Traffic is the main things for a blog and as you know getting traffic for your post is really a tedious task for bloggers especially when it comes to dragging traffic with your older posts. One of the best ways to keep dragging traffic for your recent posts is make them search engine friendly. In long run, it is only search engine which can help you to get traffic for your posts.  In this article I’m going to share some of the tips for you to write SEO optimized articles for your WP blog which will help you to get betterranking and your content will rank higher or crawl better in major search engines like Google.

As you know that every blog post is like a web page in terms of search engine and you can always optimize your each and every blog posts for search engine for specific keywords. Though there are certain things which you should keep in mind and that I’ll be discussing right in this post.

SEO Optimized Articles writing:

1. Post Title and Meta Title

First thing which you should understand is how post title and Meta title are different:

Post Title: This is the title that how your visitor will see your post.

Post Meta Title: Post Meta Title is what search engine will see and show your post in search results. So, it is always a good activity to keep your target keywords in Post Title and Meta Title. Usually, Post title is H1 tag and it’s important to keep your target keywords in post title.

2. Post Meta Keywords:

Post Meta keyword is one of the most crucial part of your content SEO and it has been seen that most blogger tends to ignore it. Every post your write is very important from ranking and traffic point of view. The most common mistake that we make is by using generic keywords in every blog post. For example when we write a post with the title:

## Pulse: Best messenger applications for I phone

## We use many keywords like: messenger, Pulse, I phone, application and so on.

This is really not the best keywords because you are trying to rank your post for generic keywords. Do you think that individual post should rank for keyword: messenger, Pulse, I phone, application? You can use keyword research tools like Traffic Travis to see keyword competition and searches/month.

This will help you in picking up the best keyword for your blog post.  For example:

## Pulse: Best messenger applications for I phone

## Keyword: Best I phone messenger application, messenger applications for I phone.

3. Image Alt attribute:

This is one thing that most of the bloggers usually ignore. We use software’s like snag or use site’s to find the image for our post. Though we never tries to optimize the images for keywords. It is always a good idea to keep the name relevant to image itself. For example: you take screenshot of Adsense and use name as Adsense but again it is not targeted and so instead you should use name as Adsense dashboard.

For best results you can sue WP Plug-in name SEO friendly image, which uses the image name as ALT. attributes and thus when visitors search the image in Google image search, they will automatically land on your blog posts.

4. Interlink and Anchor text:

When you are posting your new blog post then try to link it back to your older posts so that reader will find the old [posts and also search engines will re-crawl the old blog posts. Now when you interlink your blog posts, you should use the anchor text techniques to interlink. You can also use Plug-in name Word press Insights which helps you to interlink quickly.


Generally we use ‘’The’’ styling feature to style blog post which is good but as the same time you can’t ignore an important part of SEO and that is proper use of H1 H2 and H3 heading. Being human we tend to make mistakes but it is also true that we can learn a lot from our mistakes and same is the situation with SEO. So learning from your mistakes always try to write quality and well SEO optimized article for your blog.
