- The content should be written in a clear and simple way so that the target audience can understand it and we can hook you to read the entire article. In this regard, it is always recommended to use some keywords within the text itself and certain topics that are of interest. If we also divide all the content with more attractive titles and sections, we will help make their reading more agile.
- The blog description will be the one that marks the summary that users see in the search engines so you have to make an effort to create a short description that reflects the content of the blog and is striking to attract users to click and get in.
- The links are another key that will help us position our blog so we can create relevant content to the page itself or to other pages relevant to provide more resources to readers.
- The visual part, that is, the images must be creative and attractive and must be with personalized titles that contain the keyword that we want to position.
- Using social networks is a tool that can help us to position the blog even better, so it is important to include the different interactions within the posts themselves and encourage “Likes” and the times it is shared through social channels such as They can be Facebook, Youtube, Google +, Twitter or Instagram which are the most powerful today.
