This will help you to know your competitor’s opinion on the same topic. Now you have to gather all your ideas.

3. Create an outstanding headline
Headlines are the welcome part of your blog post. There is no one to spend more time to find what to read.
They will just google the keyword. And go through the headlines of all the results. Read those headlines and chose one.
So, if your title is not interesting no one will read your content. It is important to create a title in a creative way.
Many of the bloggers fail only because of their headlines even they are having quality content inside.
So how should I write my headlines?
I have analyzed 100 search results on the keyword online marketing. And I found including brackets and parenthesis on headline work better than the other.
I recommend you to make use of including these on headlines.
- Add emotions to the headlines
- Include numbers, brackets
- Generate curiosity
- Ask a question
Similarly, it’s not a good practice to write something on the headline and give something else inside. So, tell the truth on the headlines and make it click-worthy.
4. Organize the data in to a blog post
Here you are on the major step to create a quality blog post. You completed your keyword research and wrote a brilliant headline for the post. It is the time to arrange all those data into a blog post.
A blog post is just like a book. It should have preface (or overview), leading to main content and conclusion. Here we will discuss the anatomy of a quality blog post.
Your content should be readable by everyone in the world. You gathered all the information for your article. Now you have to organize the data in a proper format.
While you organize the data into a blog post try to link only with authority websites. This will improve your page rank and so search rankings.
It’s proven that nobody read a lengthy paragraph. Make your paragraphs short. Make it even short if you are getting traffic from mobile devices.
You may be observed that none of my paragraphs are no longer than 6 lines. Make it short and people will read your entire article.
It’s a best practice if you link your new article to the older article. As you must know that internal linking has a vital role in the ranking.
These links can pass link juice to all posts and by doing so you will be having a boost in your organic traffic to all of your pages.
Make it conversational
You are making a conversation with your reader. So, you should keep them satisfied and engaging. As you have read my articles I write my article by including you & I.
These words can make your article in a conversational type. And asking questions or producing anxiety also helps the user keep engaging.
Google wants to show the best results to their users. That’s why Google ranks the website which contains lots of information about the topic.
That’s where the length matters. Probably you searched the term SEO on google.
And also, it’s word count was more than 10000. Don’t just add information to make your article through.
Instead, research on the topic and find more LSI keywords you will find more ideas for the article. And there is the average search result of Google is about 1500 words.
5. Adding a call to action
You can’t get success in blogging if you don’t have an audience. So, building an audience is an important work for a blogger. One of the best ways to build such an audience by using lead generation.
