Basic SEO: Understanding Search Engines

Before you can start implementing SEO methods and strategies on your site, you first need to understand how search engine works and how it can increase your site traffic when used. First, search engines are online tools that allow an individual to search for information in the broad expanse of the Internet through the use of keywords.

Search engines will use the keywords keyed in by the user and look for specific matches in different sites on the World Wide Web. If a match is found, it will be placed in search engine results for an individual to use.

Note, however, that not all results from search engines are useful to an individual. In most cases, the first page of search engine results are the most utilized of all. So in order to increase the traffic of your site using search engines, you need to target the top rank list to be successful in this project.

Keyword Optimization

Since keywords play an integral role in search engine results, its only sound thinking to place these in your site so that you will be included in search engine results – this method is called keyword optimization.

The first step of keyword optimization is to come up with a set of keywords that will reflect the content of your site. Try to vary your keywords so that you can expand your search engine coverage with it.

Now that you have come up with a set of keywords to be used in your site, you need to place it in strategic areas to maximize its use; such places in your site include:

• Site address or domain name
• title of your site
• description of your site
• content in different pages of your site

Note, however, that spamming these keywords on your site can guarantee a high ranking position in search engine results. But the only drawback here is that you can get banned by these search engines or your site gets black listed in their index.

At present, a lot of Web users are in a rush to get some .EDU backlinks. Now, why are they in a rush to acquire this stuff? It’s simple.

Since websites ending in .EDU are considered trusted sites by Google, they are generally credible, and often webmasters think that a link from an .EDU page with PageRank is more valuable than a link from another page with the same PageRank.

.EDU Backlinks Carry Greater Search Engine Weight

Today, it is generally accepted that .edu and .gov backlinks carry a larger weight for search engine algorithms. Despite the fact that search engine giant Google has never admitted it, most seo and online marketing analysts confirm that .edu and .gov links outperform other extensions in terms of search ranking and leverage. There are several ways to collect those links, and they usually depend on whether your blog or site has content that is relevant to educational and governmental websites or not.

How Would I Be Able To Get A .edu Backlink?

The first step in acquiring a .edu or .gov backlink that points to your website, is to locate sites related to your topic ending with those extensions. One way would be to use the Google operator site:.edu, and site:.gov combined with the keywords of your blog.

This should enable you to find an extensive list of such sites. Once you have a list of sites, try exploring them and select the ones you think would have a higher probability of sharing some external links with your blog. Lastly, contact the webmaster of those sites and point them to the content on your blog that could be relevant and valuable to those sites. It is always a good idea to link first to the sites before requesting the backlink.

Look For Sites or Blogs That Have Similar Content To Your Site

By using the Google operator site:.edu,site:.gov and the keywords of your blog, you should be able to locate an extensive list of sites related to your keyword. Those operators would filter and show you only sites from .EDU or .GOV domains related to your keyword. An example would be, typing these in google: site:.edu “keyword”,
or site:.gov “keyword”. Remember to notify the webmaster and tell them about your blog, link to them first and then ask for permission to get linked on theirs.

Look For .EDU Blogs or Forums

In searching for .edu blogs, you could also use the Google operators too. With the following operators typed in Google, you could limit the Google search to blogs or forums with the .edu extension related to your keyword.

Ex: site:.edu inurl:blog “keyword”

Once you’re in, do your best to participate in the forums and discussions. And it’s important that you don’t SPAM, since this would be highly unethical. Then after, you may leave your link there.

Aside from the methods mentioned earlier, there are also other ways to get a link to your site from an .EDU website. One good example would be to design or sponsor a theme for a blogging engine, and hope that an .EDU page will use it, which happens sometimes.
