For those of you who are either just starting to blog, or are interested in blogging but don’t know how to start—welcome!

Blogging is a great way to share your thoughts and ideas with the world.

But if you’re not sure how to put together an idea into words, it can be tough.

That’s why we’ve compiled this step-by-step guide on how to write a blog post.

I’ll walk you through everything from starting out with your topic all the way up to publishing your post for the whole world.

By the end of this blog post, I promise that you’ll definitely get an eye-opening reason why your blog isn’t getting any visitors or affiliate sales.

So, to ease things up for you, I’m going to share my writing experience, & guide you on, How To Write A Blog Post That Blows People’s Minds.

Let’s start…

1. Decide A Topic On Which You Want To Write A Blog Post About

decide-a-blog-topic

Deciding a topic to write, is the first step to get started with Writing A Blog Post.

Of course, you won’t be able to begin, until you’ve a topic to go with.

Suppose you’re in the Health & Wellness niche. You come up with an idea to write about Keto Diet.

At once, the idea strikes you, note it down in your Content Planner.

The next step is to come up with at least 10-15 topics related to Keto Diet.

They can be: “Weight Loss With Keto Diet”, “Keto Diet Preparation”, “Best Keto Diet Recipie”, “Keto Diet Benefits”, etc.

Note down every other format of Keto Diet you can imagine of in your head. If there are 100 ideas, note down the hundreds. We’ll filter them out later.

Doing this has 3 benefits.

1.1. In Depth, Focused, & Data Oriented Content Research

data-research-before-writing-a-blog

Since, now you know that you have to write at least 10-15 articles on a similar topic, which in this case is, “Keto Diet“.

You’ll perform Content Research on a Deeper Level & Collect all Various Stats & Facts from all around the internet.

This will, in turn, make your blog post more authoritative & convincing for people to read, as it will be purely data driven.

Remember,

“A Data Driven Blog Post, Is The Best Form Of Blog Post”

This builds transparency with your fellow readers. And, your post becomes highly valuable for your readers to consume.

Moreover, you’ll be able to satisfy your user’s search intent to a greater extent.

Since your reader will get approx. everything related to “Keto Diet” on your website, as you’ve published multiple variations articles for this keyword. Then there’s no reason, as to why he won’t subscribe to your blog.

This will create a Good User Experience for your readers, & you know that Google ranks websites higher, which provide a Better User Experience.


1.2 Content Ideas For More Than A Month

unlimited-blog-content-ideas

Second benefit of doing this is that, You’ll Have A Plethora Of Content Ideas which will be enough for At Least 2-3 Months For Your Blog.

The Mistake I see people make with blogging is that, they keep on jumping from topic to topic.

On day 1 they’ll write about, Heart Health, & next day, they’ll jump to Liver Health.

Following this method, will keep you focused on a single topic, & not let your mind deviate to different topics.


1.3. Better Chances Of Ranking Faster & Higher On Google

rank-on-google

Since you’ve written multiple variations of articles on a same topic, which in this case is, “Keto Diet”.

The reader will stay on your website for longer duration to read, & this will signal the Google’s Algorithm that:

“Hey, the user spends more time on this website as compared to its competitors.
This website must be having some quality content.
I should probably rank this website higher”

There’s a win-win for you, as well as your blog.

Moreover, Google will think of your blog as an authoritative website for a particular term.

You’ll be taken as a Personality of High Authority & Credibility in your niche. Just like a heart specialist, who specializes in heart problems, your blog will be specialized in your chosen niche.

Moreover, you’ll be saved from:

  • Getting Distracted To Other Topics,
  • You’ll Have a Ton Of Content Ideas,
  • You Will Perform In-Depth Content Research,
  • You’ll Get More Subscribers &
  • Your Website Will Rank Higher

2. Conduct Keyword Research Thoroughly Before You Start Writing A Blog Post

conduct-keyword-research

After you come up with, let’s say 100 different variations of “Keto Diet”. The next step is to perform Keyword Research.

I personally use Semrush to perform Keyword Research for my blog articles.

I’ve personally tried many Keyword Research Tools, but the robustness & ease of access that you get with Semrush, is definitely way much better than any other tool out there.

If your blog is new, I’d like to suggest that you should go for Keywords having more than 4 words, or target Long-Tail Keywords. Keep the Keyword Difficulty Score Less Than 50, & Global Search Volume Above 1K.

This should be your ideal sweet spot if you’ve just begun.

Follow these steps mentioned below to perform Keyword Research.

Step 1. In Semrush, go to Keyword Magic Tool, & type in your keyword topic you’ve thought about.

keyword-magic-tool-by-semrush

Step 2. You’ll see this results page below

keto-diet-keyword-semrush-results-page

All the Variations of this Keyword, will appear in the list with all it’s stats like, it’s Monthly Search Volume, Keyword Difficulty Score, Total Search Volume, etc.

Step 3. To know more about a particular keyword, click on it, & you’ll see this page

keto-diet-plan-keyword-research-semrush

You’ll get a more in-depth data about your keyword like:

  • The Past Trend Record Of This Keyword
  • Questions People Are Asking Related To This Keyword
  • Multiple Variations Of That Keyword
  • Related Keywords
  • Search Volume (Both Countrywise & Globally)
  • Keyword Difficulty Score, etc.

Conducting Keyword Research, is an important part for creating a Blog Content. Make sure you’re giving it proper attention it deserves.

Take a deeper look into what questions are being framed out of your keyword. Look for other opportunities where you can rank.

Keyword Research can also be done with FREE Tools like Google Keyword Planner & Google Trends. But as you know:

“If Anything Is FREE, Then You’re The Product”

These tools are forever free, but they require hours & hours of research. And unlike Semrush, these tools also lack accuracy & precision.

These FREE tools fail to give you data, on which you can rely upon.

And after spending enough time here, you’ll definitely need to switch to Semrush, so why not do it now. Save your precious time because:

“Time Is Money”

3. Understand What Your Audience Wants, & Their Problems

uinderstand-your-audience-before-writing-a-blog-post

If you’re using Semrush, then you can skip this step. But if you’re using the FREE tools mentioned above, it becomes mandatory for you to follow this step in order to refine your keyword research results.

In order to get a better idea of what people are searching for your target keyword, you need to look for questions, people are asking online.

And to find those questions, you can use these 2 free tools namely Quora, & Answer The Public.


How To Use Answer The Public To Find What People Need Help With

Step 1. Just Go To Answer The Public & type in your Keyword

answer-the-public-home-page

I’ll type in my keyword “Keto Diet” & let’s see what pops up.

Step 2. Get ideas from the results what people want out of your topic

answerthepublic-results-page

You’ll see ton of content & questions, on what people are searching for.

But since it’s FREE, you won’t get the stats, like how many people are asking this question, the Keyword Difficulty Score, etc.

How To Use Quora For Finding What People Are Asking

There are 2 ways to use Quora to find what people need help with. One is FREE Method, & other is a Paid method.

Let’s go with the FREE method first.

FREE Method To Use Quora To Find What People Are Asking

Step 1. Just Go To Quora, & Type in your Target Keyword in the Search Bar above. I’ll Type In “Keto Diet”.

quora-search-bar

Step 2. Just Below “BY TYPE”, select “Questions” in the left column & see all the questions.

quora-questions-filter

Step 3. Click On All The Individual Questions One By One, & See How Many People Are Following That Answer, & How Many People Have Given The Answers.

quora-questions-research

Since 1K People are following this answer, it means that, they’re waiting for the answers to come.

100+ people have answered this question already, & that means you’ve a lot of content to study, & refine your content for max. accuracy.

But, since this is FREE method, you get no stats about the Keyword Difficulty Scores at all. You might end up writing content on your new blog, which might never get ranked on google.

Paid Method To Use Quora To Find What People Are Asking

Step 1: Go To Domain Analytics In Semrush, & Enter Quora.com

Step 2: Search For your Target Keyword or Topic. I’ve Entered “WordPress” as my Target Keyword & Got These Results

quora-semrush-topics

Now, every question on quora, that contains the keyword “WordPress”, & receives the most traffic, will appear here.

Since these Quora Pages are receiving the most amount of traffic, it means people are mostly searching for these topics, on your Target Keyword.

After you’ve found out the questions, you can put them in Semrush Keyword Overview, & see it’s Keyword Difficulty Score, Search Volume, etc. and go with the next step.


4. Observe Your Competitor’s (Big Brand’s) Articles

competition-analysis-before-writing-a-blog

The next step is to gain an insight into what your competitors are doing.

If your Competitors Are Ranking in Top 10, Then Surely They’re Doing Something which is helping them to rank higher.

So, it’s worth checking out at least top 10-15 blog posts on your Target Keyword, & get an idea of “How” & “What” are they doing.

To Do This, Follow The Steps Below:

Step 1: Just Go To Google & type in your Target Keyword. You’ll see the Search results like below

google-search-results

Step 2. Scan The Articles One By One

scan-blogs-posts-before-writing-them

It’s a time consuming process, but it’s worth it. Just look for Headings & Subheadings, that have been used in the articles.

Look for Terms, Keywords, Headings & Subheadings that are common in 2, or more than 2 blog posts.

Don’t get intimidated by this process at all.

Just scan the Headlines & note down the ones which you observe, are being repeated in 2, or more than 2 blog posts.

If possible, create an Excel Sheet to organize your work.

After that, proceed to the next step.

5. Prepare A Content Outline Before You Start Writing A Blog Post

prepare-blog-content-outline

The next step is to Create a Content Outline, & A Basic Structure on How Will You Write A Blog Post.

Gather all the Headings, Subheadings & Data that you’ve re-searched, & collected throughout.

Arrange them in a Particular Sequence, so that it becomes easy for your readers to follow.

Just look at this article you’re reading right now. It too has a proper flow.

The topic was, “How To Write A Blog Post”.

I started with Deciding A Topic -> Keyword Research -> Understanding Audience -> Observe Competitor’s Blog Posts -> Prepare Content Outline -> Actually Writing A Blog Post -> Conclusion

Having a proper flow in your blog post, not only helps you organize your writing schedule, but it also hooks the reader to keep reading further.

If you’re still reading this article, I’m successful in hooking you up to this point. If you loved this tactic, please share this article.


Format I Follow, While I Write A Blog Post

What I personally follow in this process is:

It takes me 3 days to Write A Blog Post From Scratch (excluding the research process).

On Day 1, I Create a New Post in WordPress, and Add all the Headings & Subheadings, followed by images. Then I set them in a proper sequence/flow.

All the Headings, Subheadings & Images you’re seeing in this post have been added on Day 1.

Day 2, I Start Adding Content. All the Stats, Data, Facts & everything else that I’ve gathered in my research, is added on Day 2.

All the written content, it’s editing, & formatting has been done on Day 2.

On Day 3, I check for SEO, like I add internal links, Add Affiliate Links, Add Open Graph Tags, & publish & promote on social media platforms, & Send Newsletter to my E-mail Lists..

This Blog Post has reached to you on 3rd day.

Everyone’s way of writing a blog post can be different. But I like to divide my work into smaller tasks, & get them done in a 3 day sequence.

This is how I create my Masterpiece


6. Now Start Writing Your Blog Post By Following The AIDA Model

a-man-writing-a-blog-post

While Writing A Blog Post, I personally follow the AIDA Model.

This model is ideal for writing all sorts of content, whether it’s a purely Affiliate Article, An Informative Article, a How To Guide, etc.

AIDA stands for

A – Attraction/Attention
I – Interest
D – Desire
A – Action

AIDA-Model-Funnel

These are 4 phases of Writing A Blog Post Starting From Attention to Taking Action.

Let’s discuss the first phase of Writing A Blog Post using the AIDA Model.


AIDA Phase 1: A – ATTRACTING Your Readers/Grabbing ATTENTION Of Your Readers

In this phase, we attract the person who is our potential reader to come to our blog, & read our content.

Since people these days have a very short-attention span, we need to lure/attract them via good images, compelling headlines, etc. to click on our links.

This has 3 sub-phases to follow. It starts with:

Sub-Phase 1.1. Aim For A Persuasive Blog Title/Headline

omg

Your Blog Title/Headline is the very first thing people see on Social Media or Google Search.

Let’s take an example.

BLOG-TITLE-1
BLOG-TITLE-2
According To You, Which Is A Better Headline. Tell me in the Comments Below

Take another example of yourself, ask yourself why you clicked my link & came to my blog to read?

Now look at my Blog Title for the post you’re reading right now. What it says?

Headline 1: “How To Write A Blog Post That Gets HUGE Traffic & Affiliate Sales”

If the headline would have been this simple as mentioned below, would you’ve clicked on it to read this blog post?

Headline 2: “How To Write A Blog Post”

Headline 1 is pretty persuasive as compared to Headline 2. Everyone just loves Huge Traffic & Affiliate Commissions.

Remember,

Your blog will be visited by your potential readers or not, entirely depends upon your Blog Title/Headline

When You’re Adding Open Graph (OG) Tags, you also get an option to add a OG Title, OG Description & an OG Image.

To Add OG Data, Scroll to Yoast SEO column below in the WordPress Editor, & click on Social.

og-title-og-image

When I’ll share this post on any social media platform (apart from Facebook also), I’ll get the view as:

post-shared-on-linkedin
Shared Post Views Like This On Linkedin

Make sure, you’re making your Blog/Facebook Title As Seducing as you can.

Related: How To Write A Blog Title That’ll BOOST Your Traffic Now By 567%

After adding your OG Data, when anyone will share your content on Facebook/Twitter/Linkedin, etc. they’ll see the similar pallet above.

Don’t Get Clickbaity

If you’ll write such things which you can’t deliver, the audience will lose trust of you & will never come back.

If needed, take help of Headline Analyzer Studio.

Sub-Phase 1.2. Add An Attractive Featured & OG Image

attractive-woman

A Picture Says A Thousand Words

The second sub phase of attraction, is an Attractive Image.

If you’re using images, make sure that they’re highly attractive.

As you’ve already seen in above sub-phase, how your blog post when looks, when it’s shared on Social Media.

To make them Look Appealing, use Gradients.

I use readymade Gradients from UIGradients.

To prepare these images, I use Canva.

Sub-Phase 1.3. Hook Your Readers In The Opening Paragraph

a-man-fishing-with-a-hook

The last sub-phase of attraction, is your Opening Paragraph or Introduction.

Can you recall what Youtubers do, in the first 30 secs. that persuades you to watch their entire video?

They either:

  • Show You the Most Interesting Part of Their Video in Form of a 30 sec. Teaser,
  • Promise to Giveaway Something Valuable at the end of the Video, or
  • Show you, How a Person Got Results by Following Their Tips & Advice, etc.

You just have to do the same, while Writing A Blog Post.

In your opening para, depending upon the the type of Blog Post you’re writing, you must add a hook that will persuade people, to read till the end.

If it’s a Product Review or a How To Guide, you can Show Them the Results of, What Other People have Gained with that Guide, or Product.

If it’s a List Based Blog Post, you can add that, “The Best Product/Advice is on the 6th item of the List , Don’t Miss The 6th Point, etc.

Doing these things, will hook the reader to read your blog posts for longer period of time.

This was all about the Attraction Phase of AIDA.

Now, let’s proceed with building INTEREST in your readers.

AIDA Phase 2: I – Evoking INTEREST Within Your Readers

evoking-interests-of-a-person

This is the second phase of the AIDA Model. This phase involves creating INTEREST, among your readers.

Until & unless, your readers feel interested, they’ll never buy from you. They’ll also leave your post without subscribing.

Evoking Interest is an important part, & should be done very cunningly.

To evoke INTEREST among your readers, follow the 5 sub-phases of this Interest Phase.

Sub-Phase 2.1. Talk To Your Readers, Don’t Just Write

two-people-having-conversation

While Writing A Blog Post, learn to interact with them.

Use the Words, “I” & “You” more often in your blog posts.

Interaction creates interest. People don’t come to read a huge wall of text.

They’re here for some information. Make that information, fun to grasp.

Create A Personal Touch With Them

If possible, have a sticky sidebar on your every blog post with your facial image. This will ensure that when people are reading your interactive blog post, they’re seeing your face as well.

This creates an even more personalized experience.

It feels like the writer of the post is talking to you.

I’m working on this tip on my blog post though.

Sub-Phase 2.2. Treat Your Readers As 5 Yr, Old Kids

kid

While Writing A Blog Post, expose every little details of the process.

Breakdown that process into very little individual steps, as I’ve done with this blog post.

Explain everything properly. Give instructions in full detail.

Do you know what?

People Are Hell Lot Lazy

They don’t want to make efforts. So, try to take advantage of this thing, & give them everything you’ve.

This will build up your Authority & Credibility in your niche.

Also Einstein once said:

If you can’t explain a process to a 5 yr. old, it means that, you haven’t understood it yourself

So, go in depth of what you’re explaining.

Sub-Phase 2.3. Add Visual Appeal To Your Blog Posts

cat-writing-a-blog

As you can see, this blog posts has a ton of images. Having beautiful images creates Visual Appeal (that’s what Instagram is known for).

If you take a look at Instagram Feed of popular Instagram Pages. You immediately get attracted to it & hit the Follow button.

This happens because their feed layout is so compelling, that you don’t want to miss their next post at all.

Remember,

“A Picture Says A Thousand Words”

While adding images, make sure they’re relatable to the text, or they should be used to beautify your blog post.

If you’re using images which have text to show, make sure the image dimensions is exactly 1024 pixels wide.

If you’re using images only for beautification, their size shouldn’t go beyond 512 pixels wide.

And before uploading your images, make sure to compress them, & keep the file size of your images less than 100Kb. This allows your site to load faster.

I use Canva & Photoshop to edit my images, & ShortPixel to compress my images.

Sub-Phase 2.4. Don’t Complicate Your Blog Posts

illusion

Play easy on words. Don’t use high vocabulary words to impress people.

People don’t get impressed, they get irritated by your Oxford English

Nobody’s going to give you a prize for your High-Level English Proficiency. This isn’t a SAT exam.

Remember,

“People Don’t Sit With A Dictionary In Hand To Read Your Blog Posts”

Make it simpler for people to understand, & let them follow along with you easily.

Simplicity Is The Key

Sub-Phase 2.5. Make It Easy For Your Readers To Skim Through

headings

The last sub-phase of evoking Interest, is allowing your readers to skim through.

But first, let me present you with a bitter truth.

“Not Every Reader Of Yours, Will Read Your Blog Post Till The End”

I know that you’re making huge efforts, & in turn, you won’t get appreciation from everyone.

It feels bad, I get it.

But remember,

“The Sun Rises Every Day At The Same Time, But Still, Many People Keep On Sleeping & Miss The Beauty Of The Rising Sun.

But That Doesn’t Stop The Sun To Rise Again The Next Day. So Why Should You Stop When You Don’t Get That Appreciation”

Same is with your blog post.

Many people are just sleeping or ignoring your full valuable content. But still, it’s your duty to nourish them with your content, just like the sun does.

People in these times have a very short-lived attention span. They just want to get their work done & move on.

That doesn’t means, that people who aren’t consuming your content till the end, aren’t your readers.

Your job is, to make it easy for those people, to skip to a certain part of your blog post, & respect their time.

To do this, you should add Table Of Contents Plugin In your Blog Posts.

If you’re using a paid version of Affiliate Booster Plugin, you automatically get the Table Of Contents Add-On in their plugin.

You should also divide your content into multiple Headings & Subheadings.

With each heading not containing more than 250 words.

This was all about this INTEREST Section of the AIDA Model. Let’s proceed to phase 3 which is DESIRE.


AIDA Phase 3: D – Generate A Strong Sense Of DESIRE In Your Readers

desire

After you’ve made your readers interested in your content, the next phase is to Generate A DESIRE In Your Readers To Take An Action On Your Blog Post.

Action can be anything: like Buying An Affiliate Product, Comment, Share, Like your Blog Post or Subscribe To Your E-mail List.

This is the most crucial phase, out of the 4 phases of the AIDA Model.

This phase is further divided into 5 Sub-Phases. Let’s get to know them.

Sub-Phase 3.1: Use Power Words To Increase Conversions

power-words

Using Power Words, Is A Proven Method To Increases Conversions & It Works All The Time.

Even Fortune 500 companies use this strategy to boost their sales online.,

Words Like HUGE, BOOST, INCREASE, etc. are known as power words.

Using these words in your Blog Title/Headlines, Headings & Sub-Headings, & Within your Content have been Proved to Increase a Blog’s Conversion Rate by 37%.

That’s a lot.

To Even Refine Your Headlines & Further Improve On Your Conversions Rate, try Headline Studio

Sub-Phase 3.2: Don’t Ask Them To Buy, Instead Show Them The Results

toys

Don’t act salesy in your blog posts.

Remember,

“People Hate Being Sold To”

Instead, show them the end results of your products.

Show them how people have benefitted from using that product/service, & make them imagine, how they can too benefit from it.

People love results. Knowing the process comes later.

So, instead of showing the features of a product, focus more on showing how much impact can it have on the buyer’s life.

Sub-Phase 3.3: Provide Tons Of FREE Value

provide-lots-of-value

Always provide tons of FREE value. Deliver as much as you can for FREE.

The value should be visible in your posts, & it should satisfy every person’s need.

Some people reading your blog, might have the budget to buy, & some might not.

You should satisfy both types of user’s intent.

Show them the FREE method, & then tell them how your paid method can increase their productivity, & get results sooner than the FREE one.

Sub-Phase 3.4: Always Deliver What Your Blog Title/Headline Says

delivery

Stick to your headline, don’t write something just to get clicks.

It’s a slower way, to lose fast in the long run

TRUST of your readers is the most important thing you’ve. Money comes later.

If you break the trust, the path to riches is already lost

Avoid Clickbaits, & even if you’re writing something fancy, make sure your post lives up to it.

Sub-Phase 3.5: Show Stats/Data/ Facts

Show-Stats-Data-Facts

People just love numbers.

They want to see how much money you’ve made last month.

They want to know your child’s school grades.

Take advantage of this.

Add numbers, facts, data and feed those data hungry readers of yours.

Give them every inch of number you’ve.

Doing all these things, generates a strong desire to take action.

Now the last part of the AIDA Model is ACTION.


AIDA Phase 4: A – Ask Them To Take ACTION NOW

call-to-action

When you Write A Blog Post, what action do you want your users to take, should be decided beforehand.

Decide the purpose of writing a particular blog post.

Do you want Shares, Affiliate Sales, etc. These things should be known before you sit down to Write A Blog Post.

In this last phase, since the reader has already evoken the desire to take action, we need to tread this step very carefully.

This can be done by following the below steps.

6.13. Add A Conclusion In The End

write-conclusion-in-a-blog-post

Different Blog Posts can have different types of conclusions.

A List Based Article can have a conclusion section which has the summary of all the list points.

A How-To article can have a generic conclusion.

And a Product review article can have a review results based conclusion, like how’s the product, it’s star rating, etc.

In your conclusion, you can add your Call To Action to generate more Affiliate Sales, more Comments & Shares, etc.

6.14. Add A Provoking Call To Action (CTA)

CTA

Your Call To Actions plays a very important role in determining your conversions.

Try to add your CTA’s just after you’re about to complete a topic.

Avoid words like “BUY”, as I’ve mentioned earlier, people don’t want to be sold to. Instead use GET, TRY, etc.

Also, you can place your CTA’s near the most valuable part of your content.

This works best if you ask people to share your content, just after you mention a very important tip for that topic.

Tell them how will their lives change, when they’ll subscribe to your blog, or buy a product.

Again, if possible, show them the results right after your CTA’s.

6.15. Add E-mail Optin Forms Strategically

email-marketing

Collecting E-mails is a very important aspect of any business running online.

Building your E-mail list from Day 1, is mandatory, if you want to succeed in your online venture.

Invest In A Good Email Marketing Software.

And the most important part, is in knowing that, where should you place your Lead Generation Forms.

I prefer putting forms at, at-least 4 places in my blog posts.

  • At Top of the Blog Post
  • Below the Blog Post where it ends
  • Just after the heart of your content where you give your most precious information
  • An Exit-Intent Pop-Up for people who are just leaving your blog without subscribing

You can also place in your footer, but it hardly gets noticed.

Also, your fixed sidebar is also a better option.

Also use strong CTA’s like, “Take a 15-Day Weight Loss Challenge with me. Fill out this form”, etc.

Build your E-mail Lists, & you’ll get all the money in the world.

As most marketers say:

“Money Is In The List”

Now, this brings us to the end of the section where you finally Write A Blog Post completely.

But hey, there’s some finishing touch you need to give to your Blog Post.

Let’s Get your Blog Post some polishing.


7. Proofread, Before You Publish Your Blog Post

proofread-blog-posts

This is the area, where you’ll get to judge your own content. Before publishing, read your blog post out loud.

Proofreading your own blog post is as important, as Writing A Blog Post.

Proofreading eliminates all possible chances of Errors, like Spelling Mistakes, Grammatical Mistakes, Mistakes Related to the tone of your post, etc.

These silly spelling/grammar mistakes, makes you look unprofessional, & makes it harder for your readers to trust you. They think that:

If you can’t write in good English, how can you help them with their problems

It specially matters, when you’ve blog traffic coming from tier 1 countries like U.S, U.K, Australia, Europe, etc. where majority of speakers prefer English.

You can either proofread your Blog Post yourself, or you can get it done by your friends, or family members.

If you don’t have access to both of these, you can try Grammarly’s Proofreader.

You’ll be glad to know that this blog post too, was Proofread By Grammarly.

Though I’m fairly good at English, but still I use Grammarly to save my time.

proofread-by-grammarly

8. Edit & Trim Your Blog Post

edit-and-trim-blog-posts

While Proofreading, I’m sure you must have come across many silly mistakes.

The mistakes will occur a lot, if you’re a beginner.

In this step, you need to eliminate any such errors.

When you Write A Blog Post, Avoid Repetition at all costs.

Don’t hesitate to delete an entire section if it feels unnecessary.

I know, it feels bad to delete a particular section, on which you’ve spent hours in writing it.

But our goal is to match the searcher’s intent.

If searcher’s intent can be completed in just 500 words, why make it like a daily soap, & extend it to 1000 words?

Remember, Providing The Best User Experience, should be the Main Aim Of Our Blog, & not the other way around.


9. Hit That Publish Button Harder

publish-your-blog-post

Congratulations, you’ve successfully written the best blog post of your life.

Now just one last checkpoint to look for.

Just adjacent to your publish button, there’s a preview button (in WordPress).

Click this preview button, & check for the last time how your blog post looks to your readers.

In the preview tab, cross-check everything.

All your links should be working fine. Check placement of your affiliate links.

Open all the links to make sure no link is dead.

If a person clicks on a link on your page, & the link doesn’t performs the desired action, it delivers the worst User Experience.

So, check everything thoroughly.
