8 Steps to Better Blogging and SEO

Follow these 8 blogging tips for better SEO ranking so your blog soars to the top of page one on  Google:

1. Keep track of your word count. A good blog should be between 300 – 500 words. Too short and you won’t have enough content, too long and not only will you lose your readers, but Google too! Seems we both have short attention spans!

2. Repeat your keywords or key phrase so they make up 1-4% of your content. This is really important for Google and other search engines to find you.  

3. Instead of repeating your key phase over and over making your content repetitive, hide your keywords behind a picture. After inserting your picture there’s a box at the bottom called: Title.  Add your keywords and title here.

4. To increase your website's ranking have at least 2 links going to your website. Make sure they go to different pages. For example my website has 5 pages (Home page, Portfolio, Staging FAQs, ect. so I link my posts to at least 2, but sometimes all 5 pages.

5. Use Bold and Underline relevant words – your key phrases and keywords. Again Google see this and it helps your ranking.

6. We all like catchy titles but they aren’t always the best for optimum SEO. You want to be geographically specific, concise and short with your keywords in the Title.

 

7. You want your content and title to complement each other. (i.e if my keywords are Staging Morris Plains, NJ with Before/After Photos” I want to reinforce and repeat “Staging Morris Plains, NJ throughout my blog. Keep it local and stay on topic for your readers and better SEO ranking.

 

8. Don’t forget Hyper-Local content. Write about your neighborhood’s happenings, events, restaurants and be specific so your target audience finds you!

 

Next week I’m doing a follow up blog on staging your posts to look their best, attract more readers, and keep your target audience’s attention!             Happy blogging!

You're right. Kristine's blog is one that is good to bookmark as a how-to-guide in terms of getting a lot of google juice for one's blog. This is a good one to reblog. I missed it, and so glad you chose this one.

Thanks!
