How to Write SEO Friendly Blog Posts

The full name of SEO is Search Engine Optimization. You are writing SEO friendly article, this means that you are telling Google on which topic your article is written. Through this, you are optimizing the content for the search engine.

Which has many advantages like the traffic to the site will increase. On searching your article, it will come on the first page of google. There will be more and more visitors. The rank of your site will increase. These are all its advantages. Through this, the same content that visitors want can be given to google users. Your income will also increase.

So if you follow the tips given below, you will understand everything.

1. Keyword Research

The first question that must have come to your mind is what is this keyword. No more Rocket Science. Whatever Phrase and Sentence you search in Google is your keyword. Like you search in google "how to earn money from social media".

This is your keyword. Now the next question comes which keyword would be more correct. For this, you have to use tools like there is a free tool from Google. Whose name is "Google Keyword Planner". You should choose such a keyword in which the competition is low, you can rank such a keyword quickly.

If you want, you can also give keywords according to you, you can just check the competition with Google Keyword Planner. One important thing is to use a Long Tail Keyword. The advantage of this is, you can also rank Short Tail Keyword well in it.

Let me explain to you what is this long-tail keyword and what is the short tail keyword. “TOP 10 best games apps in 2022” is your long-tail keyword. But if you write best games apps, then this is the short tail keyword.

But the short tail keyword also comes in the above keyword (TOP 10 best games apps in 2022). I mean to say, use a long-tail keyword, the short tail keyword will automatically rank.

2. Put the Keyword in the Title

According to the topic on which your article is on, you have to choose your title. And remember one thing, your title should be the keyword of your article. Never make such a mistake that your focus keyword is “How to write SEO Friendly blog post” and you are writing something else. So you write the same in the title of your post. You must have understood this, let's learn something more now

3. Use keywords in your first paragraph

You also have to pay attention to this thing that whenever you write an article, you must use the keyword in the first paragraph. Which will be helpful for SEO. If you are writing an article in which the name is "What is SEO", then you have to take it according to the keyword.

I mean, write “What is SEO” anywhere in the paragraph. But keep one thing in mind, your keyword should be written naturally. Do not write the keyword deliberately, again and again, it is against the guidelines of Google. This is also called Keyword Stuffing.

4. Use Image Alt Tag

No search engine can read the image. Rather, you have to tell the search engine that you have used the image and to whom the image is related. You have to enter the name of the image in the alt tag.

For example, if there is an image of SEO, then you have to write SEO in the alt tag. This lets the search engine know what the image is about. Use keywords in the alt tag, this will optimize your article.

You can also use a plugin named SEO Friendly Image. One more thing, always compress the image, it will reduce the page load time. Whenever someone searches for a Google image, your image can also appear there.

5. Use Heading and Subheading (H2 and H3 Tags)

Using Heading and Subheading is an SEO in itself. Always remember that the heading lets visitors know what is written inside.

By the way, Heading and Subheading mean which keyword you have to use in H2 and H3 tags. But remember that you do not write the same keyword exactly, bring some changes to it and then write it.

For example, take the example “how to write an article”, instead of this you can also write “how to write an article well”. You can also write it in the H2 tag, and you can also write it in H3.

6. Bold Important and Related Keywords

You can do this work even after writing the post. This is also a good way to write SEO-friendly topics. In this, you just need to bold and related keywords. This will make it easier for the search engine to focus on the keyword. (This does not mean that you will make everything bold). This method also makes it easy for visitors to blur the content in the article.

7. 1 to 2 Italic keywords

You should italicize some words meaning 1 to 2 focus keywords. This will also make a big difference in your article. Always remember one thing you do not write a word or sentence repeatedly for ranking, otherwise, the user will also find your article boring.

8. Outbound Link To High-Quality Sites

You must have seen that there are some very big sites. Sites whose CPC, Rank, Page-rank are also high. Link those sites to your page. If you are writing an article whose name is "What is blogging", then in this you can link the word 'Blogging' with any other site.

You can give a link to a URL with the word blogging, and that link can also be from the Wikipedia site. Whenever someone clicks on the blogging world, it will redirect to the WIKIPEDIA page.

There are many sites like Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, all of these are high-quality sites. With all these, you can link some words to your site. Google considers this very important.

9. Internal Links to Related Article

If you have seen the video, then you must have understood what I want to explain. Internal Links to Related Article This means, give a link to another post in the middle of your article.

If you have written about Quality article in your article, then you can give a link to the post “What is SEO” in the middle, that too will be your written post. This will happen whether the engagement of your site will remain. Visitors will keep reading other posts on your site. Bounce Rate will also remain intact.

This was some information about internal links.

10. Write High Quality Content

Use whatever SEO keywords you want, but if you do not write for the user, then there is no use.

I mean you should always write quality content means write relevant content, user readable content, complete content. You write in such a way that after reading, the user think that I have got what I want.

You should also pay attention to the article length. Write an article of 700 words only. When you write quality content, then forget about SEO, just everything should come from the heart, this is what Google likes.

11. Blog URL

Blog URL has a lot of importance to optimize the article for Search Engines. Give a URL that contains only keywords.

Your keyword is what is Google.

Take an example, www.example.com/what-is-google

This is the best example, the blog URL should be something like this.

Other URLs like www.example.com/What-is-google-google are also not special. www. example.comt/GooGLeWhat? 11%p This is also not the correct URL.

12. Use Meta Description

In Meta Description, you have to summarize the entire article. Whenever you publish the post, first of all, you should see the Meta Description once.

In this, you have to use those keywords which you have used in the heading, title description, subheading of your post. It tells Google what your post is written about. This also makes it easier for Google to search.

This description should be about 140-150 words. You should never copy Meta Description. Related keywords should always be used. On WordPress, write Meta Description in the middle of the head tag.

13. Pay attention to important keywords

Bold and Italic important and related keywords in the post. This is also a good way to write SEO-friendly blog posts/articles. This will help the search engine to focus on the keyword of your post.
