How to get lots more hits on blogs from search engines

Have you found when using Blogger you may not get as many hits as say a self hosted site?

Well the most common mistakes people use on blogger is firstly poorly worded titles or even missing titles.

Secondly people put intro's to the pages, ie the ones done via layout.

Right just a quick recap on the first one, you want more hits carefully plan your wording in the title because, 1) it is used as that posts URL and, 2) It pretty much is the first thing people will see when searching keywords.

So think carefully you need a good informative title of about 5-6 words long. These should be your primary keywords for that particular page, so make sure you use them at a natural frequency throughout your post. Don't stuff to many in for the sake of it. If it looks unnatural change it because search engine algorithms are not stupid.

Right and to the second point. Putting a description to go with your blog title is essentially a waste of time as it will feature in all search engine results for your pages and bump down vital information about that page which users will not see. Plus it does count as duplication and might affect page rank and SERP's.

The best way to avoid this is either don't bother with a description or add some robot text to make it a no-follow and thus it wont feature in the results.

I hope that helps.
