Hi everyone!

I was super nervous to write on here because I'm not very savvy when it comes to the optimizing websites and SEOs, but I heard this was the right place to come to ask questions so I thought I'd give it a shot.

I created a blog back in August and just recently switched my blog over from Weebly to Wordpress. Even back when I had Weebly, I couldn't really figure out how to optimize my website for Google searches. Even when I type my blog name into Google it won't show up at all.

What can I do to get my blog at least showing up when I type in the blog name in Google? I don't even know where to start, so any advice on what I can do on the SEO/Google front would be very appreciated.

Thank you so much in advance!!

    First make a decent website on weebly or wordpress. Although, wordpress gives exciting options to you for blogging. Now create a webmaster tool account for your website and verify it with your blog website. webmaster tool will tell you reality about blog website that what is going exactly with it.
    Now start search engine optimization your blog pages because Google take time to index web pages automatically. optimize on page website seo and off page seo for better results.

    I just bought a domain for my wordpress blog. And I learned to submit it to google search console, so it can be indexed and google knows where to find your blog. That's it. I didnt know this hack when i was still using a free blog, not sure if a free one can get submitted to google search console though... Maybe you need to learn a bit about what Ive just said.

    Glad you were able to get your blog up and running.
    You start with google which gives specifics on doing seo correctly. Also think for a minute, a brick n mortar business... What is it that is needed to get their business noticed? Just an example on mindset for your digital business. Spend sometime on youtube learning seo techniques. You shouldn't have to spend any money getting up to speed on your seo. Once your pg is seo tweaked, start building backlinks to your site...slowly. Quality links. Before you know it your site will start rising in the rankings.

      When we started out it was tough to decide where or how to focus our attention. We eventually came up with forming categorised SEO which allowed us to identify key areas of interest. Such categories were; location seo, industry seo, niche seo and product seo. We kept the focus on one aspect at a time and expanded on each I.e. 5 different location targets. then built into the other categories from there whilst collecting data showing which provided the most hits and also qualitative data including where our most profitable clients are based etc. We would recommend this route once you are familiar with the basics.

    Variation of Keyword Phrase in a Header
    Keyword Phrase in the Text
    LSI Words
    Image Optimization
    Length of Content
    Quality, Unique Content
    Link to Internal Pages


    Off-page Optimization -
    Link resource for relevant sites

    Your website didn't appear on Google even you searched with the right its name. it means your website hasn't indexed by Google yet. To index faster, I highly recommend use Google Webmaster Tool. Reading this to know how: blog.kissmetrics.com/get-google-to-index/

    After your website is indexed. As many people mentioned above, on-page SEO and off-page SEO are next things you must learning.

    Here are some SEO blogs you should visit to learn more about SEO:

    Search Engine Land
    Moz
    Backlinko
    Matthew Woodward

    Finally, SEO is a long process that's why a perseverance is essential when doing SEO.

    Submit your website to google webmasters to make sure it is listed in google. Now work out on the best keywords your blog can be ranked. If the keywords are competitive, you dont stand much chance as a new blog. You need to make back links strong enough to compete. Get a strong social presence. Make your posts available in twitter, google + facebook, stumble upon etc...
    Check how many backlinks your blog has using 100% Free Backlink Checker | Top SEO Tools on WebSEO.gdn
    See the uniqueness of your blog using Advance Plagiarism Checker | Top SEO Tools on WebSEO.gdn
    See what improvements can be made in your blogs in terms of grammar, uniqueness, etc...
    Finally do cheap advertisements at relevant websites (nothing is free) and hope for the best.
    And the last but not the least, analyse your website using http://webseo.gdn/seo_analyzer/ to see areas where you can improve SEO of your webpages.
