N.B: I’m not promoting On-Page or not telling that don’t do Off-Page, Off-Page is also very important. I’m just sharing my personal experience.

Tell me that how much a responsive design is important in terms of SEO.
You should have responsive design as it’s too important nowadays.
There are many sites who provide responsive themes, i.e. MyThemeShop, etc.
You can check my site is pretty responsive which is designed by me.
N.B: You can check whether your site is responsive or not on Google Mobile-Friendly Test.
Clean coded design and eye catching/design design matters a lot as it makes the reader to easily navigate into your site and solve their problems.
If you really want to engage thousands of visitors over night then you should use the theme which is attractive.
Don’t forget! A simple, eye catching and attractive lady always attract man rather than a lady with lots of make-up on her face!
If you’re not good designer then you should use my recent designed theme, which can be found here.
Off-Page SEO is the most important part for converting our blog to an authority and getting converting traffic.
It’s used to rank a website in SERPs in a very short period of time, If you do it correctly.
Like you want to rank a keyword “SEO Guide” then you have to dirty your hands with hardcore Off-Page SEO (I’m targeting it 😛 ).
You can’t be expert in Off-Page SEO easily, it takes years of years to become an expert in Off-Page SEO.
Whenever we think about Off-Page SEO we just start thinking of backlinks, am I right? Yes I’m!
It’s one of the popular method of nowadays, from which you rank any of your keywords in Google.

You have to share your articles as much as you can (Don’t spam).

One more thing I want to say here that,
On-Page SEO optimized content give more value to your blog if you follow the On-Page SEO tips only then you can really get lot’s of results.
Brian Dean of Backlinko write only 30 contents in the year.
Well, you might be thinking that how he is getting so much traffic just by writing 30 articles in a year.
Actually, the secret technique behind it, he invest his time on Promotion because he know his content is top-notch and he will get auto promotions as well.
So the thing here is write content that get promotion easily, i.e. Case studies, secret tips etc.
If you’re not getting traffic, I just want to say that “Never Give Up”.
Giving up is not in my dicationary that’s why I’m here.
You never know when your door will open.
Do remember one thing only that is hustling and smart working (as I mentioned above).
Nothing is impossible in this world, we all know, so keep this in mind and remember that:
“Every Expert Was Once A Beginner”.
Do experiments, learn new things, implement the good ones and keep motivated.
These are the things to become expert easily.
Do share this worthy SEO guide with your friends, if you found it useful!

I knew in start, building backlinks will be bit complex for you but after reading this article it will be as easy as never before.
Tell me only one thing that is,
SEO Experts or you can say Link builder have 4 legs, 4 hands or they’re not humans like us?
Your answer must be quite simple.

It’s simple, that they are not super natural powers, they are human beings like you and me.
You can also do Link building as they’re doing.

So, here I’m going to share each and every step for link building that will really help you to build backlinks and rank your websites/blogs in Search engines.
If you’re not new to link building you’ve already heard about link building, I know.
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.
Every day thousands of website get published and get deleted.
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.
You don’t need any guidance on Broken Link Building after reading their guide.
They have mentioned each and every step which can make you expert in broken link building.
Profile links are good for driving traffic and getting fame as well as trust by google.
Free and Easy backlinks though, most of them are no follow and some of them are do follow, both are good as they also help in branding of a new site.
Some sites may take 2-3 weeks or more to index and some may take less time to index.
Those who don’t know much about link building process and have a new site (Avg 1-4 months old).
If you have blog then you can start creating profiles and adding your blog URL there from now.
Useful Tip: After creating profile on profile creation sites, don’t forget to share it on your social media profiles to for extra boost.
Don’t start creating profile and adding links on all profile creation sites at once.
Create only three to five profiles on profiles creation sites in a day or two.
Hope so you’ll get result from profile creation sites.
You can also add links on Facebook and twitter.
Extra note: This is not too much helpful for ranking all of your keywords, but it has some other benefits too like getting backlink, trust in Google eyes, traffic and ranking at some extent.

So when I asked him the question, he replied:
Google prefer that websites/blog which are human friendly in design. By each passing day, Google is trying to offer more user friendly and personalized results. So the best design is what as an end user you would love to consume.
To serve better user experience, Google announces an update called “Mobilegaddon” last year in April 21, 2015. The sole purpose of this update was to help mobile user to explore websites more easily. Now, webmasters treat responsive layout as an important factor while planning a new design.
Here are few of the important factors one should consider while developing a website or blog.
1. Responsive Layout
2. User friendly interface
3. Friendly tone in content
4. Easily navigable
5. Fast loading time
6. Clutter free design
7. Easily readable and lovely fonts
Though there could be number of things to consider, I would suggest going natural. Think yourself as the audience while you are designing your website. If you were the actual visitor what would be your expectation.
Robin Khokhar was doing Job as an Internet Marketer (IM). Later, he decided to fulfill his dreams and he left the Job. He is passionate about Internet Marketing, SEO, Digital Marketing etc.
So when I asked him the question, he answered something unique:
Well according to me design is not a matter for Google on the basis of SEO. What most matters is the user experience of the users of the website. Although we are going to cover the content with ads and some other inappropriate things then Google is not going to love your pages, we might get a penalty from Google.
But I don’t think that SEO friendly design has any concern with the actual SEO.
Ravinder is a passionate blogger and SEO Expert. He writes on many topics on his blog. He is currently living in Chandigarh, India. He is Graduated computer science student and he is too much interested in Robots 😛 . He is doing blogging from 2015 after reading so much articles over the internet. He know about blogging from 2013 actually.
When I asked the Gem about his answer, the reply was:
Design of any web page is the first thing that readers see on website. It’s structure or layout of site that you make for better user experience. We all try to make our blog look attractive but sometimes we forget about optimization of structure that google index as it is.
So if you are only trying to have cool look for blog and ignoring your readers even when Google take user experience into consideration while updating ranking of your website in SERP then you need to think about “what have you been doing ” again.
Now I think, you know the importance of ranking so having SEO friendly website is what you should think about before launching your website.
Lets come to the point 😉
From very first day of blogging I only choose clean and responsive blog design.
So once you got responsive design and fast loading design you will start getting good results in just few days.
Last but not least , Navigation is equally important in web page as it tells search engine or readers about your most common category and pages on your websites.
In blogosphere, there is so much crowd so you have few second to attract readers with best design and content.
So try to make your blog design very responsive and mobile friendly and let google fall for you :p .
Finally, we learned a lot about SEO Friendly Design by experts and got many good answers from them.
In my opinion, the most loved design by people is loved by Google.
The more you concentrate on User experience (UX), the more you’ll get juicy fruits (Traffic) from Google.
Let’s implement all the above suggestions by experts. 🙂
Stay blessed, Stay same and Happy Blogging!
Page load time becoming more and more important ranking factor nowadays.
Sites that loads slowly typically don’t rank high as sites that loads fast.
It’s so beneficial to have fast loading website because it also improve user experience.
If you’re new to SEO then you don’t know about user experience but if you heard this word then you already know that On-Page SEO is all about on better user experience.
First impression is the last impression, we all know that but what is the first impression you should give to your visitors?
The answer is damn simple, “A better load time, a Professional design etc.” the first is a load time, remember that!
A research says that a website that take 1 extra second to load can lose their 7% of conversions – Kissmetrics.
If your site takes time to load then you’re losing lots of traffic.
If your competitor’s blog loads fast than yours then this is what making him a winner.
It’s also one of the Google Ranking Factor, it really affects your Search Engine Rankings.
If your site’s speed is slow then you’ll never get better SERP.
We all know that our generation need everything quickly like, if we go to any shop and if the shopkeeper is busy with other things or other customers then we just shout there to give us now.
Why not speeding up Page Load Time? That’s the reason I brought the whole guide on Speeding Up Page Load Time which contains every aspect of making your site load under 1 second and this guide is tested by me!
N.B: Recently, I was researching on making my site speed under 1 second and found these ways that I’m gonna mention below.

Here I’ll be explaining ways to get your Page load time under 1 second for sure.

Note: It’s a very tough job to make your website loads under 1 second, you have to make your hands dirty for this task. You have to bear your sleep-less nights for only making your page load time under 1 second. As I have experienced this, I’m now passionate about making any site load under 1 second. If you don’t want to make your hands dirty and want to enjoy a better load time of your website then contact me by using this link. Let me send you a resonable quote for your site. Don’t worry it won’t bite you!
I know you or I can’t fix my website’s load time issues by just using Inspect Element or Source Code.
Tools are necessary for checking page loading time and issues.
That’s the reason I brought some tools that always recommended by Professionals and I’m personally using them for my sites and client sites too.
Web Hosting plays a vital role in making your page’s load time fast.
Believe me or not, a better web hosting can alone make your website loads under 1 second.
Web Hosting is also known as “Backbone of a website”.
The problem is now what are the best web hosting you should choose?
I recommended you to use hosting that are good in support, good in loading and have their own CDN.
I recently asked one of famous SEO expert of Pakistan known as “Waqas Ahmed” that, Which CDN do you use? He said, a better web hosting can do all the things. We don’t need to care about CDN if we have a good hosting because a better hosting itself contains CDN.
Then I asked which hosting is best in your opinion? He told me about these two:
However, if you don’t have good budget for your site, you can also use Hostgator for web hosting, their plans are incredibly awesome and worth buying.
If you need to get a web hosting only in 0.1$ then use my referral link below:
Use one of the best web hosting if you want to speed up your website/page load time. Believe me, you’ll see changes just after changing the web hosting.
For me, CDN is just awesome and the best way for improving Page Load Time. CDN do tasks simpler and faster.
CDN basically is the thing that loads your site according to the Visitor’s Location means if someone request to visit your site from any country the person who is requested to see your site will download the server files from the nearest location of his place.
I love to use CDN in my own sites and client sites too. You should use it to make your site load under 1 second at any country.
The best free CDN is CloudFlare using CloudFlare on so many sites till now, and getting best results. However, there is paid version too of this CDN, if you have great traffic you should go with paid version.
You must be thinking what? Keeping the WordPress updated will help you in loading your site faster. I know!
But you know what? Content Management System A.K.A CMS play a vital role in making the page load time faster.
It’s not just updating the WordPress, it’s also about to install updates of your themes and plugins.
Keeping yourself up-to-date not only helps you to improve page load but it also helps you to get more secure.
Forget the old saying “old is gold“, the things are changing from time to time.
There are many themes with the support of customizing it from top to bottom, it’s really good for beginner who don’t know how to do that customization using style sheet file but this type of theme not called as Fast Loading Theme as these themes are full of codes.
In order to make your blog loads fast you have to use theme that is fast loading and smoothly designed.
I recommended you to use MyThemeShop themes.
They know how to make your blog load fast along with the awesome designs they have.
If you want to make your blog more and more fast, I recommended you to use MTS Schema Theme.
This is the theme I’m using on my many projects and using it on many of Client Sites too.
This theme will surely make your blog blazing fast.
Removing old files means old unused plugins and themes are most important.
Let’s take an example, In your home, you have 2 Fridges and the 1 is unused. You’ll surely gonna remove it from your house, why you add the thing which is just taking a lot of space in your home and you’re not using it.
Same with the blogs whenever we change the theme, WordPress not delete the old one, you have to delete it manually. If you’re having even one unused theme then remove it now, the theme is just taking space nothing else.
Same with the plugins, we mostly deactivate the plugins but not delete it properly.
It’s still stored on WordPress. Don’t forget to delete them.
Also don’t forget to delete plugins that you’re not using like WPCurve did and got really impressive improve in page load time.
If you’re also having any unwanted plugins and themes then remove them now. You’ll surely get good results as this is proven way to improve page load time.
Images are the problems for bloggers, as they have to add the proper and attractive image for getting well-crafted article.
But you never know that images can be dangerous if you don’t optimize/compress them properly.
I recommend you to use Pic Resize before uploading any image on your site compress them by editing them using it.
The recommended size of an Image is 100Kb.
If you don’t want to do it manually let the best plugin do it for you which is known as “WP Smushit“.
Currently I’m using it’s paid version in this site and it’s just awesome.
This plugin will compress your images without loosing the quality.
This is one of the trusted plugins by many of experts.

But they are not right here, they just don’t know that they’re loosing their visitors for just some bucks.
Nowadays, if the user will not get better UX they’ll leave the site, not talking about UX here actually but you can also take it as UX because the better UX means the better Page load time.
The more you’ll add ADS, the more you’ll loose your visitors. Try to avoid this cheap techniques for just pennies, think about the future!
Whenever you edit the post, WordPress save that post without telling you even.
This can be a problem for you as they taking unwanted space and useless for you.
Why not remove them, useless things are always useless.
This is a bigger task you can’t do it manually, I was searching for this on “Google” and found that there is a plugin to do this task called “Better Delete Revisions“.
As I’m so careful about security and clean coded plugins I search for review on it and got WP Beginner’s review on it and found it useful.
Using it on my all projects and it’s doing what it is made for! Thumbs up for developers. (Y)

This plugin is just made for this purpose but now I’m using WP Rocket then WP Rocket have this built in feature! 🙂
I must say that WP Rocket is one of the best plugins as I’m using that it makes my life so much easier alone!
Nevertheless, if you still want to do this task using .htacess then you should consider this post by Gift of Speed.
