But this is one of the effective method that works well and will work.
Doing guest post on authority blogs is not an easy task in order to get approved you need to write content that will stand out from crowd, that mostly gets hell lots of shares otherwise you won’t get approved.
If you’re good at writing contents then you’ll easily get approved.
If you’re not approved by your content then you simply do one thing, hire an awesome content writer.
Do tell him/her to write something different and top-notch content for you.
Pay him/her what they want but tell them to write quality article.
From this trick, you’ll surely going to approve even at high authority blogs.
Have you seen?
Nowadays, many blogs are doing roundup posts.
They most likely write titles like
Well, if you didn’t then I’m here.
First let me explain that what roundup actually means.
Roundup posts is something like doing guest posts on other blogs but not like that one guest posts.
Many bloggers in industry doing roundup posts to get more attractiveness for their blog posts.
They’ll ask questions and you’ll have to answer that question.
You’ll get featured on their blogs along with your blog URL.
Let’s take an example, If I’ve wrote a post on Link Building and on some other blog there is a post that is full of expert advice and they shared their views on Link Building, which one get more potential?
Obviously, the expert one.
Quite simple, by doing roundups they get more potential and you get a backlink.
But your blog need to be good and you need to knowledgeable in order to participate in a roundup otherwise your views/opinions will not get approved.
There are many effective ways to find roundup posts, some of them (that worked for me) I’m sharing below:
Note: I have written my niche which is “blogging” replace “blogging with your own niche.
Got me? nah?
They will bring all the tweets that were posted by those twitter user who is either looking to link to someone, or already have linked.
You can follow them, be their true follower.
And when the time comes, try to convince them, and say if they can link to you.
This is a bit complex, but it works quite well.
If you’re on Facebook you must be having some blogger friends.
As roundups are now trend, they must give roundup post invitation on their profile whenever they held a roundup post on their blogs.
Don’t have friends? Don’t worry!
There is a group on Facebook where people share their roundup post questions and they get answered by many members on group, you can make use of it.
Join that, and you’ll get hell lots of roundup posts, more roundup posts means more backlinks! 🙂
Do keep in mind that write the answer that looks professional and which is to the point. Simple!
Forums are yet effective ways to build backlinks.
They usually known as signature links too.
There are many forums out there where you can answer questions which are asked by their members and in return you’ll get a backlink.
Simply awesome, right?
But keep in mind, don’t become cheesy or spammer, be natural and write useful answers.
This is the way where you can get traffic along with a powerful backlink.
I use two to three forums to answer people questions.
Because I need to be active and natural.
Listening it first time?
If you’re new to SEO thing, I know you’ve listened about broken link building first time.
Let me tell you one thing, it’s most proven way to build backlinks.
And in my opinion this will be the only way which will work in upcoming years.

So, we take advantage of deleted/expired websites.
Simple, we firstly find a blog post related to our niche, with the help of our keyword and a search term.
After that if we see any broken link there we contact that website owner and tell them that your link is broken and I’ve also written on same topic on my website.
You can check that and link to my blog’s post.
Looking complex, but it’s not that much complex and don’t forget the thing that you’re getting authority links to your blog post along with the relationship with influencer.
Moz written a whole guide on Broken Link building which can be found here.

Making SEO Friendly Content is now an issue for beginners, why? because they have to give an awesome content to their visitors and Google bots too.
No doubt, SEO is complicated and one of the biggest problem for beginners is understanding the whole SEO.
According to Copy Blogger “SEO is the most misunderstood topic in Online Marketing.”
But nothing is impossible, If there’s a will; There’s a way!
That’s the reason I’ve decided to write the whole guide on SEO Friendly Content.
It’s a proven guide on SEO Friendly Content, as this is what I’m doing here.
Let me go to the deep below:
Tweet this article to spread love. 🙂
Content is always prefer as King because without content the blog is nothing. we all know this and read content importance daily on various blogs.
But, we know what makes it king? No we don’t know, the simple answer is Quality of content makes it King.
If you’re writing content without proper knowledge and it has lot of grammatical mistakes then this type of content never called as “King”.
You have to write quality content in order to get better SERP.
Quality content can boost your rankings from zero to hero.
N.B: The very famous Algorithm of Google is Panda, which is especially created to remove every site with Low Quality content and bring High Quality contents in SERP.
A content which is not thin, copied, without grammatical mistakes and full of fruitful information is known as “Quality Content”.
Many of newbies think that doing Proper Keyword Research not impact SERP.
But you know what each and every person who knows SEO is doing Keyword Research before writing the content.
We have to take advantage of Keyword Research to get the loads of Organic Traffic.
If you are not aware of this then you don’t know that how to do Proper Keyword Research?
It’s a whole and big topic, So I prefer you to go MOZ’s guide on Keyword Research which contains each and every step, from beginners to advanced.
First learn Proper Keyword Research before doing anything. It’s a necessary thing for SEO Friendly Content.
Title plays a vital role in SEO Friendly Content. If you have attractive title then visitors more likely to click on your Article.
Here I’m going to give you the popular tips for attractive title:
Copying content never works, If you’re copying contents then believe me you can not call yourself a blogger.
Let me give you a simple example, You wrote an awesome content which contains every useful information and someone copied that on his/her site.
What will be your feelings then? I know you’ll like what the hell? my hard work got copied, same feelings will come to the person from where you copy the content.
Respect others hard work in order to get respected.
If above example not convinced you yet then let me tell you that Google is 100 times smarter than you.
They have Algorithms to check which content is copied.
If you’re doing this stop now and change your habit from copying to writing content.
Forget the past, think about the future!
Long gone a days when we say that 500 words content will work.
You all noticed that things are getting change from time to time. The thing which was of 100$ now it’s for 300$, same in the content.
Now you have to write at least 2000+ words to get better rankings in SERP.
It’s also a way to make visitors into subscribers.
When they see that your content is good and full of information they’re most likely to subscribe to your blog.
If they love that much then they’ll also share it! It’s really a good strategy to engage visitors.
In my previous days, I use to write 1000 words content but I was not getting that much traffic.
I researched on Google this problem and got to know I was doing all things awesome but the only reason was content length.
I was like Ohh! What I’ve did, I’ve just wasted my time! I sold the site and started this site.
From the first day, I promised myself that I’ll write atleast 2000 words content and Alhamdullilah I’m doing this!
You believe or not, it’s working and giving me huge much traffic.
Not getting? Let me give you a solid research by SERPIQ about content length, below I’m attaching the graph of Top 10 Search Results for 20,000+ keywords which is analyzed by SERPIQ in 2012 but it is still worth.
This is the best example that Google give importance to Content Length.
If you can write 500 words then why not 2500 words.
Like me, promise yourself and start writing at least 2000 words, I promise you’ll see changes in SERP!
Are you noticing? I’m adding images where necessary, why? It’s a way to stand out and getting readers attention.
It’s also beneficial for getting better SERP, how? Backlinko analyzed one million Google search results and got to know that “Content with at least one image significantly outperformed content without any images.”
Nowadays many people search Images on Google Image Search, If your image will be there you’ll getting some extra traffic too.
Images are too much beneficial in a reader’s eye as they get attracted by the attractive image, it’s human nature!
Don’t forget the great saying:
You have got that using Images is better but which Image Google loves? The simple answer is Google love images which is unique, SEO friendly and without Copyright.
I want you to check Ankit Singla’s article where he discussed each and every way to make your Images Google optimized.
Start using images where appropriate from now.
N.B: Don’t add too much Images in your content, over limiting of anything can become dangerous!
Adding videos in your article is too much beneficial.
Nowadays, people like videos rather than text.
Our new generation is too lazy in reading and they love to watch videos. Why not give them what they love.
They’ll love to share that content and they’ll become your subscriber for sure.
Making video and adding that in your content is beneficial in other sense too like you’re getting a free backlink from high authority Video sharing site, like Youtube, Dailymotion etc. and high authority websites are most likely to rank faster than yours.
Add your post link in the description section from which you’ll get a free backlink and extra traffic.
It’s also a great way to compete with your competitors if they’re not using Videos in their articles.
It’s like I revealed a secret tip for all of you, take benefit from it!
Check Some Other Articles:
A short and exact keyword match URL is always beneficial for you. Always try to write only main keyword in URL and make it short as much as you can.
Let’s take an example of an Authority blog which is backlinko, I never saw a lengthy URL in their contents/pages, this example is great enough to make you realize that the creepy and lengthy URLs never works.
A short and good URL is not only beneficial for SEO but it’s also beneficial for users to remember URL for coming next time to your site’s content which they read before (when need arises).
Example of a well structured URL is like below:
In this post my title is: “The Proven Guide On SEO Friendly Content Writing!” and my URL is: “http://bornblogger.net/seo-friendly-content/”.
Only put a URL of a keyword you want to rank. This is what I’m using and other Pro Bloggers are using nowadays and getting benefit from it.
Internal linking is ranking factor nowadays.
The simple definition of Internal Linking is linking to your old contents on a new content from the same website. They mostly used in Menu/Navigation on a website/blog.
According to MOZ Internal linking is beneficial in three reasons:
It can be also reduce Bounce rate, how? The readers will more likely to visit the link you’ve gave to your new content. In this way a visitor will spend more time on your blog/website and your bounce rate will reduce.
It has one more advantage, When they click the link of your old article which you gave to your new article then your Page Views will increase.
As MOZ already said Internal Linking help to spread link juice, it also can be beneficial to get your content indexed from your new content which is not already indexed as Google Bots crawl the whole article along with the links.
You can see in this article I’m Linking to my old articles.
Take advantage of Internal Linking, you’ll surely get benefits and better SERP.
Nowadays bloggers thinking only Backlinks are important, Backlinks are important I know but linking to other high authority websites is also very important.
Why? It has two major benefits the first is in terms of SEO and the second is you’ll gain trust in users eye about the information you gave is really fruitful.
N.B: Only link to high authority websites like WikiPedia, Quick Sprout etc. if you link to low authority or spammy websites then Google will surely going to consider your Article as Spam.
You can see infect in this article I’m linking to others many times because I love to link to other high authority sites.
One more thing, don’t link others if their contents are not related to your blog’s content.
This is all what I’m using to rank my contents in Search Engines. I think this guide will make your content a SEO Friendly Content.
I’m really doing all these things to make my content SEO Friendly Content except Making Video Tutorials.
But I’m gonna do that for sure after sometimes as it’s so helpful.
