I'm pretty sure you're only aiming for visits from other Steemians.

Well, then I have some great news for you: the online web is a lot larger than SteemIt alone.
Outside this platform, there are millions of other people who might be interested in your SteemIt posts.

So why whould you limit yourself? Be proud of your SteemIt efforts and aim higher!

Search Engines

The way SteemIt is built makes sure than new SteemIt posts are often being indexed in the search engines faster than any other site.


This is benficial for you. After all, the more 'outsiders' that read your posts, the more visitors you'll get.


And who knows... these visitors might create their own SteemIt accounts to join in on the fun. And the more Steemians, the higher the demand of Steem - which will make the price of Steem go up again.

SEO Factors

An SEO-Friendly Permalink

As you've probably noticed, the permalink of your SteemIt post is generated based on your title.
Now, what you hould know about an SEO-friendly permalinnk is that it is short, conatins the main keyword and it doesn't contain so called 'stop words' - those are the short words like the', 'and' and so on.

You can compare the difference below:

An SEO-friendly permalink: https://steemit.com/steemit/@simplymike/steemit-seo-tips

Since your permalink is automatically generated from your title, you might think you have no control over the final permalink of your post.
But that's where you are wrong...

More Tips On How To Optimise Your Steemit Blogs For Ranking In The Search Engines.

There are more factors that will help your SteemIt article to get ranked in the search engines quickly.

Some things to consider are:

  • a descriptive meta description containing your keyword (your meta description is what is shown in the search engine results beneath your title. Since there is no way to specify a separate meta description on SteemIt, your very firt paragraph will be automatically used to show in the searc engine results.
    This means you need to pay attention to that first paragraph and make it as descriptive a possible.

  • The use of keywords. Make sure you repeat your main keyword a couple of times, and use related keywords throughout your text.

  • Using links to both outbound articles as inernal links to your own articles.

  • Using H title tags and keyword-rich alt-texts for your images.

  • And last but not least: to speed up the process of getting your pages indexed in the search engines even more, it is important that you get the word out about them.

I am Seo-writer and do it for living. I really like your blog.

I didn't want to give too much info at once, definitely because almost everything is covered in the original.post I referred to at the bottom.

My main goal was actually to show people how they could create an SEO-friendly permalink.

There are so.many more factors when it comes to SEO optimization. I should do aseparate post on the use of keywords at one point...

This got lost in my sea of open tabs, but I glad I found it. Thanks for the awesome information @simplymike :) I'm beginning to think you had a way better teacher than me at our technical school :)

·

Lol, don't forget I spent 15 years of my life as an internet marketer. This sort of info is like the basis of everything if you want to get your website seen by visitors.
It'i kept it pretty basic in this post - I didn't have a lot of time to write the post, but thdre's even a lot mord to it than mentioned.

And for the record: there was no school involved when I got into marketing. I taught myself everything I know along the way, lol

Excellent advice and a good reminder to 'old hand' bloggers @simplymike most definitely makes a difference to posts, one tip about editing the header is a great one to remember, did not know that!
