Keywords for Better Page Ranking                                                                                                                                            keywords_pagerank

This is a big and important one… I am not trying to over exaggerate this strategy. Setting up your own blog and submitting articles has the advantage to enabling you to rank higher for keywords that your website does not or might not have a good chance to rank very well for.

Page ranking is a term indicating where you rank in the search engines for any given search term. If you have done everything right, you will go higher for the keywords that you would like to rank for in your market. As far as I know this is everyone’s goal and it talks a lot of technical savvy to do it.

That being said, posting articles on your blog enables you to spend a lot of time covering stories about your market place and therefore enables you to write, find or buy keyword rich articles that you can post in order to give you a dominate position for the keywords of choice in your market.

For example when I was selling real estate, my market was London Ontario. Therefore I would do keyword research to find keywords for real estate in London Ontario.  Now you can see in the last couple of sentences how I was able to mention certain keywords.

Well after getting out of real estate for a couple years and building and Real estate agent website and training business, I decided to see if I could get my website back on page one or two again for the search term London Ontario real estate. Well, I did this in three days.

I was also able to get my blog Strategic Selling Tools on to page one for the term selling tools in two days, as well I was able to get our main website onto page one and two in less than a week for real estate agent websites… now that is cool.

Back Linking and Anchor Text

As mentioned one of the best reasons for blogging is to be able to push your websites higher in the search rankings for select keywords. One of the best ways to get your websites to do this is to combine your keywords with what is called anchor text.

This might sound a little technical however it’s rather easy once you have done it a few times. You simply take your keyword or keyword phrase and use the text editor link inserting tool that comes with most text editors.

You simply highlight the keywords that you are interested in ranking for and then insert the text the link that you want to have the word associated with. For example I would like to have my company website SellingToolz Limited rank high for real estate agent websites. I would simply take the words real estate agent websites and highlight them and insert the URL in the appropriate field. From there the relationship will be born.

As mentioned I have done this as a live example with the web site, simply by making the association to the words London Ontario Real Estate along with several other strategies I have managed to push the site to page one for this search term.

Now if I do this enough eventually I will start to increase my search engine rankings.
