Genealogy Blogging – SEO Ranking Factors

Does your Genealogy Blog Have Good SEO Ranking Factors?


How does your Genealogy Blog’s SEO techniques measure up?

In a previous post I covered on-page SEO for Genealogy – Effective Surname Searches.  Search engine optimization is more than just internal factors.  Good SEO is an entire package consisting of content, the programming code, the architecture of your page, inbound and outbound links, social factors, trust and more.

No genealogy blogger wants to blog in a vacuum and having good SEO can greatly increase traffic.

Take a look at Search Engine Land’s Periodic Table of SEO Ranking Factors to get a good idea of what you need to optimize your genealogy blog for the search engines.
