 photo SEOGuideHowToLinkTheRightWay_zps21b645a6.jpg

Hi everyone!

It seems like you are all happy with my SEO Guide series, so that’s why I will be doing some more blogposts in the same series with small tips for every blogpost you write.

Internal and external linking

Todays blogpost will be about internal and external linking. Just to refresh everyone’s memory if you are not sure what the difference is between internal and external linking. Internal linking is when you link to a page on you blog, it could be an old blogpost or something else. External linking is when you link to another website, which could be where you bought your bag or something.

How to write your links

You often see people write; you can buy the bag here. It could also be; read more about my thoughts on this product here.

The reason this is bad SEO is that Google doesn’t know what “here” is. Google doesn’t know “here” is referring back to the bag you were talking about earlier, which is on your picture.

Instead you should write something like; you c...

Why Nofollow Links Are Important!

Hi everyone!

Yesterday there was an entire #fblchat dedicated to different blogging aspects of the law. This chat also included the attribute rel=nofollow which got a lot of people confused and nervous so I decided to do a blogpost on the subject clearing things up a bit.

What are nofollow links?

First, of all the rel=nofollow attribute is not something you are legally obligated to use, it’s an attribute for search engines. The point of the rel=nofollow attribute is to tell Google not to follow a specific link.

Google is crawling links on different websites to find the best search result for us users. This means that a website with a lot of links on the web might get a higher pagerank, this is why companies want to pay you to link their website on your blog. When you link a website let’s say hm.com you are telling Google that this website is to be trusted and that you like it.

SEO Guide for WordPress

Hi everyone!

This blogpost is a bit late, but here it finally is; SEO Guide for WordPress! I already did a blogpost for people using Google Blogger and an introduction for SEO if you are interested in that.

With WordPress you don’t have the advantage of Google already knowing your blog, so you have to do some work for it to be noticed. I downloaded two plugins, but you could probably do it all with one plugin I just like both for different things.

All in One SEO

The first plugin is All in One SEO, which I use for my Google Analytics tracking code in and it’s also where I gave my blog it’s title, meta description and keywords.

Go to Plugins -> Search All in One SEO -> Install

all in one seo plugin

Now you are ready to use the plugin. I would keep most of the things as they are, except write the title, meta description and keywords as mention and then you have some fields for Google Analytics, Google Plus, Pinterest, etc.

Yoast SEO

The second plugin is Yoast SEO, this is probably the one you will use ...

Beginner’s Guide to SEO: blogging help

seo

SEO also known as search engine optimization is something not all bloggers think about, they maybe don’t know how to do it, or they are already doing it without thinking about it.

SEO can be very complicated, but there are some easy tricks you can do to improve you SEO on your blog. I’m an educated multimedia designer, so I have learned a couple of things in school that every blogger should be able to figure out. I hope this Beginner’s Guide to SEO can help you.

Difference between WordPress and Blogger

First thing first, there is a huge difference in whether you are using WordPress or Blogger as your blogging platform. Blogger is made by Google and therefore a lot more SEO friendly compared to WordPress, also Google will know your blog from the first day you start it since it will be in Google’s database.

If you have a self-hosted or a WordPress blog you will have a little more work to do since Google doesn’t know your blog and it’s not made to please Google.

3 Tips For Google Blogger’s To Think About!

3-tips-google-blogger

Today is three tips for Google Bloggers that can make a difference in how much response you get from your readers. Blogging Language, commenting system and domain name are three factors to think about for every blog! I hope you will find these suggestions helpful and please feel free to ask any questions.

Language

Think about what language your blog’s settings are sat till! If you want to blog in English and attract people from all around the world, but you are from Spain and that’s the language your blog settings are sat till, than it will make it hard for people from the rest of the world to understand things like commenting on your blog, which will be in Spanish.

Comments

Think about your commenting system, is it really necessary to make people type in those letters and numbers to comment on your blog? When I had a Google Blogger blog I didn’t use any of the approve comments or letters and numbers system before people wrote a comments, because you never see that on “famous” bl...

Blogger vs. WordPress

blogger_wordpress

Hi lovely people!

Today is going to be my first post for the blogging tips series. I’m going to start out with “Blogger vs. WordPress” as the title says. All of you who are reading this right now are probably already blogging so that’s why I’m focusing on WordPress vs. Blogger. Remember this is all based on my experience with both WordPress and Blogger and some people might see it different.

Google blogger

Google’s blogger is the easiest way to go if you are totally new and don’t know a thing about the internet. Blogger’s newest design makes it easy to navigate and there are a lot of free things and help to be found on the internet. Blogger also provides some things as site statics, SEO and an account to comments on other people’s blog that leads right back to your blog.

WordPress

WordPress has to different ways to start a blog, a free one and a paid self-hosted one...

Blogging Tips Series

Hi!

A new week has begun and I have decided on trying to do some different posts this week. I know I’m new in the blogger world and don’t have much experience within the area. Since I’m studying Multimedia Design & Communication I do have some knowledge in this field and that’s why I want to do a little series where I post some tips for new bloggers, but hopefully also some tips for some of the bloggers who have been doing this for a while.

I have been blogging once before using Google’s blogspot (tanjaslookbook.blogspot.com) and right now I’m using WordPress CMS to manage this blog so I have a little experience with both systems.

As you can see I have started this blog, but I have also helped Christina Thorup setting up her blog and I own tanjamortensen.dk where you can see my portfolio if you are curious.

My plan is to write about everything from blogger systems, SEO, Google analytics, themes, marketing, domain names, design, coding, etc.
