How do I get my blog posts on top of Search Engine Results

Every blogger want to be seen on top of Google Search Engine Result Pages also called SERPs. This is digital era. Writing a blog and not seen on SERPs is very much like leaving the money on table. This is pain point of many bloggers and gain point for SEO companies. If you have written a blog post or planning for it and want to be seen on search results here are some points to consider

10 tips to show your blog posts on top of search engine result pages (serps)


1. Your post idea is great. Ask yourself, what problem this post is going to solve?
2. Write for the audience. Massive content is generated every minute. From observations I know average user stays on a webpage for less than a minute. A very small population truly read whole post, normally people look for key points. Instead of reading thoroughly people quick scan through a post. Write in bulleted points or numbered points.
3. Give references. Perhaps, you are an expert in your field but without references people are less likely to trust you, especially if your blog post is something of academic nature or a case study. It should be backed by facts and figures.
4. Post length should be ideal, long enough to entertain the audience, short enough to raise the curiosity. If your blog post is ideal, divide it into subsections with correct tags.

5. Write a catchy and attractive headline. Headlines with a how, number, why, comparison type, predictions, trends etc raise more eyebrows.
6. Write the tags correctly. I prefer writing 3 tags for my posts.
7. Include an image; an attractive visual has the power to stop the audience on your webpage.
8. At the end of the blog post include a call to action and ask for social shares.
9. Now once your blog post is published,find the audience for it, discuss their problems, offer them a solution, and in the end of the discussion give your link for more details.
10. Build your tribe. Find the people who are solving similar problems or author problems of your audience, listen, communicate and convert.

Do these steps and your will get massive share, comments and emails. If your audience are happy Google will be happy to display your post of top of search results.

ISPs has there own ways of making holes in every pocket. No one is spared. Data has become basic need of the times and ISPs making good profits. But question is how much data? Are we not overusing it. Shall there become a time when data will be in danger of becoming extinct and we will need to make campaigns same ways as we do it today for air, water or electricity?
