Search engine optimization just got better with the increasing popularity of a tiny rectangular 2D barcode. Quick Response or QR codes are barcodes that contain information embedded in the form of patterns. When scanned using a smart phone the codes are interpreted and direct you to a URL location on the Internet or provide the user with specific information about a product or service. SEO firms have realized the potential of these codes and adopted them to drive qualitative traffic to websites and convert them into customers.
There is a robust demand for smart phones in the consumer market and sales have risen exponentially. This has given rise to the inclusion of mobile marketing campaigns and mobile SEO strategies to target the expanding mobile consumer base. The synergy of SEO and QR codes could open up a whole world of possibilities for the average marketer. Since the underlying characteristic of SEO is to drive traffic and gain visibility for web content, QR codes can successfully facilitate the process of converting offline traffic into qualitative online traffic.
Vladimir Prelovac is SEO expert and WordPress solution provider. I spent a whole day reading his blog about SEO tips and advice for WordPress. I have got to say that I am pretty much impressed. Every blogger, SEO, webmaster should read his blog. Its my recommendation. You will find huge stuff and great advice about how you can improve your current website in every aspect. I have observed another specific thing at Vladimir Prelovac’s site that whatever he posts; gets good page rank. He is not getting huge comments, Twitter, Digg and Facebook love as compared to mashable but still he has got good page ranks all over in his site even when the article is really small. Great job on original content. I have been using some of plugins by Vladimir e.g. ‘SEO Super Comments‘ which can increase your readership at considerable rate by utilizing your comments for SEO purpose resulting increase in traffic. I have noticed something with SEO Super Comments lately that it can give you trouble with the duplicated meta tags where it creates separate page for every single comment. The comment page gets the same meta information as it is for the post. I hope to get update about this great plugin on this one soon. Anyways! here is another great tool for bloggers, SEOs, webmasters and developers to improve their website overall performance in search engines. Its Firefox plugin by ‘Vladimir’ … named as SEO Doctor.
Doesn’t matter what niche your website / blog is about, there is always need to promote it to get more traffic and readers. Building quality content is great but you need to promote your website / blog as you go. While you can submit your website into thousands of search engines and directories but there are still some really useful options for increasing website traffic towards your website by other organic means. I have been going through several resources to find a way to promote TechMynd. I have been successful. TechMynd’s readership has increased past few months a lot. I want to share with you one of the easiest method I did with TechMynd to get it promoted in few weeks.
Plugins are cool. Every WordPress powered blog uses different plugins. They give your blog wings. There are few things you must be aware of before using plugins. What I do, I just test the plugin before I actually use it. All the plugins out there are not trustworthy. Even if any plugin comes by a trusted source, it can have bugs which will make your blogging life a bit complicated. I regularly check plugins, update plugins whenever any update is available and remove the plugin which contain any bug. Here are few popular WPplugins I noticed some bugs in them recently.
