    Hey guys,

    I have a couple of blogs that I'm just starting to monetize. Nothing very lucrative, just things that interest me and that I know about. I'm still learning how to improve Google rankings. Do they consider your traffic when they decide how to rank you or is it just content and relevance? For example, do you get higher placements if you had lots of visits driven by twitter post links and things like that or is that a waste of time? I'm in low competition keyword territory but I'm not sure the best way to grow it.

    Also, are there fairly simple ways to handle back linking without just paying someone to do it for you? I don't have much pie to share if you know what I mean. I have time and effort but that's about the only thing I'm looking to invest right now. I'm a content writer so I can easily write myself more fresh articles if that's what I need. Any tips?

    You are content writer that's good for you and your blog. Can you tell me about blog current rank?
    I will advise you, When you write any article, you should be focus on keyword means when you write any article please include including keyword and one more think about keyword ; you should not using keyword more then 2-3 time, if you use keyword more time in one article, it's called keyword stuffing. So please memorize this point.
    You can also follow these steps are:-
    1) Tag with keyword, Tag with image.
    2) Promotion local site, High PR site
    3) Then you will Get more traffic
    4) Improve ranking

    Try to buy scrapebox if you currently don't have and blast your site to increase its rankings!

    you can do it manually and if you're just starting that's the best way to go. just do some directory submissions in a few good directories, some article submission in top article directories ( this should be easy especially if you write the content yourself) a little bookmarking and a few web 2.0 properties and you should see a steady increase. When they start bringing you real cash and can invest you can start doing other stuff.

    What do you mean by image tag?

    Good advice about keyword stuffing though!

    Always use google keywords to select a keyword before writing up a certain article, use the 3% density rule meaning 1000 words you write 30 times that keyword must appear within your article post - keep your tags no-index before you get deindex'd

    When you upload an image, be sure to include the image name and an ALT TAG so that google knows what it is looking at. It cant see the image per say so the bot has to read (via the alt tag) what the image is. Use keywords that fit into the topic of your post.

    First you have to decide which keywords you want to rank for like cat, cat collars, train your cat etc., then you have to write articles around your content lots of articles. Google loves fresh content, the hardest part will be studying your competitors link structure then building a link structure which is stronger and more diverse. Usually at that point you need to either learn SEO or get someone to do it. Good Luck

    Thanks for accept my suggestion. Tagging is very significant element of search engine crawler, you know keyword tagging very well. Image tagging means simply tag with image just like keyword tagging but code are change.

    The code are <img src="smiley.gif" alt="Smiley face" height="42" width="42" />
