SEO tips for bloggers

Are you a blogger who loves to write nice write-ups on interesting topics? Do you also track the traffic on your blog? If you do, but don’t see a good amount of traffic on your blog, then you must read this post. In this post, I have mentioned a few SEO tips that every blogger must follow to get noticeable positions on search engines as well as more traffic to the blog.


#1 Optimize the Blog Titles

Optimizing blog titles for the desired keywords is the first and foremost step in writing a blog. When you infuse targeted keywords in your blog post’s title, meta description, and main body write-up, search engines will likely be able to find your blog posts easily and rank them on the search result pages for their appropriate search queries.

#2 Monitor the Download Speed 

Make sure that your blog gets downloaded quickly otherwise, it could affect your credibility among search engines like Google. You can use certain free tools available online. One of the best tools to check the download speed of a website or blog is 

You may open this website; enter your blog URL in the query box and run a test to check the download speed of your blog. I am sure you must know that search engines love those websites which doesn’t take much time to download and give their users a great experience. 

You may also seek advice from a website designer who can help you figure out the reason & an appropriate solution if your blog download speed is slow.

#3 Use SEO Plugins

There are a lot of SEO plugins available especially if your blog has been developed using WordPress.One of the best SEO tools that I would like to recommend here is Yoast’s SEO plugin for WordPress. This tool will help you to write SEO-friendly blogs which will increase the chances of getting a noticeable amount of traffic on your website.

#4 Interlink Your Blog Posts

During my practice as an SEO Consultant, I have noticed that many bloggers either underestimate the power of interlinking blogs or forget to link the blog posts with each other. Whenever and wherever you find any relevant phrase or keyword on which you have already written a blog in the past, you must make sure to link it with the URL of your old blog post. This practice will help you not only to give your users a great browsing experience but also help search engines to crawl maximum pages.

#5 Search Engine Submission

You put so much effort into gathering the required information & putting it together for your audience and writing a nice blog but if you don’t let search engines know about your blog, you may not get the appropriate audience to view your posts. It is, therefore, recommended that you submit your blog to major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing.

By implementing the above tips for your blog, you will see a noticeable increase in traffic. Check out my other post which talks about 6 SEO mistakes you could make while blogging.
