#9. SEO Content– When you start writing your blog, it is important to remember that in order to get more viewers on your page, you must add in SEO (search engine optimized) content. This is where you add a specific word related to the content of your article numerous times. Then when an individual goes to search for that word on the internet, your blog will be seen first before others that do not have SEO content. An SEO consulting firm can help your business or blog start gaining more viewers sooner than you think.

#8. Getting The Right Viewers– When you decide to use SEO content when creating your blog, you will need to take the time to figure out the correct word to use that relates to your blog. For instance, if you are writing about educational products, you can use the word education or the name of the product you are writing about for SEO purposes. If you use the wrong word for your blog, there is a higher chance of you getting all the wrong readers on your blog.

#7. Adding Photos– After you have finished your blog, it is always ideal to add in a photograph that relates to what you have just written.

If you cannot find something directly related to your blog, you can try using a floral print picture or something you find to be worthy of your blogging site.

#6. Key Information– Your blog should always be full of information on the topic you are writing about and never think for an instant that there is too much info.

#5. Title– Having a catchy title for your blog is very important, especially where you are competing with millions of other bloggers around the world.

This means that you will have to have at least one to two words in the title are related directly to the topic.
