What To Check For Before Publishing Your BlogPost

Last Update: December 04, 2019

After writing your keyword rich content – preferably over 1,000 words – and giving it the perfect headline, you may have to consider checking out a few things before hitting the Publish button.

These actions positively affect your On-page Search Engine Optimization.

  1. Proof read your content to eliminate spelling errors. Grammarly is a tool you can use.
  2. Add relevant images. Copyright free/Royalty free images can be got from sites like Pixabay, StockSnap, Pexels and Unsplash.
  3. Add appropriate Alt Tags within images with relevant keywords
  4. Add an Internal Link. This points your readers to article on your website.
  5. Add an External Link. This points to an authority site with content similar to yours
  6. Add a clear Call to Action. This is to request your readers to subscribe to your mailing list.
  7. Add Rich Snippets only if your blog/post is a review.

For great results, ensure that your fast loading website has Secure Sockets Layer (https) and with a Mobile Compliant theme.

Excellent post. I think everybody should make a copy for themselves and put it in front of them when they write content as a checklist before hitting the publish button.
Thanks Ahimbe.
