    HI Nirmala,

    This is an interesting post for newbies who are desperate to know all this kind of stuff. I really like the way you are doing great work to build relations over internet by doing guest posting. :-)

    I didn’t agree with your 5th point in which you have mentioned that we need to optimize our blog for search engines. I don’t agree with this statement just because of a fact that as we write our content according to search engine, we couldn’t deliver good stuff for our audience.

    At times title, description also get keyword stuffed. Which is bad for us. New bloggers especially do this. If we can write best content for our audience it will be tremendous for our website.

    What you say about it.?

    i like to comment about optimizing blogs in search engines. i am quite confused on the rules of Google in terms of SEO. the last time i followed an SEO technique in Google (there must be a keyword in first and last 100 words of the article).. my ranking on that keyword went down from page 4 to page 13

    now i’m confused on what rules should i follow. it seems Google keeps changing it. perhaps in the future they will only require one keyword per post

    do you have any idea nirmala?

      Yes, as you told, Google keeps changing the rules.

      It is good to have the Keyword in the first and last paragraph of a blog post, but I don’t know why your SERP got down, I guess it was due to some other reason.

      Did you checked the keyword density for that post? Did you use any long tail keyword in it?

      Hope your competitors might optimized better than you for that particular keyword.

      Thanks for asking a good question Marilyn, keep reading the SEO stuffs for better understanding.
