To Get your posts indexed and rank in google and other search engines fast there are things you need to keep in my as a checklist, these will help guide you in the way you publish your posts on your blog or website in order to have them indexed and rank by google.
WHAT TO HAVE IN PLACE IN YOUR ARTICLE BEFORE YOU PUBLISH.
To do your SEO the right way here are things to ensure that you have in place before you publish any of your blogs;
– keyword in post title
– keyword in meta title
– keyword in meta description
– keyword in social meta title
– keyword in social meta description
– keyword within 1st paragraph make sure the keyword is in the first paragraph of my content
– keyword in the image Alt Tag( i.e Alternative Text)
– keyword in image Alt Title(i.e Image Title Attribute)
– One external link to wikipedia or similar
– One internal link to another page or post ON YOUR SITE
– One youtube embedded video that’s related to your topic
– One social image within AiOSEO or yoast Social settings
– strong call to action at the bottom of my post.
We will be looking at all of these one after another so you can fully understand them and how to apply them.
KEYWORD IN POST TITLE
The first thing you ensure that you have in place is that your keyword is in your post title, because when people do a google search, what comes up first if your post title and if you don’t have your researched keyword in your post title then your blog or website won’t rank.
See image below;
KEYWORD IN META TITLE AND DESCRIPTION
This is where you add your keyword title in your meta title and description in your ALL-IN-ONE SEO or YOAST, this is very important because this is what shows up in your “ Google Snippet” when a search is made as you can see in the image below.
KEYWORD IN SOCIAL META TITLE AND DESCRIPTION.
This is similar to the keyword meta title and description but this one is for all the social links installed to your website which are facebook and twitter. This is where you ensure you have your keywords in the right places for optimizatio
KEYWORD WITHIN 1st PARAGRAPH.
When writing your article make sure the keyword is in the first paragraph of my content, then you can go ahead and write your content NATURALLY.
Don’t try to stuff keywords into your content else google will detect that and not index and rank your site. This is how you put your keyword title in the first paragraph of your articles or blog posts. See image below.
KEYWORD IN IMAGE ALT TEXT. AND IMAGE ALT TITLE.
The “image Alt. text” and “image Alt.Title” is located inside the image upload section when you want to upload your images to your article before you publish.
That is where you will need to put your keyword again for search engine optimization as you can see in the image with red marked arrows indicating the area where you have to put your keyword in all of your uploaded images.
ONE EXTERNAL LINK TO WIKIPEDIA OR SIMILAR.
This is very important to indexing your blog posts and Ranking your website because you are letting google know that you are not selfish with information but you are willing to help your reader with accessing as much information as they can access through your website.
The reason I like using “wikipedia” is because it provides sufficient information with having any affiliate links embedded in all of their links.
So how you add those links is to get a specific keyword related to your article and lookup for it on wikipedia then take the link and add to your post just like in the image below
ONE INTERNAL LINK TO ANOTHER PAGE OR POST ON YOUR WEBSITE.
This is another important aspect of SEO that’s very necessary “ having one or more internal link to another post or page on my website.
As you can see on the image below i have another link from my post on my website embedded in the article i just screenshot, this is very necessary for indexing and ranking of that article.
ONE YOUTUBE EMBEDDED VIDEO THAT IS RELATED TO YOUR TOPIC.
If you have a youtube video that is related to your blog post , you can embed that link to your blog post or article to increase your ranking on google.
The reason being as your web visitors watch the video, google algorithm will rate your website as providing value to your visitors because they are staying on your post for a long time and that way rank your website higher.
If you don’t have any video on youtube, you can get a related video link from another youtuber and embed into your website to help increase your ranking as you can see from my image on one of my related posts on how to make $100 per day.
ONE SOCIAL IMAGE WITHIN ALL-IN-ONE SEO or YOAST SOCIAL SETTING
This one has to do with Majorly your social media posts, having the right image so that when you share your article those pre-uploaded image appear on your facebook,twitter and pinterest posts.
You upload those images right from the AiOSEO Social settings and you are good to go.
STRONG CALL TO ACTION AT THE BOTTOM OF MY POST.
Finally, having a call to action is very key to conversion on your post, because this is where you get your visitor to do what you want them to;
- It may be leaving you a comment
- Asking them to click a link
It can just be anything but having this CTA is very important and you must have them in all you posts.
