10 Basic SEO Tips for Writing Blog Posts that Search Engines Love

Post by Maclatunji » Tue Jul 25, 2017 4:17 pm

Use Blog Post SEO Basics
Ranking factors and SEO methods for blogging success are constantly changing! They are always different with each Google algorithm update too.

However, there are a few basic things you can do (and SHOULD always do!) to optimize your post for SEO:

1. Write for the readers, using a conversational tone.
2. Ensure your site is responsive (mobile-friendly).
3. Ensure your post contains both OBLs and IBLs (outbound links and inbound links).
4. Ensure your post is long (long-form content is best).
5. Ensure your post is valuable and informative (it needs to be the BEST article on the subject).
6. Ensure your post has a good readability score (use the Yoast plugin to get this score).
7. Ensure your post contains images that have a description and metadata added to them. (You can do this easily in WordPress.)
8. Ensure your post is written using proper English and correct grammar.
9. Ensure your post has a “green” indicator by Yoast’s plugin. (The Yoast plugin is available for free.)
10. Publish your post then ensure your post is indexed by Google PROPERLY (be sure to submit a sitemap to Google of your site so it gets crawled regularly by the search engine spiders).

These are the basics of SEO that all good bloggers know.
