Three Search Engine Optimization Tips for Newbies!

One thing that I have learned a lot about in my time as a blogger is Search Engine Optimization. Search Engine Optimization is also known as SEO, and that is how we will be referring to it in this post. Today we are going to give you a few tips that will really help when you are just starting out in the scary world of SEO!

1. Title.  Your title is very important, and usually the thing that will lead people to your blog. Think about what people would be searching for to find your post. For example, if your article is about daycare centers, you might want to use a title such as "Pros and Cons of Daycare Centers", or something like that. ALWAYS use the main keyword or topic of your post in the title. 

2. Keywords. Take your topic and develop it into a keyword or keyword phrase (two or three words). Make sure to use your keyword in the title, and then again at least three times in the post. Don't go overboard and make it sound cheesy, but integrate the keyword naturally.

3.Interlinking. Interlinking is one of the greatest ways to build links to your blog. You can do this from other blogs, but also from your own blog! This is easy and can also give your readers info on your topic. For example, if you are talking about your new job, say something like "Remember when I told you about my old job?" and link to that. 

These points are the keys, the first steps to learning about and using SEO! Hope you can make them useful in your daily blogging life!
