BLOG SEO TIPS
Optimising a blog is one of the most rewarding types of SEO. Writing blog posts that are well-structured and SEO-friendly at the same time can be challenging, but the above guide helps to show you how.
The article highlights the importance of key words, structure, the use of paragraphs, headings and signal words, adding content regularly with external and internal links, and optimising that content (30o words at least).
A blog that has been SEO’d well and has good content can get a lot
of traffic from the search engines. As the natural mode of a blog is to continuously add new content, it can lead to great results.
Improve your writing skills
As with all writing, writing blog posts does require skill. To keep your reader interested, you should think about the structure of your piece and write appealing articles. Use headings, subheadings and clear paragraphs to help your readers grasp the core concept of a post . If people understand and like an article, they will be much more inclined to link, share and tweet about it – and that will increase your rankings.
This post provides tips on writing blog posts that are both readable AND SEO-friendly. These two goals should always go hand in hand.
