How to improve your blog's SEO for more traffic

As I've mentioned before, your blog is a great way to increase your SEO, but optimizing your blog is an important step to making it the best you can.

There are a few ways you can do this, and it might take a few months, but you'll really see a difference in your SEO, and you'll be glad you did it!

So here we go, here are a few ways you can optimize your blog and take the seo game by storm!

Get your keywords

I know you've heard all about this one. And you if you're in the coaching industry, I have a free list of keywords for you here.

If you're not in the coaching field, I recommend using google keywords to get the keywords needed.

Keyword your post title

Now that you have your relevant keywords, go ahead and pop one of those in the title. Make sure to format it for SEO standards as well.

for example: Instead of "Optimizing your blog post" Try "How to improve your blog's SEO for more traffic"

it makes a difference!


Most blogging sites will preset your permalinks to the name of the post. If that's the case, you can leave it that way. But after it's published, it's important to never change it. So don't worry about your old posts, but going forward, take the extra few minutes to double-check it, and edit it if necessary.

Mobile devices

87% of people view their online searches on their websites. You do not want to have a website that you easily view on a mobile device. So it's really important to edit the mobile version of your website too.

Optimize images

Images are great to use in blog posts, but you have to make sure you're doing it right. Compress your images, rename the files, and use that alt text!

Don't get too lengthy

Some people think that in order to rank on Google, the more words you have on your website, the better. I'm here to tell you that's not always the case. In fact, it rarely is.

Having non-relevant content, or too many words in your blog, will just hurt your SEO.

Aim for 700-1200 words per post. Remember to use your keywords, but not to overdo it.

Now you're well on your way to optimizing your blog posts.

And if you need an extra hand, you know where to find me!
