So let’s get started with keyword research.
1]Proper keyword researching:-
We all know,
keyword research is the first step of Seo.
Without a perfect keyword, we can’t Optimize the article.
So now you must be thinking, how to find the best keyword??
So let’s understand it well…
when you are going to find keyword for your blog post, one thing you have to decide in which area/niche you have to write the article.
I think you are a little bit confused so let’s understand with an example…
Niche selection means in which area you want to write an article.If you want to write an article about Health and fitness then choose your seed keyword/focus keyword like -Best health tips or fitness tips etc…
So now what is the focused keyword/seed keyword??
Focus keyword refers to that keyword which is mostly used in your article and title and the complete post creating regarding that keyword.
When you find out focus keyword then look up its monthly search volume. Don’t choose any high search volume keyword.
Always go for medium search volume keyword like(500 to 3000 monthly searches).
Also, Don’t choose any high SEO competitive keywords for your article because if you choose a high competitive keyword then you can’t rank it in the search engine easily because of high competition.
Now a question must be bouncing around your mind.
How can you Find out keyword Competition and Volume?
For me, KW FINDER is my personal favorite.
You can find your Niche related long tail keyword with the help of Wikipedia and many famous forums like- warrior forums, Quora, yahoo answer and lots more.
By that some forum and q&a sites you can found many searchable long tail keywords. In that way, you can know your user needs.
Always go for long tail keywords(click to know what is a long tail keyword) when you are finding Focus keywords for your article.
One problem with longtail keyword is it has low search volume, but if you are a beginner in the SEO field then choose Longtail keyword.
Because Longtail Keywords are quite easy to rank on the First page of Google.
For writing a perfect SEO optimized article your focused keyword density must be in between 0.5% to 1% Naturally.
Always remember that you have to use your focused keyword in your title tag(H1, H2, H3) any one of them or you can also use in all 3 headings.
My recommendation is, use your focused keyword in the H1 tag.
Use your focused keyword in the first 100 words of your article.
Remember, Always try to use your focus keyword naturally, don’t use continuously it looks like spam in google eyes.

If you already know about Lsi keywords then keep reading the article.
Lsi stands for latent semantic indexing.
Lsi keywords are synonyms of your main focus keywords. Let us understand with an example…
ex-If you writing a post about “apple computers” then you can use much more related keywords like-Apple iPhone, apple mac book, apple i pad, apple computers price, apple store and much more related to Apple company brand.
In the above example, you see all the names are synonyms to Apple brand.
If you use all the synonyms keywords in that post then google crawlers better understand about your article and it also helps you in ranking.
Google already lunch Algorithm updates known as ”Hummingbird”.
The updates are all about the Lsi keywords implementation and make the content better for a user.
The ”Hummingbird” Algorithm mostly focus on the use of Synonyms keywords rather than focus keywords.
By the use of LSI keywords, Google easily knows about your article intent and rank them in a better place.
Now we discuss “How you can find out Lsi keywords for free”.
You can find outs lots of Lsi keywords for your contents with the help of “Lsi Graph” tool.
It’s a free tool that provides you a feature to generate Synonyms keywords.
Just put your main focus keywords in the Lsi graph tool then you can find out lots of suggested synonyms keywords.

Post title:- How your reader sees the title of your post on your blog/website.
Post meta title/Seo title:- How search engines show your post in the search result.
You can write your post title without using any focus keywords.
But you have to write your post SEO title that optimized for search engine(include keyword)and also attractive and more clickable.

Yes, you need to write a thorough and complete descriptive article for your Reader.
Because if you write a thorough article you can able to cover every single topic around your keyword.
That’s why a user gets a piece of complete information about his query.
So that Google gives more priority to thorough articles that are more than 2000 words at least.
According to the Backlinko Research Case study->”Longer content tends Higher Google Ranking”
So if you want to rank high in search engine then you have to write the most Effective and Thorough article.
By the long blog post, your visitor stays more time on your web page that’s why your page dwell time is also increased. That effect positively on SEO.
7]Image ALT attributes:-
You know Google can’t read your images. You have to input a perfect name when you upload your image in the blog post.
Always remember input the actual name of your image or proper name.
Many people make the mistake of uploading the image name like image 301.jpg. That’s a major mistake.
When you naming your image then the name should be relevant to the image.
For example:– If you have taken a screenshot of Amazon affiliate dashboard, then the name should be- Amazon affiliate program or Amazon Associates.
By the naming of an image, Google can recognize/read your image. That’s why your on-page SEO will be increased.
You can use SEO friendly image plugin, for ‘‘alt attributes” of the image.
By the proper naming of your image, when someone searches that image then they will find you in the search engine. That’s why your blog traffic will rise.
My recommendation is when you add the name of an image, then must add your Focus keywords that’s why your on-page SEO is will be better.
8]Internal linking to your blog post.
When you publish a new post, then always remember that you have to put your old blog article link in a new/recent published post.
That’s why your traffic will be increased.
Your search engine can re-crawl your post. (it is the biggest reason for internal linking).
Your bounce rate will reduce and that effects positively on your on-page SEO strategy.
And you know by the internal linking you can transfer one-page link juice to another page. That’s really helpful to you in search engine Ranking.
You know when you link to a blog post, you see an option to add link and title. Then make sure you have to add the main focused keyword in the title.
You can also use the plugin called SEO smart links, for automatic internal linking with your old blog post.
9]Use Outbound Linking.
You know outbound linking is a Good SEO strategy.
In the outbound linking, you have to link other websites similar to content with your blog post.
If you linking your Blog with high Authority sites then your blog post trust will increase and that definitely help you in ranking.
So try to give outbound links to 5 to 10 sites on a single Blog article.
10]Remove your stop words in permalinks:-
When you write a title for our blog post then you can usually use a lot of stop words that have negative effects on SEO.
Try to avoid stop words like – a, able, above, about, actually, after, always, around, allow, among, also, hence, here, hi, him, inside, indicate, latter, knows, least, less, something, see, sent, seen, she’s, serious, thanx, take, them, etc…
For example:- 5 ways to earn money online
Now your permalink would be like- domain.com/5-ways-to-earn-money-online
In the above example ‘To’ is a stop word. now you have to click on edit permalink and remove the stop words.
NOTE:- Always remember never edit your blog post permalink after publishing the post.
When you going to write a perfect SEO optimized article then you have to Use your heading tags one by one.
I know, when you writing a post then you use the Heading tag like-first H1 then H2 then H3 and so on.
Yes, that’s a good idea but when you writing a long article then how can you use Heading tag one after another.
My recommendation is to read this article ‘‘How to use proper heading tags in the blog post”.
According to the On-page SEO guidelines, you have to use your focus keyword in H1, H2, and H3 header tags.
If you are a WordPress user then you surely heard about Tags.
So now I will discuss what is tags and what are the advantages of writing an SEO article.
Tags are just like a simple word that helps in finding more relevant contents of your blog.
Some people use tags around 10-15 that’s the biggest mistake.
In the google eyes that things are spam. So you have to care about those things.
Use tags minimum 2” or maximum 5” that set.
Use tags relevant to your blog post or article.
By the use of tags blog bounce rate will be reduced more and more and that affect positively on your SEO.
Always remember don’t use lot’s more tags that’s why your WordPress database is covered unnecessarily.
13]Make your blog mobile friendly.
You have to design your site according to the mobile-friendly algorithm. Because nowadays mobile is mostly used for search in google.
If you want to optimize your website according to a mobile then download AMP FOR WP WordPress plugin.
