Atish: Thanks for having me here, Chinedu.
Atish: I am Atish Ranjan from a small town, Sitamarhi in India. Currently staying in the capital city, Delhi where I am working with an IT firm along with blogging. I have started blogging in the year 2010 with www.techtricksworld.com
Atish: Yeah, I have been blogging around 4 years now. When I started blogging, I did not even know that the awesome thing I was doing is called Blogging. I love Internet and also love to share what I know thus I started a blogspot blog to share small PC tips and tricks.
I have more than 10 blogs. The main reason I blog is to learn new stuff everyday along with making money. Also, it helps me to meet new and like minded people whom I like very much.
Atish: Yes, you are correct! I am a SEO professional as well.
SEO is set of strategies that are applied to improve the visibility of websites in search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo etc. SEO include Onsite and offsite techniques that should be applied.
On Site SEO – SEO Strategies that are done on the website are called On site SEO such as meta tag optimization, content optimization, image optimization, URL optimization etc.
Off Site SEO – SEO Strategies that are done outside the website such as Link building, social promotion etc.
Atish: In the language of SEO, White hat includes those strategies which complies with the Search engines’ quality guidelines, and black hat includes strategies which are against those quality guidelines such as keyword stuffing, heavy spam link building, plagiarism etc.
Atish: No, I won’t suggest it because it might give you fast result but those results cannot be sustained for a long time, and infact your website will be more prone to be penalized.
Atish: I agree that Social media is a vital source of traffic and you should work more to get even more social traffic but in my opinion organic traffic is the king and it is one which makes you earn more money and also makes your blog more valuable.
SEO has its own importance and it will be there as long as the search engines will exist.

Atish: It consists of many things which should be done without fail. They include:
1. Keyword research.
2. Writing title and Meta description tags
3. Writing SEO optimized content as well as unique.
4. URLs should be SEO friendly.
5. Your content should have better internal linking as well as some outbound links of good resources.
These are the basic things of On page SEO which should be done in order to optimize your website.
Atish: As I described above every step has their impact on website’s SEO but the mostly Title tag and the content on the page impact the most in my opinion.
Atish: There are many tags which can be added to the web pages but mostly the Title tag and Meta description are added for better SEO.
Meta Tags don’t show on the web page rather they hold the information about the page which are read by search engine crawlers.
While writing Title and Meta descriptions always include the main targeted keyword in them. Usually put it at the first in Title.
Atish: Just like you build relationships with other people and get linked to them to make your presence better in society, link building is also a getting linked from good websites to improve its presence in search engines.
As many quality backlinks you get from authority websites, you notice improvement in search rankings.
Atish: To earn links your website should hold great content and true facts just like wikepedia, about.com etc. Thus, try to create great content so that when other would write on similar topic,, they might link to your content.
Atish: High quality links are those which you get from websites in the same industry such as if you website is related to jewelry then the links from some other jewelry site can be good and the best if the link placement is done in a natural way. If I say natural then it means link should be placed as reference article or resource. The reverse is for low quality links, they usually don’t come from websites in thesame industry with you.
Atish: Link Bait is anything on your website whether an informative article, Video or ebook which people would like to link to.
So this is a kind of link earning method. If you create great resources on your own websites then you can earn a lot of backlinks all across the web.
Atish: Learning a lot of things is good but when you run a business then it is not an easy task or in fact almost impossible to manage everything alone. You need a team to do particular tasks.
Atish: If the readers and the site owner are bloggers, I would advise them to work harder and smarter without thinking of quick money. Once you are on track money start flowing into your pocket.
Atish: The pleasure is mine. Thanks Chinedu! I enjoyed the conversation
