Learn Google’s featured snippets
Now if you want your article to be on 1st spot on Google search engine then you must need to learn how Google’s featured snippets work because with the help of Google’s featured snippets your article will get the 1st spot.
Normally, Google picks the second paragraph of your blog post and if you have answered what readers are looking for, and if you solve the problem then boom it will rank 1st on Google.

Link your older post to latest blog post
Linking your older article in the latest article is very important because that will give extra watch time to your website and chance to rank higher in search engines. Keep in mind, link only those articles which are related to a particular blog post, for example,
If I have written a “How to Earn Money on YouTube”, so here I can link any of your articles related to money and ways to earn money online but I can’t link “How to make a tea”.
By the way, there is no limit for how many links you can attach to one article, but make sure you link related articles.
Do a Proper Research
Whether you are writing a small blog post or large blog post, do proper research before you write anything. Don’t write a single word before proper data.
One thing you may have heard, don’t focus on quantity, focus on quality. So don’t forget those things ever because that will give you a better result in the long run. Now to do research, you can read an article online or read a book, go outside observe or watch videos.
Don’t think doing research is a waste of time, it will give you data that you can use in every blog post. Here some ways you can do research for your coming articles…

Some people don’t like to read but if they see some good images then they might stick to your website. If you use some good images which reflate your article topic then it would be great for SEO as well as for readers.
Keep in mind, don’t use over 1MB images because that will reduce the speed of your site. Now I won’t go deep here, because there is nothing more to talk about. Just add some nice and in-low size images.
Still, if you have any question about images then do let me know in the comment box below.
Know Your Audiences
If you are getting a good amount of traffic and people are also engaging with your articles then do interact with people because they will give you content and suggestions for your website.
Make sure you build a good reputation for your website, so if you write an article about a product. Your audience will know, if this website is saying this product is good then it will be good for me. Now the question is how to build an audience,
- Create a Mail list
- Use the BBpress Plugin
Read your article’s comment section to understand your audience. Basically, there are tons of ways to know your audience, you just need to put genuine content on the internet.
Use Bullet Points and Heading
If you have noticed I have used Bullet point as well as Heading for each key point. So Bullet points will give a proper structure to your article and people will understand very easily. If you’re writing a very long article then do use heading and bullet points.
Make sure, use only related Bullet points. Don’t just add anything because people will notice, Bullet points first.
Put Everything in One Article
If you are writing “How to Earn Money Online” then you can’t only talk about Google Adsense, you need to add, FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, Brand deals, Media.net, Affiliate Marketing, Photography, In short everything related to making money online in One article.
When you have all the information in a single article then the user will not search again about the same topic and this way website will rank higher in search engines.
No matter how much time it takes to write a blog post or how long it takes, put everything you know about your article topic.
Search for an Article Title
Now you have done proper research, selected an image, you have a topic to write a blog post, overall you have completed an article. Now it’s time a choose SEO friendly Title, for example, for this article I have used “How to write a perfect Blog Post for your website”.
So make sure you do not choose a very lengthy title, select a not too large and not too small. Now if you don’t know a perfect article title length then use WordPress Plugin name called “Yoast SEO” which will let you know everything about your article.
When you’re writing a blog post about anything make sure you give an answer in the first two paragraphs, don’t just say, I’m will tell you this and that and so on. Directly jump into an answer and then explain that answer in in-depth.
I have also added infographic at the end, so make you check that out because it will get clear idea.
