Still the content is king! You’ll update your blog regularly with user friendly informative articles which should help you to improve your rank with targeted keywords. Write an article including your keywords but never do this crazy thing as a spammer.

This is a vital technique of all search engine optimization techniques. If you update your blog daily then search engine crawler bots should spend time on your blog daily and its a good signal to rank higher.
# Social media sites and social bookmarking sites
Social media sites are still working magically to improve the visibility of a webpage. You’ll active on social media sites like Facebook, Google and twitter and try to increase the number of fans regularly, you’ll update all of them with all updates of your blog. Social media sites helps a lot to improve blog’s traffic. Also focus on higher ranking social bookmarking sites and submit your webpage or webpages uniquely. Never do it for rank higher or never let search engines that you’re doing this to rank higher, try to make it user friendly as much as possible.
Only high quality relevant backlinks
Well, I’m not telling you to manage tons of do-follow backlinks from higher ranking websites! At this time, you just have to drop your link on those sites which are highly relevant and also have higher ranking. I’ve written an article based on link building strategy. So, find out higher ranking niche blogs and try to drop a single link of your site there. Creating high quality backlinks from niche sites is a great search engine optimization technique to rank higher. Poor quality link building strategy has gone now there’re so many factors to consider for quality link building and still if you do spamming then search engines should kick you out.
