Keyword Subject

Wordtracker will help you find the right keyword phrase for your post. Spend approximately 5-10minutes on keyword research. It is possible to incorporate the phrase into your post subject.


Where appropriate, use the keyword phrase as the title for your blog post.

Bolding & Italics:

When appropriate, draw attention with bolding and/or italics.


Add an image from stock photo sites. Add a button that links to related products, if needed. Save the image to upload with the keyword phrase. The keyword phrase can be used in the alt tag.

Select Category

Use the correct category for the post. There are three categories that are most important: Articles/Blog Posts and Videos. Then there are subcategories to each of them.

Add Tags

You should add tags to allow you to link posts that are related.

Use More Tags

The more tag allows for the blog post only to be partially displayed on main page. This tag can be added approximately two to three paragraphs further down the blog post. It is important to pick a place that has interesting or incomplete information so that readers will want to click on the ‘Read More link to see the entire post.

These tips will help you make a technically sound post that has a higher chance at getting high search engine rankings, but they won’t attract enough attention to your readers.

Writing a blog post is only half the battle. Knowing your market is also important. Know your market to find out their most pressing needs. These needs should be addressed so that your readers can move to the next logical level.
