Are you busy .Can’t get a grip of Google keywords.
I was in the same boat.When I started blogging my baby was 2 and a half year old and I was working full time.I read keywords are important.
I had used Google keywords for a few of my posts.
But the problem was ,could I do it before every post?
For a mompreneur that’s impossible.
But the truth was I needed to learn about keywords.
I wanted my readers to find me.
That’s when I researched and found out the hacks.
Read quicksprouts.com for details about all topics related to SEO and keywords.
It’s a favourite.
Now what worked for me.
Blogging is writing in vaccum
You need to give signals.
That’s your keywords.
Where do you give signal?
At traffic lights .Right?
Your posts in your blog,social media specially Pinterest works great with keywords.
When someone searches for those or related keywords google sends them to you.
But google keywords takes time to get a hang of.Specially for busy moms
Don’t worry you will get it soon.Just keep at it.
Till then I will tell you 5 hacks to make keywords quicker.
First 3 Qs
- Who are you writing for?
The audience persona.
Have an image in your head.
That makes your blog human.
- Now what are your interests?
What do you write about?
Your blog should have around 10 to 15 quality posts which are your pillar contents.Write what you love otherwise it’s boring.
Make it valuable to your reader by
Making them happy :Fiction
Making them take an action:nonfiction writers.
Then you start aiming for keywords 1 post at a time.
# Hack 2
Think of the topic you are writing about Write it.
Now think of a long sentence which a reader may search for the topic
Type that in the Google search box.
Don’t press enter .See what google is showing.These are gold.
Now Press enter.
Do it on your laptop.
Look at the top left corner .
It shows you the no.of search results.
Aim for 50000 to 5 lakh.
That’s a good number..You want this to be a popular enough topic without being difficult to rank for.
Now look at the bottom of the search result.
A box shows you a few, readers also searched for topics.
Write these down.
Use it mixed in your primary key word
Google ranks you higher when you use related terms.
Does the page show ads ?
That means it’s a popular topic.
Check their Alexa rank.
That will give you an idea about how easy will it be to outrank it.
Use Quora to see what readers are looking for.
Really useful for nonfiction .
Use the Yoast SEO PLUGIN. But don’t cry if it’s not always green.You write for your audience and search engines will find you .
