How to Write Effective Blogs
You are excited and have something you want to share with the world, so you write blogs. But do you know how to write effective blogs for good search engine optimization results? Don't get me wrong, it is still okay to write blogs just to write and share your ideas. However if you are writing a blog for money, then you need to consider how you go about writing it effectively.
For example, 80% of the blogs that I write here at Wealthy Affiliate I do for two reason, to help educate all of my readers and to in some way enhance my online business. I do the latter by linking back to these blogs from within relevant content on my websites. There is also another way to make money with my blog.
DID YOU KNOW?
Every single one of these blogs that all of you are writing here within Wealthy Affiliate (WA) are not just visible to the WA community, they are visible to the entire internet world. Did you know that? Just like your websites are visible to the entire World Wide Web (www), so are these blogs that you are writing here.
If you write these blogs effectively, with the proper use of keywords for good seo, your blogs will rank highly in Google just like your website content. All of these blogs you are writing, including this one you are reading, are being indexed into Google. So if someone who is not a WA member reads this blog (or any of yours) and becomes intrigued enough to want to join WA, I (or you) will make money from that person joining.
Do you see why it is a smart idea to write some or all of your blogs with the same seo techniques that you use for your website? If you use proper seo guidelines within your blogs they will rank higher in Google. If they rank higher then more people will see them and perhaps one or more who see and read them may be inclined to join WA and thus you will make money from that.
SEO TIPS FOR BETTER BLOGS
If you are a member of Wealthy Affiliate I am sure you have already learned (or are about to learn) how to write your content effectively using keywords. The training that all members get here at WA, both Starter and Premium, teaches us how to find and then use keywords in our content. You just have to apply those same guidelines that you do for your website creation to your blog creation too.
Choose good keywords to use for your title, place those keywords in the first paragraph of your content and write naturally after that. For example, the keyword I used for this blog post is “how to write effective blogs” and as you can see it is repeated in the first paragraph of this blog. I was also able to place two other keyword phrases within the first paragraph as well. No I’m not going to tell you what they are. Let's see if you are smart enough to find them. Hehehe
Use the knowledge that you have acquired here at WA to not just write better website content but to also write better blog posts. Make sure to proofread your content a couple of times, correcting any spelling and grammar issues where needed. You never know who will be reading your blogs from outside of WA and it would be a shame if what you write in your blogs gives you and/or WA a bad reputation. So blog smartly people!
