There are so many SEO practices on the web today which you can use to get your post on Google/Bing first page. Most often SEO bloggers seem to promote backlinking but is backlinking all we need? – No
This post will show you how to quickly rank and index all your new blog posts with your old blog posts.
Good News: I have never paid for any backlink neither have I submitted my blog to any authoritative site. Yes, backlinks can help boost your page rank but backlink is not all you need.
New and Old Post InterLinking.
Interlinking though not fully recognized by SEO bloggers is one of the best ways to pass SEO juice to your new blog posts. Proper practice of interlinking will enable you to get all your new post index in no time.
How Search Engines works.
Search engines such as Google crawl your site continuously, every time they visit (search bots and crawlers) they expect to see something new for indexing. How then do they find your new blog post?
Through your blog Sitemap
The essence for the submitting of sitemap is to inform search engines at their webmaster’s page that this blog has published a new post. In no time, the blog post will get crawled by search crawlers and index starts afterward,
At this point, the page rank of this post depends on what SEO practices you implement before and immediately after publishing. What are these practices?.
Sharing this post to various social networks will help boost the page rank of this newly published post. How? When you share the new post to social networks,
Search crawlers from these social media networks get to crawl your site and if the post is worth a good rank, search engines will recognize it. But then Social shares is just a fraction of it. What really matters?
I have not seen a better way to instantly index your new blog post. With a good interlinking practice, a good blog post can get featured on the first page few minutes after being published. But how does it work?.
Search crawlers work in a link structure. In the sense, links act as roads for search crawlers. This is why we have Do Follow and No follows which simply means, you can crawl this link but you can not crawl this link.
Now, if your new post, is getting do follow links from your old blog posts related to the new posts with keywords, then your post gets crawled and much value is attached to it.
How do I practice interlinking?
Interlinking practice starts from composing your next post. This is why bloggers are always advised to pick one specific niche. If you have a specific niche, then all your blog posts should be related to various keywords.
Step 1 – Before Publishing
After composing your new blog post, surf your blog for topics related to that post, add such links as do follow links in your new blog post. This is a way of linking out to old posts from new blog posts.
By doing this, you are improving the value on this old post using the new post and also you are letting search engines know this new post is part of my blog and should get from my ranking juice.
Step 2 – After Publishing
Immediately you publish your new post, start sharing it and if possible use free social media automation tools to get the work done.
Let’s then link back to this new post from the old posts. You can use a tool such as Google Search Console to know which post is having a high ranking power and then link to the new one from that old post.
This lets the new post get crawled easily and the good part is that the new post gets a high recognition and super quick indexing.
Step 3 – What else?
How about forums? You need to run to them. These forums get crawled continuously, so definitely you need crawlers and potential traffic for this new post from these forums.
Share the post to forums and Q&A sites for better and quicker ranking of your new blog posts.
Am not against backlinks, But You need to know this
It’s better and easier to create that chain (hierarchy) around your blog posts than buy backlinks. If you don’t practice proper interlinking, all your backlinks will only boost certain pages,
every other page on your blog won’t get that SEO power.
Interlinking is a good on blog SEO practice that you need to pay attention to especially if you desire to quickly index and rank your new blog posts using your old blog posts.
Social media shares also play a vital role in getting indexed. But forums and Q&A pass better ranking power to your new blog posts.
