If you only put information in words it may bore your viewers and it also makes your all articles looks similar, so try to explain your views in different way in different posts, such as you can put flow charts, images, info-graphics, videos, sliders etc.
FIND THE EXACT KEYWORD FOR YOUR POST ::
While writing a post, make sure that you select a “KEY WORD” for that post. Key Word is the word through which the whole post can be briefed. Hence your Key Word should be most appropriate. Use your Key Word in your post as much as you can as the Key Word density should be high to make it optimize by search engines and try to mention the Key Word by making it Bold at least once in your entire post.
It’s better if you can use your Key Word/ Key Phrase at least for 3-4 times in your introduction only, besides that try to use it in your any subheading which also called as H2. The Key Word or Phrase will appear with the URL of your post’s web page.
