And, for that, it’s necessary to get Google Adsense Approval ( which is a very hard thing for some bloggers). So, Let’s make this easy in 5 Ultimate Steps-


How to get Google Adsense approval

Research

First, step before writing quality content is to do research. There are three type of searches you should do-

Audience- Understand your audience. Which are the arising problems of the audience that you can solve.

Get these ideas from quora ( what questions audience is asking), you tube, Facebook, communities etc.

Keyword Research- Find target keywords ( what user is searching) through keyword research.

Through audience research you know your topic, so now type that into SEMrush Keyword Magic Tool (value for money tool).

Keyword Magic Tool

Using the right keywords in your content helps crawler to know what your content is about and makes it easy for you to rank on top of Google.

Choose Keywords- Long-tail keywords, high volume, less competition, high CPC and is still trending.

For e.g after a keyword research we pick a keyword “How to boost your immune system fast “, boost immune system with food etc.

Competitve Research- See what your competitors had written on that topic. See target keywords, take content ideas, and find ‘how they are ranking on top?’.


Traffic

If there is less traffic on your website then it’s hard to get Google Ad sense approval. So , how to boost traffic on your website.

Content writing

Now, it’s the time to write an ultimate blog post.

  • Write unique, simple, deep, and high-quality content.
  • Write content for the audience not only for search engines. ( provide value by solving their problems).
  • Plzz don’t copy/paste content ( mistake everyone does once), otherwise, your site will get banned instantly.
  • Include an introduction and conclusion in your content.
  • Use power words and tell your own experience.

Note: For getting an adsense approval make sure you have written at least 20 articles with at least 1000 words content length.

Titles- Write catchy titles. Use power, questionable and emotional words like ( ultimate, hacks, top 10, best, how to etc.).

Every beginner makes the same mistakes and has the same story – ” I don’t know what is SEO, keyword research, quality content, I was just writing like fools and publishing”.

So, let’s change this story and hack blogging now.

Your story after reading this article- “ Now I know about seo, content, research and the dumb mistakes I was making, my ranking boosts up after using these blogging tips”.

Enjoy the blogging journey!!!

Blogging is my passion meme

Start a blog

If you haven’t start a blog then let’s first setup your blog in 5 minutes.

See- How to start a blog from scratch

Niche

Choose a niche in which you have experience and want to learn about it. Only one niche per site. It can be related to health, travel, food, blogging, fashion, etc.

Niche= Profitable+Passionate ( apply this formula and choose your niche).


Blogging mistakes #1

Before starting to write a blog I was not sure about my niche ( I also don’t know what is a niche?). I just write about health, study, life, etc and I keep on writing up to 9 months.

When someone asks “What is your niche?”- I just reply “poly niche”. ( means many niches in one website).


Domain

Choose a domain name related to your niche. Like if my niche is related to blogging then my domain name is hackblogging.com

Choosing a short domain name with simple words helps people to memorize it easily. People get an idea of what your site is about. Don’t overthink just choose.

Don’t start with Free domain. Buy domain now from Siteground ( 70% off).


Blogging mistakes #2

One year before I choose a domain name- smartway2live.com. Now, it’s good but it’s not easily memorable.

When I tell someone about this domain name to search in Google, I have to specify that its “2” not “to” and they forget it easily after 1 hour.

Then again I decided to start a new website ( on which you are reading this article). I buy a domain name “rushblogs.com”.

Now, this name is short but doesn’t have any meaning, so I decided to change this name to hackblogging.com ( Hack now)


Hosting and Platform

Choose cheap and reliable web hosting. Choose Siteground hosting. But Why?

It’s cheap and your site speed increases by 70% ( a massive change) because siteground provides many premium features for FREE.

Siteground hosting plans

Click on this special link to get 70% off on Siteground Hosting

I suggest you to choose WordPress platform. But Why?

Includes many features and maintains good flow of traffic ( user-friendly)

If you first only want to take the experience or not want to invest money then you can start writing blogs for free with medium.com, wordpress.com, blogger.com, etc.

But, if you are really serious then invest some money.


Blogging Mistakes #3

I didn’t buy hosting from a good hosting provider ( no features and no SSL certificate) ( my 3rd big mistake). Then after few months, I buy Siteground hosting and now I am enjoying it.

Congrats, now you are ready to write a blog post; but wait have you customized your blog post and do you know how to write a ultimate blog post.

So, let’s go more deep.


Blogging Tips #1 Blog Theme

Choosing the right theme and designing your website is the first step before you publish any post.

Why I recommend to buy a premium theme

  • Premium themes are mobile-friendly.
  • Good SEO optimization.
  • Proper user interface.
  • Boost site speed.
  • The site looks great when you design it.
  • Great customer support

The first step to make site mobile friendly is the website architecture and with free themes, you can’t have a good website architecture.

Make some budget to buy a theme and make your websitve responsive.

If you really want value for money theme than I suggest you to choose Elegant themes. Why this?

It is becuase of its features and low cost.

In less investment you get Divi theme, divi builder, monarch, bloom and many other features for unlimited websites.

Some alternatives of Elegant themes are- Thrive themes, Generate Press and Astra Pro.

Get 20% instant discount on Divi


Blogging mistakes #4

What big mistake I did was choosing a free theme; my site got hacked easily, not mobile friendly, no features and site speed was low.

Then after searching and making a small budget I decided to buy a premium theme ( Elegant ) and now I can design it in my way.

I am enjoying premium theme. What about you? Have you made a decision?


Blogging Tips #2 Research

The first and important step before writing a blog post is research.

Understand your Audience

Firstly understand your audience. It means what audience is looking for in your niche. Know the audience problems.

If your content can solve the arising audience problems then your content is going to boom.

So, to understand your audience see what question they are asking on quora, you tube and other social platforms, communities etc.

Searcher’s

Keyword Research

When you understand your audience, now you know about what topics to write about but not right keywords.

For doing deep keyword analytics , I suggest you to use SEMrush Keyword Magic Tool.

Why Keyword Research is necessary- Right keywords shape your content and tell search engine crawler what your content is about.

When any user types the target keyword ( your main keyword) in search engine (query) , Google shows the SERPs related to that keyword.

How to choose right keywords?

  • Choose average volume keywords ( 100-400)
  • Low-competition
  • Still trending or not.
  • Target Long-tail Keywords more.

From there look what your competitors had written ( competitive research); how they have written, content length, and what is unique in their content.

Choose 3-4 keywords in which one is your focus keywords ( primary main keyword).

Blogging Mistakes #5

I think every newbie makes this mistake of not doing research and obviously I was not rare.

I just keep on writing the content without understanding my audience, without doing any research just keep on writing like fools.

And one interesting thing is that; ‘I wander why my blog posts are not ranking’.

So, don’t make this dumb mistake and research before your write.

Congrats, now you are ready to write a ultimate blog post. Appreciate yourself.

Blogging Tips #3 Content writing

Keep this thing in your mind that “Content is king”. So, Let’s hack content writing.

Write unique, simple, deep and high-quality content. Don’t write content for search engine or yourself write for audience.

Title

Give some time for writing titles. If you have no idea then you can use site title generator.

Write catchy titles. Use power emotional and questionable words like- hacks, ultimate, dumb, quick, best, top 10, how to etc.

Introduction

  • Start with a question.
  • Connect emotionally with the audience (humor is best). Use power words.
  • Tell a fact or write a quote.
  • Don’t waste too much time on thinking just give a simple start.

Ultimate Main body Content hacks

  • Your content length should be at least 1500 words ( valuable information).
  • Solve the audience problem through your content. ( provide value)
  • Include ‘you’ and ‘I’ words more.
  • Don’t forget to tell the audience about your experience. ( Connection is important).
  • Give facts, examples, and statistics.
  • Include images, videos, and infographics. ( don’t cross limit)
  • Follow simple AIDA formula
  • Attention- The first step is to grab the attention of the user. Attract the right customers
  • Interest- Create interest.
  • Desire- Solve audience problem. Connect with them.
  • Action- Force them to take action ( buy, comment, etc.). Include Call to Action words.
Socail shares with word count

Conclusion

Don’t get confuse with the word conclusion; it’s not the end of the article.

  • Write a short conclusion.
  • Give your opinion.
  • Include infographic in your conclusion.
  • End conclusion with a question or call to action.

Keep your content fresh. I request you to not copy/paste content ( mistake every newbie makes once) otherwise your site will get banned with few days ( Google is smarter than you). Plagiarism should not be more than 5%

So, this was the whole structure of content writing.

Averages shares by content type

Blogging Mistakes #6

Now, the biggest mistake while writing a content was that I was writing for myself not for audience.

As, a newbie I was not aware of the content length and keep my content as concise as possible ( max 1000 words).

No structure of content was there. No catchy titles, no introduction and there was no conclusion ( only small body content).

Also at first I didn’t include any heading and subheading in my content.

I was not aware what power words are, which type of content audience wants, just keep on writing like fools.

So, don’t make these mistakes and write valuable and relevant content.

Congrats, you have written an awesome blog post but wait it’s not ready to be published.


Blogging Tips #4 SEO

What is SEO? SEO stand for Search Engine Optimization. It is a process of bringing quality and quantity traffic to your website and rank in organic search page results.

Do the basic On-Page SEO

On-Page SEO
  • Title- Include focus keyword at the beginning of Title. Include power words and numbers in your title. (max 60 characters).

Link Building ( off Page SEO)

Getting quality do follow backlinks is necessary to boost traffic, improve domain and page authority and build connections.

But don’t make a mistake of focusing on link building in the start. Focus on producing high-quality content. (because you will get backlinks only if your site has traffic, and high DA)

Minimum articles limit to start link building is 25. It means when you published 25-50 articles on your site, it is the best time to start link building. Some hacks are-

  • Write high-quality content.
  • Guest Blogging- Build a connection with other bloggers in your niche.
  • Skyscraper technique.
  • Comment on your competitor’s blog posts.

Blogging mistakes #7

In the starting no one knows what SEO is ? SEO is very important for ranking higher on SERPs.

What I did was just write one post, then next , then next…. Keep on publishing the post but not doing SEO on it.

Good news was that I have installed SEO plugin but bad news was that I don’t know how to use it.

I was just wondering- What is this focus keyword, alt text, URLs, meta description…..And the funny thing is that “I never external link to any website” ( a very big mistake)( I think why I add another site name on my website).

I came to know after completing a online SEO course. But don’t worry for you it’s FREE- SEO Ultimate Guide 2020.


Blogging tips #5 E-mail list

Now, building an e-mail list is an important step towards growing your brand or you can say building trust and connection with people.

Without a e-mail list there is no meaning of monetization

Keep in mind that 1 e-mail subscriber= $1

  • Lead magnet- Attract audience. Give e-books, pdfs, webinars, or courses for FREE.
  • E-mail opt-in- Build an e-mail opt-in. So, that people can give their e-mail address to you and take the material ( lead magnet). Build an exit popup.
  • Send e-mails- Now, send e-mails to the subscribers related to your new posts, products, or any new update. Build campaigns. The best day for conversions is Saturday.
  • Top e-mail marketing tools – AWeber, ConvertKit, Drip, Thrive Leads, and Mailchimp.

Blogging Mistakes #8

In, starting what I did was just open my account with Mailchimp and put a small opt-in on the side of the page ( where people can’t see).

But when I build a pop-up and create a lead magnet ( a free e-book), my e-mail list start growing.

As a beginner it’s normal for everyone. No, one knows about e-mail list building.

But it’s the most important part to boost your traffic, earn money, build trust and connection with people.


Blogging tips #6 Monetization

Hey, now it’s the time to earn some money from blogs. Because for many the last main goal of blogging is money.

Make Money Blogging

  • When traffic starts coming join a premium ad network. Write sponsored posts if you love and have time to write.
  • Affiliate marketing- The main earning source for many bloggers ( including me). Join Affiliate network, find and promote products, track sales, and earn a commission.
  • Products– Sell e-books, online courses, Softwares, and professional services. You can also sell physical products.
  • Conferences- Don’t miss any interviews or conferences. Meet and speak in front of people. Build trust and grow your network.
  • Scaling and optimizing– Track everything, build testimonials, and go a level up every day.
Bloggers earning sources

Blogging Mistakes #9

In the starting for few months my site traffic was very low and I was not aware of any type of monetization.

Good news- I was so happy that I got Google Adsense approval but again a bad news- I made only $1 in two weeks.

So, Google Adsense is just a motivation for beginners but not the primary way of monetization.

What i recommend is don’t fill your whole site and pages with ads ( bad user interface).

Then I came to know about affiliate marketing and it’s working , then my real earning starts.

Money Blogging is a broad topic. There are many ways you can make money out there, its all about exploring.


Blogging Tips #7 Content Promotion

Okay, now you have written high -quality content, done SEO and published it. But “How will people know?” about your new post.

Google takes social signals as a important ranking factor.

Now, here comes the word Content Promotion. How to promote-

  • Facebook– Make a Facebook page and group. Post daily on your page. Use memes and run ads. ( invest some money and get quality traffic). Join other groups and make a connection with them.
  • Quora- Most of the traffic comes from Facebook and Quora. Answer deeply at least 1-2 questions daily ( make it a habit) and provide links to your website.
  • Pinterest– Many Bloggers drive massive traffic from Pinterest ( it’s like a search engine). Create different boards and make a habit of pinning at least 1 pin a day.
  • Youtube- Now, people loving watching videos rather than reading articles, so you can make a channel on youtube; post quality videos and drive traffic to your website.
  • E-mail- Send e-mail to all your subscribers related to your content. You can also prefer to send an outreach e-mail ( e-mail to build backlinks).
  • Instagram- Visual world. Add Instagram story daily. Use IGTV. Add great visuals Instagram posts ( don’t forget to include hashtags).
  • Linked In- Post on Linked In, meet with people, and create your own group. Create a great profile.

There are many other social platforms out there. Don’t think to be everywhere and use all platforms at the same time.

Master one and then next. Find that 20 % platforms that can give you 80% results.


Blogging Mistakes #10

In starting I just use Quora platform but didn’t know how to use it to drive traffic.

My questions get deleted by Quora Moderation ( face many issues in starting) but with time I learned it.

I also made a facebook page, instagram and pinterest profile ( but no activity on these platforms) that was my big mistake.

So, now my main focus is on facebook, quora and Pinterest for content promotion.

See, use a simple strategy ‘write less and promote more’.


Blogging Tips #8 Images, videos, and infographics

  • Use 5-6 images in your post.
  • Using more than that can decrease your page loading time and impact ranking.
  • Include images with faces.
  • Include meme images.
  • Include screenshots and diagrams.
  • Don’t forget to include the featured image.
  • Include a video if you want ( it’s best to include your own youtube video). ( decreases bounce rate)
  • Make it a habit to include an infographic in a post ( increase link building and 3X sharing). Make Infographic conclusion
  • Use Canva to build charts and high-quality images.
  • Use Visme, Venngage to build high-quality infographics.
  • Download free photos from Pixabay, Shutterstock, etc.

Blogging mistake #11

When I started blogging , my some post were without images. And what I do was just copy the images from Google and use it in the post.

Then I think “What about Copyright”. After that, I started using the Canva tool to build my own images and use free images from pixabay.

Also I didn’t write any alt text and not include any feature images.

What about infographics? In beginning I didn’t know “what infographic is?”, but now I had made a habit of making one infographic per post.


Blogging Tips #9 Tools and plugins

Ultimate Tools that I use are-

  • SEMrush- The All in One SEO Suite. Provide a deep analysis of keywords, competitors, SEO, and a great site audit tool.
  • Grammarly It is the best Free tool I like. Use it and correct your grammar and spelling mistakes.
  • Keyword Density checker Check competitor’s posts keyword density.
  • Canva– I use this tool to built high-quality images, charts, and infographics.
  • Plagiarism Checker Before publishing my post I check if my content is unique or not.
  • Check your readability with the readability tool.

Plugins that I use-

Blogging Mistakes # 12


When I started blogging I don’t know about some of these tools and plugins ( but don’t know how to use them).

I use to call my friend and ask him to read my content and tell any spelling and grammar mistakes ( I was not aware of grammarly tool)

When I started tracking my competitors with the SEMrush tool, use Canva to build images and Grammarly to check spelling and grammar mistakes, my traffic boosts up.

And obviously theme builder and SEO plugin has a large impact on my site.

I was just using the free theme and a SEO plugin which I don’t know how to use.


Blogging Tips # 10 Consistency

Consistency is the most important factor. Publish high-quality blog posts consistently.

Set different dates- publishing date, promotion day, writing day etc.

Making a calendar or time table helps you; to be focused and consistent.

If you make any task a goal and visualize it then no one can stop you to achieve that.

Don’t multitask, make a schedule, set small goals daily and take breaks.

Blogging Mistakes # 13

What mistake I made was, I just keep on writing the posts and I wrote about 35 posts in a month.( advance work).

The price that I pay for this was that after a month there was back and neck pain.

But what if I only write 4-5 articles every month, optimizing them and publishing.( giving time to every article).

And, the last big mistake that the blogger makes is – losing patience. But I didn’t make this mistake and hope you also.

When beginner bloggers didn’t get the result they leave or switch to a different niche. But here’s the fact, that they can never succeed in any field.

If you want success in any field then consistency and patience are the most important factors.

Don’t work hard, work smart.


Bonus Tips on Blogging

  • Set up Google Analytics from starting
  • Set up Google Alerts.
  • Before publishing read yourself the whole blog post ( keep yourself in audience shoes).
  • Know Your ‘Why?’ ( purpose). A great Why can be like this-

Keyword Research

Keyword Research is the first and important step before starting to write a blog post. Targeting or using main keywords in your blog post tells the search engine crawler what your content is about.

  • Understand your audience. What your audience is looking for? Understand this through understanding searchers’ intent.
  • Don’t only focus on the keywords ( query) the user types in the search engine but also their intentions.
  • Explore your niche and find topics.
  • Take an idea of the topics and keywords through question and answer platforms, google related searches, and tools.
  • Search keywords in the Keyword Analytics tool. Do deep analysis with the SEMrush Keyword Magic Tool. Choose 3-4 keywords from keyword suggestions in which one is your focus keyword.
  • Which keywords to choose?- Average Volume (100-400), low competition, long-tail keywords, trend ( the keyword is still in trending or not).

Competitive Research

  • Look, which keywords your competitors are using.
  • Analyze their blog post and take content ideas.
  • Look how they have written their titles, meta description, introduction, and conclusion.

Catchy Title

When the user types a query in the search engine, What is the first thing the user sees in SERPs to click on a blog post. The answer is simple- Title.

It is the same as you read the whole news in the newspaper if you find the title engaging. So, what are catchy titles?

Power of your words in the title decide that your title is engaging or not. So, now the question is how to write engaging titles and increase title readability?

So, Lets see through a example. Have you noticed my title. “How to write a blog post fast that works-Ultimate Guide 2020

Engaging Titles

How to, fast, ultimate guide, 2020 are some of the power words I used to make this title engaging. Now, let’s see what the title readability ( through Rank Math SEO plugin) says about this title.

Title Readability

Title Readability

See, What Rank Math SEO plugin is telling that headlines with strong emotional sentiment, power words and a number tend to get more clicks.

  • Positive and negative sentiment words- excellent, fun, enjoy, fast, slow, fantastic, powerful, afraid, suffer, failure ugly, etc.
  • Power words- Ultimate, ultra, amazing, incredible, awesome, top, best, etc.
  • Numbers- Top 10, 20 hacks, 2020, 5 steps etc.

What title readability says when I not include words and numbers in my title?

Title Readability factors.

Some examples of engaging headlines are-

Ultimate hacks to write a catchy headline are-

  • Put yourself into the shoes of the audience. Focus on what the user needs. What problem you are solving of the reader through your headline?
  • Use emotional words. Make an emotional connection with the reader.
  • You can also use site title generator to generate engaging headlines.
  • Write clear, concise, and simple headlines.
  • Your content should meet the exception that your headline generated in the mind of the reader. For e.g If you have a headline “Top 10 ways to money blogging” and in the content, you are telling how to start a blog. ( don’t do that).
  • Long headlines tend to get more social shares. Make sure your title doesn’t exceed 60 characters.

Introduction

Now comes the second most important thing to give an idea about your main content to your audience is introduction.

What happen if ” Audience clicks on the title and bounces off in few seconds”. It will increase your bounce rate which will give a negative impact to google search engine.

Why the audience bounces off? It is because of the introduction you have written ( you have not provide a good overview of your content).

Master solid introduction

  • Quote or humor– People love quotes and humor. If you make the audience laugh, then that will be the best introduction for your blog post ( emotional connection).
  • Curiosity– Make your audience curious by telling them “how your content is different from others?”. Why should they read your article?. Write about, ‘which problem of the audience you are solving through your content’.
  • Tell them, “What is their loss if they didn’t read the article” ( loss aversion).
  • Questions- Why people easily get engaged through questions? It is because questions make them curious ( to know the answer), questions give direction, and a good overview of your post.
  • Facts- You can also start your blog post by telling them a fact. People love facts, researches, and examples.
  • Also, you can write your own experience ( to gain the trust of people).
  • Like you use the power, emotional and questionable words in the title use these words in your introduction also.
how to write introduction

Congrats, now your audience has reached to the main body content.

Main Body Content

Now comes the main body content in which you explain deeply about your topic. So, ‘How to write main body content so that people remain engaged?’ What is the right content length?

So, Let’s explore the main body content. Don’t forget the small quote “Content is King”.

Value

Create a unique, simple, valuable,deep and high-quality content. What does it mean?

It means solving the main problem of the audience through providing correct depth information.

Your content length should be at least 1500 words to compete with your competitors. Now don’t provide invaluable information to reach that limit.

Just explain everything in deep so that no questions come in the reader’s mind.

Your content should be easily understable to the reader, if the reader finds difficulty in reading your content then the user will bounce back from your blog post ( not good in terms of ranking). So, keep your content simple.

Fresh content– Keep updating your old posts. Google ranks only the content which is fresh.

What about unique content? Don’t copy-paste the content. Search Engine crawler is smarter than you. If the crawler finds plagiarized content more than 5% then your site will get banned instantly.

Social shares relation with word count

Ultimate Hacks to create a High-quality content

Priority

Your first priority should be your audience. “How your content is helping the user?”. What your content is teaching the user? Create content for the user not only for the search engine.

Power words

Use power words in your content to keep your audience engaged. The two most powerful words for the content are “you” and “I”.

“You”- You means you. This word send signals to the reader that the writer is talking about them. ( not any 3rd person).

“I”- When I use the word “I”, it means I am sharing my experience with the audience. Telling your own experience in the content helps the reader to trust your information and keep them engaged.

Images and Info graphics

Use images and infographics in your content. “How many images you should use?”

See, It depends on the content length. But I suggest you to use 4-6 images in your content. Don’t fill your content with images ( if not image blog).

Using too many images get up to 20% less read. Using too many images decreases your page speed which is not a good signal to the search engine and also frustrates the user.

How I use infographics? Generally, I make an infographic conclusion. It means providing a summary of the whole blog post by making infographics. Write catchy and less text, use charts, and designs.

Infographics can be a excellent source to drive traffic to your website because many other sites use infographics as anchors. ( provide backlink by using your inforgraphic which directs to your website).

Don’t use more than 2 you tube videos in your content. ( it can be great if you use your own you tube videos).

Facts

  • As I said above people love facts. Tell people facts and researches. Give examples for better understanding.
  • Prove them using charts, images, videos, and graphs.
  • Tell your own experience.

Paragraph Length

Don’t include more than 4-5 sentences in your content. Writing long paragraphs decreases content readability. Use table of content to break down-text. Include bullet lists.

Content Readability

Content Readability factors

So, the last tip is; Use simple words and a more active voice in your content.

Master On-Page SEO

On-Page SEO mind map

If you are only writing quality content but not doing SEO on it, then search engine crawler will find it difficult to rank your blog post on the top of SERPs ( Search Engine result pages).

What is SEO? SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It is the process of growing organic traffic on your site by appearing in the organic search results.

What is On-Page SEO– The actions that are performed on the page or you can say in your blog post to boost traffic. In simple language, it means optimizing your web pages ( content, source code).

To perform all these tasks and to measure your SEO score I recommend you to use Rank Math SEO plugin.

Title

  • Use your focus keyword at the beginning of the SEO title.
  • Write unique and catchy titles. Use power, number, and questionable words.
  • Title length should not exceed more than 60 characters.

Meta Description

Meta Description means giving an overview of your blog post in few words.

The second thing that appears on SERPs after titles, is your meta description. After reading titles audience read your meta description ( to decide whether to click on the page or not).

  • Like titles make your meta description engaging.
  • Ask questions, use a call to action words, and give a great overview.
  • Meta description length should not be more than 160 characters.
  • Use your focus keyword in the meta description. What I do sometimes is copy and paste all my subheadings into meta description ( so that all keywords get covered in the description).
Keyword Optimization
Keyword Optimization

Alt text

  • Crawler recognize the images through there alt text ( purpose of the image). The images that you see in the search engine appears through the matching of the query with the alt text.
  • Don’t write long alternative text ( maximum 5-6 words).
  • Use your focus keyword in the alt text.

Subheads

  • Use subheadings to organize your content.
  • Priority of subheadings are H1>H2>H3>H4>H5>H6.
  • Use only one <H1> tag ( title).
  • Use your focus keyword in the subheadings.

URL

  • URL is what appears between title and meta description.
  • Keep your URL short. ( max 75 characters).
  • I recommend you to only write your focus keyword in the URL.

Keyword Density

There is no ideal keyword density but don’t overoptimize your keyword.

Keep the keyword density natural. Like if your content is of 2000 word length the use your focus keyword at least 10 times in your content. Also use your secondary keywords.
