On-Page SEO Tips and Technical SEO Tips:
We just wanted to put together a super quick article that would show you a few additional on-page seo tips and technical seo tips.
- Use a good keyword research tool in order to find keywords that are high in volume, but low in competition and target these keywords.
- Put target keywords in the blog post slug or blog post URL. You won’t want to change your blog post url, because you will add both internal and external links to the blog post url.
- In addition to putting your target keyword or keywords in the blog post url, you will also want to use target keywords in the headings, tags, meta description, and blog post content.
- How often you use the target keyword throughout the post will vary, but you may want to use a keyword tool such as SurferSEo or Ahrefs in order to help you determine how often to use your target keywords in your blog post.
- Decide if you are educating or selling your audience in each blog post (some can do both). Ask yourself, am I writing a “how-to” post, a review post, a sales post, or just an informational post. Design your keyword strategy around whether you are educating, selling, or both. Include these target keywords and affiliate links throughout your blog post.
- Make sure your blog post has correct spelling and grammar. You may want to use a free tool or WordPress plugin to correct your spelling and grammar.
- Remember that you’re writing for Google first and your audience second. I know this sounds counter-productive, but if Google doesn’t read your content and organic drive traffic to it, your audience may never see it. Even if you have great content that your audience loves, you still want to make sure you hit the right notes for Google to drive organic traffic to that post. That’s why on=page SEO and technical SEO still matter, even if you’re a great writer.
- Your original post can be written just for the search engines if you’d like. Months down the road, once you see that it’s indexed and getting some traffic, you can go back and update the article and add a ton of content to it if you’d like. You don’t have to make every post perfect on the first try and you can always update the content once you see that it’s good enough to rank.
- Include the right affiliate disclosures and/or affiliate disclaimers and all other legal information that you feel your readers need to know.
- Add in your affiliate links and/or links to different website pages/posts that you feel are relevant (internal linking).
- Finally, if the article ranks and is doing well, you can add external links to that post through a variety of methods such as guest posting, link-building strategies, and more.
