So often we type keywords, or terms, into search engines and what we are looking for is not present. This is because the old algorithm for most search engines was to look for website who had those key terms.

How to Blog: WordPress Media

Text on a plain page can be somewhat boring at times.wordpress media

Spice your page up with some Media !

When adding media there is a fine line between to many pictures and not enough. The number of images added to a post is dependent on the nature of the post. As you may or may not have noticed most business articles only have 1 image, sometimes 2. They do not want the reader distracted from information that is being provided. Most blogs may have 2 or 3 images through out the post. Dependent on the blog, it may be a more personal business feel or life journey that one wants to express with the reader. At times images can help explain what words can’t.

WordPress Media

Directly below the WordPress Post Option there is a Media Option. It is in this section where you can upload images from your computer to place into your blog posts. It is also here where you can manage the images that are in your media library.

Lets take WordPress Media a step further !

Image Edit Options:

  • Caption
  • Description
  • Alternate Text

Caption: A short title that explains the image

Description: 1 – 2 sentence description of what is going on in the picture

Of all of the Edit options available, they are optional. You do not have to fill them out. The benefit however is if someone is unable to view the image there is a description there for them to read.

The decision to utilize what you have available is always up to you !

How To Blog: Bold, Italics, Underline

how to bold

Much like the H1, H2, H3 – H6 headings, bold, italics and underlining are also meta descriptions that search engine spiders read.

Bold, Italics and underline help with on page seo factors.

It is not necessary to do all three in a blog post , but highlighting your keywords words/word a few times throughout the post will suffice.

Using Bold, Italics, & Underlinebold italics underline

When using these font options, be weary of over use.

Throughout my blog post you will notice I mainly use bold to highlight important content that I want a reader to take note of. I would advise that you do the same. Since bold font stands out on a page, use this option for important phrases and keywords throughout your blog post. It is not necessary to bold your keywords every chance you get.

The Italics I mainly use as an undertone in my blog post. Not necessarily pertinent information that is important but more as an opinion or a side note for someone to take into consideration.

Underline I hardly use. If you do see the underline is used with keywords or highlighting links.

With the three text options available it is good to take note of what works for you as well as what your readers respond to.

How to Blog : Content & Linking

kingcontent

Blogging is fun !

Whether it be to sell an item or share a story.

In both situations you want to make sure you are providing “Golden Content”.

If you want readers to continually visit your page, it behooves you to provide eye catching, cleverly worded articles to get them to come back for more.

The content you are to provide is dependent on the nature of your blog, be it personal or business.

In both cases you are blogging in a niche. Yes even in your personal life there is a niche you belong to. Niche marketing does not only apply to business, but personal stories as well. Who knew !

Content is King !

In any post you want to have at least 500 words and a keyword density of 3-5%. Some sites will let you get away with 300 word minimum , but shooting for 500 words is best. It is not a lengthy article but it keeps the reader on your site a little longer than 300 words.

With a keyword density of 3-5%, when search engine spiders crawl through your post they are able to see what that particular post is about. To help you achieve a 3-5% density you can use different variations of the word , and different context. Linking your keyword to relative post related to it will also help.

Obtaining a 500 word post with 3-5% keyword density will help with your on page SEO.

With the new Google penguin , search engines now rank your post based on relevancy to your keyword, how long people stay on your site and leaving, and social interaction.

If your content is compelling or informative enough you can have someone clicking around on your site for hours.

>>Learn How Content Equals Cash<<

Linking Text content

  1. Highlight Text you wish to Be linked
  2. Click the Link Symbol (it is only illuminated when text is highlighted )
  3. Pink the URL you wish the Text to be linked to
  4. Hit Add link

* to unlink highlight and click the Un-Link symbol, also only illuminated when text highlighted or already linked.

Linking text is a great tool to use when suggesting other website for individuals to check out.

With text linking you can link any URL you wish, capture page, YouTube Video, Twitter, Pintrest Profile, you name it.

Text link one form blogs may use to charge companies to advertise on their blog.

I am sure you have come across blogs, where if you hover over a certain word an ad pops up. If you click the ad you are taken to the offer and that blogger makes whatever the company has negotiated with her/him. Great easy way to make some quick cash.

Now that you are aware of linking text be sure not to get link happy. Dependent on the length of the article linking 2 – 3 words or phrases is fine. If you begin to link at least one word in every sentence it will distract the reader from the article. Remember you are trying to keep them on your site.  Keep the text linking to a minimum on only link to important information you wish the reader to know. Also ensure that the word being linked is relative to the page you are having them sent to.

Content creation is one of the hardest things in blogging. It can make or break a blogger.

Starting off you may have all sorts of ideas to write about, write them down.

Good Luck Creating Content and finding the balance between linking words.
