Hello Guys,

 

I have a website and I wanted to do some SEO work myself for the website. The one way I was hoping to do this via the control panel of the website hoster. But companies like siteground.com offer very limited SEO Resources to work with, and if one wants extended tools and services than one is redirected towards their partner site for paid seo work options.

 

I have submited the site in google, but I wanted to work on link exchanges and submission in diffrent search engines and web directories. Can you suggest any tools or any website host who provides SEO tools to work with. And I can achive my aim which is to drive more traffic to my website.

 

thanks

Guest blog posts are great for linkbacks.. 

 

Work on content on your website and the actual coding behind it to get ranked better for those particular keywords.

 

Social signals like Facebook likes, Tweets and +1's also help rank you well.

I personally like the tools in SEO Power Suite - http://www.seo-powersuite.com/

 

Mainly I use Rank Tracker and have it check the ranking of keywords ive defined once a day, it will also track your competitors site and show you how they rank compared to you which is handy. The other tools in SEO Power Suite are useful, however hard to justify paying for them all to hardly use them. Certainly worth having a go with the trial anyway, its the only package ive personally found to be of any use anyway.

I just use serpbook.com and webmaster tools to track whats working and what isn't..

 

No tools will help you, in terms of building backlinks etc.. that's all blackhat and won't get you anywhere except being penalised

Deal with the basics

 

-Ensure each page has a unique and meaningful title (and meta description)

-Use headings (h1, h2, h3 etc) appropriately.

-If you use images give them proper "alt" tags and a "title" in the code. With things like Google Image search it's a good way to get yourself some easy traffic

-Look into using schema.org microdata on your pages. It's particularly good on blog posts.

-If your site is relevant to a particular market or niche seek other other sites or blogs that deal with that area and contribute there. Often if blogs allow comments you can include your own site URL on the comment form and your comment will link to your site. It's a good way to get referral traffic.

Theres no substitue for Good Content. Remember Googles philosophy when they changed their stance. Social. Everything has a value. I.e if its popular it will be popular.
