FULLY OPTIMIZE BLOG POST FOR SEO
Hello, so today we will be reviewing how you can fully optimize blog post for SEO . Every blogger’s dream is to have a blog with a very great SEO right?, but achieving that dream isn’t a day job.
So in this article, I’ll be focusing on how you can fully optimize blog post for seo which practically increases your chances of ranking on google’s first page. Without wasting much of your limited time, let’s get started.
NB; THIS IS HOW I OPTIMIZE MY OWN POSTS AND MY POSTS ARE DOING WELL ON SEARCH ENGINES. THEREFORE THERE MIGHT BE OBJECTIONS WHICH I FULLY UNDERSTAND. WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT WAYS OF DOING THINGS RIGHT.
1. Make your Keyword visible in the post title
First of all, you’ve to make your focus keyword, that is, the keyword that you’re trying to rank for visible in the post title. Lets say for example, your focus keyword is create a blog, you’ve to insert that keyword and tweak it such that it fits in the title.
You can just make the title of the post to be how to create a blog without any problem, the focus keyword is very visible in the title and it helps the ON PAGE SEO.
Also when you’re putting the keyword in the title, make sure it appears quickly, simply make your title short and gives detailed information on your post
2. Inserting your Keyword in the slug
Although, many think that this has no effect in boosting the on page seo for a blog post, I highly recommend it.
Slug is simply the URL of the post (the link to the blog post)
Using the above example on the focus keyword, “create a blog” and the title of the post which is how to create a blog without any problems, you can’t possibly think that you should leave the slug the way it is, leaving the full title as the slug?.
It’s not okay for me if you simply change your slug to https:// ygdhgdg.com/create-a-blog/ it is very okay and will of course improve your chances of ranking.
3. Inserting your keyword in image alt
Yes!!!, this is another recommended thing by seo experts like NEIL PATEL
Ryan Robinson and the likes. Inserting your focus keyword in your Image alt attribute increases the chances of your blog post appearing on google or at least, the images you used on the post might be the first to appear when the keyword is searched on google.

4. Using your keywords frequently in your content
If you’re a frequent reader and follower of my blog posts, you should understand this point better. There is something we call keyword density and it means the number of times the focus keywords appear in the content.
If you check all my posts, you’ll notice that sometimes i just put my focus keyword anywhere in the content or i write a sentence and then end it with the focus keyword such that it makes sense.
I am not just doing that to play around with my keyword, it’s very important, keyword density helps a lot in post optimization
5. Using Keyword as heading and embolden it
When starting my post, the first thing i do is making my keyword a heading, just like i did at the beginning of this post.
Also, i always bold my keyword anytime i use it in the content. This is what everyone who understands ON PAGE SEO does, it strengthens the keyword and gives Google more reason to crawl it.
As a matter of fact, many experts do not only use it in one subheading, but use it in many of their subheadings, they actually know what they are doing.
6. Inserting Keyword Meta description
Meta description is the little description that appears on google which gives a liitle description on what your post is about. So you should insert your focus keyword in the meta description, it is another important step that pro bloggers take to increase their on page seo.
Oh, I’m so sorry that i couldn’t give a further and better explanation than this, I’m a little bit rusted today, i just felt like giving you guys this article. Thank you!!!.
