October 8th, 2014

Writing awesome blog posts day in and day out can be a real challenge. What’s even more difficult is to make every blog post as SEO friendly as possible. Fortunately we have a formula that helps us build SEO friendly blog posts. We’re going to share this 5 step formula with you however it’s a formula you’ll need to build on. Think of it as we helping by pointing you in the right direction but how you make it to the finish line only depends on you. Let’s take a look at the formula.

1] Post Title: Picking a cool title for your blog post is a must these days but keywords are still very important. Your target keyword will allow search engines to find your article and that cannot be avoided. If you can build a title with the keyword in the beginning then it’s going to work wonders to improve your SEO quotient.

2] Keyword: Back in the days, SEO depended on keyword density in your article, more the better. But times have changed and search engines have become clever enough to indentify who’s gaming the system. You now need to focus on original content and if you’re writing around a certain keyword then the whole “How much keywords should I add” issue, will take care by itself.

3] ADD H1 tag to your subtitles: If you’ve noticed, some of the websites that make it to the top of the Search engine rankings will always have H1 tags for their subtitles. Well it doesn’t stop there; one needs to ensure that keywords need to be added to make it really effective. This gives Google spiders that crawl your page, an easier view to indentify the content and place it appropriately in the search ranking results. This takes planning since you need to take your title and the overall content into account while working on this.

4] Images: An image can say a thousand words. If you’re unable to put across a point or trying to make heavy content more readable, then images are going to be a life saver. Though images can add load to your website, optimizing them can reduce that impact. Also if the image alt tag has been correctly set along with a keyword, then you’re giving search engines an easier way to find you. Yes we know images are tough to get but we recommend this awesome online tool called Canva that will help you create awesome images in no time :-)

5] Content: If you’ve been hearing too much of this then we’re sorry to say it again but ‘Content is King’.  No matter how much of efforts you put in, it all boils down to this. Original and value add content is what makes it to the top of the search engines these days. Your blog post needs to be interesting and at the same time be informative. The latest trend in effective content delivery is ‘Story telling’. If you can put your point across in the form of a story then you have a blockbuster of a blog post that’s bound to get you good traffic. How can you come with great content over and over again? Read, research and ask questions around your field of interest and you will find your topics to write about.

We hope this formula comes handy while creating your SEO friendly blog posts. It’s going to be tough initially but we’re sure, practice will make you an expert :-)
