How To Write a Blog Post: 5 simple tricks
Selection of keyword is the most tricky part for blog-post writing. Any wrong selection of keyword may give you negative impact on your SEO. Keywords can be considered in two categories. One is the main keyword and another one is supporting keyword.
Main keywords are those which attract maximum organic traffic and directly related to your overall blogging niche. So it should be carefully selected and blog post for such main keyword must be written with proper care and in detailed content is expected.
Supporting keywords are those which are related to main keywords, passing link juice to the page with main keywords. Pages with such supporting keywords generally attract less organic traffic but help the ranking of main keywords. I normally keep the content size of pages with such supporting keyword less as compared with pages with the main keyword.
SEO Title & meta description:
You can use SEO title different from the normal headline of the blog post. Sometimes you want to keep blog post title simple but for getting higher ranking in SERPs you may need to change the title to make it more SEO friendly.
Meta description is also an important aspect of blog-post because it helps SEs to know more about the content. Not only that when it comes in SERPs then meta description help visitors to know more about the content and it leads more traffic towards your blog.

What thousand words can not say that can say with a single image. Not only that image can draw potential visitor’s attention within a fraction of a second.
You may even get decent traffic from Google’s image search results. But you need to make your images SEO friendly. Adding an image title and an alt text is very very important to make your blog post SEO friendly.
