This entails doing things that will give a diversified portfolio of general backlinks to the site as opposed to the individual web page.

  • RSS feeds submission

Let me quickly reveal another search engine optimization(SEO) strategy you can use to quickly increase search engine ranking for a wider range of / and considerably enhance to your website.

You see, once you have picked on a major keyword you want to rank a page for, simply identify other keywords you can equally rank the page for. You know the advantage you derive from this multiple optimization of keywords for a particular page?

As you start getting backlinks for your major keyword pointing at that particular page, you are simultaneously pointing backlinks to that same page for your other identified keywords, since the other identified keywords are equally trying to rank utilizing the same page. By implication, those backlinks will equally count for that page for the other keywords and you do not have to start from zero in pointing links to that page for those other keywords unlike it would have been if you write out a fresh post for each of the other identified keywords/keyword phrases.

To just get that page to rank for each and every other keyword/keyword phrase, all you have to do is use each keywords anchor text to point backlinks to the post and those new backlinks will be added to the other older backlinks you have gotten for other keyword phrases also pointing to that page and the page will thus rank much faster for each and every keyword phrase.
