Are your post attractive enough to attract the attention of your blog visitors. Are you using those old format to write the post which is sufficient to repel you blog visitors from your blog. Here I am going to discuss some crucial factors about writing post on which your article beauty depends:
1. Topic of the post
Select a topic belongs to your niche, never select any random topic. Always do some great research before writing any post. Here research means go to some great blogs in your niche and find what they are writing about. You can easily find some great blog in your niche by visiting Alltop.
2. Post Title
Now Title is most important thing in terms of marketing and SEO. Always select attractive title, which brings lots of visitors. Here I want to give you example of my article in which I select an unattractive topic. My topic was Blogging tools where I wrote about blogging 25 blogging tools which are essential for blogging. Later I realized my mistake that I could make the title more attractive by giving it a title 25 killer and Must Use Blogging tools By Bloggers.
3. First Paragraph
First paragraph decides the intention of writer. First paragraph should tell the story of the article. Whatever you want to express you should talk about it in your first paragraph. This is a correct way to tell people what you are going to express in your rest of the article.
4. Hyper linking Text
Hyper linking text is a nice practice for SEO. Google love links, links may be outbound or inbound link, it increase the authority of article. Make a habit to hyper linking your keywords. These links are also known as Anchor text. Use WordPress Auto link plugin or
SEO Smart Links which can automatically link keywords and phrases in your posts and comments with corresponding posts, pages, categories and tags on your blog.
5. Insert Image
Always use image in an article. Picture tells everything, pictures boost the performance of article by 100%. Use some attractive photographs on your post which can able to tell the story you want to tell the readers. There are some great resources to find free licensed photographs for your blog.
6. Length of Article
Always keep the length of article short and explanative. 500-700 words article is sufficient to tell your readers everything. Try to write list post with heading on each point. Sometimes reader is in hurry so that he can’t able to read your entire post. If you are a live writer user you can easily check the word count in the footer of the editor.
7. End paragraph
End paragraph is also as important as starting paragraph, Always try to write the conclusion of your article in end paragraph, do not forget to ask questions from readers, you can also give your subscribe to feed link and your twitter profile link at the end of your article.
8. Checking errors
Error checking is the crucial check points before publishing any article. I use Microsoft Word Review feature and Grammar checking tool to check my all the spelling, punctuation and Grammar mistakes.
9. SEO setting
Some people generally publish the post from Windows Livewriter by using Publish button. This is not a nice habit. Always use post draft to blog feature of Live Writer which automatically send your article to WordPress draft. Now go to WordPress setting for editing post and make sure all the data for you all in one SEO setting is filled by you in a proper manner. Never leave the post description area blank.
