Know Thy Visitors

Know your visitors first. What countries were they coming from? Were they reffered by search engines? If they were, what keywords did they use to find your blog? What is their browser? Did they use Firefox or Internet Explorer? What screen resolution are they using? Is it 1024x768 or 800x600? After reading your blog, which link did they click?

You need to know these data so that you know where to start. You need to optimize your blog based on these data. As for me, I optimized my blog so that they are both viewable on Firefox and IE, 1024x768 resolution and 800x600. Majority of my visitors use those settings on their computer, so, I have to make sure that my blog is viewable on these settings.

You don't have to do too much SEO if your blog is already performing well on search engines. If you are using one of the default blogger templates and already blogging for more than 6 months, chances are your blog is already search engine optimized. All you have to do is Adsense optimization.

You might be thinking, "Hey, how would I gather these data?" How would you know if your blog is already search engine optimized? I am using Performancing service and Google Analytics service. They are free, all you have to do is sign-up, put a little amount of code in your template and you are set. Actually, I just recently signed-up with Google Analytics. After signing up, I was overwhelmed because they provide too much information. Well, Performancing is good enough to gather these data, but if you want more information, try Google Analytics.
