Howdy! Thanks for checking out my post. Today I’m going to reveal a few quick and easy SEO secrets. A lot of people think that SEO (search, engine, optimization) is a super complicated procedure and don’t get me wrong it can be. What I’m going to mainly focus on today are some of the quick and simple things you can do to your posts to give them a better chance of ranking on the first page of Google.
One of the first Quick and Easy SEO Secrets I have for you is adding at least one picture to your post.
Adding a picture helps for a lot of reasons. Pictures make your posts more entertaining and more engaging for thereader also they help the author of the post get their message across. However if you’re adding a picture and you want it to help optimize your post for the search engines you’ll want to make sure the keyword you’re using is in the title of the picture. Personally I put the keyword in everything, the title , the description, and the caption.
The second Google SEO Secret I have for you is using H tabs.
The H tabs are the heading tabs you’ll want to put your keyword in so it’s easier for Google to recognize the content of your post. As you’ll notice in this post I have different H tabs with my keyword in it. The main heading tabs you’ll need to put your keyword in are heading 1 heading 2 and heading 3. Here’s some shameless examples.

The H2 tag looks like this: SEO Secrets
and The H1 tag Looks like this: SEO Secrets
The fourth Google SEO Secret I have for you is putting an internal link in to your post.
O.K. so we’ve gone over the picture the H tags and now we have to put in a link. Links are pretty easy to put in a post and internal links are really easy. Most of the blogging platforms you’ll come across will have a little box with chain link on it. All you have to do is highlight the words you want to turn into a link and push the link button. After you hit the link button a bunch of your old post titles will appear and all you have to do is choose one of them and hit the add link button. That’s all there is to it you just added an internal link to your post.
Now this Secret SEO Tip is about putting the right amount of keywords in your post.
Keyword density is probably the most complicated part of optimizing your content. The rule of thumb for keyword density is 1 keyword per 100 so in a 500 word post you should have your keyword in it about 5 times. Truthfully I’m not a big fan of keyword density I just write my posts and mainly stick to putting my keywords in the H tags. One thing you have to realize when you write optimized content is that you are writing for people too. Having a post that Google likes might get you to the top of the search results for a while but if people don’t like reading your post it probably won’t stay there for long.
The Last SEO Secret is back linking your post.
I could write a whole article just on back linking but in this article I just give you a quick overview of what a back link is. Basically a back link is a way for someone to get to your post from another place. There are different kinds of back links but one example of a back link could be a link in a tweet on Twitter or a link in a Facebook update. Another kind of a back link is having a link to your post from someone else’s website. An example of this might be if you’re a guest blogger on a major website and you link your guest post to the original post on your website. Different back links have different values too (see I can go off) a link from a powerful website or an educational website have more power than a tweet on Twitter so if you can get a powerful back link from a big website that will really help the SEO of your post.
That’s all the secret SEO tips I have for you today but as a Bonus I’ll let you in on some of the SEO secret Weapons I use. One is called SEO Pressor. SEO Pressor is a plug-in that can be installed on a wordpress blog and what it does is it analyzes your posts and gives you a rating on your posts so you can see what you need to do to optimize them. SEO Pressor is a great tool for someone who is just starting out. Another SEO secret weapon I have in my arsenal is Tibe Pro. Tribe Pro is great for getting back links on auto pilot and increasing the reach and the SEO of your posts. The last SEO secret weapon I’ll mention right now (because I do have others MMMWWAAA! HA! HA! HAAAA!) is the Empower Network. The Empower Network is a powerful blogging platform that automatically gives your posts more authority and more power just because the website itself is so powerful. Posting on an Empower Network blog is a lot like posting on an authority site like Hubpages or Squidoo but instead of the site owners having control over your content you have all the control.
I hope you found these Google SEO secrets helpful, and I hope you don’t buy the SEO secret weapons I mentioned (less competition you understand)……. Just kidding, but if you’re new and your not sure where to start get an Empower Network blog first because it comes with a fantastic fast start program and you’ll get the most out of your money.
