Hi Nikhil and Jane, you made some really great points. I find it hard to always reach the 2,000 word point. I also often forget my CTA – I have some work to do on those techniques.
I have been doing more research on keywords and have found it to be help. I also promote my posts more too which I didn’t do enough of in the beginning.
Thanks for the tips and reminders! Enjoy your day.

Hi Nikhil and Jane,

Great tips for creating the perfect blog post. One of the things that I do is I’ll brainstorm my ideas for months in advance.

This makes it easy for me to just sit down and write. In the past, I used to try to come up with a topic before writing. That’s just too much pressure for me.

I’ve heard that the longer content tends to perform better. Most of my posts are 1,000 – 1,500 words long. The only time that my content tends to get over 2,000 is when I write a tutorial.

At first, I used to try to make all my blog posts at least 1,500 words long. Now I don’t focus so much on the word count.

As long as I can get the point across in my article, I figure that’s enough. Only time will tell how my content does with organic traffic.

Thanks for sharing these tips have a great day 🙂

Susan

Hello Nikhil,

Good to see you here on Jane’s site.

Some great points you have discussed here. I have always struggled to make my content in-depth enough. I feel worried what
if it goes to long.

I have been working on with keywords, one of the most difficult area for me. I have been using Longtail pro and it has help
me out very well.

Thanks for the the wake up call for getting things again in organized manner.

Hi Nikhil and Jane,

An outstanding blog post checklist to follow to craft a perfect article in 2017.

You listed every thing that should be followed to create a killer blog post.

Agreed with you, the title is what grabs more attention of your reader & yup; I use Coschedule Headline Analyzer to make sure my title is fine enough.

Another factor that plays a vital role in creating a better content is to have a compelling introduction (as you said in the post,) which doesn’t only make readers keep sticking to your content but it also decreases your bounce rate which helps in SEO as well.

Number #4 point is yet another great idea to make the post looks interesting and make readers read the most important points of your article with ease.

I recommended the same strategy to my readers on one of the Bloggingmotive (dot) com articles – 25 Reasons Your Blog Visitors Don’t Read Your Blog Posts (And How To Fix Them)

Visual content is what helps the most. Lenght of the blog post matters as well. To remove this confusion, I even wrote an article on my blog – Series Of Blog Posts Vs. Long Blog Post to let me readers know which one is better for them.

And finally, CTA is important as well. Getting traffic to a piece of content is great, but if that traffic can’t convert, it’s just useless. And a beautiful CTA button is what’s going to help you to convert your visitor into subscriber or customer.

Seriously an excellent post, guys. Tweeting it now. 🙂

Cheers,
Shakir
