Our Greatest Hits For October 2010

November 4th, 2010 | | Greatest Hits

The page views have spoken! Below we have gathered SEO Boy’s four most visited, and hopefully most valuable, articles from October. Whether you’re a new or long-time subscriber you may have missed these insightful and helpful SEO management tips. Enjoy!

One of our newest SEO bloggers gets the top spot this month! Bethany wrote a great post as a part of a three part series on SEO Enhancement.  Keyword research is a vital step for any SEM strategy, but the task can feel overwhelming if you don’t know where to start or apply outside perspectives to your research.  Follow these three steps to more targeted keywords, and you’ll be on the path to better SEO.

The third part of the SEO Enhancement series discusses link-building methods that tend to have a higher ROI.  Jenny mentions several ideas for attracting more links, including: directory options, press releases, newspapers, articles and blog submissions.   Utilizing these tools for your linking strategy can help your site attract a more targeted audience, while avoiding an all out cold-calling strategy.

Link-building was a popular topic on SEO Boy this month, and rightfully so!  Adding well targeted, relevant links to your website can increase its rank and user-base. For more information on link-building, check out Jessica’s post on why your links matter.  She includes some great tools and outside-the-box ideas for developing a better link-building strategy.

Our last SEO Greatest Hit for October is courtesy of Bryan, with tips on optimizing your site’s press releases.  Search engines crawl press releases on your site, which can have an impact on your page rank.  In order for this to work in your favor, make sure your releases are worth reading, you’re linking to the “good stuff,” and keeping an archive of your old press.
