Effective SEO Can Come Cheap

Search engine optimization or SEO is the hottest way to drive targeted traffic to your website. Maximizing the benefits of a well optimized website will yield lots of earnings and traffic for the business. However, increasing your site’s rankings can cost you thousands of dollars if you are not skilled in this area.

There are however a few steps you can follow that cost you nothing except a little time.

1. Link exchanges

One cheap SEO method that can get you good results is through link exchanges or linking to and from other web sites. Depending on the websites that you would like to exchange links with, this could even cost you nothing at all. Contact the author or owner of the web site you want to have a link exchange with. You will be surprised with the eventual spiking up of your page ranking using this means of getting your website optimized.

2. Write or acquire keyword-rich articles

Writing truly informative and keyword-rich articles is one surefire way to make your Internet business more visible than ever. It’s either you write your own articles or you get them from article directories that allow you to post these articles on your website as long as you keep the resource box or the author’s byline in tact. Just don’t stuff your articles with keywords that even idiots would get bore of reading them. The readability and freshness of your articles will still be the basis of whether your writers will keep on coming back to your website or not.

3. Catchy Domain Name

What better will make your target visitors remember your website but with a very easy-to-recall domain name. Something sweet and short will prove to be very invaluable. Registering your domain name is not for free. But creativity is.

4. Organize your site navigation

Providing easy steps in navigating your site is one way to make your visitors become at ease with your site. This, in turn, will improve the flow of traffic to your website.

Low cost SEO is always evolving like any other approach in information technology. There are many methods that can very well land you on the top ten rankings of Google or on any other search engines. Some may cost a lot but there are methods that can give you the same results at a low price or you can even do on your own such as those mentioned above.

    That’s a good point about excessive linking. Like anything else, taking something to excess can get you into trouble.

    You may want to mention that excessive reciprocal linking is just asking to get yourself sandboxed. A “catchy domain” doesn’t have anything to do with the algorithmic process of SEO, though it is nice to have.
