Google Blogsearch - 5 Secrets to Being Ranked #1

Google Blogsearch - 5 Secrets to Being Ranked #1

Similar to when the popular kids in high school got to choose their team members in gym class, Google Blogsearch leaves the weaklings and so-called losers behind. If your blog isn't popular, it won't be part of the elite blog group that is ranked by Google. In other words, your blog won't be on page 1 of Google Blogsearch. It will be on page 570-or worse.

But, don't run from the idea of blogs just yet. Blogs are an excellent way to market and promote your website, increase SEO, and drive targeted traffic to your website.

It's a tough life for blogs when it comes to Google Blogsearch, but with the right attitude, effective SEO strategies, powerful networking techniques, and stellar web copy, your blog will reach celebrity status on Google Blogsearch in no time-all you have to do is start playing Google's game.

It's all about popularity when it comes to ranking high, and there are a lot of factors that determine your degree of popularity. But, how does one become so admired? You must prove to Google that your blog is high quality.

• Approach popular, like-minded bloggers, and ask if you could be a guest blogger: Google looks highly upon blogs mentioned on other blogs because it illustrates that your blog provides intellectual material that ignites curiosity and discussion in the online community. Aside from other blogs, if Google finds your blog's URL on emails, chats, and social bookmarking sites, Google considers this a positive indicator that your blog is high quality.

• Attach the RSS feed widget to your blog: RSS feed stands for Really Simple Syndication, which is a file containing a brief amount of information-a headline and synopsis-and a link to the full content on the blog. Voluntary subscribers to specific blog RSS feed will receive this information through their RSS readers. Google can detect if your blog is high quality based on how many people subscribe to your blog's RSS feed. In addition, Google can detect how many people visit your blog from their RSS readers and how many times they click through to your blog. And, don't try to trick Google by subscribing to your own blog numerous times. Google's mind readers have already devised a way to detect this type of blog fraud!

• The number of clicks on your blog link when it appears in search engines. If your blog link is continuously clicked on, it illustrates to Google that your blog is receiving a high concentration of readers. If your blog is clicked on more times in search engine results than other blogs, Google sees this as an excellent indicator of blog popularity.

• Inbound links on other blogrolls: The more reputable blogrolls your blog is linked to, the higher Google will rate your blog. Google takes blogrolls seriously because they contain constant outbound links to other blogs. This shows Google you probably have a high respect for and enjoy reading the blogs on your blogroll. Approach your favorite, reputable bloggers, and request them to put your blog on their blogroll. If they agree, you'll have a strategically placed inbound link to your blog. This also expresses to Google that your blog isn't SPAM. The more of these reputable inbound links you have, the higher Google will rank your blog.

• Create appropriate tags and categories for each blog entry: Tags are your blog's keywords and are an extremely important factor when determining what your blog is about. It's important to do your keyword research before creating a list of categories and tags for your blog. Make sure your tags describe the blog post accurately. This will help viewers and Google determine what your blog post is about. Inaccurate tagging and overtagging is frowned upon by both visitors and Google because it is a false representation of your blog content. It's important to effectively use tags if you want to become a reputable blogger and increase targeted traffic while ranking high in Google Blogsearch.
