SEO optimization affects your Blog at 4 levels:
- On Page SEO
- On Site SEO
- Off-site SEO
- Social SEO
After all, there are two thing content and images are in your blog and these are the only factor for SEO responsibility.
Content level SEO:
As we know content is king for a Blog and your content can build real SEO for your Blog. To build search engine optimised content you need to do keyword research and plan to build content for those keywords.
I always plan for my content at 1st of the month and researching on the keyword to build content for those keywords. I am using tools like Google Keyword Planner and SEMRush to find such content.
The search engine searches the content based on keyword, so it plays the major role in site SEO. If you are ready with your content idea then start writing your blog article that is not for quality only it should target to keywords also.
And always add SEO details for the article like Meta title, Meta description, keywords by using WordPress plugin SEO by Yoast.
Image level SEO:
For image SEO, we need to maintain image title, image name, caption, image tag. To do image SEO, I am using SEO friendly image plugin to add image ALT tag and using “SMUSH.it” plugin to compress the size of an image.
When I was started my first blog, I was writing lots of articles and making a number of categories, this is not a good practice for blog writing, always use the minimum number of categories and you can use the subcategories to specify your articles.
Always review your old articles and try to make it more relevant with the subject line and categories, and build your interlink article and link the other post within the articles.
