Do you thinking about creating a blog or you have created a blog and want to know how to write a blog post in the right way, then for this, you have to read this article thoroughly. Because through today’s article, I will give you complete information on the right way to write an article in a blog.
Most of the new bloggers create their own blogs but they do not know the right way to write a blog post so their article never ranks on Google. From writing a blog post to getting it on the first page of a Google search, a lot of hard work has to be done.
But if you do that hard work in the wrong direction then hardly your blog post will ever rank in the Google search engine. Therefore, to write a blog post, many small things have to be kept in mind, which you will get to know in this article.
So let’s start without wasting time.
What is Blog Post
You must have found many blogs on the internet in which different types of information are in the form of articles. The article present in any blog is called a blog post. As if you are reading this article of mine, then this is also a blog post.
What to do before writing a blog post
This is where most new bloggers make a mistake. Before writing a blog post, they do not prepare well, due to which they have to face many problems in writing blog posts. If you take care of the things mentioned below by me before writing a blog post, then you can write a great blog post.
1. Select the blog topic
Before writing a blog post, it is very important to choose the blogging niche (the topic of the blog). It would help if you never started blogging after seeing others. Because if you make your own blog by looking at the blogs of others, then your chances of being successful will be significantly less.
Follow your passion and in whichever topic you have good knowledge of, in which topic you can write articles, create a blog on the same topic, and start writing blog posts.
2. Do keyword research
Before writing a blog post, you must do keyword research, only then your blog will be able to rank on Google. The better you do keyword research, the more likely you are to rank in Google.
While doing keyword research, the new blogger always has to keep in mind that only uses the Long Tail keyword in his article. Because there is less competition for them, these keywords also rank quickly on Google.
3. Make a blueprint before you write
After finding the keyword, you have to make a blueprint of the article. Blueprint means how will you write the article, which topic will you cover in the article, which topic will you write first, what will be the order of writing the topic etc.
Suppose you are writing an article on a computer, then you have to make a list of all the topics that you will write in the computer article. Such as types of computers, how a computer works, the history of computers, etc.
All these are called LSI Keywords. You can read our LSI keywords article to learn how to find LSI keywords.
4. Do content research
After creating a blueprint, you also have to do content research to write a blog. By doing content research, you will get an idea of whether you are writing the correct information in the blog post or not.
Suppose you are writing an article about computers and you have good knowledge about computers, but still, you should do content research.
One advantage of this will be that you will get to know about some new things which you can write in your article. And you will also be satisfied that all the information given by you is correct.
5. Create an image
Before writing a blog post, you have to make all the images as well. You must use at least 1 image in every blog post. But keep in mind that the image is copyright free, either you create the image by yourself.
You have to do all these things before writing a blog post.
How to Write a Blog
After doing all the preparations before writing a blog post, now you have to write a great blog post that can rank on Google. Because if the blog post will not rank in Google then traffic will not come to your blog.
To write a good blog post, keep the following things in mind
1. Write a Basic Intro to Blog
You have to start writing a blog post with Basic Intro, in which you can write what the article is about, and what information the user will get. You can write an intro in 5 to 7 lines. Keep in mind that use the focus keyword in the intro.
2. Start Writing Heading Wise Article
After writing the intro of the blog post, you have to start writing the Heading – wise article. Keep in mind that to write all headings, use Heading Tag.
You will benefit from making a blueprint here too because you have already decided which topics to write in the article and in what order. So you will not have to think much while writing.
If your typing speed is good then after preparing you can write a great blog post within 1 to 2 hours.
3. Write the article in paragraph
Do not try to write a heading of the article in a single paragraph. If you write an article in a single paragraph, then such an article is not user-friendly at all. Therefore, after writing 2-3 lines, give a gap of one paragraph.
4. Use bullet points
Make sure to use Bullet Point if needed in the article. As you are writing about the advantages and disadvantages of computers, then writing in bullet points will make it easier for the user to read.
5. Do keyword placement
Smartly add the keywords you have found to the article. The user or search engine should not feel that you have used the keyword forcefully.
If you write an article of 1000 words, then you should use your Focus Keyword a maximum of 5 times, and the rest 5 times of LSI Keyword. Never over-optimize keywords in blog posts.
Only by placing the right keywords in the article, the article ranks in Google or any search engine.
6. Do internal linking
When you link another article within one of your articles, it is called Internal Linking. If you are writing the first blog post, then you can skip this point.
But when you write a second blog post, then you must link the previous post to it, and in the same way when the number of your posts will increase, then you will also be able to do internal linking.
7. Do external linking
When you link a webpage of another website inside your blog post, it is called External Link. You should not use external links too much in blog posts, just do external links where necessary.
8. Do On-Page SEO
By the way, points 5, 6, and 7 also come under On-page SEO. Apart from these, you also have to optimize the blog post title, meta description, image, permalink, etc. All these are very important from an SEO point of view. On-Page SEO should always be perfect to rank in search engines.
9. Write the conclusion of the article
After writing the article completely, you have to write the conclusion of the article in 5 to 6 lines at the end. In conclusion, also you can use Focus Keyword.
10. Add FAQs
Also, add an FAQ to the article. Write a FAQ (Question-Answer) related to the topic on which you have written the article at the end of the article. You can use a platform like Google, Google Question Hub, or Quora to find FAQs.
11. Write Unique Article
Many bloggers (especially on YouTube) will suggest methods like copy paste, Unique Article Generator, and Auto blogging, which are not at all right to be successful in blogging.
If you write articles using these methods, you may get some success in the short term, but by adopting such methods in the long term, you can never make a successful career in blogging.
Talking about myself, I had also created a new blog using Auto Blogging on the advice of a Youtuber, but even after having 1000 articles in that blog, I did not get AdSense Approval nor did any traffic come to my blog.
Therefore, always try to write a unique article by yourself. Google also fast indexes unique articles.
12. Write an article of at least 600 words
Many people have a question that how many words should be written in the article, the answer is that you should keep the length of the article according to your topic. There should be at least 600 words in an article. And a maximum number of words you can write according to your topic.
If you have implemented the above-mentioned things in the article but your article is 400 – 500 words then the chances of that article to rank in Google will be very less.
You may have to face many types of problems in writing the first blog post and you may not be able to write a good blog post, but with continuous practice, you will definitely learn to write the best blog post after writing 10 to 15 articles.
