Hey busy bloggers looking up for some SEO tips?

Well there are hundreds of seo methods which Google takes into account while ranking up a web page. Website optimization for search engines does not depend on only a single factor which can be said as the most important point for SEO.




Understanding search engine optimization involves various techniques as On-page SEO, Off-page Seo, online-offline SEOs and many more; so a newbie should not get baffled up with so many approaches.

This post lists down the 5 top points which should be considered as SEO FOR BEGINNERS before messing up any other SEO techniques.

Okay so how to optimize website for search engines ?

What comes in your mind first when you hear the word keyword? If I say it is a website about cats what you will think of? Cute cats, ferocious cats? seo for beginners

Well these are the keywords which may come to users mind and you need to include those right keywords in your posts. Even without the help of any keyword research tools you can write a cool post thinking as what user can think of.

Think about what the user going to type and include those words-Matt Cutts


Keyword density is really an important factor for ranking.

An ideal keyword density would be between 1.5-2.5%. I highly recommend using Yoast plugin for WordPress. This plugin provides a content analysis for each post which will automatically give you the keyword density for the targeted keyword used in the post.

But do not intentionally push the targeted keyword in the post which may lead to keyword spamming and ultimately back-fire the SEO process.


The snippet is as important as the Title of the post.

It is the Meta description of the post which is visible in the search engines. So can you understand how crucial it is?
80-90% readers actually read the snippet to get a summary of the post.

Do not let search engine pick up any descriptions on their wish. You can write separate attractive descriptions as snippet which is shown in search results to make it more clickable.


Well this might be a tricky one for a newbie to understand that how can site speed be related to SEO?

But it does affect SEO (and that too very badly).

You can check it here what Matt Cutts says about site speed and ranking.

Site speed also affect user experience widely. Would you wait 10 seconds for a site to load? I guess that is irritating. Most of the user will hardly wait 2-3 seconds for a complete site load. seo for beginners Site speed majorly depends on good web hosting, blog theme, compressed Js and CSS files and many more. You can alter htacess files, header-footer php files if you are a bit comfortable with coding.

  1. SEO and ranking high on organic searches is not easy. I guess it’s a marathon not a sprint! I find that the Yoast plugin is really helpful.

    1. Yes keyword optimization is a very important factor. And should check periodically which keywords you can include in your old posts to bring life to it

  2. Ah I am so embarrassed to have skipped two of the biggest steps here! I have never “submitted” my site to any search engines. Just used my keywords, added text to my image files, and waited for searchers to come to me. I do get some search engine traffic, but not as much as I would like. And I’ve literally never bothered with the snippet, figuring that an interesting start to the post and plenty of text description for each uploaded image would get the job done. SHAME. SHAME. SHAME.

    1. Read as many posts available in SEO. If you want to stand clear in search engines then proper optimization and backlinks is the only answer.

    1. Hey Keyonte how long are you blogging? It takes a minimum of 6 months to see some effect of SEO. Implement the long tail keywords where ever possible. Be consistent in your work you will get the results.

  3. Super helpful post! What do you suggest putting in the snippet? Do you recommend putting a short summary of the entire post or more of a “teaser” to get people to click. I always struggle what to write there.

    Thank you so much!

    1. Hey Chevelle I would recommend to write up the most interesting thing of your post in the snippet. Snippet is as important as the title of the post as it shows up in the search engines. & trust me people read the snippet to decide whether they will click the link or not.
