How to Boost our Search Engine Ranking – Part 2




In my last post I have discussed about the important of creating great content that people will link to, providing comment on high-ranking blog sites and submitting contents to high-authority article sites such as Ezine. 

Today, I would like to share with you the important of using Social Media to increase your search engine placements. A blog is one of the best ways to increase your search engine rankings. Why? Blogs and blog posts are natually search engine friendly because they are simply text-rich, link-rich and they’re frequently updated webpages. If you follow some of our simple rules for SEO, your blog can rank much higher than your usual static website. I will discuss this more along with other best practices later on how to ‘optimise’ our blog site by using appropriate keywords, tags and backlinks.

Apart from Blogging, other high-ranking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Flickr are equally important. For me, my Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn accounts are higher results for the search query ‘michael choong’ in Google than my weblog itself. So, why not create accounts on these sites for your business? 

Lastly, please do not underestimate the power of social networking to help you to be found – not just on social media sites themselves but within Google. Having a presence on social sites help people to find your business even if they do not use these sites themselves.
