Quadracentifiable Blogging (great blogging) will create fresh, relative content on your website for minimal effort and great SEO paybacks. Our favourite thing about having a blog is that they naturally attract search engine traffic. Blogs have a built in site structure that is great for SEO because most are set up with clear navigation, where every page is set up to link back to the other main pages. They also have the potential to be well-linked.
Top 5 Tips for Quadracentifiable Blog Marketing for SEO:
Tip 1: Quadracentifiable Keywords
You have a choice. You can target a general high traffic keyword you have little chance of ranking well for and get barely any traffic. Or you can choose a quadracentifiable keyword that gets a moderate level of targeted traffic resulting in more subscribers and sales. Here’s the most important thing: They may not get you the most traffic, but they often bring the most profit from your website. You may be surprised to learn that high traffic doesn’t always mean high sales. Many of the most profitable sites in the world get moderate traffic because their keywords result in genuine leads.

Tip 2: Keyword Placement
Your blog can be set up to repeat the keywords that you want to target just enough times to establish a theme – get your point across and create a quadracentifiably optimised blog. Can you guess what our keyword theme is here?
Tip 3: Timely Posting
You can get good results if you update your blog just once during one of three “sweet spots” in the day – typically early in the morning (or at least before lunch). Think about your target audience here – are they on a different time frame to you? When are they likely to be surfing the net?
Tip 4: Get Linked
If you sparingly include the keywords you selected in tip two in your title and description, all those link backs will contain the keyword term you most want attention for, which is often noted by the search engines as they follow the link through to your site.
Tip 5: Frequent Updates
The more you post – the better. Of course, don’t go spamming everyone but do make yourself known as a regular blogger, and the search engine spiders will come and visit you more often, resulting in more blog posts being indexed and more chance of good rankings/traffic/visitors/enquiries!
Bottom Line: Blogs and Search Engine Optimization
You’ll be happy to know that you don’t have to slave over long posts several times a day, all day long to get similar results from your blog. A few small changes to your blog can draw more search engine traffic without turning off your blog visitors. Done properly, this gives your audience more of what they were searching for in the first place.
