Lost in the world that is SEO? I’ve put together the most straightforward tip’s there are so that you can beat Google at its own game.
1. ALT text
Adding images to your blog, click properties now and add some relevant keywords and text to your photos, this will help them appear when people google’s or icon searches your blog content. It is also the description that appears if readers pin your images, and if you don’t have an explanation, it is likely they won’t want to pin your blog post, as it takes the ease out.
2. Search Description
At the side of your blog post, there is an option to fill in a description of what your post is about. Fill this with one-two sentences with details about what your post is about, as this will come under the title and link on Google.
3. Post title
It is very often you will want to create a creative, heading for your post’s as you will feel this is more engaging, but honestly? It’s best to title the post with what the post is about, with as many keywords as possible, if you are looking to market your blog.
4. Photo name
When saving images, make sure to keep them with an actual title, as image 45732 will not create anything or allow for your image to come up on an image search. Try Include highly searched for keywords. ‘e.g.’ SEO, blogger tips.
In the first few sentences of your blog post, use words from your title. I have used SEO in my title, in my image Alt text and my opening paragraph, make it so Google really cannot ignore your post when someone is searching for relevant content.
