Use a unique and easy to search title. Your titles should not be “How to lose weight” because this article has probably been published thousands of times, instead use a title like, “How to reach your target weight.”
Don’t use too many keywords. Google and other major search engines will punish articles or websites who have too many Keywords related to the given topic. The Ideal percentage of keywords to use in a given topic is between 2% to 5% of keywords in a given article. For example, If you have an article that says, How to get rid of fleas, the words rid and fleas should be used no more than 5% in the entire article.
Get an SEO Tool. Google and other sites have SEO tools available that will assist you in keyword density and title searching. A tool can let you know how often your article is searched and what the demand is. You don’t need a tool, but it definitely helps to save time.
Search your title first. If you plug your title into a search engine, you can not only find out what the demand for that given title is, but you can also find out what keywords are being used the most for that title.
Use back links directing traffic to your articles. You can post links to your articles on social networking sites and other websites to bring traffic to your articles and improve your websites ranking. Google and other search engines will reward sites that are frequently being used as a “source” for other sites. The more back links you have, the better your ranking will be.
