Amazing SEO Basics for Philippines Websites - Filipino Bloggers and Website owners

Just want to make a quick guide to all Filipino bloggers and website owners who wants to learn SEO and the basics of SEO.

This post covers the following:

  • Meaning of SEO?
  • Why we need to do SEO?
  • How to Implement SEO?

What is word SEO Means?

The word SEO means Search Engine Optimization:

  • Search
  • Engine
  • Optimization.


By the word “Search” this refers to the process when we are searching for something in Google.com like “Latest Model of…“, “How to Setup….“,
What is the meaning of…“, “How to install..

By the word “Engine” this refers to a machine. Sites like Google.com, Yahoo, Bing, etc. are called Search Engines. A machine has an algorithm, and the algorithm has a pattern or a formula to process and find the most related websites with the information that your looking for.

In order for a machine to  keep up with the technology it needs to update and yes, Google updates once every few months and so do their patterns and formulas. This is the reason why SEO technique always changes and innovate.

By the word “Optimization” this means an “the action of making the best or most effective use of a situation or resource.” This also means SEO is an ongoing development process.

SEO is not a one time process, like you’ll do SEO now and then you’re done. Well, you’re wrong, because SEO needs to be done daily, weekly or monthly whenever you have the time, of course it’s much better if you can do this every often.

Why we need to do SEO?

why we need to do seo basic philippines

Let’s say you made a website for your business and you’re selling a product or a service.

But, you’re not doing SEO, chances are you might still get a little bit sales from loyal customers, patrons, and friends but not the people who browse and search on the internet.

Next, You made a blog about your cooking, posting and showing your cooking skills, recipes, and unique cooking styles.

But, you ignore SEO, chances are you might still get a little visitors from your friends and family but not the people who browse and search on the internet.

Why is that?

Because without SEO your website has very small chance to appear in the Google search results. Not unless you have thousands of followers in social media.

Doing SEO means you’ll be getting a lot of potential visitors/customers from the search engines and it can be thousands of people everyday depending on your SEO efforts.

How to do SEO?

how to seo basics philippines

Actually there are many various ways of doing SEO. Below are the most important SEO actions that you must do. But I will not elaborate them because that is way to long.

  1. Submit Your Website to Google Search Console. Then add each of posts links in the “Search Bar: Inspect any URL.”
  2. Check Your Page Speed Insights. They will give you guides on how to make your website load faster.
  3. Finding the right Keyword. These are the group of words that people use to type in Google Search.
  4. Applying the Keyword to your posts: Title, Subtitle, Content, Image Name, Image Alt Text.
  5. Internal Links. This is the process of inserting your older blog posts to your content.
    • For example: Inserting this word in your posts.
      • You might want to read my related posts here. https://mrdangem.com-how-to-seo-blogspot (sample only)
  6. Large Content. Your posts should have at least 500 to 1000 words its way more attractive compare to other blog posts with very few words.
  7. Link Building or Backlinks. This is the process of leaving your website URL/Link to other websites.
    • It could be by posting a comment on some blogs and add your website URL/Link.
    • Submitting your website to “Website Directory”.
    • Adding your website posts to “Social Bookmarks Sites” like reddit, fliboard, etc.
    • Sharing your posts to “Social Media” like facebook, Instagram etc.
    • Leaving your link on your Youtube description.

Summary

Basically, SEO is the process of making our Blogs and Business sites more visible in Search Engines. With SEO you are likely to get more visitors, more traffic, and more profit. But, without SEO you can consider your website as a small fish in a very deep and vast sea without somebody noticing it. Harsh isn’t it? Yes. Because no matter how good your content and how valuable it is if you’re not applying SEO on it, only few people will see it or worst no one will.

Your Turn!

Well I Just want to ask some few questions:

Are you going to start SEO on daily basis?

Or maybe you want to optimize site Site Speed First?

Amazing SEO Basics for Philippines Websites Pinterest

Either way, let me know by leaving a comment below right now.

If you’ve read my previous post on Amazing SEO basics for Philippines Websites Then let’s proceed on How to SEO Blogger or Blogspot. This is very easy and fun, it’s the very basic of SEO that you need to familiarize and do on a daily basis.

This might sound hard and complex but the truth is its very easy to understand. Just remember that SEO Blogger is comparable to watering your garden, without it your blog will not grow.

1. Choosing your Niche

choosing niche How to SEO Blogspot

It should be your passion something you really like. Because I believed that without passion your blog is eventually bound to end. Especially to your niche, If you really do like your niche, you’ll never get bored and encounter problems in the future.

You will also find happiness whenever someone reacts and interact with your post. But, the main reason why I want you to be passionate about it is that if you like what your doing you can always come up with new ideas in making new posts and apply blogger SEO on it.

  • Niche – is a specific topic it could be a certain game, product, genre, books, hobby, sports, TV shows, etc.
  • Example: if your niche is a game then you post in your blog all about games.

2. Find your Keywords

finding keywords How to SEO Blogspot in Philippines

Whenever you’re making a post, at least add Keywords in your Title and Content.

If you don’t have ideas on what keyword to use. I have one simple way to get SEO Blogger keywords. By Using “Google.com” auto-suggestion.

Below I’m planning to make a post about freelance. After typing “freelance” a list of suggestions will automatically appear below you can get keywords from it. Those are the keywords used by many people while searching, and it will likely be used again by many people who sees it.

Now use it in your Blogpost Title and Content Like the image below.

Keyword is Highlighted.

3. Apply SEO on your Images

seo in your images SEO Blogspot in Philippines

Just use an image that is related to your target keyword, then rename it and add your keywords on it. “Freelance In Philippines

rename image seo

Then you can also add a caption if you like, of course, use your keywords as much as possible. But don’t overdo it.

add image caption seo

Since Blogger is outdated compared to WordPress you must do this manually. This is called Image Alt Attribute and you can do this by following my instruction below. After inserting the Image, go to HTML Editor and add this code:  alt=”your keyword” observe the image below where I inserted the code.

alt tag image seo
I use notepad sometimes because the blogger “HTML editor” is an eyesore to me.

4. Link Building

link building SEO Blogspot in Philippines

Many will not get this easily but I hope with my presentation you can understand this somehow.

back link seo

Backlink happens when BLOGGER1 added a link of YOUR-SITE in his/her website post.

By doing this Backlinks, Google will see your Website as a good site because somebody is linking to you. Google now will think that your site deserves to rank up a little bit.

backlink seo 2

Now, what happens if BLOGGER1, BLOGGER2, BLOGGER3, and so on, Added your link on their website? What will happen? Of course, you will keep getting higher in ranking.

Basically, It’s similar to celebrities, the many the fans they have a higher ranking or more popular they’ll get.

Note: Latest SEO Blogger studies show that Google only counts high-quality site backlinks. High-quality sites are sites that have been online for more than a year and its already a well-established site, meaning it also has a ton of backlinks as well.

backlink seo 3

The Question is How or Where can we find High-Quality Websites? And If ever we find one will they add our Websites links that easy?

Luckily, the answer already there and we are using them already, They are social media. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Digg, Reddit, Stumbleupon, Googleplus, and many more!

5. Internal and External Links

Internal and external links seo blogpsot philippines

An internal link is the links in your Post redirecting to your other or previous post. It will boost your SEO a little, and will also help your other post to get more views and readers.

External Links are when you’re adding a link of someone’s site to your post. Just like what I did above. Google sees it as positive because not only we are dedicated in our post, we are also adding links to help our readers understand and help them find what they’re really looking for.

6. Submitting your Posts to Google

If you already have a post now you can start submitting it to Google Search Console. Just copy your blog post link and then submit to Google Search Console if the result is “URL is not on Google” then click the “Request Indexing”.

Very Easy Right?

I think the only one that might trouble you is the link building, anyway if your posts are useful and helpful rest assured that some of your readers will share to their social media. Then the rest is fine you just add a keyword then submit to Google.
