5 Quick SEO Tricks for Your New Website

There is a rumor going around the blogosphere saying search engine optimization( SEO) is dead. This couldn’t be further from the truth. SEO isn’t dead, it has just evolved to eliminate the effectiveness of black hat techniques like keyword stuffing. Google has developed a set of complex algorithms that put the most valuable and well-written content on the top of the first Search Engine Result Page (SERP). When you learn to make a website, a big part of that is optimizing your site to perform well in the search engines. Here are five quick SEO tricks for your new website.

Ways to Ensure You’ve Chosen the Right Joomla Hosting Provider

When developing a new website using the Joomla platform, it’s common to find yourself tangled in a maze of Joomla hosting options.

The Three Essentials for Staying Safe while Blogging

One of the bi-products of running a successful blog or website (or a series of them) is that people often come to you for advice. Most of us are happy to help the newbies who are just now figuring out how to blog, even if it means answering the same questions over and over again. One thing I’ve noticed as I’ve helped my new proteges get up and running is that many of them aren’t asking the right questions. New bloggers all want to build beautiful and fun and popular sites. Very few of them, strangely enough, are worried about building sites that are secure.

In today’s internet age, security is more important than it ever was. Nefarious types don’t need expensive or extensive setups to hack your site anymore. All they need is a barely web-competent phone and before you know it, *poof*! All of that hard work is down the drain or, worse, suddenly attributed to someone else while a pile of terrible and worrisome stuff sits on your server instead.

There are many different ways to increase the online exposure of your blog, but not all of them are effective in producing real results. However, if implemented correctly, the guest-blogging method can produce quality backlinks and help you gain unprecedented exposure online. The only trick is learning how to get your blog exposed using guest-blogging the right way without being penalized.

Simply writing countless guest-articles for general sites will not produce optimal results. You must have a plan of attack that allows you to maximize your potential and really increase your viewership.

The three main benefits of this increased exposure method include a substantial increase in quality traffic, an influx of potential subscribers and credible backlink building opportunities.
