search the top sites which are ranking for your keyword for that you can use
keyword research tools
Like Ahref,semrush,Moz, and review the top 10 sites that ranking on the first page of google and find the keywords on which their blogs are ranking.
Make a list of those keywords and take ideas from your competitors’ blogs what tone and ways they put in their blogs to get high SERP results in google..
Then you can start writing content better than your competitor.
To optimize your content.
Here I reveal some excellent strategies:
Strategy 1: Keep blog post length at least 2000 and above words and must target your focus keyword in the first 100 words.
Strategy 2:Try to keep keyword density near to 0.50 means for every 100 words, your focus keywords come at least once.
Strategy 3: Use LSI (Latent semantic indexing) keywords related to your target keyword in your Blog Post.
Strategy 4: Make interlinking and external linking with good Domain authority sites.
Add eye-catching Images and Videos
Have you watched movies without color (black& white) and with color?
What difference do you feel?
A colored movie is more attractive than a Black and white movie.
Images have the same importance in blog.
Images and videos help boost the engagement of your readers and SEO.
Use short Paragraph in Post
Write your content in short paragraphs; you will see when you use short paragraphs your content presentation is more promising to engage your readers.
Always try to write simple words in your sentences because if your readers are not familiar with the superior vocabulary, they may move on from your Blog.
Write your paragraph should be a combination of short ( 1 line), medium (up to 2 to 3 lines) and long ( up to 5 lines) maximum.
Always try to write your statement in active voice over passive.
Active voice helps to create more readers friendly sentences.
For example,” he writes content” in the active voice, and The content is written by him” in a passive voice, see the difference.
Active voice statements are more effective over the passive voice.
Research before writing facts and statistics.
In content writing, it is sometimes necessary to prove your point regarding your opinions, and that place you need to confirm your point by giving facts, case studies, statistics, or ideas from the right authorities..
If you are not sure about any relevant facts and statistics that you are going to use in your content, then don’t use it until you know the source of that facts and statistics.
Non-credibility content, lose the faith of your readers.
So whenever you use authority quotes or statement in your content make sure
It comes from their source of origin.
Using authority sites facts and statistics in your content always make good faith in the readers’ mind, and they think you did proper research to present your data in front of them.
Let me show you by the example of David Oglivy statement
David Oglivy was also known as the father of advertising.
In his statement, he focuses on the importance of headlines.
