Blogging Content: On Page Blog SEO Tips to Help You Soar Above Your Competition
Blogging Content begins with the format …
When you first begin your online income blog, it's a good idea to get into the habit of creating your blogging content format to make the search engines happy. These blog SEO tips are designed to help you get off to a good start, because, after all, what's the sense of blogging if nobody's out there reading what you write?
That's why I'm a strong advocate of "posting on purpose for profit". To satisfy the search engines on Google, your content must be both relevant and popular.
Fortunately, if you've been following my strategy, you already have your team blogging system that will help to make it popular. And, the purpose of this post here is to help you learn how to make your blog post relevant to the search engines.
There's more to making your blogging content relevant than just plastering your keyword phrase through your content …
The blog SEO strategy begins with your title. Once you determine you keyword phase, (hopefully it's a phase that gets more than 50 searches per day and has low competition), it's mandatory to put this phrase in your title. It's best to put the phrase in the beginning of the title, with the first part of your title catering to the search engines, and the last part of your title designed to capture human emotion.
For example: "Blogging Content: On Page Blog SEO Tips to Help You Soar Above Your Competition" … notice that the first part is the keyword phase "blogging content" (a phrase I bought that gets 5400 searches per month), and the later part of the title is designed to appeal to the guy out there who is not sure which steps to take first and needs that helping hand that I'm providing in this article.
The next thing you must do is make sure your blogging content contains your keyword phrase in your headings …
Your title is only the beginning. Your blog will need to be formatted with three different types of headings that are seen by the search engines … "H1, H2 and H3". You can create these headings by highlighting the section you want to use as your heading, and then clicking the arrow under the paragraph tab at the top, and clicking on one of those headings.
Of course, good blogging content format dictates to have multiple headings through your post, with only a couple of sentences in each of your paragraphs. (This is to appeal to the average human eye that is more likely to stay on your blog and read if it appears as an "easy read".)
But for the purpose of the search engines, you should make sure your keyword phrase is contained in one of these of H1, H2 and H3 headings.
In addition to the headings, your keyword phrase should also be in the first sentence and last sentence of your blogging content.
Relevant blogging content also has keyword density of 1-2% of your content …
How can you tell that? The easy way is to use the SEOpressor plugin tool that will come with your blogging system. The plugin will give you a "checklist" to make sure you've remembered everything you need for on page blogging content SEO. You should not have your keyword phrase in more than 5% of your blogging content.
Images or pictures of some kind are very important for the human eye. But not only that, it's also important for the search engines to "see" the images.
After you load an image, when you click the "html" tab to view your codes, you will notice your image contacts a code like "alt =". When your keyword phrase is inserted in that spot, it tells the search engines that your blogging content is relevant.
The length of your blogging content should be about 500-700 words …
This is the length advocated by gurus who post on purpose for profit. At least 500 words, because you will also be posting similar versions of this post in article directories for extra SEO boost, and most directories will not take anything less than 500 words.
And, preferably, less than 700 words, because the whole point of your article is to get people to read to the end where you place your "grand finale" – the link to your "money page".
