Most people know that in order for your website to rank decently in search engines like Yahoo, it must have a successful SEO strategy in place. Without a quality SEO strategy you can never expect a website to get at all close to ranking on the first page, much less the top spot on search engines. Though search engine optimization is a massive science, I have discovered that there are four crucial components to consider when applying it to your website. By using these four essential aspects of a strong SEO strategy you can guarantee your website will receive a lot of traffic Or you can take help of a SEO Service Company to establish your goals. 

Four Crucial Components to A Profitable SEO Strategy

Step 1 - Keyword Research

Keyword research is the #1 step in implementing a solid SEO strategy. Keywords are basically the words searchers put into search engines. For example "SEO strategy", would be considered a keyword that someone may type into Google. Google's keyword is an amazing place to start. It will show you how many hits a certain keyword gets on a monthly basis.

From here you can establish a keyword that (a) you will be able to rank for and (b) one that will be profitable. For example, trying to rank for the search keyword "SEO", would most likely be awfully hard to do. Try to make long tail keywords atleast 3 to 4 words long; this way it will be much easier to rank highly for them. Make sure the keywords you pick get at least 4000 impressions every month, otherwise it probably won't be worth your effort.

Step 2 - Backlinks

Backlinks are hands down the absolute most imperative component in a successful SEO strategy. A backlink is about come back from one website to another. Search engines such as Yahoo rely on these inbound links to rate the quality of a website and therefore how high it will rank for certain keyword searches. Quality inbound links will do better then quantity.

A quality backlink is a link from a website that has good standing with search engines and is related to the keyword you are attempting to rank for. For instance, if you are trying to rank for the keyword "iTunes clean up", then a backlink from a post about iTunes will do much better then one about volcanoes. To get quality backlinks try using article directories similar to this one, replying on do-follow blogs and getting involved in keyword related forums.

Step 3 - Keyword Placement

Keyword placement is another vital factor in a solid SEO strategy. Keywords help search engines understand what your website is all about. When placing keywords be sure they are related to the keyword you are trying to rank for and that they appear in the site title, site URL, headers and in the text. Make sure they don't appear too often though, or your website may come off looking spammy.

Step 4 - Meta Tags

Meta tags include your site title, description and keywords, or tags. The title and description are what appear in Google. Be sure your description accurately describes what your site is about and includes some use of the keyword you are ranking for. Your keywords, or tags must include the keyword you are trying to rank for, as well as other words that might let search engines know what your website is all about.

Though these steps are basic they are extremely important to a good SEO strategy. Use them as a starting point and eventually you will gain tons of traffic through search engines!
