Original content: 

Your content should be original if you are looking for a better ranking on Google. Do not just copy and paste articles on your blog. This will not only destroy your reputation but also will hurt your ranking on Google.

Title:

Title reflects what your article is all about and this is the most important aspect to consider for SEO. Be sure to choose a suitable title for your article. Here are some tips you should keep in mind before deciding a title for your blog post.

  • Make sure the title is not more than 5-7 words and 65 characters.
  • Use words or phrases that you think readers will use the most to search for information relevant to your article. For example: An article about SEO may have titles like “SEO Tips” or “Tips for SEO“.
  • Use the primary keyword in your title. That is, if your article is about SEO, your title should have the word SEO in it. However, do not overdo it. Do not repeat the keyword more than once in the title.
  • Keep the title original and crisp.
  • Avoid using special characters in your title

Description:

Your content should have a description, summarizing the content. This attracts readers to your article.

The following tips can help you write appropriate descriptions for your articles:

  • Make sure that the description is relevant and interesting enough to invite visitors to read.
  • Description should not be more than three to four sentences and should have the primary keyword in it.
  • You can pick up sentences of your article in the description.
  • Does not include the company name or personal information in the course of the description and do not add the title in it.
  • Avoid using “all caps” or “special characters” in the description section.

Content is the king: 

Well, nothing can better work than having original content for your blog. Also, try to write articles that will be of some use to your readers.

If it is an informative article, keep the word limit to 500 to 600. write long articles is meaningless because users tend to have little patience to read a lot. Short and crisp write-up is way to go.

Studies suggest that Internet users have small attention span. 

Try to keep your write-up lucid and simple. Avoid using bombastic long and complicated sentences. Use the keywords in your articles at least 3 to 4 times.

Links:

By submitting articles to directories, you can put external links of the radiation to direct readers to your website. However, make sure you do not put more than one or two links in a single article.

As for the display in your business blog or personal blog is concerned, there is no need to post links separately.

Sharing and Polls: 

Polls and voting are a great way to popularize your article among readers. The reason behind this, users like to express and share their preferences with others. And your post will be the platform for them to do so.

Also sharing in social platform helps a lot and dealing with the comments that is the response is also a talent that must be enhanced to get better results.

Images and videos:

  1. Hi Apoorv,
    Thank you so much for this post. Achieve a top spot on SERP is the dream of every bloggers. So you are on right track.
    Title and description have a very important role in SEO as well as in readership. We have to use our primary keyword on both places and have to take extra care in choosing title. Because if it is not compelling, readers will not go further.
    Thank you so much bro.
    Hey, did you steal my theme? 😉 . Just kidding. This is the theme I am also using. I found out this post from Aha-Now. Keep blogging.

  2. Hi Apoorv,

    Informative post about SEO 🙂

    Yes, a blogger needs to take care of the basics, as you mentioned. However, with Google for ever changing, I wonder what really works any longer. That’s because so often we see posts rank very high, even without the use of any keyword or SEO, while there are others where we target one keyword, but something else gets ranked.

    So, though I agree with the basic SEO so that our posts show up in the searches, we need to just do a little and be more natural in our flow of words and use a lot of variations. I guess writing posts that help our readers is the best thing you can do for your blog, isn’t it?

    Thanks for sharing. Happy weekend 🙂

  3. Hi Apoorv,
    Titles, and description of the article is very important to bring visitor to our blog, if our content is not added any value to the reader then he will never come back to our blog for solutions, creating unique content is not possible for every article but we can add value to the content by showing our experiences.

    Thank you reminding the basic concepts once again.

  4. Hi Apporv, I am glad I could help you out with the editing part. I loved the point that internet users have smaller attention spam and they hardly read word to word. So creating interesting post is a must.

    Thanks for sharing these SEO tips. 🙂

  5. Nice SEO overview Apoorv.

    I agree that the chocie of topic is basically the foundation of any SEO strategy – or content strategy period. After that, choosing a compelling and SEO friendly title is some mad alchemy – part art part science – that seems to be hit or miss even for experts often enough.

    For me the big question has always been “how much should we focus on SEO”? In principle, good SEO should line up with excellent user experience, because users would presumably change search engines if their results were poor.

    Seems to be different in practice though, hence all the debating.

    My own approach is to do fundamental SEO really well and then give the rest of my energies to outstanding user experience. Curious to hear what everyone else here thinks.

    By thhe way – Neil Patel did a really amazing study of content length vs SEO value that you might find interesting: http://www.quicksprout.com/2014/03/31/how-long-should-each-blog-post-be-a-data-driven-answer/
