7. Write Longer Content if You Can

Google recommends that you have at least 1000 words to rankable blog content. Images should be relevant, large, and clickable in order to provide your users with engaging content and encourage them to visit your site.

How can I tell if my blog content has SEO potential?

SEO-friendly content refers to articles that are easily readable by search engines and users. This means that the content should be easily understood by most people.

SEO-friendly content should be written with the intent to assist the reader. To achieve this, your content must address a specific topic, the problem, or solution and should look interesting enough to be read by readers.

However, this does not mean that you should stuff the content with keywords. This would make it appear spammy.

8. Use High-Quality Images

Images that are relevant to your topic must be captivating. Alt-text is a text that is added under your images or videos. This will allow search engines to index your image and determine its context within your website.

Before you upload an image to your website or blog, make sure you include alt text in the graphics editor. Alt text can be added to images to improve your SEO rankings and help visually impaired people use screen readers to access them.

9. Divide Paragraphs

Breaking up paragraphs is one of the best ways to organize your blog posts. Research has shown that people skim when reading and look for specific information.

People (and search engines!) find it difficult to read large blocks of text. You might also lose your reader if they don't pay attention immediately. Break up paragraphs into shorter sentences as soon as possible.

Concentrate on breaking down long paragraphs into smaller, more digestible chunks. This will help users to find the content easily. The total number of paragraphs in a section must not exceed300 words.

Thank you for these tips Israel. One question, should I put a "no follow" when linking to authority sites ?
Reply

If you add a nofollow or dofollow tag when linking to an authority site, it doesn't have any negative impact on both the site to which you're linking and yours, even though a nofollow tag will not transfer any SEO juice to that site.

But does that mean Google doesn't follow a nofollow tag? Of course, it does. In fact, it's proven that a single nofollow tag can drive hundreds of targeted visitors to your site, such as blog comment links, Quora links, etc.

I hope it helps!
