Blogging is one of the most important processes in the SEO ladder of success. But many people, including myself, struggle to come up with good, clean, original content. Here are some of the few tips to help you generate blog content from some of the best bloggers around! Buckle up this is going to be a crazy and informative ride!
- Know what you readers want: I know this is easier said than done, but give it a try. You have a pretty good idea what your clients’ expectations are. Find a specific audience and target their interests.
- Become a better Writer: Writing is very similar to exercising; at first it hurts and painful, but after a while you get used to it, and it becomes more enjoyable. The more blog posts you write, the more comfortable you will become in writing them over time. You will also start to get a feel for what interests your audience members, and what turns them off. To become a better blogger, all you really have to do is write more!
- Write about what you know: If you’re a painter, and you’re trying to generate more content for you site, write about some of the paint jobs you recently performed. That way you know what you’re talking about, you’re writing about something you’ve spent your live doing, and it shows your audience your experience.
- Search Engine Optimization: Finding a target audience is essential, but you can’t forget to please the search engine! Remember to write a specific title and a description that targets your keywords. In the blog post itself, make sure you add keywords; about 10% of the blog should be keywords. Don’t forget to target specific areas and towns; when writing blog posts, you should focus on one job, name the town or city the job took place in, and share with the reader and the search engines the steps you took to complete the job.
Blogging doesn’t seem too hard does it?! All you really have to do is find an audience, learn what they are interested in, and always include search engines on all of your writings! Blogging can be very painstakingly boring, but just remember the great benefits of blogging: communicating one on one with your clients, sharing your experience, hitting keywords and areas, and of course satisfying search engines!
