How to write seo friendly blog posts

Focus keyword

Do some research and find a keyword with many searches.

You should add the focus keyword in the first 50 words of the first paragraph, in bold text and also use it in some headings.

Sections and paragraphs

Try to follow these rules when it comes to paragraphs and subheadings.


None of the paragraphs should be longer than 150 words.

Add paragraphs in Notes


The sections of the article are delimited by headings or subheadings.

For cornerstone content, a section shouldn’t be longer than 250 words.

For normal content, a section shouldn’t be longer than 300 words.

Add sections in Notes


There are also some rules when it comes to sentences:

  1. Do not use sentences longer than 20 words.

Call-to-action button

Think about the call-to-action buttons you will use.

Content length

In the beginning, when you are doing research and checking blog posts with the topic you are going to discuss, look at their length and try to use the same number of words or even more.

Tip: Longer blog posts work better for SEO.

Content lenght

Table of contents

Create a table of contents so you have a better view of the whole article before you start writing it.

This is also useful for the readers.

You can even update it later if you will have new ideas.


The distribution of the headings should start from H2 at the beginning to H6 at the end. Try to not mix the order.

Try to add more H2 and H3 compared to the rest of them.


Choose the title of the article.

You can write some title ideas and decide what is the most suitable after you have finished the article.

Other keywords

Besides the focus keyword, you can also add other keywords.

Do some keyword research first. You can use a tool that suggests what keywords to use based on people's searches on the internet.

Distribute them in such a manner that they look natural and avoid keyword stuffing.



Before you start writing your blog post, you can create an outline so you know exactly what you are going to say, and have a clear goal to achieve.

Choose a topic that your audience will enjoy.
