Web Design Blogger

PageRank, SEO, internal links, external links, ranking, etc. These are the terms you should be familiar with if you’re trying to monetize your blog. For those who are just into blogging for fun or to kill time, then move on to my other posts as this would probably bore you =P.

I’ve been blogging for almost a year now and I still don’t know about pagerank or Google’s algorithm enough to share with you. I still don’t know how to rank high in searches or how many inbound links do I need in order to get a PageRank of 5. I’ve been doing bits and pieces of SEO but everything I’m doing is just luck. I still don’t know the tried and tested way of doing SEO. I could, however, point you to some of the resources I’ve been using on the net.

First thing’s first, though. You need to understand some basic HTML or CSS (depends whether you’re using Blogger or Wordpress). StylishDesign.Com is a web design blogger wherein you can get some tips and information about SEO, CSS, software, etc. Some SEO techniques involve tweaking your Blogger or Wordpress template so you need to have basic knowledge about those before you start your SEO journey.

After that, try visiting webmaster forums, or Googling if you have more questions or queries. In blogging, you should make Google your best friend.
