Let me explain the points above for you to understand better.


1, Research Keywords: keywords are simply words, phrases or sentences people search on Google when they're looking for a solution to their problems.


To research Keywords, some people use tools but I do this on Google for Free.

  • Go to Google.

  • type the title or the article you want to write,

  • pick more titles from  Google related searches.

  • Include them in your Articles or new Articles.

See screenshot below

Now you are already sure you are answering a question someone is asking on a search engine.


2. Write good titles: Now you have gotten your keywords from point one, use it to write the title of your post. In blogger, this is tricky to do, the title of your blogger blog is not your h1, h1 is when you highlight the title Inside the post and select major heading.


Note:

  • you use only one h1 in your Blog Post, you can use many h2. See screenshot below

  • H1 tells the search engine your most important title, h2 second important ( headings), and it continues. This is what Google uses to rank your article.

  • Make sure all keywords are in the title but don't stuff. That's it should appear naturally.

See screenshot below Showing all the 'hs' in order.

3 Use correct grammar: Whatever language you are using to write, use the most common words for anyone to read and understand. Using higher grammatical terms will hinder your ranking. Avoid spelling errors.  Use good sentences. Some people use paid  tools to correct spelling and grammar errors, I use Google docs for free. Hahaha!


4, Write a Unique post:  The error many people make is to copy people's articles and publish on their website. If you do this, search engines will hardly index your post. They might even penalize you and your website.  The best rule is to type your own Articles with your own words, use your own images that have never been Published on the internet.


5, Write a good Intro: Proper introduction grasps the attention of the reader. It also tells if what the person is looking for shall be Discussed in the made Articles.

Include keywords in your intro. You can start by identifying a problem which is on your readers mind and then tell them how you are going to solve it.


6,Organize your post: Highlight main points using bullets and numbers, use paragraphs where necessary. You already know that some readers can land on your website and scan only key points then get everything about what they were looking for.


7, Add images and videos: Images with illustrations make readers easily understand the points you are making. It equally helps visually impered people to quickly understand your post. Google considers this. But you have to add an image tag.

How to add image tag(Alt)

 Image tag is image 'alt' it helps in ranking.

After inserting an image, write image title as seen on the screenshot below

Generally, images and videos make your post more beautiful and hence improve user experience.


8, Add internal/international links: when adding links, make sure it's a link that has something related to your main topic. Their link should also be full naturally. Also link your articles in some Post of your site that already ranking well on Google first page.


9, Write relevant information: When writing, make sure you cover everything related to what you are writing. That's a reader should not land on your page and go back to look at part of the info elsewhere.



10,Check competitors' posts: As we all know, many people are already writing about what you are writing. You can check their websites and do what is better than theirs.


11, Write search Describing. Search Description should carry some keywords and should be catchy to make people click on your Post. Search Description is what appears under your post title on a search engine. See screenshot believe.
