Today we will discuss the top 10 tips for an SEO friendy Blog
1. Know what you want to achieve with the blog post before you write a blog
Think carefully before you start writing. What do you want your blog to contain information and what exactly do you want to tell your customers? Which media do you use to represent your story (think of text, images, videos, etc.) And what do you want your customers to do after they have read your blog? All questions that you first have to answer for yourself before you start writing a blog post.
2. How do you want your blog post structure to look like
Start by creating a clear structure. All posts start like any story with an introduction (introducing your subject), then a middle piece (in which you write the main story) and finally a conclusion (a summary of the most important ideas). Make a short summary for yourself what you want to write in these three sections. After this, writing can begin.
extra tip: Top 5-10 lists work very well (like these 10 tips for a SEO friendly blog), because they are clear and applicable for the readers.
3. Create paragraphs
Everyone uses paragraphs, but you have to be sure that a paragraph is useful. Not just starting a new sentence on a new line, because it looks good. There really needs to be a reason to start a new paragraph. Each paragraph must have its own idea or topic. For this you have to think of yourself what the main topic of the paragraph is. The idea must be to make the subject clear to your readers with one sentence. So if a topic has different sub-topics then you need more sentences and therefore more paragraphs to keep it organized.
4. Use titles
Titles make a page more structured. Titles are important for making your blog post readable, but also important for SEO. Titles help search engines like Google to understand long post and to share the right search terms for improving search engine ranking. To apply SEO as effectively as possible it is a good idea to align your titles with search terms that are actually searched for.
In addition to titles, you can also use subdivision titles, these subdivision titles help your reader to scan the page and make the structure of your post even clearer. Use your keyword in the subdivision titles, but not too much, because that makes your post unclear again.
5. Use signal words
Signal words help the reader to scan the subject from the paragraph. for example if you want to give three reasons to buy a product use signal words such as, firstly, secondly and finally. Also words such as; after all, and despite that, there are signals. Readers also know immediately when a conclusion is drawn by signal words like; so, or by this speech. Signal words are therefore important for the structure of your text.
6. Have your work read by another person
Having someone read your blog post for publication is important to see if the reader does understand the subject of the post. In addition, it is of course good to have write and sentence errors that you have overlooked by having them corrected.
7. Optimize the length of your text
Google likes long articles, but this does not take away the fact that too long texts might deter your readers. A good guideline for a post is between 300 words and a maximum of 700 words. In addition, another good guideline is to process the search terms on which you want to be found approximately one to two percent in your texts. So in an article of 400, four to eight times.
8. Link to old posts / articles
If you’ve ever written anything about the topic that your blog is about, do not forget to post a link to the old post. This is good for search engines and authority of the subject because link structure also helps for your ranking.
9. Add text regularly
Adding information regularly to your website indicates to Google that your website is alive. If a website is not active, the robots from Google will visit the website less often, making it less attractive for Google to process your page in the search results.
