Great advice in this thread.. Thanks folks.

 

I admit, I have found myself looking at Google Analytics and wondering why we don't get more search engine traffic.. 

Pretty much all we get is people searching for "see debt run".. lol.

 

We will keep focusing on content and writing good articles, and try not to look at that stuff for another couple of months :)

I probably should just ignore google analytics for the next… 6 months or so. :)

This has been some great info, people. Thanks!

I always write what I want to say first, then fill out the info into the All In One SEO plugin. I don't really worry about writing for SEO, I let that happen on it's own. Personally, some (not all) of the bloggers that write for SEO—just kinda suck. I'd much rather read what they really want to say than the version that will get them better ranking and traffic. Just my opinion. Embarassed

Have you tried looking in your Google Webmaster Account to see which keywords you're ranking for?  You can get a good list of "potential" keywords that you're getting impressions from.  It's definitely a start!

Start with finding approach that allows to post consistently new blog post 2 or 3 times a week. And do this for years.

That is the basis.

Select a long list of keywords that are somewhat related to each other and start writing regular posts that are SEO optimized for one of these keywords. Link internally between your posts for the keywords that are most important to you. Start with the keywords that have a few thousand search results per month and the lowest competition. Then expand.

And keep hanging in there for years. 

Agree with everything. but that low competition is for the advertisers. It indicated there's not much competition for that key word. So as a ad seeker I would be more interested in those as those will cost me less money per click.

 

As a publisher we can still target high competition, but that only ensures higher per click revenue, as competition drive the price up.

For SEO this metrix doesn't have any significance

Correct, first write what you want then modify here and there as per keyword demand.

 

Example, I received a guests post "pors and cons of self-filing tax return" After my research I changed the title to

"pros and cons of preparing your own taxes", changed a few in-body sentences, added a few keywords in all-in-one-seo box and published.

 

I do that little tweaks on post written by me as well but only after the post is ready.

I agree. I was all about SEO for about a week. It was just too much work imho and I would much rather focus on writing what I want to write about, not simply appeasing the search engines.

 

With that said, some of the suggestions offered on here are excellent. And look into some plug ins like All in One SEO Pack.

This is what I did as well.  I wrote content on what I wanted to write about, and then tweaked them later down the road to optimize it.

This is what I do too, pretty much. Except I write first, plug it into Scribe, and then see what it says my main keyword is + make sure it's not too dense.

Aaah, great. That is new to me. Learned again something. I always thought that "competition" was also an indication for how much SEO competition there is for that keyword. This is a crucial difference. Thanks for pointing it out.

Big popular keywords, here I come. Now the advertisers will start knocking the door ;)
