Writing a blog post is not that much difficult if you are writing about the topic you have knowledge and experience. But writing a good SEO friendly blog post requires a skill. Today we are going to understand how we can write SEO friendly blog post.

Before jumping directly into the question “How to write SEO friendly blog post?”, let’s understand why we should write SEO friendly article?.

Why we should write SEO friendly article?
Everyone wants to get high traffic to their blog and writing SEO friendly article will lead you to the high traffic blog. Writing SEO friendly article will help you to get your blog indexed in the search engine.

Let’s jump into the question How to write SEO friendly blog post?

The following SEO strategies will help you to write SEO friendly blog post:

Use Long-Tail Keywords

First, decide the keyword for your blog post like in my case for this article is “SEO friendly blog post”. Don’t use or concentrate on one word or two-words keyword, use three to four words as a keyword in your blog post.
The reason behind using a long tail keyword is people always search for the keyword with 3 to 4 words.

URL of the article ( blog post )

Your URL should be SEO friendly. Use your keyword in URL of the blog post so that search engines can easily find your blog post when someone searches for the topic about which you are writing in your blog post.

The decided long-tail keyword should come into the URL of your blog post to get your blog post indexed in search engine. Don’t include irrelevant words in URL of your blog post.

WordPress having Permalink Settings available to set by default URL of the blog post. I would suggest you set it Post name instead of Plain.

Title of the article

Title of the blog post plays a vital role while writing SEO friendly blog post.

How your Blog Post Title appears in search results:

Title of the blog post in SEO Friendly blog post
Title of the blog post in SEO Friendly blog post

Your keyword should come in your blog post title. Your blog post title should be catchy and readable. The title of the blog post is very important because after reading the title of your blog post in the search engine the reader decides whether he wants to read your blog post or not.

Think like a reader when you are writing the title of the blog post. Think that as a reader what titles or headlines you like. Do the research on your previously written blog titles that which blog post got high traffic.

Meta Description

The meta description is very important to get your blog post indexed in search engines. Use your keyword in the meta description. The content which you are placing in meta description should be present in your blog post. It will be better if the meta description content is present in the first paragraph or at the very start of the blog post.
The meta description should not be too long or too less. Google allows us to put a maximum of 320 characters in meta description extra characters get truncated by Google.

Meta description plays a vital role in driving traffic to your blog.

See how your meta description appears in search result:

Images used in a blog post should have alt text

The Images plays a very important role to get your blog traffic increased. Images are part of On-Page SEO. Search engines always look for the images in blog posts to get that blog post indexed in search results.
Use at least one image in your blog post. Make sure that you are adding alt text to images. It will be very helpful to get your blog post indexed if you use the keyword in the alt text of the image.

Use keyword throughout your post

The keyword about which you are writing a blog post should come in the blog post at least 3 to 4 four times. Don’t overuse it.

Long and Readable Post

Search engines give priority to long and readable content, so write the blog post in such a way that you explain the topic very well in at least 3 to 4 paragraphs. Your content should be readable. Again think as a reader of your blog at the time of writing the blog post.

Google loves the long content, 800 to 1000 words post.

The post you are reading now is long enough to understand How to Write SEO Friendly Blog Post. Another example of the long and readable post I have written on TechnoVans: Top 12 Blogging Tips for Beginners

Using internal links in your blog post will help you to keep the reader connected with your blog. Make sure that you give the related internal link. Don’t give an irrelevant link in your blog post.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that
    automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was
    hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates. https://Nicolitalia.com/

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    However think of if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could
    definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Excellent blog!

    While it’s helpful to include your keyword in your alt text, it’s also important to remember the original purpose of alt text to ensure that you are optimizing its use. This is the data used by screen readers to describe your images to the visually impaired. Picture having someone read your alt text to you with your eyes closed, do you picture the image?

    I love the visual examples you provided; I never understood what a meta description was before this. Also, in this age of images, a good picture always gains a click-through.

    I feel like I’m doing all of these things to make my posts SEO friendly but it still doesn’t seem to be resulting in any recognition from Google. Virtually all of my blog traffic comes from Pinterest so I’m not sure where I’m missing the SEO mark. It’s very frustrating.

    Meta descriptions are always a struggle for me. The character restrictions along with planting keywords is always tricky, but it’s important to play the game, and when you do it right, you definitely see results in your traffic.
