See Previous Interviews In The How To Build Your Blog Interview Series:
Okay! Let’s proceed to the interview fully.
1. Hi Nisha, welcome to FTB we are so pleased to have you here, please for the sake of my readers, I’ll like you to tell about yourself.
First of all, I want to extend my thanks from the core of my heart to bring me here. This, of course, is my first interview at your blog and I hope to deliver the best of experience to readers.
I am Nisha, a full time blogger and SEO expert too. SeoTechyWorld.com is my first and personal blog. Here, I love to share my tips and experiences with my readers.
You will come to know me more when you read through the interview coverage.
2. What prompted you to venture into blogging, and how long have you been blogging?
I started my career as a full-time SEO professional who loved doing research and implementing the changing faces of SEO all the time. I did know some blogging platforms and blog submission sites which helped me greatly to acquire quality bakclinks. Some of them were wordpress, blogger, weebly, and Tumblr. The idea of blogging struck me when I used to visit few blogs for guest posting. I kind of wanted to have my own blog then and went ahead and booked my domain SeoTechyWorld in April 2013. I took some time to get attuned with the process and hence it all did not prosper right away. Only when I dived into it seriously in October 2013, the results picked up a path to cherish for. So, you can say that I am into professional blogging for last 1 year.
3. It’s really nice to hear that the result picked up a path to cherish for. How many blogs do you have as at now?
Currently, I am concentrating only on one and that is my first blog SeoTechyWorld.
Oh yes, I do have plan for some of my upcoming projects. One of them is already on the go and that is http://how-to-make.in. There are some other projects in the immediate pipeline.
4. You’ve decided to concentrate on SeoTechWorld, can you tell us what you do over there?
My main blog is SEOTechyWorld that is devoted to “World of Internet and Technology”. You can always find tips and tricks on anything related to Internet and Technology.
The interview questions covered below are based on SEO in order to help young bloggers boost their blogs’ visibility on search engines. Shall we proceed?
I don’t remember saying ‘no’ to someone till date.
SEO is categorized into two main parts, (On-Page and Off-Page), so I’ll start from Onpage SEO because, there’s an adage that says charity begins at home.
5. How can you define On-page SEO?
If you look closely at On Page SEO, it basically is the science of managing your content judiciously to grant that friendly thing to your website. Yes, people call it optimization in a more common term these days. This is the basic way to manage your texts, tags, internal links, images, URL structure, headers, other related aspects, etc.
6. What is the first move to On-Page SEO?
I would call it the very first move to be the basic thing that you must do with On-Page SEO. Yes, you should welcome that optimization by choosing suitable keywords and using them prudently on the content pages. Making it anything search-friendly by uploading to your website comes under the act of On-Page SEO.
7. What are the factors to consider while practising On-Page SEO?
Below mentioned are the essential yet very vital On-page optimization components that play a major role in enhancing any website and its presence over the web.
- Proper Post Title (H1 tags): You cannot really play with the quality here.
- ALT Tags: You must employ proper ALT tags with targeted keywords.
- URL structure: You cannot ignore this one of the most important parts in SEO which must contain your main keyword in it.
- Meta Description Tag: This one always helps.
- Keyword Density: The desired density without looking artificial.
- XML sitemap: You cannot ignore this.
- Proper Content: Uniqueness and originality have to be deeply respected.
- Internal Linking Strategy: Link within the website and do so for the related articles only.
- Proper HTML and CSS validation: Monitoring this helps.
- Title Tags: Makes the content search-friendly
8. Thanks for giving a list of essential factors that can help us in our On-Page SEO. What is the result of proper On-Page SEO?
The result is apparently dependent on On-Page optimization tactics as it is the essential part when you crave for quality SEO. I would say if you have taken every bit of On-page SEO and you have attained perfection to as close as 70-75%, you then actually have belled the cat. You can then march ahead with Off-page SEO task.
9. What is the result of improper On-Page SEO?
The answer lies in the question itself. You added that prefix “improper” to On-page SEO, right? So, the outcome would surely be improper only such as sudden decrease of your search engine ranking, losing traffic and hence the online presence is affected too.
10. What are the best techniques you use for your On-page SEO?
I give more emphasis on the right keyword research. I make sure the main keyword finds a way in the first paragraph of the post and I play with some alternate yet related keywords within the content. I also never forget to use proper alt tag for the employed images.
Thank’s Nisha, for saying your views on On-Page SEO. Let’s Move Over To Off-Page SEO.
11. How can you define Off-page SEO?
I would define off page SEO well according to its name. You go off the page and whatever optimization you do, it comes under Off-page SEO. Optimization of your website contents has nothing to do here.
12. What is the first move to Off-Page SEO?
The one I was prompted with to start my own blog. Yes, they are guest post submissions and engaging yourself with the commenting on several blogs, article submissions, etc. But yes, they should be related to your niche.
13. What are the factors to consider while practising Off-Page SEO?
Off-page SEO should not be neglected at any point of time as it comprises of a healthy 30% share of the entire SEO process. The two basic factors that shake the stance of Off-page SEO are: Quality link building and social media presence. You need to have quality on both these aspects to improve your page ranking as well as the presence over the web.
Improving social media presence can be achieved when you make your website popular amid different platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Google+, etc. The more active your website is in these platforms, better is your brand value. The search engine algorithm will also nod its head in your favor. Improving the social bookmarking through directory submissions (DOMZ.org) and forum posting simply adds ice on the cake.
Forum posting is a great way to encourage Off-page SEO. When you push yourself for more participation in different forums through questions and answers, you actually can anticipate a quality link from the forum to your website. As a result, your page ranking boosts itself up.
14. Thanks for sharing a detailed to consider while practicing Off-Page SEO. What is the result of proper Off-Page SEO?
This is a better way to improve your page rank without breaking a sweat. You absolutely have nothing to do with content management of your site here. You build quality links to your website through above discussed fundamentals, and then Google gives you a cunning yet impressive smile.
15. What is the result of improper Off-Page SEO?
Oh! Not again. These things would make Google angry for palpable reasons. Why do you want to design that shortcut to success when it is never there?
16. What are the best techniques you use for your Off-page seo?
I engage myself with commenting on various blogs and guest postings as much as possible. Yes, I also devote some time towards participation in forums and submission of articles in free hours.
17. On-Page VS Off-Page SEO, which do you think should be considered first?
How can you think of having one side of a coin and yet expect it to sell it hard!
18. Can one do without the other? ie: practicing On-Page SEO or Off-Page SEO alone.
You can go little extravagant with Off-page but On-page! No, do not think of that. It is the building block and comes ahead of anything else.
19. Please tell us the easiest method you manage your SEO?
Target right low competitive keywords and unique ones, and always create quality contents. These would do well for your On-page SEO.
Practice commenting on the blogs, do some guest post submissions and you are ready with Off-page SEO.
Bonus Tip: Okay, it seems you are serious to see yourself grow as a successful blogger. You can create your own blogging community through effective commenting on blogs. And do not just do that for backlinking. You focus on relevance, quality, and focused comment that brings sense. That way backlinking comes for free and you build your rapport in the process. Good luck with your endeavors.
20. It’s nice having you on my blog.
Thank you. I feel nicer.
