Further to my two earlier posts about Search Engine Optimization and authors, I found an interesting article over on “The Book Designer” by Joel Friedlander that has six tips for SEO improvements. Of the six, four of them are a bit unusual (first two and last two) and worthy of consideration.
The first (anchor text) is actually helpful for others to use for you — get them to use some text and the name of your sitedomain in their actual link (i.e. click on “this great site about books at mybooksite.com” rather than click “here”). However, you can use it in your own in-site links too. The second (link juice) is also about how other, more popular sites link to you.
The third and fourth (title tag, first paragraph) are standard fare and I’ve covered in more detail earlier.
The last two (link out, link deep) are about giving links to more information or resources on the topic. You have to be a bit careful with those as you start to look like a link farm if you don’t have a lot of other text to go with it, but some good information.
Check out his article (linked above) for much more detail…
