I hope you all had a rocking start of the year. Stay tuned to get some of the most wanted seo updates.

Wisely Use Your Blog Sidebar

How to place your stuff on the website so that people should view it properly – this is the main question in everybody’s mind. Most people will say or think that placing the stuff on the main page / home page is more meaningful if compared to rest of the pages.

There has to be different rule for blogs – if you see how to place your stuff on blogs – they are way different than the normal website placement.

Stuff Placement on Blogs
The reason it is because – the blog posts are crawled and ranked individually on search engines. Any particular blog post might have high rank for the keyword but your blog’s homepage is not visible even in top 100 for the same keywords.

That is why you have to use the blog sidebar wisely.

Why you should care about sidebar and place your all featured stuff – because sidebar is visible throughout the blog – even if your any blog post is visited directly – then also the user could see the stuff your site has.

Points to Takecare When Placing
The most needed stuff that you have to place on the blog sidebar is –

  • Recent posts widget, which outlines the kind of posts, which are currently written.
  • Featured post – or most read posts widget.
  • If possible you can include the recent comments and most comments.
  • Include the advertisements.
  • Blog archives widget.
  • Any social network widget such as facebook or mybloglog.
  • Also, you could place links to your different sections on the blog.

Proper visibility of your included stuff is thus necessary to bind the user to your blog – all these above mentioned points increases the interest of the user and leads to the feed subscription.

Easy to Get Your Blog Post in Search Result

The search results have taken itself to the next level – now it’s not about the feedburner or twitter stats that just matters more. Few more things also have come into existence. The new changes to the search result have made things more interesting.

New Google Search Results Changes
Yesterday I was searching for something on Google and when I saw the search results I get quite excited. I personally feel this is the good change that Google has done in order to help many.

At the bottom of the search result I found that there was a blog entry related to my search query. To my surprise I never subscribed to it – but a small text was written beside the name of the person with saying, “connected via Gmail”.

Google Social Circle
This was social circle entry in search results, this does mean that who ever you are subscribed to or added to your contact list or in your Gtalk list, there blog post, twitter entry, facebook entry will be displayed in the search result.

Happy Adding
You don’t have to do anything else if you are already a feedburner user then your blog posts will be automatically crawled and shown in the social circle results, and also to the user who have added you either on feedburner, Gtalk or Gmail.

It’s quite good – in terms of getting more clicks and you don’t have to optimize your content in order to get listed yourself in search result.
