Target Keyword Phrases In Your Blog Posts

This allows you to create traffic for your online business around the keyword list that you build. The key to making this work for your online business is learning basic search engine optimization.

Now this doesn’t mean you should stuff each post with random fills, make sure it fits the posts topic.

Another great tip is to try to use you main keywords in your post titles too.

Write Short Blog Posts

Many bloggers think that blog posts have to be long in order to be successful.

Instead target one main point and keep your blog posts at 200 and 300 words. That way you can create more posts. This allows you to target more keyword phrases and ultimately derive more traffic from them.

Social Bookmark All Your Blog Posts

This way people can find and read your posts if they’re distributed throughout the internet.

This means getting them in social networking sites such as Twitter and Face Book and social directories such as Buzz, Digg, Stumbleupon, etc.

These also serve as search engine bait and can create search engine traffic from the directories themselves.

Short Blog Articles For Article Marketing

Most article directories want articles of 400 words or more.

You can take you smaller blog posts and combine them to make it unique and longer.

Then submit it to a handful of the top article directories including Ezine Articles and Go Articles.

Authors are allowed to include a small biography at the bottom of the article and this is a great place to put a link back to your about me blog page.

If you are using a signature file at the end of article, remember to use your most relevant keywords as your anchor text for your link so that you can improve your SEO rankings

Also it is better to link back to a page or post on your blog instead of just the main blog url, this shows Google that your sharing actual content, not just your site url.

These are proven techniques to drive traffic to your blog and start making money online.
