how to use keywords

Optimize Title

Title optimization has the main role in bringing the quality organic traffic. It all depends on how you are making your keywords clickable.

For title optimization I follow a few points which make me bring a quality traffic from Google in a good amount.

I insert

  • Numbers (1,2,3,4,)
  • Power Words (Best, Top, Effortless)
  • Short But Meaningful Title (50 – 60 Char)

To clarify you in a better let me share and example with you.

Example: Top 10 Effortless Ways To Lose Weight.

This types of titles appear in the SERP has a more chance of getting clicks.

Optimize Meta Description

After the title tag meta description also plays a very effective role in content optimization.

It is after reading the title there is a chance that reader might have a look at the meta tag too.

Suppose they find even meta tag attractive there is 99% chance that they will jump to your article for sure even if it is not available on the top 3 postions.

Internal Linking

The role of internal linking is amazing, as per my experience I have found that internal linking has the power to rank the whole website very effectively.

Let me share one of my experience when I was a newbie.

Once I created a blog, I was just posting quality articles regularly, there were no change in the website authority.

I was getting only a limited number of visitor per day.

By chance one of my article ranked on the first position.

You won’t believe, but after that article almost all of my article start getting a good amount of rank. It happens because I was using internal linking in all of my blog posts.

But it can be only helpful when you are linking with the relatable links, which has any type of relation with the ranked article.

Use Media (Image/Video/Graphics)

Media are not most important in SEO Writing but it is helpful For SEO in different ways for content optimization.

In addition, it makes our content attractive and more readable, and interesting.

I always recommend to use Inforgraphics, videos, images, etc. because there is a chance that if your article is not ranking then your image may rank, and it is much more helpful for bringing quality organic traffic.

You can

  • Embed videos
  • Use Infographics
  • Insert pictures
  • Add screenshots

I hope you are going to insert multi media from your next blog posts.
