Steps to Crafting a Blog PostIt is intimidating!
You know you should publish a new blog post. Nonetheless, the thought of writing one holds you back.
It is tough to write a blog post!
It is even tougher to write one that gets read!
The level of toughness finds no bounds when you demand more comments, shares and conversions.
I am not going to say it is easy to create a blog post, neither do I think so. Instead, you are going to read the best way to craft a blog post here. The best way to write a blog post that gets read, that gets tons of organic visits.
Remember, by best, I don’t mean the easiest!

Best Way to Craft a Blog Post

I divide the process of creating a blog post into three parts.
#1. Research
#2. Creation
#3. Polishing
I know there are some small steps in between these steps. But let’s forget those right now and get into the three I just shared.
Step 1: Researching
Researching involves in various steps. First, you have to research for a topic. If you are a person who believes in the power of keywords, this can be considered as keyword research.
At this step, you have to find a primary keyword with decent search volume. Moreover, I recommend you grab some related keywords too. I use Google Keyword Planner and Keywords Everywhere extension for this purpose.
In order to find the best topic, I also check popular blogs in my niche. In the case of scarcity of ideas, I just steal my competitor keywords. SEMRush is my Swiss army knife in this regard.
Next is analyzing the competition. Do you see any YouTube videos or ecommerce sites ranking on the first page? Just pick that keyword without a second thought, provided it has good search volume. For keywords with authority blogs ranking on search engines, you will have to work hard.
Once I grab a good number of keywords (at least 1+ 14 {1 main and 14 related}), I will move on to researching for the content.
Here I check all the sites that are ranking for that particular keyword. If it is a tutorial type, I will rule out all the outdated methods. And, I gather all the ideas from the pages to come up with an extensive guide. Just open a Notepad and insert all the ideas into it.
Make sure you gather valid ideas only. Eliminate all those that don’t make any sense.

Step 2: Writing Content

In blogging, content writing is the most significant process after keyword research. Once you find out the keywords (at least 15) and the ideas to put into the blog post, you can start writing the content.
Mostly, I follow the outline given below. You can also go with the same.
Post Title
H2 with Primary Keyword
A few lines
H3 Tag
H3 Tag
A few lines
I always try to include primary keyword in the title, introduction, H2 and the conclusion. Keyword density should not be vigorous. Just 0.4- 0.5% is enough. But you have to use related keywords every now and then.
You can consciously make contexts to use the keyword. But don’t make it look weird and unnatural.
I appreciate if you can insert the primary keyword and a few related keywords in H3 tag also. Sometimes, you have to use H4 and H5 tags too according to the nature of the blog post.
Make sure your keywords stay as far as possible. And, it is a good practice to bold, italicize and underline those.
I think you don’t need my two cents to know the importance of using images and alt tags.
When it comes to crafting blog post titles, you must bear a few things in your mind.
Try your level best to bring the keyword in it.

Step 3: Polishing the Article

Polishing the article includes different processes. The very first thing is proofreading your content for typos and grammar mistakes.
Maybe, you aren’t a great writer. But that is not an excuse for writing shabby content. You can seek the help of an automated proofreader like Grammarly to decrease errors in your write-ups. Search engines love error-free content and, as a marketer who looks forward to getting the maximum organic visits, you must minimize your errors.
 ……… Even after proofreading with Grammarly, you can manually check the article. I recommend reading it aloud to check the flow.
Once you finish with proofreading, you should check the on-page SEO.
Check the keyword usages in the title, headings and in the body of the article as well. Also, ensure that your content includes ample related keywords.
Then check you used at least one image with the primary keywords as the alt tag. In case of multiple images, you can use related keywords as alt tags as well.
On completing all these, you can load the content to the blog post editor. Make sure the permalink also contains the primary keyword. For the quickest SEO analysis, I use Yoast’s plugin. There are both free and paid versions available.
Finally, hit Publish. There you go!
