Get On The Technical Side Of Blogging
Blogging is not all about writing, curating, and reading. It is also about what we do to get the information published on the internet and maximizing its visibility and exposure on the search engine. The only way to get your blog ranking on the first page of Google is by learning about SEO, search engine optimization, and several SEO techniques.
Having a cool domain name and a fantastic website is only the beginning of your blogging journey. The harder part of it is to get the exposure your blog deserves. And for this, we need SEO. Some common SEO practices include keyword researching, image optimization, creating high-quality content, optimizing the URL, and including keywords in your meta description. The practices and their effects are dependent on the google algorithm and what counts to improve your page ranking.
Eye-Catching Title And Content
How worthy is your content? Does your content have an equally eye-catching headline to accommodate it? Readers often do not read online. They skim. Majority of the time all we do is skim through the blog. As much as we would like to believe that people read even the most interesting of articles, they usually dont. They read what grabs their attention. And it is our job to make skimming easier for people with high-quality content. Your high-quality content dos do not have to be long like a college essay. It has to be properly distributed into catchy subheadings, be informative, short, and accompanied with a title that makes someone jump to the article.
And what about an article that makes someone jump towards it? This is something clearly subjective but it is not that hard to figure out. People click on articles with headlines that look like they will solve their problems. Do your headline and title tag look valuable to your readers?
More importantly, is your content worth the time of your consumer and readers?
