blog. Now here, not only does your blog have a common URL address, but each and every post and link in your blog has a URL address of its own. So it’s prudent to ensure that all these URLs are optimized for searches. And the easiest way to do that is to keep two main points in mind:

1) Don’t Use Special Characters in the URL

Don’t use the “&” symbol or any other special characters as part of any URL address on your website if you can help it. Use letters, numbers, and hyphens instead; those are fine. However, including any other special character in the URL will only make it less likely to list on search result pages, as it is harder and trickier for search engines to crawl through those URL addresses effectively. (In simpler terms, search engines work better at crawling through and matching words, numbers, and hyphens to the appropriate keywords in web searches. Special characters, on the other hand, throw them off.)

2) Avoid Conjunctions in the URL

Most of the time, URL’s are formed based on our headings (in the case of blog posts, for example). Which is fine. But the URL would be better optimized if you avoided conjunctions and prepositions like “but”, “and”, “on”, “to”, etc. – unless they are very pertinently necessary as a keyword or searchable term.

LSI: The Perfect Alternative To Avoid Keyword Stuffing

LSI: The Perfect Alternative To Avoid  Keyword Stuffing

Since 2013, Google’s search algorithm updates have turned old SEO techniques on its head and have had a lot of websites scrambling to fix the trouble they gained in the aftermath. To be perfectly fair though, a lot of those old SEO techniques were unfair on the users. And although many websites followed such SEO techniques mainly because their competition was following the same as well, many sites twisted the old SEO techniques to practice Black Hat SEO. And it is precisely to overcome such websites and to improve their users’ search experience that Google keeps changing and developing its algorithm to fish out the better web content from the poor quality ones. And one of the surest ways that Google’s changed its search settings is by ranking pages with stuffed keywords lower than it used to.

However, if keyword stuffing is your only folly regarding your website content and your content is still valid, then you have a pretty easy way to correct it without needing to overhaul your entire content. And that “way” is by implementing LSI in your content.

LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing)

LSI stands for Latent Semantic Indexing. And it is Google’s updated indexing technique to identify patterns in the text. In simpler terms, it means that Google has now developed its search engine algorithm to find related words, phrases, and synonyms that relate to the keywords in a search. So, to fix the many, many keywords in your content, all you have to do is retain the minimum amount of keywords, and then rephrase the other keywords into phrases and terms that simply mean the same as your original keyword. In fact, even if you have less than the minimum requirement of particular keywords in your content, if you still have enough terms related to those keywords in your content, your content can still be pulled up as a relevant result to that particular keyword-search.

Advantages

And the even better part is, LSI automatically increases the quality and readability of your content by its very purpose and definition.

3 SEO Tips To Boost YouTube Ranking

It’s not just content and images that can benefit from SEO (Search Engine Optimization), but also videos. And, considering how visually-oriented today’s audiences are, optimizing your YouTube videos for search engines is more important now than it ever was before.
Now, considering the YouTube is the big Kahuna of all things video-related on the Internet, it makes sense that what you should be concentrating on is boosting your video(s)’ ranking on YouTube. So, now that we’ve established why boosting your YouTube rankings is important, let’s check out the ways in which to do so:

1) Use Keywords in the Video Tags

Use video keywords in your video tags. These will help Google find them and list them on their search engine. Be extensive, and choose keywords that suit your video; don’t just write whatever is popular at the moment. This will help your video rank in both Google and YouTube listings.

2) Use Long Video Descriptions

Writing online might follow the principle of being concise. But it’s better if you forego that rule when it comes to video descriptions. Your description does not have to go on for pages. But make it descriptive and long enough to fit in as much information about the video as you can. Try to work pertinent keywords into your video description as well. This will help YouTube rank and pull your video for those related searches faster and better.

3) Cross-Post Your Video(s) on Social Media and on Your Website

Don’t just upload your videos on YouTube and think your done with it. You’ll need to share those videos on your social media accounts (such as Google+, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, etc.) as well as on your website. The more possible places it’s posted, the better the chances are that it will be watched, and, consequently, the better it will be ranked.

Follow these tips, and your YouTube videos will have much better visibility.

3 Benefits Natural Link Building

To many, in the SEO field, “Natural Links” are a myth akin to the Loch Ness monster in Scotland: Practically impossible and probably unrealistic.
