Frustrated with the low CPC of Adsense ?

It has been proved that traffic from USA is powerful when compared to all the other countries.

Well, there are many reasons to consider it more powerful. This topic will be discussed after the main topic, so read the article completely.

Traffic is really important for every blog. There are many factors to judge the quality of traffic like " Desktop or mobile ", " Search traffic or Social media traffic ". But, the main thing would be " From which country does the visitor surfing your blog ".

Because, Country matters the most. For example, If you take ( An advertising network powered by Yahoo Bing ), They will consider, US and UK traffic of your blog as many advertisers looking for the traffic from those countries.

But, Why all those guys, Looking for US, UK traffic and How can you drive traffic from a specific country ?

In this blog post, The two questions will be answered, So be prepared to read this article.

Drive traffic from a specific country

1. Pick hosting server based on the country you are targeting

If you need more traffic from USA, you should optimize your blog according to the needs.

No one likes slow blogs which runs like a tortoise.

But, This is not only the thing.

If you pick hosting from US based server, Your blog will load as fast as it can for US visitors. Not only that, Your server location can help you to drive traffic from that country.

If your server is located in India, You can drive more traffic from India and If your server is located in US, you can drive more US traffic for your blog.

2. Pick a country level domain extension ( Not possible for US traffic )

Country level domains

A country level domain extension helps you to drive traffic from that specific country.

Because, search engines will consider your domain extension to only rank your blog higher on that country which you are targeting on domain using extension.

If you are targeting each and every country or need global traffic, You can select a domain extension .com or .org.

For example, If you need visits from India, You can select a .in domain for your blog.

If you need UK visits, Try .CO.UK domain.

But, this is not possible, If you are targeting US traffic as there is no .US domain extension.

But, it can be helpful, If you are targeting traffic from a specific country

3. Keyword research

5. Google search console Geo-Location settings

Google search console ( Webmaster tools ) helps you to rank higher in a country which you need traffic from.

How to Change Permalinks of Published Posts in Blogger

Posted by Samba Siva
Wanna know How to change
Permalinks of published posts in Blogger ?

Are you in a fear of breaking your old URL which results in 404 errors ?

Well, If your answer is yes. You are going to find answers for the two questions listed above.

Permalinks plays an important role in judging the ranking of your blog post in search engines like Google.

When you check any guide in the internet about writing seo optimized content, you will surely find permalinks as one of the main aspect.

So, you should understand " How important it is to optimize Permalink of a blog post ".

We have already convered a detailed guide on How to optimize permalinks of a blog post, you can read that for better understanding of permalinks.

In this blog post, we will see a simple but effective guide on " changing permalinks of published posts in Blogger".

What is a Permalink ?

A Permalink is the URL of the blog post.

I am not willing to write so much about this one as each and every blogger has an idea on what are permalinks.

How to change permalinks of published posts in Blogger

1. Go to and sign in with your Google account

2. Select to your desired blog

3. Select a blog post, which you want to edit the Permalink

4. After deciding which post to edit, click on view and copy the URL and paste it on notepad ( We will need this later )

5. Click on edit and revert the blog post to draft.

6. Now click on permalinks and click custom permalink, Type your new URL ( Never use Underscores in URL's )

7. Click on Update

8. Hurrah, you have changed the Permalink of published posts in Blogger

But wait, Now go to the old URL ( which you have copied in step-4 )

After going to the old URL, you should see a 404 error ( Not found error )
If a visitor visits your old URL, Then he will get a 404 error which irritates them.

Not only a visitor, Search engine bots like Googlebot never like 404 errors. 404 errors can affect your blog rankings on Google.

So, you should redirect the old URL to the new URL for avoiding ranking effects.

Redirect the old URL to new URL

1. Go to settings > Search prefences

2. Click on custom redirects > Edit

3. Click add new redirect

4. Input your old blog post URL ( without your domain ) in the first box.

For example, if your URL is:



5. In the second box, input your new URL ( Same as the above method, remove domain from the URL )

6. Select the permanent checkbox. A permanent redirect gives 301 code to search bots which helps you not to lose rankings on Google.

7. Click on save.

Now, visit your old blog post URL, you will see that, it will redirect to the new URL.

Why changing permalinks ?

At first, no one cares Permalink as they won't seem to be an important aspect of On-page seo.

But when they start learning Seo in famous blogs like Shoutmeloud, they will understood that permalinks are also an important aspect.

But, why it is important to change or edit Permalink:

You are might using underscore's in your URL's:

Permalinks shouldn't contain underscores " _ ". Actually, To add spaces in URL, it is better to use a Dash ( " - " ).

Your URLs might be longer:

The URLs of blog posts shouldn't be longer. The smaller it is, the better it ranks on search engines

Your URLs might having stop words:

Search engines like Google will skip some words from the Permalinks, those are called stop words.

It is better to remove those stop words from permalinks.

Some of the examples of stop words are A, an, the, on, of etc

But, No CMS offers editing Permalinks after publishing the post. So they will start searching for ' How to change permalinks of published posts in Blogger ' and lands on blog posts like this one.


This is our guide to changing Permalinks of already published posts.

I think it might help you to improve your website rankings on Google.

If you like this one, you can share it on social media using the share buttons.

Building backlinks is really a must do task for every blogger. Well, there are many other bloggers, Who totally depend on Social media. If you are also one of those Bloggers, You won't get any success, according to me. Because, Traffic from social media is a temporary task.

Instead, Search engine traffic is not fully a permanent nor temporary task. You can drive stable amounts of traffic regularly to your website.

But, If you want organic traffic, You need some backlinks. But wait, Building links is not only the task. You need to make them get indexed on Google.

But, most of the working limited indexing software's are paid. So you should invest on them, If you have some budget. If not, Leave this one.

6 Factors that Judge the Quality of a Backlink

Posted by Samba Siva
Building backlinks is really important, If you want to improve your organic traffic. Many Seo experts belives that Link Building is the main ranking factor which we need to focus on.

But, According to Google, In a Nutshell, It is better to have 5 quality backlinks than 50 low quality links.

So you will have to understand, How important it is to focus on building high quality links. 

Google gives priority to quality when compared to the quantity. That's why, sometimes, A site with 30 backlinks ranks higher than a site with 100 links. But it's really rare. 

After reading the above paragraphs, Your mind should start thinking about " What makes a backlink,high quality link ? ". That's why, In this blog post, I'm going to tell you" How to Judge the quality of a backlink without any tools 

Judge backlink quality

How to judge the quality of a backlink ( Factors )

1. Nofollow or dofollow

This one needs no introduction at all. Even the beginners know the difference between Dofollow and Nofollow links.

But as per the formality, A quick information about Nofollow and dofollow links.

Nofollow is a HTML tag which tells Google not to pass link juice for the linked site from the blog. It can be useful, if you are linking to a spammed blog.

Dofollow is a HTML tag which tells Google to pass link juice from one site to another. Dofollow links are really good for improving rankings. 

We can judge the link quality by checking whether it is a dofollow or nofollow link.

2. Location of the link

Well, there are many link building techniques ranging from Blog commenting to Infographic submission. All of the link building techniques won't gives links from one place.

For example, Blog commenting gives links from the comments ( Below posts ) and Broken link building technique gives links from the body of the article. At the same time, Links from footer of templates ( Sitewide links ) comes from the footers and sidebars.

Well, Links which are located closely to the content works better than the links far from article body. That's why, Experts never recommend sitewide links.

Very high quality backlinks:

From article body

Medium quality link locations:

From Comments

Low quality link locations

Below the widgets like subscription widgets.

3. Metrics

Well, We all start checking out the metrics of a blog before contributing an article ( Guest posting ) or Building alink back from that webpage.

There are many metrics like DA, PA, TF, CF etc.

A long ago, we have checked the pagerank of a blog for checking " How effective a backlink is ". But, Pagerank is officially dead and no longer gets updated. So, we can't judge backlink quality by checking pagrank.

Instead, start checking DA ( Domain Authority ) and PA ( Page authority ) of a website. DA and PA are metrics developed by SeoMoz.

4. Is that editorially placed ?

Many of the websites gives out dofollow links from Profiles. Those are called profile links which makes no sense at all. 

Because, they were placed by the user, not by the editor or the webmaster. 

But, How Google knows about, Who placed the link ?

Well, My answer would be don't know. Google never released any information regarding the backlink quality or the backlink crawler. So we can't explain you now.

5. Are you getting any traffic from the link ?

Natural links always drives traffic to the linked blogs. According to me, natural links refers to those links placed by the webmaster in his article as a reference.

I have already told you that links placed in the article body works better than other places. But this isn't about location of link.

You can judge your backlink quality by checking whether it drives you traffic or not.

But this is not only the factor, you will have to consider all the factors listed in this article. 

We all know, Google loves natural links and Natural links always drives traffic.

6. Does the link giving site sandboxed or penalized by Google ?

Sandboxing refers to a temporary ban from Google, which removes websites from index for sometime, If the webmaster is using black hat techniques.

If you get a backlink from a penalized or sandboxed site, you should start asking the webmaster to remove your link or disavow it. Otherwise, your website will also gets penalized.

A quality link will never comes from a sandboxed or penalized site. 

Wrapping Up

There are many other factors which needs to be get listed here. I am still researching about ' Quality backlinks '. When I find another factor, I will update this blog post, So Be sure to Bookmark this page or share it in social media.

So you can get exposure, Backlinks and traffic from High quality article submission sites.

Free dofollow article submission sites list

Seeking Alpha is one of the high PR article submission sites as It has a PR of 7 ( Now PR is dead, so we can't consider it )

Seeking alpha has a DA of 80 and PA of 83 which means it's really a high authority website.

But wait, SeekingAlpha never provides dofollow links. That means you can only get nofollow links to your website which has very low impact in search engine rankings.

But you can drive huge traffic and exposure to your blog. It's definitely worth writing for seeking Alpha.

Ehow is one of the world's largest " How To " website and think what it has DA of 87

It is one of the websites with huge authority in the eyes of Google. All the articles of Ehow ranks in the first page easily, no matter what the article length is.

Hubpages is a get paid to write website which means you will get paid for the articles you publish.

But they won't provide guaranteed rates per post. Your earnings depens upon the views of your article. You can add your Adsense code and affiliate codes for monetizing your articles.

Not only that, Hubpages give you dofollow links from your article. But you around publish atleast 3 articles before linking to your blog.

Hubpage is also one of the best website around the world. So you can maximum exprosure, If you publish an article in Hubpages.

Hubpages is one of the best and free dofollow article submissions sites ever.

Well, Ezine articles is one of the oldest article submission sites, But they have very strict terms.

They provide dofollow links for your site within the article resulting in more impact on improving your website rankings

Basically, A search engine like Google. But, Technorati is an all rounder

Technorati has an Ad network, A website directory and one of the free dofollow article submission sites.

Technorati provides Dofollow backlinks and maximum exposure for those who submit articles to their directory.

Another Revenue sharing sure like Hubpges, But have very strict terms.

Getting approved by Infobarrel is really harder than getting an Adsesne account ( Just kidding ). Do you will have to understand, How difficult it is to get a backlink from Infobarrel.

But, Infobarrel gives dofollow links which gives you a very good rankings boost in Google in no time.

Find Long Tail Keywords Quickly- A Detailed Guide

Posted by Samba Siva
Need a detailed guide to find long tail keywords for Seo purposes ?

Are you tired of using short tail keywords which brings no search traffic ?

Keywords play a vital role in search engine optimization. We can say that Seo starts with keywords.

If there are no keywords, What you will target for optimization. Yes, it would be easier for us, as we can simply write content for humans. But, How Google ranks blogs ?

Google is purely depended on keywords. While Googlebot checks the webpage, it looks for some on-site factors and then on-page Seo ( Optimizing a specific webpage for a keyword can be called as On-Page Seo ). So Google cannot give related results for the visitors. Hence, Google will fail. But this isn't about the importance of keywords or something. Let's dive into the article Introduction.

Keywords are mainly classified into two groups:

1. Short tail keywords

2. Long Tail Keywords

Short tail keywords:

short tail keywords

These type of keywords can drive huge number of visitors from search engines ( Organic traffic ).

An example of short tail keyword would be:

" Build backlinks "

Have you observed the keyword ?

How sweet it is. Actually, think as a visitor, do you search for that keyword ?

According to me, Your answer would be Yes, Why not ?.

Like you, many people search for this keyword, If they need a tutorial on Building high quality backlinks. So it will increase the search volume ( Monthly searches ) for the keyword.

But now think as a Blogger, The keyword Build Backlinks has huge competition. Ranking for that keyword is almost impossible for newbie and intermediates too. You shouldn't target it unless you have huge authority.

Long Tail keywords:

Long tail keywords

 These type of keywords has low number of monthly searches ( Volume ), but can help you in ranking higher easily. With these  keywords, you can easily reach First page of Google in very short time.

An example of Long tail keywords would be:

Build High quality backlinks quickly

As a visitor, Do you search for that keyword ?

The chances might be 50-50. If you only need to know about high quality links, you would search for that. That's why, the volume of long tail keywords would always be low. But that doesn't mean, they have very low volume. Here is an article to prove it. Read How ' Neil Patel generated 20,000 visits using a long tail keyword ?

Even you are a beginner or very new to blogging ( Dumb ), you can target long tail keywords. But, that doesn't mean, you will reach first page surely. Long tail keywords have some competition, as many newbie bloggers target them. But, If you follow, some good on page seo optimization techniques and use this guide on Writing Seo optimized content, your chances of getting on the first page of Google may increase.

In this Blog post, we will give you some simple and nice ideas to quickly find Long tail keywords.

Short tail keywords vs Long Tail keywords

The above graph gives us an approximate idea on Short tail keywords vs Long tail keywords.

Both Long and short Tail keywords have advantages and disadvantages too.

Advantages of Short tail keywords

1. High  volume

2. High CPC ( Short tail keywords always have high CPC when compared to long tail keywords.)


1. High competition ( Almost impossible to rank )

Short tail keywords move around high, high, high. They have Hugh competition, High volume, High CPC.

Advantages of Long tail keywords:

1. Low competition

2. Can give you more targeted traffic.


1. Low volume ( means you will get less number of visits )

2. Low CPC ( Not always )

Long tail keywords revolves around low, low, low. They have Low competition, low volume, low CPC.

How to Find Long tail keywords quickly

Note: All these methods are working. But again these are not guaranteed. They may work or won't work sometimes based on the keyword you are targeting.

Use Google suggestions

When you type something into the search box of Google, it will automatically shows you related queries for your keyword and you can really find long tail keywords in no time.

1. Go to ad input your keyword. For example, If your keyword is " Build Backlinks " , you can input that.

2. Google will show you the related queries for your keyword. You can see in the above image. Like that you can find huge number of long tail keywords instantly. There is no need of using tools or something.

Use Related searches of Google

When you search for something on Google, it will show you some results. At the end of the page, you can find related searches for your keyword.

I have searched for make money from a blog and here are the related searches for my keyword.
Find long tail keywords quickly

The advantage of using Related searches is, Google will only show keywords with good volume on related searches tab. So you can proceed using them as your focus  keyword.

Use Quora or Yahoo answers

You can use popular communities or Q&A sites like Quora or Yahoo answers to find long trail keywords easily. Can't get me ?

There are many people who asks thousands of questions daily on Q&A sites like Quora. Some of the questions might include a thread with your keyword.

For example, If your focus keyword is On-page Seo you can search for that.

Quora will show you questions, containing your keyword. As they are in question format, you can find many long tail keywords in them.

We will take above example, If you search for on-page Seo, Quora gave you results like:

What is On-Page seo optimization

Any On-Page Seo optimization techniques ?

More questions......

In the second question, you can see, there is a long tail keyword. That is " On Page Seo optimization techniques ". Hurrah, you have found a long tail keyword.

Start spying on your competitors

For example, you are in a need of long tail keyword related to link building. And you are frustrated with all the methods listed above. I have already told you that Sometimes they might won't work.

So you can find long tail keywords related to link building or any other niche by spying on your competitors.

To spy on your competitors:

1. Make a list of top websites and blogs related to your focus keyword.

2. Then go to Google and search for your keyword Blog Name .

For example, Mine was link building and I have selected Neil Patel as my competitor.

So,, I search for Link Building and Google gives me results of related to link building.

So I will start reading his articles related to link building and make a note of all the long tail keywords in the article.

What, All long tail keywords in an article, How they target more than 3 keywords ?

Can't get me ?

Actually experts never stuff keywords or stress a specific keyword. If they target a keyword " Link Building tips ", they wouldn't repeat it too many times. Instead they will take the help of LSI keywords.

LSI keywors are nothing other than synonyms or related keywords in Seo.

For example, If you written about " How to add Adsense ads in Blogger ", You need to repeat it for maintaing good keyword density. But visitors may feel bad, If they notice that you are stuffing keywords. That's why, it is better to use LSI keywords in the place of Focused keywords ( only sometimes, Never try ranking for multiple keywords )

So an example of LSI keyword for the above would be " How to Insert Adsense ads in Blogger.

You can observe that I have used a synonym " Insert " in the place of " add ". So we got an LSI keyword. But keep in mind that your keyword density shouldn't be increased than 1-2% including LSI Keywords.

But Why I am taking about this ?

I told you that reading articles of competitors and making a list of long tail keywords in the above step.

While reading the competitor's article, Make sure you make a note of his focus keyword and LSI keywords.

Then you can find long tail keywords easily.

Use UberSuggest

Based on many Seo experts, UbserSuggest is really good for finding long tail keywords and keyword suggestions.

All you need is go to UberSuggest and input your targeted keyword and it will provide many Long tail keywords related to your keyword.

Start thinking

Create Long tail keywords

When you are tired with all the above methods and not willing to try any of the above method, you should try this one. All the above methods takes some time to find good and long tail keywords.

So you should start thinking and create long tail keywords yourself without the help of any tools.

First of all, you need a focus keyword. For example, I have selected Build Backlinks

So I should start thinking about the keyword and it's aspects.

Backlink building is more dependent on Quality. So, we should select a keyword based on Quality. Here are some keywords striking my mind:

Build high quality backlinks

How to make high quality backlinks

Get Quality links for free

How to build high quality links quickly

So, Iike that. Keep your focus keyword in mind and think about it's aspects.

Include one of the main aspect in the keyword and it would automatically turn into a long tail keyword resulting in higher rankings.

What's next

After finding some long tail keywords, it is the time to analyze them.

For this you need a keyword tool like SemRush, KWFinder, Serpstat etc. I recommend them as I regularly use them for Seo purposes.

Go to your desired keyword research tool
Input long tail keywords

Input your long tail keyword.

Keyword difficulty
It may or may not provide details. It's based on your keyword.

If you haven't got any information, you need to use your mind, and calculate whether the blogs ranking on the first page are stronger than you or not.

If the blogs listed on the first page for your keyword are having high number of backlinks, authority. You should leave the keyword.

When to target Short tail keywords ?

I have already told you that ranking for Short tail keywords is almost impossible. But, you can see, I have used a word " almost " . That means, you have some chances to rank for those keywords.

For example, you can see in above image, According to Alexa, ShoutmeLoud ( My favourite Blogger Harsh is the man behind this blog ), is ranking for some keywords, you can see them in the above image.

It is ranking for short tail keywords like:

   amazon affiliate
  amazon associates

All the above ones are clearly short tail keywords and brand names. So the brand's are already targeting the keyword.

So How ShoutMeLoud ranked for those keywords ?

The answer can be easily explained by one word " Authority ". Shoutmeloud has good authority in the eyes of Google. To gain authority and rank for short tail keywords, you need:

Backlinks: Many experts and newbies including me beleives that Backlinks are the main ranking factors of Google. According to me, it is right. The more backlinks you have, the more chances to rank for any keyword.

Update Frequency: I think this is also a main ranking factor used by Google. Bloggers should try updating their content regularly. Updating doesn't refers to changing all the text in an article, some minimial changes like Grammar correction or extra information is enough.

Speed: No doubt, all Seo articles, cone to this point. Google officially told that " Speed is now a ranking factor '. So you should start maintaing good load time for your blog.

Oh, my gosh, you have already completed reading 2000 words. I know, you were already bored.

Here is a list from Brian Dean on Google ranking factors. If you think, your blog can pass all ranking factors, you can target short tail keywords and can drive huge traffic.


This is our guide to find long tail keywords easily and quickly. It is really good for beginners, As I have listed each and everything carefully to make it clear for beginners too.

2. Know what to optimize

There are many ranking factors which you need to take care of, to improve your website rankings on Google.

To know which factors we need to start working on, we need to analyze our blog.

Analyzing your blog :

Content: To improve your website rankings on Google, content is the main factor. According to me, Content is the king forever. If your blog have low quality content, you should remove or update all the low quality articles. If your blog contains articles less than 300 words, they are considered poor or low quality articles.

Content can be considered poor by:

Checking the word length ( below 300 words considered poor )

Checking whether You have written copied content ( You should remove Copied content )

Checking Keyword density of articles  ( Keyword density over 1.5% considered keyword stuffing )

Checking H1- H6 Tags ( If you place H1 tag in the content, you should remove it, Use H2-H5 tags )

Checking Internal and OutBound Links ( Linking to spammy blog's can result in Outbound link penalty )

It is better to check content manually other than using a heartless online tool.

Speed: Try using tools like Google pagespeed insights or GtMetrix which gives us accurate results regarding your blog load time. Your content must be shown within 3 seconds and your blog must fully load within 6 seconds to achieve good rankings in Google.

Backlinks: If your blog has low quality backlinks, we should remove them or do something to optimize our backlinks.
Backlinks issues

We can judge the quality of a link by:

Checking whether it is related to your blog

Checking whether it is placed on footer or some location too far from body to content

Checking How many external links are there in the webpage including your link

Checking whether the link giving webpage is not penalized or sandboxed by Google

Checking the metrics of blog like DA, PA and some other metrics.

After finding low quality links, we should optimize them. The solution is given below ( Read the article fully ).

You can analyze your backlinks using a accurate tool like Semrush, Majestic, Ahrefs, Rank Signals etc.

Ahrefs works better when it comes to analyzing bad and low quality links.

Broken Links: Broken links are really annoying for visitors and may they will never visit your website. We must take care of Broken links
Broken links found

Broken links are generated when:

You remove an article from your blog

You changed the permalink

One of your reference article or media is removed or changed.

You can analyze broken links using some online tools like Broken Link Check, Dead  Link checker or any other tool you like

Responsive issues

Now, mobile users are increasing day by day.

That's why, Google rolled out an algorithm regarding responsiveness of a website.

If your website is unresponsive and mobile users are watching desktop version of your blog, you should change your theme or make it responsive.

Optimize categories and labels: 

After Google rolled out Panda algorithm, All website owners were shocked and lost their organic traffic. Google panda is all about quality.

All your webpages indexed in Google must be properly optimized and must not be copied or duplicate content.

When it comes to categories and labels, they contain your blog post excerpts which results in duplicate content.

So we should take care of labels and categories to improve your website rankings on Google. You can solve them easily, We have given a solution below ( Read the article fully )

Not only these factors, there are many things to analyze and solve. But, the most important factors which affect search rankings are listed above.

3. Solve the Issues

After analyzing your blog's issues, It is the time to resolve them and then you can improve your website rankings on Google instantly.

Fixing Content : 

Try updating the article, give out some more information to your readers. If your blog post is only a small 300 word article, try updating it with some more information, This will help your blog readers.

If your blog has copied content, I recommend you to delete them right away and be sure to redirect the post link to make sure that you haven't generated a new Broken link. If your blog has copied content and you haven't removed it, it is almost impossible to improve your website rankings on Google.

If your blog has keyword stuffed content, You should reduce the number of keywords in your article and improve the size of the article.

Fixing blog load time:

After analyzing our blog load time with a webpage speed checker tool, it is the time to solve issues with your big load time. To optimize your blog:

optimize speed

1. Start using caching plugin. A caching plugin generates a cache file which tells the browser not to load from the network connection. Instead, it would load our blog using the cache file. So your blog would load faster. But keep in mind not to set long expiration time for caching files, If you set long expiration times, it would take so much time to load when your blog is updated.

2. Start using a good CDN ( content delivery network ) service like Maxcdn or Cloudflare to improve your blog load time.

3. Minify JavaScript and HTML and CSS using this tool. But keep in mind, after minifying your coding, It would be really hard to read it. So it is better to make necessary changes ( Like changing Colors, Sizes etc ) before minifying your codes.

Use better themes, If you are using Wordpress. Thrive themes are really good based on my experience. Here is a post on Thrive Themes Discount Code, if you need a good and optimized theme.

As speed is also a ranking factor, it is better to decrease blog load time to improve your website rankings on Google

Fixing Backlinks:

We have already seen about judging the quality of backlinks. When you find some low quality links, There are two ways to get it removed.

Contact the webmaster: You can ask the administrator of the website to manually remove your backlink. If they watch your Email, They will remove our link.

But sometimes, webmasters wing respond quickly. They can take up to 1 month to respond. In the case, the second one would be helpful.

Disavow backlinks: 

1. Use a good and accurate backlink checker tool and make a list of bad backlink source URL'S.

2. Go to this Disavow file generator an input all the URL of bad backlinks and it will generate a txt file. Download it.

3. Go to the disavow tool of Webmaster tools

4. Select your domain and click on submit.

5. Again click on Disavow, A pop-up appears asking you to upload a txt file containing your bad links.

6. Upload the downloaded file in step-2 and click on Disavow.

Give Google sometime to block passing of link juice from the bad. This process may takes up to 2 weeks depending upon the indexing of the backlink giving URL

Fixing Broken links

Actually fixing broken links is easier than analyzing them. Finding Broken links takes so much time, as all the hyperlinks in your webpage should be checked. To fix Broken links, you can use redirection plugin for WordPress.

If you are using Blogger, you can easily redirect broken links using Custom redirects tab of Search preference menu.

Fixing Responsiveness issues : 

We can do nothing about this. We should change our template or hire a web designer to make changes in your blog theme to make it optimized for mobile users.

Fixing Labels and categories:

Fixing labels is easy. Actually it isn't mandatory for optimizing labels to improve your website rankings on Google. But, It can help you in avoiding Google penalities like Panda.

To optimize labels:

You can use a Noindex tag for Labels and categories

You can add disallow crashing of Labels using robots.txt file.

Rad this article from Shoutmeloud on optimizing Categories in wordpress

We have made required changes in our blog for improving search engine performance. There are some aspects to analyze and recover. May be in future, we will add those into the list.

You can give us suggestions to add an aspect to take care of using the comments section.

4. Build high quality Backlinks

We have already removed all low quality backlinks to improve our search rankings, But that doesn't mean building links is not good for Seo.

We need to concentrate on quality, not quantity. Here are some techniques to grab some high quality links:

1. Make use of expert round ups : 

Build links using expert Roundup
