Many freelancers, virtual assistants and entrepreneurs are also article marketers and aren’t aware of it. Did you know if you post to your blog regularly with valuable content, you too are considered an article marketer? So what are some SEO (search engine optimization) tips you can use to help your articles rank better in search engines. Here are a few honest and true tips:
- Watch out for companies that promise to to rank your articles high on the search engines in a short amount of time. Many of these companies use tactics that search engines frown upon.
- Use anchor text in your blog posts and articles wherever possible, instead of links. So use click here; instead of click here: http://virtualworkteam.com/2012/06/10/expand-brand-blog-comment-make/
- Search engines only pick up the first article you post, so if you post to article directories, make sure to change up the content a bit.
