Professional bloggers use a predefined format to write their blog post, few of them make agenda for writing post, few write the rough post on the pages and make them perfect while writing on WordPress. I am using MS Word 2016 for writing the blog post as it will automatically correct my spelling mistakes. Some people use Grammarly tool for correcting spelling mistakes, but I would recommend you to go for Word 2016. I have seen some bugs in Grammarly that it will make an error while correcting your mistakes.
Few things you should follow while writing the blog post. This is not a standard method which you must follow, but to make your blog post SEO friendly I would recommend you to follow this. Here I am going to tell you some essential things which I am using for my blog that will help you while writing the blog post.
The first step for writing the blog post is selecting the right topic for your post. Readers will attract to your blog by looking at just post name if your post title is excellent and unique then only they visit your blog. While choosing post name to be unique don’t copy others, keep it simple as possible and always keep it in mind that readers will not read old topics.
The selected topic for the blog must be unique. If you are not getting any different topic, then you can choose any topic but don’t forget to change the name of the post. The content of the post must be unique, and some bloggers copy the content from another blog. This will not be helpful as Google will directly penalize such blogs. Google crawler is pretty smart to identify the reproduced material. Also, it will decrease your page rank in Google search engine.
Cover all points
While writing the content, make sure that you are covering all the crucial aspects which readers are looking for. At the start, give a brief introduction to that topic. If the beginning of the post is right, then only readers will read the whole post, so try to convince readers what you are going to write.
The visual tutorial is stronger than a text tutorial. Add at least a single image in every blog post that will attract some users. While adding images to your blog, make sure that you are not using copyrighted images. You can use the canva website for HD image creation of your blog. Also, use MS-Office to create a simple image or chart that describes your articles. If you are using Flickr images, then give proper credit to them.
While writing blog post tries to add interlinks in between the content so that readers will not go to another blog. Interlinks help our users engage in our blog also it will increase the page views. If you add the related links in a blog post, then there is a possibility that readers will check that post also.
Consistency throughout the blog post is right. Here at scrollbucks, I am using some format for writing a blog post.
- Image if any
- Topic description
- Add interlinks
- Conclusion if any
- Final words
You can also create your format for writing post, don’t change that format for every post. It is not compulsory to use the same format, but if you are following some rules, then your blog will look beautiful.
Avoid mistakes grammatically
This is a significant step as it will directly affect your blog traffic. This looks like a useless step, but it will negatively affect your credibility, the reader’s point of view will change towards you. Don’t neglect the grammatical mistakes while writing content. If you are not able to find out the spelling error, then you can use some third party tools for that. I would recommend you to use MS Word and Grammarly. This tool will defiantly remove all the grammatical mistakes which you made throughout the post.
Length doesn’t matter more if you have complete all the points in your post. The length of the post depends on the topic which you are writing. Some blogger thinks that 600 words are compulsory for a single post. I would suggest you don’t increase the length of the random post try to cover all points of that topic.
After completing the post, you must write the final words for concluding your post. Some readers will get influenced by these last words or conclusion. In the last paragraph, what you should write is trying to write a few words about what you have written above.
