Simple SEO – Put niche categories of your blog in your blog header within h1 tags
You must have gotten the gist of what I am trying to say from the title of this post itself. And the title is exactly what I want to say : “Put niche categories of your blog in your blog header within h1 tags”. By niche categories of your blog, I mean the categories of your blog that belong to the theme of your blog. This helps to increase your search engine rankings.
Check out my sidepanel and you will see a list of blog categories. Now among them, at the time of writing this post, I have put the following in my blog header:
SOME USEFUL INFO ON MAKING MONEY ONLINE, BLOGGING TIPS, GETTING TRAFFIC, SEO, PAYMENT PROOFS, USEFUL TOOLS, SCAM LIST, WORLDWIDE FREEBIES, MORE….
(See the top of my blog)
Now, notice that I have not put all of my blog categories in my header. That’s what I meant by putting only the niche categories of your blog in your header. There’s no use putting a blog category like General in that precious spot within h1 tags.
For almost all blogs, niche categories correspond to niche keywords, so what you are basically doing is stuffing your keywords inside h1 tags which really helps in SEO. I have also added some words to my header that are not in my categories. You can also do that to stuff more keywords in your header. But, remember not to put a lot of words in your header because that will make your blog look ugly. Hey guys, I want a feedback, how’s the header of my blog looking? Does it look ugly?
Believe me, this is a plus point for SEO because Search Engines give importance to text that they find at the starting of your page and to texts within h1 tags. So if they find your niche keywords in your header within h1 tags, you will certainly get a boost in search engine rankings.
