A few tips for successfully writing blogs begins with keyword and key phrase research. What keywords are important for your website? Are these keywords associated with potential clients or customers? In other words, what keywords are people using to find your type of business using the Internet and Search Engines like Google? Google offers a Free Tool called Keyword Planner to help understand the process. An active website needs connectivity with hundreds of keywords. Yes, I said hundreds. For example, Pain, Painful, Neck Pain, Back Pain, and Lower Back Pain are all different keywords/keyword phrases that should be of great interest for a Chiropractor or a Chiropractic Care Business. Each one has a value of importance in the search engines. The more relevant keywords and keyword phrases you feature within your website the more your website will show up in the search results.
Tips for Writing Blogs Correctly:
Okay, now you have a starting point for writing blogs. It will be necessary to select one keyword at a time when writing blogs. Use that keyword between 2% and 2.5% of all the words used within your blog. If your blog is 450 words long use your keyword 9 to 11 times. If you go over the 2.5% ceiling, Search Engines like Google consider it to be “keyword stuffing”, and they frown upon that practice. In fact, they will mark down your blog effort. Why hurt yourself unnecessarily? Best Practices suggest between 0.9% and 2.5% usage of your chosen keyword. I prefer 2% to 2.5%. I like the keyword to be used as close to the maximum limit as possible.
Additional best practice tips are to use the keyword or keyword phrase in the Blog Title, Meta Description, First Sentence, and Image Optimization. These best practices for writing blogs should be employed. All blogs should have a minimum of 300 total words. All blogs should have Optimized Images.
