I understand the pain that you may have because you can’t seem to drive any traffic to your website. The days of “build your website and they will come” is long over my friend. But you have worked hard to put good quality information on your website and nobody is going to get to read it. So how can you help get your website noticed?
OPTIMIZE YOUR POST PAGES!
It is a very simple and easy thing to do, as all that you have to do is change the permalink that links to the individual post. Many internet marketers have a problem with this, as they just title it SEO1, SEO2, or something along those lines. While that may help you keep the posts organized by what order you wrote them in, it will not help you get noticed in the search engines.
I previously wrote an article on long tail keywords (wrote it earlier today), and this post is really just an extension on that idea. If you write tag your post pages well then that will help them get ranked a lot higher strictly through the SEO.
And the best part is that labeling your post pages’ permalinks with a high quality title is very easy, as all you have to do is summarize your post. Come up with a 3-6 word long phrase that really summarizes what you had to say in the post, and you will see these posts (and soon your whole website) ranking higher in Google, Yahoo, Bing, and all the other search engines!
