seo strategies for organic traffic

Every blogger dreams of to see his creation and thoughts on the top of search engine pages and also look for the high traffic hitting the blog which in-turn brings you profitable outcome from Ad programs. Let me tell you one thing that bringing recognition to blog is not so easy but with constant efforts, one can achieve high popularity and traffic using proper SEO techniques. I will like to share few of the tips which even I have used to bring my Blog up to this level. I would suggest using these SEO Strategies to bring huge organic traffic on your blog.

1. Proper Keyword Research

Being a blogger, you surely might be aware of the significance of proper and enriched keywords and also might also know how much effort you need to find the appropriate and selling keywords. I would suggest using Google Adwords keyword planner for Keyword research.

This tool is quite competent and would help you by suggesting significant keywords for your blog. The tool asks you to input the related keyword to your website and it then delivers the laundry list full of recommended keywords having the status of competition, estimate search engine hits and local monthly search. Blog owner can save the relevant keywords in the excel for further use.

2. Keyword Distribution

Now as you have got the list of keyword, the important task is to distribute them wisely to get maximum benefit out of using them in your website or blog. There are mainly three places where you need to put these keywords, Title, Description of your blog or website and in the Meta Tag section.

<title></title> tags.

<meta name=”description” content=”your description here”/>

<meta name=”keyword” content=”your keyword here”/>

NO, NO, your task is not finished yet; you have to do the optimization of each and every page on your blog or website. For each page, you need to select the relevant keyword and then have to optimize that page with the selected keyword.

3. Tags for Crawlers

In SEO strategies, there are many Meta tags which you can use to instruct the search engine crawlers. You can make use of these Meta Tags in the following manner:

<meta name=”Robots” Content=”Index, follow”/>
<meta name=”Googlebot” Content=”Index, follow”/>

4. XML Sitemap

Creating XML Sitemap is quite crucial and you can find lots many tools to create XML sitemap, after creating it you need to place it on your site directory as: websitename.com/sitemap.xml. Then you also have to submit the sitemap to the Google webmaster tools.

5. Alt tags

You might have seen that many times due to slow connection, images loading get fails and instead of that, you see a text coming in place of it. This text is nothing but the Alt Tags which are also being crawled and indexed by the search engine and hence it is important to tag all the images placed on your blog and website in order to ensure better page rank and traffic through on page optimization.

6. Permalink Structure

/product_category.aspx?caid=102

V/S

/social-media-tips

You, yourself decide which one is easy to remember and convenient to use and moreover looks meaningful & relevant. There is no doubt that you will go with the second one, so make sure to make the permanent links meaningful and relevant to the readers. Off-page optimization is as important as the on-page optimization and hence it should be done wisely to achieve better traffic.

Merkaba Meditation | Learn How to Meditate

July 6, 2016 • Student Reporter

merkaba meditation energyIn this article I will share with you everything that you need to know to start meditating. I will guide you step by step through the meditation process, and I can assure you that after you finish reading this post you will know how to meditate.

Let’s begin!

You will have to identify some essential things about you and your daily habits. You have to find yourself a place where you can sit undisturbed so you can perform your Merkaba meditation daily. Remember, you will have to meditate day after day. To obtain the full benefits from meditation, it is important to include the meditation practice in your daily routine, as a habit. Include meditation in your daily program before you drink your coffee or you brush your teeth. Making out of meditation a daily habit will influence you in every aspect. It is also good to meditate at the same hour daily, and not one day at 7 am and the next day at 7 pm. If this is clear for you, now search for a relaxing and quiet place. You need to feel completely relaxed, it doesn’t matter so much the position that you take. You can sit in the lotus position, or simply in a chair, with your back straight and your hands on your knees. It`s important to feel relaxed and conscious.

It’s good to meditate early in the morning. Only 10 minutes of meditation are enough, but you need to know when these 10 minutes of meditation will end, you can use a timer or something like this, but the sound of the timer has to be as quite as possible because it doesn’t have to scare you. I recommend using a simple beep sound.

You are in a quiet and relaxing place, the position is set, you’re feeling comfortable, the timer is prepared, now start closing your eyes, slowly. Take some deep breaths, inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth.

Observe yourself from a different point of view; visualize yourself from an outside source. Try to feel what’s happening with your body, feel how your skin touches your clothes, feel the palms of your hands on your knees. Observe yourself. Analyze your whole body; start observing all of the annoying and relaxing things around you, just acknowledge them without trying to intervene in any way. Even if you observe the things which are bringing you discomfort, don’t change them. It’s enough to be aware of your feelings.  After 20-30 seconds of body awareness, start directing your attention to your mind, to your thoughts. Do the same as with your body, just observe all of your thoughts, positive or negative, and don’t eliminate any of them. After you pass these steps, realize the fact that you are now meditating. Now your mind is in a state of peace, stop analyzing things, enjoy the moments of clarity, enjoy these moments of being there. If you’re not in that peaceful state, think at the fact that you have some minutes for you, exclusively for you. In these 10 minutes nobody needs your help and you don’t need the help of anybody. Think at the fact that you don`t have any worries and these minutes are only for relaxation; this will calm you. And if in these moments, you feel that your mind is trying to return to reality, focus your attention on breathing, but don`t change anything, just observe.

Just be there with all of your being and simply enjoy these peaceful moments. Doing all of these things you can really say that you have learned how to meditate. It doesn’t matter what happens now, maybe you feel completely relaxed, maybe some thoughts are walking through your mind; let them be there; enjoy these seconds.

The way you leave the meditation state is very important. Before you open your eyes, think about all of the things that you want to do next. For example, if you need to prepare the coffee, think about your way to the workplace and slowly open your eyes. In this manner, you will maintain these meditation feelings, and you will continue the day by making the coffee or another morning habit, still having those good feelings. By ending your merkaba meditation process in this manner, your entire day will change; you will be followed by positive and good thoughts all day long if you’re lucky. It’s beneficial to remember some moments of your meditation during the day, for example, the moments in which you felt relaxed and fulfilled. This will cheer you up.

With all of these things being said, you now have all of the important information about how to meditate correctly; the rest is up to you!
