How To Optimize Your Posts To Increase Blog Traffic 2021
Keep in mind that optimizing your posts in order to rank better on search results is all about making your posts more keyword focused.
1. Do Your Keyword Research
“A keyword is the word that someone using a search engine types-in to find your post online”.
A keyword research should be done before coming up with a post. You can make use of Google Analytics free keyword tool to search your targeted keyword and view how many searches it gets. Try as much as possible to narrow down your keyword (never go for broad keywords) to avoid much competition and ensure that whatever keyword you are going for has a reasonable monthly search, at least 22,000 searches a month.
2. Add Your Keyword To The Post Title
Create a descriptive & enticing post title and include your keyword in it. This wouldn’t only help your posts rank well on its keyword, it will help grab the searchers attention and they will end-up ignoring other search results to visit your post.
3. Optimize Your Post URL
Customize your post URL, let it look professional to readers and search engine crawlers. Include your targeted keyword in your post URL and totally avoid using numbers. Here is an example of a well optimized URL “tekytech.com/seo/easy-ways-to-drive-traffic”.
4. Properly Optimize The Meta Description
The Meta Description is another factor that can be used to convince searchers to visit your post, it goes immediately after the post title. You can optimize your meta description by including your targeted keyword and creating a summary showcasing all the important points your post harbors.
5. Add Keyword To Sub-headings, Post body & Underline, Italics or Bold it
The post sub-headings should contain your keyword, same goes to the article body. Add your targeted keyword to the post body and have them in bold, underlined or italics form, this makes your post “More Keyword Focused”.
6. Interlink With Your Keyword
Interlinking as i always say is a powerful On-page Seo Method. This helps visitors easily navigate through your blog, hereby reducing your bounce rate as well.
7. Don’t Over Do It
Do not stuff your post with keywords. Too much of everything isn’t good, right? (except too much of traffic, lol). Try to maintain at least a keyword density of 4% – 5% and have a professional looking post.
These are the easiest ways to fully optimize your posts and dramatically increase your blog traffic. All wordpress bloggers can make the whole optimizing process easier by using recommended SEO plugins such as Rank Math And Seo by Yoast. I hope this helps you.
