How may I rank better? Why do I rank with such long terms?
A lot of people still ask me how they can come into the search engines like yahoo or Google with their blogs. A lot of people complaining that they even submitted their URL several times but Google/ Yahoo/ Live search is not reacting and they can do what they want they are not in the index or if then they get found only a few times a week with long term searches witch nobody normal would search for.
Search engines work with a algorithm who says which page is how relevant for getting found. And the most important thing to show the engine that your page is relevant is that a lot of people think the page is relevant. This they show by linking to you. Links are the relevance signs of the Internet. So if you haven’t any links to your blog, how Google should know that it even exists, or if it knows this why should it let you into the index if nobody gives you link credits?
You need links and the best links are links from pages who write about similar stuff like you. But how to get this links?
It is not that hard. Nearly every blog has some comment function and there you can leave your name and your blog URL. So just go around, find some blogs you like and comment there. This are your first links and maybe you have luck and the author likes your blog and links to you some times. But please notice that writing a comment like “Good article, nice pictures” is spam. Comment only if you would say something to this in real life too. I would never go to somebody I don’t know and say “Hey good speech and nice wife!” But to discuss with somebody is allowed and even the most blogger are happy discussing with you.
S o from this you have some links and if you wait some time you will see, that the traffic from the search angines will grow. Maybe you know some friends how have a blog too and ask them if they don’t want to give you a link. Or you are in a social community like myspace ore something? Usually there is some place to spread your blog url too.
